Primer proyecto: Pub

El primero de los proyectos que vamos a valorar y analizar es el pub. Este pub se va a llamar Dublinenses. Se trata de un pub con un estilo de bar irlandés. Estará situado en San Sebastian de los reyes, en una de las calles donde hay bares de este estilo, pero donde el mercado no está saturado.

La clientela a la que optaríamos serían personas de 25 a 45 años, personas con una determinada edad a las que les gusta desconectar, con lo cual será un establecimiento en el que prácticamente todos los días a partir de las 4 de la tarde tendrá afluencia de gente ya que a partir de esa hora se servirían café. Aún así el negocio estaría orientado más al ocio nocturno ya que la mayor parte de sus clientes consumirían por la noche.

El lugar de la situación de nuestro pub seria un sitio estratégico ya que se trata de una calle concurrida por personas de los rangos de edad que buscamos y además es conocida la calle por el ocio nocturno ya que se trata de un lugar donde las viviendas están alejadas. Además en este lugar solo hay otro negocio que podría tener características similares con lo cual podríamos optar a una gran parte de la clientela total.

Para poder optar a dicha clientela nos vamos a basar en el servicio que vamos a ofrecer. Este servicio se basará en unos camareros con experiencia y conocimientos de cocteleria para ofrecer productos de gran calidad así como unas instalaciones nuevas.

Para poder abrir el negocio hemos pensado en hacer una gran inversión al principio ya que nuestro negocio va a necesitar un local de grandes dimensiones. Hemos elegido un local de 320 m^2 de los cuales serian aprovechables 220 m^2. Para adquirir el local tendremos dos posibilidades, la primera de ellas sería comprar el local, para lo que tendríamos que hipotecarnos por unos 3.000 euros mensuales. La segunda opción será la de alquiler, que sería de…...

The Many Faces of Startup Financing

...capital expense, with “the average [lawyer’s] bill for series A financing [being] over $50,000.” With costs mounting at every turn, the next option for an early-stage entrepreneur to consider is a group of individuals who the business owner doesn’t usually know personally via crowdfunding. Crowdfunding is an extremely new form of capital raising, and due to the obscurity of the legal side of this method, it is also unclear what exactly an entrepreneur can or can’t do using this method. Websites such as KickStarter.com have popped up all over the place, but these crowdfunding websites are not true crowdfunding in that they don’t allow business owners to actually sell equity positions in their company. However, they are still a viable option to raise initial capital in the start-up phase in exchange for rewards. Fundable.com notes that the “average successful crowdfunding campaign is $7,000.” While that would hardly get any company off the ground, it could help alleviate a few early expenses. With a solid business plan, an entrepreneur could likely raise significantly more than the average. How extensive a business owner’s network is, specifically their internet-based network, the more successful a crowdfunding campaign tends to be. Social media represents one crucial outlet for making investors aware of your campaign. Studies show that “for every order of magnitude increase in Facebook friends (10, 100, 1000), the probability of success increases dramatically (from 9%-, 20%,......

Crowdfunding

...Crowdfunding is an alternative method of raising money to finance different kind of purposes. The concept of crowdfunding is to gather a large group of people(the crowd) who fund small amounts of money to eventually reach the total amount desirable for financing the purpose. Crowdfunding is used by all kind of people and groups like entrepreneurs, charities, companies and privates. The different purposes wherefore crowdfunding can be used are from raising money to finance a new car or a vacation, making a movie, to the startup of a company or developing an innovative idea. The purpose can be everything, just as long people are willing to invest into the idea. The difference between crowdfunding and traditional fund raising is that crowdfunding needs to attract a large group of people who all donate or invest a (small) amount of money to eventually reach the total amount needed. A traditional finance is mostly done by attracting one or two organizations or businesses who invest the total amount of money needed, it can also be a loan from a bank or other financing institution. I think you can see crowdfunding as getting money from a bank where the bank as intermediate is ruled out. Normally a bank collects money from a lot of different people(their customers savings) and then they loan the money to others who need it. The bank in this role takes all the risk and chooses what to finance and what not. When the bank is ruled out you get crowdfunding...

...SOME PRACTICAL GUIDANCE FOR THE IMPLEMENTATION OF PROPENSITY SCORE MATCHING Marco Caliendo IZA, Bonn Sabine Kopeinig University of Cologne Abstract. Propensity score matching (PSM) has become a popular approach to estimate causal treatment effects. It is widely applied when evaluating labour market policies, but empirical examples can be found in very diverse fields of study. Once the researcher has decided to use PSM, he is confronted with a lot of questions regarding its implementation. To begin with, a first decision has to be made concerning the estimation of the propensity score. Following that one has to decide which matching algorithm to choose and determine the region of common support. Subsequently, the matching quality has to be assessed and treatment effects and their standard errors have to be estimated. Furthermore, questions like ‘what to do if there is choice-based sampling?’ or ‘when to measure effects?’ can be important in empirical studies. Finally, one might also want to test the sensitivity of estimated treatment effects with respect to unobserved heterogeneity or failure of the common support condition. Each implementation step involves a lot of decisions and different approaches can be thought of. The aim of this paper is to discuss these implementation issues and give some guidance to researchers who want to use PSM for evaluation purposes. Keywords. Propensity score matching; Treatment effects; Evaluation; Sensitivity analysis; Implementation 1.......

...Five things I wish I'd known before starting a crowdfunding campaign The Sweetman brothers are fast approaching their £50,000 social enterprise crowdfunding target. How are they doing it? • How to succeed with your crowdfunding campaign • The smartest urban crowdfunding projects – in pictures • Why crowdfunding now sets the trends Ambitious crowdfunders need to stack the cards in their favour, and there are five ways to enhance your chances of success. Photograph: Pegaz/Alamy 1. The right platform There are five types of crowdfund: equity, donation, reward, debt/peer-to-peer lending, and royalty (which takes a percentage of future revenue in return for investment). To succeed, the type has to match your ethos, organisation and brand. At Stickyboard, we opted for equity raise using Crowdcube's platform. We offer community web development, so being owned by the community fitted our principles. The platform you choose will be the shopfront for your campaign, so take a look round to get a feel for projects and perhaps sign up to a few to see how often they send newsletters and promote projects. 2. Focus on why you're a good investment This point took us a while to realise. We started by spending more time saying why what we did was great rather than pointing out why investing in us would be awesome. Focus on how an investor benefits (eg, EIS tax relief, rewards, return after what period), and how you know they will see those benefits (eg, your USP, years of experience, track......

Introduction to Crowdfunding

...AN INTRODUCTION TO CROWDFUNDING The late 19th century saw the creation of one of the world’s most recognisable landmarks with the gift of the Statue of Liberty by the French to the US. While the French paid for the construction and shipping of the statue it was down to the US to fund the base upon which it would stand. With the statue ready to leave France, the Americans were still well short of the $300,0001 needed to build the base and erect the statue. Running short of time the American Committee (responsible for raising the funds) teamed up with newspaper owner Joseph Pulitzer to launch a campaign to invite citizens to donate even small amounts to help in the funding of the pedestal, offering donors miniature replicas of the statue in return. This 19th century crowdfunding campaign raised $100,000 in just five months, contributed to one of the most popular attractions in the world and illustrated the financing power of a large crowd when tapped for funding. While the American Committee were lucky to have Mr Pulitzer and his paper to publicise their plea for donations, others wishing to access so many people would have had no such help. This, however, has changed in recent years with the rise of social media and the new ease with which communities can form and interact online.

Abdul Munim Khan, SZABIST Karachi, munim-khan777@yahoo.com Rana Muhammad Shoaib Hassan, SZABIST Karachi, shoaib.hassan99@yahoo.com Jawad Amjad, SZABIST Karachi, jawadbukhari51@yahoo.com Abstract Crowdfunding is an increasingly popular source to fund start-up, worldwide. In crowdfunding, a form of crowdsourcing, many crowdfundees collectively fund a start-up by providing parts of the requested funding in prospect of financial returns or social return. While extant research has provided insights into the crowd’s motives for participating in various forms of crowdfunding initiatives, we know little about the motivations that drive the crowd to invest in start-ups via crowdfunding. In literature, there are ongoing calls to investigate this phenomenon since it is expected that motives for investing in start-ups via crowdfunding differ from motives for engaging in other forms of crowdsourcing initiatives. Against this background, this research aims at investigating why crowdfundees fund start-ups. In this research paper we build on related literature to theoretically develop a research model and plan to validate this model with an empirical survey on an......

Persuasive Memo

...Recommendation The investment team recommends that $1 million of funding should be awarded to Startsmall over Healthyeat. Startsmall’s primary objective is to provide microloans and microbusiness training and support to low-income individuals in Central and South America. The team assessed the Startsmall’s viability of based on the following criterion: 1. Industry Trends – From an industry perspective, the microfinance industry has faced some headwinds due to pressure from activists accusing institutional lenders of profiteering from the poor. In response to this negative perception, Startsmall’s innovative approach to build a crowdfunding platform provides a new avenue for lower income individuals with access to 1-3% interest. Results from more established players such as Kiva demonstrates a 98% repayment rate which affirms that the crowdfunding approach is a sustainable business model. 2. Financial Impact – The team expects an 8% return on equity based on the assumption that Smallstart will remain a profit generating business. The team forecasts a 4.0-5.0x M-o-M if the company can expand its use base to approximately 500,000 clients in the next 4 years. With a sizeable customer base across South and Central America, regional banks who are actively seeking profitable microfinance ventures would be interested to acquire Startsmall at a premium valuation. 3. Social Impact – In comparison to Healthyeat, Startsmall’s funding usage demonstrates a higher......

Sec Rule 147

...Student’s name Professor’s name Course Date Rule 147 The SEC (Securities and Exchange Commission) is proposing an amendment to the Rule 147 which will modernize it since it has been out of date since its adoption in 1974. It was such a long time ago and to be still dependent on such a draconian rule is wrong considering the current times and the need and use of the internet within and around the business environment (“SEC Adopts Rules to Permit Crowdfunding.” 1). The SEC wants to amend certain sections of the rule so as to make it more favorable to contemporary business practices. It proposes three major changes to the existing Rule 147 which include: 1) Elimination of limitation on manner of offering. The present Rule 147 doesn’t permit issuers to use any form of mass advertisement to promote their offering to the general public that could most likely reach residents that don’t reside in the issuer’s state. Instead, what is permitted is a source of advertisement that is tailored to reach in-state residents hence making internet advertisements almost impossible to use. That is a shame considering how popular and effective it is. The amendment would see sales still limited to in-state residents but offers could be made to residents who don’t reside in the issuer’s state (Zeoli). 2) Elimination of residence requirement for the user. The current rule requires issuers to be formed or incorporated in the state where the offering is happening. The new amendment......

...being able to be sold to the public, and the company’s cash will run out within the next six months. Obtaining Funding According to Goins and Little (2014) the first source of funding look at when searching for additional funds is crowdfunding. Crowdfunding allows for a smaller pool of investors to fund the company with less restrictions. It is allowed under the JOBS Act that launched January 1. It is geared towards the early stages of business and can be combined with venture capital funding. It can ideally be used in the early stages of a business, especially if you don’t qualify for a bank loan, and don’t have angel or venture capital funding. Additionally, according to Buol (2013) with crowdfunding, individuals can contribute small amounts via online campaign, started in the late 1990s and has been used to fund bands, movies, art projects and inventions. The Jumpstart Our Business Startups (JOBS) Act signed in April 2012 opens the doors for startups to solicit equity financing from the general public pending implementation of regulations by the SEC. Other ways in obtaining funding would be to get a commercial loan or grants. From a biblical prospective the best way would be to get funding through donated money such as grants and crowdfunding rather than from loans. Proverbs 22:7 New International Version states that “the rich rule over the poor, and the borrower is slave to the lender”. God never encourages borrowing money and this option should be the last......

Football clubs like Ebbsfleet United have funded operations through fans subscriptions; Obama has used the internet to reach a new and much broader funding audience, while redesigning the campaign financing business; and sites like buyacredit.com allow people to buy a credit or become an executive producer based on their level of patronage.
