About BarkBox

[adinserter block="1"]
Bark & Co. (BarkBox) is a New York-based provider of pet-themed products and technology known for its monthly subscription service BarkBox, which has approximately 200,000 monthly subscribers. The company also operates the dog-themed content site BarkPost, the photo-sharing app BarkCam, and BarkBuddy, a "Tinder for Dogs." Matt Meeker, Henrik Werdelin, and Carly Strife are the founders. CEO Matt Meeker, Henrik Werdelin, and Carly Strife founded BarkBox in December 2011. The inspiration for BarkBox arose when co-founder Matt Meeker failed to find retailers in New York City who sold products tailored to dogs of all sizes, specifically his 150 lb. Great Dane Hugo. Prior to co-founding BarkBox, Matt Meeker co-founded the social networking site Meetup.com. The company rebranded to Bark & Co. in April 2013 after raising $6.7M in venture funding. The company used the funds to diversify its products, adding the dog-themed content sites BarkPost and PuppyFeed to their repertoire. The company surpassed the $25 million revenue run rate the same year. Bark & Co. received an additional $15 Million in Series B funding led by Resolute.vc, along with RRE, BoxGroup, Lerer Ventures, Bertelsmann Digital Media Investments, Slow Ventures, Daher Capital, CAA, Vast Ventures, and City National Bank in 2014.
