Explain your idea in details:

Considering the current problems faced in Africa workplace and its negative effect on economic growth, Slick Errand Food service was conceived to improve productivity and increase economic growth. The idea is to provide food for workers right in their office without a service charge. Research was done and it was discovered that in the developing world, a 1 percent kilocalorie (kcal) increase results in a 2.27 percent increase in general labour productivity. This means that food at work, which is often overlooked by many, actually plays a vital role in increasing productivity and economic growth. This is also with the understanding that the workplace, where many adults spend a third of their day, or half their waking hours, is a logical place for growth intervention. The objective is to increase food security, reduce the rate of poverty and increase productivity, hence improve Africa economy. The Approach is to develop a network and create a platform whereby the society will be given a helping hand to each other. We believe that the responsibility of making a nation great do not lie solely with the government, the people also have a vital role to play. All we aim to achieve is to improve the economy of developing countries so that we can make Africa great. Business Activities: Download the App, and place an order.

Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development

Without strong willingness to step out and do what no one dares to do, there wont be any history to celebrate. We are determined to change the economy of Africa, to be part of history; therefore we focused on food supply and security. Why food? There is a popular proverb in my native language Ti onje ba ti kuro ni ise, abuse buse translation- when food is made available in a state of poverty, then the effect of poverty is insignificant and can easily be addressed. Target: Workers. Why workers and not the general population? We choose workers because the labour force is definitely responsible for the growth of a nation or continent. How can we achieve our vision of improving the economy of Africa if the workforce is hungry? Research has proven that the brain consumes more calories; nutrition in the workplace can raise national productivity rates, while workplace meal programs can prevent micronutrient deficiencies and chronic diseases, reduction of sick days, sleeping at work, tiredness, going in search of food during break time, lack of money/savings, carrying heavy bags to work, frustration, fatigue and accidents. We often do ignore the importance of eating at work especially in Africa. Many are ignorant of the fact that good eating habit at work can lead to increase in productivity. Planned milestone: 1. Research & Development 2. Advertising & Marketing 3. Customer Service (Keeping Customers) 4. Product development (Staying Competitive)

Plans for implementation and sustainability

Africans dont have a saving habit. Most often, after the first week of salary, many staffs go penniless and have to borrow money to transport themselves to work. They end up not having money to eat, so they go hungry all day long. The idea is extended to help them have a saving habit has they can plan their feeding on monthly basis. Also, there is a loan service to cater for workers feeding whenever they have no money and the loan can be paid back when they collect their monthly salary. Therefore with or without cash, they will always eat all through the month and stay productive; to positively improve Africa economy. It is discovered that farmers lose more than 30% of the farm produce due to the poor storage system in Africa, also restaurant owners dont have a ready market and lastly, workers dont have a saving habit. So we decided to merge the problems and create a network that will work towards achieving one vision; increasing economic growth.   The planned financing sources are: 1.    Personal funding 2.    Family support 3.    Loan service 4.    Seek financial support from investors (Angel)   Revenue: The revenue will be from the advertisement running on our App, and Interest Charges on Loan given to customers. Collaborators: Me, my brother (A software programmer), and restaurant owners.

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 "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.

Regards,
Team GreenSpace.

Food delivery without service charges! Wow sounds so great to me, I am hungry lol ! This is so nice because sometimes the charges on food delivery alone is enough to make a person wait till they get home to eat. Well done Ayobami on Slick Errand Services. I wish you the very best.

Hello,
I invite you kindly to comment my idea Path To Knowledge. I would be glad to hear your advice. 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. Again, I am sorry if this message disturbed you.
