The SociaList

Published on July 6, 2020 um 14:46

Explain your idea in details:

"Where social purpose is business" is what drives the idea of The SociaList. As a consumer, I have always searched for an accessible online platform where I can purchase goods, products, and/or services that are sustainably-sourced. By creating an online space where social entrepreneurs can market their goods, products, and/or services, we help bolster conscious and responsible consumerism in the world today. World-renowned brand consultant and thought leader Simon Mainwaring, in his bestselling book titled "We First: How Brands & Consumers Use Social Media to Build a Better World," says that most people nowadays, given every opportunity, would want to become part of something valuable and meaningful. The SociaList will enable this emergent consciousness to grow even more. Social entrepreneurship needs a solid ground to anchor on, which The SociaList can provide. Once put into operation, this proposed online platform is expected to connect social enterpreneurs with prospective clients from different parts of the world, not only to do business, but also to interact and exchange ideas, insights, and perspectives. Arranged and mapped geographically, prospective clients will have knowledge of social enterprises near them, which they can support through purchase of their goods, products, and/or services. Consequently, this mapping can provide concerned public & private institutions with spatial distribution data of social enterprises in a particular region, province, or locality, which they can use in determining who, what, and where to allocate funding opportunities to encourage more people to start their own social enterprise. Moreover, what makes The SociaList innovative is that it is pegged to be the 'Facebook' of parties interested and involved in social entrepreneurship. It is a network that aims to launch, promote, and support collaborations, knowledge-transfer, capacity-building, and collective action. The SociaList, above all, is a platform where purpose drives purchase and profit.

Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development

Sustainability, as defined by the UN World Commission on Environment & Development, is "development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs." The SociaList, as a proposed platform for social entrepreneurship, promotes responsible consumption by encouraging people the world over to support sustainably-sourced goods, products, and services. By purchasing more goods, products, and/or services that are sustainably-sourced, we are making a collective stand against the consumerist ideology that continues to contribute to our myriad problems today. By empowering social enterprises through The SociaList, we are redefining, rethinking, and reshaping how goods, products, and services are conceptualized, manufactured, and delivered. As more and more business leaders realize how devastating business goals have become and indifferent to the needs of the world, a new business mantra, which gives considerable attention and importance to purpose and sustainability more than profit and immediate economic gains, is gaining ground in corporate circles. This is evidence-based and needs both institutional and popular support if we truly desire to revolutionize consumerism. Moreover, climate change and global warming are problems that pose a serious threat to our planet's capacity to sustain itself. Globalization as a major driving force in today's world should embrace a consumerist ideology that does not wreak havoc on our already vulnerable ecosystems. As we enter a new decade in the 21st century, we must not only visualize a future that is safe, equitable, and peaceful, but we must work on its foundations more aggressively now. The SociaList is poised to help realize two of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals --Responsible Consumption & Production and Partnership for the Goals. This proposed platform will aid in steering the world towards a sustainable future. This is where we meet to engage in purposeful business.

Plans for implementation and sustainability

The SociaList is an idea offered for implementation by others. As its proponent, I envision this online platform to be global in scope in the future. But the idea needs to take off somewhere. The Philippines could provide a good venue for launching as the country is home to many notable social enterprises. Moreover, according to Jeff Pilisuk of the Miller Center for Social Entrepreneurship, social enterprises are gaining ground in the country with an estimate of 4.7 million beneficiaries every year (2019). On this note, a comprehensive proposal that expounds on the benefits of an online platform that consolidates social enterprises will be made to get the support and backing of the Philippine national government. Funding can be sourced through its Trade & Industry, Science & Technology, and Information & Communications Technology departments. Partnerships with relevant public and private institutions will also be explored. Established social enterprises will be invited to grace The SociaList. Emerging ones will be encouraged to sign up, too. Consumers in search of an online platform to shop for sustainably-sourced good, products, and/or services will now have a 'place' to go to. Moreover, purchases will be incentivized to encourage consumers to patronize The SociaList. Consumers may earn points depending on the total amount of their purchase transactions. They can use these earned points either to support certain causes/advocacies that will also be advertised on the platform or use them as money for their next purchase. The SociaList will also feature video presentations, tutorials, blog posts on social entrepreneurship, which members can learn from.

Your profile

I am Arnold "Arnie" Rosales Lapuz of the Philippines, a 32-year old social science teacher at Philippine Science High School - Main Campus. I graduated from the University of the Philippines - Diliman with a bachelor's degree in Philippine Studies and where I am also finishing graduate school in the same field. Social entrepreneurship is something that I would like to explore and pursue in the future. But, for the meantime, I just make it a point to buy more goods, products, and services that are sustainably-sourced. This way I am able to show my sincerest support for enterprises that continue to redefine business in the 21st century and promote responsible consumption & production. However, what I find missing is an online platform that brings together existing social enterprises for easy access and engagement, thus my idea. The SociaList aims to be that online platform one visits to do mindful, conscious, responsible, and purposeful shopping. To be launched in the Philippines, this proposed online platform is also envisioned to expand globally in the future. Social enterprises need a home and that is what The SociaList aims to provide. Moreover, through The SociaList, we are able to register our voices as powerful agents of change and empower our ideas in the hopes of transforming lifestyles for a more sustainable future.

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

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

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

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

9.3 Social Entrepreneurship

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

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

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

The Idea of Building with Bottles

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

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

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

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

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

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

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!

Keep going and achieve your goals!

Best of lucks!

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.

@the socialist. Weldone on your wonderful idea. 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

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

Successful companies originate in the mind. The better an entrepreneurial concept is and the more it is

successful.
I want all to reflect on it
Day 24
Dorothee is the daughter of a colleague of mine. She was an English major but did not want to become a
teacher. In her free time she creates vases, large ceramic pieces. She asked me whether she could not
make a little business out of this. I asked her a whole series of questions. Did she really enjoy doing it?
Did she enjoy it so much that she could imagine doing it over the long term? Are people willing to buy
these vases with their own money? And much more. Dorothee explained that she really did enjoy
working on her ceramics. That there are people who are buying her vases already and that she is earning
money with them, even when she calculates all her expenses and her own work time. And that if she
wanted to, she could ask for more money.
This did not sound bad. In fact, it sounded very convincing. Dorothee would probably be happier with her
vases than she would be working as a teacher in a job she disliked. My advice do it. Do not let yourself
be dissuaded bet on your artistic talent.
I ran into her again a few months later. Curious, I ask her about her business. I am not suited to be a
business person, she tells me. How so? I ask, amazed. Dorothee explains that she took a course in
starting a business, but I failed the balance sheet analysis.
Balance sheet analysis is something valuable. Nobody who wants to understand the financial situation of
a major company like Siemens can skip the balance sheet analysis. But what Dorothee needed is not a
balance sheet analysis. What she needs to know is whether her work is generating enough income.
Every street kid in Manila, every woman in Bangladesh who gets a microcredit from the Grameen Bank,
has the business smarts for this, without formal business administration concepts and techniques. A
formal requirement just frightens people off, especially creative, artistically inclined people. The start-up
consultant would have given better advice if he had simple told Dorothee to collect the receipts for her
expenses and her income and take them to a bookkeeper, or to pay a student to do her income tax
return. With Dorothee, a promising business founder was derailed because of an incompetent startup
consultant.
I want all to reflect on it
Day 25
Getting rid of the fanciful ideas
And where was the campfire? Much too dangerous. The artistic performances? Could you do a somersault in your confirmation suit? Any fanciful ideas had been taken away from the children before they were even aware of it. The concept of the adventure restaurant was dead on arrival.
I want all to reflect on it
Day 26
An Example Making Toothbrushes Cheaper
Not far from Bonn is a factory that makes most of the toothbrushes sold in Germany. A number of well known brands have their toothbrushes made for them there. You, too, can have your toothbrushes manufactured there and sell them under your own name or under some other fancy name. Get together with your friends and acquaintances and start a Toothbrush Campaign. You know that toothbrushes should not be used too long otherwise they will damage your teeth, no matter how expensive or scientific their design. You yourself need at least ten toothbrushes a year. So your own circle of friends and acquaintances is sufficient for a small campaign. Why should your friends buy their toothbrushes from you? You can already figure it out. Not because you are attractive and likeable and can talk your friends into buying them from you, but because naturally your toothbrushes are much cheaper than the toothbrushes they are buying for themselves, even at the discount store. Materials and production cost almost nothing. Toothbrushes become expensive because of the advertising to develop the brand and sales.
I want all to reflect on it
Day 27
Once you have the concept, you go on to researching and identifying appropriate components. This, too, does not have to become a full time job. Do not be satisfied with the first supplier to come along, just because you are happy to have found a component. Inquire, research, investigate, compare. Finally, you are ready to coordinate the components. This, too, is a manageable task where concepts are simple and straightforward.
Under these conditions illustrated in the examples described above founding a company can actually be a kind of part-time job. Launching a company with a safety net, so to speak. Do not give up your day job, your old occupation, until your own idea concept proves to be sound and sustainable. Wait for your concept to prove itself. Do not put all your money on one card, but establish your business on a carefully considered and securely solid basis. It is not true that the fast devour the slow in every situation, but those who are well prepared and work with professional partners will succeed over those who are excitable, overworked and try to organize everything in house.
I want all to reflect on it
Today, I motivate you to make use of my comment and also share with others in the platform so as to learn and improve your idea and project for successful startups and SDGs realization. I share it freely with others ideas and projects so as to join all in achieving our 2020 target in our entrepreneur campus.

Mabuhay, Entrepreneurship Campus! Good day! Let me share with you my reply to a fellow Filipino's comment on my idea dated July 21:

Hi, Anica! Good day! Thank you for your positive review of The SociaList! I agree with you when you said that we should support social entrepreneurs as they provide us with new business models. Indeed, by reorienting businesses on their important role in securing a sustainable future, we are doing Mother Earth a favor. This is what The SociaList seeks to provide a platform for and advance. Moreover, with bountiful natural resources and people whose work ethic is one of the world's best, our country, the Philippines, should lead the world in sustainable consumption and production. With all these resources comes a plenitude of opportunities to exhaust to develop the economy through various industries. However, the national government should ensure that our use of these resources are properly managed, compliant with the strictest industry standards, and sustainable. The SociaList, on this aspect, will be very helpful. After all, my idea, if put into operation, is "where social purpose is business." Also, during this covid-19 pandemic, the idea that entrepreneurship should be made to address our pressing issues is very compatible with The SociaList. It is during these times when the social good needs to be multiplied. Profit remains important, but no longer the sole determinant of business success. With this health crisis making us all rethink our ways of dealing with the world, I believe that social entrepreneurship will gain ground in the new normal. The SociaList, becoming a reality, will amplify this.

Hello there again! Just like before I would like to share with you my reply to Blossom Odor's comment on my idea dated July 21:

Hi, Blossom! Greetings from the Philippines! Thank you for encouraging me to take more courses available in the Entrepreneurship Campus. I am currently fixing my schedule to accommodate more courses here. Thank you for going the extra mile by jotting down here both the questions and points I, as an aspiring social entrepreneur, should consider if I want my idea to take off and be successful. On this note, I am seriously looking forward to more engagements here in the Entrepreneurship Campus! Kudos to you! I wish all ideas and projects here the best for we all are doing this to build a more sustainable now and tomorrow!

July 27, 2020 19:27

Hello there again, guys! I would like to share with you my reply to Comfort Odor's comment on my idea dated July 20:

Hi, Comfort! Greetings from the Philippines! Thank you for jotting down all those questions again. I agree that those questions are, indeed, very important in coming up with a well-thought out idea or project for this competition. I have asked those same questions to myself months ago when I was drafting my proposal. Moreover, the short course we took here in Campus was really helpful in knowing what you want to do and what inspires you. I am happy that every now and then I am asked a question that I must answer. With that, I am able to get to know my idea more. With questions asked, I am compelled to do additional research to see for myself what needs to be done. My positive reception to all these queties rests is to bolster the chances of The SociaList as an idea worthy of worldwide attention, support, and promotion. Again, thank you, Comfort, for reminding me to be more reflective on this journey we share together for a sustainable future.

Hi, guys! I would like to share with you my reply to Cyril Suh's comment on my idea dated July 20:

Hello there again, Cyril Suh! Greetings from the Philippines! I think what The SociaList can do to attract consumers is to incentivize their purchases and make this incentivization really competitive. If possible, we make it at par with existing incentivization mechanisms in the market. Moreover, another thing comes to mind, which I think is equally important, too -- the notion that if you tell people that if they purchase this good, product, or service they are promoting a social good, they are highly likely to support it. The SociaList wants to 'capitalize' on that so that goods, products, and services that are sustainably-sourced will be have a market advantage. Again, thank you for your nice words about The SociaList. Your points are noted and will be considered once the idea proceeds to the next stage!

July 25, 2020 23:56

Hello,

This is a good an meaningful idea! Keep going with the sustainability! The SociaList can help the society! Don't give up Arnold Lapuz!
Best regards!

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. I share it freely with others ideas and projects so as to join all in achieving our 2020 target in our entrepreneur campus.

I urge everyone today to freely and blissfully cast their votes and comments to my idea and project Electricity for Everyone and this is a link to my idea https www entrepreneurship campus org ideas 28 17040

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.

I want all to reflect on it

Today, I motivate you to make use of my comment and also share with others in the platform so as to learn and improve your idea and project for successful startups and SDGs realization. I share it freely with others ideas and projects so as to join all in achieving our 2020 target in our entrepreneur campus.

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.
STEVE WOZNIAK

I want all to reflect on it

Today, I motivate you to make use of my comment and also share with others in the platform so as to learn and improve your idea and project for successful startups and SDGs realization.

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.

Campus members please check page 42 of Brains versus Capital book and apply it in improving your idea and project.

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.

Campus members please check page 47 to 48 of Brains versus Capital book and apply it in improving your idea and project.

Day 19

Campus members did you know in 5.3 Where startup consultants fail the example of
Dorothee the artist

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.
53
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.

Campus members please check page 52 to 53 of Brains versus Capital book and apply it in improving your idea and project.

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.

Campus members please check page 72 of Brains versus Capital book and apply it in improving your idea and project.

Day 21

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.

Campus members please check page 74 of Brains versus Capital book and apply it in improving your idea and project.

My Co contestants CEC 2020, I blissfully want you to support your idea and project through sharing your innate experiences, and exchanging of best practice and well conceived idea at the entrepreneurial laboratory down to one to many so as to motivates you in learning and improving your own idea and project.

July 21, 2020 20:16

Hello to the creator of SociaList Mr. Arnold Lapuz! First and foremost I would like to congratulate you on a brilliant idea on Social entrepreneurship. This idea of platform would be a huge help in empowering social enterprises and promoting responsible consumption for the Filipino people. Not all know about Social Entrepreneurship. If only all Filipino people are educated enough about this, I guess the Philippine economy would be fast-paced as the other first world countries knowing that our country is rich in natural resources not to mention has its citizens who are bright and talented.

In this today\'s pandemic, I guess SocialList should also focus on helping social entrepreneurs overcomes the impacts of COVID 19. In this current situation, the whole world is facing a great recession including the Philippines but nevertheless we are known as a survivor and easily adapt to change. Whether we like it or not business culture has shifted in a span of months in the \"new normal\'. Hence, Social entrepreneurs are needed to develop new models for a new century. Turn social problems into opportunities and establish a viable social enterprise to initiate change.

July 21, 2020 11:45

@Socialist, your idea developing a platform where people can buy different products online is innovative.In addition to your solution, 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.
What angel investors wants is not quite different from the youth citizen entrepreneurship competition application requirement. Please I suggest that you take a careful thought and 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 as these trainings are to help campus members navigate through the entrepreneurship journey.
Best wishes in your implementation

July 20, 2020 15:11

@Socialist your idea of helping people market their products online is remarkable. I am sharing with you questions from one of our trainings that can help in refining our ideas and projects

Before you submit your idea or project, please write down your idea in a Word Document and ask yourself these questions:
What business model will I follow to implement this idea?
What methodology or strategy will I use during different processes of implementing this idea?
Which are the processes I have to go through until the finalization of the idea?
What means or tools do I need to implement my idea?
Which are my potential collaborators, investors?

July 20, 2020 14:12

Hi Arnold Lapuz,my apologies for my late reply. I am grateful for your comment and appreciation on my idea, thanks for voting my idea. I have read through your idea and it is impressive,I think your idea is very useful and should be implemented. But what difference will you make to gain attraction to the socialist, for there are several other platforms that are already in the current highly competitive online market. I suggest you think about that. I will vote for your idea. Best wishes for the Specialist.

July 18, 2020 19:52

Hi, Sir Edsel! Thank you for voting for my idea! That means a lot to me now that we're in the second week of voting! I am happy that you appreciate what my idea communicates. I really do hope that The SociaList takes off and is supported by our fellow Filipinos once it becomes operational. I also do hope that the moment our lives have gone back to normal, we realize how we can help effect more positive change in the society especially when it comes to how we do business and what and why we purchase.

July 18, 2020 19:30

Hi, Comfort! Greetings from the Philippines! My apologies for my late reply regarding your queries. For your first question, The SociaList aims to provide many functions. It would be an online marketplace for sustainably-sourced good, products, and services. It would also be a venue for established social enterprises to come into contact with emerging ones and vice versa. It would also host fundraising activities for certain social causes. It would also provide members with access to tutorial videos, blogs, and instructional materials about social entrepreneurship, etc. For your second question, I think that I would be able to make the idea fun at work by telling people that purchases are incentivized and that what they do on the platform is for the betterment of society. Moreover, by making people realize that their support for The SociaList will multiply the social good could actually make a difference in how they perceive and relate to it as an online platform. For your third question, yes there are existing platforms but The SociaList aims to consolidate the best efforts to give social entrepreneurship a much more powerful voice in the world today. Lastly, for your fourth and final question, safety of goods, products, and services will have to be continuously and rigorously checked by quality inspectors that The SociaList will have to employ if put into operation. The SociaList, as I see it, should uphold the highest possible standards especially for our consumers.

Thank you very much for bothering to ask all those questions! They are noted and will be considered once the idea proceeds to the next stage.

Edsel Basilla

July 18, 2020 16:11

I vote for this entry, "the SociaList" by MR. Arnold Lapuz, because I think it would be an ideal program. As he mentioned, "social purpose is business", empowering consumers through the social benefit of entrepreneurship. As discussed in the rationale of the program, it will consumers to help projects needing funding-as points ("equivalent to money) will be given to business enterprises promoting equity, sustainable progress and the likes.

As a teacher myself, I will support this project of Mr. Lapuz and maybe create my own" SociaList" for my students and our community.

July 18, 2020 15:44

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.

This comment is a reply to Sherina's query on my page. First if all, greetings from the Philippines! Thank you for your encouraging words for The SociaList, Sherina! I really do hope that the idea is realized in the future. As regards your question on how I can make sure that the public is hooked with it, I think that will depend on how I will publicize the benefits of The SociaList. As I have mentioned in the details of my idea, more and more people in many parts of the world are becoming interested in the thought that their actions can produce a social good. On that note, through purchase of sustainably-sourced goods, products, and services, we all are able to affect positively the world we live in. This thought, through a well-thought out campaign, can actually make people start to like what The SociaList, as an online platform, represents and what it can offer. One of these days, I will be dropping by your page to read your idea, comment on it, and vote for it! All the best with DigiFood! Terima kasih!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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, Can the Tea Campaigns success be explained solely by its specific circumstance? Led by a university professor! Are not professors, ensconced in their ivory towers, known to be impractical? Was the emerging environmental consciousness of those early years a critical factor? Or did help for the Third World play a central role?

I do not think so. It is true that these factors did attract attention at the beginning, but nowadays the
media spotlight fades all too quickly. We cannot and do not wish to compete with so called modern
marketing with its brilliant images and fascinating flair. The idea of helping the Third World certainly
brought us sympathy, but at the same time it came with a heavy downside.

Did you know this is how the main factor fades into the background?

Campus members please check page 14 of Brains versus Capital book and apply it in improving your idea and project.

Campus members did you know that now you may be thinking?

Yes, all of that will work with a simple product like tea. However, the Tea
Campaigns inherent principle Function, not Convention is very useful when it comes to developing
new concepts, because it calls conventions into question, radically and without any unwarranted
respect. For me it was never about tea. I wanted to show that almost everyone is capable of developing
an entrepreneurial concept, using his or her everyday knowledge by transferring simple, well known
principles to a new area.

Hi, Blossom Odor! Greetings from the Philippines! Thank you very much for your insights! Yes, there are several renowned platforms already available, but The SociaList seeks to combine both the online marketplace concept (for goods, products, and services that are sustainably-sourced) and network for social entrepreneurs (especially those who are emerging) and consumers to interact and exchange of valuable insights for social entrepreneurship to grow. Moreover, I must say that the main selling point of The SociaList is that purchases will be incentivized! You earn points which can be converted into e-money for future purchase or for supporting certain advocacies that will be advertised on the platform. As regards technological capability and internet connectivity, these two, for The SociaList to be able to 'penetrate' more areas, will be considered seriously. The SociaList being an online platform relies on technological skills and infrastructures. These will be part of the capacity-building efforts that I, and those who will take part in making The SociaList a reality, will have to strongly push forward and advance. On another note, I will read your idea, Blossom, and comment and vote for it. God bless us all!

Excellent innovative idea Socialist. Online purchase has over time proved to be very efficient and following COVID 19, we cannot help but require the buying and purchase through online platforms. However, i will like to put forward to you some questions to help you refine your idea better
1. how many fuctions will this idea serve
2. How do you intend to make the idea fun at work
3. As you know there are already existing platforms, how do you hope to create a difference for you to have attraction needed
4. How will you convince and persuade your customers of the safety of their goods.

Please consider how you can build in these issues in your solution.
Weldone and best of luck in your implementation

After reading your explanation about SociaList, I think if it is applied later, it will be a great breakthrough. This is clearly seen from how you are able to project the impact later on so specifically and deeply. However, my question is, in what way do you hook the public? I want to know, hopefully I can learn too from you, because my idea right now is also about digital platforms in making transactions.

Interesting idea the socialist. Many people around the world think and look for places to buy and sell their products. and i think the socialist will bridge this gap. However, there are several other renown platforms that are already in the market, what will you do different to gain attraction to the socialist? Also, many of the producers are consumers reside in the rural communities sometimes without internet facilities and other technologies, How does the socialist plan to include these set of persons in the purchase and consumption services it offers. I suggest you take note of these two points and include them in your solution if necessary. Best wishes in your implementation

Hi, Mikhail Ganzon! Thank you for your question. It, indeed, is a challenge to reorient more people in the Philippines to start patronizing social enterprises. What I am hopeful about though is the estimate (according to Jeff Pilisuk of the Miller Center for Social Entrepreneurship that it is gaining ground in the country. On this note, I believe that if social enterprises will just be given a platform to amplify their businesses it would start to interest people. In this time and age, notes Simon Mainwaring, more and more people desire to be part of something valuable and meaningful. By our conscious purchases we are able to influence today's businesses to start minding how to do their business.

July 7, 2020 05:20

Thank you, Justine and Celver, for your encouraging words! Indeed, The SociaList aims to be a platform for social enterprises to be just one click away. Moreover, by establishing a platform to showcase the wonders of social entrepreneurship, we are able to empower purposeful and mindful businesses. These game changers are what we need in today's world. We have a lot of problems in the world today and our consumption is contributory to global warming and climate change. It is time to turn the tide.

Justine Villaranda

July 7, 2020 04:27

I like the idea of having a common point between consumers and social entrepreneurs online. Now more than ever, the need to go online is not just an upgrade, but a necessity. Consumers and entrepreneurs alike are flocking different social media platforms to purchase or sell products or services. With The SociaList, sustainably-sourced products and services will just be a click away.

As the world revolves around technology and everyone\'s working and interacts online, the SociaList is a great idea to utilize the online media platform.

I hope to see the idea be implemented soon!

Mikhail Ganzon

July 6, 2020 18:21

As someone who has had few knowledge about social entrepreneurs until today, I can honestly see the benefit to a system like this. But with that, I'm also slightly skeptical. For one, if this idea was to be launched in the Philippines, how can we say for certain that it will gain traction? While we are active in the online market, it is also quite known that we aren't exactly a country able to self-sustain itself. And in the current highly competitive market, we tend to rely on imports as we somewhat mistakenly see these as higher quality. So as a consumer myself, how would you try and get me to use this app and support local and sustainable products when for the vast majority of my life, I've been using imported goods that are more "modern" in comparison?

All in all though, I would love to see this idea get implemented. There are indeed many problems our world is currently facing, and if it's possible to help stop them while also creating a healthy and responsible place for consumers, then I'm all for it!

July 6, 2020 18:12

Thank you, Nicole and my mother, Mimay, for the very encouraging words! I really do hope that The SociaList takes off. I've been nursing this idea in for some time now and I really believe in its power to bolster social entrepreneurship in the Philippines, where it is proposed to be launched, and in other parts of the world as well.

July 6, 2020 17:15

From Tamanna's reply, I am happy to know that somewhat social entrepreneurship is gaining momentum in India. I need to know how well it is doing in different parts of the world as my idea, The SociaList, rests on it. Would love to hear more insights from other entrants. This looks really exciting!

July 6, 2020 16:48

Respected Sir,
Thank you so much for your response. Your idea is very unique and I believe relevant globally as well, including in India. Here, the premise of social entrepreneurship is gaining momentum. I may not be able to substantiate this with clear statistics, however, I observe that we do not have a significant ratio of social enterprises as of now, but the concept is a rising curve.
At Adar, I am myself involved in social entrepreneurship and I enthusiastically look forward to The SociaList for it seems really helpful for us to build presence globally. So, my sincere wishes for TheSociaList.
Kind regards,
