You Can Now Buy Startup Products On Amazon

Many of us want to grab the new products from startups as soon as they launch but this will be a nightmare only to say, last month, this startup launched this innovative product and it’ll be delivered to me tomorrow. The e-commerce major Amazon always comes up with something great and unique every time and this time they launched ‘Launchpad‘ – a new program that makes it easy for startups & crowdfunded projects to launch, market, and distribute their products to hundreds of millions of Amazon customers across the globe.

Start-up products featured in the Launchpad store include the Soma Sustainable Pitcher and Plant-Based Water Filter, Rumpl High-Performance Indoor/Outdoor Blanket, Casper Mattress, and eero Home Wifi System, among others. So far, the store boasts more than 200 products from more than 25 accelerators, crowd-funding platforms, and venture capital firms.

“We…know from talking to startups that bringing a new product to market successfully can be just as challenging as building it,” Amazon Vice President Jim Adkins said in a press release. The Launchpad aims to smooth over that process by taking care of order fulfillment and customer service for start-ups. As a part of the launchpad, start-ups can offer their Amazon Prime customers free shipping.

“Amazon Launchpad gives customers access to a dedicated storefront featuring a variety of innovative new products from emerging brands. For startups, we handle inventory management, order fulfillment, customer service, and more, allowing them to focus their efforts on the innovation that results in more cool products” – Adkins said.

For global shoppers, it’s a hub for the newest and most promising products on the market, divided into categories like ‘Funded on Indiegogo‘ or ‘Connected Products’.
