Shoptiques — Former model and Goldman Sachs analyst Olga Vidisheva (HBS ’11) got the idea for Shoptiques after finding a pair of shoes at a boutique in Paris, and realizing she’d have to board a plane if she ever wanted to shop there again. Her frustration grew when she moved to Boston for business school and left behind her favorite New York boutiques—which didn’t have an online presence. After an internship at Channel during summer 2010, Vidisheva returned to Harvard to work on Shoptiques as an online shopping source for boutique inventory, and was among the top 10 finalists in the school’s business plan competition.”We find the world’s most exceptional boutiques and put them online,” thanks to e-commerce technology and even a global network of photographers that shoot pictures of boutiques’ inventory, says Vidisheva. Shoptiques is currently operating in private beta mode in preparation for a public launch next month, and is in the process of raising a funding round.
