Fancy opening up a bike shop with me?
Ever dreamt of opening up an awesome bike shop in the centre of London? ....me to
Over the past year, myself and my business partner have been setting up the contacts, finances and location for a bike shop in the centre of London. Everything is in place. The brands, location (lease), and bank loan.
However, at the last moment, my partner has just pulled out on me. He feels he can’t risk the capital required to start it up and is worried about the risk of competition in the area.
I can’t afford to do this by myself and the bank loan is predicated upon a certain capital input by the owners. I only have half of that money.
So, I was wondering whether anybody reading this would like to go in with me?
You’ll need to be located in London, over 25, have over £100k (not borrowed), a good knowledge of bikes (preferably road), and preferably working experience in a bike shop or a retail environment (not a must). You’ll also need to understand that there’s a risk the venture wouldn’t succeed....
Obviously this is a long shot, and it’s less than ideal to be starting a business with somebody you’ve never met. But, if you are, or know, somebody that is seriously in a position to do this please do get in touch.
I’d stress, serious enquiries only please, if you’re under the age of 25 it’s very unlikely we’d be able to work together.
Believe me, having stepped off the corporate ladder to set this thing up, I can tell you, it’s not something you’ll regret.....
