Getting started as a small independent business is always tough - a huge chunk of business start-ups don’t reach their first anniversary, often through no fault of their own. We’ve been incredibly fortunate with the support we’ve received, both from enthusiastic customers who’ve come back time and again and who’ve ‘evangelised’ what we do far and wide - they’re the best marketing campaign we could hope for, and we’re grateful to every one of you!
In addition, we’ve run a total of 4 crowdfunding campaigns - an initial one to get our first products to market and, more recently, campaigns in 2015, 2019 and 2021 to expand and update our ranges with the professional look that helps us compete on the high street with the 'big name products'. Each of these campaigns exceeded their targets significantly, thanks to the generosity of those supporters who helped us get them off the ground!
We’d like to thank those generous folks who have helped us get the products where they are today. Below is our 'Gallery of Gratitude’, where we’ve inscribed the names of all the BimbleBees who’ve contributed to the project (at least, those who have not asked to remain anonymous). Thanks for your support - it means so much to us!
