A Unique Condom that Men Want to Wear

Invest in Galactic Cap

The condom is one of the most-used devices to prevent pregnancy and the transmission of many STDs, according to SexEd Library. Very little has changed in its overall design for centuries. We believe the Galactic Cap will change people's understanding of the traditional condom and society's use of condoms forever.


We've designed, developed and patented a new take on the condom. It fits safely and securely on the head of the penis, leaving the coronal ridge and shaft exposed for more skin-to-skin contact, more sexual pleasure, and ultimately more condom usage. Already, we've raised over $100,000 on IndieGoGo from men and women who've been waiting for a different solution in bed.


Only 20% of men in developed countries wear condoms. Why? Because condoms are uncomfortable and get in the way of a full sexual experience. But with our new design, we are confident that percentage will change. 


According to Global Industry Analysts, 27 billion condoms are sold every year. In our first three years of production, we aim to acquire 5% of the global condom market (1.35 billion units sold). We believe that by increasing condom usage (by increasing pleasure), we can tackle many issues such as unplanned pregnancy, overpopulation, and HIV. 


Ultimately, our goal is to change how people perceive condoms and to heighten sexual awareness and safety!

"The Galactic Cap will do for condoms what the Mac did for the computer and what the iPhone did for the telephone. It is a quantum leap forward for better sex."

John Novaria, Pricilla, Novaria Communication

Our Story

After a good friend contracted HIV, I thought how could this happen? I was both shocked and worried as he was like a brother to me. Like many people, he had unprotected sex because he always found condoms to be uncomfortable.


This made me realize that there had to be a better condom design! And so our story began...


Through numerous iterations, we have designed, developed and patented a revolutionary new condom called the Galactic Cap. It is the world’s first condom that fits safely and securely on the head of the penis. Since inception, we have raised $100k on Indiegogo and refined our design.

Today, the Galactic Cap has partnered with California State University, Long Beach Engineering Department for research and testing of the product.


We believe that the Galactic Cap will shake up the condom industry and make people WANT to wear a condom.  


Charles Powell, CEO and Founder

A Need 

The Galactic Cap provides a solution to lack of contraceptive usage. According to the Centers for Disease Control, a traditional condom has a failure rate of 15-18%. By only covering the head of the penis, the revolutionary Galactic Cap increases sensitivity and pleasure, while also acting as a pregnancy prevention method by providing a secure reservoir to trap semen. 


In the United States

  • According to the Center for Disease Control, in 2006, 49% of pregnancies were unintended.
  • The CDC states that, among women aged 19 years and younger, more than 4 out of 5 pregnancies were unintended. 

Worldwide

  • According to the New York Times, condom usage tops out at 5% 

We believe the Galactic Cap will bring pleasure back into sex in a safe method.

Our Growth

Since inception, Powell Development Group, Inc. has... 


  • Raised over $100k on Indiegogo in 2014.
  • Received worldwide media coverage and over 1-million views on video in three days.
  • Redesigned the Galactic Cap in 2015 and produced a prototype that is now the highest-rated condom in the world based on anonymous, independent surveys.
  • Partnered with the California State University, Long Beach Engineering Department, to research, develop and test the Galactic Cap, as well as to apply for National Institute of Health (NIH) and National Science Foundation (NSF) grants.
  • Began selling prototype Galactic Caps on its own website with no marketing at $15-25 per condom and sold out numerous times. 

Making Something Unique

How Does It Work?

The Galactic Cap has a very simple application and removal process. The condom is made up of polyurethane film (which is already used in condoms), and has an adhesive that has been pre-approved by the FDA for use on skin. It fits solely on the head of the penis, increasing sensitivity during sex.

Solving Traditional Problems

The Galactic Cap provides a solution to three traditional condom issues:


  1.  Lack of sensitivity
  2.  Covers the coronal ridge & shaft
  3.  Contraceptive failure rate of 15 - 18%


Our unique patent-pending design makes the Galactic Cap the most innovative condom in centuries

Unique Features and Benefits

  • Polyurethane film, which is already used in condoms
  • Adhesive pre-approved by the FDA for use on skin
  • Patent-pending
  • Covers the tip of the penis, providing greater pleasure in use
  • Prevents unplanned pregnancies
  • Simple, easy-to-use design
  • Watertight seal

Global Condom Market Statistics

Sources: NY Times "Getting Men to Want to Use Condoms" June 24, 2013 & “Condoms: A Global Strategic Business Report” by Market-research firm Global Industry Analysts




Globally, only 5% of men use a condom. In developed nations, condom usage peaks at only 20%. 


This means that at least 80% of men in the world are not using any protection!


The Galactic Cap gives men a reason to use a condom, as we believe it delivers vastly more sexual pleasure than a traditional condom. Moreover, if the Galactic Cap were to take just 5% of the condom market, it would be selling over a billion units annually.



Condom Use Worldwide

According to BusinessWire.com, the worldwide condom market will reach approximately $9.6 billion USD, with a compound annual growth rate of more than 8.2% until 2021. The sales volume of male condoms may grow at a compound annual growth rate of 9.1% over the period 2015-2021.


The global condom-manufacturing industry has seen a dramatic shift in the consumption and sale of condoms made from different materials. The continuous innovations in both male- and female-type condoms is attracting more consumers, hence sales and revenue have been increasing as well. 


We believe the Galactic Cap is the most dramatic change in basic condom design in over 400 years. 

Our Mission

The mission of the Galactic Cap is to increase condom usage worldwide with a product that couples will WANT to wear. Through this, we aim to lower the number of unplanned pregnancies, as well as reduce the likelihood of STDs and HIV. 

Extensive Quality and Security Testing

The Galactic Cap partnered with the California State University, Long Beach Engineering Department, to research, develop and test the Galactic Cap. Adhesion and pressure testing exceeded normal requirements by ten fold. The University has applied for National Institute of Health (NIH) and National Science Foundation (NSF) grants.

Next Steps and Milestones

Clinical Trials

Since regulatory approval for the FDA is very expensive and time consuming, our plan going forward is to obtain regulatory approval with a CE Mark (the European equivalent of the FDA). This process will entail human clinical trials of some 100-150 couples. It will run for approximately 6-9 months, and include the appropriate documentation with an independent review board (IRB). The associated cost with obtaining the CE mark is $500,000. Since the Galactic Cap is made with polyurethane, which is already used in condoms and the adhesive has been pre-approved by the FDA for use on skin, we don’t foresee problems obtaining the appropriate regulatory approval.


European Market Opportunity

With a CE Mark, we can begin selling in the European Union. The EU has great potential since it has a larger population than the United States. Additionally, we feel that the CE Mark will greatly help us get into other large markets in the rest of the world. 



FDA Approval

Once we are generating revenue from our World Markets, we can return to the US and obtain regulatory approval with the FDA. The approximate time frame and cost projected for FDA approval is 2 to 3 years and $2,000,000.

What Is Our Exit Strategy?

Our planned exit strategy is two fold: Once we have regulatory approval, we will begin large scale production, lower our prices, amass hefty sales volume and market share. After we meet these goals, we expect to be offered a buy out from one of our two main competitors (Trojan or Durex). If this doesn't materialize or the offer is not sufficient, we will forge ahead with our business plan and perform a reverse IPO and begin selling shares of the company on the open market.

Is The Galactic Cap Safe?

The Galactic Cap is solely a pregnancy prevention product, and is primarily designed as condom for couples. We cannot guarantee that it prevents STDs and HIV as it does not cover the full penis. However, we feel that this revolutionary technology will help reduce three of the world’s most difficult problems: unplanned pregnancy, over-population, and help prevent STD/HIV infection.


The fact is traditional condoms do a poor job of preventing pregnancy, STD’s and HIV. Not because they don’t work but because most men don’t wear them. Our research indicates 96% of all men and women dislike traditional condoms largely because they reduce sensitivity during intercourse.


We found that only 5% of the men in the world wear a condom. In developed nations, like the United States, Europe and Japan, condom usage peaks at only 20%. It stands to reason then that at least 80% of men anywhere in the world are not using ANY protection.


This is a huge problem because over the years HIV/AIDS has killed over 30 million people. On top of that, 34 million people currently have the HIV virus worldwide, and every year 3 million more people are newly infected. Obviously, traditional condoms alone are not solving the problem. To this end, we have designed a glans sheath that we feel will increase condom usage.


Since healthy skin is a barrier to infection, the Galactic Cap may help reduce the likelihood of STDs and HIV if a man doesn’t have a sore or abrasion on his penis. Additionally, the Galactic Cap traps semen which can transmit the HIV virus. That and the increased use of condoms may bode well for the reduction of these diseases.



What Do Our Customers Say?

Watch what people are saying about the Galactic Cap!

We feel that we have the finest condom in the world based on independent, anonymous surveys with our customers.  Here are some of their remarks:


“Holy sh*t, these things are amazing,”

“It was Epic.  I’m ordering another 10.”

"Best condom I've used yet."

“Thrilling.”

“It was the finest condom experience I ever had.”

"I would say it's the closest thing to nothing but skin I've found."

“Easy to apply!"

“I ordered a ten pack. I've used 5 so far. Your condom is batting 5 for 5 no leaks!"

"My wife reported that she thought they were the best condom we have ever used!"

CONSUMER AWARENESS & MARKETING

Consumer Awareness

We ran a successful Indiegogo Crowdfunding campaign in 2014 for the Galactic Cap. In a little over 30 days, we raised over $100,000 from supporters in 26 countries around the world. Along the way, we generated lots of buzz. In three days, our video had over a million views! Besides the initial article in the LA weekly, we were written up in the Huffington Post, New York Daily News, UK Daily Mail, Cosmopolitan, Glamour, Askmen, Tech Crunch, DailyBuzz, Gizmodo-India, and translated into German, French and Spanish, We were interviewed on SiriusXM radio and even took some good-natured ribbing on Comedy Central. The upshot of all of this media attention has given our revolutionary, new product a great deal of consumer awareness which continues today. By the way, we used the Indiegogo funds to re-design the Galactic Cap so that it is now the finest condom in the world based on independent anonymous surveys with our customers.

Marketing

2016 sales figures have gone up tremendously as we now have the finest condom in the world based on independent, anonymous surveys with our customers. Last year's sales figures went up 5 times from the previous year. 2016 total sales were $25K, which is not earth shattering. But this was achieved with a very high price of $15 - $25 per condom (because it's an expensive prototype to make) and absolutely no advertising. However, by the end of 2018, we plan to begin large scale production, lower the price to $2.50 - $3.50 per condom, obtain CE Mark approval, and commence a worldwide marketing campaign. When this happens, the $27 billion dollar condom market is in for a tremendous shakeup, given the fact that most people dislike current traditional condoms.

Want More Pleasure in Your Sex Life?

10 days ago

Dear Cappers,

Are you dissatisfied with traditional condoms? Would you like to have more pleasure in your sex life, more control over your contraception, and even have more men using protection? 

Well, there's a new condom that men WANT to wear instead of have to wear: It's called the Galactic Cap. The thing that makes it so unique is that it fits safely and securely on the head of the penis. This revolutionary condom leaves the coronal ridge and shaft exposed for more skin to skin contact, more sexual pleasure, and ultimately more condom usage around the world.

The Galactic Cap feels fantastic, traps fluid in an airtight reservoir, and is the finest, most pleasurable condom in the world based on independent, anonymous surveys with our customers. 

However, without your support, it will not become widely available. It's a simple, three step process. 1) Conduct a clinical trial; 2) Obtain regulatory approval; and 3) Launch the Galactic Cap around the world, creating a new sexual revolution.

You can make it happen. Invest now:

California Condom Gold Rush

17 days ago

Dear Cappers,

When you think of value, you naturally think of gold. Today, the price of gold is $1,206 per ounce. But with gold, you have to find it, chip it out of rock, test it, mine it and refine it. 

However, the Galactic Cap is California condom gold. You don't have to find it, mine it, melt it, or refine it. It's here today, and it's  ready to go. We have field tested it with our customers for over two years, and they rave about it.

But, it's not only a terrific investment. It will help reduce 3 of the world's toughest problems: unplanned pregnancy, overpopulation, and STD/HIV infection. 

That’s why we need the Galactic Cap. It’s a condom that men WANT to wear, instead of have to wear. Ultimately, the Galactic Cap will translate into more condom usage around the world. That market is 27 billion sold every year.

Help us raise the funds to launch the Galactic Cap worldwide. Support the Galactic Cap now!

39 Million Reasons to Support the Galactic Cap

about 1 month ago

Dear Cappers,

39 Million!  That’s how many people have died from AIDS over the years.  Think that’s bad?  There’s more: 37 million are currently living with HIV worldwide.

The problem:  Traditional condoms do a poor job of preventing the spread of sexually transmitted diseases and unplanned pregnancy; not because they don’t work, but because most men don’t wear them.

Only 5% of the men in the world wear a condom. In developed nations like the United States, Europe and Japan, consistent condom usage peaks at only 20%. So it stands to reason that at least 80% of men anywhere in the world are not using any protection.

That’s why we need the Galactic Cap.  It’s a condom that men WANT to wear, instead of have to wear.  The thing that makes it so unique is that it fits safely and securely on the head of the penis, leaving the coronal ridge and shaft exposed for more skin-to-skin contact and more sexual pleasure. Ultimately, the Galactic Cap will translate into more condom usage around the world.

Why Male Contraception?

about 2 months ago


Dear Cappers,

Here is the data:  The world’s population exceeds seven billion, is increasing by 80 million yearly and will likely reach 9-10 billion by 2050. Population growth is a leading cause of environmental degradation and human suffering from poverty and hunger. Much of this population growth is unintended. In 2008, 41% of all pregnancies worldwide were unplanned, and 20% of all pregnancies ended in abortion, leading to 47,000 maternal deaths from unsafe abortions. In the United States, the unintended pregnancy rate is 48%, and 18% of all pregnancies end in abortion, accounting for 1.1 million abortions annually.

In short, the Galactic Cap will reduce five of the world’s toughest problems: unplanned pregnancy, abortion, maternal deaths, overpopulation and STD/HIV infection.

You don’t believe it?  No problem.  Let’s test it with a simple clinical trial from Essential Access Healthcare.  Total cost: $150K.

Ship of Gold

about 2 months ago


Dear Cappers,

Ship of Gold was the true story of how Tommy Thompson went down deeper than the US Navy had ever gone to recover a ship that sunk in a hurricane off the coast of North Carolina. It had so much gold on it that the United States went into a depression after the tragic event. Thompson persevered for several years before finally finding the ship in 8,000 feet of water and bringing the gold to the surface in mint condition. It was estimated to be worth one billion dollars.

How Thompson did it is recorded in this book and has been my textbook for raising investment and developing the Galactic Cap.

Although the technological challenges are much less difficult than going to the bottom of the ocean, we feel the Galactic Cap will ultimately deliver more revenue than a ship of gold.

Our customers say it is the finest, most pleasurable condom in the world and every year 27 billion condoms are sold around the world. Plus, you don’t have to chip the Galactic Cap out of a rock or go down 8,000 feet to get it. It’s here now.

Just like gold, we need to test it.

We have Essential Access Health, a company with 50 years experience testing major condom brands. They are ready to give the Galactic Cap a clinical trial. It costs $150K to collect the data for 144 uses. Very inexpensive to test for a potential gold mine. Now is the time to invest or share.

Building Investor Confidence with Clinical Trials

2 months ago

Dear Cappers,

We are getting terrific independent, anonymous survey responses from our customers on SurveyMonkey.  For that reason, we are ready to begin clinical trials for the Galactic Cap to advance our goal of obtaining regulatory approval for our product.  We have a very reputable firm here in Los Angeles that conducts those trials. Here is what they recently wrote us:

Dear Charles,

It was great meeting with you and having an opportunity to see your incredible and unique Galactic Cap Condom in person.  Essential Access Health would be delighted to collaborate with you on the further development and evaluation of your product.  At this stage in your product development, we propose conducting an initial Feasibility and Performance Study of the Galactic Cap.  The study is designed to evaluate the performance (breakage, slippage), safety (adverse events) and acceptability of the Galactic Cap in a relatively small number of individuals. Thirty-six heterosexual couples not at risk of pregnancy, will be enrolled and asked to use four Galactic Cap condoms for sexual intercourse, and to report on breakage, slippage, leakage and measures of acceptability including ease of use, donning, removal, sensitivity, intensity of orgasm, likes/dislikes, and any problems they experience. 

Highly trained and experienced research staff will recruit and enroll couples at a clinical visit, teach them how to properly don the condoms and to complete detailed condom use diaries.  Couples will be provided with four Galactic Cap condoms for evaluation at home, and asked to return to the clinic with their completed condom use diaries in approximately 2 weeks following condom use. Couples will also be provided with special test kits and asked to collect vaginal specimens before and after each act of intercourse.  Vaginal specimens will be evaluated for the presence of prostate specific antigen (PSA), a biomarker indicating semen exposure.  

The proposed sample size (approximately 144 uses) is intended to provide sufficient information to guide further development of the Galactic Cap Condom before proceeding to the larger Phase II Clinical Studies.                                                             

Essential Access Health will execute the study, perform all data analysis, and prepare a written report. Prior to enrolling study subjects, the study protocol, informed consent, instructional materials, and data collection instruments will be reviewed and approved by Essential Access’s Institutional Review Board (IRB) mandated to protect the rights of human subjects participating in clinical studies. Following IRB approval, this study would be completed within approximately 3 months at a cost of approximately $150,000 depending on the final study design and input from you as the sponsor. 

We would be happy to prepare a detailed protocol and budget for your review should you decide to proceed with the study.  

Sincerely, 

Ron Frezieres

VP Research & Evaluation

Essential Access Health

Now, here is where our Cappers come in: Over the next couple of months, we need you and other investors to help fund this groundbreaking opportunity for condoms.  With very positive results from this clinical trial, it will provide sophisticated investors with the confidence that we can revolutionize the condom industry, change the world for the better and generate a tremendous amount of revenue for our shareholders.  Please help us get this important work started now.  Invest or share at the link below:

Time to Light the Fuse

Dear Cappers,

William Shockley, the co-inventor of the transistor and father of Silicon Valley, was once explaining the concept of amplification, which is what silicon chips do to electricity. To paraphrase, he said “Imagine if you take a bale of hay and tie it to the tail of a mule and then strike a match and set it on fire. Amplification will be the effect of the minimal energy in striking a match compared to the maximum energy expended by the mule running over the horizon with its tail on fire."

As inventions go, we've captured lightning in a bottle. The Galactic Cap is the finest, most pleasurable condom in the world based on independent anonymous surveys. We now have the funds to begin large scale production and lower the cost of our product. Next, we're after regulatory approval. We need your investment to amplify the power of the Galactic Cap, light it on fire and launch it around the world. Invest or share our link now to put the Cap on the Map:

We are Back!

3 months ago


Dear Cappers,

Here is the latest update on our campaign: The great news is that our campaign is back up and running so that we can begin our final phase of investment. We were delayed for 7 - 10 days while our attorney and CPA reviewed our campaign so that we could continue to raise up to $1.07M. We will use these funds to begin clinical trials and obtain regulatory approval. 

We had a nice shout out/feature in Crowditz newsletter under "Most Likely To Sell Out." They track Regulation CF campaigns across the entire US, and they said that Powell Development Group was "extremely likely" to reach their maximum goal. Check it out below:

https://www.crowditz.com/2018/01/powell-development-group-startengine/

You may also notice on the Crowditz site that we went from being red-hot to stagnant. This was due to the fact that our campaign page was frozen while we filed an amendment to our Form C to increase the maximum raise up to $1.07M. Now that we are back, we're looking to regain our forward momentum.

We have 102 days left in our campaign. Please invest or share:

Re-Certification & Our New Commercial

4 months ago

Dear Cappers,

Thanks to all of you, we have met our initial goal of $107K! Well done! Start Engine notified all of you that we were extending our campaign another 60 days to attain our secondary goal. We will use the funds raised in our initial goal to begin large scale production and reduce the price of our product. In the next phase of fundraising, we will use the proceeds to begin clinical trials to obtain regulatory approval to sell our product. 

You may have noticed that our campaign page has been "frozen" at $106,999.20 as we go through the re-certification process to extend the campaign. We are still accepting investment, but the numbers won't go up until the re-certification process has been completed. This has hurt our fundraising, as we went from very robust to something akin to an investment dead zone. Bear with us a few more days, and the re-certification process will be completed. In the meantime, have a look at our most recent commercial:

Thank you again for all your support.

Behold: The Moneymaker

4 months ago

Dear Cappers,

The Moneymaker's just arrived! Not too sexy, huh? Well, it is if you are an investor because this is the machine that is going to automate the production of our Galactic Cap. With this machine we can begin large scale production and dramatically lower the cost of our product. Additionally, we will produce G-Caps in a clean room with PIN registration. This registration sets us up for producing parts and the necessary documentation to obtain regulatory approval. Initially, we will start with a CE Mark, which grants us the ability to sell our product in Europe and 75% of the rest of the world. We'll use this revenue to obtain FDA regulatory approval, which is much more time consuming and expensive.

Thanks to you, we have raised over $102K with 7 days left to go in our Start Engine campaign.  We’re shooting for our goal of $107K. Keep in mind we have the finest, most pleasurable contraceptive condom in the world. The prototyping process has been completed and with your help we can move to the next phase of the process, ultimately launching the Galactic Cap around the world. 

As shareholders of our company, we want to keep you informed and involved. Even after the campaign is completed, we will routinely keep you updated on our progress. So, here are a few ways that you can help the company:

  • Help us raise the last $5,000 to make our goal.
  • Help build our brand by buying our product and sharing our news on social media.

The Power of Women

4 months ago

The Power of Women: What will happen when women demand that men wear the Galactic Cap? Because there's no excuse now for using no protection. 

Power of the Purse: Since we are consistently sold out at $20 per G-Cap, what will happen when the price drops to $5 or less?

Power of Regret: What will happen when we begin large scale production and the Galactic Cap takes off and you did not invest? Don't have any regrets! Invest now:

James, Alexander, Clifton,

Craig & Jonathan.

It might interest you to know what the sexiest states and countries are by their interest in investing in the Galactic Cap. California is #1, followed by Texas, Colorado, and Georgia. Here are the numbers to see where your state/country ranks:

CA: 27, TX: 9, CO: 8, GA: 8, VA: 8, IL: 7, NV: 5, FL: 5, MO: 5, OH: 4, NY: 4, NJ: 4, WA: 4, OR: 3, MI: 3, MA: 2, LA: 2, KS: 2, PA: 2, MD: 2, AK: 1,WV: 1, IA: 1, UT: 1, TN: 1, MN: 1, NH: 1, HI: 1, CT: 1. Slovenia: 2, Singapore: 1, Austria: 1, Puerto Rico: 1, Malaysia: 1, Norway: 1,

Your investments helped our numbers grow to more than $97,000! But there's only 14 days left to invest, get the word out, and have your state/country move up the rankings. Here's the link to reinvest or share with others:

Be Part of History

4 months ago


Dear Cappers,

The Galactic Cap isn't a fancy algorithm, a new boat or bike, waterproof ear buds, a micro wallet, a premium coffee maker, or a fantastic drain protector. No sir! The Galactic Cap is the finest, most pleasurable contraceptive condom in the world. It will do for condoms what the Mac did for the computer and what the iPhone did for the telephone. It is a quantum leap forward for better sex.

So, who are our customers? Every man and woman on the planet who are sexually active.

How big is the condom market? Every year, 27 billion condoms are sold worldwide.

How bad is the competition? Their product is 400 years old, has not fundamentally changed, fails 15-18% of the time, and is universally disliked by both men and women.

We have 18 days left in our campaign to reach $107K. It's time for you to be a part of history! Help us put the Cap on the Map by investing or sharing now:

Good News: Prototyping Phase Complete

5 months ago

Dear Cappers,

Good news: The prototyping phase for the Galactic Cap has been completed. We have solved a thorny problem with the adhesive. For several months it's been too sticky. However, the new adhesive stays securely attached, is approved by the FDA for use on skin, and comes off cleanly during the removal process. Our plan now is to complete the campaign, begin large scale production, and lower the cost of our product. We can export our product to Europe and ¾ of the rest of the world while we raise revenue, attract investors, and work for full regulatory approval for our product. 

Again we have the finest, most pleasurable contraceptive condom in the world based on independent, anonymous surveys with our customers. We have 21 days left in our campaign and would like to reach $107K. Please help us put the Cap on the Map. Invest or share now:

Cap vs. Condom

5 months ago


Dear Investors,

Here's a little head-to-head competition with the traditional condom versus the Galactic Cap:

One is 400 years old, has not fundamentally changed, fails 15-18% of the time, and is universally disliked by both men and women.

The Galactic Cap, on the other hand, is the finest, most pleasurable condom in the world based on independent, anonymous surveys with our customers. They say things like:

 “Holy shit, these things are amazing,”

“Charles Powell, you, sir, are a genius.”

“It was Epic.  I’m ordering another 10.”

"Best condom I've used yet."

“Thrilling.”

“It was the finest condom experience I ever had.”

"I would say it's the closest thing to nothing but skin I've found."

“Easy to apply!"

“I ordered a ten pack. I've used 5 so far. Your condom is batting 5 for 5 no leaks!"

"My wife reported that she thought they were the best condom we have ever used!"

“I've tried quite a lot of condoms over the years. Settled on the Japanese sagami original .02 brand for two years. This was still much better. I would say the closest thing to nothing but skin I've found.”

“Could barely feel it. Had to check it was still secure (which it was).”

Spread the word that there's a new product about to hit the market, and help us put the Cap on the Map! Share our campaign link NOW.

All the best,

Charlie

Headed to the Barn

6 months ago


Dear Cappers,

As they say in the Midwest, we are headed to the barn. With only 7 days left in our campaign, we have raised over $74,000. We accomplished this feat with your 129 investments and 228 followers supporting the Galactic Cap. Thank you to each new investor of this revolutionary new product: 

Reyes, Bryan, Dwight, Mitchell

Jared, Roderick, Recardo, Josh

Donald, Rhonda, Richard, Deontay

Alfonso, William, Charles, Eric

Frank, Armando, Yasen, Vincent, Buck

Jon, Dee, Richard, Bijhan, Andrew

Ideally, we would like to raise an additional $25,000 to hit the goal of $100,000 in our campaign. A simple way to do this would be for each of you to either double your investment or contact a friend or group of friends to invest an amount equal to your original investment. 

Since you are now shareholders of the company, we would like to use your influence to take the company to the next level. 

This coming Friday, we are touring a plant in San Diego to begin large scale production, lower the cost of our product, and launch the Galactic Cap worldwide. Concurrently, we will be partnering with the University of Southern California to begin clinical trials and obtain regulatory approval. 

Re-invest or share now.

All the best,

Charlie

They All Laughed at Wilbur and His Brother

7 months ago


Dear Cappers,

As the song goes:

"They all laughed at Christopher Columbus
When he said the world was round
They all laughed when Edison recorded sound
They all laughed at Wilbur and his brother
When they said that man could fly"

In 2014, we ran an Indiegogo campaign for the Galactic Cap. We didn’t even have a product. Just the idea people deserved a better condom. During the campaign, a headline came out that read, “This is why the Galactic Cap campaign is a failure.” Not WILL BE a failure but IS a failure.

The campaign raised over $100,000. We took that money, redesigned, tested and patented the Galactic Cap so that it is now the finest, most pleasurable condom in the world, based on independent anonymous surveys with our customers.

"They all said we could never win
They laughed at us and how!
But ho, ho, ho!
Who's got the last laugh now?"

Today we’re in a similar situation. We’ve raised over $65,000 to begin large-scale production, lower the price of our product and launch the Galactic Cap worldwide. We have 18 days left. Some have said our campaign will fail because we valued the company too low to attract really large investors. We said “But that’s a good deal for our current investors.”

So it’s now time to show the big boys that there’s a groundswell of support for the Galactic Cap.

In 18 days, we want hit another $100K and say to them:

"You laughed at us and how!
But ho, ho, ho!
Who's got the last laugh now?"

Help us make it happen. Invest now – even a little – and tell your friends.

All the best,

Charlie

Finest, Most Pleasurable Condom

7 months ago


Dear Cappers,

Very good news: Our campaign is doing very well and has attracted 4 or 5 large investors. As you know, we need to go beyond the $100K mark to get regulatory approval with a CE Mark. Currently, the company’s valuation is $3M, which is a good deal for you. But, we have been told by a large investor that it should have a higher valuation. He says this because we have a proven, world class healthcare product that already has 2 years of sales, repeat customers, 2 patents, worldwide media attention, and are first in the marketplace.

The Galactic Cap is the finest, most pleasurable condom in the world based on independent anonymous surveys with our customers. This is your opportunity to invest now, invest again or to bring other potential investors into the campaign. Please spread the word and share our link:

www.startengine.com/powell-development-group-inc

With your support, the Galactic Cap will help millions around the world.

All the best,

Plans Moving Forward

7 months ago

Dear Cappers,

Currently, we produce the finest, most pleasurable condom in the world. But to launch the Galactic Cap worldwide, we need investment capital.  Our first goal from our campaign is $100K.

What will we do with the initial funds raised?

We will begin large scale production of the Galactic Cap and lower the price of our product for export to Europe and countries outside of the US via online sales.  Concurrently, we will contract with the University of Southern California’s regulatory department to begin clinical trials and obtain regulatory approval for our product.

How much will this cost?

Our estimate is that it will cost $500K to conduct clinical trials and obtain a CE Mark (the European equivalent of the FDA).  It is less expensive and faster to obtain regulatory approval.  Later we will acquire FDA approval.

Why didn’t we ask for $500K in this campaign?

Start Engine advised us to first raise $100K because the financial audit for the larger raise was much more expensive.  They said when you exceed the $100K, you can fund that audit with the money you raised and extend your campaign.

Therefore, our first goal is to raise an additional $45K to reach the $100K mark in the next 35 days.  With your help, we can extend the campaign and raise the funds necessary to obtain regulatory approval.  Invest today.

Kind Regards,

Charles Powell

Breaking the Barrier

7 months ago

Dear Cappers,

We finally broke through the $54K barrier, and are now approaching the second half of our campaign. We have had 94 investments from 83 investors, and 173 followers.  Ideally, we would like to attract larger investment in the $5K-$10K range now that we have shown a broad base of support. We have 40 days left to hit our $100K mark. Once we do that, we can extend the campaign and hit our $500K goal necessary to obtain regulatory approval. One European investor has said that if we get close to or $500K goal, he will invest $100K-$150K to make up the difference.

We need your help to convert some of those 173 followers into investors. 

Currently, we have the finest, most pleasurable condom in the world based on independent, anonymous surveys with our customers. Our revolutionary new product has been featured in Newsweek, The New York Times, The Guardian (UK), and the Huffington Post among many others. Our product has been sold and field tested for 2 years with incredible results.

Currently, we are seeking to raise $500K to obtain regulatory approval with a CE Mark (the European equivalent of the FDA). The approval process will take approximately 6 - 9 months and we feel the clinical trials will go smoothly for several reasons: 1) The Galactic Cap uses the same polyurethane material already used in traditional condoms; 2) We also use a medical grade adhesive which has been pre-approved by the FDA for use on skin; and finally 3) We have tested the Galactic Cap for over 2 years with our customers and have had no adverse effects.

Currently, the condom market is 27 billion units sold every year, with only 5% of the men in the world wearing a condom. In developed nations, condom usage tops out at only 20%. We anticipate dramatically disrupting the traditional condom market, as well as expanding that market to millions of men who dislike using traditional condoms and don't wear them.

Now is the time to step on the gas and help us obtain our first $100K goal. Invest and share today.

Happy Investing,

Charles Powell

"Best condom I've used yet."

“Thrilling.”

How To Take Down A Giant

8 months ago

Dear Cappers,

When we modernized the traditional condom, we did so with people in mind. Corporations like Trojan and Durex don't care about the people and are only out to make money. They don't want us to succeed because we'd be taking a piece of their "pie." Once we have obtained FDA approval, it’s not unrealistic to expect them to protect their domination of the condom market.

So how does the underdog take on the giant corporations? Overwhelming Numbers and Speed.  

Giants are notoriously big and slow, so we’ll use those traits against them.

Crowd funding is fun precisely because we can quickly deploy the crowd.  And who is the crowd?  It is every man and women with the ability to invest in the Galactic Cap.  At least a billion people fit that description and here’s how we recruit them. Please share the links for the Daily Breeze and our campaign:

https://www.dailybreeze.com/2018/02/18/this-torrance-inventor-says-his-galactic-condom-will-change-the-world/

http://www.startengine.com/powell-development-group-inc

Everyone of you who has invested in the G-Cap can find another person or persons to invest in the next 30 days. And, just like that, we can raise another $50,000.

Everybody wants to do something bigger than themselves to better the world.  Be a part of the change today.

All the best,

Charlie

Conquering Trojan & Durex

8 months ago

Dear Cappers,

This week we topped $50K. That's the good news. The bad news is someone had their investment voided and we dropped back to $48.8K. As I mentioned before, a fantastic new Galactic Cap article came out in a local Los Angeles newspaper. The headline in the newspaper itself read "Condom Inventor Seeks To Lead Trojan Conquest." Please share the link to encourage more of your friends to invest:

https://www.dailybreeze.com/2018/02/18/this-torrance-inventor-says-his-galactic-condom-will-change-the-world/

Our goal is to reach $75K by March 1st, and $100K by March 15th. To do this, we would like to enlist your help since you are now owners of the company, to tell friends and potential investors about our campaign. If everyone was responsible for the same amount that they invested, we could easily make those goals. Don't forget to share our campaign link as well:

Fantastic New Galactic Cap Article

8 months ago

Dear Cappers,

We are making great headway on putting the Cap on the Map. Today, a fantastic new Galactic Cap article came out in a local Los Angeles newspaper. The headline in the newspaper itself read "Condom Inventor Seeks To Lead Trojan Conquest." Here's the link for the online version:

https://www.dailybreeze.com/2018/02/18/this-torrance-inventor-says-his-galactic-condom-will-change-the-world/

Our goal is to reach $75K by March 1st, and $100K by March 15th. To do this, we would like to enlist your help since you are now owners of the company, to tell friends and potential investors about our campaign. If everyone was responsible for the same amount that they invested, we could easily make those goals. For example: if you invested $500, try to find investor/s that will invest that same amount. That way we will be multiplying the effect of our crowd funding. It's a fun way to make our goals. And what better way to sell the company than by those who already have skin in the game. 

Thanks for all your help.

All the best,

Dear Cappers,

It's time to put the Cap on the Map! We had a very impressive two weeks of activity with our current Start Engine equity crowd funding campaign. We are very close to going over the $50K mark in a short amount of time, but we need to keep that momentum going. As most of you are now shareholders and owners of the company, we are relying on you to share our link with other potential investors. 

www.startengine.com/powell-development-group-inc

We have engaged the University of Southern California (USC) to help us with all the stages necessary for regulatory approval for the Galactic Cap. The money required for this initial work will be comprised of a donation to USC’s Research Department, under the direction of United Research Consultants. The good news here is that the donation for this research work will be tax deductible to the donor/investor, which should make investors feel even more confident in the way forward. Yesterday we did an interview for a local Southern California newspaper, and we will share that with you shortly. As you know, investment attracts even more investment, so let's get out there, share that link and put the Cap on the Map!

All the best,

Dear Cappers,

We now have 81 investments and 143 followers supporting the Galactic Cap. We have raised nearly $50,000 in a short amount of time. Rather than just sending out a generic thank you, we wanted to thank each new investor individually for your generous support. So thank you to: 

Andrea, Christian, 

Paul, Nancy, 

Nathaniel, John, Nathan.

With the Start Engine campaign, you have the opportunity to invest multiple times, rather than just once. Additionally, since you are now shareholders of the company, please get out there and spread the word to other potential investors about this investment opportunity.

Those of you who have invested will have bragging rights when the Galactic Cap is launched worldwide. Thanks again for your support.

All the best,

Charlie

9 months ago


Dear Cappers,

We had a wonderful Week 2 with investment close to $50K. This raise is one of the fastest raises in the healthcare segment of equity crowdfunding. Rather than just sending out a generic thank you, we wanted to thank each new investor individually for your generous support. So thank you to: 

Donna, Haidan, Jamal, 

Edwin, Johnny, Anil, 

Cecil Vicki, Chris, 

David, Nga, Andre, 

Brad, Scott.

With the Start Engine campaign, you have the opportunity to invest multiple times, rather than just once. So, thank you to Robert and Shanell for doing it again.

We now have 66 investors and 129 followers supporting the Galactic Cap. Those who invested will have bragging rights when the Galactic Cap is launched worldwide. You were there when history was made. 

Thanks again for your support. Help spread the word so we can keep it going.

All the best,

Charlie

You are a band of brothers and sisters fighting for a common cause...one that will help reduce 3 of the world's toughest problems: Unplanned pregnancy, overpopulation, and STD/HIV infection.

Dear Cappers,

We went live Monday evening with Start Engine, and we have raised $31,000 in just over 36 hours! 

Thank you to our supporters and investors for giving us such a magnificent start! 

Our goal now is to raise $50,000 or more by the end of the weekend. To do that, we need a band of brothers and sisters to take Galactic Cap to the next level. Are you with us? 

All the best, 

Charlie
