The Big Idea
What is happening in the DealWorkshop?
We understand how frustrated Investors can be when they are constantly presented with opportunities which are not thoroughly researched, without due diligence, or a proper business plan.
On the other hand there are countless owners of businesses or real estate who wish to attract capital, yet they do not seem to be able to find the investors. The challenge is that people are trying to sell real estate, not investment products.
The big idea is that a third group of people, namely job-seeking professionals, can act as a catalyst between the investors and the sellers. There are so many experts who are looking to earn some money, and they can do it in the framework of the DealWorkshop.
The DealWorkshop is a place where deals are created out of mere opportunities, according to a pre-defined, yet flexible process. Some data is uploaded by the owner, then teams of experts get busy and perform a list of jobs so the opportunity rises on what we call the “investability scale” and becomes a deal in which investors are interested, because it has investment markers, for example price to earnings (P/E) ratio, cap rate, annual yield, capital appreciation, risk analysis, exit strategy.
Experts lend their expertise to the owner in exchange for a future share or commission, which is higher than their regular hourly wage, and is guaranteed by contract.
The result is that
- Investors and their agents are able to professionally compare opportunities,
- Owners of opportunities are able to tap into the investor market, and
- Professionals finally get contracts, jobs.
The system encourages entrepreneurship and foreign direct investment (FDI) in underdeveloped regions, creating jobs and alleviating local governments of a crippling economic burden.
One of the remarkable benefits is the mobilization of the experienced “over-skilled” 50+ workforce as well as the paradigm shift of job seekers from an employee mentality to a business partner mentality, as they become future shareholders and emphasize the B2B aspect of their participation, instead of the traditional 9-5 employee relationship.
