Dale's Opinion On Huckberry
What makes Huckberry so incredible is their attention to detail. Their design, product curation, marketing, and content strategy places them on the top shelf in my opinion. But what makes them even stronger is their ability to bootstrap their company without any debt or investors.
These two young men (in their early 30's) have a rare discipline to run green (profitable) in a time where most startups are taking on investment and running red (not profitable). If you're aspiring to build a strong, relevant brand... then keep your eyes on Huckberry.
