SAFEassure, LLC was founded in Portland, Oregon, and created as a Limited Liability Corporation. SAFEassure, LLC develops and markets soaps utilizing time-sensitive dyes promoting sanitary and safe environments to businesses and parents interested in maximizing cleanliness. The company will initially be based out of a residential apartment in Portland.
The executive team will retain at least 70% of the equity in the company. Every $2,500 dollars of investment in the company will secure up to 1% equity in the company. Assuming 30% of the company is owned by investors, Devon Nevius will retain 40% ownership, with Kevin Meinert retaining 30%.
Total funding required to get the business started is estimated at $250,000, of which the executive management team - Devon Nevius and Kevin Meinert - will invest $100,000 and $75,000, respectively. An additional $75,000 investment necessary to develop a product and effectively bring SAFEassure's products to an initially limited geographic region is sought from other investor(s).
The key elements in the start-up plan for the company are:
Development of a working prototype.
Funding of working capital requirements and promotional materials for the principal operating activities of the company.
Gaining patent approval.
Establish a strong brand image early to position ourselves in the market.
The founders have already developed a rough prototype of the product. Our start-up period includes 5 months of work by an independently-contracted chemist at a local lab who will perfect this design into a finished prototype, with the correct balance of soap and dyes in four colors. The final two months of this start-up period include safety tests per government regulations to assure high quality.
