Meet Our Demo Companies:

Bonobos (https://bonobos.com/)

Launched online in 2007, Bonobos is a men’s clothing brand known for pioneering the digitally- native vertical brand movement by offering exceptional-fitting menswear and a personalized approach to service. In 2011, Bonobos ushered in the innovative offline concept, launching Bonobos Guideshops, e-commerce stores that deliver personalized, one-to-one service to those wanting to experience the brand in person.

Jet (https://jet.com/)

Reshaping e-commerce as we know it. Based in Hoboken, NJ (just 10 min from Manhattan), Jet is an eCommerce site on the relentless pursuit to build the greatest customer experience in the world. At Jet, we believe in bold. That means taking risks, asking “why not”, looking where no one’s looked before and crushing it!

Jet Black (https://www.jetblack.com/)

The first incubation startup under the Store No. 8 umbrella to launch. The platform is a personal shopping concierge service that combines the convenience of e-commerce with the customized attention of a personal assistant specifically for mom's. Backed by Wal-Mart and lead by Jenny Fleiss, former CEO of Rent the Runway, they are looking to change the future of retail.

FreeWill (https://www.freewill.com/)

A new social venture whose mission is to help people use their estate plans to do tremendous good for the people and causes they love. FreeWill provides high-quality, intuitive online tools to create estate plans, at no cost to the consumer. While drafting these documents, a user can easily leave charitable bequests in their will to causes they care about.

Meet Our Partner Charities:

One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) (http://one.laptop.org/)

A non-profit organization created to provide every child in the world with a quality, innovative education. In partnership with the Fundación Zamora Terán, OLPC works to create educational opportunities for the world’s poorest children by providing each child with access to a rugged, low-cost, connected laptop computer with content and software designed for collaborative, joyful, self-empowered learning.

New York on Tech (https://www.newyorkontech.org/)

TechSoup (https://www.techsoup.org/)

TechSoup connects nonprofits to the technology resources they need to change the world. The 12 million nonprofits around the globe work on the ground to serve billions vulnerable people, and address the world’s most pressing problems.
