Interesting article! Perhaps I’m just jaded, but I’m quite bearish on DNVBs for a few of the following reasons :).

  • Barriers to entry are too low, the proliferation of technology (i.e Shopify) has made it so anyone can start their own, driving up competition.

I still think the explosive growth of DNVBs has been great for consumers and produced a ton of stellar brands and products, but I wonder if we have reached peak DNVB?
