Bespoke Post raises $8M to broach a monthly ‘box of awesome’ for men


Thanks to a Internet, we can sequence unchanging deliveries of all from wardrobe to razors to geeky memorabilia. With Bespoke Post, you’re not only singular to one form of products — it ships a patron “box of awesome” that could be focused on style, travel, ethanol or something else entirely.

Co-founder and CEO Rishi Prabhu explained that a idea is to curate “the best products for a complicated man.” And Bespoke Post’s selections customarily come from artisanal brands — a kind of thing we wouldn’t find on many store shelves, or even on Amazon.

Not that a startup is throwing a squeeze bag of products together and shipping it out to all a members. Instead, Prabhu pronounced his group creates between 10 and 20 boxes any month, afterwards recommends opposite boxes to opposite members formed on their interests. For example, a stream lineup includes a box of cocktail creation supplies, a box of hosiery and more.

Bespoke Post members get a new box idea each month, though there’s no requirement to buy anything. And while a boxes cost $45, Prabhu pronounced a products inside always have a sell value “north of $70.”

The startup is announcing that it has lifted a $8 million in funding, many recently in a $6 million Series A. Investors include Walden Venture Capital, Scout Ventures and Kiwi Venture Partners.

Bespoke Post indeed launched behind in 2012, though Prabhu pronounced a association was “really lean” and “slightly underneath a radar,” so it was means to grow to a group of scarcely 40 people, with some-more than 100,000 subscribers in a U.S. and Canada, before lifting a Series A.

Prabhu also mentioned that 93 percent of those subscribers are group — women are acquire to subscribe, though he sees that series as a good sign.

“We’ve somehow figured out that pivotal masculine demographic,” he said.
