Say goodbye to all your problems you faced while camping because Cinch is here.
Setting up a tent.
Recharging your devices.
Comfort. Light. Bright. Portability. Safety. Handling. Temperature.
All of this, sorted by this one, single, awesome tent.
You heard that right! ALL OF THE ABOVE.
Cinch is a startup located in Lancashire, UK. It is founded by Jake Jackson, a free spirit, a camper, and an entrepreneur at heart.
The product was heavily funded by the Kickstarter community. His campaign received huge support from the community, with lots of enthusiastic backers.
JUST GO FOR IT. Too many people just talk and say “I had that idea”, but actions speak louder than words.
1,341 to be precise! With total pledged amount of £366,905 (More than 12 times of their campaign’s goal).
Guys! You rock!
We got a chance to speak with Jake about his passion and entrepreneurial spirit. We had a few questions for him, and here’s what he has to tell the world.
Before we begin, I’d like you to know that when I first saw the video of Cinch tents on Facebook, man! It was totally cool. Also, we heard you’re a camper. Tell us more about your adventures, about yourself, and your team at Cinch.
Jake: Thanks for the kind words. 😉
I got into camping mainly through festivals, where in the most part, you have no choice but to camp. After enjoying camping (in a Cinch, of course), I’ve got out more and more as I live near the Lake District. It is probably the most awesome camping spot of the UK.
The scenery is amazing and there is no way to get closer to it than to camp.
Also, I’m festival crazy as well.
What motivated you to build such an awesome product?
Jake: Very simply.
I couldn’t find a tent that suited my needs in the market. They were either too complicated or too flimsy. They didn’t even solve any of my problems like losing charge on my phone, being too bright in the morning etc.
So I designed my own.
