Amrit is the passionate entrepreneur behind Fikabox, which is a subscription service delivering snacks to customers in the comfort of their home or workplace. With over 100 different snacks, carefully mixed with some unique ingredients, the fun never ends. The mixes containing chocolate, nuts, dried fruit and seeds comes with creative names such as “Bollywood Masala”, “Lime cuddle” or one of the favourites “Strawberry milkshake”.
As consumers across the country moves towards the Internet from the traditional means of consuming, comfort and ease of use becomes increasingly important. Consumers are increasingly health aware and want to eat healthier-food but with outstanding taste, so the idea of Fikabox was to put that healthier and outstanding-tasting food in a box, and deliver it across the country to our subscribers.
We love surprises: And to preserve the love for surprise Fikabox created an interactive rating-system where customers can choose to rate the products through “Try me”, “Like me”, “Love me” and “Dump me”. –The more you love a product, the more often we will send it to you. Depending on customers’ ratings, Fikabox predicts what customers’ likes/dislike and chooses a selection of snacks based on their preferences. With over 100 different snacks, Fikabox promises to exceed customer expectations every time by only delivering what our customers want.
The company is only a year old, but the idea began when Amrit was living in the UK where he discovered a similar concept. He decided to challenge the traditional Swedish “fika”, which we all know is an essential part of the Swedish culture.
Together with Fundedbyme, Fikabox started a campaign to find ambassadors and investors who would like to become a part of our journey and help us grow. Within the first four days Fikabox had raised over 1,2 million SEK and with only 9 days left to go Fikabox has now raised over 1.7 million SEK and reached 91% of the required amount.
Since the launch of Fikabox, the company has established positive response from media and been awarded the “Best start-up entrepreneur 2015” and is also nominated for “Young start-up entrepreneur 2015”!
