Harry’s launched in 2013 with the aspiration to disrupt the men’s grooming market. We built a brand and products out of respect for quality craftsmanship, simple design, modern convenience and for guys who know they shouldn’t have to overpay for a great shave. We are able to deliver exceptional value and experiences to our customers because we are vertically integrated. From grinding steel into fine razors blades at our factory in Germany to selling our products directly to customers on our website and select retailers, we own the entire process.
We have been blown away by the customer response to our brand and today have over 3 million online customers across the US and UK and significant retail presence at Target and Walmart. We are expanding our product offering beyond shaving, most recently launching a body wash and bar soap line. Additionally, we recently launched Flamingo, which is a new brand specifically for women’s hair care and grooming.
But our ambition doesn’t stop there. Our vision is to build the next generation CPG company, investing in, building, and owning a portfolio of omnichannel modern brands across multiple categories, similar to how we’ve done it with the Harry’s brand. After raising $112M in our most recent round of funding, we plan to leverage our platform and capabilities, and partner with exceptional entrepreneurs to launch a number of new disruptive brands in new categories in the coming years. This is where you come in.
Harry’s is committed to bringing together individuals from different backgrounds and perspectives.
