Summary of your idea
The major objective of DI-ARENA is to bring in both the young and elderly sport enthusiast under the same roof in a very conducive atmosphere and environment to enjoy the beautiful game of soccer and at the same time reliving themselves of stress and tension experienced during the days work. DI-ARENA aims to build a sustainable environment by building first a loving and healthy community and society. The activities include the showing of different matches from various leagues around the world in a high definition quality display to the satisfaction of the spectators coupled with the sale of snacks during matches. Over time, viewing centers have always looked dilapidated with total neglect of the environment where matches are being displayed. My aim is to provide a well-kept and furnished environment and a generally acceptable and conducive environment. I intend to introduce snacks such as popcorn during matches to enable spectators keep their eyes, heart and mouth busy during a football match. Incentives in form of free popcorn would also be given to individuals who pre-order their tickets 24 hours before the commencement of any match and the cost of tickets would be subsidized for those who purchase more than a single ticket in a day as this will encourage people develop interest in watching their teams play at DI-Arena. Before the commencement of any match spectators would be given an opportunity to vote for the match to be displayed via a projector screen as I intend to display matches not just with television set but also via projectors as this is yet to be practiced in my target market. Snacks would be made available outside the arena in the ticketing section to anyone willing to purchase it during a match.
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
In a neighbourhood predominantly dominated by low income earners that have to engage in stressful jobs/labours such as riding bikes, carpenters etc. during the day to survive, it is difficult to rule out the tendencies of stress and frustrations from there daily living. These tendencies sometimes results in anger unleashed on neighbours and family members which affects sustainable development of the environment. It has been discovered individuals tend to forget their worries whenever they watch the game of soccer as enemies unite during the period. I believe creating a conducive and relax able environment for this set of individuals would not only ease off their days stress but will also help re-align and prepare their mindset towards the next day. This will definitely result in the improvement of a sustainable development and a happy and harmonious society. One of the measures to evaluate success is via the expected streams of income and rate of crime reduction expected to be noticed during the cause of running the business as i hope to place various inscription on walls, delivering messages that will orientate and pass valuable information to the viewers. Opportunities would also be available for the young to interact with and learn from the elderly in the community.
Plans for implementation and sustainability
My major source of finance is my personal savings but loans and partnership is also being worked towards as this will further help improve the quality of service delivery. The important things needed for the running of the business includes space to set up the viewing center which is already being worked towards at an undecided rent by the landlord, furniture, 3 dstv decoders, a generator, 2 plasma television sets, a projector and screen and popcorn making machine. this are things to be purchased before the commencement of the business while subscription to the DSTV service and fueling of the Generator would be from the basic or monthly expenditure. Due to the unreliability of the market in my country Nigeria, an estimated capital budget of 5000 dollars is expected to completely start up the business including leasing the space, building the structure and setting up all necessary facilities and services.
Name: Badusi Williams Oluwatosin Date of birth: 24 years old Nationality: Nigerian Academic qualification: (B. Tech.)Estate Management Surveying and Valuation, Federal University Of Technology, Akure, Ondo State. (Final Year Student) My major motivation is the drive to create a sustainable environment through the creation of a conducive and peaceful environment using sports. I also want to not just be self-employed but to also create avenues for others to be self-employed like the person who would be producing the snacks. During my previous 4 years as an undergraduate, I was privileged to serve in various leadership positions up to the level of the universitys student union government (FUTASUG). I was also privileged to attend entrepreneurship, classes, seminars and conferences and this I believe as developed by capacity and ability as an entrepreneur. I have also served as consultants to so many organisation and other entrepreneurs and I believe I should not have much challenge establishing my own source of income. My knowledge on i.t is also an added advantage to me as this will enable explore technologies in my business that that will give me an edge over competitors which Im expecting to arise. My interest in helping others is what drove me into establish a non-governmental organisation known as Diamond Initiative in my university. The aim of diamond initiative is to see that all children have access to education and our motto is beautifying lives. I am innovative and strong willed and I believe the first step to achieving success is developing an idea and success mindset.
