LUUV benefits from tripod sales record in Germany


Dear Companists,

Last week, the German Imaging Association (PIV) published its annual KPIs on the development of the German photo and video market. Conclusion: The LUUV target market is developing faster than expected!

The photo and video market is shaped by innovations in the B2C segment, sales of action cameras and smartphones are continuously increasing, and - most importantly for us - the market for stabilizers is characterized by a significant increase in revenues, resulting in an annual revenue of € 40.8 million, a new five-year high in Germany.*


The PIV has predicted further market growth for 2016. This development has led to increased media attention as well as numerous B2B inquiries and pre-orders (see also our last update: LUUV Sees 65-Percent Increase in Pre-orders since Campaign Launch). Thanks to our video stabilizers solidLUUV, autoLUUV and ultraLUUV, we are right on track and offer the perfect products for an increasingly professional amateur film market.

Our current focus remains on first batch production. At the same time, we are consistently gathering feedback and are providing customers and business partners with the opportunity to test our products. One of these testers is Kickstarter supporter Felix from Berlin:



In addition, Tim recently gave the Companisto blog a short interview in which he grants exclusive insights into the day-to-day work of a start-up:



If you are interested in personally trying out our products and meeting our team, please email and we will make an appointment with you in Berlin.


Best regards from teamLUUV!

*Note: The figures in this year's study were adjusted for revenue generated through the sales of selfie sticks.



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.
