Funded on Crowdcube: A new feature on Amazon Launchpad

  • Friday 9th March 2018

We’re proud to announce that Amazon Launchpad has dedicated a page to ‘Funded on Crowdcube’ to showcase all the fantastic products made by our Funded Club.

Amazon Launchpad offers eligible Funded Club members an array of services that help accelerate their business, including:

  • Brand Development: Custom product pages help bring products to life through photos and videos. Founders can tell their story and connect with customers in a more personal way, such as with a Q&A about the startup.

  • Customer Reach: Amazon’s most powerful marketing tools – including merchandised placements, personalised recommendations, and participation in the Amazon Vine customer reviews programme – to give products added visibility.

  • World-class Fulfilment: Startups enjoy access to Amazon’s UK fulfilment network and fast, unlimited shipping with Amazon Prime, along with exceptional customer service.

One of the companies featured on Amazon Launchpad is Sugru. Having had a global outlook from day one, Sugru achieved retail listings in many key territories prior to working with Amazon Launchpad, which greatly helped a smooth integration onto their programme. Kicking off in the US back in 2016 and following in the UK, Germany and most recently France, Japan and Canada, Sugru considers Launchpad as an essential partner in achieving its mission in getting more people around the world fixing and making things again.

Sugru founder Jane ni Dhulchaointigh comments: "We’ve come an awfully long way since we tested the waters with our first crowdfunding campaign back in 2015. As well as launching overseas and working on new products and technologies, we now have two million brilliantly engaged and loyal customers around the world. Amazon and Launchpad have provided us with a truly global platform that allows people everywhere the chance to get their hands on Sugru. The partnership delivered a reach that allowed us to celebrate ten million Sugru fixes last year - and hopefully it will help us celebrate 100 million in the near future."
