How capable is the team? Have they developed something like this before? Do they have crowdfunding experience? Manufacturing experience? A lot of campaigns fail to deliver their product because they don’t know what they’re doing.
Founded in 2016 Skinners is a fashion company specialized in producing footwear. As a winner of Red Dot Design Award 2017 company devoted itself to producing “sock shoes” that provide freedom, comfort and durability. The team of young professionals led by Petr believes in the strengths of the company and the mission to create a strong bond between human beings and nature. They delivered almost 25000 products in 120 countries.
SKINNERS 2.0 is their second crowdfunding project. The first one SKINNERS 1.0 another “sock shoes” with the same technology and durability. That time the team managed to raise $654,557 with the help of 9,624 backers. As for SKINNERS 2.0, the team has managed to raise US$ 610,817 in 21 days. Sounds very promising as they have 22 days left.
How transparent are the campaigners? Do they give their backers valuable updates on their progress? Do they engage with their backers? Crowdfunding is all about community, sharing information and building a meaningful relationship with the people who fund your project.
In 21 days we have 217 comments and 0 updates for SKINNERS 2.0. Seems like the team doesn’t want to thank for the achieved goals that are usual updates in crowdfunding platforms. For the first campaign, the team shared 15 updates and 747 comments. Half of the updates are for backers only.
Maybe sharing the pictures of new model lines will bring more backers…
Not very responsive in answering the comments quickly, but very responsive in giving a thorough explanation.
