Tech5 Award: Lesara is Germany's fastest growing E-Commerce start-up

Berlin, 27.04.2016 - Lesara, the international online shop for fashion and lifestyle products, has been acknowledged as Germany‘s fastest growing tech-start-up in 2015 by the jury of the Tech5 Awards, a competition seeking out the fastest growing start-ups in Europe. Lesara found itself in the final round of the German nationals and won, beating four other nominees. They will now advance onto the European rounds at the end of May as the only German company in the running. Additionally, the Berlin online retailer is planning on presenting itself to the European tech scene at the renowned The Next Web Conference on May 26th and 27th..

The competition by international tech magazine The Next Web and global payment provider Adyen, awards young companies for their growth. Volker Steinle, Adyen Country Manager Germany, expands on the initiative by explaining that "For the third time we are promoting the Tech5 competition together with The Next Web. The Next Web was one of Adyen’s very first customers and our partnership symbolises the enormous and rapid growth of both companies. As such, it is especially important to us to support young start-ups with similar rapid growth, with help and advice".

Roman Kirsch, founder and CEO of Lesara says: „ The Tech5 nomination is a great honour. Two years following the founding of Lesara, we now sell our products throughout Europe and are an innovative forerunner in the field of online ‘Fast & Agile Retail’. The high customer demand and satisfaction spurs us on here at Lesara to give our all every day.”

The business model of this Berlin online retailer, established in November 2013 and with offices in Guangzhou and Shenzhen (China), aims to sustainably change the world of fast retail. Through data-driven trend analysis, direct contact with producers around the world and optimised logistics, the latest trend products can be produced within a much shorter time, at better quality and cheaper than other comparable products. Products are also made available and accessible to everyone worldwide around the clock. From the very beginning the company invested heavily in excellent customer service in order to provide their customers with an outstanding retail experience.

This year has thus far been doubly successful for founder Roman Kirsch: In January, the renowned US business magazine Forbes named him in their highly esteemed "30 under 30" list of Europe’s most talented young entrepreneurs.
