The Opportunity

Our background and your main purpose...

Ruroc exists to make helmets cool. We believe that re-engineering protection with the perfect balance of art and science will make people want to wear our helmets, making them safer and will mean they live longer (and cooler!). In 2019 we had our first £1m turnover day and in 2020 we had our first £1m turnover hour and we’re now in a fabulous position to build further growth.

In January 2020 the business completed a strategic review to build on this foundation, leading to a number of initiatives Ruroc believes will unlock future growth. Firstly, the business is now investing significant operational/systems upgrades to improve efficiency, leading to improvements in business processes and customer experience. Secondly, a clear product and target audience strategy that will help Ruroc create more amazing products, engaging content/stories that engage this audience and generate high lifetime value. Finally, a number of new roles across the business have been created to help expedite growth, this being one of them.

The leadership team believe this investment plan can unlock up to 100% growth in 2021 and then onto annual revenues of £50m within 3 years, making us one of the fastest-growing UK companies.
