Problem

In today’s rapidly evolving financial landscape, individuals are grappling with the complexities of managing their financial resources effectively. Traditional methods of handling bank cards, loyalty programs, and the emergence of cryptocurrencies have introduced challenges that demand innovative solutions. This is where Card Blanch steps in.

1. Fragmented Financial Landscape: The average individual carries multiple credit and debit cards, each serving different purposes such as travel, dining, or shopping. Juggling these cards, remembering PINs, and knowing which card to use where creates unnecessary confusion and hassle. This fragmented approach to financial management hinders convenience and efficiency.

2. Loyalty Program Complexity: Loyalty programs, designed to reward customer loyalty, often come from various brands and businesses. These programs frequently have distinct rules, redemption methods, and expiration dates. As a result, users struggle to maximize the benefits of these programs, missing out on potential savings and perks.

Solution

Card Blanch addresses these pain points by providing a unified platform that consolidates all financial aspects into a single, convenient space. Our AI-powered services offer spending insights and discount opportunities, ensuring users make informed financial decisions. By offering a singular card to access and manage financial resources, Card Blanch empowers users to regain control over their finances, streamline loyalty program benefits, and seamlessly adapt to the evolving shopping landscape.

With our smart SplitPay © technology, users can better utilize available funds, e.g., make bigger purchases by Card Blanch, covering it with multiple cards. You will still enjoy your cashback and other benefits programs from connected cards while paying for different categories like gas, utilities, groceries, and beyond. Card Blanch is poised to redefine how individuals manage their financial resources, offering them unprecedented control, convenience, and confidence.

Using algorithms, we can automatically apply the best card and currency for a particular transaction, as well as apply rewards and discount opportunities. Card Blanch then adapts all your financial acts to the credit score optimization plan raising your creditworthiness to the highest limits.

Business Model

Card Blanch operates on a multifaceted business model that aligns with our mission to provide users with a streamlined and rewarding financial management experience.

Additionally, merchants can leverage our up-sale rewards program, encouraging users to explore a wider range of products and services within their offerings.

4. Interchange Fees:
As users make transactions using their linked bank cards, Card Blanch collects interchange fees – a standard practice in the payment industry. These fees are charged to the merchants for processing transactions and are a significant revenue source for our platform.

5. Premium Services and Add-Ons:
Card Blanch offers premium services and add-ons beyond the basic subscription plans. These additional features cater to users seeking enhanced functionalities or specialized services. By offering value-added services, we create upselling opportunities that further contribute to our revenue streams.

Investors

Card Blanch has performed two previous exempt offerings.

April 2022: Card Blanch raised $1,019,665 through Regulation Crowdfunding.

Card Blanch’s next step is to raise $618k in this seed round. They intend to use the raised funds to create their patent portfolio, launch their MVP product, receive early adopters’ feedback, and launch an aggressive marketing campaign.

Terms

Card Blanch Inc. is offering securities in the form of Simple Agreements for Future Equity (“SAFE”), which provides investors the right to preferred stock in the Company (“Preferred Stock”), when and if the Company sponsors an equity offering that involves Preferred Stock, on the standard terms offered to other investors.

SAFE:  $6M Post Money Valuation Cap
Discount Rate:
60%
Target Offering: $10,000 | 10,000 Securities
Maximum Offering Amount: $618,000 | 618,000 Securities
Type of Security: SAFE
Offering Deadline: April 1, 2024
Minimum Investment: $300

Conversion to Preferred Equity: Based on SAFE, when Card Blanch engages in an offering of equity interests involving preferred stock, Investors will receive a number of shares of preferred stock calculated using the method that results in the greater number of preferred stock:

The total value of the investors investment divided by:

(i) The price of preferred stock issued to new investors multiplied by the discount rate (60%), or if the valuation for the company is more than $6,000,000 (the “Valuation Cap”), (ii) the amount invested by the investor divided by the quotient of the Valuation Cap divided by the total amount of the Company’s capitalization at that time.

Additional Terms of the Valuation Cap: For purposes of (ii) above, the Company’s capitalization calculated as of immediately prior to the Equity Financing and (without double-counting, in each case calculated on an as-converted to Common Stock basis):

  • Includes all shares of Capital Stock issued and outstanding
  • Includes all Converting Securities
  • Includes all (i) issued and outstanding Options and (ii) Promised Options; and
  • Includes the Unissued Option Pool, except that any increase to the Unissued Option Pool in connection with the Equity Financing shall only be included to the extent that the number of Promised Options exceeds the Unissued Option Pool prior to such increase.

Liquidity Events: If the Company has an initial public offering or is acquired by, merged with or otherwise taken over by another company or new owners prior to Investors in the SAFEs receiving preferred stock, Investors will receive proceeds equal to the greater of (i) the Purchase Amount (the “Cash-Out Amount”) or (ii) the amount payable on the number of shares of Common Stock equal to the Purchase Amount divided by the Liquidity Price (the “Conversion Amount”).

Liquidity Priority: In a Liquidity Event or Dissolution Event, the SAFE is intended to operate like standard nonparticipating Preferred Stock. The Investor’s right to receive its Cash-Out Amount is:

  • Junior to payment of outstanding indebtedness and creditor claims, including contractual claims for payment and convertible promissory notes (to the extent such convertible promissory notes are not actually or notionally converted into Capital Stock);
  • On par with payments for other SAFEs and/or Preferred Stock, and if the applicable proceeds are insufficient to permit full payments to the Investor and such other SAFEs and/or Preferred Stock, the applicable proceeds will be distributed pro rata to the Investor and such other SAFEs and/or Preferred Stock in proportion to the full payments that would otherwise be due; and
  • Senior to payments for Common Stock.

The Minimum Individual Purchase Amount accepted under this Regulation CF Offering is $300. The Company must reach its Target Offering Amount of $10,000 by April 1, 2024 (the “Offering Deadline”). Unless the Company raises at least the Target Offering Amount of $10,000 under the Regulation CF offering by the Offering Deadline, no securities will be sold in this Offering, investment commitments will be cancelled, and committed funds will be returned.

Risks

Card Blanch has the Following Risks:

1.

An investment in the Company (also referred to as “we”, “us”, “our”, or “Company”) involves a high degree of risk and should only be considered by those who can afford the loss of their entire investment. Furthermore, investments should only be undertaken by persons whose financial resources are sufficient to enable them to indefinitely retain an illiquid investment. Each investor in the Company should consider all of the information provided to such potential investor regarding the Company as well as the following risk factors, in addition to the other information listed in the Company’s Form C. The following risk factors are not intended, and shall not be deemed to be, a complete description of the commercial and other risks inherent in the investment in the Company.

2.

The Company, is offering a SAFE in the amount of up to $618,000 in this offering, and may close on any investments that are made. Even if the maximum amount is raised, the Company is likely to need additional funds in the future in order to grow, and if it cannot raise those funds for whatever reason, including reasons relating to the Company itself or the broader economy, it may not survive. If the Company manages to raise only the minimum amount of funds, sought, it will have to find other sources of funding for some of the plans outlined in “Use of Proceeds.” The Company may never receive a future equity financing that results in the conversion of the Securities upon such future financing.

3.

All of our current services are variants on one type of service, providing a platform for online capital formation. Our revenues are therefore dependent upon the market for online capital formation.

4.

The preferred stocks that the SAFE converts into has no voting rights attached to them. You will be part of the minority shareholders of the Company and therefore will have a limited ability to influence management’s decisions on how to run the business. You are trusting in management discretion in making good business decisions that will grow your investments. Furthermore, in the event of a liquidation of our company, you will only be paid out if there is any cash remaining after all of the creditors of our company have been paid out.

5.

Our growth projections are based on an assumption that with an increased advertising and marketing budget our products will be able to gain traction in the market at a faster rate than our current products have. It is possible that our new products will fail to gain market acceptance for any number of reasons. If the new products fail to achieve significant sales and acceptance in the market, this could materially and adversely impact the value of your investment.

6.

One of the Company’s most valuable assets is its intellectual property. The Company’s owns 10 trademarks, copyrights, Internet domain names, and trade secrets. We believe one of the most valuable components of the Company is our intellectual property portfolio. Due to the value, competitors may misappropriate or violate the rights owned by the Company. The Company intends to continue to protect its intellectual property portfolio from such violations. It is important to note that unforeseeable costs associated with such practices may invade the capital of the Company.

7.

To be successful, the Company requires capable people to run its day to day operations. As the Company grows, it will need to attract and hire additional employees in sales, marketing, design, development, operations, finance, legal, human resources and other areas. Depending on the economic environment and the Company’s performance, we may not be able to locate or attract qualified individuals for such positions when we need them. We may also make hiring mistakes, which can be costly in terms of resources spent in recruiting, hiring and investing in the incorrect individual and in the time delay in locating the right employee fit. If we are unable to attract, hire and retain the right talent or make too many hiring mistakes, it is likely our business will suffer from not having the right employees in the right positions at the right time. This would likely adversely impact the value of your investment.
