Pitch for the Startup Chile 2014
Every day during a week I come to my car and say to myself : “I have to wash my car”
While I was sitting in my dirty car I thought : “Why day by day I'm delaying wash of my “iron horse” ? Suddenly I realized that there are some difficult questions. For example :
Where is the nearest car wash?
Is there a queue?
What if it will rain suddenly?
I concluded that this is the reason why I drive dirty car!
Perhaps a lot of people knew themselves in this story.
We created mobile App which can answer your question “Wash or not to wash”
You will get advice based on a weather forecast for next days!
You will see most popular and nearest car washes!
You will even see contacts, reviews and sales.
Also you can get washerman right to your car just by one click and pay for wash with discount right from the app!
Where is money here?
Our business model just like Foursquare : car washes pays for highlighting in list and promotion of their sales. Drivers will get free coffee for the review.
Plus statistics, geo targeted push advertisement of car washes sales and opportunity answering reviews.
Car washes market size will reach 27 billion $ to 2017 year according to Global Industry Analysts.
We were able to work out the product and start it in Russia for 3 months! We have a big professional team : genius engineers, business developers, marketers, programmers and etc.
For two months we got some results.
