Looking forward to it.
Lesson learnt again... Great hosting from 1 and 1 as sendmybag crashes...
Edit: intermittent service
they never learn do they ha
Ahhh fresh shows, watched the old'ns to death on TiVo
Yep - send my bag got given short thrift - nice idea but nothing that airline carriers or UPS/Fedex etc can't replicate bigger, better and cheaper within a month if they got a task team on it!
That guy in the last pitch who mouthed the whole pitch... too funny.
Missed it ... watching the repeat tonight as internet here is crap for watching online!
If the idea is replicated, I suppose at least he's at least got a decent enough domain name if they have an affiliate program.
send my bag ended up with 100k angel funding!
Thanks for that link Andy. When you come to think about it this particular 'Business idea" was one of the few with a 'real world' awaiting audience. I appreciate this particular participants idea started off from sending Students bags. But, when you think about it there is ready-made and growing need for this type of service - And it could effectively and quite easily be targeted to quite a few other areas.
Now one could argue that this service is readily available from most 'Courier' type carriers and indeed can be duplicated. But, the fact is it isn't marketed as such.
I actually registered 4 domains shortly after Dragons Den finished - based around this concept (securing a particlar term, in it's key extensions and not a "spead of terms")
I'm not normally quite so frivalous when it comes to new registrations - But, sometimes particularly in the domain world you do have to take a punt before the The Business model itself is a full-blown reality. The fact of the argument that any shipping/forwarding/courier type business would/could particularly be looking for a slice of the action is usually a better sign to my mind to be sniffing-out the better generics.
Separate names with a comma.
