Your profile

Age: 26. Background: I am from Philippines. I am currently studying in Masters of Business Administration degree at AIT School of Management (Thailand) which produce strong perspective in Operations Management, Marketing, Strategic and Finance. Graduated under the program of BS Food Technology in the University of the Philippines, mold my in-depth knowledge in the field of food science and technology, agriculture studies especially crop and animal science. I have been trained to an extensive range of subjects from chemistry, microbiology, food sensory method, food processing, engineering, and safety. As a R&D specialist, I actively identify and evaluate modern technologies (process, ingredients, and packaging) to solve product quality problems, to improve efficiency, cost savings and remove key barriers. Outside corporate duties, I become part time R&D/ Quality Assurance consultant of a small scale social entrepreneurial business - Food for Thought, Inc. We help mushroom and cassava farmers by creating gourmet chips or snacks from their raw material. Being part of that social food business, give me an insight that there are a lot of small scale food enterprise with potential and distinctive food products/ services that lost the opportunity for market dominance because they lack the support not just in technical process and product development but also sustainable business analysis in marketing, sales and distribution. To create more an impact, last 2016, we join a competition about Mobility organized by IMPACT HUB-Manila a network of collaborators and one of the logistic company in the Philippines, the LBC. In this competition, we propose Food Planner, concept is centered in offering and preparing ready to use (pre-cut, pre-peeled, pre-minced) vegetables for fast food restaurant or food manufacturing. Our aim was to create direct market for farmers by cutting middlemen or other market intermediaries involve in purchasing agricultural crops.

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 future

Comrades,
In this fight for a sustainable future, what we need is innovation; something which is not necessarily new, but which makes us look at things from a different angle.

I believe this is one of the major motives of this community which we are a part of. Taking one step together hand in hand towards our goal is the only way we can achieve it.

So I wish you the very best in this endeavour of yours and hope to see you together in the new tomorrow

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 "premortem" 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.

Hi,
After going through your idea, I firmly believe that you can successfully convert it to an executable project and help the society grow in a sustainable manner. I wish you the best for the same.

I would really appreciate if you could go through my idea as well(follow this link https://www.entrepreneurship-campus.org/ideas/12/5961/comments). Our idea deals with covering an otherwise unused rooftop of a building with green plants, and using that space for a multitude of activities. This would have various positive effects on the environment and also the society in general.

It is a very good idea and solve a very important problem. Keep continue with this project and do not give up even if your steps are small. I wish you all the best,

June 28, 2017 06:16

Thanks for all the comments, most of which concerns the costing and finance area, for that matter.
We already started by focusing on one product - the concentrated juices...where we processed fruits and vegetables and turn them into juice,wherein we introduce in canteens and schools. Some in one flavor, some are in mixed flavors. This is also to address malnutrition and at the same time introduce alternative snack for kids.

The process is very simple and we just use household equipment, not the industrial ones.
Expansion will be done slowly as we grow and gather some investors in the long run.

June 28, 2017 06:04

Hello!

We love the advantages that your idea brings to the agriculture industry. However, we are unsure how would the operating costs of the facility be handled. Would the above mentioned financing source be funding this for the long run, or just a one-time thing.

Thank you and all the best!

June 26, 2017 16:01

This is an amazing idea! Generally, educated young people in my community are not attracted towards agriculture as it is consider it to be a traditional occupation. I think ideas like this could be an example to engage young people in agro-business.

June 13, 2017 17:27

Hi,
It feels good to know that you are using what you studied into helping farmers save their livelihood! I think this is a pressing issue all over the world, most importantly in the developing countires which rely majorly on agriculture as their main source of occupation.

Best wishes from our side and we would love to hear about your success stories in the future :)
