Green Blender Raises $900k in Seed Funding to Expand Smoothie Delivery Service

New York Startup Makes It Easy to Eat Healthier With Superfood Smoothies at Home

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - August 06, 2015) - Today, Green Blender, the New York City-based startup that delivers pre-portioned ingredients and superfoods to make organic smoothies at home, has raised nearly $1 million in seed funding from well-known startup investors Point Nine Capital, Lukasz Gadowski, and SOSventures for the company's expansion.

Green Blender will apply the financing to support its high growth, including hiring, geographic expansion, partnerships, and marketing initiatives, on the company's quest to promote healthier lifestyles through smoothies.

"These new funds will provide critical resources for us to ramp up our operation and help further share our company's mission with others," said Amir Cohen, founder and CEO of Green Blender. "We have a great product and membership base and we'll work to continue to provide the freshest local smoothie ingredients and recipes to an even wider market."

The company launched last year, delivering to Manhattan only. Now, the company ships to most parts of New York, Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Maine, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, West Virginia, and Washington DC.

"We are extremely impressed by what Amir and the Green Blender team have achieved with very few resources and are very excited to see where they can take the company next," said Nicolas Wittenborn from Point Nine Capital. "Healthy nutrition is gaining more and more importance and we believe that Green Blender's Smoothie-as-a-Service subscription is a perfect starting point to conquer this market."
