Business Model:

Freemium business model for the businesses on this dog-friendly SaaS platform. The business will pay based on the number of dog-friendly locations they have. This allows them to create advertisements (target dog owners based on location & interests) & see analytics (profile views, ad views, discount activations) on the platform. Next they will start monetising from hotels bookings, restaurant reservations & e-commerce.

Customer type / profile:

B2C & B2B

Preferable investor type:

Angel investor; Venture Capitalist, Incubator/Accelerator

USP’s:

– Nobody does exactly what this platform does.

– They are the only ones letting businesses create their own profiles and be in charge of the information, meaning the information is accurate, which is not the case on competitor websites. A lot of times businesses don’t even know they are visible on other websites or they say they are not even dog friendly (happens on Google my Business, Booking.com, competitor websites like “Sr Perro”).

– This app is the only one giving details about the dog sizes that are welcome, how many dogs are welcome per person/group, where dogs are welcome inside or outside/terrace (for restaurants), dog services offered (bowl of water, dog cookies, doggie menu etc.) by the business etc. All details which are necessary for dog owners to make a good choice before going somewhere with their dog. They offer more than just saying “this place is dog friendly”.

– The startup is the only one with an app, only BringFido in the USA has it, but it only allows to book hotels and is very limited with offering dog friendly places.

– They have automated their processes in order to be able to scale.
