Torch Hits the Small Screen - 9/29/14

The past few months have been very exciting, yet busy. For those of you who missed us at any of the number of events, here's a re-cap of the best.

We visited the UK to film an episode of the Dragons' Den recently. For those of you in the US, this is the original UK version of the Sharks' Tank. Due to our UK business partner we were eligible for the show and decided to go for it. We were fortunate to be chosen and here's our pitch which includes the founder of Torch Apparel, Nathan Wills and the President of Torch Europe, Hugh Roper. We won't tell you the outcome, you'll just have to watch and see.

Only two weeks after appearing on the Den, we were off to Las Vegas for Interbike 2014. For those who aren't familiar, Interbike is the premier bicycle industry show for North America. We last appeared in 2012 and were fortunate to win the "Gear of the Show Award" from Outside Magazine. This year, however, we shared a booth with four other great bicycle start-up companies including Revolights, Bikespike, Siva Cycle and  Bike Index. These guys were great and almost all of us started on Kickstarter so it was fun to collaborate with like minded people. Thanks to all of you who made it out for Consumer Day. It was great to meet more of our Torch bearers and get your feedback on the very first helmet.

 

We have more exciting details coming soon so check back for more soon.
