CustomMade, a Google Ventures company, is changing the way people shop by making buying custom easier. We want to be an alternative to big box retailers by providing an online marketplace that connects consumers with artisans across the country. Take a look at our vision for this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t5ZixpZ0ZYs.
We are creating an experience where consumers can connect with an artisan maker to co-create something unique. Customers won’t see a shopping cart or checkout tag on our site. Instead they will meet thousands of makers who are thrilled about the prospect of creating something with them.
What you’ll get from us
We love our product. We love working together and going home with feeling that we accomplished something every day. Here is a look at how fast we have grown in 2012 (and how we like to have fun): http://blog.custommade.com/portfolio/year-in-review-2012/.
