The behavioral shift to online purchases during the pandemic led to a meteoric rise in the use of Buy Now, Pay Later solutions ($97B in 2020), which has garnered significant attention. So much so that, just yesterday, the House Subcommittee of Financial Services held a hearing focused on the risks and benefits of BNPL. According to Credit Karma, 34% of those who have used BNPL have fallen behind on one or more payments. Accrue Savings is an innovative new offering launching today that’s pushing consumers towards more prudent spending through incentive-based savings tied to specific purchases rather than incurring point-of-sale debt as with BNPL. Consumers using Accrue are given FDIC-insured accounts and are rewarded for meeting savings milestones in the form of cash rewards from brands, building a pipeline of future purchases for participating brands while creating brand loyalty. Friends and family are also able to contribute towards the savings plan. AlleyWatch caught up with Accrue Savings CEO and Founder Michael Hershfield to learn more about the problem the historical disconnect between technology and savings that Accrue addresses, the company’s strategic plans, launch, and recent funding from investors that include Twelve Below, Box Group, Groundup, Good Friends, Red Sea Ventures, Center Street Partners, and many seed investors including Scott Belsky, Gokul Rajaram, and many other NYC angels and operators.

The pandemic has increased the adoption of telehealth services and this is no different for pets. According to the American Pets Product Association, Americans spent $99B on their pets in 2020. Yet 81% of pet owners would not be able to cover an unexpected $5,000 out-of-pocket expense for their furry loved one. Pawp is a digital health clinic and telehealth platform for pet owners and their pets that connects them with vetted veterinary professionals in minutes, without needing an appointment. The company also provides an annual $3,000 emergency safety benefit for emergency vet services that’s included within the $19/mo subscription fee. Pawp covers up to six pets in a single household and the subscription providers coverage regardless of a pet’s age, breed, and pre-existing conditions. AlleyWatch caught up with CEO and Cofounder Marc Atiyeh to learn more about how the pandemic not only drove the demand for telehealth vet service but also pet adoptions, the company’s future strategic plans, and latest round of funding led by Lux Capital.
As a patient in the healthcare system, you’re the customer but more often than not, it does not feel like. Tend is the modern dental studio that brings a customer-centric experience to dentistry, borrowing practices from the hospitality industry. Whether it’s in-person or through a virtual consultation, Tend places an emphasis on reducing the anxiety associated with a visit to the dentist. For example, patients can drift into their favorite Netflix show while undergoing treatments. In addition to routine cleanings, Tend offers teeth whitening, braces, root canals, veneers, and more. Next year, the company, still less than a year old, plans to expand into direct-to-consumer oral health products for its customers. CEO Doug Hudson shares more about the experience of building Tend 150-person team, the company’s geographic expansion plans, and most recent round of funding from investors that include GV, Juxtapose, Redpoint, Tiger Global, Zigg Capital and Good Friends, the fund formed by the founders of allbirds, Harry’s, and Warby Parker.
