Austin-based Beardbrand was founded in 2012, when relatively few men considered purchasing products specifically for their facial hair.
Eight years later, the global market for male grooming products is more than $60 billion, according to some reports. Beardbrand, meanwhile, appeared on ABC’s Shark Tank in 2014, and has grown to become a premium lifestyle brand with a community of millions of fans.
In this ORIGINALS episode, we speak to Beardbrand founders Eric Bandholz and Lindsey Reinders about the trajectory of the company, how they overcame early struggles, and where they envision the company 10 years from now.
