Overview

We are the place for the not-so-commonplace. The place where you get more out of shopping small—from finding ingenious products you never knew about to supporting small businesses that might be right in your neighborhood. These businesses aren’t very big (yet), but their ideas are. We seek out and curate these unique, useful products, giving every underdog their day. 

Since 2008, we’ve seen first-hand how voting with your dollars to choose small means more. It’s one action that connects customers to small businesses, enriching communities. Many of the products we’ve helped launch have gone on to become household names like Bananagrams, FitBit, GoldieBlox, IdeaPaint, Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day, OtterBox, Swell, among many others.

At Grommet, you’ll find wonderful gadgets that make you wonder how you ever got by without them. You’ll hear stories behind products that push them to the front of your wish list. And you’ll uncover those special goods that also do good when you buy them. We call it, “buying what you believe in”, so you know where your shopping dollars go. We’re for all of this so we made a place where it’s all here for everyone else.

Grommet. For everything, that’s unlike anything.

 

Culture

Our Mission

Our mission has always been to elevate the big thinking of small businesses. We’ve seen that when you shop small, you get fantastical products and empower people within their communities, enriching livelihoods. 

Our Values

Make a Difference
We’re pioneers, so we welcome the risk and ambiguity that comes with discovering new territory. Our sense of ownership translates into earnestness both internally and externally. Sure, we value wins, but we also value valiant recoveries.

Make It Excellent
We expect excellence from others and one-up ourselves constantly, leaving spaces, conversations, and roles better than when we entered them. We strive for quality because people trust us, our vetting process, and our storytelling.

Make Room
We foster a creativity-breeding environment where everyone has a comfy seat at the table. We look for people who can add to our culture rather than simply “fit in.” Having a variety of experiences and perspectives helps us arrive at unexpected and effective solutions.

Make for Others
We’re idealists (but we’re not naive). We tackle challenges with a positive outlook. Our mission of helping the little guy fuels and colors interactions with teammates, Makers, and customers every single day. We remember the small when we do the big.

Culture & Workspace

With a dynamic, creative, and high-energy work environment, Grommet offers a culture of collaboration, mentorship, and learning along with transparency from leadership.

Because of our mission, you’ll work side by side with people passionate about helping small businesses and entrepreneurs succeed in bringing their consumer products to market.

Our office is a quick walk to the Davis Square MBTA station as well as a variety of eateries in Davis Square, Teele Square, and along Massachusetts Avenue.
