Generating Funding / Start up for Green Generation Cars
Green Generation Cars was founded by five friends led by Mr. Sebastian Crooks. These experienced men, Adam Kendell, Pete Lennon, Otis Craig and Martins Mist are all from different walks of life and they are ready to invest their years of experience in Green Generation Cars. Thus, we have restricted the sourcing of the startup capital for the business to just three major sources.
- Generate part of the startup capital from personal savings and sale of stocks
- Generate part of the startup capital from friends and other extended family members
- Generate part of the capital from the bank (loan facility).
Note: This group of friends has been able to raise $2,000,000, and they are at the final stages of obtaining a loan facility of $1,500,000.
Payroll alone in our early business stages to be about $51,000 for one mechanic and one accountant, while all sales staff operate on commission. Indeed margins are very hard to put together as the average per unit costs do not include marketing costs, promotions, or salesman commissions. But our overall average per unit revenue over per unit costs is based on past sales from other dealerships.
We hope to attain a margin that high in the future. We also anticipate a heady monthly increase in sales starting small (selling 8 cars in the first month). The gross margin within the first year will be modest, rising in the second and third year. Our major budget items will include salary, rent, sales and marketing expenses, utilities (including costs of photovoltaic cell maintenance), insurance, taxes and licensing.
Green Generation Cars net profit is also expected to reach outstanding levels in the first year, rising in the second and the third year. All of these profits can then be fed back into research and development opening the doorway to a secondary market role for Green Generation Cars to become a patent holding company.
