Linked directly to your credit/debit card, Thanx is the easiest way to automatically earn rewards at your favorite merchants – no plastic cards to carry and no check-ins required. Our mission is in our name: We want to say “Thanx” to our merchant customers and help them say “Thanx” to theirs. Retailers should be able to identify their best customers and those loyalists should be rewarded. With Thanx, it’s a truly frictionless experience on both sides.
Biggest Triumph & Lesson Learned Thus Far:
Thanx is now live after many months of development, and we are coming out of public beta this fall. We raised significant investment from elite Silicon Valley investors and are looking to more than double our team in the next 6-9 months. Key lesson learned: even very very small changes in consumer spending behavior can result in millions (and ultimately billions) of dollars in created value in the massive offline retail market.
Value That FounderSoup Added for Company:
While Thanx did not ultimately hire any of our founders or early employees via Founders Soup, we gained countless connections in the VC industry, great leads for future technical/engineering hiring and a network of supporters and early adopters who proved incredibly valuable during our beta period.
What’s Next for your startup?
Thanx is positioned for growth. At our core, Thanx is a data company focused on extracting insights from our valuable dataset: cross-merchant consumer spending history. We are an early stage, well-funded startup with significant equity for the right candidates and we are actively hiring for our engineering team. More importantly, being here now gives you a chance to shape our future and leave your mark early on. More at: www.thanx.com/jobs. The technology is rock solid and we are now gearing up for the next stage as we rapidly expand our merchant footprint and continue to streamline the consumer experience.
