The Shift 100 has been put together to identify retail technology entrepreneurs who are bringing new ideas and products to market, creating integrated customer experiences and leading the move away from traditional ‘clicks and mortar’ e-commerce.
These entrepreneurs have been selected because they are dynamic, agile and shifting gears. They have brought an innovative product to market, cleverly harnessed a technology or process, led the revolutionary execution of a new technology and disrupted their markets.
Sach Kukadia and Nish Kukadia have been recognised within retail technology Shift 100 in association with KPMG Small Business Accounting.
The Kukadia brothers founded the designer fashion site Secret Sales in 2007. The brothers were influenced by fashion and took an interest from their father, being one of the early directors of Pepe. After studying, they went into import-export until they decided taking on a family friend’s French model and making it relevant for the UK.
Although it has taken time to make a profit, the founder’s claim, as revenues rise 20pc year on year to hit £47m in gross turnover for 2015. The aim of the site is to offer over half price discounts for members only.
USP: One of the largest flash discount websites in the UK offering luxury brand products for the fraction of the price.
