Business Plan, Financial Model, and Pitch Deck for Clothing Swap SaaS Platform

Business Plan, Financial Model, and Pitch Deck for Clothing Swap SaaS Platform 2 

A Brief Introduction

This case study explores a platform that allows clothing stores, young people, and lower-income individuals to swap clothes. People can reuse and reduce waste by using clothing swap platforms.

By making clothing swaps more attractive and easier and extending their lifespan, the client aims to promote CO2 reduction efforts. Their initial target market is Denmark, and they plan to expand to other European countries. It targets young, fashion-conscious, and low-income customers.

We prepared a detailed financial model, business plan, and pitch deck for our client to facilitate investment funding. The following sections explain what challenges this project faced and how we developed a strategy. A fantastic pitch deck was prepared for investor presentations. 

Problems and Challenges

Problems and Challenges

The clothing swap platform of our client offers a variety of features, categories, and costs that form the basis of its revenue model. To narrow down the pricing to the best possible scenario, it was necessary to develop a dynamic structure for calculating the revenue. Additionally, it is important to analyze the sales strategy that targets specific customers within the market segment. The pricing strategy was further refined by utilizing a direct sales approach. 

To overcome the above challenge, it was necessary to analyze different customer segments and prepare a complete customer profile. There were multiple categories and services involved in the application, each requiring individual attention. To identify the age group of customers and to develop a marketing strategy, our team needed to conduct research. 

To cover the early development costs and other expenses associated with the clothing swap SaaS-based business model, investments were required. To calculate the total investment requirements, it was essential to develop an optimal and customized financial model that evaluates each segment of the business. Furthermore, it was necessary to calculate investment returns to provide the client with an estimate of what they could offer investors.


Our team conducted in-depth research to formulate customer profiles, which included evaluating the churn rate and customer loyalty for each revenue and subscription plan. Since young customers easily switch to other brands and platforms, we prepared a detailed marketing plan to attract young customers and strategies to sustain them over time. 

To determine the most competitive pricing for the client’s clothing swap platform while maintaining profitability, Myinvestorchoice conducted detailed research and analysis of the market. In addition, it contributed to the development of a marketing strategy that targeted specific customers for our clients. 

As a result of our market research, we have finalized the pricing model for channels. Furthermore, we identified which category and channel generate the most profit and bring the greatest number of customers. However, we identified how these categories could be profitable, expand the customer base, and identify the best channels for generating various types of revenue. 

Additionally, our team analyzed the average price-sale ratio and average transaction per user based on market research to arrive at more accurate estimates of revenue and cost. 

Based on our market research, we formulated the pricing model of channels and identified the categories and channels that generate the greatest profit and attract the most customers. The key was to determine how these categories could be profitable, expand the customer base, and identify suitable channels for different types of revenue.

Using our Client’s business model, you can exchange your wardrobe with other users, giving you access to new items at no additional charge. Myinvestorchoice prepared forecasts for subscription levels with different fees, the number of deliveries per customer and transactions, and the segmentation of customers for the SaaS model. 

A detailed payable and receivable schedule was developed based on multiple payment options to assist in tracking cash flow and profitability. Our team forecasted revenue and costs for different categories based on the business model. 



Five major competitors in the industry were identified and a comparative analysis was prepared to explain the features of each competitor’s products and pricing strategies. In addition to second-hand apparel, the competitors also provide interior and furniture services. There is a gradual increase in the number of services offered by the industry. To attract customers, Myinvestorchoice emphasizes the competitive edge.

An Analysis Of SWOT

An Analysis Of SWOT  

The SWOT analysis was prepared to explain the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats of this clothing swap company’s business model. The company offers competitive prices, as we have found. A further characteristic of Gen Y and Z is that they are disloyal to brands; they are easily attracted to and diverted from other brands. In addition, the company charged a small markup on each delivery compared to its competitors. 

The company had several opportunities to obtain partnerships and sell sustainable brands to its users. Additionally, the industry is growing, competition is becoming more rigid, and users are shifting to other platforms, which represents a significant threat to our client. 

It’s Market 

According to our market research, the average Danish individual purchases 16 kg of clothing each year. 80 per cent of clothing that is discarded is 20% used, which means that it can be used more, but because they have become old-fashioned or, in some cases, the size has changed, they don’t value them, and people follow trends.

Drivers Of Growth

Second-hand clothes are expected to claim the second-largest share of this segment. Second-hand, rental, and subscription have the highest exponential growth rates. Conversely, mid-priced speciality and value chains will lose market share. A detailed overview of growth drivers is provided, including data from 2009 to 2029, showing the expected nine-fold increase in second-hand clothing sales.

The client’s SaaS-based clothing swap platform identified that European countries offer the most opportunities for recycling fashion. Almost a third (35%) of Europeans have worn second-hand clothing. Italian, German, UK, Polish, Belgian, French, Dutch, and Portuguese countries have growth potential.  

Marketing Strategy

We formulate a marketing strategy for our client to increase awareness of reusability. Marketing strategies include social media marketing, influencer marketing, Google Ads, codes and discounts, algorithm, hammer strategy, and retargeting. 

Financial Highlights

The Myinvestorchoice prepared a detailed input assumptions model based on the client’s requirements. The sheet includes revenue assumptions and investments based on owners and private investors. To formulate our client’s SaaS-based business model, we developed other essential assumptions and schedules. 

Statistical Analysis Of Revenue

White Label Licensing SaaS is forecasted in an ideal business environment with excellent marketing strategies, including visitors, subscribers, new subscribers, stylists, and revenue generated. 

Statistical Reports

We forecast our clients’ profit & loss, balance sheet, and cash flow for five years. As a result of the model, the company will get better returns from its four years. 

Breakeven Analysis

According to the breakeven analysis developed by Myinvestorchoice, our client will achieve breakeven in the third year. From year 2 to year 5, the contribution margin would increase. 

Value Of A Company

Myinvestorchoice uses the Discounted Cash Flow Method to forecast company valuation. The clothing swap company’s net present value and terminal value have been estimated. The minimum equity share percentage to be offered to investors was calculated using this value. This is important in investment rounds. Based on the forecasted free cash flow, we estimated the equity share for investors.
