The Founders 007


The Founders 007

We are aiming to establish 114 shops in association with Scarlet Maguire gallery in these LONDON areas listed below. We need two founders from each area. Estimated annual turnover of each shop £200-£300k. That is a potential OTE (on target earnings) of £60,000-£90,000 per annum, for each founder. If you want to become founding member we can teach you to fundraise locally the £15,000 you will need to invest in the setting up of your own spaceshift business you will then own 30% per person of that spaceshift profit for the life of the businesss. The remaining profit will go to Youth Parliament and the Children's Law Practice of Youth Parliament. This is ideologically sound, gives practical experience in setting up a business and is an attractive prospect financially.To attend our breakfast style training in London King's Cross once a month for 12 months at contact Jo 020 7278 4404 and book now.

Percentages and possibility of an investor/lender

spacshift will take 10% of overall shop trading for administration to continue good work to help set up the Children's Law Practice of Youth Parliament.

30% of all shop trading as well as 100% membership will go to Youth Parliament. Specifically 10% to the ongoing and good work of UKYP, 10% to the good and ongoing work of A National Voice and 10% to the good and ongoing work of NAYPIC. spaceshift is a social enterprise to fund the establishment of children's rights.

60% for each shop will go to ‘the founders 007', 30% to each young person founding a spaceshift (25% if investor gets involved).

If an investor/lender wanted to get involved with a £7,653,000,oo investment they would get 10% of all shop profits. They would see a return of £3.4 million per annum from 114 shops. They would also get all their money back in one year paid by the first annual membership for Youth Parliament.
