If you have an idea, you can become an entrepreneur without investing any capital.
Freecultr Express, a new digital platform, aims to create more than three lakh entrepreneurs by 2016, enabling them to build their own tee-store, all through designs submitted in the form of photographs, sketches, paintings, digital illustrations or even smart phone photographs.
An innovative retail concept, the digital platform is a simplified crowd-sourced design platform that allows anyone to create and sell t-shirts through their very own personalized tee-store featuring original and authentic digital content. All this, without any investments in inventory, operations and logistics
A statement by Freecultr Express said it has been operating quietly since November 2014, building the designer community organically. As of today the online platform has already enabled more than 5500 individual designers promoting 24000 plus designs through their personalized tee-stores, making it the largest collection of T-shirts to choose from. It claims to receive over 600 designs daily.
At the launch in New Delhi on Monday, Sandeep Singh, CEO and co-founder of Freecultr said, "Inventory, distribution, production, supply-chain have been some of the biggest pain points for anyone to start their own business in this segment. We've simplified and solved that with Freecultr Express. Now anyone can become an entrepreneur just like the 5500 plus designers we already have on board and start earning from day one without the hassles of knowing the technology and mammoth sized operations that go behind making it happen."
"The platform shall enable these people to fulfil their entrepreneurial dreams without having to invest anything. If you have an idea we will enable and empower you to convert into a real life product. We aim at crossing the 3,00,000 number of designers by 2016," he added.
Rajesh Narkar, chief product officer and co-founder of Freecultr said, "We are building a hyper fashion business with an opportunity to have unlimited choice for customers fulfilled with a super fast time to market that has been totally unheard of - two days from design to dispatch."
The process of starting your own tee-store is really simple and gives designers the liberty to set their own selling price from the standard band which ranges from Rs 399 to Rs 799, with no minimum order quantity required. If the user sets the price at Rs 599, he/she will be earning Rs 249 from each t-shirt sold from their store. Once launched, designers spread the word of their tee-store amongst friends and family through various social media platforms and keep adding more designs to the store on a regular basis. All monthly earnings of a designer will be transferred to their bank accounts, via wire-transfers.
