Concierge Club is an early-stage company looking to raise $6 million of additional funding in a Series A financing in December 1999. Mary Naylor, the founder and CEO of Concierge Club, is a dynamic and energetic leader who has previously received backing from a Washington, D.C.-based angel investor group. She established her business in 1987 as an on-site "brick and mortar" concierge service providing concierge services to commercial office buildings, residential buildings, and corporate headquarters. With the subsequent growth in on-line technology, Naylor is seeking funding in 1999 to become the "first nationwide concierge service to offer full Internet capabilities to companies seeking to offer these services as a customer or employee benefit." The case includes materials from Concierge Club's business plan and pitch to investors, which allows students to assess the reasonableness for her forecasts, the level of competition, the adequacy of the $6 million in funding, and the value of the company. A key issue is whether the company can perform on the national level with a service based on exceptional local knowledge and assistance. The case is designed as a negotiation exercise in which teams of students are assigned to play the role of investor and entrepreneur (Naylor).
