Episode 99:

Interview with Mike Levkovsky, founder of Spoil

We all love surprises. We all love to feel loved and cared about. We also have those hard days when a little gift means so much because it shows that someone is thinking of us. But let's be honest, sending spontaneous gifts can be a total headache which is why most of us don't do it as often as we'd like or should. Well, worry no more because Spoil is here to help you. 

Spoil has built a service that allows you to send a spontaneous gift to anyone, anywhere, anytime. They have a variety of items to choose from including flowers, balloons, food items, stuffed animals, champagne, and several other gift ideas. After you place your order the Spoil team actually does manual work of contacting local companies to fulfill your order. They're able to ship most orders same day unless you live in a very rural area with minimal delivery services.

So the next time you want to send a gift to a friend, loved one, acquaintance, co-worker, neighbor, or anyone else you should check out Spoil.

In this interview I spoke with Mike, co-founder of Spoil about the origin of Spoil, how they pivoted from their prior business concept, how the 4 founders came together, their experience going through the y-combinator accelerator, how much money they've raised since, how they are using that capital to grow, what the team looks like now, how they are acquiring users and playing around with different marketing strategies including referral programs and much more.
