Super Artificial Intelligence Doctor System

Stage of Idea planning stage

Explain your idea in details:

Super Artificial Intelligence Doctor System is a Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence system that has the main aim of predicting the next disease a patient can have after the effect of the first disease or prediction of the disease through a patient's general history. Objectives of the system. (1)Predicting diseases and give accurate results to the patients. -The system can predict the coming disease a patient can have in a high accuracy result, and this will help a patient to take action on how to prevent the possible coming disease before it shows up.(2)To improve the doctor's work when serving the patients. -Using this system will improve doctor's work whereby a doctor, after taking patient history, can use the system to predict the next disease a patient will have with high prediction accuracy. (3) To improve the health sector worldwide. - Because I believe the system will bring a huge change in the health sector surely worldwide. Different activities will be done in implementing the idea, but the main activity will be training the system using Artificial Neural Networks with different disease dataset and test the accuracy of the system. The whole idea shows an innovation, but also in planning for the implementation system there are several innovation approaches to it, which are, (1) The use of Artificial Neural Networks models to train different disease data and test the accuracy of predicting the disease, the artificial neural networks is a part of deep learning with the power of working as a human brain (2) The combination of Artificial Intelligence and machine learning in developing a scan which can take the patients fingerprint and predict the bad characteristics of the person with easy thus to note which disease is possible to attack the patient.

Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development

Sustainable development can be done or maintained by healthy people. From the system objectives, the target is to improve people's health by predicting the disease they can acquire before getting it, and this becomes easy for the person to prevent the disease as early as possible and continue with the daily activities. And this reduces the cost and time of treating the disease because there is a different cost in treating a disease that shows up already and a disease that is not yet in the human body. The success of the system can be measured by checking the percentage of accuracy in predicting the coming disease. If the percentage of accuracy is high, then we can conclude the system will bring changes by helping patients to know the coming disease and prevent it before the disease becomes serious.

Plans for implementation and sustainability

The implementation of the idea is based much on the use of Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence, so far until now, I am finding myself to implement the idea, and I don't have official collaborators. The implementation of the idea will depend much on Microsoft Tools, which most of them are provided free, but also will need to pay for a further subscription in order to get the full package, which can support to implement the idea smoothly. The last plan is to sell the project to hospitals that can buy it and also serve for free to hospitals which can't afford to buy it. I will use part of the income I will get from hospitals which paying to set the system, and use the money to set up the system to hospitals which can't pay especially those which are located in villages of poor countries.

Your profile

My name's Nelson Kipengele, 26 years old. I was born and raised in Tanzania, where I studied a Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science at the Institute of Accountancy Arusha under the Information and Communication Unity. Now, I am doing online classes with Coventry University of the UK and expect to finish my studies in September 2020, but also I am working with the Right Student Accommodation Company, which is located in the UK as a Software Developer. I worked with Inspired Ideas LLC as an Intern Software Developer. I got a chance to explore a lot about computer technologies, especially Artificial Intelligence, because the company was developing a healthcare software application that was connected to Artificial Intelligence technology. From this point, I saw Software Development from a different angle, and now I am interested in developing software applications which connect to Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence technology. Awards/Recognitions. (1)COMMONWEALTH SCHOLARSHIP. - In September 2019, I was awarded a Commonwealth Scholarship to study a Master's Degree in Computer Science in the UK by the Commonwealth Scholarship Commission of which I am in progress. (2) CERTIFICATE OF PARTICIPATION. - In January 2020, I was awarded the certificate of participating in the United Nations SDG International eTournament 2020, which was organized by the CCGame Project from Hong Kong. (3)CERTIFICATE OF MERIT. - In December 2018, I was awarded a certificate of recognition from the Institute of Accountancy Arusha for my outstanding academic performance throughout the three years of my study in the Bachelor of Computer Science program at the Institute of Accountancy Arusha, in Tanzania.

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

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

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

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

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

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

I hope you will derive some benefits from this.

Finally, I have voted and commented on your idea; please consider supporting my idea with your votes and comments @https://www.entrepreneurship-campus.org/ideas/26/17094/

Best of luck in your implementation.

Dear friend,
Greetings from Nigeria! Today is the last days!!!
The competition is ending soon but not the dream of changing the world. Believe in your potential and Keep working on your project!
Nelson Mandela once Said, "it is in your hands, to make a better world for all who live in it". Your idea has the potential to change the world as we know it. So keep working on it, I wish you success on your project, hope you will accomplish that. Anybody can start a business Idea. The Key is to execute and sustain.
In this fight for a sustainable future, what we need is innovation; something which is not necessarily new, but which makes us look at things from a different angle.I believe this is one of the major motives of this community which we are a part of. Taking one step together hand in hand towards our goal is the only way we can achieve it. So I wish you the very best in this endeavour of yours and hope to see you together in the new tomorrow.

Today being the last day of Votes and Comments I will like to shear with you some very important tips on How To Future-Proof Your Business During A Recession.

No business is immune to the effects of recession, but you can take this steps to protect your business.

1/ INVEST IN TECHNOLOGY.
While this depends on the type of the business or product/s, incorporating technology will help you streamline will help your processes and make business more easier.

2/ CREATE A RUNNING LIST OF EXPANSION IDEAS.
The truth is you can/t predict the future, but the more ideas you have the better. Start Now! Create an list of ways your business could adjust to the needs your customers may have during a recession.

3/ CREATE AN ACTION PLAN.
Don/t wait until you notice business is slowing down before you take an action.
Create a go- to- market plan and of course, a financial plan.

I hope this will help you Scale in the long run. And I will also encourage you to read this 2 books Exponential Organisation by Salim Ismail and the Brain Virus Capital by Prof. Günter Faltin.
I wish you all the best in further implementation!

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

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

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

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

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

Startup UARoads

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Mailchimp is a startup with personality

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

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

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

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

Good day friend

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

Would really appreciate your vote

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

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

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

Keep up the great work!

Sincerely,
0-Gap Mask Team :)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Dear friend, I hope you will derive some benefits from this. Also, please do create time and take the campus online trainings as the trainings are there to help campus members understand what it is to be an entrepreneur.

Finally, I have voted and commented on your idea; please consider supporting my idea with your votes and comments @https://www.entrepreneurship-campus.org/ideas/26/17094/

Best of luck in your implementation.

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

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

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

Keep up the great work!

Dear fellow entrepreneur,

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

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

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

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

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

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

Keep up the great work!

Greetings from Nigeria once again.
I hope you are doing great?

Dear fellow campus member,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Thank you!

Hello,
I think you are doing well! Congratulations on your idea.
Young today, we are all called to contribute with our ideas, our projects, for the advancement of this world. Each of our ideas can bring change for our society. This shows the need to plan and structure our project ideas well. We must take care to think well and define our goals. Why do we have this idea? How will we do to keep it running? What impact will our business have on society? We must therefore put the emphasis on the structuring of our project ideas since, in addition to the presentation and realization of our project ideas, we must think about its sustainability and its contribution to sustainable development.
This is my support for you!!! Keep going with your idea!!

I wants to say thank you for your immense contribution to the campus and to my idea in particular and I/ll request your continuous support! And also, I will like to share with you some tips. According to Jack Ma, This Is What Your Life Should Be Like Between 20 And 60 Years Old.

Before you turn 20 years old,be a good student.
Just to get some experience.

Before you turn 30 years old, follow somebody. Go to a small company. Normally, in a big company, it is good to learn processing, you are part of a big machine. But when you go to a small company, you learn the passion, you learn the dreams. You learn how to do a lot of things at one time. So before 30 years old, its not which company you go to, its which boss you follow. A good boss teaches you differently.

Between 30 and 40 years, you need to think clearly whether you want to work for yourself, if you want to be an entrepreneur.

When you/re between 40 and 50 years old, you must do all the things that you are good at. Dont try to jump into the new area, its too late. You may be successful. But the rate of dying is too big. So when you/re between 40 and 50 ,think about how you can focus on things that you are good at

But when you are 50 to 60 years old, work for the young people. Because young people can do better than you. So rely on them, invest in them, and make sure they/re good

When you are over 60 years old, spend time on yourself.
On the beach, sunshine, its too late for you to change.

And I agree with Mr. ma!

To change the world, invest in youth.
The secret here is helping those who want to be successful, help young people. Help small guys. Because small guys will be big.
Young people will have the seeds you bury in their minds and when they grow up they will change the world.

Our message for today!

Sincerely,

Umar Imam.

We wanted to suggest a few tools to you, since we found them extremely helpful for remote collaboration. Basecamp is a virtual collaboration tool that helps you communicate with your team members about different tasks, while Notion is really useful when it comes to team-task prioritization.

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

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

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

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

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

I hope you will derive some benefits from this.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Thank you for supporting my idea with your votes and comments

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

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

[email protected] Superartificial intelligence doctor system, your idea is impressive. In addition to my other comments on your idea or project, I realize some of us do not think it is necessary to collaborate, vote and comment on each other ideas or projects, so, I am sharing with you the importance of us supporting each other even though we are in a competition.

As we all know, the voting process started here at the Youth Citizen Entrepreneurship Competition since 6 July and all Campus Members are excited.
But why it is important to vote one another, even if we are in a competition

When you vote and comment, you support the best ideas or projects. It is very important to give a vote to an idea or project you think is a good one and has possibilities to be implemented in the reality. Since the voting process is open to the public, some people can get undeserved votes and better ideas that are running in this competition can be left behind. That is why your votes and comment.

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

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

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

I hope you will derive some benefits from this.

Finally, I have voted and commented on your idea; please consider supporting my idea with your votes and comments @https://www.entrepreneurship-campus.org/ideas/26/17094/

Best of luck in your implementation.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

I got your back on this.

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

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

I have voted and made a comment on your idea or project; so please should you come online soon, do consider supporting my idea Eduheal with your votes and comments @ https://www.entrepreneurship-campus.org/ideas/26/17805/

Guten Tag to You

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

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

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

Page 128

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

Page 133

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

Page 136

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

Page 137

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

Page 139

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

Page 143

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

Page 148

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

Page 149

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

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

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

Page 159

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

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

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

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

August 15, 2020 18:06

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

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

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

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

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

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

Page 158 - 159

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

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

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

There is much to suggest that entrepreneurs can live a freer, more intense and probably more fulfilled life than many of their contemporaries. To be sure, few people possess such extreme personalities as Richard Branson nevertheless many of the better known founders are free spirits, with a personality profile closer to artists than to managers and bookkeepers

Entrepreneurship as an Adventure The thrill that many people seek in an adventure vacation can also be found through entrepreneurship, through innovative and at times extravagant professional work. The strains of wage labor are inadequately mitigated by the worker focus on vacation. What makes a vacation exciting for a short time could instead be used to make work more fulfilling throughout the entire year.
Page 134
Say Goodbye to Old Ways of Thinking do not draw conclusions about the future based on the past Innovative start ups are the engine for modern economies. They bring new technologies, new ideas and new concepts to the market, they maintain competitiveness, and they lead to increased productivity. On this, economic experts agree.
Page 134
Need Innovative Start ups in its country report on Germany 2005 the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor GEM points out the following innovative start ups stimulate competition, accelerate structural change and, if successful, generate growth and jobs. For a highly industrialized country like Germany, with few natural resources, they are the key variable for international competitiveness. Consequently Germany must intensify its efforts to increase innovation, in particular to foster innovative start ups, especially in knowledge intensive sectors.

@Super artificial intelligence doctor system. 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.

Day 29 of Commenting Phase and sharing with my Co contestants to use it and refine their projects and ideas
The first intelligent step in the direction of entrepreneurship is not to identify where we could earn money, but rather to discover what ideas and visions of our own we can generate. Entrepreneurship has the potential to be much more than self employment a passion, a journey of self discovery, evens a calling; a challenge to commit yourself to your own dreams, to achieve self realization in your work and to accomplish something great. Achieving economic success will follow, because what we do out of inner conviction and with all our strength will be work of the highest quality we are capable of. Recent neurobiological research even suggests that what we do with passion enhances the quality of certain brain functions. To begin with, there has to be an idea. What is missing where? What do I want to improve? What am I shooting for?

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

Day 31 of Commenting Phase and sharing with my Co contestants to use it and refine their projects and ideas
Muhammad Yunus is a good example. His Grameen Bank with its microcredit revolutionized the understanding and practice of granting loans. Prior to Yunus, the poor were not deemed creditworthy but, perhaps even more importantly, they were not profitable customers for the banks even if they did repay their loans, because in the conventional banking system very small loans created a disproportionately high administrative burden. And of course no one believed that the poor possessed the skills needed by entrepreneurs. Yunus created a totally new approach, proving that the poor are a good credit risk and that it is possible to create a system that is mostly self financing that charges and collects interest and is applicable internationally. Anyone familiar with the Yunus story knows that he began with a loan of about 27 dollars, a ridiculously small sum by our standards, to help 42 women achieve micro entrepreneurship i.e. a little bit more than 50 cents per project, and that without exception all the borrowers repaid their loans.
Day 32 of Commenting Phase and sharing with my Co contestants to use it and refine their projects and ideas
Must you be Born an Entrepreneur?
Do you have to be born an entrepreneur? It is a widespread view that an entrepreneur must possess a whole array of personality traits if he wants to be successful. Assertiveness, self sufficiency (high internal locus of control, business skills and expertise, tenacity, rhetorical ability, and more. This all sounds very reasonable. Nonetheless, it is not true. There have been numerous empirical studies, particularly in the USA, which ask what personality traits make a successful entrepreneur. It turned out in these studies that there is no empirical evidence for these apparently reasonable character traits. Surprisingly, the traits approach shows no specific traits for successful startup entrepreneurs. In spite of intensive research it has not yet been possible to identify either a single personality trait or a composite of character traits by which you could predict either start up activities or their success. There are no predetermined character traits for startup entrepreneurs that would permit a prediction of their business success. The notion that qualities like assertiveness and leadership skills evolve over time is not unreasonable, but it would be wrong to regard these traits as the basis for success and assume that they are indispensible from the start. It follows that many more individuals are qualified to become business founders than is generally thought, and we can cast the net much wider when it comes to thinking about a broader, more open entrepreneurial culture. Entrepreneurship is not a specialized field accessible to only the few and with entrée only through a set of special skills. No exceptional traits are required up front for you to succeed as a founder.

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

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

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

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

With Brains versus Capital book you will whimsically find these answers

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

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

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

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

9.3 Social Entrepreneurship

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

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

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

@ Super artificial intelligence doctor system. Once more your idea is impressive. To add to my earlier comment on your idea, I am sharing with you how to create a winning business model.

What Is a Business Model, Really

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

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

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

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

Three Characteristics of a Good Business Model

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

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

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

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

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

I hope that you find this useful.

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

So your idea is very nice,i wondered why you have not been voted for and i decided to take the first step to vote for you because am not only in this competition to win but i am also here to help out through my voting, on ideas that could be very useful to the society.This is the next step for humanity in terms of medical technology.You made mention on the fact that your medial instrument checks out for the next illness one was going to experience with accuracy after a previous illness.That is nice, considering the fact that once can be cured of malaria not knowing that he also has a hidden corona then he/she is let out of the hospital because he/she has shown no symptom of corona and if i get you right, your aim is to discover hidden illnesses with higher accuracy. If yes, then you will need help from international medical bodies not only in your country because this is something you need to show the whole whole world.So i suggest you focus on implementing your idea because it really aids the medical area.Notwithstanding,i would appreciate if you check out my idea,vote and tell me what you think about my idea in the comment section.Here is a link to get to my idea:

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

Day 26
An Example Making Toothbrushes Cheaper
Not far from Bonn is a factory that makes most of the toothbrushes sold in Germany. A number of well known brands have their toothbrushes made for them there. You, too, can have your toothbrushes manufactured there and sell them under your own name or under some other fancy name. Get together with your friends and acquaintances and start a Toothbrush Campaign. You know that toothbrushes should not be used too long otherwise they will damage your teeth, no matter how expensive or scientific their design. You yourself need at least ten toothbrushes a year. So your own circle of friends and acquaintances is sufficient for a small campaign. Why should your friends buy their toothbrushes from you? You can already figure it out. Not because you are attractive and likeable and can talk your friends into buying them from you, but because naturally your toothbrushes are much cheaper than the toothbrushes they are buying for themselves, even at the discount store. Materials and production cost almost nothing. Toothbrushes become expensive because of the advertising to develop the brand and sales.

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.

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

@Super artificial intelligence doctor system. Your idea is innovative. To add to your solution, I suggest you consider the follwing questions to help and refine your idea for successful implementation:

What will you do different from what others in the same business are doing
How do you intend to proffer solution to your identified problem
How will you get your target customers to learn about your business
How do you intend to make money from your business
How will you sustain your business
What means or tools do you need to implement my idea?
Which are my potential collaborators, investors?

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

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.

Great [email protected] artificial intelligence doctor system. Your idea helping people to live a healthy by diagnosing early any sickness is laudable. In addition to your solution, I suggest you consider the following:
1. Market research to understand the market dynamics around this idea
2. You can collaborate with the ministry of health and doctors

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.
