Kickstarter success now overfunding on FundedByMe.
IAMRUNBOX is the new global active lifestyle brand that combines Scandinavian design and Swedish innovation to provide a light backpack and carriers for active commuters. It has already sold more than a thousand units and after a successful campaign on Kickstarter, where the company raised €25,000 from backers, IAMRUNBOX is currently engaged in an equity crowdfunding campaign on FundedByMe. More than 70 investors have already jumped onboard to raise more than 137% of this campaign’s €100,000 goal and the campaign is currently overfunding until it closes for investments on 10 March 2017.
Following it’s European success, IAMRUNBOX now has its sights set on growth in Asia where the sustainability and health focus is growing. IAMRUNBOX will start Asian operations in Singapore in March 2017 and aims to be revenue neutral within the next year as the number of people running or cycling to work, globally, continue to show dramatic growth. “FundedByMe’s network of Asian investors has already proven to be very helpful in the growth of the IAMRUNBOX brand.” says FundedByMe CEO and co-founder, Daniel Daboczy. “Choon Seng Tan, one of the Singaporean investors into FundedByMe, has opted to join the IAMRUNBOX advisory board and guide the brand into their Asian expansion,” Daboczy continues.
IAMRUNBOX is the brainchild of Latvian-born Kirill Noskov. With degrees in economics and management Noskov started his career in a multi-national corporation, where he worked in 4 countries on various leadership positions for 15 years before diving into IAMRUNBOX fulltime in September 2016. Noskov believes in simplicity, social innovation and creating a sustainable future as he is a run-commuter, triathlete and active lifestyle ambassador himself. “The concept of a light, completely user-friendly – and beautiful – backpack for others like me who opt to get to work the healthy way, was a no-brainer and, based on increasing orders and high customer demand we believe the market potential is great.” says Noskov. “With the help of our more-than 10,000 online fans, the growth of IAMRUNBOX has been a joy to watch,” Noskov continues.
The IAMRUNBOX campaign is set to close on 10 March 2017.
