PASSION BUG: Market-disruptive data-driven manufacturer is seeking additional funding for growth

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn

Passion Bug is the first company in the world able to just-in-time manufacture ultra-premium gift bags with unlimited designs for brands and retailers. We are disrupting this $3 billion/year market in the U.S. Currently, almost all brands and retailers source custom printed gift bags from China, one design at a time, with high minimum order quantities, long lead times, and tariffs & port fees. With Passion Bug's unique data-driven solution, production times are very short, there are no MOQs, and most importantly, there's no risk of over-ordering or under-ordering inventory of each SKU.  

We have already self-funded with over $1 million, and we're seeking additional investment for working capital, inventory, and licenses. In discussions with Disney (individual character bags in mass merchants for princess, Disney/Pixar movie characters like Frozen, Marvel Superheroes, and Star Wars characters), Walmart (Animal Planet Endangered Species Campaign), Petco (top dog breeds), Starbucks (local artist series to dovetail with "Been There" series), Carnival (tailored cruise imagery), major league sports (individual players on bags), Girl Scouts cookie drive (upsell of regionalized souvenir gift bags with different cookie flavors), Hilton (7,000 meeting and event planners that can offer a value added service of short run custom bags for weddings, Bar Mitzvahs, Quinceaneras, Graduations, small business meetings, and trade shows), and many others. Many licensing agreements and manufacturer's rep agreements have already been signed. 

We are developing a patentable, world's first robotics and motion control solution to insert rope handles onto gift bags automatically. We have numerous and broad omni-channel opportunities including retail, eCommerce, Print-On-Demand marketplace, customer loyalty initiatives, and fundraising opportunities. We have been certified as national suppliers for Staples Promotional Products, HALO Branded Solutions, Advertising Specialty Industry Silver membership, RangeMe retail buying platform members (11,500 retail buyers), and more. 

Our products are sustainably sourced and made in the USA (San Diego). Our CEO has 25 years of relevant industry experience. Investor proposal and Proforma financials available upon request.
