Marine Energy: Large scale conversion.

Stage of Idea conceptual stage

Explain your idea in details:

The objective of this submission is to describe how we can get the maximum amount of working force from tidal wave energy. Defining various forces acting on a floating object, how we can handle unnecessary forces, how can increase useful force, and use it safely. Tidal force on a floating object has two elements: 1) Horizontal force: This is a one-directional force creates by tidal flow/current. 2) Vertical force: Is a bidirectional force creates by tidal waves with gravity. Tidal horizontal force (and with others external any kind of wind forces) on a floating object can be opposed by anchor it properly (by using minimum four horizontal/ long-distance anchors) so that the vertical force remains almost the same. This vertical force is useful and it can be very much useful as easily increase this vertical force by Archimedes Principle (by increasing the size of the object). This bidirectional vertical force is very much suitable for pumping purposes. By installing pump protected by RCC structure, using the vertical upward force of the wave on an anchored floating object continuously sufficient water pumping possible for hydropower station and or desalination. This is a very easy technique to harness energy from ocean tidal energy as already running some small projects. Capacity can be increased as required by the Archimedes Principle. Expensive waterproof devices are not required, compared to the existing hydropower stations dam, big reservoir, big catchment area not required so cost-effective, also no need to think about the related problems like obstructing fish migration, changing river flow characteristics, affect on ecology, problems on important natural areas, agricultural land, relocation of people, etc.

Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development

We know very well about power plant pollution. Our Air land and water are polluting continuously because of power plants. So it is very clear: we need to go through the clean energy economy to overcome the worst impacts of climate change. Renewable energy has tremendous economic development, public health, and environmental benefits. My target is harnessing energy from the unlimited source of energy ocean tidal wave to fulfill the electricity and water demand. Considering the open space available in the ocean, and the tremendous amount of energy it produces, it is possible to get 100% renewable energy for the world. Wave arrival pattern is highly predictable, can accurately forecast around 3 to 5 days in advance. No impact on the local marine ecosystem, also no need to think about the related problems like obstructing fish migration, changing river flow characteristics, affect on ecology, problems on important natural areas, agricultural land, relocation of people, etc. My idea regarding Tidal wave energy large scale conversion technology is very much suitable to mitigate the world's energy crisis and climate change issues by mitigating air, water, and land pollution. So this idea was accepted by energy conferences like AWTEC 2018, energy3 conference 2019, ICREN 2019, 5th world bioenergy conference 2019, EARTH SCIENCE 2019, ICCC 2019, OCEANS 2019 Seattle, ICoRER 2019 and Renewable Energy 2020 for presentation. Wave energy does indeed carry the potential to provide significant contributions to local, regional, and global electricity production measures. And so considering impact and the potential it will be accelerating a sustainable energy transition.

Plans for implementation and sustainability

Primarily I discuss with a local engineering firm, and for implementation agreed about doing work as a collaborator. We are planning to start work getting government approval/permissions, site selection, designing, searching other collaborators(s) and investor(s). This is a very easy technique so that any engineering firms can go for implementation. Considering the energy crisis, air/water/land pollutions, and climate change issues we need to work on the idea to implement.

Your profile

I completed my BSc Engineering (EEE) at the age of 24 years from Dhaka University of Engineering and Technology (DUET), Diploma Engineering (Electrical Technology) studies from Bangladesh Sweden Polytechnic Institute (BSPI) and Secondary School Certification from Power Development Board Secondary School, Kaptai. For the last 14 years, I am working for PGCB Ltd. a premier organization of the Government Power Sector. Personally I am interested in marine tidal energy harnessing. Officially I visited Japan, Germany, China, and several times in India. I would like to see the world using 100% renewable energy. I am well experienced with the problems of the Energy crisis, Air pollution, Global warming, and Climate change issues, on the other hand, I have seen the Unlimited source of energy OCEAN TIDE and is inspired me to find out the idea about Harnessing Marine Energy. This idea was accepted by some International Conferences for presentation. Abstract published in ICREN2019 Book Of Abstracts (page-98,99) https://premc.org/doc/ICREN2019/ICREN2019_Book_Of_Abstracts.pdf and research article published in Journal of Nuclear Energy Science and Power Generation Technology https://www.scitechnol.com/peer-review/tidal-wave-energy-large-scale-conversion-technology-hr26.php?article_id=9649

Social distancing during this post-crisis pandemic implies many painful losses in our society,among them are the restaurants, bars, gyms, houses of worship, barber shops and other places we frequent that are neither work nor home.Mobile tap bartending initiative concept in social entrepreneur recognizes the roles these semi-public, semi-private places play in fostering social association, community identity and civic engagement.In giving people a familiar setting for social interaction among regulars with the new norm we encourage place attachment- that is, the bond between a person and a place.experiencing the crisis from the fortress of our living spaces, we may enjoy the feeling of being in a haven that protects against this invisible new enemy together,for honestly we have lost the social and psychological intimacy in our community, it is a significant loss that contributes to a healthy and flourishing society.This places fulfill needs for social interaction, gatherings, assisting with important celebrations in society. They also provide trainings and employment, community involvement through sponsored fundraising event's as a way of supporting charities and act as our local neighbours giving back to local community, while some focus on hiring individuals that might otherwise find it difficult to be hired elsewhere.They connect with our communities by sourcing ingredients from our local farms and dairies tooStaff and regulars are part of the scene here and so are strangers.While not as diverse or accessible as public spaces,mobile tap bartending caet will rely on a certain amount of heterogeneity to convey social importance and bring vitality into our sustainable community in this way complementing public spaces like parks, plazas, playgrounds, streets and sidewalks which are free and open places that offers contact,cooperation and even conflict with a range of mostly unknown people.hence,if public spaces expand our social relationships and liberize our world view,this initiative bartending cart will anchor us to a community where we are recognized and our needs accommodated as community in whole.Third places are predictable and comfortable, a setting where we will all feel at home!

Kindly [email protected]/ideas/26/18538

Support by a vote,comment,and spread the word HELP REOPEN OUR CLOSED DOORS SUSTAINABLY-that waiter,staff,bartender who used to serve you with a smile,and keep them on payroll!
THANK YOU IN ADVANCE!

My dear [email protected] Moniruzzaman, I am happy for the journey so far for all of us. It is September and perhaps we are in the middle of this great campus. In view of this, I am using this medium to thank you for supporting my idea with your comments and votes. I want you to understand that your support is very important to me and the people my idea seek to serve. Once again, to add to all my other comments on your idea, I am sharing with you further tips on traits of being a successful entrepreneur and how to acquire them.

If you are pursuing a dream for becoming a young successful entrepreneur you should know that there is no given recipe for becoming like one of the famous persons that inspire and motivate you all the time. However, there are some characteristics, which successful people share, that can be considered as the main ingredients or the salt and pepper of champion entrepreneurs.
History has shown that some people were at the right time at the right moment, while entrepreneurs have confirmed something else. No matter what the moment was, the ones who took risks succeeded.

According to entrepreneur.com successful people have the following traits:
Determined, Not afraid to take risks, Confident,Constant learners, Know how to deal with failure, Passionate about their businesses, Highly adaptable, money management, Networking experts, Great at selling and promoting

Meanwhile, investopedia.com shares a list that includes these traits:
Passion and motivation, Risk taking, Self-belief, hard work and discipled dedication, Adaptability and flexibility, Money management, Business and market understanding, Planning, Networking abilities, They include failure in their plans and They kind of doubt themselves

I hope you will derive some benefits from this.

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/

Best of luck in your implementation.

It is important to have a clear sense of mission. Think about who will it benefit, what difference will it make, and how are you going to go about it? It helps to determine the level of social impact in the short and long term and how it will be measured and evaluated. This will also help in reaching the right audience and identifying your marketing and networking strategies.

My [email protected] Marine energy: Large scale conversion, Happy Month of September you. Two months into voting and commenting stage in the Youth Citizen Entrepreneurship competition, I really appreciate every one of us for how far we have come in this competition and still going. Once more, in addition to my previous comments on your idea, I am again sharing an article from the campus competition on the need to focus on support each other ideas and projects with comments.

Comments are an important part of the Youth Citizen Entrepreneurship Competition. One single comment is the first step for getting involved with the Entrepreneurship Campus community.

They help the campus community to be more dynamic and interactive. They create bonds between the campus members and they can also be the ground for dialogue and even long lasting friendships. In our daily life, we all enjoy comments that other people leave on our posts, either in social media posts or in blog posts. A comment, even a smiley face has the power to makes us feel good.

But, in the case of the campus competition, besides the fact that comments make us feel good and confident, comments are really helpful, because they can also provide free advice to our ideas and projects.

Also as highlighted by a recent article in the blog section of the campus competition on the importance of comments, two out of the five points of the Personal Activity Indicator are the following
1. The entrant personal engagement among the Entrepreneurship Campus community by commenting and giving advice to other entries.
2. The number of meaningful comments the entrant idea and project has received from the online Entrepreneurship Campus community.

Therefore, we must think about comments as a tool that can bring value to the person that reads it. It is true that this is a competition, but our ideas and projects will continue their development even when this edition of the Youth Citizen Entrepreneurship Competition will end.

As a campus member, each of us would like to read meaningful suggestions and opinions about our specific entry. Hence, we on our part must post honest, unbiased, helpful, and unique comments on others projects and ideas. How

After reading someone else idea or project, you can express your opinion about the entry, congratulate the user for his or her initiative and efforts, or suggest something that would help the further development of the entry. Every single comment we post must be unique just like each of the ideas and projects is.

I hope this benefits our activities in the campus. In view of the above, I am requesting you to please consider voting and commenting on my idea Eduheal should you come online soon @ https://www.entrepreneurship-campus.org/ideas/26/17805/

Thank you for supporting my idea with your votes and comments

Many social entrepreneurs build cognitive dissonance into their business models. Their beneficiaries (usually low-income families) have little in common with their customers (usually high income). My advice to any nonprofit leader is to develop a business model in which the customer is as close to the beneficiary as possible

Technology at its best. Its so unusual to see a well established article of this nature and just pass. I wish you all the best in your endeavor as i believe that if well established will surely go a long way

[email protected] Energy, your idea is impressive. In addition to my other comments on your idea or project, I realize some of us do not think it is necessary to collaborate, vote and comment on each other ideas or projects, so, I am sharing with you the importance of us supporting each other even though we are in a competition.
As we all know, the voting process started here at the Youth Citizen Entrepreneurship Competition since 6 July and all Campus Members are excited.
But why it is important to vote one another, even if we are in a competition
When you vote and comment, you support the best ideas or projects. It is very important to give a vote to an idea or project you think is a good one and has possibilities to be implemented in the reality. Since the voting process is open to the public, some people can get undeserved votes and better ideas that are running in this competition can be left behind. That is why your votes and comment.

When you vote and comment, you support innovation and change.

Dear @Marine Energy. Again, your idea is a great one. However, while reading through friends ideas and projects , I discovered that some of us are yet to understand the journey we have engage ourselves on, because we are not even voting our own ideas or perhaps not even visiting the platform in months and it looks as if our ideas or projects are just there looking for us to attend to them, so in addition to my other comments on your idea or project, I am sharing with you a letter to all entrepreneurs from one of the campus articles; meant to encourage me and you in this journey we have decided to engage ourselves. So please to read and decide what you want.

Dear Young Entrepreneur,
How are you and your business today
Having stepped out to start your own business, let me first say a big congratulations to you
Your life is about to change, that is it, if it has not started changing already. I am writing this letter to let you know why I think so.
I know you are very busy and if you are not, you will soon be, so let me cut to the chase. Now an entrepreneur, time means a whole lot to you. As a matter of fact, it is your most vital currency, unfortunately, though, you do not and will never have so much of it.

When I first heard that you have decided to become an entrepreneur, to chart your own course in the crazy world of business, a part of me was really excited and then the other half was a bit worried.

Let me tell you about both halves, so you know.

I was excited because you have decided to walk a path in life that many people are so scared of taking. Too many people out there have dreamt of launching out and be an entrepreneur, of turning their idea into physical reality and build a real business from it, of giving their dream a chance to happen in the marketplace, but only a few have had the guts to take that bold step. For the rest, they simply continue to sit quietly in their couch of rationalizations or pretexts and stare at the screen of their business idea with the hope that one day everything will turn out perfect and then they would get up and do something about it.

I have seen many of such folks and I suspect you know some of them. I call such people the Dreamers United Football Club and nothing more. They prefer to just dream and dream about being an entrepreneur than to take steps to become one. They have a business idea, sometimes even more than one, but they hold themselves back from taking action. In their minds, their ideas are running on full production scale, but in reality, nothing is happening. They just stay put in their comfort zones and watch the caravan of time and opportunities drive past them. Well, I really do not blame them. Truth be told, being an entrepreneur is not breeze. It comes with its own level of stress, unknowns, and fears. And who likes stress, unknowns, and fears, anyway

Yet, you looked past those factors and still chose to do this, to put yourself on the line, to defy the odds and enroll yourself in this new profession the profession of starting an enterprise and seeing it grow and add real value to the lives of people and create sustainable wealth in the process. For this, I salute you.
Think of the number of lives your business will transform. The capacity you will develop. The jobs you will create. The mouths your business will feed. The innovations it will birth. The culture it will influence. The revenues it will generate. And the great contributions it will make to national and, yes, global development. Actually, your taking this step to start is the beginning of something monumental the birthing of a great future, more like it. So, you can now see why I am excited for you, right

Having said that, let me talk to you about why I am a bit worried.
Actually, I am not here to scare you off, but neither am I here to hide the stark realities from you.
So, I will say this to you, straight up. If I push your buttons in the process, please do not mind me.
I am only doing this for your own good.

Being an entrepreneur is not childs play. This is not bread and beans I am talking about here. I am talking about real involvement and commitment on your part. Starting and building a successful enterprise requires real work and sacrifices. lots of it.
For your information, there will be long and lonely nights.
There will be days when you question your sanity for taking this step. There will be days when customers, employees, suppliers, family members, or government will not be there to encourage you and you just have to encourage yourself. There will be days when it seems like the world is spinning so fast and you just cannot seem to get a hold of things or connect the dots. Days when you do not feel the usual juice to hit the street and make a sale. Days when the eyes of your rising costs and falling profits just refuse to blink. What would you do

Yes, I agree with you. Being an entrepreneur makes you free. You are free because you are now your own boss, but, mind you, you are not free from the responsibilities that such title places on you. You can choose to wake up and go to bed anytime you like, nobody will question you, but then remember you are an entrepreneur and it is your duty to stay responsible. Responsible entrepreneurs stay true to their commitments and they operate with a certain sense of urgency in the way they approach life and their goals. As an entrepreneur, your daily habits will have to change and you must be willing to give up short term pleasures to achieve long term gains.

This is not the time to play around. So, snap out of your wet dream and smell the coffee. Nobody is going to take you by the hand and lead you all the way to your destiny, toll free. The world is too busy to pamper you to success. You must learn to paddle your own boat and tell your own story. But as you do so with focus and diligence, here is the good news, help will begin to meet you along the way.

To build a successful business, you must stay discipline in the way you manage your time and priorities, manage relationships, deal with money, take care of your health, serve your customers, and how you deal with the issues of leadership. Do not let your small beginning make you small minded. The size of your vision really matters and must be taken seriously. And then always know why you do what you do; let your purpose guide and compel you to be the best version of yourself.

Trust me, being an entrepreneur is a different kettle of fish.
As an entrepreneur, you will not only be expected to change the way you think, but also to change the way you think about the things you think about. Remember you are not the only one in the market. There are many others like you out there. In business, they are called competitors. And they are there to compete with you and win over your customers. So, you must sit up and constantly look for better ways to have your customers fall and stay in love with you. Learn from your competitors. Of course, they have a lot to teach you, but in doing so, remember that you must not lose that very thing that makes you unique. Your uniqueness is your trump card, so guard it and never lose it.

And that reminds me. Having good products is good but please do not assume that because you have good products, it will always sell itself in the market. Well, that era has come and gone. In this era, your product must not only be good but you must also learn how to sell it well.

This is the mistake most young entrepreneurs make and I really do not want you to make the same mistake. So, if you do not know how to sell, then go learn it. As a matter of fact, if you do not know anything, go out there and learn it. There are countless of quality resources and good people out there who will be willing to teach you the right stuffs. But then when they teach you, please endeavor to take consistent actions and fine tune your process because only then will you improve and produce the results you seek.

Certainly, I cannot tell you everything you need to know in this letter but I promise to always stay in touch and write to you every so often. But I hope you can find meaning in what I have told you so far and get proactive. Please do not be scared. But even if you are, not to worry. Every great entrepreneur you have heard of had once experienced fears. When I started out as an entrepreneur years ago, I had my own fears too. So, you are not alone in this. It is normal. It shows you are human. But what I can say to you is that you should not let your fears stop you. Use them to your advantage.
Approach your business with boldness and grit. Let your fears open you up for quality learning and gratitude. You can pull this off and I believe so much in you. Just stay focused and positive. Stay honest with yourself, do the work involved, and never, ever lose sight of your big picture.

I got your back on this.

Dear friend, I hope this helps in motivating you to pick up from where you stopped and keep forging up

Best wishes in this journey and in your implementation. Stay positive on the competition. It teaches us a lot of things to keep us sailing to the beach.

Welcome You Today To Our Sharing Phase
I want to ask some questions
Do you take your on line training course?
How do you feel?
And if yes?
How was your experience?
If No why?

This is the time to read and reflect with my sharing of today to others.

There is much to suggest that entrepreneurs can live a freer, more intense and probably more fulfilled life than many of their contemporaries. To be sure, few people possess such extreme personalities as Richard Branson nevertheless many of the better known founders are free spirits, with a personality profile closer to artists than to managers and bookkeepers
Page 133
Entrepreneurship as an Adventure The thrill that many people seek in an adventure vacation can also be found through entrepreneurship, through innovative and at times extravagant professional work. The strains of wage labor are inadequately mitigated by the worker focus on vacation. What makes a vacation exciting for a short time could instead be used to make work more fulfilling throughout the entire year.
Page 134
Say Goodbye to Old Ways of Thinking do not draw conclusions about the future based on the past Innovative start ups are the engine for modern economies. They bring new technologies, new ideas and new concepts to the market, they maintain competitiveness, and they lead to increased productivity. On this, economic experts agree.
Page 134
Need Innovative Start ups in its country report on Germany 2005 the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor GEM points out the following innovative start ups stimulate competition, accelerate structural change and, if successful, generate growth and jobs. For a highly industrialized country like Germany, with few natural resources, they are the key variable for international competitiveness. Consequently Germany must intensify its efforts to increase innovation, in particular to foster innovative start ups, especially in knowledge intensive sectors.
Does our Educational System Teach for Entrepreneurship? In the real world of the market, decisions are always made under conditions of uncertainty. School, however, is a system of certainty. The material is preselected, published in textbooks. The teachers know the exercises, the approaches for solving the problems and the solutions themselves. Complex reality is didactically reduced and assigned to particular subjects. Thus the setting of the educational system is at odds with the demands of entrepreneurship.

Has our Entrepreneurial Spirit Emigrated? And what about the entrepreneurial spirit? With the emergence of the investor in place of the entrepreneur, the emergence of industrial policy instead of market forces and the government favoring of national champions instead of enforcing antitrust law, our entrepreneurial spirit seems to be in the process of dying out. For quite some time now the threat of mass layoffs by the major players has succeeded in extorting desired policies from the government. The ugly motto of privatize the profits and socialize the losses has begun to catch on among the public. For the little guys the risk remains as high as before extremely high, in fact. Most of them are gone within five years of start up.

Declaration of Independence
Entrepreneurship must liberate itself from the clutches of business administration. The hour of independence has struck. Allan Gibb, an outstanding personality in the field of startup research in Great Britain, goes so far as to urge that entrepreneurship be completely liberated from what he calls the business knowledge context. The significance of an intensive engagement with the concept has been pushed aside by the domineering transmission of business administration knowledge. It is necessary, says Gibb, to rescue entrepreneurship from this marginalization and to discard its customarily close connection with business administration because this is a much too restrictive pattern of thinking.
An Invitation to a Dance
Jonas Ridderstråle & Kjell Nordström, two Swedish economists, gave their book Funky Business a German subtitle that translates into something like How Smart Brains Get Capital to Dance. Their central thesis is that the new champions in economic life will be those who have ideas, even if they lack capital. The losers will be the capitalists with no ideas.
Faltin As economists we know that the cause or centre of unequal income distribution and unequal wealth distribution is due to commercial activity. That is where the problem starts. Those who are entrepreneurs usually accumulate a lot of money and others do not. So if you can increase participation in entrepreneurship that would be the decisive point to change society and all the inequality.

Yunus: Absolutely. My own feeling is all human beings can by birth become entrepreneurs. It is rooted in the person itself. But the society we have created does not allow most of the people to bring out the gift they carry inside of them. They do not know that they possess the entrepreneurial capability. They look at it in a way as I do not know what to do. I work for you because I have nothing good to discover inside of me. That is the point where society goes wrong. Society should encourage everybody to explore the potential they have inside of them. It is a wonderful gift you have and never unwrapped, never looked at and that is why you do not know. That is where we are coming from in creating the problem of inequality because your own thinking has remained little. You have not seen that you are there. If you were aware of your capabilities, you could contribute those to the society.

Page 158 - 159

Faltin But nobody believes that. You say everybody possesses the capability to engage in commercial activity, even the ones who are not highly educated and not in the hunting field. Can really everybody become an entrepreneur?
Yunus Yes. Even the beggar woman or the beggar man in the streets of Bangladesh, India or Africa has as much entrepreneurial potential inside as anybody else in the world. They simply have never opened their box to find out that it is all in there because they never knew that it is there. Society never allowed, never facilitated unwrapping that gift. In terms of potential we are all equal. Some have discovered or caught a little of that potential, others have not.

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.

Day 32 of Voting and Commenting Phase is here for All Contestants to Read and Refine their Ideas and Projects for Implementation
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.

Day 34 of Voting and Commenting Phase is here for All Contestants to Read and Refine their Ideas and Projects for Implementation
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.

Once [email protected] Energy: Large Scale conversion. 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 form 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

Hello,

Congratulations on your idea! It has meaning and it can brainstorm solutions to work for a better world.
You have to know that in thinking of a better world, we have fantastic ideas.
But how do we present these ideas to society? We want to integrate into the entrepreneurial world.
From all this, we want to help, innovate, reform according to the objective of our ideas.
You have to know that we must take care to control our ideas, put them out well, know the consequences, take sustainability into account, to name just a few.
We can then ask ourselves "how am I going to do for a good implementation? For the management? Will the company be able to benefit from what you will do? How will you do for the sustainability of your business? do you to meet the three level of sustainability? What are your advantages? "
In short, know what you really want and improve the vision you have. This is my support for you!

While embarking on a quest to change the world may feel lonely, it is important to remember that social entrepreneurship is a team sport, and other people are willing to help. Social entrepreneurs need to stay open and attentive to potential partnership and collaboration opportunities. In many cases, collaborative initiatives and joint-ventures can achieve social/business goals much more effectively than solo endeavors.

@Marine Energy: Large scale conversion. Once more your idea is innovative. In addition to my other comments on your idea, I am sharing with you a simple business plan to help you further refine your idea for a successful implementation. Please not that this plan is not quite different from the requirements of the Youth Citizen Entrepreneurship Competition.

PROBLEM: What problem will your business solve
PROMOTION: How will your target customers learn about your business
SOLUTION: What will your business provide to solve that problem
COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE: What will your business do better than the competitors
BUSINESS MODEL: How will your business make money
FINANCIAL PROJECTIONS: How much money do you need to start? How much will you earn every month And how much will you spend every month
TARGET CUSTOMERS: What type of people will purchase your products or services
FUNDING REQUIRED: How much money do you need to start the business

I honestly suggest that before you submit your idea or project, please ask yourself these questions and even if you have submitted your idea, do remember that we still have opportunity to refine our ideas and resubmit. I hope that you find this beneficial to your idea.

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.
I hope you will derive some benefits from this.

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/
Best of luck in your implementation.

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

Day 15
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

Campus members I want to ask all of you, What do my friends and I lack? Could not we make certain things simpler, better, cheaper? What would I like to do, in collaboration with others? It is a question of finding an initial idea, selecting one from among the subjects you have already thought about.

Anyone who is actively creative no matter what the field knows that often the best ideas arise in moments of solitude, especially when the task is to work on a new puzzle rather than on an existing one. There is another situation that may help illustrate this principle a school child who reads a classmates essay is already caught in the web of that essays thoughts.

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.

Day 16
The difference between Invention and Innovation. Campus members Invention and innovation appear to be closely related. Many people believe there must be an invention at the beginning of every entrepreneurial success story. The rest is then merely a question of implementation.

Day 17

The difference between entrepreneurship and business administration

At this point, it will be helpful to take another look at the relationship between the terms entrepreneurship and business administration. While the latter describes the organizational and administrative aspects of business, I propose that we use the term entrepreneurship to highlight the creative, innovative components of establishing a new business.

Note, entrepreneurship is unconventional way why business administration is conventional way.

Day 18

Campus members I want you to apply this today, based on Patents and new technologies are only the raw material

Let us take these thoughts a little further. Until now we have tacitly assumed that startups originating from innovative concepts are neglected or overlooked by mainstream researchers and consultants, whose primary focus of attention has been on the so called technology oriented startups. An invention, the patent based on it, or a new technology, seemed to be a solid basis for establishing a new company.

Day 19
What good entrepreneurial design must accomplish

We have to make high demands on entrepreneurial design because it must provide solutions to a whole
range of problems faced by startups.

What good entrepreneurial design must accomplish
1. Work out clear market advantages
2. Secure a head start over imitators
3. Protect against technological obsolescence
4. Protect against commercial obsolescence
5. Minimize financing costs
6. Include marketing as an integral component of the entrepreneurial design

The first and most important criterion is that the concept demonstrates market advantages over
established competitors.
All my fellow contestants 2020 should endeavor to read it today and apply to their innate idea and project, be focus

Day 20

Campus members based on this Working at the Puzzle

Good entrepreneurial design is the result of a search process much like trying things out and piecing together a jigsaw puzzle. The process is similar to creating a composition where you keep working until everything fits and every false note has been eliminated.

I believe it is helpful to treat this mental activity as a form of recreation, just as you would work a real puzzle. After a little practice, it gets easier to move the pieces around to see if they fit. You should get just as much pleasure from this as a child who enjoys puzzles and takes satisfaction each time the pieces fit.

Day 21

Campus members did you know that a Good entrepreneurial design is something that one might call plain style, where one has tightened, simplified and looked deeply into the substance of a work until one has eliminated every superfluous ornament. In economics, this means saving on manpower, capital, energy, materials, and transportation. Like good literature, good art or good music, good entrepreneurial design may draw its power from simplicity and clarity.

Simplicity
is the ultimate sophistication
LEONARDO DA VINCI
These days an entrepreneur is more like an artist than a manager. The close relationship between entrepreneurship and artistic endeavor is sometimes even reflected in word choice.

See how Steve
Wozniak, the co founder of Apple, describes his work below

A good engineer is like an artist. When you develop something, every detail is like a
brushstroke that has to be exactly right.
Just as Ernest Hemingway worked at polishing his sentences for days and weeks, I work at
Apple. We composed like solo musicians.
From notes come melodies, then stanzas and finally an entire song.

Day 15
As a Nigerian Serial Entrepreneur and 2020 Best Idea Contestant. My sole role in this platform is to mobilize my co global youth led innovation towards exchanging and supporting their creative ideas and projects towards contributing to achieving the sustainable developing goals. While envisioning to do volunteer work and assisting upcoming start ups across borders soon.

Campus members did you know, Muhammad Yunus, winner of the Peace Nobel Prize, is a serial entrepreneur in the social sphere? The Grameen Bank with its micro credits is only one of the many enterprises he has promoted. They include the solar energy company Grameen Shakti, as well as Grameen Phone, already a telecommunications giant, and Grameen Danone, a joint venture for the production of fortified yogurt, designed to make up for nutritional deficiencies typical among Bangladeshis rural population. The Grameen group even includes an investment company. Yunus uses the tools of capitalism because he is convinced that it is possible to use our economic system more efficiently than it is being used today. Anyone who has ever had anything to do with him perceives him as relaxed, amiable, totally present and not overburdened, even if his multiplicity of projects and duties would lead you to expect that.

Day 16

Campus members did you know, from 4 10
Successful Companies Originate in the Mind?

Did you know developing a good entrepreneurial concept is a challenge, whether it is the result of arduous work or cheerful contemplation? Many paths are traveled better in ones head than with ones feet. Sometimes one needs as much as ten years and 50,000 pieces of information before an entrepreneurial concept is born, notes Professor Simon of Carnegie Mellon University. Simons experience should not frighten us, but it demonstrates that a well thought out idea is not a trivial and fleeting thing that gains substance only after it has been implemented through business administration.

Campus members please check page 43 of Brains versus Capital book and apply it in improving your idea and project.

Day 17

Campus members did you know,

Small is Beautiful was a famous book title from the 1960s, but its subtitle was even better? Economics
as if People Mattered. We need an economy where people play the decisive role one that places the advancement of mankind at its center.

Campus members please check page 44 of Brains versus Capital book and apply it in improving your idea and project.

Day 18

Campus members did you know you can simply apply the quote below and use for improving your idea and project

If I had gone to business school,
I never would have started the company.

ANITA RODDICK

That is simply mean that you can become a successful start up without you going to business school.

Day 20

Campus members did you know that Get big, but remain small
The principle is Get big, but remains small. This is the advantage of making use of large, efficient units
without having to establish and operate them yourself. Your company grows, but the core activity that
you control remains small, and thus coherent and manageable.

My Co Contestants CEC 2020

Campus members did you know that the first step is to have an idea and to work on it until a compelling concept emerges. The second step is to find pre existing professional components with which you can bring the idea to life in all its artistic details.

Concept plus components

A carefully thought out concept plus professional components that is the magic
formula with which we can challenge the major players of the economic world.

My advice Start small and build momentum, Being a social entrepreneur can be very difficult, you are constantly in a field dominated by changing dynamics, you will often face business challenges, and you have to start small and build your enterprise from the ground up. You must be resilient, realistic, and passionate about your goals and the impact you are trying to achieve.

July 23, 2020 10:43

Once again your idea is fantastic @marine energy. Once again your idea is innovative @Solar grid. In addition to my previous comment on your idea, , I am sharing with you what can help us refine our ideas and projects for success.

What does Angel Investors want
Angel investors are an increasingly important source of funding for startups and early stage businesses. Angel investors are experienced entrepreneurs who usually have developed and sold their businesses and want to help startups to develop like they did.

So what do they look for and how can you fit their criteria for investing. Here is what you need to have when pitching to angel investors
1. Sound business plan: There is no getting away from this and a solid business plan and business model will attract angel investors. Having achieved some sales will be a great help and ensure you have regular and transparent accounts.
2. Financial returns: like any investor they will want returns and only invest if they think that your business model will achieve those returns for them.
3. Experienced management team: similar to venture capital firms, angels would like to see an experienced management team. However, given their own experience of starting a business they will understand that sometimes it takes time to build a good team and they will help in funding such people. They will also have a great network that can be used to help the business.
4. Industry sector and special interest: most angel investors will want to put something back into the community and will have developed special interests or stick to industry sectors they know.
5. Passion: like all investors they will want see that the founder has a passion for what they want to achieve and this will be foremost in their minds when they first listen to your pitch.
6. Opportunity to be involved: one of the main reasons angels invest is to recreate the fun they had in developing their own business and they will want to be more involved in advising and guiding businesses they invest into. If the matchup is right, take every opportunity to grab their time and contacts to help with your business, after all they have been through it before.
7. Share of the busines: they will negotiate a share of your business and want a formal shareholders agreement. You may give up part of your equity but have a powerful ally when it comes to looking for funding at the next growth stage of your business.
8. Exit strategy: angels will want to see a clear exit strategy for your business so that they can achieve the returns in the long run. Ensure that this is clear and align your interests with their own.
Angels usually invest smaller sums and this can range from thousands to a few hundred thousand. They can also club together to raise more funds and there are many Angel investor clubs with an online presence.
Most importantly, ensure that you can get on with the angel since you will be working closely together to achieve business success.

In essence, I will you to understand that what angel investors wants is not very different from the youth citizen entrepreneurship competition application requirement. Please I suggest that you take a careful thought on application of the above points as the points will assist in ensuring that our ideas and project stand out for possible investment from potential investors.

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.

I hope this helps in refining your idea for a successful implementation

I Emmanuel Ekpenyong have read through your idea and it is impressive, but I want to share the commenting phase this week that can help you to improve your implementation, they are below;
July 18, 2020
Day 8
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, l am 100% 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!
The concept of the Tea Campaign did not develop overnight. At the beginning it was not at all certain whether the project would involve tea or some other business. I had no firm notions what my company would look like. At the beginning my only goal was to combine academic theory with handson entrepreneurial practice. Did you know, Prof. Faltin was the Founder of the Concept of the Tea Campaign ?
Day 9
Did you know Prof. Gunter Faltin Concept of the campaign was about unconventional or conventional?
Day 10
There is such a tea all the experts agree on this. It grows on the southern slopes of the Himalayas and is named for the region where it is cultivated Darjeeling. Because I was no tea expert, much less a tea drinker, this is something I learned at the library of the Free University of Berlin. If you could have such an outstanding tea, especially for so little money, perhaps customers would be willing to do without a wide selection. So I thought: as a wine drinker, if I could buy Rothschild Lafite, one of the worlds most expensive wines, for the price of an ordinary house wine, then I would only drink Rothschild Lafite.
Limiting the selection to Darjeeling alone had yet another advantage. How was a customer to recognize that my tea really was a much better value? After all, every merchant claims his goods are the best
quality at the cheapest price.
Campus members did you know if Prof. Faltin made this statement based on convention or function, did you know?
Day 11
Did you know, there was yet another hurdle: how to finance the project? After all, the first step was a major bulk purchase. In international trade the credit period is 60 days. This meant we had two months before the big bill fell due. The ship from Calcutta to Hamburg takes about four weeks. Once in port at Hamburg, the tea would be unloaded at the Port of Hamburg in two to three days. That left a full month to sell as much tea as possible. Thus the idea of a campaign. We had to sell fast in order to be able to pay the big bill.
Day 12
Campus members should all know today that Mother Teresa was a social entrepreneur with a difference, when she said, Never be so busy as not to think of others, so now I urge you all to make sure you share commitment to others ideas and projects happily.
Day 13
Based on the ideas makes the difference, did you know it is the quality of the idea that is the decisive factor an idea that at the outset seemed crazy to almost everyone: only one type of tea and only in big packages? But this was not a whim or a passing fancy it was a very carefully thought out concept. The principle is to build from function instead of following convention. If you systematically look for the factors that make a product like tea so expensive in Germany, you almost inevitably come up with this solution. Although it may seem strange, it does make sense because it cuts costs radically.
Day 14
Not inspirations or passing fancies, campus members did you know that or can you imagine furniture that the customer has to assemble himself? Can you design furniture that can be assembled without woodworking machinery or specialized tools? Does not this require a complete rethinking of how to make wardrobes, tables and chairs? Are customers even willing to put furniture together themselves? Do they have the time and inclination to do so? Do they dare? Is not it unreasonable that people suddenly be required to assemble their own furniture? These are among the many novel questions that scarcely anyone before Ikea founder Ingvar Kamprad had ever asked. Did he get spontaneous positive feedback on these concerns from his circle of friends and acquaintances? I am sure he did not. The solution looks simple, but it demanded unconventional questions and a lot of mental effort before answers emerged yes, customers were willing and able to assemble their furniture and, yes, the price incentives were sufficient to induce them to purchase furniture like this. Kamprad asked questions that, if they had even been asked previously, had elicited only negative responses. Kamprad had to challenge common sense and prevailing views, and he had no industry experts standing at his side. He had to rethink his furniture completely in order to figure out how to construct it so that ordinary consumers would be able to put it together at home.
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.

Did you know, Getting rich is fun but ultimately pointless, unless it manages to improve something? Faltins ideal is neither the company man or woman, nor the person who accumulates wealth for the sake of being rich; his ideal is the artist, the creator, the rebel who questions convention and who aims to lead a rich and meaningful life.

This approach keeps alive the connection between business and pleasure, between work and life, between getting and spending.

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 https www entrepreneurship campus.org ideas thanks a lot

Faltin wants us to minimize risk and to avoid the lure of quick opportunities. His is what I call the slow food version of entrepreneurship take your time, prepare well, then sit back and enjoy. Take pleasure in the preparation as well as the eating; enjoy both the work and its rewards.

This applies to the ways to establish a business. However, not all ways are equal. Many seem narrow, mysterious; others appear clear and open. But all of them are difficult and require hard work, or so it is said. It is striking that along the way you will run across advisers who claim to know the road without ever having traveled it themselves. Even more striking is that when you take a closer look, you find the main route closed. Which of us ordinary mortals starts with a technology patent, research findings or an abundance of capital?

This book describes a road that until now has been little recognized a road that has more to do with ideas and their development than with research and hi tech, a road that does not primarily focus on commercial technologies and the quest for capital. A road more compatible with our own times, one could say; one that makes use of the business tools that are available to everyone, one that makes the realm of entrepreneurship accessible to many more people than is the case today. It is a road that makes the figure of the entrepreneur seem closer to that of an artist or composer than to a typical business owner or manager. It is a path that the author himself has traveled and which he describes from personal experience. And nowadays you can get to Rome more easily and more economically than ever before.

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.

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. You will be at risk of losing your friends or your life partner to others who are under less stress and have more time. You will be the first one in the office in the morning and the last to leave at night. You will have to understand bookkeeping and financial statements. You should have some idea of tax law, business law and labor law, not to mention contract law. You will have to be able to lead your staff. And be able to talk to and shrewdly negotiate with financial institutions. Naturally you will have to have a good marketing plan, keep your business in good order and make sharp calculations. Risks will come at you, and in droves. Not to mention that your chances of survival in the market are less than 50 percent. According to many studies, as many as 80 percent of start ups have failed by year five at the latest. Thus bankruptcy looms at least statistically in return for all your valiant efforts. To put it plainly in our society with the high level of social entitlements that we have achieved, a person would really have to be crazy to start his own business.

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 was raised to be frugal. I did not spend the first money I earned; instead, I invested it in stock. My parents were shocked, and so were my teachers. Economics becomes marketing, finance, organization, and bookkeeping and accounting.

@ Christopher Kaiche, Thanks for your nice comment. Yes, I agree with you that, this is exciting stuff. Wave energy is unique because it is the most concentrated form of renewable energy on earth, with power density much higher than that of wind and solar energy.
Can you please give me your presentation? I want to learn something from that. I like to think about wave energy.

June 30, 2020 22:05

In my IB form 6 class I did a presentation similar to what we you have here. Limitless energy from water bodies using the conversion of wave kinetic energy into electric energy. this is exciting stuff.

Hi Moniruzzaman (I hope I have written it ok. If not, sorry in advance),
Thanks for your comment! I read your project and I thought it was very interesting to the point of thinking Why was this not applied yet? There are so many sources of clean energy that we are not using on their 100% . It's like a waste of energy :) Keep on with this idea. I don't know much about this topic and some terms are like Quantic Physics in Greek to me; but it is interesting and it is a project for a clean solution to the energy crisis some countries are suffering. Can it be simulated in a lab? Like they have machines to create waves and study patterns. Can this system be industrilized that way? With an artificial pool, machinery and all the things to create waves + energy? To be applied where there is no access to the sea.
Kind regards,
Marina.

Marine energy is one of the most effective ways of energy. Kainji dam in Nigeria supplies all the energy needs of my country with recently few cases of solar energy. This is resources consuming idea. I hope you have other Investors

June 8, 2020 16:00

@MD great idea. Marine energy is one of the ways many coutries use in deriving their energy . I my country the basic enery we have is from marine however, it is not enough your project may help to produce more and give to ther countries like mine

June 6, 2020 21:17

You have good project of thinking the way you can get electricity power and other energy through water bodies like oceans it the best project because it is to get profit through natural resources thanks
