Business is a struggle, but the result depends on the skill of the fighter. As a business axiom we use one of the eternal principle of martial arts - "A won battle - a battle that never took place." With the principle of this axiom, we analyze the most of the start-up projects, which came from the business new-comers.
For example, we did receive a call of services from an investor, which earned his money abroad, who wishes to buy an existing business - a fast food cafe, built of easy-mount metallic structures and placed on the land owned by large retail chain. The Café, as business, was particularly interesting as an investment - it was assumed that the investor buys the cafe on "turnkey" in the property for 30 000 Euro. The real value of the cafe (metalwork, stained glass, equipment, etc.), was at 60 000 Euros. The promised profitability was higher than 3 000 Euros per month. Naturally, with such monthly income parameters and the possibility to buy the cafe in property for a half price, there must be no doubt in the investment positive opportunity. However, after the work of our team, including the land owner insider information, it was found that the land, on which the café is placed and is rented from a major retail operator, is planned for next year to be used for the construction of a new supermarket. Thus, the café project could run on the existing territory for not more than 10 months, after which the owner would have been forced to search for a new territory to reinstall the cafe – which mean supplementary investment in new land replacement, the connection to water, electricity, and other approval paperwork. Also there is another issue – to find a new area to house the cafe on 150 square meters, on such low price as the actual. We did recommend to abandon the investment in this project. Thus, spending about 300 Euro for our services, the potential investor has kept his 30 000 Euro funds that have been invested, subsequently, in a less risky project, with a 1 500 Euro monthly level of profitability..
