Small Door raises $3.5 million in seed funding to rethink veterinary care
Millennials are opting out of marriage and kids and instead opting for pet ownership, opening the door for pet-centric businesses to grow.
Small Door Veterinary is one such company. Small Door was founded as a Public Benefit Corporation, which makes vets and pets key stakeholders in the business, and the company is looking to build a business that invests in the success and wellbeing of the vets as well as the shareholders. By generating revenue through a membership model, the company can ensure that vets have enough time with each patient and simultaneously minimize time in the waiting room.
The startup has raised $3.5 million in seed funding, led by Lerer Hippeau Ventures and Primary Venture Partners, with participation from Brand Foundry Ventures, Flatiron Health cofounders Nat Turner and Zach Weinberg, Warby Parker cofounders Dave Gilboa and Neil Blumenthal, among others.
