MyCouchbox Sees Successful Campaign Launch



Dear Companists, we have collected some material for this update.

Indeed, this first update of our campaign is meant to provide you with interesting news. First, we would like to thank all of you very much. After less than 72 hours, we reached the funding threshold of €100,000. Wow!

In addition, we have successfully participated in a start-up conference attended by famous people, whom we also convinced of MyCouchbox in front of a large audience. But read for yourself!


MyCouchbox Successfully Participates in IdeaLab!

IdeaLab! Stage with Clemens and Oliver Samwer


Clemens and André recently attended the IdeaLab! conference at WHU Otto Beisheim School of Management. During this conference, we both sponsored boxes and raised awareness of our equity crowdfunding campaign. Who would have thought that we would get a very large stage for that?

In fact, famous German digital entrepreneur and Rocket Internet founder Oliver Samwer himself asked Clemens to appear on stage and to introduce MyCouchbox to the audience within one minute. Samwer pays much attention to figures. Our pitch was successful, and the audience declared MyCouchbox the winner.

Afterward, Clemens asked Samwer how he could convince him of MyCouchbox among other things. Samwer replied, "you are very close to convincing me. And I will be glad to learn more about you. So let's stay in touch."

Thus, we are excited what the future will bring!


Y Combinator Meets MyCouchbox

Y Combinator, the legendary start-up program that has already helped companies such as AirBnB and Dropbox (so-called "unicorns" worth several billion dollars) grow rapidly, also attended the IdeaLab! conference. After applying successfully, we were allowed to convince one of the company's partners, Kevin Hale, of our idea, our business model, and our figures. Of course, we also mentioned our current equity crowdfunding campaign.

Kevin Hale replied, "you have convinced me! Great story, great team, and a great success. If you want my opinion, you should definitely expand your business into the U.S. In any case, we should keep in touch."


New Rewards

Many potential investors told us they would like to invest amounts of less than €500 in our equity crowdfunding campaign. Consequently, we have decided to add another reward. If you invest €100 or more, you will receive our Companisto MyCouchbox. We have created this box specifically for the funding campaign.

As you can see, many things can happen in less than a week. We are still grateful for any questions, ideas, and support we get from you. This campaign has already become a success by now!

Best regards,
The MyCouchbox team



Investments in startups and growth companies offer great opportunities, but they are risk investments. In the worst case, the entire investment amount may be lost. Consequently, investments in startups or growth companies are unsuitable for retirement plans. However, there is no obligation to make further contributions. Investors can minimize their risk by diversifying the amount they invest in startups and growth companies and not investing the entire amount in one startup or growth company. Professional investors often follow this strategy because it causes the risk to be distributed among several investments. In this way, successful investments can balance other less successful investments.

The shares of the investors on Companisto are subordinated profit-participating loans (partiarische Nachrangdarlehen). Such loans are shares in a business with similar characteristics as equity. If the company becomes insolvent or is liquidated, the claims of the investors (Companists) – just like those of all other shareholders of the company – will be satisfied from the assets in the insolvency or the assets in liquidation only after the claims of all other external creditors have been satisfied. Thus, Companists are treated like any other shareholder of the company during insolvency or liquidation proceedings.

The company information published on the Companisto website is provided solely by the companies. The projections made by the companies do not guarantee successful development of the company in the future. Consequently, investments in startups and growth companies are suitable only for those investors who can cope with the risk of a total loss of the capital invested. Investors make their own independent investment decisions and bear all risks themselves.

The investments are provided and issued by the individual companies. Companisto is neither the provider nor the issuer of the investments, but solely the internet service platform.
