An outstanding group of corporate CEOs, leading fund managers, and institutional investors will speak from both their own experience and market knowledge on how US corporations and businesses have done it on their own; how fund managers can access China through US portfolio companies; and, how Asian private equity firms can facilitate this growing trend.

Dickson Yoga

Nature Business: Yoga Studio, Health & Fitness Industry

Funds Required: HK$10M for aggrandizement and facilities upgrade of existing studio and expansion into Kowloon.

Project Details:
This is a good opportunity to invest in an upcoming YOGA studio with a solid customer base, an established brand name & a charismatic Master.

DICKSON YOGA was set up by Master Dickson Lau in November 2003. Dickson is a renowned yogi in HK with over 20 years yoga teaching experience and students all over the territory. He has widespread popularity in the yoga field. Being the Chairman & Chief Master of the HK Yoga Association which he setup, he is frequently invited to perform and interviewed by the media. He is the first in the Chinese community to be recognized as a knowledgeable, experienced & skilful Yoga Master.

DICKSON YOGA has accumulated a sizeable customer base just through internet exposure, free publicity and word of mouth. Sales momentum is rapidly building up with increased brand awareness, but the current DICKSON YOGA is too small to absorb the increasing customer numbers.

DICKSON YOGA is now ready to expand & upgrade itself to capture the new business opportunities brought forth by increased publicity. Expansion funding is sought to move to a larger studio in HK island and set up a second DICKSON YOGA studio in Mongkok to capture the relatively under-tapped market in Kowloon & NT.

The new DICKSON YOGA will be upgraded from a boutique studio to a full size club, with facilities such as sauna, steam, yoga massage room, yoga pilates room and 3- 4 large size studios. We believe there is a high profit potential in the expanded business with Dickson's brand name appeal, his unique yoga style, the yoga hype which is still in full vigor. Stable income flow can be quickly secured by accumulating a monthly auto-pay customer base.

DICKON YOGA has a strong team. He is the only Master in HK who leads a strong team of local high quality yoga instructors. The new management team also has personnel with extensive Club Management experience, having hands-on experience in the set-up phase and management of large clubs such as California, Planet Yoga and Pure Yoga.
