Miami, FL – October 6,2022 – ShiftPixy, Inc. (Nasdaq: PIXY) (“ShiftPixy” or “the Company”), a Florida-based national staffing enterprise which designs, manages, and sells access to a disruptive, revolutionary platform that facilitates employment in the rapidly growing Gig Economy, today discusses the Quelliv incubation process at ShiftPixy and ShiftPixy Labs. As announced on October 4, 2022, through ShiftPixy Labs which is designed to take a unique business idea from concept through to mass commercialization, the Company completed the successful incubation launch of Quelliv Inc. low level laser centers.
The incubation process at ShiftPixy Labs starts with a deep dive into commercial market potential. The teams then pull together extensive research and financial analysis to build out the business plan. The plan becomes the foundation for framing the investor case for the new business for which the teams compile all the documents and work flows to bring in investor participation.
The result is a near term public offering to bring the business to the capital markets for continued growth capital formation. The Quelliv project is being position for a capital markets entry in early 2023. They are targeting 500 stores for rollout within the next 24 months. Major influencers like Tony Robbins, and professional athletic trainers have commented on their positive experience using the Quelliv laser technology.
In ShiftPixy Labs’ operation we work through the consumer engagement process and build the mobile technology for the specific demographic target, delivering the value of the product or service. The team builds a very sticky connection through the mobile customer application that is designed to elevate customer engagement and sharpen remarketing opportunities.
“Quelliv will be another great use case for the ShiftPixy Labs. This is the first in a number of opportunities we are evaluating to apply our unique business tools. Our ultimate goal is to elevate great ideas and maximize monetization,” said ShiftPixy Co-Founder and CEO, Scott Absher. “We expect to create a number of opportunities for equity interests in these types of engagements that will flow to ShiftPixy shareholders as dividends”.
Quelliv was designed to introduce a proprietary, high value and high efficacy photobiomodulation technology trained to address a number of biological applications in the wellness market’s highest demand subsectors. Quelliv’s trained laser technology is uniquely applied to anti-aging, weight management, pain management and scalp rejuvenation. The Company has launched its initial four south Florida locations with two additional locations coming online in Q4 2022. The Company plans to launch a national rollout to major metro markets in Q1 of 2023 with a goal of 500 company owned locations throughout the US longer term.
