Startup Streams, an accidental start, exceeds its first milestone of 1000 customers

Along with Coca-Cola, Kellogg’s and Ferrari, Startup Streams is the latest company to add to the list of “accidental starts” after a warehouse in the UK burned. The future founder of Startup Streams Eddie Eastman worked at the warehouse, but when he had no more work after the fire, he decided to go to Indonesia where he met his girlfriend, Nadya.

After some time spent at bali and needing to return to UK due to an expired visa, Eddie was determined to return to bali as soon as possible to see his girlfriend. He decided to use his graphic design and web design skills to sell pre-made businesses with products to sell to help break down barriers to entrepreneurship for those who want to start a business but don’t know where to start.

“I’ve always been involved in entrepreneurial endeavors since I was 12 when I started a skateboard sticker business in school. I’ve always had a rough side, but I wanted to get started in a full-time company to hang out. bali as soon as I can,” Eddie said.

Within days, Eddie had sold his first business on the Shopify Exchange, but accidentally said the store wasn’t exclusive.

“When I made the sale, I contacted the buyer as I thought he hadn’t seen the mistake. However, the buyer said he was happy to buy the business in double meaning I was able to sell the same business multiple times. . Startup Streams was born!” Eddie added.

Eddie was able to return to bali within 60 days of launching Startup Streams due to its success and a few months later, she hired Nadya and four of her friends who were graphic designers and developers but had lost their jobs due to the pandemic.

Startup Streams expanded to sell on the ‘super seller’ Flippa Marketplace and Fiverr Pro before several major pivots in their business model before relaunching in 2021.

“My first client messaged me a year after buying from me and said their store was still doing great, even though I had sold a few of the same businesses since then because it was over $700 per month, which was fantastic to hear.” Eddie continued.

From January 2022, Startup Streams features over 100 prefab businesses for sale and has helped over 1000 entrepreneurs launch businesses or start a side hustle, and continues to do so today.
