So far its a team of two, just me and my cofounder. We outsource any other addition functions
B2B2B We charge between 15% to 40% per transaction depending on the nature and construct.
We transacted over $70,000 between 2022 September and October 2023. We aim to double the revenue in 2024 and have it more structured.
Currently, we have a $30,000 budget to raise for our team and development for the first half of 2024. We haven’t started making yearly budgets as yet
We have brought in over 140 African Americans in the past year and are aiming to double that amount
Ask and what will be offered in return
We are asking for Grant Funding between $5000 to $30,000 to further validate our business model and build an MVP. Our offer is BBEEE points and service we can source in-house for sponsors. Another of our offers is an opportunity to build a relation with a promising upcoming startup. We are not offering any equity at the moment.
How the ask will be used
We will direct this to support Software Development, ELF Marketing, and onboarding more curators, hosts plus service providers.
Timeline for development
We aim to have our MVP out by May 2024 before the challenge. Hopefully, you won’t wait for the pitch to start considering us.
