Hey there, I actually posted this in the juniorVIP, but I thought I would go ahead and put this out here. You guys probably know how dentists make a killing in most parts of the world. Dentistry is a very lucrative business model. I am a recently graduated dentist who harbors dream of opening my own practice. I am based in a metro city in India(Hyderabad). So, I am looking for investors willing to fund it. Here are the details. Details about myself -I have recently completed my graduation and working at a clinic. -My fiancee is also a dentist and will complete her graduation in 8 months.Both of us are around 25 years of age. -Working as a dentist is a badly paying job here. The real profit is in running your own practice. Hence, the JV. - I don't make any substantial income from my job. My main source of income is IM and that's not a large amount either(approx. $500-1k per month) which is going towards my wedding. -I am not a shady guy. Would be happy to hand over my personal details as well as sign an agreement. Details about the venture -This is not an immediate plan. It will probably take 6months to one year to execute. I'll have to keep my eye out for clinics that are getting sold.Also, in the meanwhile, I am going to be enhancing my skills as a dentist. -The ideal plan is to buy a clinic which is not doing very well, renovate it, splurge on marketing and turn it in to a profitable business. Being in IM, I know that solid marketing can turn fortunes of any business. -My estimate is around $20k for this. We are not buying the place. We will be renting it out. It will not cost $20k immediately. It will be probably be $10 k for the dental chairs,instruments and materials, $2-4k for renovation and the rest for marketing. This guestimate is for an average clinic in decent location. It will probably cost more for advanced equipment and posh location. -I am ideally looking for one investor since it will be easier to work out. -Me and my fiancee would be working in the clinic, if things go well, we can hire a post-graduate specialist dentist as well. Me and her will not be taking a salary, but a % of the profit. Basically, after expenditure, 50% to us, 50% to the investor. - It will probably take a year for the clinic to get established. I estimate a monthly income of anywhere between $1k to $5k per month once the clinic is established. Risks/Guarantees I am pretty sure people interested in this JV are thinking about the guarantees that I would offer. What if something goes haywire and the clinic is not profitable etc. Well, Ofcourse, I can't guarantee the income but I am quite confident about my ability and my business sense. I would be happy to work out a deal to safeguard you from a heavy loss. I understand that such a kind of JV is not a commonly occurring phenomenon on BHW and hence would be happy to sign the paper work to safeguard your investment. I can also consider an offer where I invest a percentage of the money required. I am not sure how much I can do though. That will depend on how much I am able to save till next year. To people reading this thread. Do reply to this thread with your opinions even if you are not interested. Do you think the idea is far fetched for someone to invest in this JV? Do you think I'm offering a fair deal? What are your suggestions to improve my chances of success and improve chances of finding an investor P.S: I am not willing to take a loan from the bank. Since, I have nothing to secure the loan against and the interest rates will be crazy.
