Information The team will be hosting an informal investor evening in London next Wednesday 19th April - meet the Founders and try an Ooho for yourself! Register your interest here: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/ooho-investor-event-tickets-33577056881 The Company had £150,000 of its SEIS allowance remaining at the start of this raise. This was allocated to lead investors on a first-come-first-served basis at the outset of the pitch. Any investments made by Crowdcube investors after the SEIS allowance has been allocated will not be SEIS eligible but will potentially be eligible for EIS. The potential tax relief of any investment will depend on an investor's individual circumstances.

Idea

Skipping Rocks Lab’s mission is to make packaging waste disappear and Ooho! is our first product.

Ooho! is a sustainable packaging alternative to plastic bottles and cups, made from a seaweed extract. It is entirely biodegradable and so natural you can actually eat it! Ooho sachets are flexible packets of water, drunk by tearing a hole and pouring into your mouth, or consumed whole. Our packaging is cheaper than plastic and can encapsulate any beverage including water, soft drinks, spirits, and even cosmetics.

For 2 years, we have been developing the material and innovative production technology, for which we have recently filed a patent application. We are supported by the Climate-KIC accelerator based at Imperial College London. We want to solve the plastic waste problem and reduce climate impact from packaging.

Ooho! has received wide media traction; featured in the New York Times, Guardian, BBC, and Business Insider, whose Ooho video received over 20m viewings. We won the Wired Retail 2016 Start-up of the year, the Lexus Design Award and delivered a TEDx talk.

We’ve been selling Oohos from pop ups for the past 6 months in London and recently signed our first commercial license. We are speaking to event organisers, including Virgin Sports and Live Nation, to run pilots this year and major events in 2018. We believe Ooho! can be the global solution to water and drinks on-the-go.
