Connecting Local Entrepreneurs with Global Investors

Online employment and executive search startup

Business Model

Talentsbay serves as a platform connecting hiring companies, headhunters, referrers and job candidates. Hiring companies and headhunters advertise for free job opportunities on Talentsbay but offer fixed or negotiable fees based entirely on free market forces to third parties for selected referrals of relevant candidates. The third-parties are partners of Talentsbay and may choose to be serious full-time entrepreneurs by becoming business licensees of Talentsbay or be part-time commission earners by registering for free as affiliates.

Talentsbay is an attractive and compelling business opportunity because it serves to fill a gap in recruitment solutions currently available in the market. At present, on the one end, there are headhunters and recruitment companies offering targeted executive search services, which generally produce good and relevant candidates but are expensive; on the other end, there are job websites which are much cheaper to use but which tend to yield poor outcome in the form of attracting many irrelevant candidates. Talentsbay serves to eliminate the problems and offers the benefits in both channels; i.e., it offers relevant and good candidates at reasonably low fees as determined by a free market, making the presently economically-inefficient talent recruitment industry an economically efficient one.

Target Market

1. Hiring companies, which will buy prepaid credits to pay to third-party partners of Talentsbay who have referred relevant candidates to the companies.
2. Headhunters and entrepreneurs wishing to start a headhunting business, who will buy area or basic licenses to be part of the Talentsbay network, and prepaid credits as a means of paying others in the network.

Investment Offer

The investment of RM1.5 million is sought to cover primarily Talentsbay’s website development (about RM200,000), other start-up expenses and operating capital of the company (Start-up Expenses – Talentsbay), targeted to begin in June 2012.

Financial Plan

Talentsbay is projected to make an operating profit by the 4th month of operation, based on a Sales Projection plan (Talentsbay – Sales Projection) and Profit and Loss Projection (12-Month Profit & Loss Projection – Talentsbay) as attached.

Expansion Plan

Talentsbay, being a web-based business, is not limited by geographic constraints and can be duplicated worldwide. Partners can be recruited anywhere in the world just as they are in Malaysia. The first countries targeted for expansion after Malaysia will be primarily English-speaking nations such as Singapore (2012), The Philippines (2013), India (2013), Australia and New Zealand (2013), United States of America and Canada (2014), United Kingdom and English-speaking Continental Europe (2014).

A Chinese version of the site will be developed from the year 2013 with a view to expanding the business to the Greater China region. The site will also be translated to more regional languages such as Bahasa Indonesia, Thai and Vietnamese from the year 2014 for the purpose of entering these markets.

Exit Plan

The exit plan for the investor is an option to sell back his or her equity, in part or its entirety, to the founders and management of Talentsbay at a mutually agreed price. The management of Talentsbay plans to list the company by the 7th year of operation. The investor may, therefore, also choose to harvest his or her investment then.

Channel K – Solution for Future Karaoke Media Consumption

Objective

To provide karaoke entertainment to home users and karaoke operators at a lower maintenance cost and increases customer satisfaction.
To support country’s anti-piracy measures and combat karaoke piracy market.
To catapult Malaysian music industry into an advanced and safe technology era.
To increase revenue collection for PPM (Public Performance Malaysia) and RECORD LABELS.
The project is called Channel K. We are looking at RM5mil investment to cover the development, advances, operation, sales and marketing for 4 Years with an achievable RM145mil returns in revenue in the 4 Year.

Today’s music market is reign by syndicates and piracy. We believe with an introduction of our product in the market, we will able to reduce piracy and increase collection for the music industry, at least not the music business overall but the karaoke format.

Channel K is definitely a winning project because its concept for being the 1st in the world. The will be no more physical product ie CD, VCD & DVD in the next few years to come. It is the new era of digital music world. On the up side, we are the market leader because we will have the exclusivity for 4 years (1 year development & 3 years commercial exploitation) from PPM and record labels.

Malaysian consumption for karaoke content is rather high. There are more than 1 million households in Malaysia have karaoke set at home. Once the system is ready, we could even introduce and bring it to other countries like Singapore, Indonesia, Thailand, Philippines, Taiwan, Hong Kong, China etc.

I am the founder of the product. All this while, I have been dealing with PPM, service provider, developer etc via xxx Sdn Bhd which is my company. xxx Group are established to market the products I created. I am willing to allocate 30% ordinary share to the investor into the subsidiary, xxx Sdn Bhd but first, investor will get to recoup the full RM5mil investment from our profit before the split.

Currently, we are developing the hardware and finalizing our agreement with PPM and all the record labels. On schedule, the system will be ready for UAT by March 2012 and ready to market by June 2012.

The project risk is minimal because of exclusivity and the good system. The only risk is execution risk to get this project launch on time. For this, we will work hard and smart to make sure we go to market on time with great product.

World Peace Rally

The World Peace Rally is the biggest traveling Trade, Industry, Tourism and Commerce exhibition in history. The word “Peace” is an acronym for “Promoting Europe Asia Commercial Enterprise” and Malaysia is the host and organiser for 34 other participating countries.

1. Objectives
1.1. To produce the biggest traveling exhibition in history, promoting Malaysian companies and government services throughout Asia and Europe;
1.2. To administer and oversee the most number of peace and community welfare projects ever conducted by a single event in history;
1.3. To create peripheral activities of maximum interest to international mass media, including sporting events, live entertainment, travel documentaries and demonstrations of ethnic cuisine, arts, crafts and culture;
1.4. To obtain the widest possible international audience following the entire journey, so as to offer participating advertisers, exhibitors and sponsors, the best value for money international marketing opportunities in history;
1.5. To create a world record for the biggest fund raising by a single event in history and to disburse those funds, without deduction, for the benefit of disadvantaged women and children throughout all countries en route;
1.6. To create a franchise system representative of every country en route, requiring each Franchisee to coordinate pre-designed activities within their national borders.

2. The Traveling Exhibitions.
2.1. The company has designed totally unique mobile exhibitions capable of catering for up to 500 exhibitors per vehicle, utilizing the most modern multi-media technology available;
2.2. The company has relations with commercial interests in most countries en route who will be invited to join the convoy with similarly designed vehicles from their country, following the Malaysian convoy to our final destination;
2.3. From these mobile exhibition vehicles supported by a number of static exhibitions in each city, the company expects incalculable multi-lateral trade to occur between all countries and their exhibitors. For Malaysia alone, we have estimated over US$10 billion in additional Government and corporate revenue resulting from the event;
2.4. The company will register world-wide intellectual property over the entire concept and all other aspects of the event so as to provide a 20 year protection over the concept and its mechanical implementation;
2.5. In consideration of our “PEACE” theme franchisees will be instructed to co-host and share their exhibition facilities with neighbouring countries, so as to provide greater diversity of national companies and all other aspects of the event including cuisine and travel documentaries;
2.6. This strategy is recommended primarily for improving political relations with neighbouring countries in the name of Peace, international co-operation and the development of multi-lateral trade;
2.7. Via our unique designs and marketing strategies, approximately 1,000 Malaysian companies and Government Departments representing Malaysian tourism, trade, industry and commerce, will be exhibiting their products and services to a conservatively estimated 1.4 million live visitors and a world-wide television audience exceeding 3 billion people;
2.8. Never in history has such a massive multi-national, multi-lateral trade exhibition ever been held with such a wide international audience.

3. Peace Initiatives
3.1. We will work directly with the United Nations and all major NGOs involved in promoting world peace via world-wide connections already in place and waiting;
3.2. Franchisees in each country will be invited to nominate specific peace initiatives of their choice subject to our endorsement and later, in conjunction with those NGOs;
3.3. The history of organizations involved in peace initiatives indicates a distinct preference for tangible structural monuments of various types. The company however, has the view that welfare projects and multi-lateral trade provide longer lasting and more effective benefits to peace in a region. The company is of the strong view that poverty and lack of education causes conflict and a peace monument costing as much as US$25,000 is of no benefit to the population;

4. Community Welfare
4.1. Preliminary discussions have occurred with similar and different NGOs regarding community welfare activities in over 300 cities and communities en route;
4.2. In order to obtain company endorsement and funding of a project, the franchisee and NGOs involved must demonstrate the ability of the project to provide long term sustainable improvements in living standards, education and health for the community involved;
4.3. Each franchisee will be responsible for nominating locations and the types of activities most beneficial to each community, in conjunction with their preferred NGO, and subject to the company’s approval;
4.4. In many cases, these activities cannot be funded and concluded during our journey. They may either be pre-arranged or conducted after our departure.
4.5. In any case, documentaries will be produced of the initiatives for future world-wide distribution.
4.6. Payment for the costs of community welfare and charity work will generally not be possible until after our event. However, details of all planned projects will be available for world-wide screening before and at the time of each national concert and telethon;
4.7. From funds raised during the telethons and concerts, allocations to selected NGOs will be made on the basis of previously recommended projects and is expected to average more than US$100,000 per project or US$10 million per country.
4.8. Projects which benefit the most number of people and disadvantaged women and children will be given priority.

5. Mass Media
5.1. The Company is guaranteed the largest television, radio and press coverage in Malaysia’s history.
5.2. Via its network with the world’s largest and most respected sports and adventure television production house, and with two of the world’s biggest networks of government and private media groups, the Company can guarantee potential audiences exceeding 3.5 billion people in over 60 countries around the world.
5.3. With its intention to produce over 89 documentaries of our journey, the Company offers sponsors and corporate participants, an historically high advertising avenue;
5.4. Taking into account the number of minutes of world-wide broadcasting with the constant exposure of all major participants, the costs of corporate and government participation is less than 1% of the cost incurred in conventional international advertising and marketing and more than 10 times as effective;
5.5. We are advised verbally that each documentary of no less than 24 minutes will be televised world-wide.

6. Fund Raising
6.1. In 1985, before the advent of modern internet and telecommunications, “Live Aid” raised US$284 million from telethons and concerts in four (4) locations. Our target is far in excess of that figure;
6.2. During our journey and concentrating on our final destination, we will be operating concerts and telethons in every country en route. These telethons have been meticulously planned to maximize audience participation and resulting fund raising;
6.3. Our connections have also indicated that these telethons will be broadcast world-wide although because of the number of countries involved and the time differences, they may be edited into one or two days of broadcasting;
6.4. Preliminary discussions and negotiations have already begun to obtain guidance from some of the world’s most successful fund raising organizations and individuals. Names cannot at this stage, be made public;
6.5. Concerts will involve a selection of contemporary and cultural performances, designed to maximize television ratings and audience participation. Mostly, entrance fees will be minimal with an expectation of minimal fees paid to performing artists where necessary;

7. The Future
7.1. The first event traverses 34 countries in a westerly direction from Malaysia to England;
7.2. Future journeys will occur every 2 or 3 years taking different routes covering most countries on the planet and taking to the sea and air;
7.3. The World Expos began in 1851 and continue triennially to this day. The World Peace Rally will supplement or replace those events;
7.4. World-wide intellectual property registrations will prevent similar competitive events for up to 20 years.

8. The Founders
8.1. A small group of people have invested over 4 years in developing the concept to this point –
Mr. xxx – an Australian citizen, retired chartered accountant, international marketing consultant, living in Malaysia since 1995, world travel, full time;
Mdm xxx – restaurateur, world travel, part time;
Mr. xxx – businessman, business development consultant; world travel, casual;
Mr xxx – businessman, import export operator, world travel, casual;
Pn. xxx – retired professional architect, casual.
Mr xxx – IT specialist, businessman, CAD consultant and trainer, world travel, casual.

9. Financials
9.1. Exhaustive research has been conducted on revenue and expenditure and budgets and cash flow projections up to the completion of the first event scheduled for September 2013, indicate the following –
9.2. Total budgeted capital expenditure – RM5 million;
Total budgeted operating expenditure – RM35 million
Total budgeted recoverable expenditure – RM30 million
Total budgeted revenues – RM500 million
9.3. A 4 month and a 2 year Action Plan indicate revenues to exceed costs within 4 to 12 months of commencement.
9.4. For an investor with access to specific government authorities, an equity up to 51% is available.
9.5. Funding required from the investor may vary between RM500,000 and RM5 million as supported by Cash Flow Forecasts, with equity adjusted by negotiation.
9.6. With a 5+ times annual RoI, we expect the investor to remain for the long term, but buy-outs can be negotiated.
9.7. Once intellectual properties are registered, we foresee no risks. No competition exists. Costs of advertising and exhibiting are less than 1% of alternate advertising costs and incapable of being duplicated without breaching intellectual rights.
9.8. Incalculable returns exist from a future world-wide public float.

Liquid Detergent Vending Machine

Introduction

This proposal entails in the Design & Development, Testing & Commissioning, Manufacture & Fabrication of The Liquid Detergent Vending Machine for its subsequent commercialisation with the concept for the consumer, entrepreneur, commercial & industrial as well as for social and environmental benefits.

The Marketing & Promotional Pitch

1. General Customers & Consumers,
2. Aspiring Entrepreneurs,
3. Manufacturing & Industrialist Sector,
4. Environment & Society….., ALL in one GO….!

The Value Proposition of the LDVM concept

1. Our Unique Selling Proposition,
2. True Value-for-Money to consumer,
3. Customer Option to blend products at no further cost to them,
4. The ‘Wow-Factor’.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

1. Project Title: The Liquid Detergent Vending Machine (LDVM) –

2. Project Objective: To design, fabricate & test the prototype model of the Liquid Detergent Vending Machine. The ultimate objective is to introduce this technologically innovative LDVM into the market place for commercialisation purposes.

3. Project Description: The Project entails in the Design & Development of the LDVM for its subsequent Commercialisation for Consumer, Entrepreneur, Commercial & Industrial as well as for Social & Environmental benefits.

4. Methodology: The design, fabrication & testing of the Detergent Blending Vessel System that is to be fully incorporated with other working components of the LDVM, all to be housed into a design exterior form.

5. Project Milestone: For the design & development stage of the Liquid Detergent Vending Machine, it is envisage that a period of not exceeding six (6) months is required to realise the final prototype model of the LDVM.

6. Technical Risk: Hardly any technical risk is envisage considering the simplicity or the LDVM concept with regard to its specifications, the design criteria & innovative technology involved, particularly involving the key component of the machine – i.e. The Blending Vessel System.

7. Technology Benchmarking: It can be considered that the LDVM conc pt have somewhat set a benchmark in terms of technological innovation to dispense ‘unfinished’ liquid detergent via the vending machine format, that is unprecedented.

8. Market Size & Demand: Everyone are potential customers for the end-products to be dispensed via the LDVM business model format. The market size locally & globally is humungous. There is a great need for this business concept considering the multiple benefits the LDVM technology have to offer to all, including for benefits to the environment pollution control.

9. Market & Financial Risks: A minimal commercialisation risk is expected to occur considering the absence of any competitor in this business concept. The financial returns even during the commercialisation stage can be self-funding thereby eliminating any financial risk to further proceed onto the progress stages.

10. Product Competitiveness: Having the potential to set a precedent in the technologically innovative LDVM business concept, thus competition (other than the current conventional retail outlets) is apparently absent, with the market left totally for the taking.

11. Potential Revenue Generated: As far-fetched as it may appear, a conservative financial projection to the tune of exceeding RM 200,000,000/= as potential revenue can be generated within less five (5) years after the initial commercialisation stage, and with only a fraction of the said potential revenue is required to finance at the commercialisation stage.

12. Commercial Strategy: The initial target market shall be the segmentation of consumers dwelling in high-rise buildings cum high-density areas A considerable promotional budget shall be set aside to invoke awareness and response of consumers as to the benefits to be enjoyed, as well as to the authorities and general public as to the contribution of this LDVM concept in combating environmental pollution.

Other Notes:

1. We have already registered for Patent & Intellectual Property Rights for this Technology Innovative Invention at the Kuala Lumpur Patent Office or MyIPO. Thus, no Technology Acquisition whatsoever is required to pursue into this business venture.

2. The investment risk is minimal since the goodwill-value of our Intellectual Property Rights is priceless, should any exit strategy is considered.

Vertical Axis Wind Turbine

Amount Invested : RM 230,000

Amount Required : 2-3 Million

Knowledge / Experience Required:

Proposed Investor’s Role: part-time; as mentor; as consultant

Industry: Green

Project Stage: seed, start-up

More Information:

Our inspiration to do Vertical Axis Wind Turbine(VAWT) came from lack of electricity in my village BARIO, Sarawak. It is a good investment as government has been spending loads of money to supply diesel subsidy to rural school generator till now which sometime failed to arrive to desinated location. There is 700 rural school in Sarawak and number will be growing.(not forgetting rural village, army post, clinic, resident office, etc.) Meaning to say consumption of diesel will continue to increase. We wish to reduce government burden by suggesting to them to use our VAWT. In long term, it will not only save their money, but the amount saved could be channel to school infrastructure or books. We have confident in our product as we hand made, researched and surveyed ourselves. We even have potential customer from standalone temple, Sabah\’s island, rural swiftlet and latest, we managed to contact Cambodia and Brunei interested party. We actually complete 5 rnd in 2 month before the final prototype. Currently awaits Ministry of Science Technology Innovation approval of first project grant. However, the grant do not cover transport, salary, rental etc. Only cost of raw material. We hope to have a long term solution for our energy shortage in the future lets say if we install the VAWT on highway(north south), seaside(can buffer strong freak wind), palm plantation, roof top(for singapore HDB). Europe is already having electric car. PROTON is expecting to came out with their first electric car in 2013. Are we(Malaysia) fully prepared yet? We are confident of our product as we studied the efficiency during our trial and error process. Our world is getting sicker every second. We tend to forget that we are at the world mercy. Green Energy is the future.

New Business Model for Nutraceutical Industry

Executive Summary:

The nutraceutical industry, including herbal products in Malaysia is worth in excess of RM 2 billion. Most of the nutraceutical products are currently being marketed through either retail or network marketing channels. However, the retail model is fraught with intense competition, constant price war and reducing profit margin to both the distributors, wholesalers and retailers themselves.

Network marketing channel, on the other hand, suffers from exorbitant pricing due to multiple level of downline over-riding. Online sales of nutraceutical products in this region, is unfortunately, still immature and slow. A new business model that avert all the problems associated with the current conventional models is seriously needed for long-term success and sustainability. In addition, the new business model will provide 5 key advantages to both the consumers and business owner:

Key Advantage No.1 : Tremendous Savings & Convenience to Customers (products are sold at 40-50% lower than retail price)
Key Advantage No.2 : Greater Profit Margin for Business Owners (at least additional 10-20% more than existing competitors)
Key Advantage No.3 : Low Operational Cost
Key Advantage No.4 : Powerful Marketing Strategies for Massive Consumer Conversion
Key Advantage No.5 : Avert all Problems and Challenges Associated with Current Conventional Models (Competition Becomes Irrelevant)

Pink Taxi – Cab For and By Women

An Business Opportunity for “Pink taxi” is not exactly a taxi but a hybrid between public transport and private car ownership. It is a members-only “private hire” driven by women for women only. Also seniors and handicap passengers. “Pink Taxi” existed in both western places like UK, Russia, Japan, also more conservative places like Iran, Dubai and Turkey. So the need for women to travel safely is universal

Business Opportunity”Pink tax” is not exactly a taxi but a hybrid between public transport and private car ownership. It is a members-only “private hire” driven by women for women only. Also seniors and handicap passengers. This idea is not brand new and various forms of “Pink Taxi” existed in both western places like UK, Russia, Japan, also more conservative places like Iran, Dubai and Turkey. So the need for women to travel safely is universal.

Meanwhile, in the Malaysian contex, there are a few real issues:
1. poor public transport network
2. relatively expensive to own a car with many hidden costs;
3. crime happening to women, whether taking public transport or driving own car (eg. being attacked in car parks)
4. growing congestion, loss of productive hours all add to stress of women’s lives

Benefits of “Pink Taxi”:
1. Enable women to 1. travel safely, 2. conveniently and 3. comfortably.
2. create much needed work opportunities for women;
3. Reduce congestion in city/ greener to environment;
4. Reduce opportunities for crimes against women;
5. Increase the quality of life and productivity of women;

“Taxi” may be a politically sensitive industry, so “Pink” is working around the system. However, I will also be meeting some relevant authorities to seek their blessings.

Why is transport industry a good business despite the general gloom and doom scenario?
Poor management and execution are the main reasons. Otherwise, transport companies can be profitable as the need remains constant – unlike technology which can be made redundant overnight.
Meanwhile, efficiently run companies, from airlines to ships to taxi, can make good profits. A shining example is the Comfort Delgro group in Singapore which manages more than 1,000 taxis in Singapore alone. They are so successful that they had bought taxi companies in UK (listed on stock exchange) and now begins to buy up taxi companies across Chinese cities.

While that is how high a successful taxi company can get, Pink taxi is motivated more by social ROI (safety of women) and seek to be profitable and sustainable, not just “break-even”. The success of “Pink” will depend very much on management and gaining the rapport and support of female population in Klang Valley. Of 8mil residents in Klang Valley, half of them being female and we are only targeting 1% of the females, i.e. 40,000 potential members.
