Memorial Day is one of the biggest weekends for mattress sales in the U.S. However, going through the experience of actually purchasing a mattress is usually a somewhat annoying hassle. This year, skip the mattress sales and go on a mattress sail down the Hudson! Casper, the fastest growing sleep startup, eighty-sixed the too-good-to-be-true deals, cheesy promotions and nagging sales people and instead created a sail experience for New Yorkers.
Casper launched last year offering consumers with the opportunity to easily purchase an outrageously comfortable mattress. Casper mattresses are sold online directly to consumers, eliminating commission driven, inflated prices. The critically acclaimed sleep surface was developed in-house by a team of product engineers with experience from IDEO, created with a sleek design, and is delivered right to your door in a small, “how did they do that?” sized box. The company was created by five young founders, including Neil Parikh who was named to INC and Forbes 30 Under 30 lists this year. (www.casper.com)

Consumers can spend the afternoon on a 105 foot sailboat with an open bar, passed hor d’oeuvres and of course, a Casper mattress to try out. Didn’t make it to the event? Make sure to check out the .
