Problem

Ironing is great for many reasons. Along with DE wrinkling clothes, making you look better, it’s shown to strengthen its fabric and increase the clothes’ longevity. The heat of the iron can also kill lingering bacteria, preventing potential illnesses you’d have to suffer through.

However, there are many issues with our known method or ironing clothes

  • It’s tedious, time-consuming, and boring.
  • It takes up space.
  • It’s hard.
  • It’s dangerous

Instead of needing to manually iron clothes, this machine can do it all for you! Here are some of the many added perks of that:

  • It’s sleek and easy to store
  • It’s very easy to use.
  • It can iron a wide variety of clothes, even big ones!
  • It works on many different fabric types
  • It’s a lot faster than regular ironing
  • It’s completely safe to use, and child-proof!

TAM

700,000-Hotels+resorts in the world

17.5 million guestrooms rooms wide

6+million-Airbnb in world wide

2.3 billion houses the world wide

roughly 2 billion potential customers in the world

SAM

99% people in US have an iron

51% of people iron clothes in the USA

166,272 Motels in USA

28,592-dry cleaning services

Around 20-40% US households are interested people and can afford our product

Around 60-75%  businesses i.e. hotels, dry cleaning services, etc can afford our product

339 Millions of people are in the US, from which we can obtain 85 Millions + customers,

and we sell can 200 Millions extra units to Hotels

SOM

Competitors: The closest product to ours is called Effie (Not too many competitors with very similar product, and Effie isn’t very well known, so we have a good opportunity to expand)

Our main competitor won’t be with similar products (since they are very expensive and not well known) but with regular irons.

Our first business model is focused on selling individual units to households, and not to expand to businesses.

Given our limited resources, we would first start selling only in the US.

Most people with sufficiently high income, corporate jobs would find potential in our product, so our initial SOM would be about 15mil units, but once we expand our business model to potentially interested hotels and dry cleaning services in the US, this number would rise to at least 90 mil units.

We could obtain about 38% of the ironing market.
