Aug. 6, 2014 - PRLog -- (Santa Clara, CA) August 6, 2014 – Ranan Lachman, Founder and CEO of Pley, has just been announced as one of five finalists for the Entrepreneur of 2014 contest, the most prestigious award bestowed upon entrepreneurs today, in the Emerging Entrepreneur category. Now through September 19, the community can vote for Lachman to become the Entrepreneur of 2014.

In 2013, Lachman and Elina Furman co-founded the toy-sharing, e-commerce company, Pley. Known as the “Netflix-for-LEGO®,” Pley leverages the sharing economy to enable thousands of families to enjoy educational toys without the need to buy expensive toys that are rarely used and quickly neglected.  Pley provides families a more natural way to consume products, which is eco-friendly, affordable and more convenient. Families pay only for the experience of using a toy and just for the time their child plays with it.

“I am thrilled to be selected as a finalist for Entrepreneur Magazine’s Entrepreneur of 2014, and to be in such good company,” noted Lachman. “It has been exciting year building and growing Pley and seeing the pictures of thousands of happy families that use our service. Our rental platform is used by parents who appreciate playing with educational toys that develop important cognitive skills rather having their kids spend hours in front of digital screens. Our service provides a positive footprint by saving a tree during the lifecycle of each LEGO set that we rent. We are solving a real pain point for parents and I am deeply honored to be recognized alongside my fellow finalists”

“Each a change-agent in his/her own right, this year’s finalists are solving problems for a variety of demographics in extraordinary ways,” said Amy Cosper, VP/editor in chief at Entrepreneur. “Now that we’ve narrowed down the final set from one of the most impressive entrant pools to date, we’re eager to see what happens next in the voting phase. The results will show us which entrepreneurs the small-business community connects with most deeply, and their votes of support will help us determine the ultimate winners.”
