The Moonshot Speaker Series: Matt Arevalo


          By Caitie deLaroche on November 3, 2017

          What can you accomplish in 48 hours? Apparently, a lot. Matt Arevalo both co-founded his company, Loot Crate, and made a profit all within 48 hours. Team One was of course intrigued by this outcome and invited Matt Arevalo, co-founder and CXO of Loot Crate, to share his story at our Moonshot Speaker Series powered by Inc.

          Loot Crate is a monthly subscription service that sends well-known pop culture franchise merchandise right to your door. Loot Crate creates exclusive collectibles, apparel and gear from Marvel, Harry Potter, Sanrio, and Halo, just to name a few.

          The creation of Loot Crate sparked from the idea of “Comic Con in a box”. Now, they have grown into a multi-million-dollar business platform and pride themselves on being a company by fans, for fans. All fandoms have their own culture, tone and personality and Arevalo believes that listening to them is a key aspect to their company.

          Getting in the spirit of fandom, Team One got creative and built their own life-size Loot Crate box. At the event, attendees could step into a Loot Crate box and take pictures with the props inside. From a Captain America shield to the Hogwarts sorting hat to real life Storm Troopers, people were able to experience the fandoms that are so critical to Loot Crate’s success.

          The Moonshot Speaker Series powered by Inc. is a bimonthly intimate discussion hosted by Team One. Team One is committed to launching the remarkable, so in 2011, we created The Moonshot Speaker Series, a program that features influential business and thought leaders and examines the very ingredients that it takes to launch and land a remarkable idea.
