ReStart Up – Not without my business plan (Episode 5)

ReStart Up – Not without my business plan (Episode 5)


And this would be
our company’s logo. I like it.
-How can you like that? I look like a psycho.
-Girl, you did say we have to stand out. The thing is,
we need money to print it. Well, I also need money
to pay all the ingredients, and to get some help for the videos. Guys, it’s time to face the music,
we need an investor. Where is Christopher? and why he’s not here
asking for money for his software? He’s been out of my eye
for a couple of days, I haven’t seen him
around the apartment. I’m okay, I’m okay. Where are your glasses?
-I got sick of them, and I’ve probably lost
my contact lenses, you know. Anyway, how do you like Christophe 2.0? Well, I don’t know,
your hair and your clothes, you almost, just almost look
like a human being. Cutie at 6 o’clock, leave her to me, guys. What is she like?
-Well, she’s tall, cute, brown hair, “mmm”,
just like I like them. Oh, that’s Nicole. So that’s where you’ve been, you go, dog! No way, Christopher wouldn’t even know
what to do with a girl like that, it must be his sister or something.
-Well, I don’t know how it works in Spain, but in France,
we don’t greet like this our sisters. Okay, Lola,
try to blow off some steam through work,
that’s the best thing you can do? I don’t think she’s working, she’s found Nicole’s profile
on the Internet. I saw him first. Here we go again.
-It was me who discovered what he hides
underneath those geeky glasses and Star Wars pajamas, you know?
-I’m sorry to interrupt your little talking over here,
but have you seen what Nicole does for a living? Christopher! Oh, your new girlfriend! You kept that for yourself,
you’re a champ. Yeah, we’re just getting
to know each other at the moment, but she’s a great girl.
-Girl? She’s almost 10 years
older than you, I almost called social services.
-Anyway, I’m sure she’s a wonderful and great girl, and you know, maybe you could just talk to her and mention… Okay, what our friend
is trying to say here is that she can be our new investor. What? No, no, no, I’m not blowing this. It took me a long time
to find a girl like this, and look, what change, I’m sorry. You are blind as a bat,
this isn’t you, Christopher. I don’t want to be me,
this is a much better me. Please, guys, please, don’t get involved. Okay? Fine. Okay, anyway, we’re going to La Traviata tonight, I have to get ready, get dressed as… You need a guide dog
more than you need a girlfriend, Christopher. So we ignore him, right?
-Absolutely. I mean, we need
to catch them by surprise and get Nicole on board
with the business. Lola? Okay, okay, as if I had a choice. He said they’re having dinner
at La Traviata, right? Well, I know one of the waitresses. Is that… maybe… What are you doing here? Hi!
-Hey! Oh, what a coincidence! Oh, let’s go. Hi.
-Hello. What a coincidence.
-Forgive me, please. We just came to celebrate
the starting of our company. What a coincidence, now, did Christopher tell you
that we’re building a company? Oh, he’s so discreet, well, let us tell you all about it. So the software will redirect you to our website and it will be
more or less like this. Aren’t you working? I’m on a break. It’s getting quite late,
I think we should go… No, you can’t, I mean, you haven’t tried your drinks yet,
have you seen yours? Please, we’re not 5 years old. Yeah, and some of us
aren’t even close to 35 anymore. Well, “ma bèlle”, everybody
wants to get that “yeah”, right? And… for this, what’s the initial investment
you say you have? Well, it’s hard to put a price on a child’s smile, but I’m thinking something like… 5.000 or so.
-Or so? And in what part
of this detailed business plan do you mention
the return on investment? And the sales predictions
mid and long term? Well, there are a few little things yet to be defined, but…
-You need a more detailed business plan
if you want an investor to show any interest, this is disastrous. How are you planning
to get anyone’s attention if you don’t even have
a demo of the software to show? And, by the way, totally rude and unprofessional to crash a personal dinner
like this. But at least it shows initiative, I mean, if you give us
a couple of weeks, a little bit more time, maybe,
Christopher…, oh, no. God. Some more red wine, Lola. Nicole.
-I’m serious, one more muffin from that girl
and I’m going to vomit my meal. They can be intimidating at first,
but when you get to know them… I’ve no interest in knowing
that bunch of freaks, even less getting into business.
-But they’re my friends. Then you should get new friends,
thank God you’re not like them. What are you doing? I’ve told you
they make you look like a loser. Well, I’m a loser, Nicole,
and my friends, maybe they’re losers too,
but at least, they’re good people. Look, I… I don’t think
we should be together anymore. I just can’t be with someone
as close-minded as you. Well, maybe we still haven’t found
an investor, but we learned
a valuable lesson today. The most important thing to us
is our identity, and although
not everyone appreciates that, is important to take pride
in those that believe in you. Seriously, dudes, you liked our episode
