Jason Giddings
Founder/CEO/Director/Chairman of the Board

Jason Giddings is Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Giddings Product Development, Inteliscope LLC. An aerospace engineer and a lifelong entrepreneur and inventor, Jason observed that many smaller custom product-based businesses could not afford to build up their own product development teams capable of professional-level industrial design. As a result, he founded Giddings Product Development in 2005. In 2007, services were expanded to include production tooling and manufacturing. In 2010, capabilities were further increased by the addition of printed circuit board design as well as software and firmware development. In 2013, he formed Inteliscope LLC, in an endeavor to create and manufacture a smartphone mount that turns your iPhone or Android into a low cost thermal scope for rifles and archery. Jason has several patents and has designed hundreds of products that are currently being sold in every corner of the world.

ALL UPDATES

Great Big Day at Rhino Hide (read through – it’s exciting)

Today we signed a new heavy hitter to the Rhino Hide advisory team! We already have some truly talented folks with us, but we have always had a gap regarding chemical product development. Over the last year we have relied on an hourly chemist. He is a polyurethane chemist but some of the advanced product development we have been working on has been outside his normal scope of work and a bit of a stretch for him.

 

Today we signed Senior Application Development Engineer, Alan Pagni to our team. Pagni is a true scientist and an expert in the field of polyurethane product development. He comes highly recommended from both our manufacturing partners and our supply chain advisors.

 

Pagni has a Master’s of Science degree with a focus on polymer-science and characterization, plus he has both published and patented work.

 

Like every other member of our team, Alan came on board without any immediate promise of financial compensation. He joined us with a driving passion for our mission and a small amount of equity in the company. When our whole staff is working entirely for equity, I think it speaks volumes with regard to the company potential!

Big Milestone Achieved!

Today I started assembly on the first of our mixing machines! (Pictures below) These machines will be used by our certified installers to automatically mix and fill the wall cavities with Rhino Hide bulletproof wall filler. Each machine consists of two high-power computer-controlled servo motors and two specialized flexible-vane-pumps plus a myriad of other parts to make them work together. Each of the two servo/pump "sides", precisely meters and pumps up to 5 gallons per minute of either part “A” or part “B" and then blends them in the mixing element at the end of the dual hose for a total maximum flow of 10 gallons per minute. One of these machines can fill a standard wall section in 3 lifts, in about 1 minute each.

 

If you have been following this campaign for a while you probably saw at least a couple other design iterations. The first design was assembled in a 4-wheeled off-the-shelf cart. It was determined that the cart was cumbersome and actually cost more to purchase than building a custom cart specific to our needs. The second design was smaller and didn’t have space to store hoses and other needed accessories, plus it wasn’t balanced well and would have been awkward to use. This final design is a bit larger and has room for all 4 hoses, two mixing guns, electrical cord, and even storage caps and accessories. Plus it is balanced just right and can easily be moved around the work-site even though it is extremely heavy-duty. It will stand up to the extremes of any construction zone.

 

Challenge Coin and Shirts

If you have invested in the first campaign, you probably received your challenge coin or will in the next day or so. Almost a thousand of these coins went out thanks to my daughter who stuffed all the envelopes and placed postage on each one - huge job! The shirts took a bit longer because it took extra time to gather all the size and color info but they have been ordered and will be shipped soon after the printing is done.

 

Light at the End of the Tunnel

We are starting to be able to see the finish line - the start of sales. It has taken us longer than expected and cost more than projected but rest assured we are getting closer. I am estimating we will need between $100K and $150K more investment to complete the final steps so we can get to sales. I am hoping we can get there within about 6 months, depending on how fast we can raise the capital.

 

Next Update

We are in talks with a new team member that will add a tremendous value to our company. I’ll tell you all about it when he decides to sign on.

 

As always: stay tuned, there are exciting things coming!

 

Happy New Year!

12.14.19

1000 Coins and a Dog

Ever wonder what 1000 coins and a dog look like?

 

The coins arrived while I was in Detroit - Yay! Watson, our dog, snuck into the picture when I wasn’t looking. These will go out before Christmas! I'll send out another update once they are in the mail.


12.12.19

Holiday Bonus!

Right now is a great time to invest in Rhino Hide! StartEngine is offering a 10% Holiday Bonus! This means everyone gets to enjoy the 10% owners bonus. 

Christmas is Coming – If you’re anything like me, you probably have some people on your list that have everything - Getting young people a stake in Rhino Hide for Christmas is a way to get them interested in investing, which can have a huge positive impact on the rest of their lives.

First Certified Installer projecting sales of $18M per year!

Be sure to read to the end - this is probably the most important update you will read!

 

It’s been far too long since I sent out an update. I do have a pretty good excuse... we have been working our asses off. Lord knows mine could use a little trimming.

 

Over the last few months we have been working on a few major goals:

  1. Developing our Certified Installer Onboarding process
  2. Building formal agreements with Installers and measuring the sales potential with them
  3. Building our first 5 computer-controlled mixing machines to be used by our certified installers
  4. Fine-tuning the Chemistry to increase working time and improve strength
  5. Forming relationships with top-notch chemical suppliers
  6. Partnering with a company to hold Inventory for our mixing equipment and fulfill direct to our installers
  7. Working with an attorney specializing in patent protection to protect our intellectual property

 

I will be sending out updates on each of the above items, over the coming weeks, with much more detail as they become concrete.

 

For today’s update, I want to tell you about onboarding. As of this morning we have agreed on the content of a deal with our first Certified Installer. As you probably know, we have been signing up companies over the last year to be our Rhino Hide front line. Almost 200 companies from all over the US have told us they want to become Rhino Hide certified installers. There’s a ton of work to bring each one on, and we want to make sure they will be a great partner, so we are studying each one carefully to make sure they make the cut.

 

This morning, I can say the first company has completed the gauntlet and signed a Letter of Intent to Purchase $18M worth of product per year! We continue to work through these companies and will provide details as each one completes the process. We want you to realize how massive this market is. Over the next few years we plan to bring on at least 400 certified installers, at which point we expect to have sales upwards of $300M per year.

 

If you haven’t invested, I encourage you to join our effort. If you have invested, invest again. Many of you already have made multiple investments. We need to raise another $100K to get to sales. Investments will pay for tooling, web development, intellectual property and various other important milestones.

 

We are on the verge of great things! Let’s get it done!

11.19.19

Coins and Shirts

I know it’s been quite lately but I want you to know there is A TON going on. We are waiting on some big things to happen before we send out the next update… keep an eye out – it won’t be much longer. Also, I have been traveling a lot lately, to set up our supply channels for raw materials and installation equipment manufacture.

StartEngine sent me the final Cap Table which lists all the investors information, so I am now starting to fulfill shirts and coins for the last round.

Coins: If you are an investor and have not already received your coin or you made another investment you will be receiving your coin soon. I have ordered 1000 coins to satisfy all the outstanding investments. It will take a couple weeks for the coins to arrive. My daughter is putting postage on the empty envelopes now so they will be ready to go out as soon as the coins arrive.

Shirts: If you invested over $2000 you also earned one of our custom Rhino shirts. If you have not already received your shirt, you can expect to receive an email in the next few days with questions about your size, gender, color and any specifics related to the type of shirt you want. Be sure to follow the email instructions as soon as possible. If you don’t, you may lose your chance to get a shirt since I must order the shirts in bulk. Also, if you wait it will hold up the fulfilment of all the other shirts.

Back in the Saddle

It has taken a while, but I just wanted to let you all know Rhino Hide is finally back on StartEngine. Here's how the new campaign has improved...

  • We have upgraded the company from an LLC to an Inc making it better for companies who invest.
  • We have updated the perks to include higher value equity incentives – no more shirts and coins
  • We have increased the valuation to reflect the massive amount of traction we received in the first year
  • We have created a new more polished video including super-fast-frame video for ultra-slow-motion projectile studies
  • We have overhauled the entire campaign page with new content and included the pitch information investors want to see in a much cleaner layout.

HOW INVESTING WORKS

Cancel anytime before 48 hours before a rolling close or the offering end date.

WHY STARTENGINE?

REWARDSWe want you to succeed and get the most out of your money by offering rewards and memberships!
SECUREYour info is your info. We take pride in keeping it that way!
DIVERSE INVESTMENTSInvest 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.
