Soup of eggshell(hen)

Stage of Idea conceptual stage, planning stage

Explain your idea in details:

Main aim: to build a portable, cheaper machine that could transform the eggshell waste into a healer and prevent-er to various fields , with as equivalent stand as that sold on higher number notes. I have read that eggshells are directly name as waste after the content of the egg is taken out for bakery, cuisines and cosmetics. Moreover, most of the people are not aware of the great values of the eggshell and it's membrane. Hence, a machine at home can make people aware of the values and prepare their own number of need. I am to make a machine that includes eggshell and membrane separator, and to process the two components separately to produce the product separately and use the product separately as required or both as a unit. The other aiding process may include,washing, drying, size reducing, size separating, and sterilizing.

Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development

My idea looks simple and easy establish-able, the eggshells could be crushed into powders simply by mortar and pestle. But the process do not ensure safety and the required fulfillment. My idea is applicable to all who wills to get rid of certain bone related diseases and also to improve the skin health, digestion, nerve and muscle conductivity and better mobility with inclusive of the bone related issues.

Plans for implementation and sustainability

For now, my ideas are just an abstract formed in my mind. So, for now I have no named financing sources or so. With good wills and intentions, I plan to make the device available to all households at an easy affordable price.

Your profile

I am twenty years old as of 3rd June,2020 and currently doing my bachelors in Pharmacy on scholarship basis in India. I am from Bhutan. I have a genuine interest in cooking, hence collected eggshells after making omelettes and used those as fertilizers to aid the growing flowers. I browsed net and came to know that eggshell and its membrane could be used for various purposes at a cheaper rate and at one's own house. Eggshells are basically thrown and disposed off and people have an innate thinking of how psychologically bad a soup of eggshell symbolizes. And hence, I feel people need to upgrade their thinking on it.

My dear Campus [email protected], I am very much grateful for your immense support while we are together in this campus. I appreciate your votes and comments on my idea and will never take this for granted. More so, today being the last day for the cvoting and commenting phase in the competition, I am sharing with you as indicated in one of the articles on this campus, some of the things that can likely put an end to our startups. The essence is for us to guide against them as possible as we can if we want to change the world through our businesses.
Often times we only consider the factors that lead to the success of a startup; however, these are the common factors that we may often overlook that lead to the failure of startups:

1. Being inflexible and not actively seeking or using customer feedback
Ignoring your users is a tried and true way to fail. This was the number one reason given for failure amongst 32 startup failure post-mortems being analyzed. Tunnel vision and not gathering user feedback are fatal flaws for most startups. For instance, ecrowds, a web content management system company, said that: We spent way too much time building it for ourselves and not getting feedback from prospects.

2. Building a solution looking for a problem.
Choosing to tackle problems that are interesting to solve rather than those that serve a market need has often been cited as a reason for failure.

3. Not the right team
A diverse team with different skill sets has also been cited as being critical to the success of a startup company. Team deficiencies have been given as a reason for startup failure almost one quarter of the time.

4. Poor Marketing
Knowing your target audience and knowing how to get their attention and convert them to leads and ultimately customers is one of the most important skills of a successful business. Yet, in almost 30 percent of failures, ineffective marketing was a primary cause of failure. Oftentimes, the inability to market was a function of founders who liked to code or build product but who did not relish the idea of promoting the product. The folks at Devver highlighted the need to find someone who enjoys creating and finding distribution channels and developing business relationship for the company as a key need that startups should ensure they fill.

5. Ran out of cash
Money and time are finite and need to be allocated judiciously. The question of how should you spend your money was a frequent conundrum and reason for failure cited by failed startups. The decision on whether to spend significantly upfront to get the product off the group or develop gradually over time is a tough act to balance. The team at YouCastr cited money problems as the reason for failure but went on to highlight other reasons for shutting down versus trying to raise more money writing:
The single biggest reason we are closing down (a common one) is running out of cash. Despite putting the company in an EXTREMELY lean position, generating revenue, and holding out as long as we could, we did not have the cash to keep going. The next few reasons shed more light as to why we chose to shut down

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.

Happiness is not something that is achieved, it is a skill that is developed and practiced daily. Mastery comes from serving others, because during our darkest moments we must focus on seeing the light.

Your idea is very smart and practical.

Greetings from Kazakhstan! Your project is extremely innovative, but I would like to offer you some specific tips.
1. Reduce the product vision to one sentence
Where to start a startup? Understand what exactly you are doing. If your startup's vision doesn't fit into one sentence, then it will be very difficult for you to convince users that you are doing something really worthwhile. In addition, without a well-defined vision, you are deprived of a reference point that helps you make the right strategic and tactical decisions. Examples of startups with a clear vision:

Airbnb: Creating an open world where everyone can feel at home, wherever they are.
Basecamp: Communication is the foundation of project management.
Lyft (an Uber-like startup): to provide people with pleasant and affordable rides.
Airbnb is a startup with a clear vision

What's the difference between mission, vision and purpose? We covered this issue in an article on the Happy Startup Canvas model used by IT startups.

2. Take a Lean Startup
How to organize a startup that will use resources at a minimum? A lean approach will help here. Lean startup means that you need to attract as few people as possible (the first version of the product could well be created by a team of three people, or you can outsource the creation of MVP) and use cheaper solutions or open source.

For example, the creation of a startup UARoads was not without the use of many open source solutions (OpenStreetMap, Mapnik, Leaflet JavaScript library, etc.), and we involved employees who have their own car for testing. Every day, UARoads receives about 1200 tracks from users, and more than 57 thousand people have joined the service.

Startup UARoads

3. Set deadlines and an accurate budget for the project
Starting a business from scratch involves determining the scope of work, time and budget. How to balance between them? It is worth starting a startup with an MVP, including only critical functions, the number of which may change during the development stage, and set fixed deadlines and budget. Such restrictions will serve as an incentive for your team and motivate them to seek out-of-the-box solutions.

4. Start creating your product from its centerpiece
Basecamp calls this approach Epicenter Design: you start to design the most important part. For example, if you need to create a startup like Medium, then the main element will be the online publishing tool and the article itself. And the design of everything else (profiles, menus, search filters, etc.) is developed only later. With this approach, from the very first day of work on a project, you focus on the most important. For web applications, the process looks like this:

Brainstorm.
Preparing paper sketches. It's much faster and cheaper than creating layouts right away and allows you to quickly make changes or redraw something.
Electronic layout.
HTML screens.
The code.
5. Offer fewer features
You're solving a problem, right? Then give up the beauties that have nothing to do with your decision! Modern users are more likely to choose products with limited functionality (Snapchat), and services like Facebook are considered boring.

Get in the habit of rejecting any new feature proposal. The same goes for feature requests that users submit: consider adding only after it becomes clear that more and more people are asking for the feature. For example, Twitter only started using link previews in 2015, nine years after launch.
The main danger here lies in the fact that in order to create features, some functional improvements (that is, other features) are often needed, which quickly turn the product into something complex and incomprehensible.

6. Remove unnecessary settings
You don't want users to be stuck for half an hour at the settings screen and then just close your app or startup site, do you? Then help them with a choice. After all, it is not so important whether 5 or 7 posts are displayed on the main page. If any nuance is important to users, they will tell you about it, and you can change such minor details.

7. Give your product a personality
Guided by the vision and knowledge of your audience, create a product that has character and principles of its own. Someone may not like them, but those you are targeting will simply be delighted - what you need for a startup!

For example, the corporate messenger Slack has won the hearts of many developers, but there are plenty of opponents to use it. And MailChimp is hard to imagine without a helper monkey:

Mailchimp is a startup with personality

8. Build an intuitive product
Users only look at the instructions and FAQ when something stops working. Make their lives easier: A brief onboarding should be enough to explain how everything works. By the way, check out our article on simple and straightforward interfaces for the web.

9. Don't try to solve problems that don't exist yet.
One such challenge is scaling. Startups worry that they will not be able to quickly scale the service if the MVP is quickly successful. But getting ready for this is 100% impossible. It is much more important to quickly make changes to the product and identify the startup business model that will work for you. And, of course, please your users.

10. Generate Interest Before Launching Your Startup
Here's how to promote a startup in the best Hollywood tradition:

A couple of months before the launch, launch a "teaser": start blogging, show your logo, give hints about what you are working on and start gaining subscribers and first followers on social networks.
Two weeks before launching a startup, switch to preview mode: start talking about features, show a couple of screenshots or videos, tell about use cases. Give out a dozen invites to stir up interest in your startup.
Launch your IT startup with an updated landing page and complete product information.

In a moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing to do, the next best thing is the wrong thing, and the worst thing you can do is nothing. Be miserable. Or motivate yourself. Whatever has to be done, it's always your choice.

Your idea is very smart and practical.

Good day friend

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.

Would really appreciate your vote

Hello!
As teen entrepreneurs, we know how hard it is to find opportunities to earn funds and grants. Struggling with this in the past few months, we researched about databases that can help identify funding opportunities, and we wanted to share them with you! We really hope it helps in funding your idea of using eggshell waste to improve the health of your community in the future :)

The Global Innovation Exchange posts competitions and grants for entrepreneurs worldwide, which you can narrow down by country, focus area, and keywords that fit your innovation. Gofundme Creative Fundraiser is also a great platform for earning funds; with users hailing from 19 countries, Gofundme gives you access to a large number of diverse potential funders.

We hope these resources help. If you have time, we would extremely appreciate it if you could 1 comment on our entry here: entrepreneurship-campus.org/ideas/28/18345/

Keep up the great work!

Sincerely,
0-Gap Mask Team :)

Hello! Your project is extremely innovative, but I would like to suggest some specific advice. Some of them require making choices. And often this choice is really baffling.

1. MVP versus Ideal Product
1.1. "When you launch a project, you can never tell in advance how the market will react to it. Your vision for your product is a hallucination. No need for fantasies. Start with MVP (Minimum Viable Product) and then use Lean Startup (a set of short iterations). This is the only way to create all successful companies. As a result, you yourself will be surprised to see the business you have created. "

1.2. "People don't know what they really need. A poll from the late 17th century showed that passengers desire faster horses. Only Ford, the genius of foresight, gave the world a puffing iron monster called a car."
"No user in the world saw an iPhone until the genius of Steve Jobs completely, from start to finish, formed and brought to the market the perfect product. A few months before the iPhone was released, Jobs ordered a complete overhaul of the product. He did this only because the smartphone that was almost gone into production did not suit the only user - Steve. Smartphones existed before the iPhone, and they all failed. The reason for the failures is simple - the electronics weren't good enough. Do you know what these were the firms and models? It is true that no one remembers these names. "
"Clients simply are not able to desire something completely new - they only know the familiar things."
"For a fund like Sequoia Capital to invest in you, you must have a Strong Vision. Your idea should be bold, strong, initially worked out, breaking the established stereotypes. Therefore, initially she will be hostile and resisted. Forget about any user, even a Stanford professor, giving you product advice. People will call your service gibberish. This is normal for a disruptive startup. The new scares people. But you mustn't give up. "
In general, don't listen to customers. Believe in yourself. You must know what to do.
Such is the advice from respected investors, backed up by facts. Very reasonable. Old Steve can't be wrong.

3. Singles versus team
3.1. Alone, you are doomed. The Y combinator (Harvard among accelerators) simply does not accept startups with fewer than two team members. And for good reason. First, if you are alone in a team, then you cannot convince even your friend to believe in your product. Needless to say about the whole market. Second, the to-do list for a successful launch is too long for one person. There will be neither time nor competence. You will have to program, draw designs and sketches, prepare pitches, presentations, engage in networking, accounting, open a company, and understand contracts. Isn't the list too long even for Alexander the Great?
Plus, Bill Gates had Paul Allen. Larry Page has Sergey Brin. Jobs has Wozniak. That says it all. Need more arguments? But:
3.2. Nginx is a complex piece of software written by one person. Dropbox, whose capitalization exceeded 10 billion, Drew Houston launched alone, and then frantically searched for a co-founder. And finally, Nikola Tesla - this name alone says a lot.

You should feel that you can turn the world around even alone. Otherwise, you won't succeed with the whole team.

4. To take or not to take money from investors?
4.1. You will be committing a crime against your project and against your team if you do not take the investors' money at the moment they are offered to you. Paul Graham. Startup guru. Master Yoda Y-combinator.
"Markets move in a sinusoidal manner. From time to time they are in a fever with the financial crisis. Force majeure happens. These are tough times. Even if you are doing well financially now, take the money. Then they will press you, but nobody will give you money. The project may show negative dynamics in the future. A financial cushion made of banknotes will help you survive difficult times and overcome the "Valley of Death". Otherwise, a crisis will break out, and you will die with your 100% of the company. "
As he looks into the water. Valuable advice. We must follow. But:
4.2. "Don't take investors' money. Fight for the project to the last ruble without surrendering to greedy financial tycoons. Develop on your own as long as a crumb of bread remains in the house. The percentage of your company that needs to be given back in return for investment is too valuable. Today you will give 35% for a million dollars, and tomorrow you will be begged to take 100 million dollars for 3.5%.
"You have to be an idiot to mindlessly throw away a share in a project for some candy wrappers that will still go down the drain."
And remember: "The temptation to give up will be especially strong shortly before victory." Indeed, even Buddha could not have put it better.

5. At what age to start?
5.1. "A million dollar business on the network can only be built by a person who does not yet know that this is an unattainable goal." A successful startup is always a step beyond the existing one, it is building a new world. Only young people have a fresh perspective on things. Only young people see problems that people over 25 simply do not have. Can you think of SnapChat at 40? Names like Zuckerberg, Page and Brin, Kalkanis are clearly signaling the market to invest in the young.
5.2. "An old horse will not spoil the furrow." Young people learn from their mistakes for a long time, and this process is costly for the company. Building a successful business requires wisdom that comes only with experience. Examples of Jack Walsh, Larry Ellison, who built a business at only 35, show the benefits of experienced people. Statistics show that people over 40 are 80% more successful than young people.
"When we invest in young people, our money goes to their education. The team fails, the business will collapse. Then they start a new company, using the experience gained. After several similar iterations, the older founders finally have a successful business. The wise investor will only invest at this moment. "

6. Do only what you know well. Versus. Discover the unknown: treasures are waiting for the horizon
6.1. "Launching a startup is like jumping off a cliff and trying to build an airplane in flight." Reid Hoffman (LinkedIn Creator, Billionaire, Investor). Throw yourself into battle, do the incomprehensible. In the modern world, competition is so intense that all known problems have already been resolved. If thousands of people know about the problem, then you do not have the advantage of a pioneer. The largest companies pay millions of analysts to report known issues. After that, the giants cast thousands of their employees to solve these problems. Everyone wants to make money. You cannot compete with Google. Therefore, tackle only those problems that analysts will never know about. How to do it? Only by engaging in a completely new direction in which no one has experience, including you. You will be the first to gain experience in the process.
6.2. Do only what you know well. Successful start-ups are obtained solely on the inside, on a deep knowledge of the industry. Long-term work in some areas gives a person an understanding of problems that others simply do not see. You need to quickly overcome the "Valley of Death" and make a profit. It is an unaffordable luxury to waste resources on experimentation. For every Columbus, there are thousands of seafarers still feeding fish at the bottom of coral reefs.

7. Know your monetization or just attract users
7.1. Before starting the project, decide on how the service will make money. Do you have a ton of users, cool retention (return) and insane growth that Facebook never dreamed of? Wait to rejoice, history remembers a ton of these failed companies. As a rule, they sell a ruble for 10 kopecks. For example, free services for uploading pictures and inserting to forums, services for free uploading files - such projects are rapidly gaining popularity, but, like two-hundred-kilogram boars, they constantly consume the capacity of server disks and the bandwidth of your communication channels. Soon, losses start to amount to hundreds of thousands of dollars. And so it will be until you run out of money. After all, closing such a traffic project for a startup is worse than stepping on your throat.
More examples - YouTube's appetite was reaching a million dollars a day before it started bringing in the first cent. It's good that it was acquired by Google, which had that kind of money. A lot of YouTube's competitors just went broke. Or recall Groupon, which sold other people's services at half price - soon restaurants, whose revenue fell sharply, refused to serve customers at half price.
7.2. The main commandment of Silicon Valley investors is that a project should focus on only one thing at a time. Growth or monetization. The combination is equal to death. Making a profit from a project that has no users is problematic. So forget about monetization and only think about user growth and retention. We will give you the money. Look who has taken over the Internet now - giants like Pinterest, which has reached billions in capitalizations without even thinking about making money. You know, when you're big, they just buy you for that. As was the case with the hopelessly unprofitable Tumbrl (Yahoo bought it for a billion). In our world, it is important to be a big hippo. Nothing else matters. Instagram, SnapChat, WatsApp, Viber and others like them. There is a tendency that is criminal to ignore. The rest of the world just doesn't understand anything about the internet. Just create a project that users will love, and the money will come to you.

8. Is a technical director needed right from the start?
8.1. From the very first day you found a startup, you need a good CTO. Better if it is a genius with Asperger's syndrome. A quiet type, avoiding people and spending the whole day at the computer simply because he has nothing else to do. Such a person can hack the Pentagon network in three days, asking for only two burgers and a two-liter bottle of Coca-Cola.
If you start without those. director, then your project will fail. You just waste a lot of time, initial motivation (fuse is very important), but you can never do cool tech stuff, and your service will go down at the first load. You will have to rewrite all the code, and this is at the moment when the money has already run out, and competitors saw your takeoff and copied your service in two and a half days.
Freelancers will begin to blackmail you, realizing how much you need a new function, and will take the project hostage. One crafty freelancer can suck a hapless startup's wallet dry. As a result, the latter will go around the world with a cart, taken away from the nearest supermarket.
Quality paid development is a utopia. For example, Indians (inexpensive literate freelancers) confuse a footer with a header. Think for yourself, your English is a foreign language and theirs too. Broken phone in a square. Belarusian developers will take money and disappear, realizing the opacity of legal boundaries.
After all, there are many more gifted technical directors than there are good entrepreneurs with ideas. I will tell you exactly. Just look at GitHub - how many talents there are who mold beautiful dummies, and do not find use for their technical genius. They need an entrepreneur with an idea, they themselves are looking for such.
8.2. Why do you need a CTO? You can always hire a freelance student or start a WordPress startup like Groupon did. Jumla to help you. Are you not talking seriously? Are you a serious entrepreneur yourself? Most of the hypotheses are tested with DruPal.
Pinterest was made by non-tech guys. Yes, they changed several development teams, but they knew what they were doing and in the end they won. As the project grows, those. You will need a director, but first you need to do more realistic things. You can't find a good programmer during the day with fire. Skilled guys work for large companies. Headhunters from IT giants are setting up surveillance and round-the-clock surveillance of the homes of specialist coders. As soon as programmers step outside their home, they are immediately seduced by multi-million dollar contracts. Recruiters shake puffy checkbooks in front of them and even show them pictures of yachts that will become the property of programmers after just three years at Google. So don't even dream. Look, the Silicon Valley forums are filled with sobs from founders who can't code. It gets to the point where founders with a design or economics background start learning Ruby or Python themselves. There is nothing to do. The best way out is the friendly guys from India. Take it inexpensively.
Such is the advice. Sounds reasonable. Looks logical, especially if you remember 8.1.

9. Work with or without rest
9.1. Work hard around the clock, otherwise you will achieve a result called "nothing." Bloomberg, who became a billionaire and mayor of New York, early in his career at a brokerage firm worked even during lunchtime, when everyone else went out to eat hot dogs and drink coffee. How many of his colleagues do you think became millionaires? That's right, only he is alone.
In the Y-combinator, it is recommended to close at home and not go outside in the first couple of months of work on the project. Don't go out at all. Order food at home and invite housekeepers. Of course, do it over the Internet.
Do you have a family or a girlfriend? The startup is prohibited from knowing these terms.
9.2. Strike a balance. Mandatory time for rest, family and friends is necessary - this will allow you to collect your thoughts and simply increase your work efficiency.
Do you know the story about the driven horse? Or about sharpening an ax. Two foresters argued who would cut down 10 larches faster. One rolled up his sleeves, and only the chips flew. And the second will chop, chop, and then sharpen the ax. So the second one won. It says a lot.
Not only will you be left without money in case of failure, you will also lose all your friends and family. Think about it. The moral support provided by the family cannot be overemphasized.

My dear friend @Sonam, Having come a long way in this campus together and eventually gradually getting to the end of the voting and commenting phase of this competition, I strongly believe that having taking the campus online training, read through the articles and taking into consideration inputs from fellow campus members as well as equipping ourselves with the necessary skills and knowledge from this campus, we are ready and perhaps most of us are already pitching our businesses and I think that it will be worthwhile sharing with you this article on how to pitch our businesses for possible investment.
It is much easier to talk to an investor if they understand what your company does. As a founder you will have to pitch your startup countless times. To be effective, your pitch has to be clear and concise.

In this post gotten from one of the articles in the campus, the pitch creation process has been condensed to answering seven questions. If you can answer all seven questions succinctly, you will be well ahead of the curve.

The Seven Questions

1. What do you do
Start with the name of your company and what it does. For example, Social cam is a mobile app that makes it easy to take videos and share them with friends and family. There is no need to set up the problem, you can just get to the point.
Too many people spend too much energy trying to make their idea sound impressive. It is ok to keep it simple. Actually, it is preferable. You want to explain what you do in the simplest language possible. This needs to be predigested. Your elevator pitch should be like baby food.

Your goal when answering this question should not be to have potential investors understand your whole business but rather make them interested enough to ask follow up questions.

2. How big is the market
There are two ways to get market size. If you are entering a pre existing space, like small business banking, you can research it. If you are creating a new product or space you can estimate the number of customers that would want your product and approximate how much you could charge them.

3. What is your progress
What investors will be trying to understand here is how fast you produce work. What is the ratio between what you have done and how long you have been working on it
They want to feel impressed with how much you have done in the period of time you have had to do it. This can apply to a company that is one week old or ten years old.

4. What is your unique insight
This is similar to What problem are you solving, but the bar is higher. What investors really want to understand is what you know about the problem that everyone else does not. This is usually derived from multiple conversations with customers, deep analysis of current products in the space, and often personal experience.

5. What is your business model
There are two types of startups, those that know how they will make money and those that have not figured it out yet. By and large, if you are in the second category you are going to either make money by growing big and turning on advertising or you are going to copy the predominant business model in your space. A small subset of companies in the second category will propose a new business model that makes sense given how your product changes the market.

6. Who is on your team
Potential investors are only interested in a few things, How many founders, Is there a technical cofounder, How long have they known each other, Is everyone working full time, What is the equity split among the founders, hopefully equal or close to equal

7. What do you want
There is no need to dance around the ask. If you want people to invest, ask. If you have a question, ask.
Make it easy for investors to help you. They really want to help you.
Once you have answers to each of the seven questions your challenge is to make the answers as clear as possible.

Conclusion
Investors are much more interested in progress than genius ideas. Most good ideas do not look like good ideas the first time you see them so your ability to show progress in your work and intellect in how you answer these questions are two very positive signals.

Dear, I hope this helps in you to peach your business as much as possible and get the necessary funding for your project.
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.

Dear campus [email protected], As we are gradually coming to the end of this competition, one important thing I want us to consider is that the organizers of this competition will appreciate if we forge ahead to execute and sustain our ideas with the necessary skills acquired from the trainings, others inputs and from campus articles; and that is whether we emerged as the eventual winners or not. In view of this and in addition to my other previous comments on your idea, I am sharing with you the 5 important Characteristics You Need to Sustain Your Startup as enlisted in one of the campus articles.

While most entrepreneurs will say that passion is at the very core of sustaining every new business. And although it could not be agree more that passion, motivation and will are one of the most pivotal characteristics for keeping a business alive, beginner entrepreneurs should have additional 5 significant characteristics in order to get a startup company on its feet and sustain it.

Abundant Patience
In the early stages of your business, it is highly unlikely that everyone is going to know what you are doing and be very open and supportive of it. With a little bit of luck your business idea is going to reach fame in no time, however, most of the time, you have to become friends with time that is passing by. Patience is key to sustaining your startup. Take some time to stop and smell the roses. Just because your company is not evolving at the speed of lightening does not mean it is failing.
If you are trying to build a brand that is going to provide solutions to people everyday problems, and you are trying to implement this solution into their lives, you have to accept the fact that it will take some time. Your future fans and clients will probably take a while to embrace your new company, and in order to stand the test of time, you are going to need a lot of patience.

Precise Focus
While it is important to remain focused on your business goals and work on pushing your startup in the front rows of the industry, you should be focused primarily on customers. In other words, become customer obsessed. By all means, do not become so obsessed that you will go about changing your brand and doing whatever it takes to please every single person. Stick to your vision, but keep your followers and clients in mind at all times. How do they feel about your brand? How can your unique vision help their lives?

Persuasive Communication Skills
The truth is that communication can either make or break your business, in several different ways. You may have a supervision, an authentic idea, and a business model that is going to hold up no matter what, but if you are not a good communicator as an entrepreneur and do not know how to portray your company to others nobody is going to want to hear about your startup. You need to be able to practice communication and do it on the regular. Whether it is inside of your company, communicating with your employee or partner, or outside of the company, pitching your ideas to third parties, you are going to have to learn to use words to get into people minds.

Envisioning
Now, you might be thinking, who starts a company without having a vision? Most entrepreneurs have some kind of a vision, but we are talking about the kind that is going to push you through the hardest of times because you can see so far, there is no stopping until you get there. In order to sustain a startup, you need to have a vision, not just for the present or close future, but for the next 20 years. Once you reach your first set milestone, you should not just sit around and wait to see where the road will take you. Your vision should be your guide throughout the entire process, and once you reach each milestone you are going to find it all familiar because you have envisioned it from the very beginning.

Cautious Management
No matter what you start off with, pennies or millions, you should be very careful when it comes to your assets. Startups are a gamble to a certain degree, but great leaders know how to spend and when to invest their money. They do not waste a dime, and they know when they should invest millions when necessary. Get educated when it comes to finances and startups in order to avoid making bad financial decisions that will drive your business to the ground.
We consider these five characteristics predictors of future success. They might not always determine the outcome of your startup because there are various other factors to take into consideration, that might influence the sustainability of your business, and that might not always be in your control. But, these five traits are important to have in order to control the situations and aspects of your business that should not be left up to fate.

Dear friend, I hope you will derive some benefits from this. 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/

Best of luck in your implementation.

As we were working on our website and our mask packaging design, we discovered a few tools that we thought were worth sharing with you:)

Canva and Visme help users develop infographics and promotional materials with a professional feel. Providing pre-existing templates and generating color combination ideas, they helped us save time in designing our promotional materials. We also found platforms called Wix and Strikingly, which help people without developer experience build mobile optimized websites. Though we do have a team member experienced in CS web design, using this allowed all team members (even without CS experience) contribute their insight to the final website design.

If you have time, we would really appreciate it if you could comment on our project entry at entrepreneurship-campus.org/ideas/28/18345/

Keep up the great work!

Dear fellow entrepreneur,

As we are entering the last month of this competition, I want to share with you several things that I learned throughout this whole journey. I figured out that PURPOSE is the only thing that drives a business. When the purpose is gone, that's when growth stops. So I want to encourage all of us to go back to the basics. Ask ourselves, what drives us to start this innovation? What is our deepest desire? And why we want to do it?

I hope that this piece of advice can help you as well in your journey, and wishing the best of luck for you.

PS: We are still looking for some comment and feedback for our project. Perhaps, you could drop by and share your thoughts? As we only have limited voting time a day, We'll make sure we vote one more time for your project if you drop a comment :)

Hello dear Campus member, Greetings from Nigeria.
Happy to meet you through this competition!!! and I have learnt many things by going through your idea.
The efforts you have taken to bring up this idea is stupendous and inspiring many budding entrepreneurs like me. We are competitors just for the sake of this competition, but on a broader picture we all are the future reformers and businessmen/ businesswomen. We shall be proud of ourselves as we are not selfish to think only about money earning, instead we integrate the talent with a Sustainable development goals and
that is really commendable and a rarity in this generation.
As a way of supporting your business idea / project I will like to give you (2) advice! The first one is!
One of the most painful and common mistakes I see many first time entrepreneurs make which I will like you to avoid is that; they fall in love with their own business idea.
They/ll spend months building what they believe to be the next innovative,disruptive, game - changing start-up. Then they launch... and nobody buys, nobody cares, nothing happens.
My dear fellow campus member, do not make the above mistake.
Don/t fall in love with your business idea. Instead, fall in love with the problem you/re trying to solve for your clients, and validate your business idea early on that it is problem worth solving.
And secondly there/s also another incredibly painful mistake I see new entrepreneurs make. It/s painful because it keeps them from success. They feel like they/re working hard, but not making any Progress. The mistake? Trying to do too many Things at once.
If there are 9 Rabbits on the ground, if you want to catch one, just focus on one.
"Focus on just one project and strategy at a time, you/re more likely to succeed".
Wishing you all the best in your entrepreneurial endeavours.
Stay healthy and happy....

It is easy to say that you should avoid the middleman, but a conventional business cannot bypass the wholesaler. It simply does not make any sense economically. If you want to offer a wide selection, you must keep each variety in stock.

Building a thriving community
Today we engaged a campaign on underage drinking 'tap a beer from your tablet' it reached more than 40 likes and about 15 bar tenders and 5 retail shops were reached with UN global SDGs awareness of responsible drinking to sustainable development at my local area.

We mobile tap bartending cart are committed to ensuring the responsible enjoyment of alcohol,like many others, we know this product can be misused hence our strategic initiatives to promote responsible drinking in our community at local slums as this will allow us to gain important insights and to positively impact more people with our idea project and campaigns on responsible use of alcohol.
By the way we wish to ask for your support and take this initiative to the next level and build thriving communities!

You have got to be crazy if you want to be an entrepreneur: you will have to work twelve to fifteen hours a day, there will be no vacations in the near future, and you will have little or no private life anymore.

I hope you are doing well. I just want to tell you that every great dream begins with a dreamer.

With the pandemic hindering in-person collaboration, we wanted to share some resources that personally helped our team in working together remotely. Notion is a task-productivity tool that helps you organize tasks as a team and prioritize them by their level of importance. We found this incredibly useful in coordinating tasks and scheduling meetings! We also found the online whiteboard collaboration platforms Miro and Awwapp helpful as well, since they help users brainstorm ideas in a highly visual and customizable manner. Hopefully, this helps!

If you have time, we would really appreciate it if you could comment on our project entry at entrepreneurship-campus.org/ideas/28/18345/

Keep up the great work!

Dear fellow campus member,

I find your project highly innovative and needed in such a time as this, and I thought to stop by and check on your progress thus far and must say congratulations for your efforts so far.

We all need to put in more efforts to achieve our dreams. So I just wanted to say that you keep up and be encouraged to do more.

Entrepreneurs make good use of opportunities to create new businesses and turn them into gains.
So they offer new and slightly different things. Such entrepreneurial spirit strongly contributes to the modernization of our economy.
Every year we see new products and technology.
All these products and technology aim to satisfy human needs in a suitable and beautiful way. Your idea is great. It takes just one idea/project to transform the world. As you keep working hard towards your dreams and to add your quota in the improvement of the world, I wish you the very best. Thank you very much for implementing this wonderful idea.

And let\s I forgot, I wanna use this medium to appreciate your immense contribution to the campus and to my idea in particular, I request your continuous support.

So finally before I go I would like to ask you.
How Do You Manage Risk
And Uncertainty In Business?

Suppose you about to launch a new product into the market and your initial survey indicated a 70 percent probability of achieving your desired market share. You conducted another survey and the results indicated only a 55 percent probability. Will you proceed with your initial market entry strategy? Call off the launch? Or Conduct the third survey?

I\m Inviting you to Contact me, on my page to learn strategies for managing risk and uncertainty in today/s business world. Will be expecting to hear from you soon.

Thank you!

I was wondering if i could shape this passion, initiative to objectetively engage in participation of rapid growth entreprises
Just so I wanted in solid fire,

I was wondering if the strange combustion of my idea project/days will bring consumer awareness in consumption and healthy lifestyles,

The tension of the world inside of me,
with a vision of working for a common goal sustainable bartending cart development,

I was wondering if I could stand as tall,
for our new generations from a common ground of sustainable development and consumption incorperated into our youths and communities,

While the tide of the sea rose and fell,
setting a global mentality harmonising nature and society,

If the sky would recede as i went,and the earth would emerge as i come on one mission of sustainable world and ultimate goal of well healthy responsible drinking community
To the door of the morning, locked against the sun.

I was wondering if i could find myself,all that i am in all that i could utter if you vote for [email protected]https://www.entrepreneurship-campus.org/ideas/26/18538

Hello, it is great to know that you are aiming to achieve SDG 3 Good Health and Wellbeing as well! Especially in times of COVID-19, it is critical for us to take initiative to strengthen the medical resources available to our community. We wanted to suggest a few tools to you, since we found them extremely helpful for remote collaboration. Basecamp is a virtual collaboration tool that helps you communicate with your team members about different tasks, while Notion is really useful when it comes to team-task prioritization.

Like you, we are passionate about helping improve the health of our community. As a team, we are currently producing and distributing masks to people in high risk groups for COVID-19. We would really appreciate it if you could give us feedback by commenting on our project entry at entrepreneurship-campus.org/ideas/28/18345/

Thank you!
Angela, Miru, and Sarah

You have a real good concept here, consider who you want to reach with your product and what you want the client to do with the product. A to B. Then from there consider how you make the same client come back again and you have a small business.

Perhaps position yourself as a middleman in a ready established industry providing something people require often and remain a small business with a large client base so you can provide a great service and product.

Please do comment under my idea maybe we can advertise for you one day at a reasonable rate.

My dear [email protected], 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, Understand 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.

My [email protected], 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

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!

I wish to elaborate on my previous comment debate on what inspires you to be an entrepreneur?
Because entrepreneurial motivations is a necessary step of getting one to become an entrepreneur.this acts as a driving force within us influencing us to act in the ways we do,allow me to ask thisl question again in a different point of view please,
can emotions be a motivation inspiringly tool to any entrepreneur?
I propose this as important to any man understanding his/her emotional aspect of the reasons as to why and what he or she wants to be or do in life as the first tool,then from that stage of maturity he will e able to differentiate between the purpose and meaning of life and create a personal vision statement with goals strategies and be able to achieve it internaly from emotional aspects as this inspirational driving force will energize and motivate to lighting the bulb of any mans inspiration and aspiring to be an entrepreneur,after connecting their convictions and emotions.This ability will help us to have value recognition based on what we have learnt from circumstances or situations that we face understanding our goals in consideration to living each day as though we have all the power and influence necessary to make this a better world listening and serving others,also enhancing us to learn new ideas and gain different perspectives in striving to gain mastery over our lifes challenges by increasing the circle of influencing others too who wishes to follow or lead us,also it will alow the use of private victories unselfishly with emotions of trying to create value for others and make a difference in this world.

I hope this was helpful and wish you all the best!

It is awesome idea. I never thought that eggshells are functional. I only thought eggshells are waste and have never thought it could be useful. It is interesting and all the best for your idea.

Tshering wangmo

August 27, 2020 08:55

This is an amazing idea. Until now I could only think of eating the egg and throwing the shells into the bin. But by going through your idea it seems really interesting and a sustainable ways of reusing the unwanted eggshell for good purpose. I wish you all the best and I hope this idea becomes a success.

Kuenzang

August 27, 2020 02:49

Interesting and insightful. This is the first time I came to learn about the wide range of benefits associated with egg shell and its membrane. Hope your plan comes to fruition. Best wishes.

August 25, 2020 11:08

I would like to thank everyone who has posted positive comments on my idea.. and I must say that I am very much motivated by your comments .. and I am looking forward to enhance my idea to a better level and I would like all of your beautiful ideas to rock well

August 24, 2020 21:21

Dear @Soup of eggshell. 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 voting others ideas or projects and not even voting our own ideas or perhaps not visiting the platform in months and it looks as if our ideas or projects are just there looking for us to attend to them; why, because this is an institution and not just a competition. 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 read and get motivated.

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 ahead

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.

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 you is to develop a business model in which the customer is as close to the beneficiary as possible

[email protected] Soup of eggshells, your idea is impressive. In addition to my other comments on your idea, 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 are important.

When you vote and comment, you support innovation and change. The selected ideas and projects have been selected by taking into account many criteria, among them the innovation and the change that an idea can bring to a community or country. This is very crucial for the development of poor communities and we believe change comes from youth, so if you consider any idea to be innovative, do not hesitate to VOTE for it. You can become part of change, indirectly.

When you vote and comment, you support a dream-This competition is about dreamers and young ambitious people who think they can change the world by first bringing change to their communities. Many of the accepted ideas or projects are now very important to the people who submitted them and they are hoping to get our VOTE and COMMENTS. Just a single Vote AND Comment can motivate each of us further to start implementing the ideas or projects even if they do not make it to the finals.

When you vote and comment, you give value to the world-Only people of value are able to give value to others and the world. As Einstein said once: Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value. By voting and commenting the most valuable ideas or projects you are adding value and contributing to the future of many people, although this might seem very utopic at the beginning.

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.

Guten Tag to You

Today being funfzhen August, I want you consider the following questions before the main one below

Are you unconventional?
Did you really know what motivate you?
Or to be an entrepreneur?
If yes, move ahead of others questions below

Did you know that Social entrepreneurship is as important for the development of societies as entrepreneurship is for the development of the economy? ROGER MARTIN SALLY OSBURG

Page 128

Did you know The World Needs Entrepreneurs in German society, but really everywhere, there are many creative people who have good ideas they had like to implement, and who perhaps are already doing so with great commitment in political parties, associations, clubs or as volunteer? But they scarcely ever think that they could also pursue such activities in the form of entrepreneurship, with financial goals for themselves.

Page 133

The destination of humanity is the education of the individual into a harmonious work of art, a personality developed in all its talents, with a positive perspective on all aspects of the world WILHELM v HUMBOLDT

Page 136

Did you know The Austrian economist Joseph Schumpeter 1883 1950, who taught at Oxford, Cambridge and Harvard universities was the first to have presented the figure of the businessman as a key element of economic life?

Page 137

Did you know when in 1784 the German philosopher Immanuel Kant answered the question, What is Enlightenment? He gave a definition that related not only to mans political emancipation, but also to his economic self liberation. According to the philosopher, Enlightenment is mans emergence from his self imposed immaturity?

Page 139

Did you know Most of the time, the customary is even more inhibiting than the repressive? ERNST BLOCH

Page 143

Did you know the development of an entrepreneurial idea is, above all, a creative process. Its engineering is comparable to an artistic creative act? KARL VESPER

Page 148

Did you know Economics is something much too important for us to leave it to the economists? Please share this to all members and contestants 2020 at your commenting phase

Based on some concrete facts that Everyone is or can become an entrepreneur, there was an amazing interview with Professor Guenter Faltin German and Professor Muhammad Yunus Bangladesh.

Faltin What about the educational system. Usually we believe that the educational system has to equip people with the aforementioned capabilities and talents.

Yunus Not only education I would say, rather appropriate education. Some education can give you a wrong mindset. Education can train and prepare yourself to work for somebody. That is not a good education as regards entrepreneurship. Education should aim at telling the following message to the people you could do things on your own. But if you want as an option to work for somebody else, that is OK, too. You can do it yourself, you have the capability. Education should also encourage you to think and find your own talents instead of only preparing you for the necessary steps to have a little job in a company. One should not be prevented from finding out that one could have done something completely different. Education has to be at open ends so that you are aware of your opportunities. Information technology is very important in that regard as well. You have to be able to explore your own thing instead of only following what is in your textbooks and not what is beyond your textbooks. Information technology does not have a textbook so you have to design your own textbook, what you want to know about yourself, the world, what kind of thing you want to do yourself. Indeed, information technology today comes as a very powerful instrument to discover yourself.

Page 159

Faltin All the time we are busy in turning ourselves into entrepreneurs. What is your advice to us? Where should we start in order to become entrepreneurs in the Western culture?

Yunus The starting point is only at the personal level and creating institutions, educational opportunities and websites, which can be contacted by the individual people to raise questions such as What am I doing here? I could have done this, I could have done that. Why do not we explore this one a little bit more? It is about creating individuals to be themselves, discover themselves and explore themselves. That spirit of exploring oneself is the most important act. Of all the things we can do to help becoming entrepreneurs, this is the best thing we can all do.

Did you know that according to Leonardo da Vinci wherein the ultimate accomplishment lies?

Did you know that the answer is in simplicity? Check the wonderful and amazing book titled Brains beat Capital thanks bye.

Wonderful [email protected] of eggshell(hen). Your idea using eggshell to serve as a healing balm to wounds is commendable. However, to help you open up your idea for further refining, I suggest that while your idea is still in your heart, you should consider the following:

Working with your ministry of health for the approval of your idea to avoid issues in the future
Implement a market survey to understand the acceptability of of your product
Consider how you will make money with the implementation of your idea
Consider who will implement your idea with you interms of partners and collaborators
What tools or processes will be involve in the implementation of 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.

Finally, I have voted and commented on your idea; please consider supporting my idea with your votes and comments
