Who needs care packages from mom when you’ve got a startup to send you everything you need?

Cofounded by Wharton MBA student Marissa Hu, Co-Ed Supply is a monthly survival kit for college kids. The packages are always filled with snacks, toiletries and “fun and games.”

Sign up here for $20/month.

Hu, 26, is blunt about what’s driving her business: “College kids are too broke/busy/lazy” to get everything they need, she said in an email to Technically Philly.

She says Co-Ed Supply has gotten signups from as far as Wyoming and California, though the team of three is focusing on Philly right now.

A Los Angeles native, Hu now lives in Center City West.
