Family Nation in 10 years has become an omnichannel leader in selling products for children and families through B2C ecommerce (family-nation.it) and distribution channel to B2B stores (buzzitalia.it). The company has delivered over 270,000 thousand orders with an outstanding rating on Trustpilot (96% of reviews at 5 or 4 stars) and serves over 1,000 stores throughout Italy. With over 200 brands and more than 8 thousand products (including clothing, toys, and furniture), a digital and print magazine, and a community of experts, professionals, and families, Family Nation is a one-stop shop for parents looking for the best in quality, beautiful design, and sustainability for their children.
Over the years, it has grown steadily and sustainably in both revenue and EBITDA, with a CAGR 26% 2017-2022, and has been breaking even for 7 years. In 2022 the revenue generated was over €6.5M with EBITDA of approx. €549K, a steadily growing average shopping cart (€100 for B2C and over €761 B2B), and a very low return rate for the industry (only 4%).
In 2017, Family Nation ran an equity crowdfunding campaign on Mamacrowd (concluded by raising €400K in 52 hours) and since then the company has been transformed: with revenue growth from €2 to €6.5M (a 220% growth) and EBITDA growing from €80K to €549K.
Family Nation is an innovative SME associated with the digital accelerator Nana Bianca. It is also a Benefit Company, attentive to the environment and people. This makes it a high reputational value and future proof partner.
Through the equity crowdfunding campaign, Family Nation aims to raise capital to accelerate growth, forecasting revenues of more than €15M in 2026. The raising will finance a development plan focused on: 1) omnichannel, which consists of integrating ecommerce with physical commerce in a new way through the opening of 6 Flagship Stores and 25 digital corners within partner stores; 2) the creation of own-brand products for the Italian and European markets. Thanks to 10 years of sales data, the company can guarantee quality, marginality and sustainability of the products it is producing; 3) Finally, the roll out of the Intelligent Birth List, launched in April 2023 with technology more innovative than any competitor. The List offers unparalleled flexibility for parents in choosing products and how the donations collected are spent.
Importantly, Family Nation has already begun to implement the development plan: in less than a month it already has more than 100 Gift Lists collected; it has made and presented prototypes of its wooden toys to retailers and is about to start initial production; it has closed deals with pilot corners and is developing the necessary technology.
On the campaign is available the optional Rubrication free of charge for the Investor as the costs are borne by Family Nation 2.
Family Nation 2 reserves the right of "liquidation preference" for all investors who join the campaign, who will therefore be reimbursed first in the event of an exit than the company's other shareholders (according to the order of preference indicated in the bylaws). All conditions are published in the bylaws found in the Documents section.
