Bloom & Wild
Aron Gelbard, Ben Stanway
Bloom & Wild is an online florist that aims to simplify the process of ordering and sending flowers. Its app and website streamline the process of sending a bouquet, while the packaging allows for flowers to be delivered through letterboxes. 2015 saw the company increase its revenue sevenfold compared with 2014, with more than 1,000 boxes of flowers delivered every week. In July 2015 the company raised £2.5 million in Series A funding led by MMC Ventures, then in December it launched a two-hour on-demand delivery service in central London through a partnership with logistics company Shutl.
