Documentary Hub Business Model

What are my capabilities? Delivering entertainment and learning. I believe that documentaries have a dual purpose in which they both entertain and help one take on new knowledge. I don’t see it as a cinema, but a sanctuary for documentary devotees. Above is a list of how I will procure the resources. Affordable loss will be time ( my own and others: 12 weekends), wasted tea and coffee and $2200 fixed costs for one semester.

Comments: What can the Documentary Hub do? It can deliver food for the brain. It would be the way of delivering the easiest option to learn about new topics. I believe that documentaries have a dual purpose in which they both to entertain and help one take on new knowledge. It will create intellectual stimulation and a like-minded community.

I have found a true ( willing to pay) first customer. She is a work colleague and documentary enthusiast with many like-minded contacts. They all live within the Auckland CBD vicinity.

Even though it is primarily a cultural entrepreneurship venture, making a modest profit would give me more money to expand my options when obtaining documentaries and speakers. I will also use as much volunteers as possible, However, I will also be mindful of unexpected costs . If I accumulate 60 subscriptions, my variables will increase for tea/coffee, also the more people legally it would also get more expense; so I anticipate $5000 over the semester.

I have managed to secure a facility for doco viewing( if my venture was to go ahead). This is an old lecture room which has been decommissioned for use by my colleagues and students during the week. I can have total access on weekends.

I have decided to approach Pascal who is doing his PhD in documentary film at University of Auckland. I see Pascal as a valuable first customer. First his connections with documentary film academics, students and patrons alike. Second, like Pascal, I also work at the UoA and can gain easier access to facilities to host and market film events. Finally, Pascal's large resource of documentary films and literature.
