Launch a new product via crowd funding

Retro Shades New York

Crowd fund to launch a new product and new venture.

FundMeFundYou is a new crowdfunding site  that allows people to raise money through multiple contributions using the crowdfunding model. Crowdfunding is a popular non-traditional method of acquiring funds. Unlike traditional funding methods, e.g., venture capital and bank loans, crowd sourcing leverages the mass-market power of social media to achieve a unified financial goal.  Even the modest cash donations from numerous–hundreds or thousands of contributors–can quickly add up to a substantial amount of money.

Crowdfunding is a powerful tool for launching and marketing a new start-up business.   The start up money you acquire can help you to mass product your new innovative product and  build and grow your new business.

The major benefits of crowd funding are:

  •  Generate Buzz.  A crowdfunding campaign creates immediate exposure for your new product.  It also help to generate excitement which can increase awareness and sales.
  • A test market.  It can also serve to  test the validity of an idea; to see if it is popular and / or whether you need to tweak it.  The feedback from supporters is valuable market research.  
  • Grow your market. Create a new customer base or increase your existing fan following.  Your campaign contributors  are your most enthusiastic fans.  They will help grow your customer bases, by promoting your project to their friends.
  • The free cash infusion.   The extra income from the funds you’ve raised is the ultimate benefit. You can now start your business and live your dream.  
  • You are always  in control.   You retain 100% ownership and control.  You don’t have to sell any equity in you company or part with your invention or idea.

Crowd funding for a fashion business startup

Retro Shades New York, aka RSNY—sample  project

By Rose Smith

Hi. Thanks for stopping by my FundMeFundYou page!

About RSNY

Retro Shades NY, aka RSNY are inspired vintage New York City sunglasses.  The eye-catching flamboyant oversize styles and high quality design celebrates the heyday of NYC of a bygone era: A time of fun, high fashion, jet setting, mystery and romance.   We spent over a year having fun researching and designing these retro style shades. Considerable thought went into these limited edition designs, materials, and functionality.

The RSNY  will combine the best of today’s technology with the cool, bold style and durability from the past.  The result will be one-of-a-kind works of art for your eyes that last.

 

Why Retro Shades New York?

The inspiration came from my obsession with vintage sunglasses.  I love collecting and wearing old shades.  My collection comprises the best of what NYC vintage shops and web merchants have to offer.  I’ve always get complements from my collection and people often ask where they can buy the  shades.  I love old designer shades—the durable quality, style, and exclusivity of being the only one with a pair today.  However, because the technology is not current,  I always carry another pair for UV protection, and to combat excessive sun glare. Not to mention my vintage shades can scratch very easily.  Not fun.

This is why we’ve combined great high quality craftsmanship with today’s best technology.  Our ultra thin, micro-engineered, ultra clear multilayer lenses economically combines these modern features: Polarized filter to eliminate sun glare from water, snow, shiny objects for a better view;  the UVA layer  blocks out 100% UVA, UVB and UV400 rays; the last layer is scratch-resistant  for that extra durability you need and expect form a shades that you want to last.  The above features plus our unique truly vintage style will cost many time more in competing brands.  You can find similar shades costing from $300 to $1,200 and more.  However, we’re keeping the cost affordable for this quality.  We will retail RSNY for $150 per shades.  We would like to give everyone who supports our project a pair of RSNY, but it would not be economically possible.  However, we are offering a pair of RRS to all supporters that pledge as little as $50. That’s $100 off the suggested retail!

We sourced out manufacturing from the makers of today’s top eye-wear brands.  They manufacture Oakley, Coach, Fendi, and Coach. Our manufacturing, marketing and sales partners are ready to start. We plan to sell exclusively online thereby eliminating middlemen, further reducing costs.  In addition, we’re a small family run company, setup as a virtual business with few full-time employees.  The savings from our overhead will be passed on to YOU our supporters /customers.

To date, the chosen vintage designs have never been reproduced, until now. This is a big deal.  We’ve made them bold, modern and of high quality. You could be the first to sport one of these limited addition chic vintage shades.

This is a custom designed based on vintage style.  These two designs will be the first in a the series:  RSNY 1962   & RSNY 1972 .

Your pledge will help us complete the process needed to take these shades from prototype to production. We plan to produce 300 watches in the first run.
