Stockholm, 20 March 2017: NOA Potions AB, the premium Relax & Focus drink that took the crowdfunding world by storm when it raised more than EUR 106,000 within the first three minutes of going live on FundedByMe in 2015, has just confirmed that it has secured a substantial investment from Aggregate Media.

”We have had our eyes on NOA for some time and are pleased to invest at this stage as we have seen the company execute at record speed, show resourcefulness in overcoming obstacles and has great national and international potential,” says Patrik Rosén, CEO of Aggregate Media.

”I am very pleased that such a professional investor like Aggregate chooses to invest in NOA as I have seen how they have contributed to the success of great companies like Mathem, Storytel, Babyshop and others. This investment enables us to increase our growth rate substantially” says Noa Fridmark, CEO and founder of NOA Potions AB.

NOA is an all-natural health beverage that helps reduce stress and improve focus.  Active ingredients include Lemon Balm- and Green Tea-extracts and exclude all artificial active ingredients. NOA was named “Best Premium Beverage” at the World Beverage Innovation Awards (WBIA) 2014.

“NOA, which has completed hugely successful equity crowdfunding rounds on FundedByMe, recently got listed in pharmacy retailers including Apoteket AB and Apoteksgruppen, proving the growing interest in the functional health aspects of the product,” says Daniel Daboczy, CEO and co-founder of FundedByMe. “Their many international crowdfunding investors – of which I’m proudly one – has helped open many doors locally in Europe, and particularly in Asia,” Daboczy continues.

NOA is now sold nationwide in the largest drug store retailer in South Korea, Olive and Young and the mindfulness beverage from Scandinavia also appeals to Japanese health-focused consumers. NOA is available in retailers like Natural Lawson, Plaza and Beople in that country. Additionally, NOA recently got listed in El Corte Ingles in Spain and is currently sold in 16 countries with large food and beverage companies knocking on the door, hoping to join this success story.
