Interview with Crijn Janssen, CEO of Straetus International
Who would be your ideal candidate?
I don't know whether the ideal candidate exists, but we are looking for an ambitious and enterprising candidate who wants to put Straetus on the map. To help customers with debtor management and collection together with local franchisees.
Which Areas/Location would you like to find Franchisees?
We do not specifically look for candidates in country a or b but based on existing locations the most obvious countries are France or England or one in Scandinavia or the Balkans.
What is the starting Investment amount required?
Stronger together through franchise is our slogan, and we propagate it everywhere. Also in the initial investment, we want to grow together with our partners. So from 20000 euros you can already start at Straetus.
Do you need experience or have some background in Finance to become a Franchisee?
Experience is not important but is a plus. Experience in entrepreneurship is especially desirable. The financial and collection support the head office and the system a lot, so experience here is not a must.
