CHICAGO, IL, Kidsy, a disruptor in online retail, has raised over $1 million to provide consumers greater access to discounted baby and kids products.
The pre-seed round, which was oversubscribed, is the company's first round of funding after launching from its beta phase in September 2023. Impellent Ventures and its partners David Brown, Phil Beauregard and Tariq Trotter (aka Black Thought) led the round. Other notable investors include Hustle Fund, Everywhere Ventures, Responsibly VC and The Fund Midwest.

A strong cohort of angel investors also joined including DraftKings co-founder and CEO Jason Robins, Initialized Partner and Rent the Runway co-founder Jenny Fleiss, Butcherbox founder Mike Salguero, Trucks VC founding partner Reilly Brennan and Kalibrr (YC W13) co-founder Sanuk Tandon.

Kidsy is headquartered in Chicago with warehousing operations in Sioux City, Nebraska. Kidsy says being strategically located in the midwest allows the company to keep costs low and also positions them to be equi-distance from key shipping zones, retail partners and infrastructure systems.
