3 Key Points:

  1. The valuation of a SAAS model business may not necessarily be only evaluated on a multiplier. There are a variety of factors that can influence its value.
  2. It can be prudent to start small as an inexperienced entrepreneur – E-Squared, Eran’s clothing and coffee based retail business was a labor of love and learning.
  3. By building and integrating a successful marketplace into his crowdsourcing drag-and-drop business, Eran was able to increase its value.

  • 01:34 – Eran joins the show.
  • 02:20 – Eran describes his time with E-Squared, an apparel and coffee based retail business.

3 Key Points:

  1. Offers to buy a business may be a ploy to gain information by competitors. Often it’s prudent to hold off on any announcements before seeing a contract.
  2. LOI’s aren’t created equally. Some of them are offers of pure cash while others include other things like stock in a publicly traded company.
  3. Even after a signed LOI, many deals fall through. Due diligence is required for the actual exchange of money for a company.

Time Stamped Show Notes:

  • 01:00 – If you haven’t caught up already, one of Nathan’s biggest competitors has offered to buy Heyo.
  • 01:26 – One concern is that the offer may not be serious, only a ploy for information.

  • 03:02 – Nathan plans to obtain LOI’s (Letter of Intent) from companies that might be interested in buying Heyo and leveraging competition to raise its price.
  • 03:17 – Another Top Tribe listener weighs in on what Nathan should do with the company.

  • 05:51 – With one LOI in hand from Jim, Nathan began emailing other CEO’s to gauge other interest in Heyo. He obtained four LOI’s from interested companies.
  • 06:30 – The LOI’s weren’t created equally – some of them are pure cash and others include stock in a publicly traded company.
  • 07:27 – Jim Risner talks about Votigo and why they would want to acquire Heyo.
  • 09:10 – Votigo’s been thinking about entering Heyo’s space for a while, expanding into the SMB market. Buying the company would be a big head start into the space.
  • 10:21 – Bethany London calls in to express her thoughts that selling Heyo, a long-time dream of Nathan’s, might not be all that it’s cracked up to be.
  • 11:34 – One of Nathan’s friends from Virginia Tech’s Pamplin School of Business offers his thoughts that Nathan may have outgrown Heyo.
  • 13:58 – Nathan signed the LOI - he’s selling Heyo.
  • 14:22 – Many deals fall through even after a signed LOI.
  • 15:21 – Tune in next Monday to find out what happens. And also, call in to express your thoughts @ com/talk

3 Key Points:

  1. Engineering as Marketing is a concept in which a service or product is provided for free and in turn is used as a lead generator.
  2. Borrowell keeps the loans it processes off its books as it’s only a marketplace for buying and selling loans – not processing the loans themselves.
  3. Like in the case of Borrowell, growing a business is never straightforward – Burrowell has to examine all its loans carefully so they don’t pay the price.

Time Stamped Show Notes:

  • 01:00 – Nathan’s introduction to today’s show
  • 01:40 – Jeff joins the show.
  • 01:50 – Borrowell is a marketplace lender. They offer online loans to high credit Canadians.
  • 03:37 – Customer acquisition cost is Burrowell’s key metric when measuring their progress.
  • 04:42 – Borrowell isn’t bootstrapped – they’ve raised 5.4 million by the end of last year.
  • 05:31 – Jeff talks about loan capital and equity in Borrowell.
  • 06:22 – Borrowell is only a marketplace in which people buy and sell loans. Investors such as banks provide loan capital.
  • 08:46 – Growth is tricky because Borrowell doesn’t want to process unreliable loans quickly that might sink them in the future.
  • 09:36 – Jeff is available on Twitter: @jeff_goldenberg.
  • 10:05 – Borrowell is closing in on half a billion loan applications in Canada.
  • 11:04 – Jeff’s favorite growth tool is known as Engineering as Marketing. Which is when a service or product is made free and used as a lead generator. (Dropbox, Hubspot)
