London flowery delivery company Bloom & Wild secures £75 million in funding
London-based flower and gift delivery startup Bloom & Wild has announced £75 million in new funding after a year that saw 160 percent growth. Not solely focussed on growth, Bloom & Wild has some charity initiatives going on, as well. The UK company donated 15 percent of profits from the ‘Our Florist’s Pick’ bouquets to the National Emergencies Trust Coronavirus Appeal. A new annual partnership with Carers Trust aims to raise awareness of and support for the seven million unpaid carers in the country. General Catalyst led the investment, with participation from Index Ventures, Novator, Latitude Ventures, D4 Ventures and existing backers such as Burda Principal Investments.
