Element 33. Manageable Capital Requireme... > The Coin-Operated Laundry—Manageable...

The Coin-Operated Laundry—Manageable Capital Requirements score: 8

Are you tackling a highly innovative, technologically sophisticated idea that requires heavy research and even heavier capitalization? Not really. You are buying some special laundry equipment and leasing a building. It’s just not very challenging when it comes to the capital required and I would award it an 8. If you do find that you are confronting a $100 million + capital nut, make certain that your expenditures drive the cost of entry up by some multiple so that you can enjoy uniquenesses that are unassailable. Furthermore, if you are in this situation, stop. Ask yourself if the capitalization can be so broken up and prioritized that it can become manageable. If not, assign this element a –10 because it will actually be working against you, to the maximum.
