Pitching for an investment in Taipei

Posted by Stephanie Su on

Hi Everyone!

 

2015 flew by so quickly, it's hard to believe it's already March of 2016! In my last update in October, I was in Taipei, Taiwan pitching PERSU to a group of investors. It was a short trip of mostly meetings and with a little bit of exploration/family time. 

Here is a glimpse of my trip I recorded for you guys!

Unfortunately, the end did not result in an investment. :( I still keep in touch with one of the investors so I'm crossing my fingers that I may get an investment in the future! In the meantime, I'll continue to work on PERSU and grow slowly, but surely. :)

 

Thank you for all of your support!

Xoxo,

Steph

Life after Kickstarter

Posted by Stephanie Su on

Hello!

It's been awhile since I've posted an update so I wanted to share a bit about what I've been up to with PERSU after completing fulfillment!

 

Since then, things have slowed down and I took up a part-time job to supplement my living expenses. And, I've been working on designing a new bag! However, due to the cost of production, the Kickstarter funds covered just enough for the production and shipping of the Jessica, Tom, and Sol bags without enough funding for additional designs. So, over the past couple of months I've been brainstorming options in order to receive more funding. While I am considering a second Kickstarter campaign, I've been given an opportunity to pitch potential investors in Taiwan! This week I flew to Taipei, Taiwan to pitch PERSU COLLECTION! 

I'm still currently traveling and will let you know how the meetings go! *crossing my fingers*

Thanks for following along on my journey! :)

Xoxo,

Steph

The Sol bags have arrived! And, meet Sol himself in my latest vlog video!

Posted by Stephanie Su on

Hi Everyone!

The Sol bags have finally arrived to me and are being shipped out this week and next week! The Sol bags arrived on time at the end of June at the Oakland port but this time around the shipment took much longer to process before getting released to me. I learned that part of the reason is because this time, I did not have a full container so my overseas shipment had to go through two warehouses before being trucked to my home. And with the 4th of July holiday, the warehouses and trucking service were a bit backed up. But, luckily they arrived safely and I've already started putting the new hang tags I designed on them! :)

New hang tags will be on every Sol bag!

And, as you may know the Sol bag was named after VIP Kickstarter backer Sol Tran during my campaign. Last month I got the chance to meet Sol in person and take him to a couple of my favorite LA local fitness spots (minus Gloveworx because they were full but we are going to try again later!) and chat with him and his lovely girlfriend over lunch at True Food Kitchen. Interested in meeting Sol? Check out the latest vlog video below! (Please excuse that I was a sweaty hot mess in it) :D

Thanks again for staying with me on my journey! I will be posting recommended cleaning tips for your removable interior next!

Xoxo,
