  1. My greatest appreciation goes to Professor Gunter Faltin, He is not just an Ivory Tower expertise, it makes me have a voice now in Nigeria, even if I am yet to arrive Germany, I am so excited, I turned out to be an Entrepreneurship Lecturer over night as a result of his book, I digested every bit of the content especially our lessons on pages 97 to 109, and my silver lining is on the quote of Andrew Carnegie powerful quotes that says, ” Concentrate your energies, your thought, and your capital” The wise man put all his eggs in one basket and watches it” I am ready to meet him in “Winners Announcement’s Ceremony in Free University soon” bye

    Clearly. There are people that joined on 31 July and in one week they had 44,000 votes and 10,000 comments. All our bars were affected tremendously. Even us that had started way back early felt our efforts were no more. Thank you for considering this honestly but the bar should be made in a way that it detects one comment per person and does not shift of its the same comment. Also let it shift mainly when comments are from fellow competitors because people comment for themselves and the bar moves. Someone can have 26,000 comments and the bar has moved more than ours. Thank you

  3. My Humblest Thanks Goes to Campus Administrator

    Well, almost everyone from the campus has been giving an emotional speech, I will try to not be long with mine..A big CONGRATULATIONS to all of you for all the support you have granted me since day one and which has been pushing me to do better each time. This journey has been long almost 4 months, but we have learned so many things here, from both negative and positive experiences. There has been many ups and downs, but we know we did our best, we supported as many idea/projects we could. Sometimes the blue bar motivated us, sometimes it did the reverse. I, personally obtained so many benefits from the campus, ranging from the online training, blogs, ideas/projects, to knowing myself as an entrepreneur, learning more about innovation and creativity, borrowing and the list goes on and on, but the most amazing thing was making so many entrepreneurship friends and educating many through my concepts and components.

    The whole world felt and sensed and convinced and intuitively believed in my idea GREEN RIBBON, hence you believe in LOVING LIFE and ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION. Healthy living and fresh breathe for cerebral palsy kids and teens that is even bad than CANCER yet they world ignore it.. We need sustainable actions for our planet. In GREEN RIBBON Start Ups, we are ideas generators with fun toward sustainable development and we need to protect nature, without which we cease to exist. THANKS!

    Thats really great initiative to validate genuine votes and comments because this is really unbelivable to have 1000s of votes just in few days. Thanks again for your efforts to keep it unbiased. Its relief to all the participants like me, who were having only genuine votes and comments.

    I think it is not right for you to say that the score 44000 is a problem. We are friends of this kid in Thailand, we work hard to get her to vote. We help share and distribute brochures in public places. Incessantly Until the last second Her project has no less intention than other projects. And we support. The comments are better known than us Often have language problems It’s not strange that we comment like But however, we should respect Rule

More Power to Entrepreneurship Campus Organization and God Bless!

  24. I have never really thought about the future until Until two months
    ago an announcement was made at our school about one girl. She
    was seriously ill. She had cancer. A very aggressive form of it. The
    doctors in our country did everything they could for her. Still she was
    dying. Her only hope was the treatment that she could get in
    Germany. She needed minimum of 50 thousand Euros to be able to
    go and soon. The price of the human life. It’s a lot of money here. So
    her parents started raising funds wherever they could and
    eventually came to our school. Nowadays we have almost got used
    to such stories because after the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Station accident the rate of cancer
    among children in Belarus has increased 13 times. This power station is situated almost at the
    boarder of our Republic and right after the accident the wind was blowing north and carrying
    radioactive clouds in our direction So there are articles in newspapers, announcements on TV,
    Internet about kids dying of cancer who need urgent help.

  26. The wonderful thing is that as we decrease the scale of economic activity, we actually increase our own emotional well being. That is because at the deepest level localization is about connection. It is about re establishing our sense of interdependence with others and with the natural world. And this connection is a fundamental human need.

  27. ” I began my career as an economics professor but became frustrated because the economic theories I taught in the classroom didn’t have any meaning in the lives of poor people I saw all around me. I decided to turn away from the textbooks and discover the real-life economics of a poor person’s existence.”

  34. It is a great honour for me to be “A 2019 Best Idea Finalist”: to follow in the footsteps of world-renowned thinkers and activists-many of whom, incidentally, I am happy to count among my friends and colleagues. An honour and also a source of great hope and strength: that an organisation as prestigious as The Entrepreneurship Campus should understand and value the role of economic localization in helping to create a more equitable and sustainable world. i thank you for your support and accept this global position as a finalist on behalf of the emerging worldwide localization movement; a movement that, I believe can not only help to prevent ecological devastation but also substantially improve the quality of life for the great majority of people on earth.

You are whole, with or without them.”
