Join us to hear about how they’re leveraging the direct-to-consumer model to simplify and personalize the vitamin supplements industry, with a key focus on marketing and growth. There will also be a moderated Q&A, refreshments, and tons of tactical insight. (You must bring a valid ID to enter) Care/of believes that the one-size-fits-all approach to health is outdated. Enter their subscription vitamin service that provides customers with ultra-personalized vitamin packs based on their unique health goals, details about their diet and lifestyle, and values. It starts with an online quiz, whose algorithm recommends a set of supplements (over 1M combinations); each personalized box is then delivered to your door, and the Instagram-friendly product comes complete with your name and a fun fact on the packaging. Since it was founded in 2016, the startup has raised $42.2M from the likes of GSIP, Tusk Ventures, RRF Ventures and more, as they continue to expand into additional consumer health categories. Before Care/of, Craig was disrupting menswear at Bonobos, while Akash was building companies out of his dorm room, and they both are Wharton alum.
