We are all about supporting our local businesses and products. There are already some very well known Colorado businesses that have branched out nationally and even globally. Crocs, Chipotle, Frontier Airlines, Einsteins, Celestial Seasonings, too name a few. I have found a couple local companies to introduce to you and you may want to keep an eye on!
The first one is ibotta, this is a company whose headquarters is in Denver. This Denver-based company launched in 2012. They are transforming the connection of shopping and rebates. They created a mobile app that helps you to find out how your normal shopping (groceries, clothes, electronics, home supplies, etc.) will give you cash back for your purchases! I myself thought it was too good to be true, so I decided to download the free app and have been using it for the past few months and I’ve already earned over $10. I know it doesn’t sound like much but, when you have a family, any amount you can save and/or reinvest its a lot! The company offers to give it to transfer the funds you earn to be directly deposited in a PayPal or Venmo account or you can choose to have it converted into a gift card such as Amazon, Best Buy or even Starbucks. They have 224 stores that participate. Make sure to check it out! Again, it’s free to join, so you have nothing to lose. And one last thing, you get bonuses if you share with your friends!
The second company I want to spotlight is dripjoy coffee. This local startup company has created a new single serve coffee maker. They are taking the single cup coffee to the next level. They have taken the Keurig technology to the next level. They have created a coffee brewer that has commercial grade parts, made it compatible with any single-cup coffee product as well as developed a proprietary algorithm to figure out how much coffee a person drinks per month. You may have heard about them in the news recently regarding the Denver startup week that was just a couple weekes ago. Inside the basecamp they set up 12 machines and made 466 cups a day! With none of them breaking down or clogging up. They are guaranteeing their product. Such as with Harry’s or the Dollar Shaving Club where they determine the number of razors you would need and then ship them directly to you with a monthly subscription. That is what Dripjoy is offering. They figure out how much coffee you drink, you sign up for their service, they ship the coffee to you and the machine is free with most of their plans.
