Dear Resiliant Entrepreneur,

It's the end of the competition, I want to urge you to not leave this community without the contact (email especially) of as many other entrepreneurs on this platform. You never can tell what your further conversations may produce.

It's the power of networking and leverage I'm talking about...
Here's my email [email protected] looking forward to hearing from you.


August 31, 2017 23:44

Bye fellow entrepreneur:
As I say good buy, I must say it has been an astounding time reading so many great entries.
I went through the details of your idea and was indeed very impressed. Would you be kind enough to please explain to me as how you got this idea? Equally importantly, who were (are) the people who inspired you for you to come up with this idea.
Take care and all the very best!

August 31, 2017 22:20

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

Cheers from Kabul.

As the YCEC draws closest to close take this from me, Those who win a competition are not always the best but they are the ones that put extra effort and got that little push they desired. On the other hand those that doesn't win are not always the worst either most times they always go ahead to become the better ones on the long run. So selected or not never give up on your idea or project, try as much hard to make it a reality. Congratulations in advance. Changing the world begins with you. CHEERS.

August 31, 2017 21:12

All the best for your project.As today is the last day of competition I am glad that I was able to read your mind blowing project.
Best wishes for your success and thank you so much for your support on my project.

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

Dear Fellow participant,

You have done well thus far. Only few people will venture relentlessly into the things in which their instincts proposes because sometimes the goal appears too crazy to achieve, so they just retreat.

Actually, someone has said that "The people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do."

You may have seen this before but I want to remind you that it's true, only those who are "crazy enough" eventually get results.

Congratulations for been "crazy enough" (seeing beyond normal and following your dreams despite the odds)...

Best wishes,

As all of you said, a visual universal language is needed for this continuously developing society. I am trying my best to launch my Gadaa Universe with the help of you and your constructive comments. We will do whatever it takes to exceed your expectations.

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.

Team GreenSpace.

Hi there,

Electric cars are definitely the future of global transportation so your project has a broad future to fit into. Using concepts like BMW i3 goes to show your knowledge about what vehicles are best for your idea. Free wifi and comfort are just what passengers the world over quietly demand. This is impressive, very futuristic. I see this seriously rivalling Ueber. I hope you will. Best of luck!

August 19, 2017 22:33

great idea streamline development objective to be specific, the project brings in a lot of detail that take a little away from the project. As An observation keep the project simple to one specific objective though much of detail is pertinent find a balance that keep project singular.

your project is a very impressive and it will surely be beneficial for all the people..
It looks promising and executable.
Congratulations for all your efforts that you have put into your project.

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 copy the same meaningless message and paste it to all ideas. I just do marketing. Again, I am sorry if this message disturbed you.
Kindest regards,

Good luck!

August 17, 2017 05:04

Hi Sebastian, from your presentation, it seems public transportation methods in Manizales is leaving huge carbon footprints, and your project should definitely shrink the footprint if successful. Will you be looking to work with your government to replace their vehicles with yours? If they can help foot the bill, you can probably ramp up quickly as people realize how comfortable the ride, and superior the quality can be at a reasonable price. Good luck!

August 16, 2017 23:21

Ur idea is quite impressive however it seems so expensive for you by offering high quality services at a low price as well as offering freebies.think of the expenses as well as maintenance of your vehicles.won't you need to register at a certain department or association to render taxi services?.kind regards and best wishes

August 16, 2017 19:42

Sebastian, hello!

Your project is very interesting, but, I have a question. haven't its innovation been conflicting with the Uber Black idea? I got it that have the electrical cars as a diferential, but, the rest of idea will be additional at uber context? Can you explain me?

August 16, 2017 16:16

Hello Sebastian,

Your project is great. What mostly draws my attention is your capacity to deliver a high qualiy service with low price. This means everyone can feel the luxury of taxi at an offordable price.

August 13, 2017 06:44

This is very good project Conguatulation for your innovative project.I think you are real touching life of many people in your.The same project can be used in different Country to minimize air pollution
Best wishes

August 13, 2017 04:33

This is very remarkable project. It will indeed help to reduce road accident and enhance professionalism in the public transportation system.

However, how do you finance your car purchases before you generate returns in your transport charges?

In this same spirit, you may check my idea, AfricEnergy, towards green energy; biogas, electricity and organic fertilizer. See it at;

August 12, 2017 08:31

It is a good project, indeed, but I advise you to make a marketing campaign for this project a little bit less aggressive. I am glad that you are doing all you can for your project, but to see on any single project on this platform a comment without meaning of yours with just "comment here and vote for me", it is not so pleasant. However keep continue with this project!

P.S: In the same spirit I invite you to comment my idea Path To Knowledge. I would really like to hear your opinion.

Hi Sebastian,
I like you idea and is quite interesting. I don't know how efficient is electricity in your area and availability of electric cars, I assume you are not building your own electric car, are you? Borrow some idea from car mobility sharing system done in Switzerland ( and E-bikes in Denmark (
Great project and all the best!
