Bixbee Launches on Kickfurther to Raise Capital for Inventory Financing of Deal-Flow

Crowd-Funding Campaign to Raise $119,872 in 11 Days or Less to Fund Their Production of Bestselling Backpacks

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Mar 25, 2016) - Kickfurther, a leading inventory and invoice financing crowd-funding platform that connects companies and backers seeking qualified short-term deal financing, announced today it has partnered with Bixbee, a designer backpack and accessory brand, to finance their inventory to fund production of their bestselling backpacks for the 2016 Back to School Season on the Kickfurther crowd-funding platform.

The $3.0 Billion U.S. backpack market has been growing at a 34% compound annual growth rate. This creates an amazing opportunity for Bixbee's growth. Their products bridge functionality and durability with fashion and fun. Bixbee's hugely popular packs found favor with 3-10 year olds because of the fun, creative ways their imaginations take flight. Parents love their horizontal design with ergonomic attributes and superior quality. For every backpack purchased, Bixbee donates a schoolbag with supplies to a kid in need.

Bixbee's inventory offering goal is to raise $119,872 USD before the funding close date of April 6, 2016. They are offering 14% profit to their backers over a projected 9 months term. This is Bixbee's 1st campaign with Kickfurther.
