Yi Hawker

I usually would take on a very objective view of my investments. As much as possible, I would prefer not to involve my emotions in the investments I do. Some would do well, some would not.

Entrepreneurs often share about how they are often disbelieved and experienced much difficulty in getting investors support. Well, I share with you a news as well, even investors are disbelieved by other investors.

In all honesty, given the uncertainty of life, economics and business, even with the best evaluation I would still conclude at the end of day it is up to Providence.

There are still investors who would disparage my evaluation and choices when their knowledge is incomplete. A business may turn out differently because of what the investors do other than just providing money.

Naturally, I am happy that Yi Hawker as a project is gaining traction. Financial figures are improving though it can be better.

Of course, other than being an investor, I am also serving as an Advisor to the Company. Now I would talk about the roles and measures I am taking that I feel are not usual for most investors.

Most people feel that the role of investors is just merely to provide funds but the best investors should and can bring along other benefits. In my opinion, these benefits are way more important than money.

Just as a live case study using Yi Hawker. After appearing on live news report on Television, Yi Hawker mobile app has experienced a tremendous amount of growth and traction.

I have been tasked to redesign the business model and conduct ample due diligence on what is the best business model for Yi Hawker to grow from a singular hawker centre to the rest of Singapore.

The secret to this is that the solution may not just be merely depending on just investors.

I am completing my studies soon and pending some numbers, I am ready to get other existing working partners already in the market to add value to each other. Also at the same time, Yi Hawker is the only first working model for all hawker centres to leverage on the system to expand their reach to more consumers.

Value add investors who are participating from the business model design point of view may be able to accelerate the growth of the investments even faster than merely a pure monetary investors. I am sure that while many entrepreneurs are disrupting their respective markets, capital market by itself needs a disruption as well.

Yi Hawker App is Featured on the News Again!

Yi Hawker app has once again been featured on the news media. As a result of being in the first mover of the F&B industry, the press has once again interviewed Mr Jonathan, our CEO, on what is to come.

For those who want to see the full interview please proceed to the following URL;

For those who wish to be part of the Yi Hawker project, please submit your interest at the following form. We are expanding to other hawker centres, and we can explore how we can work together.

Case Study : Optometrist Group of Companies

16,000 SMEs sought me to raise funding for them. Out of 16,000 SMEs, I finally accepted the appointment of over 3,000 over SMEs. I myself have invested in about 10 of them.

Many of my clients / SMEs I invested in / consulted with are very puzzled at the way I deal with raising funding. I have 3 rules that are not to be flouted.

1) Never ask the investors to believe in you (because, why should they?).

2) Never ask the investors to understand your project (because again, why should they?)

3) When you are talking to investors, you must increase your revenue at the same time (And I am not going to entertain remarks about not having the investments to increase the revenue).

And also, investors are not here to solve your problems. They are investing to solve theirs, so no need tell them your problems.

I am honoured to be involved in the innovative online ecommerce project dealing with spectacles & contact lens.

Too many fund raising are mostly strategic – meaning that they need money to sustain and continue or expand. When you have that problem, investors would squeeze the companies dry.

So here is the step by step procedure in which I structure the project for growth and present to interested angels whom may be interested to invest in this. This is a tactical plan to raise funding and it would work fabulously even if your fund raising fails.

1) Evaluating whether the USP is defensible

The USP is not bad and highly defensible. Generally, nobody can sell spectacles & contact lens without a license. So Lazada & Zalora cannot compete on those areas. And those who have licenses do not understand ecommerce sufficiently well to go into this area.

2) Defining Shareholder Structure

Some shareholders are bound by shareholder contract to contribute to the revenue and bottomline to the company, and it is not just a well intentioned understanding. Succeeding in achieving those aims would trigger a clause for greater rewards in shares.

This removes the possibility of arguments later in the company because of unclear expectation. This is totally unlike the structure possessed by 90% of the companies in Singapore, when a disagreement may just cause the company to be completely closed down.

3) Franchise Business Model Design

All shareholders are made franchisees of the Company. From there the franchisees are going to contribute in expanding the reach of the company.

The franchise also allows more partners to be involved in generating revenue for the company.

4) Defining the Option Pool

When the option pool is defined for all shareholders, franchisees & also staff the certainty of the company is more assured.

Ironically, it would make the company less dependent on investors. As the company could be financed by revenue and not necessarily by investors’ funds.

In case you may want to participate as franchisees or just want to know more how this structure allows your company to grow very fast, safely for yourself and also for your investors, do fill up the form here.

We are also glad that the company has met up eventually to firm up all the structures with our company secretary. When we firm up all these structures, it facilitates a healthier growth for our company.

I appeal to all the people raising funding for their companies.

Entertain, just entertain the possibility that what you need is not really money. It is a way to structure your company and the money would flow in.

After all, the world has a problem of too much money.
