Lucas Poelman – Styliff

BSc International Business

Lucas joined Styliff – the start-up specialising in virtual dressing technology for the online fashion retail and corporate workwear markets – to help develop the business.

He has been instrumental in the company’s growth – securing business funding, developing the business strategy, and negotiating deals with well-known fashion brands and corporate clients such as Lidl. With his support, Styliff’s partnership deals have grown from 10 to 120 companies, and he put together the successful applications to the UKTI Global Entrepreneur Programme; London Partners; and the ABC Acceleration Engine, sponsored by IBM. 

He is credited with doubling Styliff’s market value and, in recognition of his outstanding work, Lucas is now the company Sales Director and Co-Founder, and remains an indispensable member of the Styliff team.
