Idea

Roleplaying in Ukraine is only starting. US publishers are thriving with huge amount of tabletop RPGs. The idea is to start translating these RPGs for Ukrainian market with license from US publishers. No competition on the market, already existing community and large amount of publishing companies may help this business become succesful and profitable.

Current Status

Received a licensing offer from a big publisher on the first tabletop RPG to be translated. Translation in progress

Market

Middle class Ukrainian, mostly male, 20-35 years, loves tabletop games and socializing, living in bigger cities. A small community of roleplayers exist in Ukraine and can grow eventually to a big and strong community if UA editions of tabletop RPGs will emerge on the market. A typical tabletop RPG in Ukraine can easily start from 500-1000 books published per game.

Problem or Opportunity

Acting as soon as possible might create a new thing for UA youth to explore and a monopoly environment for the startup, since no other company in Ukraine is doing this.

Solution (product or service)

Acquiring licenses for translation and publishing of tabletop roleplaying games for the local Ukrainian market.

Competitors

No competitors on the market. Typical customer uses pirated content or untranslated RPGs

Advantages or differentiators

Tabletop RPGs are very unique the only thing that can differentiate a tabletop rpg is another tabletop RPG on another system, other art, quality of book, etc.

Finance

The average price of a tabletop RPG book in USA is 30$. In Ukraine, the price of 20$ for the book will be profitable. Expectations regarding sales - the market can easily consume 500-1000 books per game. Extra editions might be considered basing on the sales

Money will be spent on

Translation, licensing, publishing and small advertising campaign

Offer for investor

Share of the company.

Team or Management

Risks

UA Market might not be ready to consume a lot of these in the first couple of years, since people need additional idea of how this works.
