VC-backed live-shopping start-up Supergreat will shut down on December 15, with Whatnot hiring most of the business's staff.

WHO: Co-founders Tyler Faux and Dan Blackman, experienced community builders, launched Supergreat in 2018 after working together on the mental health app Huddle, where they discovered a thriving group of highly engaged beauty fans sharing tips and product recommendations with each other. Supergreat is a community-based app where beauty enthusiasts can review, shop, and share tips on their favorite products. Through daily product drops with partners, beauty brands can more authentically interact with their audience by engaging with them directly on feedback and sharing new launches.

IN THEIR OWN WORDS: “Whatnot shares our belief in the future of video-first commerce and would love to welcome the Supergreat community to their platform,” the company said in the email to its community.
