Our Journey

Boxed Basics was founded in September 2019 when two entrepreneurial minds and frequent flyers, Venky Krishnan Ganesan and Nicole Benoist met at an MIT Bootcamp in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Joined by Christian Laliberte, a New York-based digital marketing guru, the team set out to develop a collection of products designed for the modern globe-trotter. A travel kit of essentials tailored to the needs of the future traveler — TSA-compliant and shipped directly to the destination of the user’s choice.
 

A travel brand that values efficiency, sustainability and convenience at every step of the way.  


On target to launch Boxed Basics in March 2020, the emergence of the Covid-19 pandemic brought the travel industry to a juddering halt. The global disruption is changing the world rapidly in unforeseen ways. Boxed Basics is agile to the evolving needs of the future traveler — we are here to make those future journeys smooth, safe and hassle-free.

What's the future of travel look like for us?

We pack the essentials so you don’t have to — our goal is to ease the stress of travel so you can focus on what really matters. Just throw in your bag & go.

Our world is changing rapidly in unforeseen ways and staying connected has never been more important. The modern traveler deserves ease, comfort and safety at every step of the way. Boxed Basics has you covered.
