Company Background The company is incorporated as Fidu Technologies Bhd on 7th July 2017. So far we have raised RM60,000. Currently, we have a demo account. We have validated our solution with users who have signed up with us even without the platform ready. Currently, we have got 150 restaurants and hotels, 70 suppliers on board with us. The suppliers are filling up our product template listing form for us to create the marketplace with their products. Our buyers include mamak chains all the way to big groups of restaurants like TGI Fridays, Rakuzen, Sushi Zanmai, Oriental. Our suppliers include CP, Safe Egg, Piau Kee, Long Seng with goods ranging from fresh produce to dried goods. We have Deans of hospitality school of universities like Taylor’s as our co-founders and active directors. We have struck up partnership with Zepto, Ipay88 and ARMS ( a top 10 local POS system).
Funding Milestone We are currently doing our pre-seed round to raise RM600k. RM200k will be used to develop web version 1, app prototype and integration with other softwares. RM50k will be used for office and IT equipment, RM120k will be used for grand launch in April and other branding and marketing exercise. RM250k will be used OPEX for 6 months. With this funding round, we will have 3950 users and a total of 12 features on the platform, targeting to bring in RM2 million of revenue by May 2019. Next round we will be doing Angel round to help us penetrate ASEAN and we will be raising Rm4.75million. The target will be to rake in RM9.5mil of revenue through 10550 users and 20 features on our platform by May 2020.
% Equity Allocation We are diluting 10% of equity for pre-seed round and 5% of equity for Angel round.
Expected ROI For investors who come in at pre-seed round, they are looking at 150 folds of return by year 2021.
Risks and Mitigation One of the risks faced by the business is the refusal of traditional business to adopt the solution. To mitigate this risk, we will be collaborating with associations and government bodies like Halal Hub, Matrade to run campaigns to educate them. Another risk is the heavy groundwork involved in verifying our users as we only accept verified users on our platform to ensure trust. This can be mitigated by creating SOP for verification. Once we have gone through a few rounds of verification, the SOP can be up and we will be able to streamline the verification process. The other risk is the various SOPs and processes among our users. As Fidu is a solution for our users, we have to learn and understand our users through data collection on our platform. With sufficient data, we will be able to cover all aspects of our users. Lastly, since we are a plug and play solution, it is time consuming to integrate with other software. This encourages us to create a nimble, flexible platform that can be integrated with any other software and by making a name for ourselves, other software will come knocking on our door to request for integration too.
Exit Strategies We are going to list on LEAP market in Malaysia by year 2020 and we are assisted by Arris Venture, a VC firm to shape the company towards that from today itself. Arris Venture is also looking to set up a VC fund to govern the investment that comes into Fidu. After LEAP market, we will be able to catapult to other boards in other regions.

Wifi-based advertisement solution

Current Status Revenue Generating, Pre-Profit
Amount Invested RM39,000
Funding Required RM600,001 to RM1,000,000
Description CYFY MARKETING is located in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. We are a Wi-fi solution specialist company specializing in Marketing, Branding and Advertising.

With the ever growing needs for internet and wireless connection, we tap on the growing scale and opportunity by bringing our product and service to both users and businesses alike. Our target market are business owners with one or more premise and companies whom requires advance Wi-fi solutions.

The purpose of this proposal is to secure an investment for our expansion plans and further R&D for our various business models. Our Wi-fi solution itself has been field tested in 2 premises in the Klang Valley and so far our customer were satisfied with the results. Overall, both the software and hardware system is
extremely stable.

Our first priority is to quickly expand our zone of coverage by saturating the market with our AP (Access Point) of choice linking to our system. We projected an
estimated annual revenue return of more than RM5 million in the next following 2 years after saturation.

Business Opportunity 1. UNTAPPED WI-FI POTENTIAL
Free Wi-fi are offered almost everywhere by their own premise owners, however they are not utilized fully into adding value to their businesses. Most would just open up a free Wi-fi password protected channel and that’s about it. This is truly a waste of opportunity to further market or brand their own products or
services whenever someone uses their free Wi-fi.

2. POOR OR NON-EXISTENT WI-FI INFRASTRUCTURE
Most premise owners or businesses do not bother installing a Wi-fi infrastructure or simply has poor coverage or faced with myriad of technical problems even if
they have one. For those who does not have one, some consider it as being an extra cost or hassle should they look for someone to do the installation. As for
those who has one, having to maintain someone to look after their network and infrastructure seems like a challenge hence the quality of it degrades as time
passes, even to the point of abandonment.

3. COST PROHIBITIVE
There are plenty of companies out there offering Wi-fi solutions however their prices are sometimes too prohibitive for any small to medium sized companies
to even consider about. Even if some has the budget to go for it, they do not see how can a Wi-fi solution be value-adding to their business.

4. LARGER COMPETITORS OR SIMILAR SOLUTIONS
So far in the market within Malaysia, TM Net has offered public Wi-fi infrastructures at a cost charged per hourly usage. There are also some other companies that has similar solution as ours however the services offered are only a subset of what are and will be doing.

Revenue / Business Model OUR SOLUTION & PACKAGES ARE AS FOLLOWS

1. PAID ADVERTISEMENT (3rd phase)
Paid advertisement is where we seek out potential and interested advertisers to place their ads within our Wi-fi network. The advertisement will be transmitted to
all of our partnered vendors (clients who is choosing Package 3 & 4).

2. PAID WI-FI SOLUTION (1st phase – Completed)
In this package, customers are given the complete control over their own Wi-fi whereby they will be given an admin panel to customize the landing page, free of
any external advertisement.

Customers are also given the option to completely customize the page/pages apart from our templates. There will be additional cost but the end result would
be an unique page served to their surfers.

3. MIXED ADVERTISEMENT (3rd phase)
This package allows partial autonomy for our clients to customize their own page however the page will also be served external advertisements. In this package,
the client will be restricted to customize existing templates.

4. FREE WI-FI SOLUTION (2nd phase)
In this package, premise owners will receive a complementary AP (Access Point). The AP will serve as our node to advertise for our advertisers in Package 1.

5. PPC & IMPRESSION BASED ADS (Final phase)
In this package, anyone publicly can post up their advertisement. These advertisement will have a PPC (Pay-per-click) & Impression cost associated with it. Based on the budget given, they will be transmitted to all our Package 4 clients.

** Currently, our system is only offering Package number 2. Further development is needed before we can offer the other plans.
