Before we finish the chapter on 2015 and jump into 2016, we wanted to take the time to thank each and every one of you for supporting us and helping us get to where we are today!
We had an amazing year full of growth and challenges. If you are receiving this, it means you crossed our path in one way or another and added to the fun. You may have met us poolside at one of the kazillion swim meets we attended, or possibly before your big Ironman race. Maybe a friend shared some sun barrier with you when you forgot your sunscreen and you went on to conquer the day, sunburn-free. However you may have come to know us, we are sure happy that you did, and we thank you for your ongoing support.
It is surreal when we step back and realize how much Zealios has grown this year. We launched four new products that completely surpassed our wildest expectations, added some amazing distribution partners, attended over 100 regional events, and grew over 273%!! What is truly exciting is that we feel like we are just getting started. We can hardly wait to announce the 2016 sponsored athletes and teams as they are an incredible group of athletes and people. We also have some exciting new products waiting in the wings, and we have stayed true to our performance-based approach. These new products will help you train, race, and recover better than ever.
On a related note, we have just begun the process of raising a growth-round of capital through CircleUP, an investment platform specifically for companies who produce consumer goods. This round of growth capital will help sustain us through our large growth cycle and ensure that we are able to continue to provide you with the best products in the business. If you are an accredited investor, or know an accredited investor who may be interested in a fast growing sport/personal care company, please engage with us here:
Finally, from all of us at Team Zealios: thank you. Thank you for believing in us, supporting us, and spreading the word about who we are and what we do. It’s been such an incredible ride thus far, and we absolutely can’t wait to create next chapter of our story. We couldn’t do it without you.
Enjoy the remainder of the Holiday season, train hard, and we will see you in 2016!!Kevin, Austin, and Megan
