Urk Eyewear - Partnership/Investment Opportunity
To all my entrepreneur minded friends out there, how are we doing?
I am an aspiring entrepreneur myself. I have recently finished the infrastructure for my second business, Urk Eyewear. I'm not sure if everyone is aware, but the eyewear industry is one of the most monopolized and overpriced market segments in the entire world. Optical frames can typically be manufactured for around $15.00 and following presciption lenses the total price tag is generally in the range of $35-$50. Unfortunately, the average retail price for the typical consumer is $350. When I found this information out, I decided to do something about it - Urk Eyewear was created.
Here's the deal, my design team and I are preparing to launch an online retail business that offers "Designer Eyewear without Designer Price." As I mentioned, this is my second project that I am currently involved in. The majority of my money is tied up in my first company (involved as a minority investor) so I am using a crowdfunding platform called RocketHub. I have put together a video and some resources to provide viewers with an idea of what we are trying to accomplish. CBS News and 60 Minutes have both done stories on the eyewear industry recently. If you go to our page, you can check out all the information. I hope you guys can help us out and help consumers save money in this tough economy.
Honestly, I truly believe the eyewear industry needs to change. We are trying to provide that opportunity to consumers but we need everyones help in getting the word out about our company. Anything and everything would be greatly appreciated.
As mentioned, RocketHub is a crowdfunding platform. As the CEO of the company, we are not close minded towards alternative financing. Banks are out of the question. We have current financial documents that show and project the profitability of a company like this. Obviously, we are not going to just provide that information to anyone. If there are serious inquiries about becoming a partner in this company or having some minority ownership through financial backing we are all ears. I encourage all viewers to check the RocketHub page out first and view our video. This page will provide the majority of the information you will need prior to inquiring about any potential partnering opportunities.
