Just a little over six months after launching its second Seedrs campaign, Ireland-based tent brand Crua Outdoors has returned to the equity crowdfunding platform and has already surpassed its initial £125,000 funding target thanks to nearly 150 investors.
As previously reported, Crua Outdoors’ first equity round secured £85,371 in 2015, and last year, the company raised $300,003 through its reward-based Kickstarter campaign. The company stated at the time of its second Seedrs campaign, which raised £170,086, launch:
“Great ideas happen when you wake up shivering in the dead of night in the west of Ireland. We knew there had to be a better way of getting a good night’s sleep in the great outdoors. We needed a tent that is more than a tent; that is a comfortable refuge that would be warm in the winter and cool in the summer. In a moment of freezing clarity, we realized that we were going to have to build it ourselves. At Crua Outdoors (trading name of Thermo Tents Ltd) we have essentially begun a ‘Tent Revolution’ by designing and developing what we understand to be the world’s very first thermally and acoustically insulated tent or tenting system.”
The company’s patent-pending multi-layer design and brand new insulation technology have applications in:
- Recreational Tents
- Industrial Shelters
- Military Shelters
- Luxury tents or ‘Glamping’
- Disaster Relief Shelters
- Permanent Homes
All funds from the latest equity crowdfunding round will be used to continue Crua’s expansion. It is set to close later this winter.
