Crua Outdoors Raises $380,000 in Latest Seedrs Fundraising Campaign
Exceeding $250,000 goal, new funds will be used for new tent rental website and other initiatives
SARANAC LAKE, New York - Today, Crua Outdoors-an Irish outdoor recreation company with a U.S. location in Saranac Lake, New York-announced the conclusion of its latest fundraising campaign on Seedrs. An equity crowdfunding platform, Seedrs allows people around the world to invest in forward-thinking, innovative companies like Crua.
Launched on March 1st, Crua's campaign raised nearly $380,000, exceeding the company's initial goal of $250,000. The funds will be used for a new tent rental website, additional product introductions, and strategic partnerships with other companies. Crua will also invest in Werifesteria, an inaugural outdoor event in the Adirondacks. The weekend-long event will allow New Yorkers to develop new skills, experience adventure, and foster a sense of community. Crua has even partnered with Paul Smith's College to help disadvantaged children gain a formal outdoor education.

In recent years, Crua has raised more than $1.3 million in sales revenue through crowdfunding for a wide range of products from tents to hammocks. The Crua "Modus" crowdfunding goal of $20,000 was surpassed in just under two hours, with the company raising more than $264,000 for the six-in-one camping system. The company's new tent rental service-which will be funded by its latest Seedrs campaign-allows users to rent Crua tents, suiting those who wish to experience the benefits of Crua without necessarily making a full purchase. The new service offers users a "try before you buy" opportunity.
"The Crua team is extremely grateful for our loyal customers, who once again came through to help us exceed our fundraising goal," said Crua founder and CEO Derek O'Sullivan. "This will allow us to launch new products and improve our existing product lines, re-energizing our customer service. For the first time ever, Crua users will be offered a tent rental service, allowing them to try our award-winning tents before buying them."
