For the second instalment of our Start-Up Talk series on Stylescoop, Stylecab Founder, Charlotte Felix O’Conor explores the difficulties in finding the right business partners for her as she continues on her journey developing Capsule, a members-only online style platform.

Sitting at home, it's tune out time; the three musketeers are in bed and the ad man is out discussing the finer details of the property portfolios of super bankers (or is that super tankers--they seem to accumulate assets at such a fast pace, I get confused).  Anyway, I'm watching my current favourite show, The Good Wife Season 5, on iTunes, engrossed and, suddenly, it struck me, I need a Cary Agos!

Alicia Florrick and Cary Agos, business partners on the hit show The Good Wife, celebrate a victory for their law firm.

Now, don't get me wrong: finding the right partners for Stylecab has been a constant action point on the To-Do List, but the question I hadn’t answered was, who was this person?  What skills did they need that would complement our core set?  I think we’ve definitely got the fashion/style angle safely covered, but maybe this extended beyond their skill-set to their profile. Life is all about yin-yang and I enjoy the play-off of contrasts; just as in fashion, mixing one high-street piece providing a flavour of the current season’s trends together with a luxury brand that speaks to tailoring, fit and subtle elegance.

Besides my juggling skills being tested to the max, there was a potential Chinese model for Capsule to explore, as well as Capsule's affiliate programmes and integration of new technology features to enhance the consumer experience on the platform to consider in the next 6-8 months.  So who/what/where--if you know of any young (that’s the contrast!), ambitious, motivated individuals with e-commerce or data analytics experience that could be interested, send them my way.  Stylish not a requirement.
