  1. Your communities. Your products. Your passions. An app to save, share, and discover the products that define the communities that you are passionate about 121INTERVIEWS AMAR PATEL MBA 2015 OMAR AYOUB MBA 2015 CARMELA AQUINO MBA 2015 CARLOS LASA MIMS 2016
  2. OUR TEAM Amar Patel Mobile and adtech expertise Strategy consulting experience Omar Ayoub Mobile engineering expertise Google and Microsoft experience Carmela Aquino Product marketing expertise Digital analytics experience Carlos Lasa UX and design expertise CPG brand management experience
  3. We believe that mobile has the power to make commerce easy.
  4. 1 To hear the truth, put customers on the spot 2 Don’t try to solve everyone’s problem – focus on a specific, real customer first 3 When in doubt: go very broad for discovery, then very narrow for nailing the fit 4 Don’t overbuild the MVP 5 Pivot ruthlessly, even if it hurts WHAT WE LEARNED IN CLASS
  5. Market Type Value Proposition Product Type Customers Business Model WEEK 1 10 interviews TODAY 121 interviews Cross-platform Apple Pay for e-commerce merchants App for sharing passions through products Mobile commerce Social commerce Ease of use for payments Fulfillment of emotional needs – belonging and achievement Merchants with mobile apps Consumers who identify with product-centric communities % of transactions Commissions on product sales, advertising fees Horizontal feature Vertical platform
  6. The Apple Pay for any mobile platform A tool for converting customers through retargeted mobile ads A universal shopping cart An app to save, share, and discover the products that define the communities that you are passionate about WHO ARE WE?
  7. Payments were not high on merchants’ priority list of concerns PIVOT 1
  8. …then a tool for converting customers through retargeted mobile ads…While merchants loved the adtech idea, consumers weren’t as excited about ads PIVOT 2
  9. …then a universal shopping cart…While general consumers liked the app idea, a compelling value proposition was still lacking PIVOT 3
  10. …to where we are today!Sharing and engaging with communities gives consumers a reason to come back PIVOT 4
  11. ACTIVE COMMUNITIES Fulfill higher-level emotional needs – belonging and acceptance Have relatively high barriers to entry due to knowledge and gear required Already encourage a culture of sharing with newcomers
  12. 1/5 of our interviewees were climbers, runners, triathletes $500 amount that an active triathlete can spend per month on gear Interviewees went to trusted friends or experts for product advice, not Amazon Many have interests in multiple activities Newcomers can benefit the most from a community-based service that offers helpful advice
  13. “With a sport like climbing, where the barriers to entry are high, it can be intimidating to get started. A community like this would help.”
  14. How the business works…HOW WE ARE DIFFERENT Pinboards for saving images and other media Climbing- specific forum App that allows you to browse and save products Fitness social network using gamification Product-specific, with dynamic price updates and stronger community focus Allows for users to engage with other communities Stronger community focus around shared passions E-commerce is enabled throughout the platform, making gear hunting easy PRODUCT CONCEPT OUR DIFFERENTIATION

  16. Revenue Sources 1. Merchants Affiliate referral bonus (7-9%) 2. Advertisers Native ad units for product discovery feed ($2 CPC) 3. Data Management Partners, Demand Side Platforms Audience data for targeting purposes ($20+ CPM) Merchants Sales / BDUsAdvertisers Data Partners 7-9% of Sale $2 CPC $25 CPM User Acquisition (Social Media Ads) Platform Payments In Payments Out 80% 20% % of Sales Forecast We learned that the bulk of revenue would come from sales commissions HOW THE REVENUE MODEL WORKS

  18. WHAT WE LEARNED ABOUT THE BUSINESS It is scalable We first build for niche verticals, identify the parameters that are specific to these verticals, and make these parameters customizable as we scale The revenue model is defensible Commissions through affiliate programs are an easy first revenue source, and our data becomes more valuable as the platform scales How to work with partners We understand the ecosystem of merchants, advertising companies, and ecommerce vendors, and have built connections with them There are key metrics that matter GMV (gross merchandise value) is more important than advertising spend, and 30-day retention can be more critical than monthly growth for commerce companies We have a differentiated value proposition Our target customers don’t use substitute product-focused platforms today – they see the value of what we’re building, with some even willing to pay for it
  19. WHY WE ARE NOT PURSUING THE OPPORTUNITY FURTHER We don’t feel we’re the right team to pursue the opportunity You really need to live and breathe the active lifestyle community in order to sell to it We aren’t truly passionate about social networks – it’s an opportunity we stumbled upon
