Having raised a round of $1.3 million this year led by First Round Capital, Collaborative Fund, Betaworks, David Tisch and more, Grand St. provides the first high-quality showcase for creative or small-batch technology, with a vision to change the way consumer electronics are discovered, bought and sold.
“Our relationship with our devices has evolved. More and more, our devices are becoming extensions of ourselves,” writes Amanda Peyton, co-founder and CEO of Grand St. on her blog. “Buying decisions are less influenced by specs and features and more driven by design and experience.”
