About Main Street :

- We're solving a problem that 62% of Americans have

- 62% of Americans last year thought about starting a business. The #1 reason they didnt was that they didnt know where to start. Currents options are:

- Going independent is risky: no support or direction

- Paying a franchise which is expensive: franchises charge $100K+ fees to get started, take 10% of topline revenue, don't provide marketing support or technology

- The market we're going after is bigger than e-Commerce

- Were disrupting the $2.3T franchise industry by removing the franchise fee and offering a tech-enabled franchise like product. Were starting with home painting where our biggest competitor is CertaPro a $550M revenue franchise (1% market share) before quickly taking on Neighborly Brands as we expand categories (pest control, lawn care, etc.).

- As we expand categories, our customer does not change

- Our customer is an aspiring business owner, like Nick or Hardin who doesn't care what type of business they start, as long as it is profitable.

- Our customers are not actually the one painting houses or completing roofing jobs, rather they are the ones that hire people to do the job.

- Our customer has years of experience in sales and general management, which makes them suitable for any type of business which is why as we expand to 100 categories, our customer does not change.

- Our solution is an end to end platform to help you start, grow and run a business

- Main Street is a combination of well-known technology platforms that provides an Uber-like simple experience to starting a business

- Stripe Atlas : Helping you incorporate and set up legal logistics for your business

- Duolingo : Learn a new skill (in our case it is about a specific type of business)

- Shopify : The operating tools to run your business

- Womply : A marketing stack to drive your customer

- Take a look at MainStreet's Product walk-through here.

- We're backed by top investors and have a world-class team you will get to work with

- We're a seed-stage startup and have raised $10M+ from top investors including Greylock and Khosla Ventures. Our team previously worked at places like Uber, DoorDash, Swiggy, OpenDoor, Amazon, and OYO.
