Participating Dutch startups
Looklive– makes the apparel, shoes and accessories in celebrity images and TV shows interactive and shoppable. This is valuable because LookLive unlocks the fashion and commerce potential of TV shows and celebrity images turning them into a new, large opportunity to drive sales, create revenue, new advertising opportunities and valuable connections between TV shows, celebrities, retailers, brands and shoppers. LookLive does this through building scalable, proprietary machine learning (artificial intelligence) technology that supports identifying the actual products that appear on the celebrities, TV show characters and music videos. The same technology also creates “style profiles” for users that predict products and trends they will be most interested in.
