Business model

Describe the problem you are solving
We are pitching to attract idea patent for mobile vans that will charge the EVs on spot using unique scheme of green portable grid network.
How are your customers solving that problem today?
There is a huge gap, there are very selected charging stations as of today, in fact in Pakistan, none. Usually, the potential customer modify the car chargers to bring compatibility with home grid thereby decreasing the life span of battery or keep portable battery banks charged from local power outlets (which are hazard in themselves).
Target custormers - Define customers, who are they
EV Users, Electricity Purchasers
How do you plan to acquire customers?
Social Buzz, ATL marketing, Collaborations
What is your revenue model or expected revenue model?
We are relying on rental model for local service a pay per usage tariff. Plus, we focus to cater subscription based priority services.

More so, we have a fall back plan to provide rental electricity which is green ( for concerts, hospitals, marriage events) and FOC as a CSR and marketing initiative at times of catastrophe.

Quit plan: By targeting with the patent idea to a larger manufacturer of EVs such as Türkiye’nin Otomobili (T

Competition: write down competitors and explain
This concept is new; however, some similar looking projects. Today companies like Tesla by Elon Musk are looking along the lines to come up with built in compatibility with their cyber trucks. We are different because it is not the car that will go to the station (conventional or RE based) but our servicing trucks are accessible and on the ground all the time with multiple cars getting charged at any instance in time. Eventually expanding to EU markets with the help of local partners like TOGG.
Who are your competitors and how are you different?
We conceived the idea as late as 2014 and lacked resources for patent. They intend to provide fixed stations whereas we are striving for portable charging stations. We do not restrict ourselves to EV Charging.
Traction / KPIs
What progress have you made in the last six months?
We have configured setups that are more than prototypes for helping us achieve what we say is required.
How many customers/users do you currently have?
0
What is your monthly growth rate?
0%
Describe traction
There are heavy-diesel fueled generator sets which are rented in accordance to energy demands. They are evaluated at least four times our purposed per unit selling rate. Each Green Charge Point costs around 8 cents including dispatch and will be discharged at 15 cents exclusive of value added taxes. We have a sustainable investment plan to increase number of Solar Power Battery Bank vehicles that will be rented in terms of Power needs and number of hours. This is a Green Energy project.

Other info Write bullet points (Grants, prizes, acceleration)
We have successfully built Turkish supply-chain partnership for Solar Microstring inverters and artificial intelligence integration tools to make this possible. We have a thriving business in Pakistan and look forward to expand to EU market courtesy the Turkey's friendly ease of doing business policies where we can chip in after carefully going through this activity.

Afterall we are all in to break the oil lobby. We intend to get acquired by energy industry giants like BP or any good Electric Car manufacturer Türkiye’nin Otomobili per say, however, the design patent concept is worth a million dollar incentive.
