I wanted to let you in on a crowdfunding campaign that JD and I have launched on Wefunder. In other words, we want you to make money WITH us.
What an amazing journey we have had in the last three years at Bolder Band. If someone would have told me when we started that we would have had the opportunity to sell hundreds of thousands of headbands all over the US (and beyond!) I would have never believed it.
JD and I have learned so much about growing a brand through e-commerce and wholesale that we could never put a price on the education we have received. The opportunity to take something from concept to product to market has been incredibly humbling and rewarding.
We are so grateful for every single person that has believed in our mission to empower others.
We have concluded after three years on this ride that we want to invite you, our friends, to be a part of the next chapter of our story. We don’t want to stop at headbands. We want to continue to grow our brand and to touch more lives and partner with more people, encouraging them to become more active and be the most bold, beautiful version of themselves.
It would be our honor to have you invest in bringing “Made in the USA” products to the marketplace that make the active person’s life just a little easier. Thank you for taking the time to look at this opportunity and for partnering with us. We are excited about the future and are committed to giving our all to making it the best it can be.
Here’s more details if you want to know more :):
Since September 2013, when we launched BBolder.com, we’ve sold $6,500,000 worth of Bolder Bands, Colder Bands, T-shirts, Bolder Wristlets and other apparel.
We’ve grown primarily on-line, but we do have great relationships with wholesale accounts in nearly every state in the US, a few in Canada, Australia and the UK.
We’ve learned a LOT. We’ve made some mistakes and we’re ready for the next chapter of our business.
This is where you come in. We need capital to grow.
JD and I have bootstrapped Bolder Band for 3 years with the help of you and 150,000 Bold and Beautiful customers. But in order to invest in new lines of products, we need your help. Here’s a small list of what’s on the horizon:
- We have been developing and testing a line of lip gloss for over 8 months and we are ready to place the order. It will take approximately $150,000 - $200,000 to get it to market.
- We have our targets set on private labeling products we know we can sell.
- We would like to acquire 1 or 2 companies that would be a great fit to our current business and customer base.
- We have relationships with US based manufacturers that have 1st in class consumable products and we’d like to pursue that.
But it all takes capital. That’s why I’m sharing this with you.
We’ve set up a Crowdfunding campaign on Wefunder
which is the best platform in the US for the investor as well as the company raising money.
It’s different than Kickstarter®, IndeGoGo®, or GoFundMe® in that you invest your money (as little as $100) and you get an actual ROI* (Return On Investment) of 1.5x to 1.75x depending on how early you get in. In addition to a really nice ROI*, that’s potentially way better than a CD or savings account, you’ll get access to these amazing PERKS:
|$100+ ||Free Bolder Band of your choice|
|$500+ ||Early access to new products. First look at new colors, designs and products we create. Plus 2 - $50 gift cards!|
|$1,000+ ||Exclusive $1K Bolder Band Backer custom T-shirt and custom Backer Bolder Band headband. Plus 3 - $50 Gift Cards|
|$2,500+ ||Boxed set of 25 Top Selling Bolder Bands of all time and collaborate with Amy on a new fabric design and choose the name of the Bolder Band that you co-create!|
|$5,000+ ||Collaborate with Amy on a custom Bolder Band design for your favorite charity and Bolder Band will donate 100% of the profits from the sale of that Bolder Band to that charity. (up to $5000)|
|$10,000+ ||2 - 30 minute phone calls with Amy and JD where you can ask any question about how to grow your own brand and eCommerce business or pretty much anything else!|
|$25,000+ ||All inclusive Spa Day with Amy (for females only) at The Broadmoor. You just pay for travel to Colorado Springs, CO. Plus a tour of our offices. Plus dinner at The Broadmoor.|

Here’s a couple questions we’ve been asked that I thought I’d answer for you here: Q: What happens if you don’t reach your goal of $200,000?
A: Wefunder returns everyone’s money. Q: When will I get my initial investment + .5x or .75x back?
A: It depends, you could get it back in 4 years or 25 years or never. The payback is a function of our Net Revenues (Gross Revenue - returns and shipping) x 5% paid out until you an all the other investors are paid off*. Q: What is crowdfunding?
A: Crowdfunding is a method of raising capital through the collective effort of friends, family, customers, and individual investors. Q: What are the Risks?
