Gobar gar renewable energy

Stage of Idea start-up stage

Explain your idea in details:

Biogas is the mixture of gases produced by the breakdown of organic matter in the absence of oxygen, primarily consisting of methane and carbon dioxide. In India, it is also known as "Gobar Gas". Biogas can be produced from raw materials such as agricultural waste, manure, municipal waste, plant material, sewage, green waste or food waste. Gobar gad is produced by anaerobic digestion with methanogen or anaerobic organisms, which digest material inside a closed system, or fermentation of biodegradable materials. This closed system is called an anaerobic digester, biodigester or a bioreactor. This energy release allows biogas to be used as a fuel. it can be used for any heating purpose, such as cooking. It can also be used in a gas engine to convert the energy in the gas into electricity and heat. Biogas can be compressed after removal of Carbon dioxide, the same way as natural gas is compressed to CNG, and used to power motor vehicles. In the United Kingdom, for example, biogas is estimated to have the potential to replace around 17% of vehicle fuel. It qualifies for renewable energy subsidies in some parts of the world. Also cleaned and upgraded to natural gas standards, when it becomes bio-methane and considered to be a renewable resource because its production-and-use cycle is continuous, and it generates no net carbon dioxide. As the organic material grows, it is converted and used. It then regrows in a continually repeating cycle. From a carbon perspective, as much carbon dioxide is absorbed from the atmosphere in the growth of the primary bio-resource as is released, when the material is ultimately converted to energy

Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development

Gobar gas can be used for electricity production on sewage works, in a CHP gas engine, where the waste heat from the engine is conveniently used for heating the digester, space heating; water heating and process heating. If compressed, it can replace compressed natural gas for use in vehicles. Gobar gas for home cooking is transferred to the cooking place like kitchen from the digester through a tube. Except electricity, biogas when compared to other fuels produces less pollution while cooking. Need not wait for the heat after ignition. It produces instantly. By product of biogas is used as fertilizer. It helps in producing indoor light. And also for electricity external combustion engine When biogas is combusted externally Stirling motor is heated. It is heated with the help of heat exchanger. On the expansion of gas in the Stirling motor electricity is generated. Since their efficiency is low and are expensive, their use is limited. Internal combustion engine Gas motors, gas turbines and diesel engines are some example. It helps in agriculture as the by product of biogas helps in the production of organic fertilizers.

Plans for implementation and sustainability

The purpose of industrial biogas production is the collection of biomethane, usually for fuel. Industrial biogas is produced either. As landfill gas (LFG), which is produced by the breakdown of biodegradable waste inside a landfill due to chemical reactions and microbes, or As digested gas, produced inside an anaerobic digester. an anaerobic digester that treats farm wastes or energy crops. It can be produced using anaerobic digesters (air-tight tanks with different configurations). These plants can be fed with energy crops such as maize silage or biodegradable wastes including sewage sludge and food waste. During the process, the micro-organisms transform biomass waste into biogas (mainly methane and carbon dioxide) and digestate. Higher quantities of gas can be produced when the wastewater is co-digested with other residuals from the dairy industry, sugar industry, or brewery industry. For example, while mixing 90% of wastewater from beer factory with 10% cow whey, the production of gas was increased by 2.5 times compared to the biogas produced by wastewater from the brewery only. High levels of methane are produced when manure is stored under anaerobic conditions. During storage and when manure has been applied to the land, nitrous oxide is also produced as a byproduct of the denitrification process. Using of biogas helps in reducing pollution and makes eco-friendly environment. It reduces global warming. It is a cheap and affordable technology. Also, it can be used as transportation fuel.

Your profile

I am now 17 years old, doing my college in Electrical Engineering. I was born in a village of Nagpur and had both my primary and secondary education there. As I was educated in villages, I understand the situation of the rural students what they suffer from, what are their problems. They do not have access to good teachers specially for mathematics and science. Most of the students are very afraid of mathematical problems and cram mathematical solutions. Unlike urban students, they even do not have access to lots of competitions for self-evaluation. In 2007, while I realized that I have to do something for my villages. Therefore, I formed a small team with my school friends.I love to the self taught and to modified some innovation or recreate old innovation that impulse me even more and to devise alternative solution start from smallest to create project with greater social impact than even development I am able to collaborate with all society across different cultural, country, language I am intrastate in helping community to promote healthy living and improving aspect of life standard

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.

Throughout our entrepreneurship journey, we always found it helpful to create lean and business model canvases to brainstorm our ideas. Since your idea centers on meeting an educational need in your community, we thought that Javelin Board Beta might be helpful! This helps entrepreneurs by providing lean/business model canvas templates that match your goal (e.g. identifying customer needs, validating new products, or reaching product-market fit). We hope lean canvases like this help you in organizing your deliverables and goals as much as it did for us!

If you have time, we would really appreciate it if you could 1 comment on our project entry at entrepreneurship-campus.org/ideas/28/18345/

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!

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

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

The Seven Questions

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Dear, I hope this helps in you to peach your business as much as possible and get the necessary funding for your project.
Best wishes in this journey and in your implementation. Stay positive on the competition. It teaches us a lot of things to keep us sailing to the beach.

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....
For more information please do not hesitate to contact me via my email [email protected] and follow me on Twitter @oneyoungperson / Good luck with your work and wishing you all the success on your journey. Please try to keep in touch.

Thanks!

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 :)

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 the 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.

We recently found some useful tools for market research, and we wanted to share them with you! Jim Vileta Business Research Launchpad is a repository of resources organized by industry (e.g. healthcare, finance, etc): https://www.d.umn.edu/~jvileta/entrepreneurship.html
We found this helpful in strengthening our questionnaire and survey construction, and it helped us develop a stronger framework overall for our business plans. Sites like archive.org also have millions of free resources and datasets open to the public.

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

Have a nice weekend, and keep it up!

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!

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?

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] Akash, 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

Greetings! Again best of luck to everyone!and here share encouraging words with all campus entrepreneurs intending to grow, it is important for us to sportively accept failures as different possibilities.As great entrepreneurs we have to do this and tell others they need not worry about failures.In fact the best of entrepreneurs do follow their ideas/projects at the cost of repeated failures,because every missed steps will get us closer to success.we must be willing to take certain risks,so that we learn from our mistakes and become capable enough to answer questions correctly to make investors feel comfortable with our dedicated ideas/projects.This shows us why if someone approaches us as entrepreneurs in future with an idea's project,we wun't immediately reject it as ineffective but work together in an innovative way by permitting him/her to think around the idea and determine if it really makes sense and if something goes wrong we wunt discourage that person,instead we will be grateful for learning something new,gain experience and learn from such meetings like this that linked us all here(entrepreneurshipcampus.org!)Thanks be to them again,for this campus has encouraged us all to take more risks by analyzing every aspect of that risk.You all are welcomed to view sustainable Mobile tap bartending cart,link

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.

September 2, 2020 08:27

Hello there! I came across your article and I would like to say that you have an interesting project. I admire your passion for the environment. You really have my support! I would suggest that you elaborate more on your business model and operation, as well as your revenue stream. But overall, this idea is really inspiring!
