Explain your project in details:

SMART LC is a vending machine that automatically verifies all the required data of the student from the college/university server and prints Leaving/Transfer certificate or any other documents needed by the students. A leaving/transfer certificate is a document which signifies that the student have left the institute/University on account of various reasons (mainly due to the academic course is completed.) . . . . AIM:- To provide hard copy of any document to a student within a minute. It also displays pending dues and documents status. It is a one touch solution for all problems. . . . . NEED:- 80% Indian institutes only provide hard copy of documents & certificates, but completing the procedure is very time-consuming as it requires a lot of paperwork which brings extreme pressure on staff and students. Apart from that, there is also wastage of paper as paperwork require bundles of document copies. So we came up an idea of getting these documents and certificates through a machine. This project can complete 2-3 days of task in a minute and there will be no need of paperwork as all the verification process will be done by the machine. . . . . COMPONENTS:- screen Touch LCD display, Printer, Central unit, Input device for authentication (e.g. biometric, keypad, barcode scanner). . . . . WORKING:- Students have to verify their identity through input devices. Then select which document they want. If the all criteria are completed then the document will be printed, but if any criteria is pending then guidelines will be shown to fulfill the criteria (if the criteria cannot be completed on the machine, e.g. paying the library fee). If the pending criteria can be completed on the machine itself, then students have to follow steps and complete the criteria through the touch screen display. Once, all the conditions are fulfilled students can get their document.

Impact of your enterprise on sustainable development

APPLICATIONS:- It is beneficial for all students, teachers and staff of every college, institute, University and schools. . . . . BENEFITS:- 1) Super time saving. For example, if a paper-work procedure takes 4 hours to complete each day, then this project will reduce this time to few minutes. 2) Staff burden is reduced as there will be few paper-work. 3) Sustainable and convenient. 4) All the conditions should be compulsory fulfilled for each document. 5) Daily use 6) secured 7) Easy installation and user friendly 8) One time investment 9) No staff interference 10) As, there is no staff interference, therefore, it prevents hand to hand contact. So, it is extremely beneficial during this pandemic situation. 11) In every country, according to each University, this project can be fully customized. . . . . NOTE: It is not suitable for those institutions where no hard copy of certificates & documents provided; only soft copy is provided. . . . . IMPACT ON SDG: It will hugely impact on SDG 9 goal as it will definitely provide job opportunities to newcomers, especially to the marketers and software developers. It will heavily impact on the staff and facilities as it will save immense of time so that they can invest it on other work. For example, if a person is assigned with a task to verify all the documents and data of the final year students; it would take 2-3 hours to finish the task. Whereas, our machine will complete the task in a minute. So just imagine 10 people are saving 2-3 hours every day, then so much time will be saved. We are also paving our path towards SDG 7 and SDG 13 goals. Our product does not emit any kind of gas or heat nor it consumes high power. It prevents thousands of papers from being wasted. . . . . ACHIEVEMENTS:- Till now we have achieved in promoting our project in different states of our country through exhibitions and competitions.

Sustainability and future plans

BUSINESS PLAN:- Currently we are improving our project to advance level and looking for some funding. Our main financing source is BOOTSTRAPING, since our initial requirements is small. Our second option for funding will be government programs and investors. We expect to create a start-up by next year, if we collect appropriate funding. I will start the company in partnership with my four colleagues, who are also co-owner of this project. Our type of business will be B2A. The MAIN OBJECTIVE of our business is procurement of required parts, buying metal structures from metal fabricator and programming the software according institute's criteria. We will sell the product on both offline & online market. We will also provide maintenance service. After evaluating all the conditions like manufacturing cost and production cost, our SELLING PRICE will be approximately Rs. 40,000 (531.24 USD) in India. We guarantee that for a few decades our product will work, until all universities and institute provide only soft copy of documents.

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.

My dear friend @Kar, 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.

Greetings from Kazakhstan! I have found some interesting materials, and I would like to share them with you

1) Undoubtedly, funds will be needed for you (as you already said) to complete this wonderful idea on a full scale. I would like to advise international funds such as The Common Fund for Commodities (CFC), Call for Proposals: Actions to Boost the Development of Finance Markets for Social Enterprises GroFin: Small and Growing Business Fund. You can also take part in contests such as School Enterprise Challenge: Join the movement to build Business Skills!
2) I would recommend you to read a number of books that will contribute significantly to your knowledge about business. They are "The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People: Restoring the Character Ethic" by Stephen R. Covey, "How to Make Big Money in Your Own Small Business: Unexpected Rules Every Small Business Owner Needs to Know" by Jeffrey J. Fox, and "Think and Grow Rich" by Napoleon Hill

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.

It is an amazing idea you have.
Excerpt from Brain vs capital
You are perhaps wondering why homely business models like Gottlieb Duttweilers Swiss grocery chain Migros, our own Tea Campaign, or Holger Johnsons Ebuero have enjoyed such resounding success? Ultimately they are all typical of simple but well thought out concepts.

Would really appreciate your vote. Thanks

Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.

Success doesn't just find you. You have to go out and get it.

Your idea is great and very practical.

What role does the concept play in founding a company? Neither the research on entrepreneurship nor the practical advice given to startup entrepreneurs places much weight on the underlying idea. Ideas are a dime a dozen. What could an idea be worth anyway?

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 :)

Building a thriving community
Today we engaged a campaign on underage drinking 'tap a beer from your tablet' it reached more than 40 likes and about 15 bar tenders and 5 retail shops were reached with UN global SDGs awareness of responsible drinking to sustainable development at my local area.
These initiative was aimed to reach my local community with information about sustainable mobile tap bartending cart and create awareness of SDGs that will enable them to become responsible drinking ambassadors!
We mobile tap bartending cart are committed to ensuring the responsible enjoyment of alcohol,like many others, we know this product can be misused hence our strategic initiatives to promote responsible drinking in our community at local slums as this will allow us to gain important insights and to positively impact more people with our idea project and campaigns on responsible use of alcohol.
By the way we wish to ask for your support and take this initiative to the next level and build thriving communities!

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 day, and keep it up!

Faced with the growing mountain of books on entrepreneurship, why should you read this one? The answer is simple: because it is so different. So plausible. So helpful. It makes you want to reach for the stars, not for the aspirin.

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 is great. It takes just one idea/project to transform the world. As you keep working hard towards your dreams and to add your quota in the improvement of the world, I wish you the very best. Thank you very much for implementing this wonderful idea.

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

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

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

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

Thank you!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Your idea is great!

If someone in a leadership position sees their role as "just a job", it turns out. To be an effective leader, you need the right motivation. Is it money or the status you care about, or do you sincerely want to inspire people to do their best?

Social distancing during this post-crisis pandemic implies many painful losses in our society,among them are the restaurants, bars, gyms, houses of worship, barber shops and other places we frequent that are neither work nor home.Mobile tap bartending initiative concept in social entrepreneur recognizes the roles these semi-public, semi-private places play in fostering social association, community identity and civic engagement.In giving people a familiar setting for social interaction among regulars with the new norm we encourage place attachment- that is, the bond between a person and a place.experiencing the crisis from the fortress of our living spaces, we may enjoy the feeling of being in a haven that protects against this invisible new enemy together,for honestly we have lost the social and psychological intimacy in our community, it is a significant loss that contributes to a healthy and flourishing society.This places fulfill needs for social interaction, gatherings, assisting with important celebrations in society. They also provide trainings and employment, community involvement through sponsored fundraising event's as a way of supporting charities and act as our local neighbours giving back to local community, while some focus on hiring individuals that might otherwise find it difficult to be hired elsewhere.They connect with our communities by sourcing ingredients from our local farms and dairies tooStaff and regulars are part of the scene here and so are strangers.While not as diverse or accessible as public spaces,mobile tap bartending caet will rely on a certain amount of heterogeneity to convey social importance and bring vitality into our sustainable community in this way complementing public spaces like parks, plazas, playgrounds, streets and sidewalks which are free and open places that offers contact,cooperation and even conflict with a range of mostly unknown people.hence,if public spaces expand our social relationships and liberize our world view,this initiative bartending cart will anchor us to a community where we are recognized and our needs accommodated as community in whole.Third places are predictable and comfortable, a setting where we will all feel at home!

[email protected] Smart LC, 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 comments are important.

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

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

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

I hope you will derive some benefits from this.

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

Best of luck in your implementation.

August 24, 2020 06:54

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

August 24, 2020 03:24

Thank u so much Olutobi Osanaiye for such inspiring and motivating words. Your words really inspired me a lot. Hope you achieve all your goals. All the best for your future!

August 24, 2020 03:20

Thank u so much New Resolution for such inspiring and motivating words. I will definitely read your idea. Hope you achieve all your goals. All the best for your future!

August 22, 2020 17:52

Dear @SMART LC. 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.

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 17:55

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.

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.

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.

Once [email protected] LC your project is innovative. 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.
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/

August 14, 2020 14:53

@SMART LC. 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 form 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 friend to 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

August 14, 2020 13:42

@SMART LC, Your unique selling proposition (USP) is unlikely to be purely your social mission. You need to find a way to capture how your social mission is related to the quality of your product, which is not always easy or straightforward, and good luck with your idea.

August 9, 2020 18:36

Most social entrepreneurs think big, and that\'s a good thing. You\'re someone who wants to impact the world in the most meaningful way possible. wish you best of luck

August 4, 2020 18:19

After reading about the project you proposed, I would like to say that it is a wonderful and fantastic project that support students' growth as it goes in line with the goals of the United Nation.

The Sdg's are a collection of 17 global goals designed to be a blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. Please try to enrol for the Brain Versus Capital Course and also the Sustainable Entrepreneurship Course in the campus so as to make your project environmentally, socially and economically sustainable.

Please vote and comment for my idea too in the campus community "Promoting a healthy lifestyle" (https://www.entrepreneurship-campus.org/ideas/26/18364) as it aims to achieve SDG 1, 2, 3 and 8

August 4, 2020 03:26

While embarking on a quest to change the world may feel lonely, it is important to remember that social entrepreneurship is a team sport, and other people are willing to help. Social entrepreneurs need to stay open and attentive to potential partnership and collaboration opportunities. In many cases, collaborative initiatives and joint-ventures can achieve social/business goals much more effectively than solo endeavors.

August 1, 2020 16:28

We really enjoyed reading about your idea! Even the fact that you took interest in a global issue and took the initiative to better the community around you is outstanding, and you should be proud.

With the pandemic hindering in-person collaboration, we wanted to share some resources that personally helped our team in working together remotely. ProfiConf grants you access to HD video conferences in a browser, while platforms like Campfire and TeamViewer allows for efficient online collaboration. Hopefully, this helps!

If you have time, we would really appreciate it if you could take a look at our idea and vote for it/comment on it: https://www.entrepreneurship-campus.org/ideas/28/18345/

Keep up the great work!

Day 22
As a budding 2020 Citizen Entrepreneurship Contestant from Nigeria South South Nigeria Region I love my idea and project Electricity for Everyone because I seek out to ask many questions than answers, I am 100 percent focus and self discipline, critical thinker, networker, innovator while my major duty now is to help young people across mother Earth to start developing their inherent entrepreneurial skills and talents towards realizing our 17 sustainable development goals and join me now to ask many questions across our 2020 platform
Holger Johnson is just such a multi founder. In addition to Ebuero AG, he has established, co founded or functioned as a business angel actively engaged in the development of about 20 other companies. How does he do it? He concentrates on the entrepreneurial design, from which he formulates objectives and tasks and then supervises their execution. In this way he uses his head and his time in the area in which he excels. He knows full well that he must not permit too much complexity in his entrepreneurial design work. A high degree of complexity would increase susceptibility to error and require more decision making on his part; it would sap more of his energy and divert his attention from the areas where his best talents lie and from what he most enjoys. Campus members use this in your idea or project
I want all to reflect on it
Day 23
Successful companies originate in the mind. The better an entrepreneurial concept is and the more it is
analyzed and fine tuned, the more it will resemble a finished work of art and the more likely it is to be
successful.
I want all to reflect on it
Day 24
Dorothee is the daughter of a colleague of mine. She was an English major but did not want to become a
teacher. In her free time she creates vases, large ceramic pieces. She asked me whether she could not
make a little business out of this. I asked her a whole series of questions. Did she really enjoy doing it?
Did she enjoy it so much that she could imagine doing it over the long term? Are people willing to buy
these vases with their own money? And much more. Dorothee explained that she really did enjoy
working on her ceramics. That there are people who are buying her vases already and that she is earning
money with them, even when she calculates all her expenses and her own work time. And that if she
wanted to, she could ask for more money.
This did not sound bad. In fact, it sounded very convincing. Dorothee would probably be happier with her
vases than she would be working as a teacher in a job she disliked. My advice do it. Do not let yourself
be dissuaded bet on your artistic talent.
I ran into her again a few months later. Curious, I ask her about her business. I am not suited to be a
business person, she tells me. How so? I ask, amazed. Dorothee explains that she took a course in
starting a business, but I failed the balance sheet analysis.
Balance sheet analysis is something valuable. Nobody who wants to understand the financial situation of
a major company like Siemens can skip the balance sheet analysis. But what Dorothee needed is not a
balance sheet analysis. What she needs to know is whether her work is generating enough income.
Every street kid in Manila, every woman in Bangladesh who gets a microcredit from the Grameen Bank,
has the business smarts for this, without formal business administration concepts and techniques. A
formal requirement just frightens people off, especially creative, artistically inclined people. The start-up
consultant would have given better advice if he had simple told Dorothee to collect the receipts for her
expenses and her income and take them to a bookkeeper, or to pay a student to do her income tax
return. With Dorothee, a promising business founder was derailed because of an incompetent startup
consultant.
I want all to reflect on it
Day 25
Getting rid of the fanciful ideas
And where was the campfire? Much too dangerous. The artistic performances? Could you do a somersault in your confirmation suit? Any fanciful ideas had been taken away from the children before they were even aware of it. The concept of the adventure restaurant was dead on arrival.
I want all to reflect on it
Day 26
An Example Making Toothbrushes Cheaper
Not far from Bonn is a factory that makes most of the toothbrushes sold in Germany. A number of well known brands have their toothbrushes made for them there. You, too, can have your toothbrushes manufactured there and sell them under your own name or under some other fancy name. Get together with your friends and acquaintances and start a Toothbrush Campaign. You know that toothbrushes should not be used too long otherwise they will damage your teeth, no matter how expensive or scientific their design. You yourself need at least ten toothbrushes a year. So your own circle of friends and acquaintances is sufficient for a small campaign. Why should your friends buy their toothbrushes from you? You can already figure it out. Not because you are attractive and likeable and can talk your friends into buying them from you, but because naturally your toothbrushes are much cheaper than the toothbrushes they are buying for themselves, even at the discount store. Materials and production cost almost nothing. Toothbrushes become expensive because of the advertising to develop the brand and sales.
I want all to reflect on it
Day 27
Once you have the concept, you go on to researching and identifying appropriate components. This, too, does not have to become a full time job. Do not be satisfied with the first supplier to come along, just because you are happy to have found a component. Inquire, research, investigate, compare. Finally, you are ready to coordinate the components. This, too, is a manageable task where concepts are simple and straightforward.
Under these conditions illustrated in the examples described above founding a company can actually be a kind of part-time job. Launching a company with a safety net, so to speak. Do not give up your day job, your old occupation, until your own idea concept proves to be sound and sustainable. Wait for your concept to prove itself. Do not put all your money on one card, but establish your business on a carefully considered and securely solid basis. It is not true that the fast devour the slow in every situation, but those who are well prepared and work with professional partners will succeed over those who are excitable, overworked and try to organize everything in house.
I want all to reflect on it
Today, I motivate you to make use of my comment and also share with others in the platform so as to learn and improve your idea and project for successful startups and SDGs realization. I share it freely with others ideas and projects so as to join all in achieving our 2020 target in our entrepreneur campus.
I urge everyone today to freely and blissfully cast their votes and comments to my idea and project Electricity for Everyone and this is a link to my idea thanks a lot

Once again this is a fantastic project @SMART LC. In addition, to my previous comment on your project, I am sharing with you what can help you refine your idea for success.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Thank you so much Ahmed Abdallah for the advice. I will definitely think about it. I am a beginner in this field, any such advice related to business will really help me

My advice Start small and build momentum, Being a social entrepreneur can be very difficult, you are constantly in a field dominated by changing dynamics, you will often face business challenges, and you have to start small and build your enterprise from the ground up. You must be resilient, realistic, and passionate about your goals and the impact you are trying to achieve.

Fantastic project @ smart LC Your project is quite innovative assisting students to efficiently carry out their assignmemnts and printing documents. however, I will like to include in your solution the following:
your market
scalability plans
your model
your collaborators etc.

Lastly, I suggest you consider taking the online training as these courses are designed to teach young people the basic principles of entrepreneurship and the core of what it means to create and become an entrepreneur.

Well-done and best of luck in your implementation

Thank u so much swapnali for your compliment. Answering to your questions:

Will any record be kept ?
Yes, once a student take the LC, it will be automatically recorded on the server along with exact date and time and the staff can watch this record on the website.

Can a student take leaving certificate twice ?
No, once the student takes LC, it will be record on the institue server. If next time students comes to take the LC then only a notification is shown that,
'Your LC has already been printed.' and the student cannot take the LC.

Although, a student can get duplicate LC. For that the student have to inform to the concerned staff and then the staff have to edit the student's data in the website. Then the student can get duplicate LC but with a duplicate mark on it.

Thank u so much Apurba for your compliment. Answering to your questions:

Can a student take travelling concession before the selected date ?

No, once the student selects desired month for example 3 months then immediately a timer will start for 3 months and unless the timer ends, the students cannot get the consession.

Will it provide LC to the students who leave at half term ?

Yes, it can, but before that student have to complete other formalities like giving a letter to the principle and paying the pending fees.
Once these formalities are done, the staff will do certain changes in the student's data and then the student can get the LC. Note that remark and reason for leaving institute will be different.

Really loved your idea. It will definitely help every student in every college of our country. I would really appreciate if this project is installed in all institute, colleges and Universities.
But I have a doubt, is there any record kept ?

July 6, 2020 13:29

Yes Blossom Odor, apart from school and universities we can definitely use this machine in offices, especially at government officies, banks, public and private companies, and many more. Thank you so much for your complement.

July 6, 2020 13:24

Wonderful idea. There is a lot of bureacractic process in the university system. Moving of files from one office to another in the university or public service and I believe this your idea should not be applicable only to schools but every human resources offices where file are still be moved from one office to another. It is quite time consuming

Hi Blossom Odor ! Thank you so much for your suggestion and I really liked your idea. We will definitely implement your idea in our machine. Can you please tell me more about this problem because I am unaware about this issue.

June 9, 2020 20:07

Hey Bertrand! Firstly, our machine does not verify any soft document, it just check whether all the documents / data states have been uploaded with complete status from the institute server. Now the machine will perform its work based on these conditions.

Now coming to fake documents - In India, during the admission process all the hardcopy of documents are checked manually by the staff of the institute & if everything is correct then only its uploaded on the institute server with a complete status.

Now this procedure might be different in different countries, so we have to customize according to that. If you have any suggestions then please feel free to tell.

Though I am about to write my first certificate exams but I have heard several stories about delay in the receipt of certificates . Some can stay asucj as 5 year after graduation. This idea if implemented will solve this challenge

Wow! This is a brilliant project. But how does it cope with those fake or forged soft documents??
Am asking if you have thought about those who can forge or make fake documents, so can your machine be able to identify it??
