Bulletin, a retail startup with three shops in New York, has raised a $7 million Series A from Foundation Capital, with additional support from Kleiner Perkins, Trail Mix Ventures and Afore Capital.

It’s the company’s second round of funding, having raised a seed round of $2.2 million in 2017.

The company plans on expanding its reach by building out a platform connecting brands with retailers, and giving direct-to-consumer brands a fighting chance to grow by making it easier to bring them to brick-and-mortar shops.

In theory, this can remove the hassle of attending trade shows to find buyers.

“We’ve always wanted to build a solution that’s as salable and affordable,” said Alana Branston, CEO and co-founder.

“There’s limitations to the store model and some of the other store models that are out there today.”
