Promoting a healthy lifestyle naturally

Published on July 11, 2020 um 08:57

Explain your idea in details:

The objective is to promote a healthy lifestyle naturally to ensure sustainable development goals (Good Health; Wellbeing and Decent work; Economic growth) while eliminating hunger and poverty. Our innovative technology eliminates the problems in poor production of locust beans in Africa due to the rudimentary processing with a significant reduction in intensive labor, time; without wood consumption thereby saving our environment. Locust bean has lower caloric value; higher dietary protein content; its consumption according to nutritionists helps promote sight, aids digestion, controls diabetes; cholesterol compared to the unhealthy imported seasoning as there has been advocacy against using them because of its harmfulness. With our indigenous technology, we are able to produce locust bean spice with less odor that can be preserved for more than a year and hence targeting those who prefer the solid/the powdery form, less marshy and dried with or without odor and free of stones. We ensure the provision of more revenue and reduction of the task involved for local women due to the laborious process of washing the seeds, boiling them for 24 hours with firewood, and washing them with bare legs and stones thereby ensuring a high standard of living. We will eliminate poverty on the path of the subsistence farmers involved in the locust bean production by helping them to remove unnecessary middlemen hence, generating more revenue for them. We are aware of the environmental part of our production and have been able to create all-round recycling of waste from our production

Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development

The impact targets of my idea on sustainable development goals are focused on goals 1,2,3 and 8 which is to ensure a low level of poverty, Zero Hunger, Good health and wellbeing, and also decent work and economic growth in our country by 2030. Imbalanced diet is a problem in the Nigeria of today and creating an avenue for the masses to access an affordable nutritious diet through a natural seasoning is our goal. Most cooks in Nigeria of today use seasoning to make their food tasty and we are a product of what we are consuming. We are also ensuring the provision of good revenue for local women plying the trade by removing the laborious work involved for them. With our solutions, we will abscond the subsistence farmers involved in production from poverty as most of them live below $1 a day because of unnecessary middlemen in the sales channel. Part of our traction involved the provision of jobs for youths at the beginning of our operation.

Plans for implementation and sustainability

The business model for the actualization of the project is an investment from investors. We already have the minimum viable product but need funding to scale. The populace is already aware that locust bean is a natural seasoning for food. Hence we will be able to penetrate the market easily. With our completely integrated innovative indigenous technology, We will be reaching our customers by selling what makes our product to be unique as we are able to produce locust bean spice with less odor that can be preserved for more than a year and hence targeting those who prefer the solid/the powdery form, less marchy and dry with or without odor and free of stones. We will also be employing the best persuasion business device which is the word of mouth marketing through testimonials as we have a network of sellers who are experienced in the business. Digital marketing and advertisement through media will also be employed. We will also partner with health parastatals to promote the sales of the product due to its health benefit.

Your profile

My name is Waliu Adeniji, a native of Osun State, Nigeria. I am 24 years old. I am a graduate of Agricultural and Environmental Engineering at Obafemi Awolowo University where I served under various bodies and pushed meaningful changes such as the International Organization for Business and Engineering (IOBE), Agricultural and Environmental Engineering Student Society (AEESS), and the Digital Society (DS). My passion for eliminating poverty, hunger, creating a decent provision of work and economic growth and ensuring Good health and Wellbeing for the populace which are tenets of SDG 1,2,3 and 8 gave birth to the development of innovative technologies in processing locust bean by eliminating rudimentary process which has received several awards from different parastatals including Health, Environmental and Engineering across the 6 geopolitical zones in Nigeria.

@Promoting a healthy lifestyle naturally. Once again your idea is great. To add to my earlier comment on your idea, I suggest you consider the article below:

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

How to Promote Your Entry and Get More Votes

Almost a month has passed from the launch of the voting process for the 2020 Citizen Entrepreneurship Competition. Many of us already know that it takes some effort to get people support all the time. The voting process will help us understand why marketing is an integral component of the entrepreneurial design. Your idea or project might be great and highly beneficial to many people, but you need to get them to notice your service or product.

Getting started as a young entrepreneur is an exciting and challenging endeavor. Even if young people lack experience and knowledge, they have readiness and motivation to push through obstacles. On the other hand, it can be such an exciting opportunity for adults who did not have the opportunity to get involved with entrepreneurship in their younger years.

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

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

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

The same survey confirms that the most popular social media around the world based on the number of users are: Facebook, YouTube, WhatsApp, Messenger, WeChat, Instagram, Tik Tok, QZone, Sina Weibo, Reddit, Snapchat, Twitter, Pinterest and Kuaishou.

Next step. Identify what is the best type of content for each of these channels. Most people use social media for fun and relaxing. They chat with friends, look for photos, videos, and interesting content.
You can create a voice with videos and images
Cross-post across channels,
Use your hashtags
Appeal to influencers by quoting them on your promotions
Organize contests and giveaways
Share content from your friends
Ask for input
Share helpful information
Do not over post
Schedule social media posts in advance

Reminder
You need to publish your idea or project to make it eligible for the public vote. You can find it published at: Youth Competition 2020, Vote for best ideas 2020, Vote for best projects 2020; Adult Competition 2020 Vote for best ideas 2020, Vote for best projects 2020

Please I am encouraging you friends to create time and take the trainings and also read the articles. It is not all about the competition but the knowledge shared and acquired from this campus is awesome. Please do not miss out.

Finally, consider enrolling in the campus online training. This will help you improve on your entrepreneurial skills and derive the necessary motivation to keep forging ahead in the entrepreneurial journey even in the face of difficulties

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

I hope this helps as we are currently voting and commenting

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

Thank you for supporting my idea with your votes and comments

Best wishes on your implementation

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?

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.

Muhammad Yunus is a good example. His Grameen Bank with its microcredit revolutionized the understanding and practice of granting loans. Prior to Yunus, the poor were not deemed creditworthy but, perhaps even more importantly, they were not profitable customers for the banks even if they did repay their loans, because in the conventional banking system very small loans created a disproportionately high administrative burden. And of course no one believed that the poor possessed the skills needed by entrepreneurs. Yunus created a totally new approach, proving that the poor are a good credit risk and that it is possible to create a system that is mostly self financing that charges and collects interest and is applicable internationally. Anyone familiar with the Yunus story knows that he began with a loan of about 27 dollars, a ridiculously small sum by our standards, to help 42 women achieve micro entrepreneurship i.e. a little bit more than 50 cents per project, and that without exception all the borrowers repaid their loans.

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

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

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

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

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

With Brains versus Capital book you will whimsically find these answers

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

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.

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.

@promoting a healthy lifestyle naturally. your idea is impressive. To add to my previous comment on your idea, I am sharing the article below:
What Is a Business Model, Really

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

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

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

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

Three Characteristics of a Good Business Model

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

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

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

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

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

I hope that you find this useful.

Also, please do create time and take the campus online trainings as the trainings are there to help campus members understand what it is to be an entrepreneur.

Let is start with a small, manageable example. Rafael Kugel explains Scientists at the University of Essen discovered that the process of removing the rapeseeds bitter hullmade it possible to extract pleasant tasting oil. The valuable properties of rapeseed oil, now more commonly known as canola oil, have long been known, and the German Society for Nutrition DeutscheGesellschaft für Ernährung expressly recommends its consumption because of its nutritional benefits it contains 60 percent monounsaturated fatty acids and high levels of vitamin E, as well as polyunsaturated omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids. After the discovery of how to make the oil palatable, I thought it would be possible to help canola oil achieve a new economic life. If you packaged this oil in large containers and marketed it directly to the consumer, instead of selling it over the counter in small containers at high prices, would not that convince consumers to buy their canola oil by mail order from me? The Tea Campaign model transferred to canola oil?

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.
How should you sell your toothbrushes? Set up an online shop so that the acquaintances of your
acquaintances can buy a year is supply, or else you can distribute the toothbrushes in person when you
go for a visit. Do not be afraid that your friends will laugh at you. They will only do that at the beginning
before they understand the concept. After that, they will either be green with envy or they will immediately
start looking for a product to use for a little campaign of their own. If you brush your teeth with an
electric toothbrush and we hope you do the enterprise will pay off that much faster. You have certainly
already been irritated at how expensive those little brushes for the top of the hand piece are. Ideally you
should sell the motor right along with it. It should be rugged and have a long service life, and the device
should be designed with sensor technology that adjusts the pressure on the teeth, which is usually too
strong. In this way you will have eliminated the problem created by brand name electric toothbrush
manufacturers, which is that a different toothbrush head must be purchased for every brand of electric
toothbrush.
Now you start to think of a brand name. Take Green for example. Yes, Green. You cannot call your
electric toothbrush Braun Brown Braun is the name of a famous German company with a reputation
for high quality products. But Green maybe you could. To be safe, look for someone whose name is
Green and name your company after him. Keep looking under Green in the telephone book until
you find someone who is willing to go along with this experiment. If when you try to register the name,
they tell you that the name Green is not allowed, bring a legal action. If the brand Brown is allowed,
Green has to be permitted too. What I am really trying to say here is that you should choose a
memorable name that is as simple as possible and not let yourself be dissuaded too quickly by
statements like That would not work or There is one like that already.
The Tea Campaign never had any difficulty buying good quality tea, not even when the tea merchants
tried to use their market power against us and attempted to influence tea producers to stop selling to
us.

These days production is no longer the problem. So what is the problem? Packaging and shipping? This
is handled by professional packagers and shippers. The Projektwerkstatt offers this service we already
ship more than 100,000 parcels each year. We have the entire infrastructure. Your few dozen or several
hundred packages would not make any difference. As far as the costs are concerned, you will be getting
involved with an enterprise that is already operating with extreme efficiency. Even the postage will be
cheaper for you. While you will quickly shell out six Euros for a single package mailed parcel post at the
post office, the same package will cost only half as much with us and you will save yourself the trip to the
post office and the time waiting in line. Obviously the cost of packaging material is also lower because
we buy in quantity. It is a real win win situation. You will save a lot of money, and we will utilize our existing
capacity more efficiently, and later, when you are sending a thousand packages, our costs will be even
lower because now we will have larger volume and better purchase discounts because of you. But check
around to see whether you can find another service provider who might be even cheaper than we are,
or who is in a better position to meet your specific needs.
What is left is operating and administering the online shop. Here the solution is even simpler. Set up
your own online shop by using software that releases you from all the administrative duties. At the end
of the month you will get a report on how much you have sold and earned. If you are curious and want to
check on your business every night, you can call up the latest data yourself any time you want to.
Nowadays, you will find professional service providers who offer this service.

Now before you throw this book down in disgust, I will grant you that there are exceptions. When research
and development in the hi tech area is necessary, you will need large amounts of capital. The same
holds true in pharmaceutical research. An enormous amount of capital is required from the first
research findings through clinical trials to the sale of a drug.

So, now do you want a little company of your own?

Small is beautiful that may be true, you concede. Maybe you are more flexible than the big boys and
You are not saddled with a huge administrative apparatus. But does not a small company have definite
economic handicaps? Small batches, high unit costs, no money for research and development or for
marketing?
Marketing and infrastructure have changed in a way that has made the traditional perceptions of large
and small obsolete. This is because of the openness and transparency of the modern markets, as well as
the new professionalism and process reliability.
Thus, and this is the decisive factor, founders have access to the same market and on practically the
same terms as the big companies.

Day 27

Campus members today before you made any comment and sharing phase, and cast vote for my idea please read this

You are probably thinking it is cheaper to do things yourself rather than using third party professional
service providers. In practice, however, experience has often shown that if you take all of your own
costs into account, you can buy such services more cheaply than what it would cost you to perform
them yourself.
In summary, as unlikely as it may seem to you at the moment, you can play with the big boys. But you
should be prudent and limit yourself to supplying a single product or a single service. Marketing experts
will try to talk you into diversification so that you can spread your risk. But be careful you will be paying
for this with mushrooming complexity and higher unit costs. It was not without reason that Andrew
Carnegie said, Concentrate your energies, your thoughts and your capital. The wise man puts all his
eggs in one basket and watches the basket. The opportunity for you to become an expert in a single
subject, keep track of your business and be superior to existing conventions in this one thing outweighs
the risk of non diversification.
Later, when you have gathered more experience and your concept has been successful in practice, you can
expand, diversify or even bring the outsourced functions back into your company. At that point your
risks will be manageable and calculable

As a budding 2020 Citizen Entrepreneurship Contestant from Nigeria South South Nigeria Region I love my idea and project Electricity for Everyone because I seek out to ask many questions than answers, I am 100 percent focus and self discipline, critical thinker, networker, innovator while my major duty now is to help young people across mother Earth to start developing their inherent entrepreneurial skills and talents towards realizing our 17 sustainable development goals and join me now to ask many questions across our 2020 platform
Holger Johnson is just such a multi founder. In addition to Ebuero AG, he has established, co founded or functioned as a business angel actively engaged in the development of about 20 other companies. How does he do it? He concentrates on the entrepreneurial design, from which he formulates objectives and tasks and then supervises their execution. In this way he uses his head and his time in the area in which he excels. He knows full well that he must not permit too much complexity in his entrepreneurial design work. A high degree of complexity would increase susceptibility to error and require more decision making on his part; it would sap more of his energy and divert his attention from the areas where his best talents lie and from what he most enjoys. Campus members use this in your idea or project
I want all to reflect on it
Day 23
Successful companies originate in the mind. The better an entrepreneurial concept is and the more it is
analyzed and fine tuned, the more it will resemble a finished work of art and the more likely it is to be
successful.
I want all to reflect on it
Day 24
Dorothee is the daughter of a colleague of mine. She was an English major but did not want to become a
teacher. In her free time she creates vases, large ceramic pieces. She asked me whether she could not
make a little business out of this. I asked her a whole series of questions. Did she really enjoy doing it?
Did she enjoy it so much that she could imagine doing it over the long term? Are people willing to buy
these vases with their own money? And much more. Dorothee explained that she really did enjoy
working on her ceramics. That there are people who are buying her vases already and that she is earning
money with them, even when she calculates all her expenses and her own work time. And that if she
wanted to, she could ask for more money.
This did not sound bad. In fact, it sounded very convincing. Dorothee would probably be happier with her
vases than she would be working as a teacher in a job she disliked. My advice do it. Do not let yourself
be dissuaded bet on your artistic talent.
I ran into her again a few months later. Curious, I ask her about her business. I am not suited to be a
business person, she tells me. How so? I ask, amazed. Dorothee explains that she took a course in
starting a business, but I failed the balance sheet analysis.
Balance sheet analysis is something valuable. Nobody who wants to understand the financial situation of
a major company like Siemens can skip the balance sheet analysis. But what Dorothee needed is not a
balance sheet analysis. What she needs to know is whether her work is generating enough income.
Every street kid in Manila, every woman in Bangladesh who gets a microcredit from the Grameen Bank,
has the business smarts for this, without formal business administration concepts and techniques. A
formal requirement just frightens people off, especially creative, artistically inclined people. The start-up
consultant would have given better advice if he had simple told Dorothee to collect the receipts for her
expenses and her income and take them to a bookkeeper, or to pay a student to do her income tax
return. With Dorothee, a promising business founder was derailed because of an incompetent startup
consultant.
I want all to reflect on it
Day 25
Getting rid of the fanciful ideas
And where was the campfire? Much too dangerous. The artistic performances? Could you do a somersault in your confirmation suit? Any fanciful ideas had been taken away from the children before they were even aware of it. The concept of the adventure restaurant was dead on arrival.
I want all to reflect on it

Day 27
Once you have the concept, you go on to researching and identifying appropriate components. This, too, does not have to become a full time job. Do not be satisfied with the first supplier to come along, just because you are happy to have found a component. Inquire, research, investigate, compare. Finally, you are ready to coordinate the components. This, too, is a manageable task where concepts are simple and straightforward.
Under these conditions illustrated in the examples described above founding a company can actually be a kind of part-time job. Launching a company with a safety net, so to speak. Do not give up your day job, your old occupation, until your own idea concept proves to be sound and sustainable. Wait for your concept to prove itself. Do not put all your money on one card, but establish your business on a carefully considered and securely solid basis. It is not true that the fast devour the slow in every situation, but those who are well prepared and work with professional partners will succeed over those who are excitable, overworked and try to organize everything in house.
I want all to reflect on it
Today, I motivate you to make use of my comment and also share with others in the platform so as to learn and improve your idea and project for successful startups and SDGs realization. I share it freely with others ideas and projects so as to join all in achieving our 2020 target in our entrepreneur campus.
I urge everyone today to freely and blissfully cast their votes and comments to my idea and project Electricity for Everyone and this is a link to my idea thanks a lot

Hallo Campus Member and My Fellow Contestants 2020

Gunten Morgen oder ( or Good Morning ),

I want to say , sustainability is one of the most important things and we should invest more in research to improve it. Moreover, I like the fact that your initiative has a powerful and peaceful focus first. So I want you to read the below

Let me start this part what is a leading social entrepreneur by asking you a question. What is the most powerful force in the world? I think it is pretty clear that it is a major pattern changing idea, but only if it is in the hands of an entrepreneur. It is that combination that moves the world more than anything else. So let me then challenge you to see some of the patterns as I introduce these two stories.
The first story is about Mary Gordon. Mary is a Canadian. She was elected a Fellow just short of three years ago. She saw a problem in the classes she was teaching in the public schools in Toronto. There was increasing number of children who could only respond to another child who made them uncomfortable with aggression, which of course invited aggression back from the other child, and you can predict where all that was leading. Every time a child went through that cycle the pattern would get deeper, and the probability of that child not being able to function in a world that requires a high level of skill in dealing with others increased. And of course the probability of the school being dysfunctional increased. Because Mary is an entrepreneur, she gave herself permission to see a problem that was obvious but no one was seeing. This is a clue as to one of the first patterns. Entrepreneurs give themselves permission to see and to think and to act.
If you are an entrepreneur, you do not want to solve it just for the children in your class. You want to change the whole society. Well, how do you change the education system? Everywhere in the world, it is notorious for not being the most innovative or fast moving sector. So she knew it had to be a very simple idea. I will jump ahead to the results. Three years later, she is gone from 2 schools to 2,000 schools in Canada New Zealand has adopted the idea and she has been approached by the Government of Japan for help.
What is her idea? She asks only for one hour a month for 8 months of a class, and the younger the children the better. She brings an infant less than one year old, plus mom, plus a green blanket. The infant is the professor. The infant sits on the green blanket. The students have the responsibility, not the teacher, for figuring out what the professor is saying and later what the professor is feeling. You can imagine the children get into this very quickly. It has a huge impact. The Canadians actually have a measurement system for bullying. After those 8 hours, bullying rates come down and stay down. You could see that this is an idea and approach that could work anywhere in the world and Mary is out to make it work everywhere in the world. So that is Case One

Once again this is a fantastic [email protected] a healthy liestyle naturally. In addition, to my previous comment on your project, I am sharing with you what can help you refine your ideas and projects for success.

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

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

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

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

Note: Should you find this comment useful and may want to further refine your idea, understand that there is still a window to do that in the competition. You just need to open your page, click on improve, refine your idea as needed, safe, unpublished and republish again.

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

Best wishes in your implementation

We just wanted to say that we are lucky to be part of a community with such great entrepreneurs! Entrepreneurship is what drives change in this world, so we want to thank you for taking the stand for issues that usually go unnoticed.

Since your idea has not been actualized yet, here are some resources I personally found to be helpful as I was developing my project.

Cofounders Lab is great for identifying other talented cofounders, especially if you feel that you want a partner that complements your experiences.
If you search up Alexander Osterwalder's Product Market Fit Guide, you'll also be able to identify ways to develop your value proposition.
As for creating a website for naming venture ideas, I personally found Domain Name Brain and Knowem to be useful in checking domain and trademark availability.

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 brilliant work!

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.

July 18, 2020 14:40

Campus member I have meticulously read through your concept and idea 2020 and I see that it is impressive, but I have this following day 8 to 14 days of the commence of commenting phase to share with you the following below how you can question, examine and refine your concept for fruition implementation after your laboratory, study them carefully

Day 8
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 today in our commenting and sharing phase

I want to educate all campus members to learn this from me freely

As for us, the company founders, our workload would also be reduced after the startup phase, so that
once again we would be free to pursue new ideas we ourselves were not involved in any of the steps
necessary for producing or shipping the apple juice. We outsourced all necessary services. Ratio Drink AG
makes use of sector specific service companies and has spent considerable time identifying good and
reliable partners.
If you want apple juice, you have to get apples, press them, collect the juice in containers and ship it. A
company near Lake Constance collects the apples throughout the region, processes them into juice
concentrate and sends it to our bottler in 1,000 liter tanks. The bottler, in turn, has the task of filling the
concentrate into a 3 liter bag in box properly, keeping everything clean and sterile. We do not supply
this packaging either, but instead purchase it from a manufacturer with the appropriate expertise. After
the concentrate is filled into the bag in box containers, another company forwards the product to our
shipper in Hamburg, who reships it to fulfill our customers orders. We have also outsourced all the
bookkeeping. Thus we do not need to purchase hardware and software for running the company
instead, we delegate the task to someone who does it more professionally and more economically than
we could do it for ourselves.
Well, then, how are we spending our time? We have now conceived of an entrepreneurial concept and
sought out the proper components to implement it. While others are groaning under their workload, we
have time to think about our next steps.
What is new here is that no one had ever bottled juice concentrate in bag in box containers. Part of the
task, though, was coordinating the producer of the concentrate with our bottler and the packaging
manufacturer. Is that all? Not quite. When you use new methods, you can also experience unforeseen
problems. The packaging material we used initially proved not to be sturdy enough it did not always
withstand shipment by mail. So implementation has not become less important: the critical issue is that
today many operations can be outsourced and placed in professional hands. Recognizing this gave us
more freedom to fine tune the concept instead of having to educate ourselves in a variety of specialty
areas.

Day 9

Campus members did you know that DuttweiIer, with some friends, founded the Migros Company in 1925?

On August 25, early in the
morning, five trucks rolled off to deliver their goods to the people. The trucks were loaded with only six
products coffee, rice, sugar, noodles, coconut oil, and soap. All in large packages. A flyer explained why
these goods were so inexpensive, despite their high quality. The trucks and their drivers were a kind of
consumer education on wheels. Duttweiler, the diligent researcher and discoverer of the obvious,
proved to be a successful entrepreneur of the first order with his breakthrough as price cutter.

Campus members, did you know Duttweiler can also be regarded as a pioneer in matters of efficiency? Why can not you all apply this concept for you your idea and project.

Campus members please check page 26 of Brains versus Capital book and apply it in improving your idea and project.

Day 10
.

Campus members did you know that 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. This approach may seem plausible, but it is highly dangerous. In the history of new business ventures, there have probably been more failures of promising but immature ideas than there have been successful startups

Campus members please check page 28 of Brains versus Capital book and apply it in improving your idea and project.

Day 11

Campus members did you know 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.

Campus members please check page 29 of Brains versus Capital book and apply it in improving your idea and project.

Day 12

Campus members did you know, If you are successful, one thing is guaranteed there will be imitators, and they can be very dangerous. If they have established sales channels, lots of capital and generous advertising budgets, there is a great risk that they will overtake you. Would a patent protect you here? The modern answer is yes, but only for a short time. As soon as the competition recognizes that there is a new solution, they too will devise other methods. According to Mitchell and Coles, a technological innovation will give a company an advantage of only six to twelve months at most. An advantage in the concept will have a longer effect, especially if you continuously refine it further

Campus members please check page 34 of Brains versus Capital book and apply it in improving your idea and project.

Day 13

Campus members Let us consider Faltins Puzzle here

I want to share a little story with you. I am a student and I am driving through southern France in my old
VW. A hitchhiker is standing by the side of the road. I am alone and I pick him up. We get into a
conversation, and I ask him what kind of work he does. He says he is a disk jockey in the Seychelles.
Wow, I say, a DJ in the Seychelles what a super job. The guy looks totally normal. How do you get a job
like that? He says it was not particularly difficult. Not hard? I ask. There have to be ten thousand people
dreaming of a job like that How did he manage it? He says he looked up the addresses of hotels on the
Seychelles, he drafted a letter, and one hotel wrote him to come out there. Sure, I say, but thousands of
others must have done the same thing. No, he says he was the only one
Have not you heard people say to you and perhaps you are saying this to yourself, Do not think for a
minute you are the first person with this idea Think about the Tea Campaign. Did I invent economy sized
packaging? Was I the one who discovered you could avoid the middlemen? No. But these two
puny ideas, neither brilliant nor creative, applied to a field where no company had ever used them
before, has made the Tea Campaign the biggest importer of Darjeeling tea in the world.
So look for a field of your own and start to analyze it. What principles could change the conditions in this
field to your advantage? Do not let yourself be deterred by well meaning friends and acquaintances who
do not want to believe that you have found something that works.
But if you get to the point of giving up, take a tip from Daniel Goleman, an psychology professor who
made a name for himself with his study of emotional intelligence. He describes the difference between a
genius and an ordinary person. There is but one small difference, but it is decisive. Both persons work on
a problem, and neither one can solve it. Both have to decide whether to give up because the problem
seems intractable. But here is the difference. The ordinary person gives up, which seems reasonable, in
light of the time wasted and the hopelessness of the task. The genius, according to Goleman, also gives
up but not entirely. He pushes the problem back into the recesses of his subconscious and waits. And
it so happens that a pattern turns up at a totally different place than the path where he had been
looking for it. Because he did not abandon the problem totally, he now has a chance to recognize the
pattern and apply it to the problem on the back burner of his mind .
Is there a guarantee that you will find a solution to your problem? Not at all. How long should you stick it
out? Persevere after all, it does not cost you anything to keep a semiconscious thought in the back of
your mind and check on its progress from time to time.
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. It is a game or a sport. The Danish philosopher Søren Kierkegaard worked simultaneously at six
separate desks because he found that when he was writing one text, ideas would come to him for the
other texts he was not working on at that moment. You, too, can play at a number of puzzles at the same
time.

made a name for himself with his study of emotional intelligence. He describes the difference between a
genius and an ordinary person. There is but one small difference, but it is decisive. Both persons work on
a problem, and neither one can solve it. Both have to decide whether to give up because the problem
seems intractable. But here is the difference. The ordinary person gives up, which seems reasonable, in
light of the time wasted and the hopelessness of the task. The genius, according to Goleman, also gives
up but not entirely. He pushes the problem back into the recesses of his subconscious and waits. And
it so happens that a pattern turns up at a totally different place than the path where he had been
looking for it. Because he did not abandon the problem totally, he now has a chance to recognize the
pattern and apply it to the problem on the back burner of his mind .
Is there a guarantee that you will find a solution to your problem? Not at all. How long should you stick it
out? Persevere after all, it does not cost you anything to keep a semiconscious thought in the back of
your mind and check on its progress from time to time.
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. It is a game or a sport. The Danish philosopher Søren Kierkegaard worked simultaneously at six
separate desks because he found that when he was writing one text, ideas would come to him for the
other texts he was not working on at that moment. You, too, can play at a number of puzzles at the same
time.

Day 14

Campus members did you know, 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.

Campus members please check page 40 of Brains versus Capital book and apply it in improving your idea and project.

My Co contestant 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. So please heartily vote and comment for my own idea now. Please kindly cast your vote to my idea link here https www.entrepreneurship campus org ideas 26 17721

July 18, 2020 14:16

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.
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

Wow what I great idea, I think this is a great idea and development wow so impressive, I'm actually a great lover of locust beans because its usually have a great taste in food and its nutritious as well so I really love this idea just keep your head up and aim high.

Adebayo Taiwo

July 14, 2020 10:49

Wahoo, it's a very good idea of producing a locus Bean With a machine because it will be More advantageous than the local one. May God Almighty Allah make it successful

Elisha

July 13, 2020 20:06

This is a very bright idea. The fact that it touches an aspect of Nutrition. It can be found in a wide range of environments in Africa, and is a good source of fat and calcium for rural dwellers. Locust bean product should be converted into powdery form and packaged into various sizes in plastics for easy distribution which this implementation is driving towards which makes it a very great one too.
Local research has shown that locust bean helps to promote good sight and drives away hypertension and diseases conditions like stroke and diabetes
So I totally recommend this idea
Keep it up brother

Toyyib Adewumi

July 13, 2020 10:15

This is good one, I hope it soon come to work, so we enjoy our locus bean made with our own technology.
I will like the developer to also put into consideration companies who would like to produce the product in mass,with some good packaging which entices other countries to use the product. He should get designs ready in scale ,which will suit everyone

July 13, 2020 08:35

Great idea. Locust beans is one the nutritional foods the world is really honning for in contemporary times. Ironically many do not still know the benefots of this beans. In many region, it is difficult to see it. I suggest you include in your solution awareness creation on the importance of locust beans, the locust beans farming as well as training on precessing of the beans. Very important also, you need to undertake the enterpreneurship online training to understand how to effective implement your idea. Weldone and best wishes on your implementation.

Mubaraq Somuyiwa

July 13, 2020 00:35

After carefully going through the contents of this idea I find it overwhelming as it brings so much joy to see such innovation which will not only reduce hard labour will increase the use of local produce which has more health benefit and will be readily available in various forms and storage is not a problem Being a business person it is always an obstacle once it comes to funding marketing and market penetration I believe in growth and I hope this idea see limelight

Ridwan

July 12, 2020 22:01

This is a welcome development. I really love locust beans, but the local mode of production is discouraging. Being able to get a healthy, clean, and hygienic locust beans would be perfect as a sub for all these chemically loaded spices. Nice one!

Adekunle Lanre

July 12, 2020 20:55

This is a very good innovation as this will go a long way in the optimisation of the production process of locust beans!
This is what engineering is all about, the practical application of scientific knowledge to production processes in order to maximize output.

Abdulwaasi

July 12, 2020 20:32

This is a great!
Locust beans is a process of natural fermentation which add probiotics to food needs. Probiotics help boost immune system with additional nutritional values.
Many people like locust beans as seasoning compare to the artificially processed ones but can't stand the odour, making the odour less repulsive will make it a better choice for them.

And the powdery form will improve its shelf life.

Kodus brother...

Alabi

July 12, 2020 19:45

Nice...This is a nice innovation and tech knowledge which need urgent funding so as not kill the ideology and belief of the innovator...we need this invention so that we can reach some kind of level with other developed countries like USA, United kingdom and the likes

SEUN ADEJUMO

July 12, 2020 19:39

Bravo! This is great idea that needs proper funding. It is an innovation that will transform the agricultural space and make it tech-driven. I strongly believe that if this idea is carefully executed as highlighted above, there would be a turn around in production of locust beans and this will in return provide job opportunities and elevate individual health status.

It is brilliant idea that needs support!!!

Motivator Najeeb

July 12, 2020 16:18

You've done a great job by thinking about developing a sophisticated tech like this. We need people like you, or shall I say, youth like you to think about how they can contribute their impact to the development of this world; we need visionaries (like you) who can think out of the box.

An idea like this will not only ease the affairs of folks into locust beans business, (where their hassles of processing locust bean will be brought to the barest minimum or none) but will also change the world, by His grace.

Brother, you've made a positive impact to this world through this idea of yours, I beseech the All-Mighty to corroborate you in your vision and endeavour, grant you its goodness and make you an icon of inspiration & motivation to other youth out there. More power to your elbow!

Mucheal

July 12, 2020 16:01

This is a brilliant innovation with great merits and advantageous ramifications for the producers of locust beans.
I hope to see this innovation put to use by those concerned.
.Well done Waliu!

ISMAIL ERINFOLAMI

July 12, 2020 14:59

An impressive idea from a rigorous thinking. I won't be surprised if your project is selected as the best. People have always lamented about the poor quality of locust beans seeing around. I'm always afraid to buy it when I remember some used to contain foreign bodies. With this innovation, we can enjoy our lovely locust beans in various varieties. Storage in refrigerator too wouldn't be a problem and it will help small and medium enterprise to process it with little effort.

Engr. Sheriff

July 12, 2020 14:05

This is really awesome. This is the innovation that is needed to reduce human power and increase quality and productivity of Agricultural produce.
Kudos to you Sir.

Waliu Amosu

July 12, 2020 12:31

This is really a good idea which is going to go a long way in improving the industry it is made for. Good job.

I hope you get selected and funded for this project in order to lick start on time. Get rid of the offensive odour and make it more presentable as promised.

Jamiu Alabi Abolade

July 12, 2020 12:16

This is a jobwelldone and nice initiative by LOC SPICE. As a health practitioner, the importance of locust bean cannot be overemphasised. Most of the locust beans sold in our various markets are dangerous because they contain stones but with this initiative, sellers can easily have access stone free locust beans and make it available in markets. It is cost effective and easy to use which will make it easy for those who process to operate. Kudos to LOC SPICE once again. Thumbs up.

Akintomiwa Ojo

July 12, 2020 10:01

This is definitely a game-changer for locust beans production. The simplicity of the machine makes the idea perfect for farmers as it seems to require little or no expertise to operate.
Also, if this great idea is well established, it will definitely be a win-win situation for farmers and consumers considering the highlighted economic and health benefits.
Kudos to LOC SPICE.

Amusa Sherifdeen

July 12, 2020 09:59

This is a nice initiative aimed at improving hygienic processing of food items in Nigeria.
Aside from the nutritional benefits of locust beans, many people who are allergic odour get pissed off by odour of locust beans. I\'m sure if this project is given the light of the day, it would help in eliminating the stigma against locust beans and would make it generally acceptable as a nutrition filled natural spices.

Kehinde habibat

July 12, 2020 03:25

This is a fantastic idea
I am a great lover of locust bean so is my family except my sister.

My sister uses locust bean to cook because of it's health benefit and the way it spice up food taste but, whenever she wants to eat she begins to remove them herself.

This powdery locust bean will allow her and many others in her condition to cook and eat their food freely without the need to remove any locust bean.

Great work bro.

Farouq Olatunji Alao

July 12, 2020 03:23

This is a welcome development. I am more than convinced this idea will go a long way in combating with the problems of unemployment, hunger, ripping of local farmers in earning the maximum profits from their hard labors and to mention but a few. This idea is a 'yes' for me. Farouq Olatunji Alao.

Abdullah

July 11, 2020 21:42

The future we dream of is actually becoming a reality. I intentionally looked through the other inputs of the co-innovators and I couldn't find a match. When I was very little, I've watched women get stressed out while processing locust bean locally with their feet. Sometimes I would be having soup prepared with locust bean, as a child I was, I felt like vomiting whenever I remember the scenarios. I later understand there "was" no better option. And here comes the best. The idea is very relatable and genuine. There couldn't be any better idea but LOC SPICE.

Rasheed Adewale

July 11, 2020 20:01

The idea is in line with the solution to solve the current problems we are facing in Africa. It solved among the problems in the health sector and it also solves the issue of poverty for our women. Locust beans is consumed in most part of Africa and it health benefits are numerous. Through launching of this idea, a lot of health issues will be solved

Azeez Abdulrahman Adewale

July 11, 2020 19:51

Can't wait to see this idea work. It should solve the mentioned problems and make it better acceptable to people who dislike it because of the offensive odour.

Abdulgoniyy

July 11, 2020 19:12

This is a nice and unprcedented idea. It will actually enable us to reduce our consumption of sodium-laiden maggis. It will allow us the opportunity of lowering the consumption of sodium, too much of which has been said to be one of the major causes of Chronoc Kidney Disease in our diet It's natural and rich in protein.

Abdulhafeez Nasir

July 11, 2020 18:58

Coming up with this idea by a vibrant young man is what we need as a community to develop ourselves and help bring out the best in these young lads, they have the silver-dollar potential to do great things, keep it up.

Baytul jamal

July 11, 2020 18:38

This is a nice innovation.. apart from reducing unemployment ,this is very beneficial in persevering human health due to exposure to radiations..
Locust bean contains lots of anti oxidants and heart friendly properties coupled with being processed in an hygienic environment ..

MUOGHALU Chimdi Catherine

July 11, 2020 17:51

Wow, this idea is really nice and extremely innovative, it is well articulated. I strongly believe it would help make the processing of locust beans less herculean.

July 11, 2020 17:44

The idea is very innovative and meaningful. I am sure it will have a profound impact on our society and holistic living. Many congratulations for the same.

This here is a wonderful idea, in drive to provide I believe it is of utmost importance that we improve on methods of food production and processing so that we can have more healthy foods and at cheaper rates. Also I believe that the process that the project uses can be modified as an alternative to many of the crude methods that is used in processing of food. This is a great and wonderful idea.

Temidayo Osho

July 11, 2020 15:35

This idea is fantastic, Locust bean being one of the major source of protein with good health benefits. The cost of time and energy in production of the locust bean will be aided efficiently and produced in enormous capacity. This project is a realistic one. It will help develop our society health-wise and also have a nutritious community. This will encourage more people to do more of its usage.

Tosin

July 11, 2020 15:35

Nice laudable innovation, he should be greatly encouraged..... thank you for thinking about the local women by reducing there stress. This locust bean after the processing can then proceed to supermarket packaging.

Abiodun Emitomo

July 11, 2020 15:34

Sincerely speaking, this is a very nice and life style changing idea!

It is capable of creating a new perspective of locust bean in people, thereby making it more acceptable!

Naimat

July 11, 2020 15:29

Research has shown that locust beans has so many health benefits part of which is it promotes good sight, drives away hypertension and other diseases conditions like stroke and diabetes. This is why locust beans processing is very important and should not be taken for granted. Processing it will definitely increase its availability for people to consume.

Abdulrahmon Soliu

July 11, 2020 15:29

This is a fantastic and extraordinary move in seasoning coz most people dislike using the locust beans due to it offensive smell. It will be nice to use it without having experiencing this. I await the positive outcome

Alao Taofeek

July 11, 2020 15:20

Technology is one of the key ways to enhance preventive medicine. I see this project as a potential contributor in preventing cardiovascular diseases like high blood pressure (hypertension) which is one of the global causes of death. The commonly used spices today predisposed us to cardiovascular diseases due to their high salt content.. Locust bean, providing better flavor and containing essential nutrient is a better substitute for this spices.
Thus, a technology that seeks to enhance the production of locust bean in a more hygienic and preserved way deserves to be supported as it promotes preventive medicine which will in turn contribute remarkably to the society, socioeconomically.

Oyedele Babatunde Mubarak

July 11, 2020 14:01

Brilliant idea! Locust bean is one of the major source of protein in our locality. With the idea to reduce the cost of time and energy in it's production, this will further encourage people to produce it in larger quantities and efficiently. I support this project in it's entirety, as it is going to aid in building a more balanced and nutritious society.

July 11, 2020 13:12

Excellent idea. Locust beans is a nutritious, healthy and proteineous food in Nigeria and Africa. Traditionally it is called Nigerian Maggi. Many people in the rural villages enjoy this delicacy but many do not really know what it s and its benefits. My suggestions: Given the health benefit of locust bean I suggest ypu include in your solution, awreness creation of the health benefits of locust beans as well as rearing of this plants and then providing trainings on how it can be healthily processes for consumption. I encourage you to take up the entrepreneurship campus online training so you will equip on how to go about your idea implementation successfully. Weldone and bes of luck to your implementation stage

Abdullah Oladipo

July 11, 2020 13:11

This is such a fantastic idea particularly in allowing for long term preservation and removal of the offensive odour. I can't wait to see this coming to reality.

July 11, 2020 12:59

My Love my own project that is Emmanuel Ekpeyoungs project, because it align with our sustainable development goal 7 which very vital to us now I am supporting with my comments and I want all campus members to votes and comments for this project in Adult Category, Electricity for Everyone https www entrepreneurshipcampus.org ideas 28 17040 thanks, here are the quotes.

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.

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.

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.

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