Reusable N95 Mask Business Plan

Published on August 1, 2020 um 11:01

Explain your idea in details:

The reusable N95 mask I design have revolutionized the traditional design of masks. It is composed of breathing valve and three-layer filtration systemwater-blocking layer made of fluorine-free hydrophobic material, nanoporous fiber membrane filtration layer and pure cotton skin-friendly moisture-absorption layer. This structure determines the stability of this mask: it can be repeatedly cleaned and used, disinfected by 84 disinfectant and other chemical reagents, and it can withstand high temperature without lowering its protective performance. I also design an additional layer: heating device of carbon nanofiber cloth, which can be heated and sterilized at a temperature of about 70 degree as long as the USB port on the mask is connected. When people do not have a set of cleaned masks, or need to use masks continuously, heating disinfection is a simple and efficient method. The mask is also printed with a two-dimensional code, which can be bound with the health code issued by the government. People can scan the QR code to grasp the information of masks and enter their own health information. During the epidemic, we can cooperate with the government to realize monitoring by scanning the QR code, which is convenient for the government to calculate data and adopt special prevention and control measures. This mask can meet the protection needs of most people in daily life and work. It will extend the use cycle of masks, alleviating the current global crisis of masks. I hope that while providing people with low price and high quality products, we can also embody our concept of environmental protection.

Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development

The industry of manufacturing our masks is to achieve two sustainable development goals: Goal 3: Good-health and Well-being, Goal 9: Industry, Innovation, and Infrastructureand Goal 12: Responsible Production and Consumption. This project aligns with SDG 3. With the protection level of N95, our masks can effectively reduce the infection rate of coronavirus and other infectious diseases. Besides, the mask is printed with a unique QR code, which can be bound with the health code issued by the government. We have also set up a database, and will cooperate with WeChat, Alipay and other large enterprises to help the government and medical departments track the patients and monitor flow of people through big data retrieval. We will record the existing wearers information and the information that needs to be added for future use. Therefore, we can use our health information to help the government track patients and monitor the flow of them. Such a mask is innovative and has the potential to be manufactured at large scale. The filter membrane we use is a new type of material, and the purchase cost will be slightly higher than the traditional one, so when we set the overall pricing policy, we need to take into consideration of the market price of raw materials. We will set a reasonable price, which will be able to cope with the normal fluctuation of raw materials price in the market. Besides, since this mask can be repeatedly used and has a long use cycle, it is more energy-saving and reduce more waste compared to the traditional ones. We will always take the promotion of better masks as our faith, take going to the world as our goal, and lead the innovation of mask market.

Plans for implementation and sustainability

We can't be completely independent at the beginning, so we need investment from the outside world. We will invest 20% in technology to introduce and apply more advanced technology. When we cooperate with the manufacturer, we will give the manufacturer a certain share to replace the capital. We will invite equity investors to invest in the company to inject more vitality into the company's development. In terms of production, we will put all the masks produced in the first stage in promotion channel, cooperating with video platforms like Tik-Tok and YouTube, and other platforms, such as Wechat, Alibaba, or Little Red Book in the way that we pay them to publicize our product in the form of article and video. With the advantages of our QR code, we will cooperate with the government, providing the government with mask technology at a profit rate of 8%. We will authorize state-owned enterprises to produce masks, and the government can issue masks to relevant public officials. In this way, we can establish the official image of our brand, let more people know our products and build a good reputation through cooperation with the government. After establishing a certain brand foundation, we will establish a long-term cooperation with the local manufacturers and afterwards manufacturers around the world to realize the internationalization of the brand. I applied for an patent in March, the result of which will be reported within half a year. After I have the patent right, I will authorize the manufacturer, and the company will continue to expand the research and development of products.

Your profile

I am Qingyang Li, a 19 year old boy from China. I've always been concerned about social issues. In December 2018, I formed an organization called the Ways standing for we are young", a public welfare organization. We cooperated with the Dianchi Christian Church in Kunming, distributing food to the nearby homeless people. In February 2019, I set up a "WeChat" official account to publicize the knowledge of AIDS. When the epidemic broke out, I saw that the number of patients was rising every day. The whole country was in panic, and worse still, the spread of the epidemic has accelerated the consumption of masks, and there has been a large shortage of the supply of masks. The whole world is in desperate need of masks, but N95 masks in many countries are in short supply. Even when we finally managed to get one, the hard-earned mask could only be discarded in four hours. Therefore, I decide to invent a reusable mask. I have studied the traditional N95 respirator and found that the reasons for the short service life of the respirator are as follows: 1. The material used has limitation; 2. The probability of the respirator contacting the virus and the requirements for hygiene are relatively high. From these two points, I began to look for proper materials and study how to make the mask reusable. Finally, after comparing a series of materials, I chose the current raw material, printed a unique two-dimensional code on the mask, and applied the carbon fiber cloth heating technology to achieve the purpose of disinfection. After a series of experiments, I finally made a reusable mask that can reach N95 protection level. I applied for an patent in March, the result of which will be reported within half a year.

Amazing [email protected] n95 Mask business plan.
To add to my earlier comment on your idea, I am sharing with you how to create a winning business model.

What Is a Business Model, Really

Everyone agrees that executives must know how business models work if their organizations are to thrive, yet there continues to be little agreement on an operating definition. Management writer Joan Magretta defined a business model as the story that explains how an enterprise works, harking back to Peter Drucker, who described it as the answer to the questions: Who is your customer, what does the customer value, and how do you deliver value at an appropriate cost.

Other experts define a business model by specifying the main characteristics of a good one. For example, Harvard Business School Clay Christensen suggests that a business model should consist of four elements: a customer value proposition, a profit formula, key resources, and key processes. Such descriptions undoubtedly help executives evaluate business models, but they impose preconceptions about what they should look like and may constrain the development of radically different ones.

Studies suggest that one component of a business model must be the choices that executives make about how the organization should operate-choices such as compensation practices, procurement contracts, location of facilities, extent of vertical integration, sales and marketing initiatives, and so on. Managerial choices, of course, have consequences. For instance, pricing affects sales volume, which, in turn, shapes the company scale economies and bargaining power both consequences. These consequences influence the company logic of value creation and value capture, so they too must have a place in the definition. In its simplest conceptualization, therefore, a business model consists of a set of managerial choices and the consequences of those choices.

Companies make three types of choices when creating business models. Policy choices determine the actions an organization takes across all its operations such as using nonunion workers, locating plants in rural areas, or encouraging employees to fly coach class. Asset choices pertain to the tangible resources a company deploys -manufacturing facilities or satellite communication systems, for instance. And governance choices refer to how a company arranges decision-making rights over the other two should we own or lease machinery. Seemingly innocuous differences in the governance of policies and assets influence their effectiveness a great deal.

Three Characteristics of a Good Business Model

How can one tell if a business model will be effective. A good one will meet three criteria.

1. Is it aligned with company goals
The choices made while designing a business model should deliver consequences that enable an organization to achieve its goals.

2. Is it self-reinforcing
The choices that executives make while creating a business model should complement one another; there must be internal consistency.

3. Is it robust
A good business model should be able to sustain its effectiveness over time by fending off four threats, identified by Pankaj Ghemawat. They are imitation such as can competitors replicate your business model; holdup -can customers, suppliers, or other players capture the value you create by flexing their bargaining power; slack -organizational complacency; and substitution- can new products decrease the value customers perceive in your products or services. Although the period of effectiveness may be shorter nowadays than it once was, robustness is still a critical parameter for effective business model.

Dear campus members, describing our business models is one of the requirements in the Youth Citizen Entrepreneurship competition; Therefore, I honestly suggest that before you submit your idea or project, create time to read this article. If you have already submitted your idea or project, do remember that we still have opportunity to refine our ideas and resubmit.

I hope that you find this useful.

Also, please do create time and take the campus online trainings as the trainings are there to help campus members understand what it is to be an entrepreneur.
Finally, I have voted and commented on your idea; please consider supporting my idea with your votes and comments @https://www.entrepreneurship-campus.org/ideas/26/17094/

@Reusable N95 mask business plan. Once again, your idea is great. To add to my earlier comment on your idea, I suggest you consider the article below:

While reading articles in the platform, I discovered so many of us are yet to explore the platform as expected. So, as I read a recent post, I found out that it is quite informative and timely; not only for the competition but in our life endeavors as entrepreneurs so I decided to share it with you my friends. Happy Reading and application.

How to Promote Your Entry and Get More Votes

Almost a month has passed from the launch of the voting process for the 2020 Citizen Entrepreneurship Competition. Many of us already know that it takes some effort to get people support all the time. The voting process will help us understand why marketing is an integral component of the entrepreneurial design. Your idea or project might be great and highly beneficial to many people, but you need to get them to notice your service or product.
Getting started as a young entrepreneur is an exciting and challenging endeavor. Even if young people lack experience and knowledge, they have readiness and motivation to push through obstacles. On the other hand, it can be such an exciting opportunity for adults who did not have the opportunity to get involved with entrepreneurship in their younger years.

You have got to be crazy if you want to be an entrepreneur: you will have to work 12 to 14 hours a day, there will be no vacations in the near future, and you will have little or no private life anymore. Guenter Faltin says on his book Brains versus Capital.
When talking about successful startups and good entrepreneurial ideas, innovation can be applied both in emerging and existing industries. In other words, everywhere where there is an opportunity for growth and development.
At the initial stage, the young entrepreneur starts to feel like a Jack of all trades by switching into different roles from bookkeeping to marketing. You will notice how useful this experience is going to be when you make the first sales of your product or service.

Back to the competition. When you start promoting your idea or project for votes make sure to:
Explain how it is or will benefit your community or a specific category
Highlight what frustrating problems you are trying to solve and how you are doing it
Use emotions to make the audience notice, share, and vote for you
No matter what medium you are using, create a human voice for your product and service
Talk about the importance of sustainable entrepreneurship and how it could make the world a better place
Even though not everyone has equal access to an internet connection, there are traditional mediums that are still on trend. Print, daily papers, magazines, radio shows, podcasts, television, direct mail, telephone, and SMS are a good option if they have an audience and are cost effective.
Word of mouth marketing. It works for big brands, it will work for you too.

When promoting an idea or project, or everything, people reach out to relatives, friends, people at the school or university, local clubs, organizations. Social media will help you get more audience. Start by identifying the most popular social media sites in your region.
According to the Global Digital Report 2020 the number of
Internet users worldwide in 2020 is 4.5 billion
Social media users in 2020 are 3.8 billion
Mobile phone users in 2020 are 5.19 billion

The same survey confirms that the most popular social media around the world based on the number of users are: Facebook, YouTube, WhatsApp, Messenger, WeChat, Instagram, Tik Tok, QZone, Sina Weibo, Reddit, Snapchat, Twitter, Pinterest and Kuaishou.
Next step. Identify what is the best type of content for each of these channels. Most people use social media for fun and relaxing. They chat with friends, look for photos, videos, and interesting content.
You can create a voice with videos and images
Cross-post across channels,
Use your hashtags
Appeal to influencers by quoting them on your promotions
Organize contests and giveaways
Share content from your friends
Ask for input
Share helpful information
Do not over post
Schedule social media posts in advance

Reminder
You need to publish your idea or project to make it eligible for the public vote. You can find it published at: Youth Competition 2020, Vote for best ideas 2020, Vote for best projects 2020; Adult Competition 2020 Vote for best ideas 2020, Vote for best projects 2020
Please I am encouraging you friends to create time and take the trainings and also read the articles. It is not all about the competition but the knowledge shared and acquired from this campus is awesome. Please do not miss out.
Finally, consider enrolling in the campus online training. This will help you improve on your entrepreneurial skills and derive the necessary motivation to keep forging ahead in the entrepreneurial journey even in the face of difficulties

Also, I have discovered that some of us do not understand that we have 15 minutes from July 6th to vote for our ideas or projects and vote for others as well if necessary. But at least we can vote for ourselves every day because in the campus competition, number of votes and comments gotten is one of the requirements for being a finalist and actually winning apart from the quality of a member concept. Please try to be an active participant while in the campus.

I hope this helps as we are currently voting and commenting

Please I have commented on your project and will vote if I have not done that; should you come online soon, do consider supporting my idea Eduheal with your vote and comment @https://www.entrepreneurship-campus.org/ideas/26/17805/

Thank you for supporting my idea with your votes and comments

The Idea of Building with Bottles

What comes to mind when you see a bottle? You will find the design of the bottle attractive or not; perhaps the color appeals to you, or perhaps you consider whether it might work as a decorative element. I have often thought about these designs and asked myself why no one has developed a much more obvious form, that is, a form that would permit bottles to be used as building blocks. One might consider glass, but also PET or earthenware as materials. Glass blocks would be particularly suitable for Central Europe since our region is short on light and warmth. Clear glass bottles offer both. Put together to form walls, they would create rooms with lots of light, and double or triple glass windows would insulate well. Instead of melting the glass to recycle it, you would give the bottles a second economic life, and an extraordinary one at that. The whole thing would be free an ideal building material. Squared into blocks, with the neck of one bottle inserted into the base of the next bottle, the glass bottles would fit together securely. I am not thinking of those unimaginative glass brick walls from the 1960s, but of very clear, high quality bottles that would make it possible to construct an aesthetically pleasant building. To prevent overheating the rooms, you could cover the walls with plants on the outside. People planning to build themselves a house would drink out of rationally designed bottles for as long as it took to collect the building material. That material would not be financed by a bank but would come from your own storage space, or if you yourself were not planning to build, some publicly accessible space
Where people could put their bottles so that other people who wanted to build could get them as free building material. I see whole villages arising before my eyes, created out of imaginatively shaped igloos or houses with vertical glass walls and wooden roof beams, all taking advantage of light and warmth.

Day 29 of Commenting Phase and sharing with my Co contestants to use it and refine their projects and ideas

The first intelligent step in the direction of entrepreneurship is not to identify where we could earn money, but rather to discover what ideas and visions of our own we can generate. Entrepreneurship has the potential to be much more than self employment a passion, a journey of self discovery, evens a calling; a challenge to commit yourself to your own dreams, to achieve self realization in your work and to accomplish something great. Achieving economic success will follow, because what we do out of inner conviction and with all our strength will be work of the highest quality we are capable of. Recent neurobiological research even suggests that what we do with passion enhances the quality of certain brain functions. To begin with, there has to be an idea. What is missing where? What do I want to improve? What am I shooting for?

Above all, you want to create something you are proud of. That has always been my philosophy of business. I can honestly say that I have never gone into any business purely to make money. If that is the sole motive, then I believe you are better off doing nothing, commented Virgin founder Richard Branson. A business has to be involving; it has to be fun, and it has to exercise your creative instincts.

Day 31 of Commenting Phase and sharing with my Co contestants to use it and refine their projects and ideas

Muhammad Yunus is a good example. His Grameen Bank with its microcredit revolutionized the understanding and practice of granting loans. Prior to Yunus, the poor were not deemed creditworthy but, perhaps even more importantly, they were not profitable customers for the banks even if they did repay their loans, because in the conventional banking system very small loans created a disproportionately high administrative burden. And of course no one believed that the poor possessed the skills needed by entrepreneurs. Yunus created a totally new approach, proving that the poor are a good credit risk and that it is possible to create a system that is mostly self financing that charges and collects interest and is applicable internationally. Anyone familiar with the Yunus story knows that he began with a loan of about

27 dollars, a ridiculously small sum by our standards, to help 42 women achieve micro entrepreneurship i.e. a little bit more than 50 cents per project, and that without exception all the borrowers repaid their loans.

Day 32 of Commenting Phase and sharing with my Co contestants to use it and refine their projects and ideas

Must you be Born an Entrepreneur?
Do you have to be born an entrepreneur? It is a widespread view that an entrepreneur must possess a whole array of personality traits if he wants to be successful. Assertiveness, self sufficiency (high internal locus of control, business skills and expertise, tenacity, rhetorical ability, and more. This all sounds very reasonable. Nonetheless, it is not true. There have been numerous empirical studies, particularly in the USA, which ask what personality traits make a successful entrepreneur. It turned out in these studies that there is no empirical evidence for these apparently reasonable character traits. Surprisingly, the traits approach shows no specific traits for successful startup entrepreneurs. In spite of intensive research it has not yet been possible to identify either a single personality trait or a composite of character traits by which you could predict either start up activities or their success. There are no predetermined character traits for startup entrepreneurs that would permit a prediction of their business success. The notion that qualities like assertiveness and leadership skills evolve over time is not unreasonable, but it would be wrong to regard these traits as the basis for success and assume that they are indispensible from the start. It follows that many more individuals are qualified to become business founders than is generally thought, and we can cast the net much wider when it comes to thinking about a broader, more open entrepreneurial culture. Entrepreneurship is not a specialized field accessible to only the few and with entrée only through a set of special skills. No exceptional traits are required up front for you to succeed as a founder.

Gradually little entrepreneurial concepts started peeling out of the group. A number of the students rode motor scooters and had financial problems when their scooters were in the repair shop. Could not you fix them yourself? Not really, but there were friends and acquaintances who could help you. The idea of a scooter repair shop was taking form. A number of the students had already purchased replacement parts and tried to put them in themselves. Now they could buy these parts together, maybe at a wholesaler, and save money. Another member of the group chimed in, Every time I want to drink a cola it is awfully expensive. But we could drink our own colas at the repair friends stop by, we could sell those cola much cheaper than at the stand. A scooter repair shop with beverage service

Attempts to determine through tests who are suited to be a business founder have also been fruitless. The evidence suggests that the skills we ascribe to founders arise only through the process, that is, in the course of running the business. I can confirm this from my own observations. More than once I have seen that people without apparent promise have turned out to be exceptional at starting up their own companies. Convinced that they have a well thought out and dynamic concept, they put it into practice with great will and tenacity.

Take, for example, my student Kurt. He was obsessed with the idea that he could make rock concerts cheaper so that young people without much money could attend them. His idea was to have performances by groups that did not yet have big names, but which he believed were promising new directions in rock

Halo Co Contestants today is Acht August zweithousend und zwanzig
This week I want you to read through this comment and make your best of it to examine and refine your ideas and projects but consider these vital questions first
Are you sure you are a creative destroyer?
Are you sure your focus point is the concept of your idea?
Are you unconventional as well as your idea or project?
Did you know about the three triple bottom line?
Are you sure you are ready to turn tour enterprise into fun and work?

With Brains versus Capital book you will whimsically find these answers

Day 28 of Voting and Commenting Phase is here for All Contestants to Read and Refine their Ideas and Projects for Implementation

We need to show how the new perspectives opened up by entrepreneurship enable broad and active participation in the economy. Not just on some abstract, theoretical level, but with practical examples that the rest of us can emulate. It would be a shame if we were to leave these opportunities to the still elatively small number of business founders and their investors who occupy the playing field today. Even in the field of fashion, I can imagine devising our own brands, custom tailored to ourselves. In part, this is because I would like to be a brand of my own, instead of being forced to purchase my image, respectability or attractiveness by means of expensive watches and exclusive brand name trousers and shirts. The other reason is that I had the good fortune to meet Professor Kambartel, at one time a professor of philosophy at the University of Constance.Kambartel always wore the same light colored trousers and a practical shirt equipped with many pockets. He explained that he did not want to spend his limited time on earth on something as silly as poking around in the mens department of a department store. If he found something he liked, then on his next visit it would not be there anymore. So he had decided to buy multiples of an item all at once, instead of starting over again every time he had a need for clothes.

One day in December I ran into a man making his way down the street dressed as a Christmas tree with lights. Baffled, I stopped and looked. Children were pointing at him, shoppers carrying Christmas gifts turned to look at him. I followed along a few steps behind him, then congratulated him on his costume and asked about his motive. Grinning, he told me, I sell candles since I got this costume, I really standout. I invited him to the university so that I could get my students to come up with their own ideas instead of putting their trust in marketing textbooks. He actually showed up, with a TV crew close on his heels. They only wanted pictures of him; they paid no attention to me. Instant stardom

Above all, you want to create something you are proud of. That has always been my philosophy of business. I can honestly say that I have never gone into any business purely to make money. If that is the sole motive, then I believe you are better off doing nothing, commented Virgin founder Richard Branson. A business has to be involving; it has to be fun, and it has to exercise your creative instincts.

9.3 Social Entrepreneurship

The idea of social entrepreneurship is gaining ground around the world. This is probably because the concept of commitment to a social cause is linked to the idea of entrepreneurial initiatives, purposeful organization and disciplined cost management on the part of companies. Something along the lines of Richard Branson and Mother Teresa in one and the same person. Moreover, the concept responds to a movement that acknowledges that governments, administrations and existing social organizations do not seem to be coming to grips with certain types of problems, whether because they function inefficiently, are administering rather than satisfying social needs, or because they are simply rigid and obsolete. We need, so goes the thesis, social entrepreneurs, who with new approaches to complex new problems will find and implement suitable answers. The term social entrepreneurship is new, but the concept is not. There have always been social entrepreneurs, and many of our institutions originated because of them. Back in the 19th century, Friedrich von Bodelschwingh created the Bethel Institute in Germany, a world renowned social enterprise that functioned according to economic principles and operated its own artisan workshops, its own electric and water supply, its own schools and training centers. The founder of the Red Cross, Henri Dunant, was most certainly a social entrepreneur, as was Mother Teresa in Calcutta.

Day 33 of Voting and Commenting Phase is here for All Contestants to Read and Refine their Ideas and Projects for Implementation
It is also true that social entrepreneurs are pioneers who work with new approaches instead of attempting to improve existing processes through minor changes. So it is not a matter of what the English speaking world calls best practice, but rather of creating new concepts to solve social problems. Muhammad Yunus is a good example. His Grameen Bank with its microcredit revolutionized the understanding and practice of granting loans. Prior to Yunus, the poor were not deemed creditworthy but, perhaps even more importantly, they were not profitable customers for the banks even if they did repay their loans, because in the conventional banking system very small loans created a disproportionately high administrative burden. And of course no one believed that the poor possessed the skills needed by entrepreneurs. Yunus created a totally new approach, proving that the poor are a good credit risk and that it is possible to create a system that is mostly self financing that charges and collects interest and is applicable internationally. Anyone familiar with the Yunus story knows that he began with a loan of about 27 dollars, a ridiculously small sum by our standards, to help 42 women achieve micro entrepreneurship that is a little bit more than 50 cents per project, and that without exception all the borrowers repaid their loans. I invite you to join me in thinking how we might better understand this new discipline of social entrepreneurship and how to better publicize its opportunities and conditions.

BOSCHEE McCLURG Profits yes or no? I am afraid this question would not get us any further. We have to delve more deeply into the motivations of the actors. Let me share a little story to illuminate this issue. Harvard, July 1998. Howard Stevenson, professor of entrepreneurship, is reporting on a new teaching module for this venerable institution. Ethical conduct, he says, is now a component of management education. You cannot start teaching these principles to your economics students soon enough. He stresses emphatically how important the ethical conduct of its students is to an educational institution especially after the numerous corporate scandals in the US. Then Stevenson stops speaking. Theres a long pause. A few of his listeners grow uneasy, especially as the professor stands before them red faced and looking somewhat unwell. He simply stands there, silently. Perhaps a minute passes, an eternity. As his audience starts to become concerned, he calmly continues, Is there anyone here in this room foolish enough to believe you could do it like this? Create ethical conduct through instruction? Have not there been many others preaching ethics before? Professor Stevenson was right it is not that simple. Stevenson proposed that we examine the situation more closely, analyze the motives and try to figure out how we can create a win win situation.

The corona virus is still on rampage and your Reusable N95 Mask is a nice way to prevent this.I am thankful for the researches and development of the product by your anticipated company which gives room for modifications of the mask. But i would like it if the mask is stable when one is speaking because the traditional masks are very uncomfortable due to the fact that we are always adjusting it when we speak and sometimes we are also forced to remove it due to the uncomfortability. So i assume that the structure is made to fit with stability on human face when speaking.
Also the thickness of masks causes sweats and rashes on sensitive skins and i hope that this mask also provides air space.Those are the major side side effects that i personally hope to be tackled through your mask.I would also like you to give an explanation on the connection of the USB and all the wiring.Because i am concerned about the skin effects and i feel like if the USB and the wiring could bring a lot of skin effects.
Notwithstanding your idea is very interesting because i am beginning to get tired of getting new masks day after day and i would also like to get a piece of the mask to experience how it feels on human body.I would like you to check out my idea so as to get innovative initiatives on how to run your anticipated company.I would also like to work with you through this journey,therefore i have sent a friend request to you to always get in touch with you always. and i hope my request will be accepted.
Don't worry cause your idea deserves my vote and that is what you have gotten.Be sure to express how you feel about my idea on the comment section.I am sure you are itching to get ideas on the effective and profitable running of your company,so the link to my idea is below for you:

Fantastic [email protected] N95 Mask Business Plan. Your idea provising user friendly mask is laudable. To assist in opening up your idea for futher refining, I suggest you consisder the folowing:
What are the tools you will need to execute your project

I think you will need to do a market survey to understand the challenges around masks

Also remember to take the campus online training if you have not already done so; as these trainings are to help campus members navigate through the entrepreneurship journey.

We really enjoyed reading about your idea! Even the fact that you took interest in a global issue and took the initiative to better the community around you is outstanding, and you should be proud.

With the pandemic hindering in-person collaboration, we wanted to share some resources that personally helped our team in working together remotely. ProfiConf grants you access to HD video conferences in a browser, while platforms like Campfire and TeamViewer allows for efficient online collaboration. Hopefully, this helps!

Day 22
As a budding 2020 Citizen Entrepreneurship Contestant from Nigeria South South Nigeria Region I love my idea and project Electricity for Everyone because I seek out to ask many questions than answers, I am 100 percent focus and self discipline, critical thinker, networker, innovator while my major duty now is to help young people across mother Earth to start developing their inherent entrepreneurial skills and talents towards realizing our 17 sustainable development goals and join me now to ask many questions across our 2020 platform
Holger Johnson is just such a multi founder. In addition to Ebuero AG, he has established, co founded or functioned as a business angel actively engaged in the development of about 20 other companies. How does he do it? He concentrates on the entrepreneurial design, from which he formulates objectives and tasks and then supervises their execution. In this way he uses his head and his time in the area in which he excels. He knows full well that he must not permit too much complexity in his entrepreneurial design work. A high degree of complexity would increase susceptibility to error and require more decision making on his part; it would sap more of his energy and divert his attention from the areas where his best talents lie and from what he most enjoys. Campus members use this in your idea or project
I want all to reflect on it
Day 23
Successful companies originate in the mind. The better an entrepreneurial concept is and the more it is
analyzed and fine tuned, the more it will resemble a finished work of art and the more likely it is to be
successful.
I want all to reflect on it
Day 24
Dorothee is the daughter of a colleague of mine. She was an English major but did not want to become a
teacher. In her free time she creates vases, large ceramic pieces. She asked me whether she could not
make a little business out of this. I asked her a whole series of questions. Did she really enjoy doing it?
Did she enjoy it so much that she could imagine doing it over the long term? Are people willing to buy
these vases with their own money? And much more. Dorothee explained that she really did enjoy
working on her ceramics. That there are people who are buying her vases already and that she is earning
money with them, even when she calculates all her expenses and her own work time. And that if she
wanted to, she could ask for more money.
This did not sound bad. In fact, it sounded very convincing. Dorothee would probably be happier with her
vases than she would be working as a teacher in a job she disliked. My advice do it. Do not let yourself
be dissuaded bet on your artistic talent.
I ran into her again a few months later. Curious, I ask her about her business. I am not suited to be a
business person, she tells me. How so? I ask, amazed. Dorothee explains that she took a course in
starting a business, but I failed the balance sheet analysis.
Balance sheet analysis is something valuable. Nobody who wants to understand the financial situation of
a major company like Siemens can skip the balance sheet analysis. But what Dorothee needed is not a
balance sheet analysis. What she needs to know is whether her work is generating enough income.
Every street kid in Manila, every woman in Bangladesh who gets a microcredit from the Grameen Bank,
has the business smarts for this, without formal business administration concepts and techniques. A
formal requirement just frightens people off, especially creative, artistically inclined people. The start-up
consultant would have given better advice if he had simple told Dorothee to collect the receipts for her
expenses and her income and take them to a bookkeeper, or to pay a student to do her income tax
return. With Dorothee, a promising business founder was derailed because of an incompetent startup
consultant.
I want all to reflect on it
Day 25
Getting rid of the fanciful ideas
And where was the campfire? Much too dangerous. The artistic performances? Could you do a somersault in your confirmation suit? Any fanciful ideas had been taken away from the children before they were even aware of it. The concept of the adventure restaurant was dead on arrival.
I want all to reflect on it
Day 26
An Example Making Toothbrushes Cheaper
Not far from Bonn is a factory that makes most of the toothbrushes sold in Germany. A number of well known brands have their toothbrushes made for them there. You, too, can have your toothbrushes manufactured there and sell them under your own name or under some other fancy name. Get together with your friends and acquaintances and start a Toothbrush Campaign. You know that toothbrushes should not be used too long otherwise they will damage your teeth, no matter how expensive or scientific their design. You yourself need at least ten toothbrushes a year. So your own circle of friends and acquaintances is sufficient for a small campaign. Why should your friends buy their toothbrushes from you? You can already figure it out. Not because you are attractive and likeable and can talk your friends into buying them from you, but because naturally your toothbrushes are much cheaper than the toothbrushes they are buying for themselves, even at the discount store. Materials and production cost almost nothing. Toothbrushes become expensive because of the advertising to develop the brand and sales.
I want all to reflect on it
Day 27
Once you have the concept, you go on to researching and identifying appropriate components. This, too, does not have to become a full time job. Do not be satisfied with the first supplier to come along, just because you are happy to have found a component. Inquire, research, investigate, compare. Finally, you are ready to coordinate the components. This, too, is a manageable task where concepts are simple and straightforward.
Under these conditions illustrated in the examples described above founding a company can actually be a kind of part-time job. Launching a company with a safety net, so to speak. Do not give up your day job, your old occupation, until your own idea concept proves to be sound and sustainable. Wait for your concept to prove itself. Do not put all your money on one card, but establish your business on a carefully considered and securely solid basis. It is not true that the fast devour the slow in every situation, but those who are well prepared and work with professional partners will succeed over those who are excitable, overworked and try to organize everything in house.
I want all to reflect on it
Today, I motivate you to make use of my comment and also share with others in the platform so as to learn and improve your idea and project for successful startups and SDGs realization. I share it freely with others ideas and projects so as to join all in achieving our 2020 target in our entrepreneur campus.
I urge everyone today to freely and blissfully cast their votes and comments to my idea and project Electricity for Everyone and this is a link to my idea thanks a lot
