Questions and Answers

Why is your company going to succeed?
We believe our success will come, and already is coming, from the 3 following factors:

1) A disruptive product with an unique selling proposition

In a world where customers are connected 24/7 and where consuming habits have completely shifted, turning to digital has become a necessity, as much as an opportunity, for small businesses.

However, most of these businesses are late in their digital transformation and usually for 3 reasons : they don't have enough financial resources, they don't have enough time or human resources and/or they simply don't know where to start or how to do it...

And that is exactly why Discodery is such a unique solution! When subscribing to our model, our customers gain access to an affordable (9,90$/month excluding discounts and promotions), all-in-one (website + mobile app + management software with over 50 key features to optimize their business) and fully-serviced solution, meaning we take care of everything for them - from design to development, publication, maintenance and security.

That unique selling proposition is a real game-changer for millions of businesses all around the world!


2) A truly customer-centric company

At Discodery, we really pride ourselves in putting our customers are at the heart of our project and trying to be truly customer-centric. For those who don’t know this term, ”customer-centricity" is an approach to doing business, even a philosophy, that focuses on providing a positive customer experience in order to drive profit and gain competitive advantage.

Customer-centricity usually has 3 main advantages: it leads to very high customer satisfaction; it allows to create a true and loyal community around your business because the customer is involved in parts of the decision-making process; and it really makes your innovation process much more efficient because you get to learn who is your customer, how we thinks and what he expects out of your product.

In our case, we believe adopting this philosophy was more than essential, given our business model that is based on customer loyalty and recurring payments. Practically speaking, we have implemented that by surveying our customers on a weekly basis, asking their opinion about our product, the new features they would like to get, our customer service, the quality of our designs and customer journey, … That has allowed us to prioritize our development focus, to implement new features that are almost instantly adopted and globally speaking to make our customers really feel like they are part of the team.

Furthermore, we have offered all of our customers to join our Discodery Partners program (https://partners.discodery.com), that allows them to talk about Discodery around them and earn 25% commission on each sale they make (!). That has 2 great advantages: our customers are financially incentivized to learn how to use our product (e.g less questions coming in, less customer support required, …) and since commissions are paid every month, it creates a long-term, mutually beneficial relationship between our customers and us, resulting in much lower churn rate.

3) A revolutionary approach to market

Finally, we believe the third key of our success is our unique go-to market strategy. While we can’t reveal too much information to avoid competitors stealing our strategies, and along more traditional marketing strategies, we’ve been investing a lot of time, energy and resources into developing proprietary systems that rely on automation, vitality, affiliation and incentivization to grow at a very high rate.

We’re already seeing the results of this investment and are very confident in the outcome in the medium- and long-term.
Where did your team members meet originally?
The initial Discodery team is composed of Florent Daquet, Lorenzo Meneghini and Nicolas Mechelany. They were soon joined by Basile Durst and Mathieu Meyer, who were the first employees of the company and are now full-time partners.

After working together on some high-scale web projects for a few years, Lorenzo, Florent and myself (Nicolas) founded Discodery in late 2017 with the (not-so-simple) mission of allowing any small business to access high-quality digital tools at a very affordable price.

The three of us had very complementary skills, good experience in the industry and most importantly, shared a very strong drive towards entrepreneurship.

So in November 2017, we quit our jobs, teamed up and started working hard on building our product.

Our vision was the following, local businesses are getting eaten by big corporations and e-commerce giants because they simply don't have access to the same weapons, and that is for 3 reasons:

- Softwares are way too expensive. Anything more advanced than a simple website can cost thousands of dollars;
- Softwares are often too complicated to use and not adapted for regular, family-sized businesses;
- Softwares require time and energy to build and even more importantly, to maintain.

So we got to work and slowly developed Discodery into what it is today: an all-in-one solution that allows any small business to get its own e-commerce website, its own mobile app and its own management software, in less than 72h and for a few dollars per month.

After 12 months of intense development, we finally launched our product in late 2018 and have grown non-stop ever since.

We now count over 2000 customers on 3 continents and have rolled out over 5000 e-commerce websites in that period. Our clients are now able to launch their own mobile apps natively on iOS and Android. And our management software now includes over 50 key features that allow our customers to manage all aspects of their business from social media to team schedule and automated invoicing (you can find the full list here: https://discodery.com/en/myrestaurant/key-features)

We are now really looking forward to the next phase of our growth, and we are very happy to have you with us in the adventure.

We truly aim to make the Discoin a global e-commerce payment facilitator that will allow us, our customers and all of their customers to exchange goods and services more easily, with more privacy and less commissions. And why not every single e-commerce platform, down the road?
What are the top five risks you see for your business?
1) Dependency on third-parties

With limited resources and in order to grow fast, we are currently relying on a certain number of partners, suppliers and/or third-parties to get our product out there.

While none of these partners hold a critical position (they could potentially all be replaced if the need arises), we believe it is our duty to reduce our dependency on such third-parties because it represents a risk towards our business.

Indeed, we are never sheltered from policy changes, price increase, technical issue or full-on termination of business from one of them, which could have negative impact on our business and the business of the customers who trust us.

Furthermore, most of our customers are small businesses that have limited time, understanding and/or interest when it comes to digital and, as their provider, we feel we have a moral responsibility towards them in that regards. That is why it is essential for us to have as much control on our technology as we can, and that includes our blockchain (which is one of the reasons why we are building the Discoin).

Now with that being said, and for full disclosure, this is a long-term vision that will be built slowly over time - we are nowhere near full autonomy and will keep relying on quality partners to grow our business in the next few years.

2) Increased Competition

Like any business, we face the risk of increased competition, especially from bigger players. That is why we will keep heavily innovating and disrupting our industry, while building a strong community around our project.

3) Lack of Available Payment Solutions

As you may know, Discodery operates in a lot of countries where online payments - and recurring payments on top of that - can be difficult, slow, expensive (high commissions), … The lack of available payment solutions also prevents us from entering a certain number of markets that would otherwise be very attractive to us.

That is actually one of the main challenges we are trying to address through Discoin - for us, our customers and anyone in those countries who would like to buy and sell online.

4) Bad Execution

Like any startup, having a good idea is not what matters most: having a perfect execution is! And while we believe we have a unique, experienced and diverse team that we trust at 100%, it is impossible to fully exclude bad execution as a risk towards our business.

To reduce that exposure, we of course implemented processes and policies to review and assess all the work that is being done within Discodery. We also actively rely on our team of senior and seasoned advisors to guide us as we grow and face new challenges.

5) Excessive regulations



Cryptocurrencies, and blockchain in general, is still an immature industry which will in all likelihood become more or more regulated in the months/years to come. While regulation will provide a most welcome stable environment for all stakeholders (investors, issuers, exchange platforms, …) to grow and innovate, excessive regulations could affect our ability to enter certain markets.
