Hello KF Buyers,
Hello Kickfurther community. Canaima Outdoors is back after a successful first Kickfurther Co-Op. We have had previous experiences with crowdfunding projects and we are energized by the feedback and support that a community of backers can provide. That’s why we are coming to Kickfurther, not just any platform to finance inventory, but one that is based on an active community. Now that we have had our first experience and were successful we feel confident to grow the relationship. This Co-Op will cover similar inventory as last time (with an additional accessory). It will have a very similar timeline, and it will cover a similar quantity of original inventory of the Treepod product than our former co-op.
The TreePod Lounger and Cabana are the most successful products we’ve had in our company’s 9-year history. We launched a Kickstarter campaign last year and raised over 430k in the campaigns (Kickstarter, Indiegogo and BackerKit) selling over 1,800 units to 1,500 backers.
In just the last 5 months, we have signed important retail accounts such as Academy Sports, Northern Tool, Scheels as well as international distributors in Australia, New Zealand & Korea; and we are now close to signing another 4 countries: Canada, Germany, UK and Costa Rica. We have a product with worldwide appeal.
The holiday season is here and we need to bulk up our inventory to meet this demand coming in from different channels. This Co-Op will cover our TreePod Lounger and Cabana that is currently en route from China and we expect will arrive in our warehouse in the next two weeks, but we have allowed some buffer in case of delays. The inventory should sell out very quickly through wholesale and direct to consumer channels quickly due to holiday demand. Because this Co-Op is a similar quantity of the same inventory with the same timeline with the holiday season environment we are extremely confident we can make this a smooth Co-Op experience.
We market our products using among other things our brand social media pages

Although our Treepod product line is young we are an established business who understand our sector and how to manage our cash flow. Our other brand is established and provides Canaima with consistent revenue for years. This revenue can help support this Co-Op in the event that the treepods do not move as quickly as we project. Our revenue in the past 12 months is over 1.5 million dollars. We will have a personal guarantee and also signed an authorization with regard to our third party warehouse so that Kickfurther will have visibility into inventory levels.
Because we have strong experience with rewards crowdfunding we know about the importance of communication. We will provide regular updates on at least a monthly basis as well as seek to address your questions in a timely manner as they may arise.
