DISCLAIMER

Every investment decision must be based on an examination of an exhaustive set of information provided by the entrepreneur on his online profile. Spreds only proceeds to a limited verification of this information and does not control the investment opportunity within this company. Spreds did not verify the extent to which the business plan is deemed realistic and does not intervene with the final Information Note, including the retained maximum valuation. Spreds will align itself with the financial terms negotiated with the co-investor(s).

Given the limited amount of time left before the end of the year, your investment in Fishtripr may be eligible for Tax Shelter 2020 and not 2019, which means that the Tax Shelter advantage might be eligible for your 2021 Tax Return (and not 2020).

In the event that this fundraising round closes in 2020, we will offer an opt-out right in order to allow investors to recover their investment.
Please note that if the campaign reaches €30,000 before December 24th, 2020, the campaign shall close at such time. If this amount is not reached, the campaign will continue until March 12th, 2021.

Introduction

Fishtripr is the platform for outdoor fishing experiences.

They're on a mission to get millions of people outside to exercise their mind, body, and soul through recreational fishing.

For consumers, they're the easy to use, simple way to book and pay different fishing experiences. They remove all the hassle and give their customers hundreds of options according to location, level, species or type of fishing.

They connect local guides to clients for fishing adventures in a social and easy way! They reduce the risk, cost and time for guides to scale their fishing business.

The alternative for consumers seeking outdoors fishing experiences is relying on Google search functions, to find the appropriate license from the local authorities, giving access to specific areas for specific species with specific gear at a specific time...Not to mention all the tricks of the trade to catch the first fish. This can feel quite daunting for beginners and may discourage even the best candidates.

Fishtripr is there to remove barriers for supply and demand in the recreational fishing space.

Consumers focus on getting outside fishing; Guides focus on teaching and retaining clients.

Fishtripr takes care of the rest.

Intended Impact


In 2019, Sport Fishing is one of the most popular outdoors activity worldwide that attracts millions of people throughout the 5 continents. The World Bank estimates that the number of recreational anglers worldwide varies between 220 and 700 million.

Furthermore, recreational fishing is an economic powerhouse. According to European Angling Alliance, more than 30 million licensed anglers generated over €25 billion in the European Union in 2018. After going through aforementioned data, it has been already cleared that there’s no sign of slowing down in the growth rate of the fishing sector in the near future.

They exist because outdoor activity has been shown to improve mental and physical health for the consumer, and they want to make it easier for the market to connect and transact with recreational fishing.

Research shows humans spend 93% of their time indoors which is causing health problems. Fishtripr is here to bring recreational fishing to the masses, and get consumers outside for an outdoor experience after a long day or week in the office.

Access to fishing tend to be very difficult. Also, as for fishing guides, booking into sessions tend to be complicated and expensive which causes frustration for the consumers.
