Pablo & Paul Is Developing Very Positively




Dear Companists of Pablo & Paul,

Since our campaign launch on 15 January, 365 Companists have invested roughly 143,000 euros in Pablo & Paul. We really appreciate your confidence in our company – thank you very much! The first quarter of 2015 was full of events for us; here are some highlights.


Business Development and Partnerships

Our business is developing positively: 

  • Visits to our online shop more than doubled compared to Q4/2014.
  • Orders in our online store/store-within-a-store increased by roughly 25 % compared to Q4/2014.
  • The average order value slightly increased compared to Q4/2014.


Important New Partnerships:


  • We are present with our own profile on the leading design platforms homify and houzz, where the community of house and apartment owners may find inspiration concerning construction, furniture, and design and discover artworks by Pablo & Paul. Pablo & Paul presents exciting art projects on these platforms on a regular basis. Thus, Pablo & Paul increasingly positions itself in the area of design and follows the trend of individual interior design.
  • We will start a partnership with one of the most popular furniture and interior design platforms in Germany in late April. We will provide you with details on this partnership soon.



Rapid Growth of Our Art Portfolio

In the first quarter, we added more than 100 new artworks to our portfolio. These artworks are from all categories that exist on Pablo & Paul: paintings, mixed-media art, drawings, print, and photography.


Our Artists Are Successful

Our artists' works (for instance those by Alina Vergnano on the left; click the picture to enlarge) have been shown in several solo exhibitions around the globe. In particular, we would like to mention that our artists participated in art fairs in Paris, London, and Tokyo. Drawings by our artist Heidi Sill are currently shown in the "Gesichter" (faces) exhibition at Neues Museum Nuremberg together with works by Andy Warhol and Cindy Sherman. Nina Annabelle Märkl, a Munich-based artist with whom we started a collaboration recently, received a grant for a study visit to the renowned International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP) in New York and participated in two related exhibitions in the city.



Media Coverage

In the 1st quarter of 2015, we experienced good press coverage. In addition to an interview on Crowdstreet and an article in W&V (in February 2015), we received coverage on portals and blogs such as Yahoo, Locationinsider, InfoDigital, Für-Grü, Finanz-Geld, Aktien-Börsen, and VC Startups. Moreover, we were mentioned in the VDZ Start-up Report (whose members include 450 publishers that publish a total of 3,000 magazines combined).



Review of the 4th Pablo & Paul Vernissage

In an update by a start-up whose focus and business is art, art should play a major role. Thus, we would like to provide you with a picture and some videos of our 4th vernissage in Munich on 24 February, which featured our artists Alina Vergnano and Richard Wurm and attracted 150 visitors. We were very pleased to meet some Companists there!

During the day, Alina Vergnano designed the entrance wall in the BoConcept Brand Store. Here's a short video of the event with Alina Vergnano and of our vernissage:

Another highlight was the performance of slam poet Bumillo, who has won several awards and read poems about his view on the world of arts. Enjoy watching these videos as well:

Bumillo (#2): "Morning Thoughts"

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.
