Reasons to invest



  • Huge market: The vending machine market is estimated to be a $36.5 billion industry in the U.S., and projected to grow by $9.82 billion from 2020-2025, accelerating market growth at a CAGR over 22%.

  • Patent-pending technology: Support the latest in AI cashierless retail technology. Mama Gaia builds smart fridges that use AI to detect inventory.

  • Built on data and revenue optimization: Invest in a company that is data-driven. Mama Gaia uses predictive analytics to determine consumer spending and understand what products will sell best on a given day.


Overview


Smart fridges stocked with healthy grab-and-go options 

Mama Gaia is helping local businesses retain their customers by offering a place for food sales without the need for an onsite kitchen, as building an onsite kitchen is a massive expense that can cost up to $450K. The branded vending machines are stocked with high-quality food that can easily be accessed with an app and a QR code. Mama Gaia is supporting the local food industry in Colorado while also committing to being zero waste. Any food leftover in the smart fridges are donated to local food banks.

The Problem


The demand for accessible food is increasing, especially due to the social distancing measures of COVID. We believe this trend will continue post-COVID, as people are always looking for high quality food that doesn't take a step out of their day. Consumers are seeking out contactless food delivery, and businesses are struggling to serve the growing demand for amenities. Businesses need new ways to deliver their food to consumers rather than just relying on delivery.

The Solution



Cashierless retail technology

Mama Gaia is building self-service smart fridges to bring food options directly to consumers. The fridges are currently set up in apartment complexes across the Denver metro area. Each fridge is AI-powered and app-enabled to provide consumers with easy access to high quality, grab-and-go food. 

The AI relies on image-based item recognition technology, which means that no barcodes are needed. The food is restocked daily based on predictive algorithms to improve stock selections for consumers. Businesses can sell their grab-and-go food and beverage products without employees, making food delivery an easier, more accessible process.

The Market


Vending machines are on the rise

The vending machine market in the U.S. is estimated to be a $36.5 billion industry, and projected to grow significantly over the next few years. Between 2020-2025, the market is projected to grow by $9.82 billion, accelerating market growth at a CAGR over 22%. By 2027, the global vending machines market is targeted to reach a whopping $146.6 billion. Another factor in our market is consumer convenience. Currently, 69% of out-of-home eating is spent at quick-service options.

With these factors in mind, our current target market is apartment complexes in the Denver metro area. The US currently has an estimated 2 million vending machines in operation; with $7.4 billion in vending machine market revenue, we expect to reach $3,700 per unit per year.

Our Traction


Noteworthy customers and provisional patent submitted

Our company has a fast track record of development, with clear progress every year. We went from testing the concept in May of 2018 to ideating the smart fridge technology for Mama Gaia in 2019. Two years after launching Mama Gaia, we were accepted into the Food Food Co. Accelerator Spring 2020 Cohort. By 2020 we had also submitted a Provisional Patent, built our App for iOS and Android, and had AI for our fridges built with 75 products trained and ready. We launched our Beta in March 2021 and have paying customers and daily users. 

We have a growing list of customers using our smart fridges. Additionally, we have numerous businesses interested in installations.

What We Do›


Seamless transactions through AI technology

We build high-end smart fridges that are designed with businesses and consumers in mind. The fridges are stocked with locally sourced, ready-to-go food and beverages in highly trafficked areas such as apartment complexes and universities. Each fridge is built using AI technology to allow for quick transactions and intelligent inventory management. 

Customers download the Mama Gaia user app where they can view fridge inventory, scan the item QR code, and unlock the fridges to grab their items with minimal contact. Once users grab their items from the fridge, they will receive an itemized receipt in their email address and a notification on the app confirming their purchase. The full end-to-end transaction can take as little as 10 seconds.

The app allows customers to review past purchases and view fridges by location. On the backend, admins can track sales data against metrics to determine how to manage fridge inventory. Additionally, vendors have their own interface where they can track their unique sales data and receive customer feedback to see how their food and beverage products are selling.

The Business Model


Sales, advertising, and subscriptions

We currently have three sources of revenue: food sales, vendor advertising, and business subscriptions. Our projected annual revenue per fridge is $9,053, with the development cost per fridge at $1,500 per fridge, and repair and maintenance at $100 per fridge per month. On the Mama Gaia app, we charge $1.00 per ad. Our Retail-as-a-Service monthly subscription fee is $200 per month. Our initial rollout is 100 smart fridges. Our plan is to add 15 new fridges per month in the first three years, 30 fridges per month in the fourth year, and 60 fridges per month in the fifth year.

FUTURE OPPortunity


Franchise model to scale nationwide

In Phase 2 of our business model, we see an opportunity for meal kit companies nationwide to franchise our technology. We would sell or lease meal kit companies or other retailers, large or small, our smart fridges branded with our logo to raise nationwide brand awareness. Additionally, we can adapt our technology to different environments such as mini fridges or larger controlled, cashier-less environments.

Once we reach our company goals, we plan to embark upon our exit strategy and sell Mama Gaia. We see this as a great opportunity for retailers, technology companies, and players in the smart fridge space.

How We Are Different


Tech-focused and niche-driven

While there are other smart fridges on the market, we cater towards a niche customer segment. We provide healthy grab-and-go food and drink options to consumers that care about healthy eating and supporting local. We work directly with local businesses and donate any leftovers to local food banks to keep supporting our communities.

Our direct competitors are Byte, Farmer’s Fridge, LeanBox, and ChowBotics, and our indirect competition is the delivery service industry. What sets us apart at Mama Gaia is that we are a tech company, not a food company. Our platform is designed for high customer retention through incentive practices.  We use predictive algorithms and revenue optimization to understand what will sell best in each of our fridges, and provide our food partners with the same robust analytics to improve their sales as well. As we scale, we’ll focus on tech-enabled cashierless retail, which will allow our food competitors to become our enterprise partners.

The Vision


Supporting local businesses and scaling up

Being mission-driven, a big part of our company is to source locally. We want to help rebuild our food system by putting local, small businesses at the forefront of the food industry again. Our current food system supply chain is broken – shelves were empty at the beginning of COVID as stores couldn’t stock food fast enough to meet consumer demand. By building a business model around local food, we are able to shorten the supply chain from farm to fork. This will help save emissions, produce less waste, provide more nutritional food, and financially support local communities.

On a financial level, our goal is to scale the businesses aggressively in the Denver/Boulder Colorado area in the next year, and begin franchising nationwide to large and small food companies who want to expand their reach. Our second phase in late 2021 will be to market our smart fridges to offices, breweries, and gyms. 


Next, we plan to use a franchise model to scale nationwide in 2022.


We will use the data and profit margins we collect to identify which cities we want to grow our investments. We see this expansion growing rapidly, with the potential to manage tens of thousands of franchised smart fridges across the country by 2025.

Mama Gaia Featured in Business Insider!

This Female Founder is Quietly Building Healthy Food Vending Machines of The Future - Here's How


DENVER, CO / ACCESSWIRE / October 1, 2021 / Ever fallen off a diet wagon with a ‘snack-cident' that spiralled out of control? You're doing all the right things - eating well, taking walks, and, suddenly, you start craving a bite while out walking or working late. You spot a vending machine, and things go downhill from there.

But what if the vending machines along your path only stocked healthy food and snacks? What if you could actually ‘see' the contents of each vending machine in advance? Experts suggest that one way to make healthy eating a sustainable habit is to make healthy food options readily available - and that's what Mama Gaia is on a mission to achieve, through clever technology.

AI meets healthy food meets local producers

Founded by Sarah Lynch in 2018, Mama Gaia is an innovative startup that builds and deploys smart, temperature-controlled vending machines stocked with healthy food to go. But that's not all. Beyond easing access to healthy food, Mama Gaia offers end-users visibility into its vending machines through its proprietary patent-pending technology.

For local food producers, this is good news because it offers direct access to consumers plus predictive AI-powered insights - without expensive middlemen. Local businesses can save the costs (and headache!) of managing onsite kitchens while providing their staff with fresh healthy meals on-demand. In addition, businesses in high footfall areas can earn a passive income with sales on auto-pilot while leveraging the power of AI for automated customer engagement.



Built for easy access to healthy, locally sourced food, Mama Gaia offers the perfect technology-optimized middle ground between a growing demand for healthier options and an excellent earning potential.

Vending machines are evolving

Vending machines have come a long way from the days of the 1940s "Speedy Weeny" hotdog vending machines. Fast forward a few decades, and 56% of the 4.6 million vending machines that exist in the USA primarily dispense food and snacks of poor nutritional value. This number skyrockets to as high as 85% for vending machines located in American schools.

On the other hand, research also shows that 94% of Americans snack daily, with 33% of these opting for healthier options. However, the limited availability of healthier food options exposes a gap in the market between the desire to eat healthily, and the availability of healthy food options. This is not an insurmountable gap as it has been proven that increasing the availability of healthier options is an effective strategy for increasing sales.

To address these gaps in the market, Mama Gaia offers the perfect solution for more visible healthy food options that directly benefit local communities:

  • Businesses are empowered with a smart, effective platform for offering fresh meals and snacks to employees without an onsite kitchen.
  • Small, independent food producers can access a level playing field to present, and optimize their sales through AI-powered insights.
  • End-consumers enjoy streamlined availability of healthier convenient food options with motivational prompts such as push notifications and weekly discounts.

The birth of Mama Gaia

"I just loved the concept of supporting local food systems in a super convenient way," Sarah said when asked how she came up with the idea.

So when the opportunity presented itself in the form of 3 temperature-controlled vending kiosks seeking a new owner, she jumped right in - especially as two of the units already enjoyed a steady influx of customers. As an English/Psychology major with no idea what a pitch deck was in the beginning, Sarah's resilience drove her to work around the clock, learning the intricacies of marketing, tech, branding and a million others at lightning speed.

The journey was a difficult one, with some key lows. "I broke a fridge once, trying to move it myself", Sarah remembers. "It toppled over in the middle of a busy intersection, and the glass door shattered all over the street". Luckily, her persistence paid off with high end-user return rates, as customers loved the units and kept coming back.

Sarah hired a technical co-founder to build a proprietary platform complete with an app and inventory dashboard - all without any VC capital. With the app, customers were not just able to find their closest units, but they could also remotely scan the contents of each unit. Once at the unit, a scan of the QR code unlocks the door, allowing the customer access to whatever they want with a retrospective charge for only the items taken. The unit's inventory is automatically tracked and updated using AI-powered vision, with stock levels reported on the administrator's inventory dashboard.


Funding the future of healthy vending machines

In the future, Sarah wants to see Mama Gaia's proprietary technology adopted nationwide to help increase the availability of healthy food in public spaces. In 2022, the company aims to roll out 100 vending fridge units across the United States, to help local food producers get their products in front of consumers more effectively.

Mama Gaia's mission has already enjoyed significant success with almost 50% of their 2022 target signed up to the waitlist within the first 4 months. The soaring demand for its franchise applications also validates the notion that the convenience food industry is ripe for disruption. Mama Gaia offers the perfect solution that intersects across the vending machine industry worth $8.6 billion (in 2021) and the meal kit industry worth $11.5 billion over the same period.

Mama Gaia is currently scaling its technology to make vending units available to universities, hospitals, residential communities, and offices throughout the United States. Using data and profits from the company's initial controlled expansion in Los Angeles, CA, Sarah plans to launch a franchised nationwide rollout that deploys tens of thousands of units across the country that delivers the ultimate goal of making healthy food options convenient.

Traction/Waitlist Update 9/17/21

(Last Update 8/18)


Signed B2B MOU’s: 12 (+4)

B2B MOU’s in Pipeline: 23 (+1)

Franchisee Applications: 35 (+5)


What is an MOU? A Memorandum of Understanding is a B2B contract expressing intent to buy fridges and use the Mama Gaia platform. Our B2B partners range from food companies to distributors to real estate groups. We use MOU’s as a first step to create a partnership with an established company.


Franchisee applications are filled out by individuals who want to buy fridges, use the platform, and use the Mama Gaia brand.


Considering one fridge costs $6500 to buy, $500/mo to lease, and the software works as a function of sales volume (15% of sales at $50/day avg = $2700), we can value each 1-yr contract at $9200, if the company only purchases one fridge.


**Note: MOU's and Franchisee Apps are how we quantify our waitlist.

DIVERSE INVESTMENTS

Invest in over 200 start-ups and collectibles!

With Regulation A+, a non-accredited investor can only invest a maximum of 10% of their annual income or 10% of their net worth per year, whichever is greater. There are no restrictions for accredited investors.

With Regulation Crowdfunding, non-accredited investors with an annual income or net worth less than $124,000, are limited to invest a maximum of 5% of the greater of those two amounts. For those with an annual income and net worth greater than $124,000, he/she is limited to investing 10% of the greater of the two amounts.

At the close of an offering, all investors whose funds have “cleared” by this time will be included in the disbursement. At this time, each investor will receive an email from StartEngine with their Countersigned Subscription Agreement, which will serve as their proof of purchase moving forward.

Please keep in mind that a company can conduct a series of “closes” or withdrawals of funds throughout the duration of the campaign. If you are included in that withdrawal period, you will be emailed your countersigned subscription agreement and proof of purchase immediately following that withdrawal.

StartEngine assists companies in raising capital, and once the offering is closed, we are no longer involved with whether the company chooses to list shares on a secondary market, or what occurs thereafter. Therefore, StartEngine has no control or insight into your investment after the close of the live offering. In addition, we are not permitted to provide financial advice. You may want to contact a financial professional to discuss possible investment outcomes.

For Regulation Crowdfunding, investors are able to cancel their investment at any point throughout the campaign up until 48 hours before the closing of the offering. Note: If the company does a rolling close, they will post an update to their current investors, giving them the opportunity to cancel during this timeframe. If you do not cancel within this 5-day timeframe, your funds will be invested in the company, and you will no longer be able to cancel the investment. If your funds show as ‘Invested’ on your account dashboard, your investment can no longer be canceled.

For Regulation A+, StartEngine allows for a four-hour cancelation period. Once the four-hour window has passed, it is up to each company to set their own cancelation policy. You may find the company’s cancelation policy in the company’s offering circular.

Once your investment is canceled, there is a 10-day clearing period (from the date your investment was submitted). After your funds have cleared the bank, you will receive your refund within 10 business days.

Refunds that are made through ACH payments can take up to 10 business days to clear. Unfortunately, we are at the mercy of the bank, but we will do everything we can to get you your refund as soon as possible. However, every investment needs to go through the clearing process in order to get sent back to the account associated with the investment.

Both Title III (Regulation Crowdfunding) and Title IV (Reg A+) help entrepreneurs crowdfund capital investments from unaccredited and accredited investors. The differences between these regulations are related to the investor limitations, the differing amounts of money companies are permitted to raise, and differing disclosure and filing requirements.
