Let’s face it - when you’re embarking on something new, it’s always good to get some advice or guidance from someone who’s a little more experienced or who’s in the know.
That is something that is pretty much at the core of our latest Startup of the Week.
Boxagon is an innovative new platform which enables people to find and share collections of things which go together for all sorts of new situations and adventures.
Here’s how it works:
As a member of the Boxagon community you can create a box and fill it with all the items which you would personally recommend for a particular activity or situation - the must have essentials, if you like.
Other users can use the platform to search through your recommendations and if they would like to buy any of your suggested items, they can. Boxagon has linked up with a whole host of leading retailers and so in essence you can simply click on an item and be taken right to purchase point.
Boxagon is filled with boxes of curated items for all types of new adventure - from cross country running to learning acoustic guitar - it’s all here.
Boxagon is a pretty simple concept and a great one at that. After all, it’s taking the hassle out of researching what to buy and where to buy for any new hobby, task or situation - surely that’s something we’d all appreciate.
