Après Raises $1.1M in Seed Funding

Après, a San Francisco-based provider of a plant-based protein beverage developed for whole-body replenishment, raised $1.1M in seed funding.

The round was led by Rocana Venture Partners, with participation from Kyle Vogt (CEO of Cruise Automation), Joey Cannata (former EVP of Sales & Distribution at Rockstar Energy), Kevin Lin (co-founder of Twitch), and Filipp & Polina Chebotarev (Managing Partners of Cambridge Companies).

The company will use the funds to restock, and develop a range of new product options.

Founded in 2016 by Darby Jackson and Sonny McCracken, Après is a digital-first company offering a plant-based protein beverage developed specifically for premium whole-body replenishment. Après launched its Direct-to-Consumer sales nationally in Nov. 2017 and is now back in stock with Sea Salt Chocolate and Mint Cacao with new flavors debuting in 2018.
