Happiness is not something that is achieved, it is a skill that is developed and practiced daily. Mastery comes from serving others, because during our darkest moments we must focus on seeing the light.

Your idea is very smart and practical.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Greetings from Kazakhstan! Your project is extremely innovative, and I would like to offer you some specific tips.

1) In business, as in sports! Here, too, your internal attitude to this is important! Your mental attitude. If you are mentally prepared for the upcoming difficulties, ups and downs, then your business will last a long time. If you do not have money, but you decide to start your own business, then be prepared for a long journey. With money everything is easier, but without it ... You understand yourself.
2) What is your business goal? You must clearly understand why you want to do business. 'Because a friend is engaged, and the worse I am,' or do you really see a promising and unique business model, ways to implement it, usefulness for others, the reality of making a profit.
3) We calculate the risks.
- Never start a business with borrowed money if you are not sure that everything will work out for you and you will pay off your debts.
- Designate for yourself that point, beyond which you will never, under any circumstances, go.
4) Start small. No businessman started out right away with building a corporation globally. Everyone started with something small, many even without money. I think you all know these success stories. There are a lot of such people in the business environment. Never get caught up in large-scale business ideas that require a lot of initial investment. Assess your capabilities adequately. Its easy to screw up at the start. And there are also a large number of such people, just few people know them. Personally, I know many similar failures.
5) Choose the niche you are good at! Dont start your first business from scratch in an area where you dont know anything. Not everyone can be restaurateurs or fashion designers. But you may be looking to start a business with a partner who understands what you are not good at. Then you can take a chance. But again, agree on everything on the shore.
6)Go to the goal with confidence! If you are in doubt or afraid of something, then it is better not to start your own business at all. You must be confident in your abilities and that you will succeed, and also be prepared for the fact that the idea burns out. It is very important to enjoy what you are doing, and then the petty troubles in the business will be easier to bear.
7)Quality is important in business! It doesnt matter in goods or services! Never start a business if your offer is inferior in quality than existing ones on the market. Of course, by great chance you can get the first customers, but by doing so you ruin your reputation in the bud and quickly close.

I hope that my suggestions were helpful))

Last days!!!
The competition is ending but not the dream of changing the world. Believe in your potential and Keep working on your project!

Anybody can start a business Idea. The Key is to execute and sustain.
So I would recommend that you read the BLOGs and do the online trainings if you have not, just in case the information there could help you refine your idea before the final deadline 3oth October 2020.
I wish you all the best in further implementation.

Kind regards,

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

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

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

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

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

Startup UARoads

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Mailchimp is a startup with personality

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

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

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

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

We hope these tips will help you move from idea to startup faster. And the stfalcon.com studio team will be happy to help you develop MVP, design, Android and iOS applications and a website for your startup.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Mailchimp is a startup with personality

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

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

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

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

In a moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing to do, the next best thing is the wrong thing, and the worst thing you can do is nothing. Be miserable. Or motivate yourself. Whatever has to be done, it's always your choice.

Hey guys.
A business degree isn't what you need to start that business or idea.

If I had gone to business school, I never would have started the company

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

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

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

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

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

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

I hope you will derive some benefits from this.

Best of luck in your implementation.

The important thing is not being afraid to take a chance. Remember, the greatest failure is to not try. Once you find something you love to do, be the best at doing it.

Your idea is great and very practical.

My dear friend @Prachi, I honestly thank you for the support received from you on this campus. Your votes and comments on my idea and that of other campus members I suppose, have gone a long way helping to review and make our ideas solid and ready for the implementation phase. However, with these few days left for us in this campus to encourage one another on this entrepreneurship journey and with the understanding that many of us will likely launch our ideas at the end of our time in this campus; of course being what is expected of us as an outcome of the time spent on this campus, I am sharing with you yet another interesting post from one of the campus articles on What to Do Next When We are Hustling and It Still Has Not Happened for Us

First, it is natural to think that everything we plan to do with our companies and businesses will go exactly as planned. Unfortunately, most often it is the opposite. So, please understand that there is the problem with the hype about hustle. People have this mistaken belief that with enough hustle, grit, grind, tired Instagram platitude, we can achieve any outcome. But that is false. It is a nice fairytale. But it is false.
Sometimes things are not ready to happen yet because there are literally millions of other factors at play in the world that we cannot see. We cannot produce a miracle no matter how hard we hustle. So, the best is to stop trying to force things, when we find ourselves in this bridge my friends.
However, this does not mean that we should aim low, or that we should not set goals and work towards them. The problem is not with goal setting or ambition. The problem is what to do with our emotions during the in between phases, when our reality does not match our grand vision for life or for our companies and businesses.

Secondly, we must learn to become more comfortable in a state of waiting. Not hoping without planning. Not ambivalence towards the results. But simply putting in the work, then waiting for the results to come in whenever time they are ready to come.
Sometimes life just takes a while to develop, and no matter how hard we push, it is just not the right time for things to pop off for us. Force does not work as a long-term strategy for progress. Since we cannot force anything to happen, the only thing we can do is adjust our perspective. We have to change the way we think about waiting. We need to learn to shift from the mindset that associates waiting with pain and discomfort, to looking at the future with optimism and without obsessing about what we are lacking in the present.

Now what is the advice:
When our hustling does not seem to meet with our vision for our businesses and companies, we need to continue to work hard getting things done. Yes, hustle more. That is obvious. But do not obsess over timetables for when things must happen. If we do that, trust me, we will be disappointed almost every time. Friends we just need to put in the work and let life unfold.
Remember to always give the universe space to do what it can do while we do ours, let there be no high blood pressures, depression and getting worked up. And when the thing we want finally does happen for us, let it be a happy, albeit not entirely unexpected surprise. In other words, chill, and share this with a friend who needs to chill.

Dear friend, I hope this helps you in your implementation phase
Best wishes in this journey and in your implementation. Stay positive on the competition. It teaches us a lot of things to keep us sailing to the beach.

I have seen your project and I like it. What a magnificent and meritorious project conceptualized by you and your organization. All I have to say to you is these quotes I have used to support you.

Failure is simply the opportunity to begin again, this time more intelligently. A business absolutely devoted to service will have only one worry about profits. They will be embarrassingly large.

Henry Ford, founder Ford Motor Company

I have learned that mistakes can often be as good a teacher as success.

Good day friend

Your new love affair will begin completely risk free. You do not need to invest anything and there will be no lean times to get through, nor long periods of work to put behind you. Start with an idea that you have had for a long time. What irritates me about some products? Irritation is a great source of energy, according to Anita Roddick.

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.

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

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

The Seven Questions

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Hello! 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

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?

Would really appreciate your vote. Thanks

Dear fellow entrepreneur,

As we are entering the last month of this competition, I want to share with you several things that I learned throughout this whole journey.

I figured out that PURPOSE is the only thing that drives a business. When the purpose is gone, that's when growth stops. So I want to encourage all of us to go back to the basics. Ask ourselves, what drives us to start this innovation? What is our deepest desire? And why we want to do it? I hope that this piece of advice can help you as well in your journey, and wishing the best of luck for you

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

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.

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

I am very happy to be with you in this competition.

September 21, 2020 23:27

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?

September 21, 2020 00:25

When you are ready to enter the next chapter of your life, create a roadmap of how you'd like it to look, and set measurable goals and a timeframe for meeting them.

I want you to understand that your support is very important to me and the people my idea seek to serve. Once again, to add to all my other comments on your idea, I am sharing with you further tips on traits of being a successful entrepreneur and how to acquire them.

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

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

[email protected] Student Railway Concession Student Vending Machine, 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.

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 00:55

In addition, to my previous comment on your project, I am sharing with you what can help you refine your ideas and projects for success.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Best wishes in your implementation

August 22, 2020 16:39

Your idea is good and all i can wish you is best of luck because you can launch projects and ideas and take dozens of company public but you only have one shot at being party of your youth agenda. Best of luck

August 20, 2020 17:13

Dear @student railway concession recipt vending machine. 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.

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?

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

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

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

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

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

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

Page 158 - 159

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

impressive project @Student railway concession receipt vending machine. In addition to my other comments on your idea, I am sharing with you a simple business plan to help you further refine your project for a successful implementation. Please not that this plan is not quite different from the requirements of the Youth Citizen Entrepreneurship Competition.

TARGET CUSTOMERS: What type of people will purchase your products or services
FUNDING REQUIRED: How much money do you need to start the business

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

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

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

Best of luck in your implementation.

August 12, 2020 18:13

@Student railway concession receipt vending machine. 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 friends 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 9, 2020 18:35

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

I Emmanuel/Ekpenyong want to share with you vital comment that will help you to refined your idea and comment to a successful implementation.

Day 28 of Commenting Phase and sharing with my Co contestants to use it and refine their projects and ideas
The Idea of Building with Bottles

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

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

Day 30 of Commenting Phase and sharing with my Co contestants to use it and refine their projects and ideas
Above all, you want to create something you are proud of. That has always been my philosophy of business. I can honestly say that I have never gone into any business purely to make money. If that is the sole motive, then I believe you are better off doing nothing, commented Virgin founder Richard Branson. A business has to be involving; it has to be fun, and it has to exercise your creative instincts.

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

Day 33 of Commenting Phase and sharing with my Co contestants to use it and refine their projects and ideas

Gradually little entrepreneurial concepts started peeling out of the group. A number of the students rode motor scooters and had financial problems when their scooters were in the repair shop. Could not you fix them yourself? Not really, but there were friends and acquaintances who could help you. The idea of a scooter repair shop was taking form. A number of the students had already purchased replacement parts and tried to put them in themselves. Now they could buy these parts together, maybe at a wholesaler, and save money. Another member of the group chimed in, Every time I want to drink a cola it is awfully expensive. But we could drink our own colas at the repair friends stop by, we could sell those cola much cheaper than at the stand. A scooter repair shop with beverage service
Day 34 of Commenting Phase and sharing with my Co contestants to use it and refine their projects and ideas
Attempts to determine through tests who are suited to be a business founder have also been fruitless. The evidence suggests that the skills we ascribe to founders arise only through the process, that is, in the course of running the business. I can confirm this from my own observations. More than once I have seen that people without apparent promise have turned out to be exceptional at starting up their own companies. Convinced that they have a well thought out and dynamic concept, they put it into practice with great will and tenacity.

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

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.

Campus members did you know that in 7 3 Compose Your Company?

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

An Example Making Toothbrushes Cheaper

Not far from Bonn is a factory that makes most of the toothbrushes sold in Germany. A number of well known
brands have their toothbrushes made for them there. You, too, can have your toothbrushes
manufactured there and sell them under your own name or under some other fancy name. Get together
with your friends and acquaintances and start a Toothbrush Campaign. You know that toothbrushes
should not be used too long otherwise they will damage your teeth, no matter how expensive or
scientific their design. You yourself need at least ten toothbrushes a year. So your own circle of friends
and acquaintances is sufficient for a small campaign. Why should your friends buy their toothbrushes
from you? You can already figure it out. Not because you are attractive and likeable and can talk your
friends into buying them from you, but because naturally your toothbrushes are much cheaper than the
toothbrushes they are buying for themselves, even at the discount store. Materials and production cost
almost nothing. Toothbrushes become expensive because of the advertising to develop the brand and
sales.
How should you sell your toothbrushes? Set up an online shop so that the acquaintances of your
acquaintances can buy a year is supply, or else you can distribute the toothbrushes in person when you
go for a visit. Do not be afraid that your friends will laugh at you. They will only do that at the beginning
before they understand the concept. After that, they will either be green with envy or they will immediately
start looking for a product to use for a little campaign of their own. If you brush your teeth with an
electric toothbrush and we hope you do the enterprise will pay off that much faster. You have certainly
already been irritated at how expensive those little brushes for the top of the hand piece are. Ideally you
should sell the motor right along with it. It should be rugged and have a long service life, and the device
should be designed with sensor technology that adjusts the pressure on the teeth, which is usually too
strong. In this way you will have eliminated the problem created by brand name electric toothbrush
manufacturers, which is that a different toothbrush head must be purchased for every brand of electric
toothbrush.
Now you start to think of a brand name. Take Green for example. Yes, Green. You cannot call your
electric toothbrush Braun Brown Braun is the name of a famous German company with a reputation
for high quality products. But Green maybe you could. To be safe, look for someone whose name is
Green and name your company after him. Keep looking under Green in the telephone book until
you find someone who is willing to go along with this experiment. If when you try to register the name,
they tell you that the name Green is not allowed, bring a legal action. If the brand Brown is allowed,
Green has to be permitted too. What I am really trying to say here is that you should choose a
memorable name that is as simple as possible and not let yourself be dissuaded too quickly by
statements like That would not work or There is one like that already.
The Tea Campaign never had any difficulty buying good quality tea, not even when the tea merchants
tried to use their market power against us and attempted to influence tea producers to stop selling to
us.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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 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.

Once again this is a fantastic project @Students railway concession receipt vending machine. 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

@Student railway concession receipt vending machine. 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.

Campus members did you know, Muhammad Yunus, winner of the Peace Nobel Prize, is a serial entrepreneur in the social sphere? The Grameen Bank with its micro credits is only one of the many enterprises he has promoted. They include the solar energy company Grameen Shakti, as well as Grameen Phone, already a telecommunications giant, and Grameen Danone, a joint venture for the production of fortified yogurt, designed to make up for nutritional deficiencies typical among Bangladeshis rural population. The Grameen group even includes an investment company. Yunus uses the tools of capitalism because he is convinced that it is possible to use our economic system more efficiently than it is being used today. Anyone who has ever had anything to do with him perceives him as relaxed, amiable, totally present and not overburdened, even if his multiplicity of projects and duties would lead you to expect that.

Day 16

Campus members did you know, from 4 10
Successful Companies Originate in the Mind?

Did you know developing a good entrepreneurial concept is a challenge, whether it is the result of arduous work or cheerful contemplation? Many paths are traveled better in ones head than with ones feet. Sometimes one needs as much as ten years and 50,000 pieces of information before an entrepreneurial concept is born, notes Professor Simon of Carnegie Mellon University. Simons experience should not frighten us, but it demonstrates that a well thought out idea is not a trivial and fleeting thing that gains substance only after it has been implemented through business administration.

Day 17

Campus members did you know,

Small is Beautiful was a famous book title from the 1960s, but its subtitle was even better? Economics
as if People Mattered. We need an economy where people play the decisive role one that places the advancement of mankind at its center.

Day 18

Campus members did you know you can simply apply the quote below and use for improving your idea and project

If I had gone to business school,
I never would have started the company.

ANITA RODDICK

That is simply mean that you can become a successful start up without you going to business school.

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

Day 19

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

Dorothee is the daughter of a colleague of mine. She was an English major but did not want to become a
teacher. In her free time she creates vases, large ceramic pieces. She asked me whether she could not
make a little business out of this. I asked her a whole series of questions. Did she really enjoy doing it?
Did she enjoy it so much that she could imagine doing it over the long term? Are people willing to buy
these vases with their own money? And much more. Dorothee explained that she really did enjoy
working on her ceramics. That there are people who are buying her vases already and that she is earning
money with them, even when she calculates all her expenses and her own work time. And that if she
wanted to, she could ask for more money.
This did not sound bad. In fact, it sounded very convincing. Dorothee would probably be happier with her
vases than she would be working as a teacher in a job she disliked. My advice do it. Do not let yourself
be dissuaded bet on your artistic talent.
I ran into her again a few months later. Curious, I ask her about her business. I am not suited to be a
business person, she tells me. How so? I ask, amazed. Dorothee explains that she took a course in
starting a business, but I failed the balance sheet analysis.
53
Balance sheet analysis is something valuable. Nobody who wants to understand the financial situation of
a major company like Siemens can skip the balance sheet analysis. But what Dorothee needed is not a
balance sheet analysis. What she needs to know is whether her work is generating enough income.
Every street kid in Manila, every woman in Bangladesh who gets a microcredit from the Grameen Bank,
has the business smarts for this, without formal business administration concepts and techniques. A
formal requirement just frightens people off, especially creative, artistically inclined people. The start up
consultant would have given better advice if he had simple told Dorothee to collect the receipts for her
expenses and her income and take them to a bookkeeper, or to pay a student to do her income tax
return. With Dorothee, a promising business founder was derailed because of an incompetent startup
consultant.

Day 20

Campus members did you know that Get big, but remain small
The principle is Get big, but remains small. This is the advantage of making use of large, efficient units
without having to establish and operate them yourself. Your company grows, but the core activity that
you control remains small, and thus coherent and manageable.

Day 21

My Co Contestants CEC 2020

Campus members did you know that the first step is to have an idea and to work on it until a compelling concept emerges. The second step is to find pre existing professional components with which you can bring the idea to life in all its artistic details.

Concept plus components

A carefully thought out concept plus professional components that is the magic
formula with which we can challenge the major players of the economic world.

Day 15
As a budding 2020 Citizen Entrepreneurship Contestant from Nigeria South South Nigeria Region I love my idea and project Electricity for Everyone because I seek out to ask many questions than answers, I am 100 percent focus and self discipline, critical thinker, networker, innovator while my major duty now is to help young people across mother Earth to start developing their inherent entrepreneurial skills and talents towards realizing our 17 sustainable development goals and join me now to ask many questions across our 2020 platform

Campus members I want to ask all of you, What do my friends and I lack? Could not we make certain things simpler, better, cheaper? What would I like to do, in collaboration with others? It is a question of finding an initial idea, selecting one from among the subjects you have already thought about.

Anyone who is actively creative no matter what the field knows that often the best ideas arise in moments of solitude, especially when the task is to work on a new puzzle rather than on an existing one. There is another situation that may help illustrate this principle a school child who reads a classmates essay is already caught in the web of that essays thoughts.

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

Day 16
The difference between Invention and Innovation. Campus members Invention and innovation appear to be closely related. Many people believe there must be an invention at the beginning of every entrepreneurial success story. The rest is then merely a question of implementation.

Day 17

The difference between entrepreneurship and business administration

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

Note, entrepreneurship is unconventional way why business administration is conventional way.

Day 18

Campus members I want you to apply this today, based on Patents and new technologies are only the raw material

Let us take these thoughts a little further. Until now we have tacitly assumed that startups originating from innovative concepts are neglected or overlooked by mainstream researchers and consultants, whose primary focus of attention has been on the so called technology oriented startups. An invention, the patent based on it, or a new technology, seemed to be a solid basis for establishing a new company.

Day 19
What good entrepreneurial design must accomplish

We have to make high demands on entrepreneurial design because it must provide solutions to a whole
range of problems faced by startups.

What good entrepreneurial design must accomplish
1. Work out clear market advantages
2. Secure a head start over imitators
3. Protect against technological obsolescence
4. Protect against commercial obsolescence
5. Minimize financing costs
6. Include marketing as an integral component of the entrepreneurial design

The first and most important criterion is that the concept demonstrates market advantages over
established competitors.
All my fellow contestants 2020 should endeavor to read it today and apply to their innate idea and project, be focus

Day 20

Campus members based on this Working at the Puzzle

Good entrepreneurial design is the result of a search process much like trying things out and piecing together a jigsaw puzzle. The process is similar to creating a composition where you keep working until everything fits and every false note has been eliminated.

I believe it is helpful to treat this mental activity as a form of recreation, just as you would work a real puzzle. After a little practice, it gets easier to move the pieces around to see if they fit. You should get just as much pleasure from this as a child who enjoys puzzles and takes satisfaction each time the pieces fit.

I want all to reflect on it

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

Day 21

Campus members did you know that a Good entrepreneurial design is something that one might call plain style, where one has tightened, simplified and looked deeply into the substance of a work until one has eliminated every superfluous ornament. In economics, this means saving on manpower, capital, energy, materials, and transportation. Like good literature, good art or good music, good entrepreneurial design may draw its power from simplicity and clarity.

Simplicity
is the ultimate sophistication
LEONARDO DA VINCI
These days an entrepreneur is more like an artist than a manager. The close relationship between entrepreneurship and artistic endeavor is sometimes even reflected in word choice.

See how Steve
Wozniak, the co founder of Apple, describes his work below

A good engineer is like an artist. When you develop something, every detail is like a
brushstroke that has to be exactly right.
Just as Ernest Hemingway worked at polishing his sentences for days and weeks, I work at
Apple. We composed like solo musicians.
From notes come melodies, then stanzas and finally an entire song.

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.

I Emmanuel Ekpenyong have read through your PROJECT and it is impressive AND UNCONVENTIONAL, but I want to share the commenting phase this week that can help you to improve your implementation, they are below;
July 18, 2020
Day 8
As a budding 2020 Citizen Entrepreneurship Contestant from Nigeria South South Nigeria Region I love my idea and project Electricity for Everyone because I seek out to ask many questions than answers, l am 100% focus and self discipline, critical thinker, networker, innovator while my major duty now is to help young people across mother Earth to start developing their inherent entrepreneurial skills and talents towards realizing our 17 sustainable development goals and join me now to ask many questions across our 2020 platform!
The concept of the Tea Campaign did not develop overnight. At the beginning it was not at all certain whether the project would involve tea or some other business. I had no firm notions what my company would look like. At the beginning my only goal was to combine academic theory with handson entrepreneurial practice. Did you know, Prof. Faltin was the Founder of the Concept of the Tea Campaign ?
Day 9
Did you know Prof. Gunter Faltin Concept of the campaign was about unconventional or conventional?
Day 10
There is such a tea all the experts agree on this. It grows on the southern slopes of the Himalayas and is named for the region where it is cultivated Darjeeling. Because I was no tea expert, much less a tea drinker, this is something I learned at the library of the Free University of Berlin. If you could have such an outstanding tea, especially for so little money, perhaps customers would be willing to do without a wide selection. So I thought: as a wine drinker, if I could buy Rothschild Lafite, one of the worlds most expensive wines, for the price of an ordinary house wine, then I would only drink Rothschild Lafite.
Limiting the selection to Darjeeling alone had yet another advantage. How was a customer to recognize that my tea really was a much better value? After all, every merchant claims his goods are the best
quality at the cheapest price.
Campus members did you know if Prof. Faltin made this statement based on convention or function, did you know?
Day 11
Did you know, there was yet another hurdle: how to finance the project? After all, the first step was a major bulk purchase. In international trade the credit period is 60 days. This meant we had two months before the big bill fell due. The ship from Calcutta to Hamburg takes about four weeks. Once in port at Hamburg, the tea would be unloaded at the Port of Hamburg in two to three days. That left a full month to sell as much tea as possible. Thus the idea of a campaign. We had to sell fast in order to be able to pay the big bill.
Day 12
Campus members should all know today that Mother Teresa was a social entrepreneur with a difference, when she said, Never be so busy as not to think of others, so now I urge you all to make sure you share commitment to others ideas and projects happily.
Day 13
Based on the ideas makes the difference, did you know it is the quality of the idea that is the decisive factor an idea that at the outset seemed crazy to almost everyone: only one type of tea and only in big packages? But this was not a whim or a passing fancy it was a very carefully thought out concept. The principle is to build from function instead of following convention. If you systematically look for the factors that make a product like tea so expensive in Germany, you almost inevitably come up with this solution. Although it may seem strange, it does make sense because it cuts costs radically.
Day 14
Not inspirations or passing fancies, campus members did you know that or can you imagine furniture that the customer has to assemble himself? Can you design furniture that can be assembled without woodworking machinery or specialized tools? Does not this require a complete rethinking of how to make wardrobes, tables and chairs? Are customers even willing to put furniture together themselves? Do they have the time and inclination to do so? Do they dare? Is not it unreasonable that people suddenly be required to assemble their own furniture? These are among the many novel questions that scarcely anyone before Ikea founder Ingvar Kamprad had ever asked. Did he get spontaneous positive feedback on these concerns from his circle of friends and acquaintances? I am sure he did not. The solution looks simple, but it demanded unconventional questions and a lot of mental effort before answers emerged yes, customers were willing and able to assemble their furniture and, yes, the price incentives were sufficient to induce them to purchase furniture like this. Kamprad asked questions that, if they had even been asked previously, had elicited only negative responses. Kamprad had to challenge common sense and prevailing views, and he had no industry experts standing at his side. He had to rethink his furniture completely in order to figure out how to construct it so that ordinary consumers would be able to put it together at home.

Campus member I have meticulously read through your concept and idea 2020 and I see that it is impressive, but I have this following day 8 to 14 days of the commence of commenting phase to share with you the following below how you can question, examine and refine your concept for fruition implementation after your laboratory, study them carefully
Day 8
As a Nigerian Serial Entrepreneur and 2020 Best Idea Contestant. My sole role in this platform is to mobilize my co global youth led innovation towards exchanging and supporting their creative ideas and projects towards contributing to achieving the sustainable developing goals. While envisioning to do volunteer work and assisting upcoming start ups across borders soon.
Campus members today in our commenting and sharing phase
I want to educate all campus members to learn this from me freely
As for us, the company founders, our workload would also be reduced after the startup phase, so that
once again we would be free to pursue new ideas we ourselves were not involved in any of the steps
necessary for producing or shipping the apple juice. We outsourced all necessary services. Ratio Drink AG
makes use of sector specific service companies and has spent considerable time identifying good and
reliable partners.
If you want apple juice, you have to get apples, press them, collect the juice in containers and ship it. A
company near Lake Constance collects the apples throughout the region, processes them into juice
concentrate and sends it to our bottler in 1,000 liter tanks. The bottler, in turn, has the task of filling the
concentrate into a 3 liter bag in box properly, keeping everything clean and sterile. We do not supply
this packaging either, but instead purchase it from a manufacturer with the appropriate expertise. After
the concentrate is filled into the bag in box containers, another company forwards the product to our
shipper in Hamburg, who reships it to fulfill our customers orders. We have also outsourced all the
bookkeeping. Thus we do not need to purchase hardware and software for running the company
instead, we delegate the task to someone who does it more professionally and more economically than
we could do it for ourselves.
Well, then, how are we spending our time? We have now conceived of an entrepreneurial concept and
sought out the proper components to implement it. While others are groaning under their workload, we
have time to think about our next steps.
What is new here is that no one had ever bottled juice concentrate in bag in box containers. Part of the
task, though, was coordinating the producer of the concentrate with our bottler and the packaging
manufacturer. Is that all? Not quite. When you use new methods, you can also experience unforeseen
problems. The packaging material we used initially proved not to be sturdy enough it did not always
withstand shipment by mail. So implementation has not become less important: the critical issue is that
today many operations can be outsourced and placed in professional hands. Recognizing this gave us
more freedom to fine tune the concept instead of having to educate ourselves in a variety of specialty
areas.

Day 9
Campus members did you know that DuttweiIer, with some friends, founded the Migros Company in 1925?
On August 25, early in the
morning, five trucks rolled off to deliver their goods to the people. The trucks were loaded with only six
products coffee, rice, sugar, noodles, coconut oil, and soap. All in large packages. A flyer explained why
these goods were so inexpensive, despite their high quality. The trucks and their drivers were a kind of
consumer education on wheels. Duttweiler, the diligent researcher and discoverer of the obvious,
proved to be a successful entrepreneur of the first order with his breakthrough as price cutter.
Campus members, did you know Duttweiler can also be regarded as a pioneer in matters of efficiency? Why can not you all apply this concept for you your idea and project.

Did you know, Getting rich is fun but ultimately pointless, unless it manages to improve something? Faltins ideal is neither the company man or woman, nor the person who accumulates wealth for the sake of being rich; his ideal is the artist, the creator, the rebel who questions convention and who aims to lead a rich and meaningful life.

This approach keeps alive the connection between business and pleasure, between work and life, between getting and spending.

This applies to the ways to establish a business. However, not all ways are equal. Many seem narrow, mysterious; others appear clear and open. But all of them are difficult and require hard work, or so it is said. It is striking that along the way you will run across advisers who claim to know the road without ever having traveled it themselves. Even more striking is that when you take a closer look, you find the main route closed. Which of us ordinary mortals starts with a technology patent, research findings or an abundance of capital?

This book describes a road that until now has been little recognized a road that has more to do with ideas and their development than with research and hi tech, a road that does not primarily focus on commercial technologies and the quest for capital. A road more compatible with our own times, one could say; one that makes use of the business tools that are available to everyone, one that makes the realm of entrepreneurship accessible to many more people than is the case today. It is a road that makes the figure of the entrepreneur seem closer to that of an artist or composer than to a typical business owner or manager. It is a path that the author himself has traveled and which he describes from personal experience. And nowadays you can get to Rome more easily and more economically than ever before.

You have got to be crazy if you want to be an entrepreneur: you will have to work 12 to 14 hours a day, there will be no vacations in the near future, and you will have little or no private life anymore. You will be at risk of losing your friends or your life partner to others who are under less stress and have more time. You will be the first one in the office in the morning and the last to leave at night. You will have to understand bookkeeping and financial statements. You should have some idea of tax law, business law and labor law, not to mention contract law. You will have to be able to lead your staff. And be able to talk to and shrewdly negotiate with financial institutions. Naturally you will have to have a good marketing plan, keep your business in good order and make sharp calculations. Risks will come at you, and in droves. Not to mention that your chances of survival in the market are less than 50 percent. According to many studies, as many as 80 percent of start ups have failed by year five at the latest. Thus bankruptcy looms at least statistically in return for all your valiant efforts. To put it plainly in our society with the high level of social entitlements that we have achieved, a person would really have to be crazy to start his own business.

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.

As a Nigerian Serial Entrepreneur and 2020 Best Idea Contestant. My sole role in this platform is to mobilize my co global youth led innovation towards exchanging and supporting their creative ideas and projects towards contributing to achieving the sustainable developing goals. While envisioning to do volunteer work and assisting upcoming start ups across borders soon.

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

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

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

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

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