NY STARTUPS TO WATCH
Boxmonthly.com, Quirky.com and Bauble.com
I had attended an event at Art Space that was for four NY startups.
Since the rise and fall of Silicon Valley, NYC has become a popular place for startups. Boxmonthly.com is a new kid on the block with a rapidly growing subscriber rate. Boxmonthly is a beauty box, health and self esteem combo. Look like a million and feel richer. Quirky.com is a website for inventors. They create innovative new products from community submissions and votes. Members get influence for contributing to a Quirky project in development. They have a Cable space saver for Macs, a dust pan that cleans your broom and mugs with a spoon clipped on the side.
Birchbox.com a popular small size sample box had many of their boxes and products at this event as well. At this time their boxes were pink. Now they have kind of sold out to tv shows and magazines with special edition boxes.
