Frequently Asked Questions
Why Golden Hippo?
Golden represents the “golden ratio” - symbolizing nature’s perfect balance in all things. For us, it also symbolizes our belief in the Golden Rule - do unto others as you would have them do unto you. The Hippopotamus is sacred in many ancient cultures, with the name meaning, ‘Water Horse’. The Hippo’s wisdom is said to include imagination, emotional depth, creation, healing, protection of family, the birth of new ideas, and the ability to move gracefully and powerfully. These are the things we strive for, for both our customers and our team.
What do you do, exactly?
We partner with doctors and other experts to build category-leading brands, most of which fall within the categories of health, beauty, and pet care.
To do this, we develop unique, best-in-class products and use sophisticated direct-to-consumer marketing techniques to make those products profitable.
What are your company goals?
While many say we are building the next generation of direct-to-consumer brands, the reality is that in a few short years from now, nearly all brands will be direct-to-consumer. However, not all of the brands we know and love will survive. With a proven history of creating category-leading brands that customers keep coming back to, using our unique style of marketing that leads with value, we are not only building the next generation of brands, but redefining the relationship people have with the brands they love, for the better.
