UBC-MBA alumnus Neil Thomson is the co-founder of Vancouver’s Naked Snacks, a healthy snack delivery startup that has been delivering snacks to Vancouver homes and businesses since 2013. Neil and his team recently raised over $12,000 in 14 days on Kickstarter, surpassing their $10,000 goal. The team will use the funds to expand their storage and packaging facility and meet growing demand for their healthy snacks.
“We’ve put a lot of hard work into this business and this Kickstarter campaign, and we’re really excited to be able to share this with our customers,” said Thomson. “If there’s one thing we’ve learned on our journey so far, it’s that nothing is achieved without the support of the community we serve.”
The oversubscribed campaign has put the team in high spirits and spurs their passion to provide healthy snacks to office workers and families in Vancouver, with plans to expand their services abroad. Nick and his team was also recently featured in a Globe and Mail case study, detailing the challenge of starting an online health-driven company.
