About

“DOWN” BUT NOT “OUT”… 

We are so grateful to all of you who so generously supported this, our first Kickstarter campaign. Thanks to you! And although we did not make our mark, I can assure you, that we are using this time wisely. We are reflecting, studying and tweaking any and all aspects of this campaign in preparation for the one to come!

Make sure that you don’t miss our ongoing updates and special offers, and be among the first to know when the new Kangeaux Campaign goes live!

Thank You For Your Support! 

Team Kangeaux

 

KANGEAUX IS TRULY A ONE OF A KIND!

TO BEGIN WITH, THERE IS NOTHING ELSE LIKE IT ON THE MARKET! KANGEAUX’S PATENT-PENDING DESIGN IS TRULY UNIQUE AND IS LIKE NO OTHER CARRY-ALL SYSTEM CURRENTLY AVAILABLE. WHEN WE BEGAN SOURCING OUR MATERIALS WE KNEW ONE THING WAS FOR CERTAIN… IT NEEDED TO BE TOUGH! THAT’S WHY KANGEAUX IS MADE ENTIRELY FROM MILITARY AND MARINE GRADE COMPONENTS, ENSURING THE HIGHEST DURABILITY AND STRENGTH FOR ALL THAT LIFE DEMANDS. 

MARKETING SYNERGY

CO-BRANDING IS A MARKETING “NO-BRAINER”, AND KANGEAUX’S UNIQUE DESIGN LENDS ITSELF TO THIS TYPE OF SYNERGY.  COMPANIES AND ORGANIZATIONS CAN EASILY INCORPORATE THEIR OWN NAMES, LOGOS, AND VARIOUS CAUSES, ALLOWING FOR UNLIMITED MARKETING AND CO-BRANDING POSSIBILITIES.

Risks and challenges

We’ve expended a tremendous amount of time and energy getting Kangeaux to where it is today. We’ve already made numerous sacrifices (personal, as well as financial), experienced too many headaches to count, and worked through more than a few sleepless nights! But we fully expect the challenges to become more demanding, moving forward. And we are ready for them!

As the product’s creator, I am fortunate to have a small group of very smart, creative and innovative individuals working on this project with me who are as committed to its success as am I. I am also extremely blessed to have found a manufacturer in my very own community who has seen the value of this product and who has put the skills and resources of the company on the line in order to help us get it to market. We have every confidence that this facility can handle production demands up to and beyond those that would be created by meeting our funding goals. And if, through the generosity of our supporters, we find that we have well-surpassed our goals and, therefore, the production capacity of this manufacturer, we have located others who will be able to “take up the slack." In that event, we will also plan to engage the services of a "fulfillment company" in order to ensure timely disbursement of rewards.

We’ve made every effort to anticipate and counteract, prior to launch, any potential problems with the product or with distribution. And we have been successful in correcting several situations that could have created issues down the line. Nonetheless, this (Kickstarter) is unknown territory. We’ve researched the process endlessly; but we still expect to be tested daily as we maneuver through the funding and fulfillment period. We fully understand what a huge undertaking this is. Therefore, we expect to double and redouble our own efforts as we continue to learn and work to keep our supporters informed and motivated throughout this process. We are committed to completing this project is such a manner that every individual involved is fully satisfied with the outcome and would, in fact, do it all again!
