Overview


We’re creating a dry-erase renaissance (we call it a “Dry-erasaissance”)


The places where we learn, work, and create are undeniably changing. M.C. Squares has reimagined productivity tools to better fit into today’s dynamic life. Simple, beautiful, and fun products to improve the way people think, express, organize, and communicate. 

  • Reusable Dry-Erase Sticky Notes
  • Smudge-Free Erasable Markers
  • Desktop Whiteboard Surfaces
  • Nesting Organizational Dry-Erase Tiles


The Problem


Technology is hijacking our brains!


People need better ways to think and communicate; they’re demanding simple products that make it easy for them to get their next genius idea out of their head and into the outside world.

The Solution


Not everything has to be hard


For the last few years, we have been hard at work developing radically simple products that are exciting to use: reusable dry-erase sticky notes (Stickies), smudge-free markers for dry-erase surfaces (Tackies), and desktop whiteboards (Surfaces), to name a few. All our product families combine to make an entire product ecosystem. 


Curing cancer, rocket science, and the tough stuff, like organizing a home.

We get it. We aren’t solving the world’s toughest problems… But our customers are! Serious problem-solving requires innovative, distraction-free ‘thinking’ tools. And we deliver.


Our traction


Revenue? I hope you’re not afraid of heights...



Making an Impact


As quickly as we’re growing, we’re mindful of our opportunities for responsible action. We are just at the beginning here, but to start:



Media Coverage Matters. Ours is superb.


We’ve clearly got the attention of media, experts and influencers. They’re featuring us in stories about business, organization, home decor, design and creativity.



The Market


*SourceSource



What we do



We make simple to understand products, but that does not mean we are a simple company. We have spent years building unique material formulations, advanced manufacturing techniques, and sophisticated customer acquisition processes. All of these elements combine together to create what we think is a truly special company poised for greatness.


Building Intellectual Property

We’ve filed 14 patents with 7 issued so far. We have published 5 trademarks and have world-wide exclusivity on the material that sets many of our products apart, “Bubble Bond”. As our “Dry-erasaissance” (you’ll be saying it soon enough) takes off, more ingenious products will follow. 




The business Model


Our foundation is customers Like You


(And... to be honest... bigger ones, too.)


We chose to launch products in a unique market, one that has incredible customer diversity. Many of our customers are everyday consumers but we also have multinational corporations and institutions placing bulk orders of our products for their employees, facilitators, and students. We don’t want to brag (yes, we do), but here are just a few:



Made By Our Team, Right Here


We make most of our own products in the USA. 


Self-manufacturing gives us some pretty special advantages:


First, we have great gross margins. That means it costs us very little to make our products compared to what we can sell them for. In fact, we make our products faster, better and more economically than most overseas office supply manufacturers. “How?” Because we don’t have tariffs to pay, shipping costs to incur, large inventory quantities to store, or long lead times to manage.


Second, making our own products also means we can launch product experiments within weeks, and for hundreds of dollars. Compare that to companies that spend months and tens-of-thousands to try out a new product line. Essentially we are “whiteboarding” our ideas by doing short-runs and testing our products in the real world. No focus groups, no costly market analysis.


Our formula for success is simple: Launch. Listen. Scale.



Our Leadership



Why whiteboarding? Our founder has a track record of starting, scaling and selling 4 successful companies. Two were to public companies. He’s won dozens of awards for design, technology, and business innovation. 


After his last exit, Anthony had a unique challenge -- create a company OUTSIDE the tech sector. Looking beyond the screen was the inspiration he needed:


         The best ideas start with the mark of a hand 

           - usually on a whiteboard.


Truth: Anthony is kind of a whiteboard nerd (Okay, he’s a GIANT whiteboard nerd). So when he enthusiastically pitched his products on Shark Tank, Kevin O’Leary lept at the opportunity.


Anthony’s super-power: finding & attracting great talent


Why Invest


Thousands of investors have already placed their bets on us because we’ve got the goods:


  • a team with a strong entrepreneurial track record
  • a company with great sales growth and media traction
  • patents, trademarks, and competitive advantages
  • amazing products, made ourselves, sold direct to consumers, at scale


We will put your investment to work with new leadership hires, expanded manufacturing capabilities and the roll-out of expertly calibrated marketing efforts. Your benefits start immediately - early access to new products, investor discounts and the experience of helping a company grow. 


You made it this far, just one more step - choose the investment tier on the right that aligns with your risk/reward appetite and let’s do this... together.

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. To learn more about Regulation Crowdfunding, click here, and for Regulation A+, click here.
