A note from Rocky, Founder of Whats Doing

Dear Prospective Investor,

Let me introduce you to Whats Doing, the app that could change your night!

Whats Doing started as an idea from direct experience and the pain points my friends and  I experienced when planning a night out.    We would debate as to which bar to go to. We would argue about which bar was trending, we didn’t know too much about new bars, as this information is pretty hard to come by, and didn’t hear of entertainment or offers until it was too late.  Invariably, we would end up going to the same, old place.  

I used to think to myself, what if there was an app that could just show us our best options for each night? What if there was an app that proactively let me know immediate offers, entertainment and told me about the latest, trending bars.  

The idea resonated with venue and bar owners and friends, and friends of friends. Venue and bar owners shared their pain points they faced, needing to stand out from a crowd, and needing a way to reach an audience that was effective, immediate and allowed them to promote and attract locals or out-of-towners.  Friends provided feedback on features, such as links to Uber, the ability to pay for food and drinks from the app.  

The idea was seeded, developed and it is exciting that we’ve now broken through the start-up phase - we’ve reached the milestone of proven app and proven market, early revenue and approximately 15,000 app users, and growing.  

One of the most frequently asked questions about the app, is how does Whats Doing determine which venues qualify for our platform?  The answer? I go and test the venues myself - and subject to the raise outcome, this will be a larger, on-ground team.  Our criteria is simple, quality food & beverage, atmosphere and that X factor - that places it in that genuine category of quality.  We’ve all experienced a venue that is a notch above the rest - and we believe that’s what our app users are looking for.

Restrictions are easing and local and interstate venues are opening back up.  People are wanting to get out, socialise and have fun again, and Whats Doing can help them do that. All while supporting local Australian businesses.

I see terrific potential in this Company - quality venues and bars are the beginning.  Our app takes away pain points, and makes experiences that much more enjoyable and easier.   Just one of many plans, we’re soon commencing the integration of a payment gateway - giving app users the ability to pay for food & beverage without needing to tirelessly queue - and giving Whats Doing a second revenue stream. 

Whats Doing is all about taking an ideal experience, building the best app features, developing and testing with the users and running hard and fast to the goal.   

For me, raising money via crowd-sourced funding and having the crowd be part of the future as shareholders is the best way to grow a young, modern company - and that is Whats Doing is all about.  An app for the crowd.    

I am really excited for the opportunity to invite the community to join us on this journey by investing in Whats Doing.  

Also be sure to download the app and try it out, if you’re in Brisbane or on the Gold Coast or planning to visit. More cities are coming soon.

There are many venues in Australia with the majority being pubs, RSLs, surf clubs, and hotels and other venues that don’t fall within the intended strategic aim of the app.   The Company qualifies an venue and bar based upon a set of in-house criteria which we have established to help shape the app.

This criteria includes, but is not limited to: review of food and beverages offered including cocktails, craft beer, food type;  and entertainment such as live music or other events.  However we think that the most telling criteria of a great venue and bar is their vibe and atmosphere - will the Whats Doing app user enjoy their experience there?

      Crowd-sourced funding is risky. Issuers using this facility include new or rapidly growing ventures. Investment in these types of ventures is speculative and carries high risks.

      You may lose your entire investment, and you should be in a position to bear this risk without undue hardship.

      Even if the company is successful, the value of your investment and any return on the investment could be reduced if the company issues more shares.

      Your investment is unlikely to be liquid. This means you are unlikely to be able to sell your shares quickly or at all if you need the money or decide that this investment is not right for you.

      Even though you have remedies for misleading statements in the offer document or misconduct by the company, you may have difficulty recovering your money.

      There are rules for handling your money. However, if your money is handled inappropriately or the person operating this platform on which this offer is published becomes insolvent, you may have difficulty recovering your money.

      Ask questions, read all information given carefully, and seek independent financial advice before committing yourself to any investment.
