【独家】获千万级Pre-A轮融资后,花+想继续深挖鲜花供应链

36氪独家获悉,订阅式鲜花供应商“花+”已于近日完成千万人民币级Pre-A轮融资。本轮由远镜中国领投、德同资本及光合创投跟投。去年9月我们对“花+”进行过报道。至今,这家公司在整体思路上没有出现较大的变化。简单来说,可以将“花+”的模式拆解成“按周预订+产地直达”。面对C端用户,“花+”与野兽派、Roseonly等高端品牌做出差异化,即:不打送礼牌,而是将鲜花视作快消品,专注在日常家庭自用这个使用场景,鲜花每周配送一次,价格定位在更亲民的每月98元/4束或168元/4束。同时,由于鲜花和生鲜类似,不易存储且耐受度非常低,因此后端供应链的处理和运作对品牌会有非常重要的影响。
