About Cenk

I’m the founder of The Groom, Inc., a start-up at the vanguard of the male grooming market. We’re bringing the ‘man-cave’ into the 21st Century and onto the high street, in the form of our flagship ‘Vanity and Nobility’ stores.

The male grooming market was worth $21 billion in 2016 and is forecast to grow to $43 billion by 2020. We want to be first to market in this new frontier of opportunity and we are seeking both angel investors to fund the retail stores in exchange for exceptional ROI, and founders with expertise to offer in exchange for share ownership and the chance to be at the birth of a future Global brand.

How does that sound to you?
