The Cadence Origin Story
Cadence is the brain child of Steph Hon, who wanted to build a product for the modern day mover. Steph bootstrapped and worked with factories to create prototypes of Cadence’s main product, the capsules, which help people on the go while positively impacting the environment. Hon raised an angel round of financing in 2019. With that money, she perfected the capsules to officially launch Cadence in February 2020. Consumers ate it up, selling out their assortment just 16 days after launch.
Cadence is on a mission to ban single-use plastic bottles in the portable personal care industry for good. While sustainability often focuses on full-sized single use plastic, Hon wants to lead the movement to replace tiny plastic bottles that have integrated themselves into our day to day routine but harm our environment. Hon settled on the name Cadence because she wanted to create products that fit into each individual lifestyle, routine, and rhythm. And so, Cadence is here to help customers keep up their daily cadence by creating sustainable products that fit seamlessly into routines.
