DOllar shave club
a little history
Dollar Shave Club, co-founded in 2011 by Michael Dubin (CEO) and Mark Levine, is a Santa Monica-based company that delivers personal grooming products, such as razors, by mail. The company operates on a subscription-based model for home delivery rather selling through conventional retail channels. Dollar Shave Club rose quickly into the public spotlight in early 2012 through its hilarious viral video "Our Blades are F***ing Great" which has approximately 10 million views (check it out below). Dollar Shave Club initially partnered with Science, a Los Angeles-based startup accelerator, and is now backed by numerous high profile venture capital investors including Venrock, Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, Forerunner Ventures, Andreessen Horowitz, Shasta Ventures, Felicis Ventures, and White Star Capital.
