From the Co-founders
Jaclyn Ling the CEO of Blynk has a prevailing taste of fashion since ever. “I went from wanting to wear dresses everyday in pre-school, to wearing tinted prescription glasses in high school, to creating a fashion Youtube channel that has near 1 million video views in university, to creating Blynk post-university”.
Shums Kassam- CTO is a developer as well as business developer. The story behind teaming up the company is indeed a different one it started with one “life-changing” shopping trip, then rising to the top in the Next 36 incubator program, to now being a finalist for a Techvibes Startup Award for 2014.
“Shums was the biggest project I came across in years. I sensed his desperate need of guidance when I saw his closet full of graphic tees and ragged jeans. I tricked him to going shopping with me, when in actuality, its sole purpose was to make him somewhat presentable if we were going to do business together. We took a 4 hour shopping trip, and spent $400. I spent time teaching him how to wear each item and for what occasion. I’m proud to say that today, people go to Shums for fashion advice”.
“Prior to meeting Jaclyn, I didn’t know the difference between a cardigan and a sweater. Upon meeting her, my lack of fashion interest was hard for Jaclyn to deal with – so I was coerced into going shopping with her. After changing my style, my confidence increased and I found value in dressing and presenting myself better – something my engineering education didn’t teach me. I began to see value in getting styled by a fashionable friend, which inspired us to replicate that experience in an app”.

Challengers in Market

Pinterest is excellent for providing fashion content, however a person is not able to search a specific occasion type without getting inconsistent and impersonal content as a result.Blynk integrates both!
Blynk’s vision is to collaborate simulated machine intelligence and the human touch to be a personal stylist. The app is soon expected to have refined algorithms to enrich its user interface for users to enjoy every outfit recommendation they receive on Blynk.
