Business Story

Why this business was started

Having built and sold a previous e-commerce business I was motivated to start a business and a brand that combined three key pillars I am passionate about. 1. By using reusable cups we can help to reduce and promote the issue of single use plastic 2. Give back to causes and charities by donating $3 from every cup 3. Provide a reasonable profit to make the business viable.

The reason of selling this business

Prior to starting Cause Cups I was partly involved in another business venture. Over time I have become more heavily involved in that business and simply do not have the time available to dedicate to Cause Cups. Something has to give and would love to see someone else take Cause Cups and breath new life into it.

What's involved in running this business

  1. Marketing and advertising supporting B2C and B2B sales activities. 2. Maintaining Supplier relationships. 3. Continuing to evolve new designs for new charities. 4. Fulfilling orders, 5. processing orders and shipping
This business was founded: about 1 year ago
Time to run this business: approximately 6 hours per week

    Seller‘s Advice

    How to grow this business

    There is an opportunity to build the business via both B2C and B2B channels. Cause Cups has the potential to be a global brand. We have proven the model through injecting a small ad budget to gauge interest and we did one B2B deal with a Recruitment Company who purchased 500 cups and we donated $1500 to their charity of choice called 'Adopt Change'. Adopt Change focus on raising awareness for children's adoption issues.

    Skills to have

    All skills required can be learnt. What is required is a passion for giving back and to build a brand and a business that has the potential to change lives. The designs for the Cups were done by a designer using 99designs. The website was produced by an expert Shopify web designer for whom I can provide details.

    I am a father of 3 young children, English by birth I first came to Australia 20 years ago and ended up settling and becoming an Australian citizen 15 years ago. My e-commerce journey began in 2017 when I started a business focused on Home DIY. I subsequently built and then sold that business in 2019. During that first e-commerce journey the idea for Cause Cups was born as I am passionate about giving back. I began my career in Real estate in the late 80's , moved into Tech in the mid 90's, and now run a Property development company.
