Startup Monday is ABCey’s weekly post that showcases some of the best and most innovative startups based in the San Francisco Bay Area! These are often companies that we have our eye on or have worked with in the past. Today, we’d like to highlight Brandless!
Brandless is an e-commerce company founded in San Francisco in 2015 that recently launched in July 2017. This startup focuses on being completely transparent with customers and bringing high quality products and healthy ingredients. They sell a variety of things, ranging from household items to beauty products to food! The best part? Each product is just $3!
It’s simple. With the Brandless label, co-founders Tina Sharkey and Ido Leffler eliminated the “brand tax.” This is the hidden cost of buying from a brand that drives up the prices of products.
Moreover, the product packaging consists of the company logo and descriptors, like kosher, organic, or gluten free. This simplifies the shopping process and provides transparency for the consumer. You also have the option to “B.more” and sign up to be a member, which includes benefits, such as free shipping.
Brandless and Feeding America
Also, when you sign up to “B.more,” Brandless will donate the monetary equivalent of 10 meals to Feeding America. Brandless is partnered with Feeding America, the nation’s leading domestic hunger relief organization, and with every purchase, a meal will be donated on your behalf to those facing hunger.
Why we love it!
Brandless is very affordable and their products are health-conscious and environmentally friendly! Additionally, the company holds all their products to the highest standards. They also cater to what the community values most in their household items or in their foods. Furthermore, this startup dedicates itself leaving a positive impact on their community and the world.

We are really excited about this gem we found! Intercom is designed to increase sales and foster customer loyalty, by combining all aspects of helpdesk, email marketing and automated marketing! Its goal is to let companies start meaningful dialogue with customers depending on who they are, and how they’re using an online product. It’s a whole new dimension in customer service, and designed by former employees of Facebook, Apple, Google and Amazon, they must have something special!
Reviews say Intercom is easy to use and the pricing is refreshingly transparent! They are aiming to replace platforms such as Zendesk for customer support. We are really excited about it because as connoisseurs of digital marketing strategies, we love to see innovative new ideas that make it easier for companies and customers to interact and engage!

Let’s give a warm welcome to San Francisco to a long awaited startup idea, AirHelp. The best apps are the ones we didn’t think we needed, but after genius’ like AirHelp’s founders Henrik Zillmer, Nicolas Michaelsen, Greg Roodt and Morten Lund create it, we don’t know how we lived without it. That’s exactly what AirHelp did for the commercial airline industry!
We aren’t the only ones who think so. AirHelp opened it’s San Francisco office in March after helping tens of thousands of clients in Europe last year, and last weekend beat out more than thirty other tech-startups for a Cloud computing technology called Spark at the Collision Conference in Las Vegas (Congratulations)!
The aviation, law and technology experts at AirHelp are using their skills working for the wary traveler. AirHelp gets people the money they are owed by airlines from their cancelled, overbooked or delayed flights. Users fill out a quick form on the website, and the company does the heavy-lifting needed to make the claim go through. If successful, AirHelp and the user get paid. We think this will be very successful to help busy American’s get the most of their travel experience.
Hopefully you don’t have to this use regularly, but here at ABCey we can definitely appreciate how great it’s going to be to have an app on our side for our next travel nightmare. The skies the limit when traveling becomes one step easier! Check them out here.
