UK Innovator Visa for ENDO Music Studio (London)

From UK Startup visa expiry to approval of ENDO Founder's Innovator visa, this was indeed a complex project with tight timelines & difficult case, which was successfully executed by FatFox Investment®. 

ENDO is a creative and innovative 360° music hub democratising, U.S & UK Indie music markets through advanced audio/visual music production/concerts, digital streaming, education, & social welfare. 

ENDO Founder's startup visa was about to expire within a month's timeline and he had to apply for the Innovator visa to continue the startup business in London. Having worked hard for almost 2 years to build his startup from scratch in London, the Founder (a U.S citizen) was facing this challenge of losing his visa status, without the timely approval of his Innovator visa. To add more complications, the startup's revenue had plummeted due to the COVID-19 pandemic which brought the event industry to a grinding halt in London. It was a challenge to convince the visa officer!

The Founder approached FatFox Investment® for assistance. We quickly developed a well researched & well written Innovator visa business plan. Introduced the Founder to a couple of top immigration solicitors based in London. We managed to submit the application well within the deadlines. However, the visa officer sent back a request to submit more detailed financial information related to the business. With our expertise in financial accounting & valuation, the requested document was promptly submitted to the visa officer. As a result of this careful application process, the Founder was invited for a biometric interview and his visa got approved within a month's timeline. Now, the Founder is happy and scaling his startup in London!

Marketing Strategy for Alpha Blu Cosmetics (Monaco/Germany)

From developing a comprehensive marketing strategy plan to reaching the Investment Committees (IC) of some of the top venture capital companies in the world, this is one of the most creative and challenging projects that we have worked on till now!

A certified B Corporation and founding patrons of the British Beauty Council, the company works with brilliant client partners to deliver amazing brands and products, including British Airways, Space NK, Primark, Emirates, Aromatherapy Associates, The White Company, Bamford, Cathay Pacific, Kmart Australia, Qatar Airways and Singapore Airlines.  They are proud co-founders and operators of many amazing brands, including:

 

• ARKIVE Headcare - with renowned stylist, Adam Reed  

• Cultured Biomecare - with skincare trailblazer, Rob Calcraft  

• Soho Skin - with global private members club, Soho House & Co. 

 

The brief consisted of two components: 

The first one was to map a premium luxury cosmetic product with all the potential beauty retailers worldwide. This involved identifying the suitable distributors, e-commerce stores, mass & drug stores, and premium department stores in the Middle East, Russia, China, Japan, Korea, South America, Scandinavia, Europe, U.S.A, UK, and Canada. 

 

The second component involved mapping & comparison of the pricing of two premium cosmetics products in their respective host countries with that of all the other countries listed above. 

 

Matrix required this market research in a specific format and needed it within a 5-day timeline. We executed this project in a timely manner. The resulting data was of high quality and the market data was very accurate. This data was extracted from multiple sources such as google search, market reports, trade fair data, & so on, without using any software or third party data extraction tools (as this kind of data wasn't available in it!). The Founders and the management team of Matrix were highly impressed by the resulting work, given that it was executed within the 5-day timeline!  

 

Alpha Blu Skincare cosmetics is a division of Blue Horizon International (BHI) group of companies based in Germany. The company has invented a range of skincare products using human umbilical cord derived stem cells. BHI is founded by Dr. Brian Mehling who is a world re-owned orthopaedic surgeon based in New Jersey and his team of experienced management executives. Alpha Blu is their direct-to-consumer (DTC) startup which sells its products through DTC store, e-commerce companies, drug stores, and premium departmental stores. 

 

Dr. Brian had two main requirements for Alpha Blu. The first one was to develop a comprehensive marketing strategy plan, pitch deck, financial model, and venture capital valuations. The second was to raise seed capital to grow the business in Europe. FatFox Investment® was hired for this project. We have developed a very pragmatic marketing strategy document that is based on the latest trends, playbooks, and frameworks related to the cosmetics industry. The financial valuation & modeling has been developed based on the latest market trends, competitor data, and Pitchbook insights. The project involved extensive market research of the global stem cell cosmetics industry. 

 

We have performed in-depth research on global Investors who invest in biotech & stem cell startups, and executed e-mail campaigns. This effort resulted in some of the top venture investors reviewing our marketing plan, pitch deck, and financials. They have considered funding the company and reached the final Investment Committee (IC) meetings in the funding pipeline.

eeZee Ltd (Dublin)

From receiving the brief on a Friday, to the successful submission of request for proposal (RFP) by Monday, this is one of the most complex projects we have completed in such a short timeline. 

eeZee is a logistics agency in Dublin and is an outside service provider (OSP) for United Parcel Service (UPS) Ireland. The Founder wanted to bid for two projects advertised by UPS but was short of time and the project brief was complicated. So, he hired FatFox Investment® to prepare the RFP.

The projects were complicated because it involved a delicate trade-off between quality of service and the bidding price. Plus, the proposed bidding price had to ensure that the company doesn't make a loss in the financial books, because, the package delivery/pick-up routes in Dublin are complicated (which results in correspondingly higher fuel bills for the company) and the cost of resources (delivery vans, drivers etc.,) is also high in Dublin.

 

Given all these challenges, we had to first and foremost come-up with a financial algorithm to find the best routes possible to minimise the fuel costs and overall operational costs (cost modeling). We then had to make sure that our bidding rate is competitive (relative to other bidders). A very pragmatic financial model was developed to compare the bidding costs between competitors and the 3-statement projections were developed (profit & loss, balance sheet, and cash flows). We then developed a two page request for proposal (RFP) which consisted of the bidding details, staff & resource hiring structure, financial projections, and value proposition statement. All of this was completed within a 3-day timeline and submitted to UPS for consideration!

BeautyCo - UK is a Subsidiary of BeautyCo SARL which has had a track - record of contract manufacturing top quality industry approved pharmaceutical drugs , supplements, and beauty & cosmetics products since 1992.

The specific purpose of this business plan is to support Mr. Gio’s application to establish BeautyCo SARL’s commercial operation in the UK under the Sole Representative Visa. 

We introduced our visa solicitor partner - Sable International to the client and initiated the first round of discussions with them. We conducted a 60 minutes workshop to understand the client's requirements and business details. The first draft was finished in about a week's time followed by another workshop to review the draft & understand their financials. The second draft was finished by the second week in consultation with Sable to ensure that the business plan followed all the required sections & information required by the UK Visa Officers. The final business plan was ready by the third week. The entire business plan was completed in 3 weeks timeline.

Having failed to generate leads in his first NYC BlockAsia Conference in New York City, the Founder wanted to give it another try and in a more professional/planned manner. He approached us requesting for a strategy plan for the conference 2.0 and execution of the event planning phase.

This was a 4 month project which involved 5 team members working remotely from different countries. 

 

I conducted a workshop to understand the client's requirements, pain points, existing conference business model, & other business specific details. I came-up with a comprehensive strategy plan for conference 2.0 based on extensive market research of the blockchain events market, business model innovation, and innovative experiential ideas. Being a part time event planner, Mr. Pradeep had a better idea of planning such events and as a result, it helped with the creation of a pragmatic strategy plan. The entire plan was completed in about a month's time. 

 

It was time for execution. Mr. Pradeep hired event specialists such as venue managers, social media marketers, & so on for planning the event. We invited top Founders of bitcoin startups, found a great venue, arranged all the event logisitics, contacted prospective sponsors, and ran digital marketing campaigns to create awareness of the conference. The project was a success.

Smart Irrigation Market Research

Residential irrigation has seen exciting developments in the last fifteen to twenty years, including advances in technology and people finding creative ways to save on resources with their irrigation. Water conservation has also become an important and critical initiative since there have been shortages experienced throughout the United States , and more people are adopting ways to irrigate their plants better to increase efficiency. 

The client contacted us requesting for a comprehensive market research of the US residential irrigation market but required it within 10 days. The project involved extensive market research of this niche industry. It was challenging due to the lack of available data on search engines. So it required deeper data analysis like combining data from many different sources. All the sections of this plan was created from scratch. We had 2 draft review sessions and the final product was delivered in 10 days.
