The Quest For New Investment

As any CEO will tell you, setting up your own startup can be an expensive business with lots of hidden costs. Since the turn of the new Investment picyear, as well as putting a great deal of effort into ensuring all the BODO websites are up and running and of the kind of standard that reflects our ambition, I have also been on the lookout for new investments. Because of some unforeseeable circumstances, it became apparent very early on in 2014, that BODO would need a new injection of cash. I had to do some serious belt-tightening and budget-shuffling, but I made it work because the alternative did not bear thinking about. Now I am focussing my attention on bringing in a new investor in order to secure BODO continues to grow and that we realise our ambitions and dreams.
I am pleased to say that I have had interest from a number of different sources, but I’m not willing to rush into anything. I think for me, one of the most important things when considering potential new investors is to ensure that BODO’s vision and ethics are not compromised in any way, shape or form. Some negotiations have proved promising, but I am always on the lookout for other options and so if you know anyone who you think would want to get on board, then please get in touch at peterlochan@bodofootwear.com. I am quietly confident that in the very near future, I will be bringing you good news about BODO and our expansion.
