The Business

We looking for a partner to get involved in the business with us in their local market which is an international market to us. An ideal partner works in the property sector e.g. a managing or real estate agent, has a network of reliable contractors and a customer base. The funding will be used to market the business in the territory.

We are looking to start with a low cost operating model i.e. each partner contributes their time to get the business off the ground and once we are generating revenues we can add infrastructure. We bring the platform all future development and management of the business / website once contractors are loaded and the business is launched. The partner brings the contractors and a customer base if possible, local knowledge and assists with putting the marketing plan in place. To launch we looking for some media exposure, user reviews and whatever course of action we collectively decide to take to get the word out there e.g. social media advertising etc.

The Market

The primary target market is any home owner, tenant, Landlord or property investor who has a smartphone or laptop and transacts online. At some point they will need one or other contractor and contractorbookings.com offers the solution.

A possible secondary target market is property managing agents or insurance companies where we can add their approved contractors for their clients to use. This will cut down their time and cost associated with processing claims.

Reviews, Comments and Questions

Investing in start-ups involves risks, including illiquidity, lack of dividends, loss of capital and it should be done as part of a diversified portfolio. Gunnga is targeted exclusively at investors who are sufficiently sophisticated to understand these risks and make their own financial decisions.
