Just a few days ago, tent innovator serial Seedrs alumni Crua Outdoors closed its latest crowdfunding round, raising just over £800k.
Known for its patented, sound, light and even-blast resistant tent technology, Crua Outdoors has its sights on growth, with an all-new 7,500 square foot premises in Ireland. In 2020, leading up to its latest funding round, the startup boasted 2.5x revenue growth to over $2.5M*, powered by over 20,000 customers in more than 100 countries worldwide. Crua’s website revenues nearly tripled in January of this year, compared to the same period in 2020*.
Crua has created what it believes to be the world’s very first insulated and blast-resistant fabric structure for the exploration and production industry. Its blast-resistant shelters are currently sold and delivered to a key Blue Chip customer in Oil and Gas, with the US being its primary market. The startup is constantly undergoing R&D and product development allowing it to capture new markets, including most recently the ‘glamping’ and rooftop tent segments. With 3 product launches completed in 2020, and 3 more scheduled for this year, 2021 will be a big year for the camping market.
Crua Outdoors is live on the Secondary Market now, at an indicative valuation of £8M. There are limited sharelots available for purchase, starting at £12.74. View shares and updates here.
