2. Uprise Art
The founder Tze Chun saw a gap in the market for people who wanted to own beautiful art but found the process of buying it intimidating or confusing. It’s built around an “invest-to-own” model, in which young collectors can take artwork home and invest $50 a month toward owning the piece. Chun is trying to make living with beautiful art more accessible to everyone.
They founded this business so souvenir posters, antique maps, beach trip Instagrams, diplomas, baby announcements, flea market art, and anything that’s special to you could be easily custom framed, shipped, and enjoyed. They have a curated product selection and clear pricing with no surprise fees. They’ve included all of the typical frame shop quality upsell items—UV-protective glazing, acid-free materials and matting—in our base price. They provide the packaging for your art to be shipped to us and an easy way to upload digital files. And, of course, all shipping is free!
Tuft & Needle has disrupted a tired mattress marketplace. The founders wrote down all the things they hated about their mattress-buying experience. Then they tore apart actual mattresses and called suppliers to gather information about manufacturing costs and processes. What they learned was that Marino’s $3,000 mattress cost only about $300 to manufacture, including materials and labor. In general, they found, big-brand mattresses are marked up five to 10 times.They thought there were too many zeros in a mattress too. You should be able to get the best materials available. First class service shouldn’t be reserved for a private club. You should be able to try it out for a full month while wearing your pajamas. It should be made in America and shipped right to your door at no extra cost.
