Decathlon testet den Buddy-Watcher


Dear Companists,

For some weeks now we’ve been engaging in cooperation talks with the French sporting goods retailer, Decathlon. With its 1,030 branches located throughout 29 different countries, the company, which generated €9 billion in total revenue last year, is one of Europe’s largest retailers. Decathlon has an especially large presence in France, where the company has over 300 locations. 

But there’s even more potential in this deal aside from improved access to the lucrative French market: Decathlon offers the Buddy-Watcher access to further attractive markets, like Spain, Turkey, India, and China.


Countries with Decathlon stores


Decathlon has displayed a fundamental interest in becoming a sales partner. At the moment, tests are being run on the Buddy-Watcher that will ultimately determine whether the product will be admitted to Decathlon’s stores.


Association of German Scuba Divers (VDST) adds the Buddy-Watcher to its product line

Buddy-Watcher has already been added to the Association of German Scuba Diver’s online shop. The VDST is one of the largest diving organizations in the world, with over 80,000 members. It was founded in 1954 has since become a part of the German Olympic Sports Confederation. Guaranteeing safety while diving and promoting good stewardship of the environment are among the organization’s most important principles. The Buddy-Watcher supports the VDST in these tasks, as our device connects divers with one another and can therefore be used to prevent accidents. Furthermore, the Buddy-Watcher is gentle on the underwater world, as it doesn’t emit any audible sounds, like those produced by Tank Banger or Tauchshaker.

With the addition of Buddy-Watcher to the shop, we’ve achieved a high level of market acceptance and increased our reach. We’re proud to have the VDST as one of our partners and look forward to cooperating with them.


Kind regards,

Your Buddy-Watcher Team



Investments in crowdfunding projects offer great opportunities, but they are risk investments. In the worst case, the entire investment amount may be lost. Consequently, these investments are unsuitable for retirement plans. However, there is no obligation to make further contributions. Investors can minimize their risk by splitting their investment amount between crowdfunding campaigns rather than investing all of it in one crowdfunding campaign. 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 Companists 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 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, crowdfunding investments 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.
