About Startup

Influencers X Fashion, From Japan to the World.

Vision

We are committed to build innovative solutions in order to uphold, share, and preserve the things in life that are rare, remarkable and beautiful.

Mission

Our mission is to bring Japanese fashion to the world, and build scalable solutions through technology in order overcome language and cultural barriers.

Problem & Opportunity

Have you ever considered the Japanese influencers which impact your daily life? The world has anime thanks to online streaming, we can enjoy sushi from a local restaurant, we can pass the time in quarantine with video games thanks to inventions by Sony and Nintendo, but when it comes to Japanese fashion, have you ever thought about what outlets are available to you?

Value proposition

AoiShip is the world’s first global e-commerce marketplace connecting Influencers with curated fashion from Japan. Our platform brings Japanese fashion online to the world through powerful social media system integration. Through its Influencer Network, shoppers around the world can and earn income by influencing others with their fashion purchase utilizing integrated API integrations and posting them online.

Business model

Our business utilizes a commission-based model. We operate by Consignment and Drop Shipment. Both models are offered to our partner brands. AoiShip on average earns 30% commission on each retail sale. Shipping fees are incurred by the customer, and AoiShip handles all marketing and logistics to international markets on behalf of the fashion brands.

Go-to-market plan

Before the world of COVID-19, Southeast Asia was the most promising market of all responsive to our Influencers X Japanese Fashion marketing tests. We are now waiting to see how world economies will change before we re-formulate our strategy.

Management team

Our team has a passion for the Tokyo fashion scene and is uniquely connected to the industry in Japan through long-developed connections and relationships in the Omotesando, Daikanyama, and Aoyoma districts near Shibuya, Tokyo.
