Popular British ski wear brand Planks are set to launch a new crowdfunding campaign, the “Powder Days Raise”, giving skiers a chance to own their very own piece of this rapidly growing company.
They say this initiative will give their community a chance to “invest in the future of skiing” and hope that by encouraging their community to become shareholders in the business, customers will become true brand advocates and a crucial part of the Planks brand.
From humble beginnings selling t-shirts and beanies from a van in a Val d’Isère car park in 2008, Planks are now an internationally recognised brand, with a worldwide customer base sharing their love for adventure and the mountains. Just look around next time you hit the slopes and we’re sure you’ll see at least one Planks outfit!
As a result, the company are now gearing up to grow even larger by opening an investment round to the public, allowing the ski community the opportunity to become a shareholder and own a part of the future of this exciting British brand.
Planks’ founder and ex-professional skier Jim Adlington, said: “I’m so grateful to the ski community for backing Planks since the beginning. I think it’s rad the community can be a part of it”
Not only are Planks committed to creating stylish, high performance outerwear, but they also have great community values. As well as championing British skiers, they also have a steadfast commitment to planet earth, placing great value on using organic and recycled fabrics in many of their products, with 1.5m plastic bottles recycled to date!
On the business side of things, Planks’ current growth is backed up by some impressive stats. They have experienced a historical growth of 40% year on year for 3 consecutive years (pre-COVID 2016-2019), as well as global ecommerce sales to 46 countries in last 12 months and a database of 37,000 growing 35% year on year.
Skiers can invest from as little as £10 and will benefit from a range of fantastic rewards alongside their shares, based on the level of investment.
