It’s a pleasure to work in an environment that is properly capitalized and to participate in pioneering the next great stage of expansion for Blenz.”
Ehsan Baloochy, CEO & Founder of SocialShopper
Ehsan is part-social, part-serial entreprenuer. He has been starting e-commerce and luxury fashion businesses since the age of 14. He's not just a bsuienss man, he's also a compassionate and caring visionary. In both his personal and professional life, whatever endeavor he takes on. Ehsan ensures it is a win-win-win situation for all parties, which has helped tremendously in his decision making. He's used that philosophy in his role as Founder & CEO of a very successful Vancouver-based social commerce site; SocialShopper.com, which is 2nd place in Vancouver, after multi-billion dollar giant Groupon.com. He's been able to successfully combine the power of collective purchasing for not only featuring daily deals, but by using that same platform for many charitable and community-based initiatives as well.
"At SocialShopper, we have a lot of interesting ideas which we plan on rolling out very soon. I think there's a huge opportunity in the social, mobile and local commerce space, and we are positioning ourselves to continuously evolve and execute towards that mission. Our unique anti-corporate company culture has also played a great role in allowing our staff to work in open-minded environments and to think outside the box, by ensuring we make a positive impact, not just as a socially conscious company, but as responsible citizens in the communities we live in", says Ehsan.
Here's a recent interview with Ehsan.
