Conscious Box is following the popular____ in a box trend. If you subscribe to a monthly Conscious Box, you’ll get a box full of eco-friendly lifestyle goods, which you can then purchase full-sized versions of. According to[their AngelList referrer, they already have 1,500 paying monthly subscribers just a few month after launch and are growing quickly without any initial funding.

In case you missed all the hypethis week,Pair is a private social network for couples. One of the reasons for the hype is the fact that Pair is a Y-Combinator backed startup. Even without any description of the company[on AngelList, Pair was able to get 20 followers without much trying.
MySpareBrainis a London-based startup that lets you manage and track everything that doesn’t quiet fit in your current brain according to their AngelList profile. With all the information floating around online every day, there is definitely a need for such a product. I personally use[Workflowy, which is more of a traditional outline interface, while MySpareBrain seems to have a more graphical interface. While it doesn’t appear that MySpareBrain has raised any funding just yet, their advisors include Naval Ravikant, Jason Calacanis, Adeo Ressi and others.
Lookcraftis Pandora for men’s fashion according totheir AngelList profile. Upon registering, Lookcraft gives guys a brief style and fit quiz, then they make it easy for them to buy clothes in their size and style without the hassle of going shopping. This seems a lot like[Trunk Club, but a lot more scalable if the Lookcraft can pull this off.
Scoreoidis the ultimate game platform for developers. Developed by game developers for game developers, Scoreoid is a non-restrictive, reliable and easy to use gaming platform designed to handle scoring, leaderboard, game management and more.
