Each one of these companies has made it through our robust due diligence pipeline to be rated a Top Deal, which is reserved for the top 5-10% of all companies we analyze. As a partner of Rocket Dollar, we are proud to give you 3 of our Top Deals for free every month.
Check out who made the list for November below- Top 3 Deals of the Month:
Aavrani: Founded in 2017, Aavrani is a digitally-native, all-natural skincare brand rooted in ancient Indian beauty rituals. The team at Aavrani has already attracted the attention of several notable angel investors, as well as venture firms. And the timing could not be more optimal, as the skincare market is beginning to shift with growing consumer concern for ethical and natural sourcing of ingredients. Not to mention, the team boasts high profit margins (~84%) and sells 100% of products on its own site, not losing any revenue to retailers.
Humphry Slocombe: In 2008, Humphry Slocombe was founded as a single ice cream shop in the Mission District of San Francisco. Co-Founders Jake Godby and Sean Vahey believed that there was a market for less “traditional” ice cream flavors and began experimenting. Think Ben and Jerry’s tailored to adults! Some of their unique combinations include Breakfast (bourbon ice cream and cornflakes), Matchadoodle (green tea ice cream and snickerdoodles), and a Blue Bottle Coffee ice cream! With over $4M in 2018 sales and a focus from the CEO to enter the wholesale channel, securing 568 wholesale accounts across 12 states, we think this team is well positioned to become a staple ice cream brand near you!.
BabyQuip: Fran Maier, an experienced entrepreneur who previously co-founded Match.com, recognized how difficult it often is for parents with young kids to travel, especially given the amount of “gear” needed for infants and toddlers. Enter BabyQuip, a baby equipment rental marketplace delivering rented baby gear to travelling parents on-demand. Though the company is still in its infancy (joke intended), Maier has a proven track record as a founder and is heavily targeting millennial trends.
