Buddy-Watcher enters final stretch


Dear Companists,

We first started our campaign on 6 December, 2016, and after almost 8 weeks, the end is just a few days away. We want to use this occasion as a chance to once again review the successes of the past weeks and ring in the final leg of our campaign.


Buddy-Watcher and the press

Our equity-based crowdfunding campaign serves as a marquee for reports on the Buddy-Watcher.  Some highlights include an article on unterwasser.de as well as a report in the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ). On 3 January, the day on which the article appeared in the FAZ, we saw a 400% increase in the number of visitors to our site. 

We saw an increase to visitors to our website throughout all of January and December.  During this time period 45% more visitors logged on to www.buddy-watcher.de.


Record revenue in December

As we already informed in our last update, December was an extremely successful month for us.  We exceeded the projected revenue figures by 36%.  This fact simultaneously signaled the accomplishment of another feat for us: December 2016 was our most successful month since we founded the company. 

December was also the month in which the finalists of the Innovation World Cup were nominated.  The Buddy-Watcher is positioned well and has a chance to be named "the Wearable of the Year".


A good start to the New Year

The New Year began as successfully as the past year ended.  Our campaign hit the €100,000 threshold in January. At the same time, this news signaled that our financing round had officially been achieved. Since then, even more Companists have gotten on board, which brings our investment total to €120,000.

Our next highlight was trade fair, "Boot", in Düsseldorf.  With over 242,000 visitors, including many prospective Buddy-Watcher customers, the trade fair was a total success for us.  Although we were able to generate many great sales at prior trade fairs, the calculated amount of inventory for this event still wasn't enough - and this includes follow-up deliveries.  Some of the eager customers had to be turned away; however, they will have their Buddy-Watchers sent to them.

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.
