The Prowl

Websitetheprowl.com
Launch DateJuly, 2013

At The Prowl, our focus is on shopping - the whole experience, not just the final transaction. We want you to discover things you’ll covet, get opinions before you buy, and enjoy the thrill of the hunt. You can ask the community for help accessorizing a dress or finding the perfect artwork to hang on your empty wall. Or, give your opinions and play the role of personal shopper for others. When you see something you like, “prowl it” to a board so you can look at it again later. When you find something you want to buy, we’ll link you to the site where it’s sold.Get inspired! Get shopping! Get prowling!

The Prowl was launched by the team from CafeMom in July 2013. CafeMom was founded in 2006 and welcomes over 10 million visitors a month. Lead investors are Highland Capital Partners and Draper Fisher Jurvetson.
