Northern Star Investment Corp. II
This is the second blank-check company or SPAC led by Joanna Coles, the former chief content officer for Hearst and the former editor-in-chief of Cosmopolitan magazine, and Jonathan Ledecky, a co-owner of the National Hockey League’s New York Islanders.
In December 2020, Northern Star I entered into a definitive agreement for a business combination with BarkBox, Inc., a company that serves over 1 million dogs per month through its BarkBox and Super Chewer subscriptions and broad retail distribution of proprietary products.
