Explain your project in details:

Furniture and Furnishing are an essential part of the home and buildings at large. People from all works of life, not withstanding their class in the society require furniture within their spaces. However, we find that there is an imbalance between classic urban furniture and the cost as they are usually expensive. This sometimes makes good furniture and furnishing inaccessible to modest income earners. In the Housing sector also, despite efforts by the Government and every other sector to meet the Housing needs of the teeming modest income earners, this is still unresolved and most of our housing solutions are not sustainable. We have found a way to utilize a profitable process in creating indigenous container houses, furniture using new and recycled materials ranging from, Shipping containers, Old furniture, Tyres, Metals, Plastics, Fabrics, Glass, Wood, E.t.c. This products will be sold in retail and wholesale which would be available and affordable to all levels of income earners. Subsequently, we will embark on the sustainable and affordable Housing solutions. Most importantly, all our products will be SAFE

Sustainability and future plans

There is already an existing furniture market for custom made and ready-made products in the industry in Nigeria and around the world. However, we find that the low income earners in the society make up a greater percentage of the population hence, we are carving a niche for ourselves in ensuring we provide quality furniture for these class of people primarily, as well as for Clients seeking exotic pieces.

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

August 31, 2017 20:47

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

Remember it's not over until it's over.
It may be just a few days to the end of the competition but it's not the end of your dreams
There's still a lot you can achieve.
Stay focused.


August 30, 2017 11:44

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,

August 30, 2017 03:05

Hi marvis,

I'm quite fascinated with your products and how you are utilising "waste" material to produce such a wide range of wonderful products. Thumps up.

However, I would like to learn from you about the challenge you meet between 1990 to the 2017 when your business was re-estbalished. What happen or what changed so that in 2017 you thought of re-establish your business.

Wishing you all success.


August 28, 2017 20:02

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.

August 19, 2017 11:03

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,

August 10, 2017 00:34

Hey Marvis, this idea has great benefits especially for the environment. I was expecting to see more information on your 'description', your future plans and the sustainability of this idea (eg, how and where you get your materials from, processes involved, benefits and its potential to match up with current furniture market trends and so on). Your write-up seems to be a bit brief for the great potentials behind this project. You could be more convincing if you really want to sell this idea. Cheers.
