NNT

An elevator pitch is a critical tool for start-up businesses (or any business seeking funding) to have.  In f1 through 3, your Group built the framework and an initial business plan for your proposed opportunity.  In f3, you prepared a pitch slide deck for the North Dallas Business Angel Syndicate (NDBAS).  In f 4, your Group has been selected as a finalist to present your idea to the NDBAS.  Your group is one of 12 groups selected to present at the next NDBAS meeting.  You are told you will only be given 60 seconds to present your pitch to the investor audience.  As a reminder, the minimum amount of funds you can request in your pitch is $5,000.  There is no limit (although it is not recommended you exceed $500,000).

Brim auto spares

Providing affordable spare parts for motorbikes and the general public to help the lifespan of their motorcycle.

The Issue

In most cities in Africa “public” transportation is inaccessible and almost nonexistent.

There are approximately 200 million motorcycle riders in the world and the number of riders in Africa is one of the highest in the world. The issue is that even though there are millions of people who ride motorcycles in Africa there are no manufacturing companies that handle the development of motorcycle spares. The need to be filled is easy access to parts and spares to repair motorcycles more easily.

The Solution

We aim to create a business that assists people with finding the parts that they need so that they can go about their daily lives unaffected. In the United States, if we have any issues with our vehicles, we can simply get it fixed or even take a taxi or Uber to reach our destination. In other countries, this opportunity is not given. If your motorbike requires maintenance and (or) needs a missing part, you are simply out of luck. This is where Brim Spare Parts comes in to assist! We’ll get the parts needed to you as soon as possible 

Having remote production of motorcycles and parts creates import duties, and motorcycles and parts are marketed at higher rates. With our business plan we will be able to minimize those import duties and lower the market rates of the motorcycles.

Opportunity

In many places of the world, motorbikes are essentially the primary mode of transportation for individuals. They are relied upon to navigate to and from work, school and any other tasks that you may have, but the issue that people are facing is the common wear and tear of their bikes. After years of usage these bikes require maintenance and oftentimes new parts to get it up and running. 

However, these parts are scarce, thus hindering the lives of people. Without transportation, they miss out on work and it becomes a rippling effect. We at Brim Auto Spares will be able to remedy the situation with providing them with the parts that they need and any other assistance desired for their motorbikes. 

Target Audience

At Brim Auto spares we would assist these bike riders with the parts that they need. We would be able to accommodate customers in many places of the world, such as Africa, Argentina, Egypt, Turkey and more. These are all countries where motorbikes are heavily used.

Technology

With the many shops that we will have available, we will have skilled and knowledgeable employees ready to assist. Whether it’s a simple inquiry or locating a much needed part, we are here to help. With our vast inventory of products. We can accommodate customers with online orders or in person.

Competition

Brim Auto Spares will set up shop in Nigeria, Africa and establish a presence with the natives. This will be our primary location and over time of building clientele, we will expand across the globe. We would face competitors such as, Honda Motorcycle, Innoson Nigeria Limited, Qlink Centre, Zongshen Motorcycles and Suzuki. These places are globally known or locally and they have already have a presence with consumers. While they offer similar services, most (if not all) have high prices and limited on inventory of parts. At Brim Auto Spares, this wouldn’t be an issue, we would be stocked with parts bountifully and with reasonable pricing.

Team Deliverable Four- Business Pitch

1) Describe or explain the problem (or gap) you are trying to address via a quick narrative

a. Approximately, 200 million are motorcycle riders in the world today. The number is expected to rise as it is the most reliable means of transport in the third world countries. The number of riders in Africa is high as compared to other continents. However, there is no manufacturing companies that deal with the development of motorcycle spares. Due to these there is need for importation of these commodities from time to time which is expensive.

2) Describe how your product/service will address the problem described in #1 above

a. The product that will be developed by the company is motor cycle spares. The spares will be developed remotely from the various companies. The aspect of remote production is to ensure that everyone gets access to the commodities easily. Also, the cost of production reduces as more commodities will be produced to serve the needs of the consumers.
