Description Chomp Chomp is the first to start the concept of Italian Street Food in Johor Bahru, starting from bazaar in 2015. Currently we are now operating on a food truck since 2016 and we are the first to present the Italian food using the food truck in Johor Bahru.

Chomp Chomp serve authentic Italian cuisine from appetisers, pastas, main course and desserts with affordable pricing (RM5. 50-RM30) . We are now looking to expand the concept in a restaurant and will include Modern European cuisine as well.

Business Opportunity Based on our research, not many Italian restaurants in Johor Bahru are Halal certified. We are focused on having a Halal restaurant that serves Italian food to cater with the masses. We offer range of Italian food that are reasonably priced with high quality and rightly portioned.

We have found a suitable location (Bandar Seri Alam) that cover residential, offices and universities especially working professionals from nearby private hospital from short working distance. Currently there are no Italian restaurants around the vicinity of the proposed location.

The Executive Chef has twelve years of experience working in fine dining restaurants in Singapore, with his expertise and innovative culinary skills a plus for Chomp Chomp.

Chomp Chomp has already has its own base of customers in Johor Bahru area since we are operating on a food truck.

Revenue / Business Model Chomp Chomp will sell pastas, main courses, snacks, sandwiches, burgers, desserts and beverages. We will also include modern European cuisine to compliment with Italian dishes.

We will focus on having a minimum of 45 covers for lunch, average of RM15 per plate and 65 covers for dinner, average RM35 per plate.

We will serve set lunches and dinners besides ala carte, and we will include snacks that are profitable such as Churros and Mozzarella fries which are popular when we sell those items on our food truck.

We will sell our own brand of bottled tomato sauce for pasta and also our signature housemade beef meatballs frozen and packed.

We will liaise with companies and schools to conduct a cooking masterclass and team building session in the restaurant to add up our source of income.

Description We basically retail n wholesale on indian and general fashion/imitation Jewelry. Our business model operates on carnivals that is held in malls, convention centre and open space by organisers. Its becoming a trend for consumer to wait and shop during this time. There are approximately 10 to 12 carnivals in a year all over malaysia. The crowd is huge.

Jimmy Gym Fitness

Project Title Jimmy Gym Fitness will be the McFit (Europe’s largest fitness chain) of Southeast Asia. The first true high quality low cost fitness chain in this region.
Current Status Concept / Business Plan
Amount Invested A lot of time
Funding Required RM2,000,001 to RM3,000,000
Description The Jimmy Gym’s concept is a clone of Germany’s McFit. Europe’s largest fitness chain with more than 1.7 Million members and a revenue of 450 Million USD. Jimmy Gym will be Malaysia’s first high-quality fitness studio chain that opens 24/7. Jimmy Gym Fitness will prove that an affordable Gym in Malaysia doesn’t have to look cheap with old equipment and an untidy atmosphere. The founder has a German work ethic and implements German quality standards into this concept. The main features of a typical Jimmy Gym studio will be new modern Equipment, round the clock opening hours, modern and stylish Gym atmosphere and a membership enables access to all Jimmy Gym Fitness studios. This all for an unbeatable monthly membership fee of only 50 RM. Everything is transparent and everyone will have the opportunity to get a free trial without any obligations. The quality will speak for itself. Jimmy Gym wants to give every Southeastasian the opportunity to workout and live a healthier and better-looking life.
Business Opportunity If you want to workout in a fitness studio in Malaysia and Southeast Asia you have the choice between an expensive fancy fitness studio with high-quality equipment and other amenities that are not necessary for workouts like a pool or a sauna or you can go to a cheap and small Gym where the equipment is often rundown in a smelly atmosphere. Fitness chains like McFit in Europe or Planet Fitness in the USA and many other chains in these parts of the world have shown that stylish and well maintained large fitness studios don’t have to be expensive. There is nothing like those chains in Malaysia. Jimmy Gym Fitness will change this. The Asian fitness market is very small in comparison to its western counterparts. But with rising development membership in sport and fitness clubs rise as well in direct correlation with the development status of a country. Therefore the Malaysian and ASEAN markets offer great potential for fitness chains, especially in the low-cost sector. Jimmy Gym Fitness will offer the best value for money ratio and will be a through and through a positive product.
Revenue / Business Model There are two main revenue streams. The first stream will be the memberships income. There will be a transparent membership model which consist of two pillars. A 12 Months membership will cost 50 RM/month and a 6 months membership will cost 65 RM/month. The second stream will come from the vending machines in the studios that sell refreshment drinks and workout supplements.
It is clear that the lower the membership fee the more members are needed to turn a profit. Experiences from the western chains have shown that many people are willing to pay for the opportunity to visit a fitness studio without actually going there. Because of the low membership fees and the fact that it is widely recognised that a membership in a fitness club is a positive thing people always want to have the chance to go to workout. On average McFit in Europe has more than 7000 members per studio with a membership fee of 20 €/month. Jimmy Gym calculates with around 1500-1700 members per studio to break-even.
Management Team One Man Show.
The founder (German/Malaysian) has a master’s degree in Asian studies, a German Fitness Trainer B-Licence and a German Project Manager certificate.
Company Background The founder (a long-term member of McFit) noticed on a family vacation in Johor Bahru a few years ago that there is no similar fitness chain like McFit in Malaysia he also noticed that many studios in Malaysia are managed poorly and that there is a lot of room for improvements. Since then the idea for Jimmy Gym Fitness was born to lift the Malaysian and Southeastasian fitness market to a new level. Unfortunately, a fitness studio of this scope is not funded with a few Dollars and the founder has no rich relatives who could fund this concept. All he has is his brain, German work ethic and knowledge about fitness to realise this project. With the right partner, this can grow to a billion Ringgit company.
Funding Milestone Seed Investment (500k -800k USD) is needed depending on the location and the equipment to build the first studio and to proof the concept.
Series A (500k-800k USD) will fund the second studio.
Series B (1 Million – 1.6 Million USD) will fund studio 3 and 4.
Further expansion will be financed with loans and cash flow.
Because it is impossible to patent a concept like this, fast expansion is needed to establish Jimmy Gym Fitness as the original and the gold standard of low-cost fitness studios in Southeast Asia. 200 to 300 Studios in the Southeast Asia and the Asia-Pacific region in 20 years is the long-term goal for Jimmy Gym Fitness.
% Equity Allocation 15%
Risks and Mitigation The Key to success is to reach the magic membership number to break even. Because a single customer in a fitness studio produces very little costs every membership sold on top of the breakeven number is almost pure profit. A fitness studio is a product that the ordinary person knows and understands. Marketing is therefore the key to let the people know that an affordable Gym is finally available to everyone. To fight off competitors who will occur once Jimmy Gym proved that this concept is profitable Jimmy Gym Fitness will always maintain high German quality standards with its equipment, staff and service. Offering high quality at an affordable price will always be a good selling point and reduces therefore the risk of a business failing.
Exit Strategies The founder is open to all kinds of proposals from investors for their exit strategy. These have to be discussed further.

Jireh’s Hope

Project Title Jireh’s Hope – Impact driven publication that features social enterprises, NGOs, CSR, and sustainable initiatives in Malaysia.
Current Status Pre-Revenue
Amount Invested RM3,000
Funding Required RM300,000 or less
Description We exclusively feature social enterprises, NGOs, and sustainable initiatives.

As we grow our reader base, we want to work with big brands to feature their CSR initiatives.

Business Opportunity Public limited companies spend millions on CSR initiatives. They publish this information publicly through their annual & sustainability reports. However, this information is rarely available when you perform a general Google search. This is a missed opportunity for the brands themselves.

We’re growing a reader base that has an interest in social & environmentally conscious initiatives. As such, we hope to create featured written & video (in the future) content for such brands. By doing so, we hope to drive more value to their CSR initiatives, and thus, strengthen brand loyalty.

Currently there are over 900 publicly listed companies in Malaysia. It’s mandatory for them to have sustainable initiatives. We could potentially end up working & creating content for all these companies.

Revenue / Business Model We have a free model where we create content for NGOs & SEs. The articles are written by our team, and published without their approval.

We charge big brands & companies to create specialised & featured content. Brands that pay for articles/video will have more control over the tone & the content in general. Furthermore, we’ll also tailor it to maximise branding value. We’ll also run social media ads to provide max. exposure for the created content.

We want to start charging brands Rm500 for a start but we can increase this price as the brand grows. We can eventually charge anywhere from RM2,500 – 6,000 depending on the reader base.

Management Team Ajay – Founder, Writer & Web Developer
Abigail Tan – Freelance Writer
Jo Ee Hoo – Freelance Social media manager
Company Background Started this on 5th December 2017. Been operational for the past 7 months. Generated close to 40K PAGE VIEWS.

The focus has been on page views as we want to get the word out there. We’re actively reaching out to brands & companies at the moment.

Funding Milestone We’re asking for RM125K for 16% in the company. This money would be used primarily for digital marketing, hiring 1 full time writer, and a team of freelance writers. We plan to hit 250K page views end of first year. And realistically, we hope to write 40 paid articles for our clients. Best case scenario we charge clients RM2,500 per article.
