The main service for investors is to create the opportunity to invest in the most promising start-ups from different fields of activity. However, it is certainly possible to offer other related services with high added value for investors. What additional services can be offered to investors before the transaction, in the process of its preparation and after the investment transaction in the start-up (start-ups)?
I will begin by remarking that in my opinion, in order to ensure that all our proposals fit into a single logical chain, it is very important to proceed from a common understanding of the essence of the Boostr business model that we will come up with.
For me, the most convincing is the description of Boostr's business model as a "supermarket of start-ups", because it gives an opportunity to look at Boostr from an unexpected side and add features borrowed not from the world of investment but from the world of retail trade - the world with which it or otherwise all people on earth come into contact.
And before opening a new supermarket, you should make sure that there is a large selection of goods on the shelves and that a crowd of buyers will gather for the opening.
Here I am talking about a crowd of buyers, that is, investors. What do they do in trade in order to increase the number of loyal customersDistribute loyalty cards (discount, discount, etc.)
Based on this analogy, I thought that it would be a good idea to release such Boostr loyalty cards for investors and start distributing them now.
Moreover, these cards can be designed for individuals (business angels, and if it is decided to develop crowdinvesting - and for a wider audience) and for corporate investors.
And the statistics of issuing these cards will attract start-ups, too, since if startups know that there will be a lot of buyers in the "supermarket," they will understand that the chances of being "sold" will increase.
To understand the scope of the problem, let's talk about numbers. So, Boostr at start can not have less than 100 startups (otherwise there will not be adequate statistics for investing).
How much should you attract investors in the first few days? Well, probably, a minimum of two hundred (as we will assume that every second investor will leave without "buying".
So, if the offer is accepted, then before launching Boostr it is necessary to distribute at least 200 loyalty cards (better, of course, more, I think that ideally we need at least 500).
It's complicated. But if there are no loyalty cards at all, how can you calculate the number of investors who will come to Boostr in the first days. And if you do not convince startups that hundreds of investors will appear immediately after the start of boostr, then a hundred slaves will not be registered either.
Of course, it will be necessary to decide how these cards are distributed, who can receive them and what benefits they can give.
After investing in a startup investor is interested to maximize the value of it. And crowdsourcing might be a good tool to increase the value of startups. Hence all investors can receive the offer to use crowdsourcing service for their portfolio startups after the deals on preferred conditions.
