Didja’s main product, LocalBTV, delivers local broadcast stations via the internet to any device anytime, anywhere at a compelling price point.

LocalBTVserves antenna TV to users in the same geographic area (called a DMA; ie Los Angeles area ‘SoCalBTV’).

 

CEO Jim Long’s interview at Cheddar

Business Documents

MG cp Summary

Huge growing market

  • LocalBTV is a $1 billion revenue business opportunity in a market which is undeserved and growing with cord cutters and new home cord nevers
  • 2023 TAM is 40M+ households at $15-18 per month and many additional revenue streams are possible
  • Local broadcast antennaTV homes are missing out on the significant and growing amount of video viewing taking place on mobile devices, PCs and connected TVs. LocalBTV streams local channels to these devices, targeting todays 20M+ antenna homes (9% of homes in 2010; now16% and growing) and the 10M+ homes that do not receive broadcast TV at all.

Serves younger, Millennial viewers

LocalBTV puts live streaming local channels on the screens younger viewers use for video. They enjoy the casual nature of live streams, discovering new local content and channel surfing; a perfect compliment to the more labor-intensive Netflix and/or HBO Now apps

 

Little direct competition

Difficult space for large TV distribution companies to make money but perfect for a company like Didja. We are a platform not a distributor.

 

A capital-efficient business model combining the power of broadcast TV with the internet

Simple, fast, inexpensive

Purpose built cloud-app architecture is the least expensive way to provide broadcast TV to apps.  It is regarded by pilot users and broadcasters as the simplest fastest channel changing app available and the only one for broadcast TV.

 

Platform designed to create new revenues for broadcasters

LocalBTV is not a national brand that competes with broadcast  partners.  We are a win win platform.  They make more revenue and we make revenue.  That’s it.

 

Business Model

Freemium mode for inexpensive customer acquisition will lead to more subscription users faster when we roll out across the USA. Platform enables new revenue streams and free promotion for broadcasters.

 

LocalBTV will capture non-cable-bundle viewers and deliver more subscribers

  • Streams all stations in a local market to connected TVs, PCs and smartphones
  • Delivers meaningful new revenue to broadcasters – ‘Found money & more Nielsen measured viewers’

Weedguide

Location: San Diego, California

Sector: Cannabis, Technology.

Add to Shortlist
Express Interest

WGE INC is as software company whose primary business is Weedguide; a vertical search engine and content discovery platform for cannabis. Powered by machine learning and advanced proprietary crawler technology, Weedguide gives cannabis consumers and businesses a simpler and more intuitive way to find information.

Weedguide’s index currently includes millions of articles, videos, products, dispensary locations, recipes and strains across the web, making it the largest resource for finding cannabis content in the world.

Business Documents

MG cp Summary
  • Market Size & Trajectory – The cannabis sector is booming with nearly 40 million cannabis consumers in North America today – a number that is expected to rise to 50 million in the US alone by 2020. There is tremendous growth currently happening in the industry with estimates predicting continued growth accelerating in the next few years as legalization expands. Interest in both the “plant-touching” (cultivation and distribution) and ancillary businesses (accessories and technology) show incredible growth potential.

 

  • Opportunity for Innovation – Weedguide entered the market to fill a serious void. As the number of cannabis consumers continues to grow, the need for access to reliable information, secure online shopping and quality content is growing. Today’s savvy consumers demand professional, reliable multi-platform experiences. Weedguide is working to break down old stereotypes  and build a product based on innovative technology and anticipating tomorrow’s consumer needs.

 

  • Scalable Technology – Unlike traditional brick and mortar cannabis opportunities whose growth is limited by physical location and government regulations, Weedguide’s technology is built to scale. As consumer interest grows worldwide, we will be able  to serve the growing number of cannabis users by facilitating education, entertainment and shopping in countries around the world. In addition, our crawler technology and business approach translate well into other vertical markets.

 

  • Ancillary Cannabis Business – As a non-flower-touching business, we have fewer restrictions placed on us by federal and state laws. There is less risk and fluctuation in ancillary cannabis brands, with greater opportunity for growth into other areas as the market changes.

 

  • Data Intelligence – By collecting and analyzing thousands of data points daily, we have a comprehensive understanding of cannabis consumer behaviour, interests and demographics. This data will continue to develop with our platform to create a valuable resource with unlimited potential for various applications. As the realm of big data grows, being the source of this information will lead to many opportunities both in and out of the cannabis industry.
  • Comprehensive index of cannabis vertical – Weedguide’s proprietary cannabis crawling technology indexes millions of pieces of content from heterogeneous sources.  This reduces the time necessary to find the appropriate content by eliminating false positives and superfluous results unrelated to the query.

 

  • Content categorization –By focusing on a specific vertical, Weedguide has a deep understanding of the various cannabis personas and the attributes that are of particular interest. By identifying and tagging content appropriately a categorization and faceting model is created and presented in the UI that enables users to locate the content of interest through manual selection. In short, Weedguide will help the user find what they are looking for quickly and easily.

 

  • Content Discovery – Content categorization and tagging enables a high level of fidelity for determining related content and providing a mechanism for content discovery. For example if one searches for a particular ailment,  content may be surfaced related to treatment options,  support groups, strain location, strain reviews and more.  This enables a vistor to find exhaustive information, from multiple sources, without having to execute another search or query another website or application.

 

  • Vistor behavior and preferences – Weedguide collects information about what content the vistor interacts with from a variety of sources.  By pairing general sociodemographic information with online cannabis browsing preferences,Weedguide can understand cannabis preferences and connect online behavior to offline cannabis consumption and behavior.

 

  • Economies of scale – Unlike traditional websites, search engines have little, if any, content creation costs.  This makes for operational efficiency and scale. A larger staff to support content creation and diversity is not required.

Claudio Cañive, CEO

  • Founded and funded multiple companies including a content management SAAS company that  served the largest media brands in the  US and a venture fund in the UK.
  • Strong entrepreneurial drive and leadership skills with an ability to motivate teams to deliver excellent  results.

Ghassan Barazi, Co-founder & President

Ghassan Barazi, a mechanical engineer with a strong entrepreneurial drive, began his career as a business owner in 1989 when  he formed CAD Venture, a company specializing in computer aided design for the automotive industry. In 1991, Ghassan  tapped into the emerging laser technology industry and co-founded The Laser Eye Institute which, by the end of 1998,  evolved into ICON Laser Eye Centres, Inc. ICON quickly became the fastest growing laser vision correction business in the  world, trading on NASDAQ. With a global reach extending across North America and Europe and into South America, ICON  became the world-leader and international provider of Excimer Laser Vision Correction (LVC), growing to 40 centres world-  wide. Ghassan also spent a considerable portion of his career developing highly successful plastic surgery programs for  private and public medical facilities in Detroit and Las Vegas prior to 2008 when he became the President & CEO of CI Pharma, a radiopharmaceutical supply company and Care Imaging Cancer Diagnostic Centre, a privatized cancer diagnostic  imaging company with locations in both Windsor and the Greater Toronto Area.
