Michael Dubin Speaker Profile:

Michael Dubin is chief executive and co-founder of Dollar Shave Club, a subscription service that delivers razors and laughs.  When Dubin released a YouTube video in March 2012 introducing his company,  he had no idea the replenishable razor blades were going to be such a big hit. The goofy video went viral, orders poured in (12,000 in the first two days) and the company’s website, DollarShaveClub, crashed in the first hour. The subscription-based business model is nothing new, but it’s the convenience, price and cheeky slogan — just profane enough that it can’t be printed in the Los Angeles Times — that make the company stand out from big razor brands such as Gillette or Schick.

Dollar Shave Club was backed by a variety of venture capitalists. In March 2012, seed investors provided $1 million in funding from groups that included Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, Andreessen Horowitz, Shasta Ventures, and others. The same group, joined by Venrock, provided $9.8 million in series A funding in October 2012. A year later, a $12 million series B round was raised led by Venrock, Comcast Ventures, New World Investors and Battery Ventures. Amidst the fundraising announcement, Dollar Shave Club announced it would be expanding its product line to include a dozen other men’s products in 2014.In June 2015, the company secured $75 million in series D funding.  On July 19, 2016, Dollar Shave Club was acquired by Unilever for a reported $1 billion in cash.
