🏘 Get it Together
Our mission is to sustainably provide the most convenient and affordable way for local communities to get what they need together from the stores they love.
✨ Who We Are
Buncha is bringing back the milkman, with your favorite stores.
Our social commerce platform connects neighborhoods directly with their favorite local merchants for weekly neighborhood deliveries. Neighbors on Buncha save together on the essentials they need from the stores they love by ordering together every week. Meanwhile, our merchants use Buncha to efficiently find new customers, turn existing ones into brand evangelists and make more money using resources they already have.
We are building a better way for neighborhoods across the country to get what they need, directly from the merchants they love, every week.
Buncha is one of the first and fastest-growing social commerce platforms in the United States. We’ve raised 3.7M from Techstars, Target, Starting Line, Unusual Ventures, Matchstick Ventures, and early employees, founders and executives from Nextdoor, Instacart, GoPuff and more. We are growing 10X YoY with plans to expand to a dozen + markets within the next 12 months. Our team of 24 is spread across offices in Minneapolis, MN, and New Delhi, India.
