I want to build a business for online remittance services from pther countries to the philippines. First, my target is in singapore because my brother is currently working there. We just thought his co-workers there might be good start as our target for potential clients.

Hi Harold! Thanks for your comment. My first question to you is “What sets you apart from the current remittance services?” For example, Transferwise is a solid remittance service. Their UVP (Unique Value Proposition) is that they convert the currency for you so that the banks don’t have to. This helps in cases like where freelancers need to receive USD in India where they have strict regulations such as the FIRC and others. Utilizing a Lean Model Canvas to chart your business model and all its facets would be the quickest way to find where your next steps are and if there are any holes in your business plan.
