Overview

ITALEAU is seeking $5 million of equity to grow its consumer lifestyle platform, bringing everyday luxury (apparel and home) products made in Italy to its customers at affordable prices.

Significant revenue growth: $1.3 million in 2020; $4.3 million in 2021; $7.9 million in 2022


Launched in 2017; based in Sausalito, California


Works directly with an expanding network of production facilities in Italy, skipping intermediaries and gatekeepers

Opportunity


Consumers are over-paying for high-quality products due to (materials, craftsmanship, functionality, sustainability) inefficiencies in the supply-chain


Total export of apparel-only consumer goods from Italy is $5.5 billion


Significant expansion opportunities

  • consumer channels (men and children)
  • geographies (Canada, Asia, Europe, Far East)
  • delivery channels (own-retail, wholesale retailers, catalogues)
  • countries of origin (expand to additional EU countries)

Solution

  • Focus on essentials (products with a high usage frequency) and not short-term trends or special-occasion products

 

  • High quality and the allure of Italy

 

  • Work with the actual manufacturers, skipping intermediaries

 

  • Retail directly to consumers, skipping resellers

 

  • Target competitive consumer prices and attractive margins
