Detroit Startup, Bloomscape, Raises $7.5M in Series A

Detroit-based eCommerce startup, Bloomscape, announced $7.5 million in Series A funding today. The direct-to-consumer plant company has disrupted the plant industry, bringing a millennial sense of cool to the way consumers purchase and care for their plants. 

As a growing leader in the $50B category, Bloomscape founder Justin Mast has created his own path to success by prioritizing a strong sense of brand identity and community amongst customers. The self-proclaimed "plant parents" have taken advantage of the brand's convenient purchasing experience and high-quality horticultural options.

Curious to know more? Let's get started.

 

How it works

Customers go the Bloomscape website to browse more than 90 varieties of plants. Once they've found the one, the potted plant is shipped from the company's Grand Rapids greenhouse, straight to the consumer's door.

 

Who's invested

The new financial backing comes from, in part, Revolution Ventures and Endeavor, as well as other co-founders of other brand-forward companies like Away, Allbirds, Harry's and Warby Parker.
