In December 2021, Robert and Sandie Chan launched KOALA HUG, a premium bedding brand with soft, comfortable bedding made from 100% TENCEL™ Lyocell, eucalyptus wood from sustainably managed forests. Through a crowdfunding campaign, they managed to gain start-up capital to launch their online store in the second quarter of 2022.
‘So far it has exceeded our wildest expectations! The minimum target amount was reached within two weeks. The entrepreneurs ended the crowdfunding campaign successfully. ‘We can make a flying start with the gained capital. At KOALA HUG we love a good night’s sleep and we wish everyone a good night’s sleep!’.
