Floomx is a VC-backed start-up on a mission to build a connected global flower system. One that enables flowers to move around the planet transparently, sustainably and without waste. We believe flowers are the most universally accepted and loved gift, but as demand for them grows, their environmental impact has been too-long ignored.

Today we give florists the tools to create and deliver beautifully crafted bouquets on behalf of our customers. They’re hand-made and hand-delivered with the Floom seal of approval on behalf of the likes of the Kardashians, Kate Moss and more. But we aren’t stopping there, our vision is to give florists everything they need to not only compete, but to thrive whilst making a difference on our planet. Our future product looks towards the wholesale supply chain, building tech products that will become the future of how the industry buys and sells flowers at every level.
