We’re thrilled to partner with Sequoia Capital to grow & sustain local food systems worldwide
Today marks an exciting milestone for Good Eggs! Our mission to grow and sustain local food systems is at the heart of everything we do, and we’re thrilled to now have the support of our newest partner, Sequoia Capital.
We’ve partnered with Sequoia on our Series A funding with participation from Harrison Metal and other investors. As part of our partnership, Bryan Schreier, partner at Sequoia, will join the Good Eggs Board of Directors (that’s him packing a Good Eggs order).
In partnering with Good Eggs, a mission-driven organization, Sequoia is investing its resources in building a better food system. In the words of Bryan Schreier: “It’s time to make eating local a viable, convenient alternative for all of us. We believe in the mission that’s driving Good Eggs, the team that’s fulfilling it, and the local farmers and foodmakers who are growing and making food with integrity around the world.”
So what does this mean for you? If you’re in our current community of eaters or producers, you’ll see growing local marketplaces with more great food. From our full Bay Area marketplace to our pilots in Brooklyn, Los Angeles and New Orleans, we’ll be connecting more people with their local farmers and foodmakers. And we’ll be coming to dozens more cities in the near future! As always, we remain driven by the social and environmental good we can do with an innovative, high integrity, local alternative for feeding our families.
We’re looking forward to working with the team at Sequoia and building a bright future for local food and the producers who make it possible.
