Big Pocket – a mobile ewallet aggregator

Current Status Concept / Business Plan
Amount Invested RM50,000.00
Funding Required RM1,000,001 to RM2,000,000
Description Big Pocket is a mobile aggregation platform that primarily aggregates eWallets, with the possible opportunities to include other services such as eVoucher/ eCoupon, ebooking and eLoyalty into one single app.
Business Opportunity At the current market condition, consumers would hesistate to top up their eWallets, without any cash out option or mechanism to move money from one eWallet to another. On the other hand, merchants have to toggle between various merchant apps from different eWallet operators to receive payment. It is both difficult for consumers and merchants to track their spending history sitting at different apps. As for the eWallet operators, it is expensive to maintain and acquire merchants.

BigPocket is to act as aggregator for all eWallets, thus allowing consumer to select which eWallet to pay from a single app and making payment via aggregated fund from multiple eWallets. Consumers will also be able to transfer money between eWallets.

We also empower merchants to accept payment from different eWallets in one single merchant app, reducing the complexity of mutliple apps and eWallet operators will be able to access a wider merchant network.

Revenue / Business Model Our business model is a transactional-based model by taking a 20% cut on MDR rate. Other revenues will come from tranfer fees as well as additional features that will be launched in the future.

Artisan Kitchen

Current Status Pre-Revenue
Amount Invested RM10,000
Funding Required RM300,000 or less
Description At Essential Bebe, we have been targeting the artisan bath & body products such as facial scrubs, handmade soaps & bathbombs in which a great array of varieties can be found in social medias like Instagram and Carousell. Most of the artisan products are usually handmade by different crafters, which then require the customer to do multiple order placements and bank transactions.

Our idea is to gather all these artisans for bath & body products in a single selling platform, where the customers pick their items, then we put everything in a box, wrap it nicely and get it shipped on time. Thus, saving the time and hassle to liaise with different sellers and they’ll be able to get all desired items in one box!

Business Opportunity Essential Bebe will provide the platform for local artisans to showcase their handmade products. How?

1. Secure stocks from local brands
2. Sell products online
3. Customer select desired products from various local brands
4. We will pack and wrap it
5. Packaged box ready to be shipped to customers

Our future website will give an ease to customers to have a more rewarding and less time consuming shopping experience.

Management Team Rugayyah Mazlan (Business Manager @ Artisan hunter)
Adi Firdaus Fauzi (Assistant Business Manager @ Delivery Guy)
Company Background It all started in April 2016, where I stumbled upon the fact that I dislike shopping via social medias (i.e. Instagram, Facebook) because I will then need to send a message to the seller which I need to wait some time for them to respond to my queries. This delays everything, from making a decision, finalizing my orders, sending my details and make payments. But then again, most of these artisan products are sold in this platform, so what choice do I have?

It then led me to become an agent for a few handmade products such as bathbombs, facial scrubs and soaps. I took my own savings out and invest on some stocks, packagings, marketing and sell them on Instagram (@essentialbebe). Since then, Essential Bebe customers come all over Malaysia, Brunei, Singapore and even France!

My first target was to sell off 50 bathbombs in the first month of launching. It was done successfully 24 days with profit of RM550. As a person who is working on this part-time, I found it is quite challenging as I have limited time to entertain queries from customers and at the same time I need the funds from my monthly salary.

As of to this date, we at Essential Bebe are working on the items below:

1. Communication with other local handmade body & bath product brands to expand our product range
2. Developing our own website for a faster and easy shopping experience.

Funding Milestone Feb 2017: RM40,000
Secure 5 local brands
Stock up on packaging (4 types)
Marketing (Social media influencers)

March 2017: RM20,000
Website Development
Website Go Live
Marketing (Social media influencers)

Important note:
1. Fundings also goes to manpower required for every month (i.e. Delivery, packaging, etc)
2. Instagram shop operates as usual

A system which is common in the European and America market, Global Automation Combustion Solution Sdn Bhd have successfully set up a system in Surabaya for Sungai Budi Group. Global Automation Combustion Solution Sdn Bhd proudly claimed the first unit in South East Asia and it was design and built locally. The founder of Global Automation Combustion Solution Sdn Bhd begin to recognized the potential of the tubular drag conveyor in other industries and begin to massive promote the system.

In the year 2016, Global Automation Combustion Solution had successfully sold 10 units of the conveyor system and begin to penetrate into other market. Beside by the conveyor system, Global Automation Combustion Solution Sdn Bhd also expand its automation department. With a new system to remote monitoring all the process plants around the globe, Sungai Budi Group had agreed to purchase the system to monitor their process plant around Indonesia through VPN. With the agreement, Global Automation Combustion continue to upgrade its automation department and invest in technologies. In March 2016, Global Automation Combustion Solution hired a sales representative in Surabaya, Indonesia to support the market expansion in Indonesia.

Room Trading Online

Current Status Concept / Business Plan
Amount Invested none
Funding Required RM300,001 to RM600,000
Description is a new concept of trading or investment and we will be the pioneer of this new thing. My name is Irwan bin Hisham the founder of this new trading concept that can be implemented worldwide. Room trading will have a new unique trading platform which allows the Room Traders ( its a name for those who signed up with this plan ) to purchase a room offered daily with our affliate or participating hotel all around the globe at a very attractive or lower price because the Room Traders will purchase the room in advance up to one year date from the date of purchase. The longer dates the lower the prices they can get. Example Room Traders purchased 20 deluxe rooms now but the date is for example is on 1st April 2017 at rm100 each. Later on 1st April 2017the hotel will resell back all rooms purchased by Room Traders and let say they managed to.sell.each room at Rm150 each so the difference or the profit will be divided according to the Room Trading Online policy. Every steps , rules, glossary, do’s and don’t has been set up by the founder of this program that will ensure all parties will get a benefit from this type of trading.
Business Opportunity Since we are the pioneer in the world and offering a secured short term of investment with a return of investment up to 50% from invested amount for an investment only takes one to 12 month period it will be a new trend of investing money and it can go worldwide easily because we are investing in hotel rooms which already existed and they are thousands of hotel in each country who can be our affliate or partner of Room Trading Online. For the hotel, the good thing about participating in this program is that they can collect the future room rental now and that money can be used for many reasons. The nearest example is air asia airline always come out with good prices for a future tickets but have be purchased now. Futhermore in the future after hotel this system can also be implemented on airline tickets, cruise ship tickets, football or sport matches tickets and manymore. Another best thing about this new concept, for each hotel participate they will a contract that saying that they will can only do this type of trading only with Room Trading Online up to certain years agreed upon both parties.
Revenue / Business Model The company entitle to get transaction fees that includes handling fee and the charges suggested is Rm 10 or 0.7% which ever is higher per contract. The company also entitle to get the clearing fees for each room sold by the hotel to the new hotel guests and the amount suggested is RM 5 to 15 for the room.price below RM 500 and many more. So from this i would say the more people enroll with this type of trading the more money company will make. Example : let say in one country they are only 500 trades per day so the minimum charges company colllected is RM5000 so if 50 countries also doing 500 trades per day the minimum amount is RM 250,000.00 ( this calculation based on RM) so if 30 days for 50 countries with this least amount of trading is RM7,500,000.00 million. if 365 days, the possible amount is RM91,250,000.00 million a year and this is just based on 500 trading per day for 50 countries with the lowest handling fee which is RM 10 per contract. Imagine if its for 100 countries and each country has thousands of transaction and we have not yet touch on the clearing fees which also included in each contract as service fee.
Management Team The marketing department is a back bone of this new project. Since its new, it will be a bit of challenge but when it becomes a trend than it will be easier. Professional advertisement required for this project to be succesful worldwide.
Company Background At the moment I have just submitted my idea to be protected by Myipo. I have checked with bsnk negara and Suruhanjaya sekuriti Malaysia and they said they dont have a problem with this new concept of trading. It is not started yet.
Funding Milestone cost of web and applications design so far the cheapest that i hv found is around RM 120,000.00.
office small will do
i need an accountant, marketing team and a few hundred thousands for advertisement.
The amount i am looking at around 500k to 1 mil at the moment. The amount will expand from time to time depending on our achievement and growth.
% Equity Allocation investor entitle 40%
Expected ROI ROI is so huge as i explained above
Risks and Mitigation To minimize the risks, each single hotel who participate will be studied. it includes the hotel performance and accupancy rate . This is to safe guard traders and company. Not all room can be released by hotel. Room Trading Online will decide or limit the amount based on studies made by our experts. Example hotel abc only can release 50% available to be purchased by Room Traders. The reason it needs to be controlled is to makesure all rooms purchased will be sold later on.

Reinventing Malaysian Fitness Industry

Current Status Concept / Business Plan
Amount Invested Nil
Funding Required RM600,001 to RM1,000,000
Description I am a national karate athlete and a Malaysian MMA champion. I’ve literally grew up around sportsmen and sports as a whole. Today at 26, I’ve loked high and low for a performance-based gym space for me to workout but I can never find one. All we have in KL are the likes of Fitness First and such, with extremely high end prices and simply basic space (hundreds of machines), or the really low cost RM 5 gyms that serve the same purpose, bodybuilding.

In the National Sports Council where I train, we have a gym built for athletes, complete with everything that a performance minded athlete requires. Its not open to the public though.
That’s what i want to create, a fusion between a bodybuilding gym, performance gym and even a martial arts space, because that’s where my expertise lie. Performance gym in the sense of a space where functional workouts are done to cater for the more athletic person. Jumping, climbing, and everything in between. Using my expertise in the field to teach classes even to patrons, and simply show how else one can workout, other than just bench presses all day!

Business Opportunity Like I said above, the problem is that when I have gone out looking for a place to train, I have to make do with the measly equipment around me.

You might say that people in Malaysia are simply not like that, that most of us are oblivious when it comes to things like this. But I’ve been in this scene for the better part of my life, and there are so many people who would profit from something like this.

Especially in the market today! Everyone is concerned about healthy living and such. Working out has become such a fad, compared to say even 10 years ago. Being a personal trainer, I’ve had all kinds of clients, from kids to old men to stay-at-home moms who want to get fit simply because that what people talk about nowadays.

Revenue / Business Model My biggest thing is that ill be different from the others. Take a business like Flycycle, the offered something different to the public and they succeeded in making returns. Just like that, offering a different kind of gym space and classes purely training with the resistance band would be sure to turn some heads.

Also locating somewhere near Bukit Jalil would mean we would attract a whole lot of athletes as well, but this is still in planning. Im still looking at other places like Damansara and Solaris Dutamas. But venue will be a solid way that we could make money from.

The appearance! Sometimes gyms just serve their purpose, some equipment and that’s it. Although I’m all for it, from a business point of view, its gonna be how it looks to the outside world. With all my contacts in the sporting industry, I can be sure to make the gym look really good and appealing, like the front of a Nike Concept store I might add. Aren’t we all really tempted to at least take a peek.

Management Team There is no management team to speak of. I do however have a few names in mind that would be able to help with the management of the gym. Being with the national karate team, Im constantly surrounded by athletes and management staff and have already bounced countless ideas off of them.
Company Background This a brand new venture. Coming from personal training, I think this is the next logical step.
Funding Milestone Rm600,000 to RM 1,000,000.

The funds will be used to, first and foremost rent a space. After which will be renovation and buying the equipment to fill it up. For a small gym, equipment cant reach the RM100,000 mark. So for the plan that I have in mind I’m looking to even triple that figure.

I expect to be up and running by mid to the third quarter of next year, should everything go according to plan.
Advertising will also burn a huge hole in the finances. I want to get it out there that a gym such as this exists.

Websites and social media planning as well.

% Equity Allocation 10%-15%
Expected ROI ROI about 40%-50% in 5 to 7 years.
Risks and Mitigation Risks are that there are many gyms in the Klang Valley. Advertising will have to be strong to get it through to the public.
Exit Strategies Selling. That, is in my mind the safest and easiest way to exit.
