Basically move on to the next job that's Essentially the nuts and bolts of it Nice interface very simple so you can Post the job you can set the job you can Communicate you can do the job you can Post photos you can do payment you'll Sign off and you're all done you're done Yeah pretty much now the reason I'm Saying that is because there's a lot of These things around Rome So basically what these other platforms Do is they put trades people in touch With people they're looking for quotes Yeah what we've done is we've targeted The property manager Market you haven't Gone for the mum or the dad that wants One job done you've gone for the people Who manage lots of properties right who Are doing maintenance all the time is That a correct answer correct Where does this entrepreneurial Influence come from well my family is Probably the anticism business I'm the Only one that really has ever done Anything of worth in the entrepreneurial Space and John what about you my Father's been in business for as long as I've been alive and has been very Successful at it what sort of business Uh he had a giftware business and is now In toys always yes so who is your dad Many still oh Yeah we know Manny he's the first ever Australian World entrepreneur correct

How is it being this Well a billionaire Um it hasn't really changed life for me At all Um self-made I'm doing things myself uh Very good to have a father like that to Go to business advice for but this is Something that's completely not in the Field that he's got any experience in so You've got to knock him off Great success story Tell me about how them business model Works okay so basically it's a Subscription model and the reason we've Done that is because we're targeting the Business to business market right we Believe the longevity of the customers Will be there so a property management Office we're looking at a fee of 150 a Month Yeah and for the Trade Services it's 50 A month right I can say strata managers are also a Really different market and and building Management because building managers Strata managers property managers so if You're that good and that different you Must have traction to prove it what's Your Traction in the market well we've Only just just launched the product this Week We basically wanted to build our Technology out first As it's a business to business product

We can't really prototype it and give it To people because we'll get one chance And we'll be thrown to the curb so we've Invested really heavily to build it up To where it is How much have you put into this business 750 Grand wow You have put that's just a moment Silence please You have put 750 000 into this business Correct okay well that's serious Investment yes walk me through where We're going to be in the next few years Okay so basically we're looking at Seventy thousand dollars income to Finish out this financial year 2019 Financial Year we're looking at one and A half million dollars turnover with Approximately 540 profit and I just Walked through that so 1.5 million Turnover 540k profit correct the Assumption there is there's an average Of 10 trades per office and the way We've done those figures is 30 offices Were already be on board by beginning of Financial year 2019 yep and then we're Only adding 25 offices a month that's Pretty good then so we've been very Conservative it is refreshing for a Company that's using a tech platform to Come in and be pitching positive cash Flow well done yeah very good our goal Is that even at this simple modeling by The time we have 125 Property Management

Offices at that minimum we'll be break Even and cash flow positive and when you Say 125 offices their individual offices That you have to sell to correct there's Not a lot of hard leg work to go walk in Show them what's going on and say and we Just want to sign you up if we sign up The big organizations we get them on Board There's nowhere they're changing because This is going to save them a huge amount Of time Why are you guys going to win These are everywhere everywhere the main Thing you've got to understand is Property managers spend 50 percent of Their day on the phone trying to call Trades we're not targeting the mum and Dad who want their house painted once Every five years no no this is a Constant burn for them so they give you A nap you go here's my job click and Then the communication happens between The tenant and the trading there's Calendars they consent they organize and For 750 Grand you've bought that Function that exists that happens right Now it happens right now I'm curious to Know how quickly you're going to get the Tradies on and how you're going to Because it's only going to be as good as The quality of the tradies we sent out a Cold email to 4 000 trades people and We've got 250 sign up within three days

So we're not worried about the trades People they're so frustrated with what They've got at the moment and if we're Giving them the opportunity to work with Property management offices for 50 bucks A month how can they go wrong so let's Assume this works you've got zero Revenue so you haven't really tested Your system you've put a few Transactions through and it looks like It pays and the money arrives in the Right place yep so we've got to test the Software we've got to support it then We've got to sell it at both sides and Both sides of the marketplace have to Grow together to ensure success because If you grow one side or not the other You'll quickly die so you've got all of That risk out there cool so how do you Then value your business at two and a Half million with all that risk [Music] But what we thought I mean and you guys Are probably going to have your own Opinions on this of course Really really Funnily enough we looked at our first Year and what we've done is we've been Really conservative so what we said is 540 Grand it's 4.6 times multiple the Average on a software business they Reckon is 5.7 so we thought we'll give a Bit of a discount and that's how we came Up with evaluation yes it's like okay

What do we do but yeah very very Refreshing honest answer well done So let's cut to the chase what do you Need from sharks do you need any Particular sharks which sharks do you Want what do you need apart from money Take the American shark take the American shark he's good in America I Think this is this is the local plus not Just a local play I mean we've already started Negotiations with people overseas So that's that's interesting The property management business is very Efficient in the US I'm stunned that there isn't something Like this there already but you you know There isn't anything well we've Researched it heavily but I'm curious You've got a lot of the answers so I Want to know what gaps you think you Need At the end of the day if you think you Can add value to what we're doing that's What we want and if you've got some Connection in the US that's a giant Market that's just waiting to be eaten Up You guys are so likable the the problem With me is I can never get my head Around the valuations of tech businesses Like fair enough it's just it's just how I work fair enough I'm out thank you thank you
