PROBLEM

Convenience stores are Stuck in the past

Did you know that the convenience store industry has the potential to make $654 billion (1) in sales each year? That's a crazy amount of money! However, there are a few problems that are holding the industry back from reaching its full potential. Our team is working hard to tackle these issues and become the go-to solution for business owners and entrepreneurs.

problems that we fixed
High costs drag down profits
Between soaring real estate prices, construction, staffing, and overhead expenses, store owners face an uphill battle to turn a profit. These costs also make relocation and expansion difficult.
The labor shortage slows hiring
Finding people to staff stores, especially for 24/7 stores, is getting harder and harder. Many tasks like restocking and inventory are labor intensive, which require more employees and drive up costs.
Shoplifting costs retailers $100B(3)
Shoplifting and robberies are a constant threat for store owners. Losing money to theft is especially burdensome when margins are tight. And the risk of crime is a threat to employees and customers alike.

$44.8M in potential revenue lined up

The market is demanding our solution. We received deliver our for our smart stores after opening this deal to the public. That represents $44.8M in potential revenue. We aim to deliver our first Smart Stores in Q4 2024.

BUSINESS MODEL

3 Ways We Make Money

We have three primary channels for making money through our business model. We plan to sell our stores globally, offering financing and revenue-sharing options. We’ll also earn money by selling products directly to our stores and owners will pay us a subscription fee to maintain the stores and software. Plus we can license our technology to other businesses.

Why invest in startups?

Regulation CF allows investors to invest in startups and early-growth companies. This is different from helping a company raise money on Kickstarter; with Regulation CF Offerings, you aren’t buying products or merchandise - you are buying a piece of a company and helping it grow.

How much can I invest?

To calculate your net worth, just add up all of your assets and subtract all of your liabilities (excluding the value of the person’s primary residence). The resulting sum is your net worth.

What are the tax implications of an equity crowdfunding investment?

We cannot give tax advice, and we encourage you to talk with your accountant or tax advisor before making an investment.

Who can invest in a Regulation CF Offering?

Individuals over 18 years of age can invest.

What do I need to know about early-stage investing? Are these investments risky?

There will always be some risk involved when investing in a startup or small business. And the earlier you get in the more risk that is usually present. If a young company goes out of business, your ownership interest could lose all value. You may have limited voting power to direct the company due to dilution over time.  You may also have to wait about five to seven years (if ever) for an exit via acquisition, IPO, etc. Because early-stage companies are still in the process of perfecting their products, services, and business model, nothing is guaranteed. That’s why startups should only be part of a more balanced, overall investment portfolio.

When will I get my investment back?

VenHub is a privately held company, and its shares are not traded on a public stock exchange. As a result, the shares cannot be easily traded or sold. As an investor in a private company, you typically receive a return on your investment under the following two scenarios: The company gets acquired by another company. The company goes public (makes an initial public offering on the NASDAQ, NYSE, or another exchange). In those instances, you receive your pro-rata share of the distributions that occur, in the case of acquisition, or you can sell your shares on the exchange. It can take 5-7 years (or longer) to see a distribution or trading, as it takes years to build companies. In many cases, there will not be any return as a result of business failure. Investments in private placements and start-up investments in particular are speculative and involve a high degree of risk, and those investors who cannot afford to lose their entire investment should not invest in start-ups. Companies seeking startup investments tend to be in earlier stages of development, and their business model, products and services may not yet be fully developed, operational or tested in the public marketplace. There is no guarantee that the stated valuation and other terms are accurate or in agreement with the market or industry valuations. Additionally, investors on Regulation CF offerings will receive securities that are subject to holding period requirements. The most sensible investment strategy for start-up investing may include a balanced portfolio of different start-ups. Start-ups should only be part of your overall investment portfolio. Investments in startups are highly illiquid and those investors who cannot hold an investment for the long term (at least 5-7 years) should not invest.

Can I sell my shares?

Shares sold via Regulation Crowdfunding offerings have a one-year lockup period before those shares can be sold under certain conditions.

Exceptions to limitations on selling shares during the one-year lockup period:

In the event of death, divorce, or similar circumstance, shares can be transferred to:

  • The company that issued the securities
  • An accredited investor
  • A family member (child, stepchild, grandchild, parent, stepparent, grandparent, spouse or equivalent, sibling, mother-in-law, father-in-law, son-in-law, daughter-in-law, brother-in-law, or sister-in-law, including adoptive relationships)
What happens if a company does not reach their funding target?

If a company does not reach their minimum funding target, all funds will be returned to the investors after the close of the offering.

How can I learn more about a company's offering?

All available disclosure information can be found on the offering pages for our Regulation Crowdfunding offering.

How do I keep up with how the company is doing?

At a minimum, the company will be filing with the SEC and posting on it’s website an annual report, along with certified financial statements.  Those should be available 120 days after the fiscal year end.  If the company meets a reporting exception, or eventually has to file more reported information to the SEC, the reporting described above may end. If these reports end, you may not continually have current financial information about the company.

What relationship does the company have with Issuance Express?

Once an offering ends, the company may continue its relationship with Issuance Express (Jumpstart Micro Inc. d.b.a. Issuance Express) for additional offerings in the future. Issuance Express's affiliates may also provide ongoing services to the company. There is no guarantee any services will continue after the offering ends.

2023 - 2024 © VenHub

Copyright © 2023 - 2024 Issuance Express. All rights reserved.

Securities offered under Regulation Crowdfunding under the Securities Act of 1933 are offered by Jumpstart Micro, Inc, d.b.a Issuance Express, a Funding Portal registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission and a member of FINRA. Under the regulation, Issuance Express acts as an Intermediary platform for Issuers (companies selling securities in compliance with the rules) and Investors (individuals purchasing services offered by Issuers). Issuance Express does not provide investment advice or make any investment recommendations to any persons, ever, and at no time does Issuance Express come into possession of Investor funds transferred directly to a bank escrow account. Issuers and Investors should carefully read our Disclosures, Educational Materials, and our site Privacy Policy and Terms of Use before using the Issuance Express funding portal.

Investors should weigh the risk of making investments, which includes the potential loss of your investment and the illiquid nature of non-public shares.

Since launching our previous Regulation Crowdfunding offering, the Company has received over 300 non-binding pre-orders from potential customers. Those potential customers have not made any commitments to purchase a VenHub, and there is no guarantee we will receive any sales from them. However, we are excited by the expressed interest in the product represented by the non-binding pre-orders. The Company has also received considerable interest in its product from outside of the United States. Before the Company would be able to develop this interest into revenue sources, it would establish joint venues or other
partnerships to allow for non-US production of VenHub units.
