Following our official launch on CrowdCube at the end of January, Catipilla has smashed our crowdfunding target in just two days! And as of 10th February, we have attracted 211 investors and raised £151,372. That’s 151% of the original target. And with 21 days left for investors to get on board, these incredible results are constantly on the rise.
This achievement is the next chapter in the Catipilla success story. We’ve seen orders double year-on-year since entrepreneur and ex-NASA engineer, Andy Sutton, founded the business 3 years ago. Over 2,500 Catipilla products have now been sold into 16 countries worldwide. With orders increasing more than five-fold during the 2020 lockdown.
Commenting on this success, our Founder and CEO, Andy Sutton said, “The cat segment of the pet market is worth an estimated £5 billion in the UK alone. And we feel it’s largely underserved. Food aside, there’s no dominant cat brand. For too long the UK’s 8 million cats have put up with unimaginative, poorly designed and low-quality products. If you’re a cat owner, you’ll know what we mean.”
In January 2021, Catipilla launched a new and enhanced range of Climbers, High Plates, Hammocks, Tee Pees and Scratchers. We deliver on a philosophy to build innovative products for happy cats and stylish homes. All underpinned by a commitment to developing goods with a unique difference. Using high-quality materials and a high-class finish, whilst maintaining affordable pricing.
“We’re passionate about cat health, well-being and happiness,” says Andy. “And we know that there are a lot of cat lovers out there who feel the same. This crowdfunding raise is an opportunity to join us as we develop new products and accelerate growth through the UK and international markets.”
