WHAT HAS HAPPENED UP UNTIL NOW ...
The idea was born
While hiking, Lukas' phone fell down on the ground and the screen was shattered immediately. How annoying! He started to look for solutions on the internet, but did not find anything that remotely satisfied him. Because of this, Lukas started to work on a solution himself and developed REELOQ - an innovative anti-drop system! (His mechanical engineering degree might have been of help ;) )
Lukas meets Julia
Lukas met Julia - a business student - at a start up event. Julia was immediately enthusiastic about the idea and started to help Lukas with her business skills.
The first prototypes
After a year of intensive development and countless test phases, we produced 100 REELOQs and sold them to interested persons. Within a very short time they were sold out - without any marketing. We knew: this could really work!
After the interested persons had extensively tested REELOQ, we collected their feedback and incorporated it into the final product. With the help of an investment from private investors, we started our series production and programmed our website.
2 minutes 2 million
On May 12th, 2020 we appeared in Austria's largest startup TV show and successfully won over Dr. Haselsteiner (Strabag) and Mrs. Schneider (Mediashop). We started the official sale of our REELOQs the same day.
After our successful sales launch, our REELOQ got listed in Gigasport throughout Austria and cooperations with the Alpine Club (Graz) and the Austrian Federal Fire Brigade followed.
Things are going well
At the beginning of 2021 we started selling our products in Germany and hired our first employees. We had another appearance on German TV (Einfach Genial) and cooperated with the Austrian mountain rescue service.
At the moment we are in the scaling stage of our startup. This year we want to start selling REELOQ in Italy and Switzerland. Moreover, we're working on two completely different and new products - so stay tuned!
