The idea is to help young entrepreneurs achieve their goals. Not just through investment but also by putting Groupe resources at their disposal for a year
— Maurice Levy, Global CEO Publicis
More than 6 months ago, Publicis Groupe, the third largest advertising and PR firm in the world, announced Publicis90 - a global competition to both find and fund 90 startups and entrepreneurs in celebration of the company’s 90th birthday. 3,516 final applications from start-ups and entrepreneurs across 141 countries entered the competition, shortlisted to 320 finalists in April.
As announced by Publicis today, at a dedicated awards ceremony at the Viva Technology conference in Paris, Parcelly is one of the 15 Gold winners of the Publicis90 initiative.
Being selected as a winner in this prestigious competition is a true testament to Parcelly’s recent success as an on-demand collection point service. As E-commerce is now the fastest growing retail market in Europe, a mobile based click and collect solution like ours is exactly where customer demands are turning. With Parcelly, consumers enjoy more control and can decide where and when is most convenient for them to collect their online purchases.
We are extremely excited to belong to this selected group of GOLD winners. We have ambitious plans and aim to be the first choice for consumers when it comes to last mile delivery in the UK and beyond. The support and investment of a prestigious global Advertising and PR expert like Publicis will help further drive our brand building activities and fast-track our growth.
Sebastian Steinhauser, CEO & Founder of Parcelly
