Bye fellow entrepreneur:
As I say good buy, I must say it has been an astounding time reading so many great entries.

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

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,
Seth

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.

Regards,
Team GreenSpace.

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.

Hi Amare,
It's interesting to read about your project on urban poultry production. The details on the project description shows that the project require relatively high investment than a similar one in rural or sen-urban areas. Do you a batch of 250 chickens would be enough to run and make profits? I think the number is on the lower side? What's the situation of the commercial poultry farming like in your country? Have you also considered the environmental issues? Possibly you might wish to check the customer segments you have identified how currently are getting the poultry products, in what quantity and at what intervals? this can as well help to determine your production plan (batch size), ideal space. Best wishes as you continue to contribute towards development of livestock industry.

Dear Ayubu Massau,

Exactly Thank you very much I already consider in the project plan.

As you know using Chicken Manure for Vegetable urban Garden Fertilizer. Chicken manure fertilizer is very high in nitrogen and also contains a good amount of potassium and phosphorus. The high nitrogen and balanced nutrients is the reason that chicken manure compost is the best kind of manure to use.

As I practically observed in my home, from 250 chickens about (45-50) kg Chicken manure collected per month we use it for our Garden as Fertilizer. In addition to that we have small chopper mill to prepare chicken feed. The chopper mill filters wastes from the feed composition, adding this waste with Chicken Manure it good compost. As you know organic fertilizers are highly recommended and demanded.

Thank you,

Amare Adihena
