Explain your idea in details:

Our business, MyPolitics will serve as a social media platform/mobile application that is dedicated solely to the political issues of the 21st century and will offer features such as education on these issues, current events relating to the issues, and debate groups allowing for the people to voice their opinions on the various subjects identified by the application. MyPolitics offers an environment for political discussion that accommodates the digital theme of the modern era, while assuring productivity, organization, and education.The issues that will be integrated into the application will be geographically and culturally specific. Vast research will be conducted beforehand to ensure that important regions are accounted for (e.g. Middle East, North America, South-East Asia, etc.)An example of how this would work is the United States section of the application, a significant global reference, would include issues such as the following: Global Warming, Population Growth, Environmental Preservation, Poverty, Religious Extremism, Terrorism, Immigration (Muslim immigration, Illegal Immigration, deportation/Criminal Immigrants, Trump's proposed border along Mexico, Sanctuary Cities, Border Security, Citizenship opportunity), Electoral College, Syrian refugees, Israel, Enhanced Interrogation/torture, ISIS, Foreign Aid, North Korea, NSA, Abortion, Planned Parenthood, Gender Identity, Death Penalty, Medicaid, Gender Inequality, Minimum Wage, TPP, Nafta, Gun Control, Common Core, Climate Change, Oil Pipelines.The application within each issue/section will present the following: current news stories relating to the topic, a timeline of significant events related to the topic (Time of proposition, creation, or rise of the issue - present), and our most prized aspect of each issue, the "debate group" These "debate groups" will essentially be chat-rooms where any user can present their opinions and possible resolutions to an issue and broadcast this to users from around the world. You can receive responses almost instantaneously from global citizens with similar/differing perspectives.

Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development

Within the 21st century we have seen a figurative war when it comes to political disagreements on social media that simply transform into unorganized, unproductive, and often caustic arguments that don't benefit the knowledge of the people. This application will allow the general public to engage themselves in intellectual and political debates in a social media outlet created specifically for that purpose. Society will benefit because they may now project their political opinions in a controlled environment where there is an emphasis on expressing yourself only as a constituent and not having to worry about protecting personal image because of political beliefs. The intent is that the application will encourage political discussions rather than bitter arguments that simple create enemies and divide the population. Along with this, the app allows for society to educate themselves on the nature, history, progression, and current state of the issue along with discussing, which allows the people to fully immerse themselves into details before formulating a concrete opinion on an issue. MyPolitics wishes to address Sustainable Development Goal 4, ensuring inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all. The company hopes to do this by informing global constituents about the innumerable political and social issues of the world and allowing them to formulate their own legitimate opinions on these issues. Along with this, MyPolitics is giving large populations around the world, who are perhaps underrepresented/uninformed by their governments the opportunity to discuss the issues of the world in a secure, organized, and productive environment. By doing this, my company also wishes to address Sustainable Development Goal 16: promoting peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, providing access to justice for all and building effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels.

Plans for implementation and sustainability

My Politics will operate as a corporation, a legal entity that is independent from the owners. To establish MyPolitics, we are predicting need for $500,000 in financing. The owners will personally contribute $40,000 of funding. The financing will allocated towards: Salaries of employees/developers, Insurance/Finances/Taxes, Marketing/advertising of the application, Development of the application, Third-party API integrations, Billing integrations (if necessary), Database encryption, Advanced admin panel with powerful analytics and numerous functions, Custom interaction mechanics between users (aspect of social networks), Other general startup costs. During the first year, our projected income would be approximately $50,000 which would come through advertising partnerships with news outlets (FOX, MSNBC, CNN) on the application. Regarding expenses during the first year, fixed costs will include advertising for the opening, the basic website, brand development, business entities, business licenses/permits, computer hardware and software, legal and professional fees, and setup, installation, and consulting fees. These fixed costs will total approximately $86,000 at the end of the first year. Average monthly costs include advertising, business insurance, employee salaries and commissions, owner salary, payroll or self-employment tax, These monthly costs at the end of the first year will total approximately $500,000. MyPolitics will require the assistance of numerous employees, including programmers, software and application developers, financial advisers, corporate management, etc. Regarding collaboration, MyPolitics will, as mentioned before, be forming partnerships with news outlets by offering to supply their news/current events/relating to the issues presented in MyPolitics as well as general advertisement of their networks. Furthermore, MyPolitics will be collaborating with politically vocal celebrities, which involves equipping them with their own MyPolitics account and promoting the diversity of their opinions on political issues.

Your profile

My name is Aditya Pillai and I am a 15 year old 10th grader at Moorestown High School, New Jersey, United States. The concept of business and entrepreneurship has always interested me. Regarding my strengths and abilities, I am confident in my leadership and communication skills. In my school, I am a member of the International Affairs Club (Model United Nations), which tests ones ability to formulate solutions and communicate with others. Awards and recognition that I have received relating to business include placing first in the nation in the PNC CPI 12 Days of Christmas Challenge, which is essentially a challenge posed to predict changes in the Consumer Price Index using the items in the 12 Days of Christmas song. Through detailed analytical observations of the CPI from periods as far back as the 90s, I was successfully able to formulate a rationale that involved comparing inflation rates from the past with current inflation trends and applying the percent changes of the CPI to the modern day. This rationale was recognized on a national level by the Sifma Foundation, who had organized the competition. Along with this, my business idea that I will enter in this competition was acknowledged and given an award by Rowan University, who had organized a Startup Stars competition. This business idea has also progressed in the STEAM Tank Challenge, a business idea competition created and sponsored by the NJSBA and the U.S. Army. I have experience in programming and coding which will be beneficial toward the development of the application. Along with this, I have received a formal education in business, global business, and entrepreneurship, which are fundamental in creating a successful, wide-reaching company such as ours.

Hello fellow passenger,You might have heard the famous song "What I've done" by Linkin park. The lyrics have been beautifully carved by the late singer Chester Bennington. The song covers the ways in which our so called development has helped only a handful of the upper society members, whereas people are still living in poverty.We have a great platform here which is urging super brains from around the world to come together and collaborate with their ideas and help make this world a better place to live in. You have been a part of this community and I congratulate you on your effort that you have put in.Thanks once again and all the best for the futureRegards, Team GreenSpace

August 28, 2017 08:50

Hello,Being a part of India's well known Entrepreneurship Cell of the most prestigious engineering college in India, I have interacted with many startup enthusiasts, have got to know how they think and what are some qualities that set them apart from the ones who are not able to see their idea through. Reading through your idea, I have realised that your idea has that spark which can help it become a successful venture. Coupled with its aim to help the society achieve its goals sustainably, your idea can be something quite helpful for the same.But before it's implementation, you need to do a "pre-mortem" check on how it can fail. This would prepare you for any uncalled-for circumstances and help you prepare for them accordingly.Lastly, I would like you to have a look at our idea, GreenSpace, and share your views about the same.Wishing you the best,Team GreenSpace.

I have written this message after I commented almost all ideas and projects and probably yours too. I am deeply sorry if this message bothered you, but everyone on this platform wants to go to the finals with his/her idea and makes all it is possible to get there. Maybe not all the actions are fair. Some participants copies the same meaningless message and paste it to all ideas. I just do marketing.
