Mimoona – Crowdfunding for The Fashion Industry

Why Do Fashion Designers Need to Test Their Designs?

Building and thriving with your own fashion business is not an easy task these days. In an industry where trends are changing faster each year and the number of collections increases, it is difficult for a fashion brand to assess how much to produce of each style, color and size. Incorrect predictions can lead to excess inventory, lost sales, and even cash flow difficulties

We believe there should be a way to do fashion with more peace of mind, a way that lets designers breathe and express their amazing creativity, a way with less risk, and we think we found it. It`s time to know what you think.

RetireAmerica.com Announces Launch


2013 /PRNewswire/ — RetireAmerica.com announced today the launch of its web-based capital protected equity crowdfunding portal. The launch is in beta form and is intended to become fully functional by year-end. Empowering Entrepreneurs, Protecting Investors, Creating Jobs. RetireAmerica.com (www.retireamerica.com) announced today the launch of its crowdfunding portal which will offer investors the opportunity to make equity investments in early stage companies through its unique financing structure that combines capital protection with an equity investment. Initially, investments on the platform will be limited to accredited investors, but will be expanded to non-accredited eligible investors following full implementation of Title III of the JOBS Act.

Steve Colmar, RetireAmerica.com’s CEO stated, “Everyone knows that early stage investing is risky. Our mission has been to develop a product that opens up investment opportunities in early stage companies to investors who want to minimize their risk of loss. And now the crowdfunding revolution has arrived, making equity investments in early-stage companies available to countless new investors through groundbreaking social media outlets or portals. But despite its transformational influence on capital markets, crowdfunding hasn’t solved how to reduce the risk of loss of capital in early stage investments. The RetireAmerica.com product addresses this problem through our unique capital protected structure. Our protection feature allows the investor to protect some or all of his or her investment, and, in some cases, to redeploy non-risk capital at the investor’s discretion by converting it into additional equity.”

“We believe our capital protected product, with its unique conversion feature, is advantageous for both parties to the investment equation. For the entrepreneur, it provides a ready pool of capital to further their growth plans. And for the investor, it provides an opportunity to protect capital and to make additional incremental investments if and when it suits their individual risk profile.”
