Our Journey So Far
CEO, Director of Rubber Monkey and Co-Founder
We are not your normal company. Not only in our goals we’ve set for ourselves, but also in the methods we use to run it. We’ve invested massive time and effort in technology and systems that customers rarely get to see. However, the results are real and the benefits of our approach is what makes our company steps ahead of our competitors.
When Nigel and I started Rubber Monkey we knew there was enormous potential for a company that could really deliver on the promise to be different. The time has come to propel the company forward with the support of new investment. We plan to maximise the potential of Rubber Monkey and the work we’ve already done, in developing a world class experience for local customers.
We want customers to be a part of our company so that not only can you benefit from the increased range of products, lower prices and better overall service, but you can also take pride in ownership of the company behind it.
I welcome you on this journey with us and look forward to having you as part of our Rubber Monkey family.
Director of Rubber Monkey and Co-Founder
I’m thrilled to be able to offer you the opportunity to invest in Rubber Monkey. I’m a proud New Zealander and have been involved in successful New Zealand e-commerce ventures for over 20 years.
I believe that Rubber Monkey is one of the most exciting business opportunities in New Zealand e-commerce today. Here’s a great opportunity for you to get in on the ground floor and come with us on our journey.
What's On Offer
Shortly we’ll be offering potential investors the opportunity to invest in Rubber Monkey. You can choose to invest from $500; after which you’ll become a shareholder and own a part of Monkey! One dollar equals one share. Our four different investment tiers come with their own investor benefits including attending exclusive Monkey events, receiving VIP deals and joining our Monkey advisory group.
If we were to progress on that goal using current cashflow and profit we would not be able to make the expansion now or only in a limited way. This would also have an adverse effect on our New Zealand business while it is still rapidly growing. To plan for our success we need to ensure we have sufficient funding to support this expansion on its own, until it is profitable.
You don’t get ideas from banks. Our customers have amazing ideas. Making money for investors who are passionate and care about us is much more exciting to us than approaching a bank for a loan.
Once you have a log in, and our campaign is live you'll head to our campaign page, click 'make a pledge' and enter your pledge details.Pledge me has an easy guide to investing that you can follow here.
Once the campaign is live on Pledge Me you can choose the amount you’d like to invest with Rubber Monkey starting from $500. There are four different investment tiers that you can choose from. T1 $500+, T2 $1000+, T3 $5,000+, T4 $10,000+. Each tier comes with its own investor benefits.
We see this group as being able to offer valuable feedback, new ideas and offer Rubber Monkey a fresh perspective on various initiatives. More info will be available on this soon.
Any profits will continue to be used for growing the company rather than declaring dividends. This allows us to take advantage of the current fast growth in the e-commerce market.
In the future the board would determine the best way to use profits, such as reinvestment, shareholder dividends, or possibly a combination of both.
Australian expansion means access to a wider range of brands and products for New Zealand customers, as some brands will only allow us to stock them if we're Australian based.
The combined customer base of New Zealand and Australia makes it possible for Rubber Monkey to increase our product offerings, reduce sourcing costs and provide better access to more brands than ever before. This will greater serve all New Zealand customers as a result.
Whilst we can’t predict when the government will reopen borders, we do know that we are in a reopening phase. We expect to ramp up expansion plans early in the new year, but in the meantime, we are working on logistics, securing our lease, hiring staff, building infrastructure and contracting couriers. We are happy to discuss more with investors as we progress.
