  3. Well, being on campus for 3.5 months (Mid May to August) is equivalent to a University semester period; however I am glad to be part of the 2019 youth team; this competition teaches one who they really are in the entrepreneurial world.

    It brings out your strengths & weakness, are you good at collaboration, contribution, persistent, patient, embrace competition and learn from it to mention but a few.

  4. Mikhail Gorbachev

    I will speak today as a politician, and not so much as the chairman of the Gorbachev Foundation. My public life is connected in so many ways to politics, and I feel it is best if I address you from that perspective. Indeed, politics is an area of vital concern in the world in which we live, and we will not be able to solve the world’s general problems without solving its political problems.

    To begin, I would like to draw your attention to the imperative nature of today’s topic: Creating a New Civilization. For me, it is a very familiar theme, and yet it still raises a number of questions. What do we mean by this? What is that we are calling for? Are we attempting to push the historical process forward artificially? Anything that sprouts from the soil of a particular social setting has a prospect for the future and progresses naturally. However, if that prospect is imposed by force, it would not be very successful.

    The theme Creating a New Civilization” has a touch of subjectivism in it a suggestion of overturning or slowing down the historical process, or perhaps altering it in a dramatic way. It gives rise to some important questions. What will be the fate of existing civilizations? Are they to be gotten rid of in the course of creating the new civilization? Or will they quietly leave the stage of their own accord?

  6. I believe that the organizers of this Forum, by choosing this theme, intend to draw attention to the fact that currently, right before our eyes, civilization is undergoing a process of profound change. New ways of life are emerging, and studies of these new trends are being made in the field of social science.

  7. The findings of these studies are probably most relevant to politics. Furthermore, it is important to arm civil institutions and ordinary citizens with knowledge of this new emerging world. And from that point of view, I support the idea of “creating a new civilization,” as expressed by the theme of the Forum.

  8. The velocity of history has increased apace in recent years, and because of that there is an increased danger that we might fall behind, in terms of our consciousness, and this can lead, and already has led, to mistakes being made in how we arrange and manage our world.

  9. The historical process is not set in stone; a significant role is played by individuals. A great deal in the historical process depends on people and their actions. I think most researchers would agree that history is not a behemoth that cannot be affected or altered.

  10. Well, being on campus for 11 days now equivalent to a travelling to Japan; however I am glad to be part of the 2019 youth team; this competition teaches one who they really are in the entrepreneurial world.

  12. The competition has brought out the spirit of resilience, persistence, collaboration, patience and above all time management & multi tasking in me. You can’t forget about your idea even for a single day lest the blue bar will shift behind at the speed of lighting. The psychology behavior you learn from here is so applicable to the business world.

  13. Ages and ages ago in space I had many children. And
    after millions of years your ancestors were born. I
    have loved all living things very dearly. Under my
    loving care they developed and grew up as good
    friends

  14. You have been too greedy and you cut down so many trees that many natural forests have
    become deserts. My body is covered with freckles. Don’t you want to live?

  16. The 2019 Youth Citizens Entrepreneurship Competition has taught me how to keep pushing and what it is to be an entrepreneur and a successful one at that. In the end, I am glad to be part of this year’s competitions because I have learnt a lot on campus.

  20. We should be thanking the campus for providing us the chance to participate and express our opinions concerning different global issues, as well as providing reliable solutions to them. The online training courses also have been a fundamental tool to guide us throughout the competition and beyond.
    Let’s keep this spirit of working harder and supporting one another’s ideas.

  21. c’est campus est pour moi en particulier un moyen d’apprentissage afin de développer mes capacités entrepreneurial et pouvoir avoir une perception claire sur la conception d’un projet ,réaménager les failles de mes projets et faire sa promotion. en tout cas merci.

  22. Hello entrepreneurship-campus Team,
    My honest opinion is, to choose the winners of this competition, the judges panel should consider, how brilliant the idea is and detailed work on the idea rather than concentrating on votes. I have observed that people are giving votes and generic comments on all the ideas without even reading the idea. So deciding on the votes and comments should not be the criteria, other conditions like training completion, mentioned by entrepreneurship-campus are really valid but not vote and comment.Just because of these 2 conditions this competition is becoming biased and not based on idea but just based on unnecessary generic comments and votes. I would really request you to consider this to make this competition unbiased to encourage young entrepreneurs.
    Regards,
    Prajakta Alase

  23. I had lost my one friend in the hand of some cruel people, but I transformed that pain into a
    promise. I promised to save my planet in whatever way I can. Earlier my favorite color was
    blue, but now it is green. I dream of a green planet which will be free of pollution, where birds
    and animals will live freely. Green plants all over the world, I say to myself, Plant for Planet

    Those little steps began to bring a meaningful change to our surrounding environment as we
    worked all together. Day by day, our neighborhood children and our other classmates also
    became inspired to see us

  25. The people of Ghana really will help Japan! My worries disappeared, and I felt truly happy. I
    had always thought that Japan had to help Ghana. But through this experience, I realized that
    people in Ghana also wanted to help Japan in a time of n
    eed. You should bring your
    grandmother to Ghana, said my school teacher, who was worried for me. And a friend asked
    me, If I want to send money to Japan, who should I give it to
    The sad scenes following the earthquake in Japan were shown on TV every
    day. My heart
    ached, and my friends who watched TV were genuinely worried for Japan.
    In Ghana is a medical research institute named for Japanese scientist Hideyo Noguchi. The
    institute sent Ghanaian chocolate to children in Japan who were affected by the earthquake.
    Ghanaian chocolate is very tasty, so I am sure it made them very happy. It was not merely
    chocolate, but chocolate infused with care and encouragement.
    What I learned from this experience is that the world is one. Even between Africa and Asia
    which are so far away, news spreads easily. Usually, Japan is the one helping Ghana, but I
    realized that when Japan is in trouble, people in Ghana want very much to help.
    This is what I want to tell people in Japan. There are many people in Ghana who want to
    donate money to Japan, even though they cannot afford lunch for themselves. While we were
    collecting money for Japan, the lady who cleans our school happened to pass by. She carefully
    took out one cedi about US $0.65 wrapped inside her handkerchief
    and placed it in the
    donation box. The people of Ghana are truly kind.
    The desire to help people in need is shared by every human being. As long as people have this
    desire, the world will surely become a peaceful one, without war. This is what I came to
    feel through this experience

  26. I experienced a change in perspective when I watched a television program called “The Story
    of Studio Ghibli.” The discussion of Minamata disease during the program completely turned
    my ideas around

  27. I had learned about Minamata disease in fifth grade soc
    ial studies class. When I saw pictures
    of people with Minamata disease, it made me want to look away. It was hard to believe that
    Minamata disease was a reality in Japan, and more so that it happened when our grandparents
    were young.

  28. Hello campus,
    Although I start late, I still believe I can make it to the top, otherwise what was the point of deadlines!
    I’m so grateful and thankful for the opportunity that you gave me and I’m going to use it in the best way.

  29. I have never really thought about the future until Until two months ago an announcement was made at our school about one girl. She was seriously ill. She had cancer. A very aggressive form of it. The doctors in our country did everything they could for her. Still she was dying. Her only hope was the treatment that she could get in Germany. She needed minimum of 50 thousand Euros to be able to go and soon. The price of the human life. It’s a lot of money here. So her parents started raising funds wherever they could and eventually came to our school. Nowadays we have almost got used to such stories because after the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Station accident the rate of cancer among children in Belarus has increased 13 times. This power station is situated almost at the boarder of our Republic and right after the accident the wind was blowing north and carrying radioactive clouds in our direction So there are articles in newspapers, announcements on TV, Internet about kids dying of cancer who need urgent help.

  30. But this girl was special. I understood it when I saw her picture. She was bald after chemotherapy, very pale, hollow-eyed and SMILING. She had such a radiant smile! This impressed me greatly. And not only me. I saw that most of my classmates brought money for her the next day. How courageous must she be to be able to smile in that situation! Then for a moment I tried to imagine myself in her place. How scary must it be to know that your life might end in a day, a week, a month But she seemed not to be afraid. Then suddenly I got an insight – I will also die, all people die. The only difference was that she knew it could happen soon. Death became real to her but for me it used to be unreal, like a phantom. I became aware of part of my future, the part that is common for all of us.

  31. Well, being on campus for 3.5 months (Mid May to August) is equivalent to a University semester period; however I am glad to be part of the 2019 youth team; this competition teaches one who they really are in the entrepreneurial world.

  32. Thank you very much .

  33. Opening Up the Idea
    In Germany, in a meeting with a conventional start-up adviser, the would-be founder brings the idea;
    the idea, so to speak, is simply “there.” In the Laboratory, on the other hand, the idea is questioned,
    examined, refined. Like a sculptor, a founder can work the raw material and create an intellectual
    abstraction that reflects not only the concerns of the “artist” more clearly and more precisely, but that
    also develops a better view of the market. It is important to work out something that’s “a better fit,”
    something that dovetails with the personality of the founder, something that “feels” better to him or
    her than the initial idea.

  34. In each case, we try to figure out what will truly engage the participant over the long term: what reflects
    his inclinations and desires, even those desires of which he might not be fully conscious. The method is
    akin to Frithjof Bergmann’s concept of New Work, where the question posed is: “What do we really,
    really want?” Thus the goal is not simply to accept the idea and then address possible steps to
    implement it, but rather to treat the initial idea as the raw material whose potential still needs to be
    explored.

  35. Am glad to be part of youth entrepreneurship competition 2019, i have gain new experience and expanding my knowledge

  36. I’m so happy and proud to be part of the youth entrepreneurship competition 2019. I´m constantly looking for new ideas and innovative projects with creative people, so I came up with an idea of creating the first platform for providing integrated fishing trips with the aim of raising fishermen’s standard of living, combating overfishing and developing fishing tourism in Greece.
    I wish best of luck for all the contestants!

  37. I’m so glad that i got that opportunity. I came to know about this campus lately. But i remain successful in exploring my friendship with number of campus members. I’m spending sucha great time that i can’t describe here. Its a great platform to bring some new innoation and appreciate those persons who are really enthusiastic to bring a new change

  38. In spite of what appeared to be appropriate planning, which considered a variety of aspects, there’s still
    a high degree of risk in this type of start-up. A lot of capital is required, and much advance preparation is
    needed, all of which will require financing. In addition, there are high operating costs like rent, interest
    and personnel. Unless there are a lot of customers immediately, as well as over the long term, there’s a
    danger that this start-up will end up the same way that many other restaurants have ended up in the
    past. As far as the likelihood of survival goes, it’s like placing bets in a casino – in both cases, the chances
    of success are statistically low. I put all my money on Red 19 and fervently hope it wins. If my restaurant
    doesn’t work out, then I’ll lose all of my own money, my borrowed capital, and all my work will have
    been in vain. I call this launching a business à la Roulette. Not recommended.

    2.If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other. Mother Teresa

    3. Spread love everywhere you go. Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier Mother Teresa

  40. Mother Teresa, known in the Catholic Church as Saint Teresa of Calcutta, is one of the most recognized humanitarian figures in recent memory. From an early age, Mother Teresa dedicated her life to charity and helping those in need all around the world. Even though much of her drive comes from her loyalty to her faith, her story and wisdom continues to inspire millions to this day even after her death in 1997.
    Here are some of her most inspirational quotes:

  42. I’m very happy that this year there is a competition dedicated respectively to sustainable tourism. Sustainable tourism is important to our world because travel shouldn’t be harmful. We should travel in a way that can benefit the people and communities we’re in, and that mitigates negative impacts of travel on the environment. Sustainable travel is about showing we care – and some of us care.

  43. Fritz Fleischmann says that The nature of being an entrepreneur means that you fully embrace ambiguity and are comfortable with being challenged regularly. Especially when having to go out for startup fundraising. Choosing this career path is completely irrational because the odds of succeeding are dismal, but most succeed because of their unwavering belief, laser focus on delivering and persistence. This is something that we see constantly at CoFoundersLab company I lead, which is one of the largest networks for entrepreneurs.

    Starting a company is a riveting roller coaster of emotions with tremendous highs and at times, difficult lows, but one thing that always helps me through the ups and downs is to connect with some of the greatest minds. Below are just a few of my favorite quotes

    1. The best way to predict the future is to create it.

    Peter Drucker

    2. Winners never quit and quitters never win.

    Vince Lombardi

  44. I would want to take this opportunity to thank the campus management through online training you guys really helped us in improving our idea. it also served as a guidance to many of us. Although some of our idea are not in the category were we suppose to be I hope you will be able to help us through this. Together we will make the world a better place for everyone lets vote each other until the end

  45. I have gained a lot from this campus. Just bring here is rewarding enough. The skill that I have really mastered is marketing. On this campus, we are reminded to market our items daily in form of votes. I hope weske it to the finish line.

  46. The first thing that this campus teaches you is selflessness. You come in and vote for yourself. Tomorrow you realise that wasn’t enough, you begin to vote for a few others. Before you know it, you want to vote for the entire campus in 15 minutes!!!

  47. Function, not Convention
    Many of our examples demonstrate the entrepreneurs’ independent spirit above all. They are either
    free from, or are able to shake off convention. Conversely, this means there is promise of success if I
    regard everything I find in place as convention, at least until the opposite has been proven. I examine
    the processes without being intimidated and ask myself whether those things that were still thought to
    be reasonable in the past can now be organized more simply using modern methods. I don’t settle for
    making a service or product a little cheaper, better, more efficient, smarter or more environmentally
    friendly, but instead I challenge the entire process, that is, I start to fundamentally rethink how it would
    be possible to organize the functions under current conditions.

  48. 5 Habits for Success:

    1) Read everyday
    2) Focus on high-level tasks
    3) Make your health a priority
    4) Learn from people you admire
    5) Plan your day the night before

  53. Entrepreneurship can be a tough path–and a long, grueling one. Littered with false starts and failures, it tends to trigger a rollercoaster of emotions: excitement, despair, determination, and confusion, to name a few.

    Because it’s so rarely linear (just try to find a successful entrepreneur who hasn’t fallen flat on his or her face at some point), the thing is requires more than anything is stamina: You’ve got to be able to keep going even when you don’t feel like it, and draw on deep reserves of energy to go to the distance.

    Need a little help filling that well? Here’s some inspiration from those who’ve come before, to help you get to where you want to be:

    1. “Don’t be intimidated by what you don’t know. That can be your greatest strength and ensure that you do things differently from everyone else.” – Sara Blakely

    2. “A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new.” – Albert Einstein

    4. “Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice.” – Steve Jobs

    5. “Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.” – Mark Twain

    6. “Age is something that doesn’t matter, unless you are a cheese.” – Billie Burke

    7. “Find the smartest people you can and surround yourself with them.” – Marissa Meyer

    8. “One of the most important things I have learned is that businesses don’t fail, entrepreneurs give up. Now sometimes, giving up is the right decision. But usually you just need to dig in and figure out how to make things better. Remember: Every day is a new opportunity to get up and do it better than yesterday!” – Adda Birnir

    9. “Be patient with yourself. Self-growth is tender, it’s holy ground. There’s no greater investment.” – Stephen Covey

    10. “The secret of getting ahead is getting started.” – Sally Berger

    11. “Achievement seems to be connected with action. Successful men and women keep moving. They make mistakes but they don’t quit.” – Conrad Hilton (founder of Hilton Hotels)

    12. “There is only one way to avoid criticism: Do nothing, say nothing, and be nothing.” – Aristotle

    13. “Take criticism seriously, but not personally.” – Hillary Clinton

    14. “My best advice to entrepreneurs is this: Forget about making mistakes, just do it.” – Ajaero Tony Martins

  55. CEO: Tesla and Spacex

    Bold move: All of them

    There’s no denying that Elon Musk is a visionary. But there’s also no denying that he’s got room for improvement. Tesla is a well-publicized mess — behind on production, abandoned by its executives and embroiled in an SEC investigation. Musk, too, often appears to be a mess — increasingly erratic on Twitter, lurching from one PR crisis to the next. But in 2018, his company SpaceX launched and landed a giant rocket (and then booked the first passenger for a trip around the moon), his hyperloop technology scored a contract with the city of Chicago and his battery-making Gigafactory hit new strides. So is he a model to follow? “Beyond Musk’s undoubtable genius and grit, it takes a heavy dose of hubris to devote one’s life to pioneer technologies that promote the Earth’s sustainability, while simultaneously creating an intergalactic escape hatch if we collectively fail to save the planet,” says Leonard Sherman, a professor of business at Columbia University. “In keeping with the breathtaking ambition of his quest, Musk has certainly suffered many personal and technical setbacks along the way. But despite it all, entrepreneurs should remember Steve Jobs’ words. Bold, daring entrepreneurship is messy. It’s complex. But the crazy ones will get shit done.” But other experts think he’s more of a cautionary tale. Peter Cohan, lecturer of strategy at Babson College, urges entrepreneurs to learn from Musk’s mistakes. “The lessons that entrepreneurs should take from Elon Musk are clear: Put the highest priority on what is best for your company’s customers, employees, partners and investors. To do that, you must look at your strengths and weaknesses objectively. If you are not good at a skill that’s critical to deliver what stakeholders expect — now and in the future — you should partner with an executive who is. For all of Musk’s ambition and achievements, he seems unable or unwilling to do this.” Still not sure?

  56. Mother Teresa was an inspiration to countless millions for her lifelong devotion to the neediest and most vulnerable of the world. The selflessness and sacrifice with which she lived her own life made her an international symbol of charitable work, and the love and compassion she showed the destitute of all faiths won her a Nobel Peace Prize in 1979, which she donated entirely to the poor.

  57. Henry Dunant Quotes and Sayings

    “I was a mere tourist with no part whatever in this great conflict; but it was my rare privilege, through an unusual train of circumstances, to witness the moving scenes that I have resolved to describe. In these pages I give only my personal impressions; so my readers should not look here for specific details, nor for information on strategic matters; these things have their place in other writings.”
    — Henry Dunant
