My name is Andrey Valiev, Im 42 years old. “Mousehunt” — my first it startup, which I started at the end of 2014.
Prior to this I worked for 15 years in the industries of FMCG, Commodity and enterprise companies that are leaders in their markets. At various times he was responsible for different functional areas. It, sales, marketing, logistics, individual projects and even businesses. Last position was sales Director of Microsoft in the corporate segment.
The work was always intensive, and do the car no time, causing discomfort. Personal experience certainly influenced the choice of areas for establishment of business. The idea on creation of mobile mechanics arose in March 2014, and in September, we launched a project. First team consisted of three people, now employs 11 people, not counting the masters.
“Mousehunt” offers field maintenance foremen in time and in a convenient location seven days a week. We dont need to spend money on rent, utilities and other options — and, as a consequence, do not need to “sew up” these costs in the price of spare parts. So, according to our study, for easy maintenance.
General inspection, replacement of engine oil, oil, air and cabin filters — clients of salons overpay 10% to 50%, and for the repair of the car — 30-70%. The idea to create a project that connects mechanics and car enthusiasts, we pushed the taxi market. It in the same way “Berezitovy” and captured online services, giving passengers access to a broad base of taxi drivers and drivers opening up a huge market of customers. As a result, the cost of travel fell and became fixed, and instead of the broken Zhiguli and Daewoo Nexia were to come from new clean car. In the Accelerator of FRII we received investments in the amount of 1.4 million rubles.
Working with the tracker Fund, we have confirmed the hypothesis that “ubersetze” archaic industry of car repairs will eventually bear fruit. Low prices and the opportunity to call the master directly to the house seven days a week brought to us for a thousand Muscovites. We are confident that this is only the beginning, and I hope soon to go to the regions.
