The Entrepreneurship Campus is an activity within the framework of the UNESCO Global Action Programme (GAP) on Education for Sustainable Development (ESD)

The Importance of Collaboration for Positive Change 

Entrepreneurship Campus

Social collaboration brings people and stakeholders together to achieve a common goal. Like in organizations, social collaboration becomes the driving force behind a community movement or initiative for change. Thanks to technology, social collaboration is no longer geographically restricted. People can cooperate even though located thousands of miles away.

This is one of the main purposes of the Entrepreneurship Campus, to bring together people that share an interest in innovation and social entrepreneurship as driving forces towards positive change.

People of different ages, and especially youth join our community because they have a cause to support or a problem that they need to solve smartly.

Besides skills acquisition and networking, the members of the Entrepreneurship Campus have the opportunity to collaborate and help each other by supporting the ideas and projects submitted to our competitions. After every entry submitted to our competitions a person is thinking or working on a solution to a frustrating problem that can turn into a major issue if not solved.

All the ideas and projects are great because their owners are working on them while having limited or a few resources available. Our goal is to get people engaged in creating a better world through entrepreneurial education. You can still join us, by submitting your ideas or projects or by helping other contestants to promote or improve their entries.

Here’s a selection of quotes on the role of collaboration and cooperation at the organization level and beyond.

To build a strong team you must see someone else’s strength as a complement to your weakness not a threat to your position or authority.

Christine Caine

Many ideas grow better when transplanted into another mind than the one where they sprang up.

Oliver Wendell Holmes

Sticks in a bundle are unbreakable.

Kenyan Proverb

You need to be aware of what others are doing, applaud their efforts, acknowledge their successes, and encourage them in their pursuits. When we all help one another, everybody wins.

Jim Stovall

Many hands make light work.

John Heywood

Victory is much more meaningful when it comes not just from one person, but from the joint achievements of many.  

Howard Schultz

The strength of the team is each individual member. The strength of each member is the team.

Phil Jackson

The only thing that will redeem mankind is cooperation.  

Bertrand Russell

The meeting of two personalities is like the contact of two chemical substances. If there is any reaction, both are transformed.   

Carl Jung

  1. I couldn’t agree more. Indeed the only thing that can redeem mankind is cooperation.
    @Blessing @Lambisia @ Naomi @Annie and all the rest that have improved my attitude of cooperation on this platform. This competition has taught us that no man is an island and you need others to go far in life. Let’s keep supporting other team members to make their ideas/projects better.

  2. The inherent attitude of welcoming open collaboration and idea-sharing is also a necessary criterion for being an effective leader and, in turn, a great step to becoming a great leader. I am very much inspired by this quote from Jim Stovall: “You need to be aware of what others are doing, applaud their efforts, acknowledge their successes, and encourage them in their pursuits. When we all help one another, everybody wins”. This is what selfless and servant leadership and effective collaboration mean and entail. Thank you for sharing; truly, I am inspired.

    “If you want to go fast, go alone, but if you want to go far, go together.” So goes a favorite African proverb for many of us engaged in social impact work.

    We have potential to achieve more when we collaborate to solve problems in our world.

    Few months ago I registered in an Online Inclusive Leadership program,a program designed to connect social change agents across the globe together to further promote peace and shun discrimination.

    Through this platform I have connect with great minds who are working on different project just to shape our world to a better place.

    We can’t succeed in isolation,we need each other to GROW

  5. This is a great platform where all ideas and their owners interact, suggest and learn incredible things.
    “The only thing that will redeem mankind is cooperation.” It is beautiful thought by Phil Jackson.
    Every idea is useless, until it comes under recognition and incorporation. Thanks to UNESCO for organising such an event and competition to engage world’s youth at large. Everyday people are growing and through blog updates, they are inhaling awareness, participating actively and enhancing development.

    But I entrepreneur-essien want campus members to know that “Collaboration Creates Prosperity” and I want all to remember Margaret Mead famously said, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world; indeed, it is the only thing that ever has, “Looking even more deeply, it is the small acts of that small group of people that end up snowbailing into significant change. So, To build a strong team you must see someone else’s strength as a complement to your weakness not a threat to your position or authority. This is my contribution!

  8. Did you know that Lynne Twist declared on Collaboration in ” The Soul of Money Book” Chapter 7.
    This book was the first golden award that i won from California by the author, and she intuitively mailed it to me in Nigeria,

    I urge all campus members to read this and share the story to my mail

    [email protected] This is my collaboration in action already, I am waiting for members testimonies from the book. bye

  9. I like quotes two quotes
    Many hands make light work .
    The only thing that will redeem mankind is cooperation.

  10. As a campus member, I urge us to embrace Goal 2, which is the number one key factor towards cooperation.

  11. I am very glad that I am part of this campus. From the day I became a member to now, I have learnt so much from the online training and the other participants. I got lots of useful content from them, I am very grateful. Thank you!

  12. With our collaboration on campus, I’m convinced we can ignite the inner light from our campus platform to the world.

  13. Collaboration is one of the number one key factors we need in our Entrepreneurship Campus

  14. In entrepreneurship campus, I see collaboration as a positive driver that will drive us to our final destinations.

  15. Though Professor Gunter Faltin and Lisa Lang inspired and stirred me, yet my 2019 entrepreneurship job now is to brush up others ideas, ignites entrepreneurial spirit, collaboration, supports, recommendations and as well as touching and saving millions of lives in Nigeria through Green Ribbon Initiatives.

  16. I am truly honored to be with you. I would especially like to start with thanks to the Youth Citizen Entrepreneurship Competition members for your caring and for putting in the work that you do. I hope I will be able to contribute to your work by sharing an understanding of the very profound historical transformation the world is going through, and that we are all trying to serve. That is the transformation from the agricultural world, which produced very small surplus that only allowed very few people to be players, to a world where everyone has to be changemaker. If you imagine 5, 10, 15 years ahead in the context where the rate of change is accelerating logarithmically after 12,000 years of being relatively flat, you can just imagine how cruel it is for anyone not to be a changemaker.

    Ephraim Essien (2019 Best Ideas Category) Titled: Green Ribbon (Creating Change – Enriching Lives)

  17. So I hope I will be able to expand on that insight: how is this happening; what are the barriers; what are some of the key answers to those barriers; and then move on to what the implications of this change are for us as individuals, for others we care about, for the institutions we are a part of, and ultimately of course for society.

    By Ephraim Essien (2019 Best Ideas Category) Titled: Green Ribbon (Creating Change – Enriching Lives)

  18. Before doing that I would like to introduce two social entrepreneurs to you very concretely because social entrepreneurship is very much at the cutting edge of this revolution and understanding of it is important. It will also help explain where our understanding comes from.

    By Ephraim Essien (2019 Best Ideas Category) Titled: Green Ribbon (Creating Change – Enriching Lives)

  19. Ashoka has roughly 2,500 of the world’s leading social entrepreneurs on every continent and every subject matter as our core community. These Ashoka Fellows are role models and mass recruiters of changemakers, which is key for their success.

    By Ephraim Essien (2019 Best Ideas Category) Titled: Green Ribbon (Creating Change – Enriching Lives)

  20. Let me start this part—what is a leading social entrepreneur—by asking you a question. What is the most powerful force in the world? I think it is pretty clear that it is a major pattern-changing idea, but only if it’s in the hands of an entrepreneur. It’s that combination that moves the world more than anything else. So let me then challenge you to see some of the patterns as I introduce these two stories.

    By Ephraim Essien (2019 Best Ideas Category) Titled: Green Ribbon (Creating Change – Enriching Lives)

  21. The first story is about Mary Gordon. Mary is a Canadian. She was elected a Fellow just short of three years ago. She saw a problem in the classes she was teaching in the public schools in Toronto. There was increasing number of children who could only respond to another child who made them uncomfortable with aggression, which of course invited aggression back from the other child, and you can predict where all that was leading. Every time a child went through that cycle the pattern would get deeper, and the probability of that child not being able to function in a world that requires a high level of skill in dealing with others increased. And of course the probability of the school being dysfunctional increased. Because Mary is an entrepreneur, she gave herself permission to see a problem that was obvious but no one was seeing. This is a clue as to one of the first patterns. Entrepreneurs give themselves permission to see and to think and to act.

    By Ephraim Essien (2019 Best Ideas Category) Titled: Green Ribbon (Creating Change – Enriching Lives)

  22. If you are an entrepreneur, you don’t want to solve it just for the children in your class. You want to change the whole society. Well, how do you change the education system? Everywhere in the world, it is notorious for not being the most innovative or fast-moving sector. So she knew it had to be a very simple idea. I’ll jump ahead to the results. Three years later, she’s gone from 2 schools to 2,000 schools in Canada; New Zealand has adopted the idea; and she has been approached by the Government of Japan for help.

    By Ephraim Essien (2019 Best Ideas Category) Titled: Green Ribbon (Creating Change – Enriching Lives)

  23. What is her idea? She asks only for one hour a month for 8 months of a class, and the younger the children the better. She brings an infant less than one year old, plus mom, plus a green blanket. The infant is the professor. The infant sits on the green blanket. The students have the responsibility, not the teacher, for figuring out what the professor is saying and later what the professor is feeling. You can imagine the children get into this very quickly. It has a huge impact. The Canadians actually have a measurement system for bullying. After those 8 hours, bullying rates come down and stay down. You could see that this is an idea and approach that could work anywhere in the world and Mary is out to make it work everywhere in the world. So that’s Case One.

    By Ephraim Essien (2019 Best Ideas Category) Titled: Green Ribbon (Creating Change – Enriching Lives)

  24. The second case is Rodrigo Baggio, who is a Brazilian. He loves computers like all people of his generation, but unlike most of his peers he went into the slums, the favelas behind where he lived and he saw that the young people there, although highly motivated, were being left completely behind. This is before there was a phrase “the digital divide.” As an entrepreneur, he saw patterns that were not the patterns of the stereotypes. He saw that the communities were competent, that they could organize, and that these were good people. He also saw that the students had plenty of motivation and they could learn if they were trusted to learn. His model for addressing the problem, the digital divide, asks the communities to do 95% of the work, to organize the space, to raise the money, to organize recruitment of students, and to hire the teachers. All he had to do is provide the software, some training and some old computers.

    By Ephraim Essien (2019 Best Ideas Category) Titled: Green Ribbon (Creating Change – Enriching Lives)

  25. With that simple insight, here is the curve of the growth of his organization in terms of number of students graduating. As you can see, it’s gone off the top of the chart 3 years ago. He is now in 15 countries in Latin America and Asia. I chose this example in part because he actually came to Japan and has demonstrated his work here because for Asia he needed Japan to provide the supply of second hand computers.

    By Ephraim Essien (2019 Best Ideas Category) Titled: Green Ribbon (Creating Change – Enriching Lives)

  26. Now let me tell you a story about Rodrigo. He is about 6’7” tall and about 3 inches wide. He arrived in Washington in his 20’s with this idea. His English was to say the least spotty, and he walked into the Inter-American Development Bank and said, “Please give me your computers,” and they gave him their old computers, which were very valuable. Then he went to the Brazilian Air Force and said, “You have warehouses because you buy all these military equipment from the U.S. Let me store my computers for free at your warehouse. By the way, would you please fly these computers to Brazil for free for me?” This was a time Brazil was in the middle of what they call the informatics policy. Brazil was going to make its own computers and so no computers were supposed to come in. Well these masses of computers sailed through customs. Now, what is going on here? Could you walk into the Japanese Air Force and ask them to do this for you? I would have a little trouble with the American Air Force, I can tell you.

    By Ephraim Essien (2019 Best Ideas Category) Titled: Green Ribbon (Creating Change – Enriching Lives)

  27. The heart of this is that when he was sitting and talking with the senior officials at the Inter-American Development Bank, they sort of heard the words that the transaction was going on at a much deeper level, which gets to the heart of what an entrepreneur is. They sensed that Rodrigo was completely married to this idea, and they knew that they could trust Rodrigo. They knew that he was a person of very good ethical fiber. That’s the transaction. Every entrepreneur is always asking people to do completely unreasonable things in conventional terms, and people do them because they know of that marriage and they trust the person.

    By Ephraim Essien (2019 Best Ideas Category) Titled: Green Ribbon (Creating Change – Enriching Lives)

  28. These two examples I think will give you a sense of what a social entrepreneur is and what some of the characteristics are. If you were an Ashoka nominator or on the selection panel, we would train you in these qualities. Is there a new idea that will change the pattern in the field at least on a continental level? If not, it’s not worth the time.
    By Ephraim Essien (2019 Best Ideas Category) Titled: Green Ribbon (Creating Change – Enriching Lives)

  29. Then there are four other qualities. First, is the person creative in goal setting and problem solving? Second, are they entrepreneurial? Are they unable to stop unless they have changed the whole society in an important way? That means they focus on the how-to’s as much as the vision, and they are open to listening to anything that needs to be changed and intuitively over time they keep changing it until it works. Third, once the idea has been demonstrated—once Mary has done this in two schools—will other people say, “Oh, that’s a really good idea. Let me try that?” Does the idea have legs, and if so, how far will it go? And finally, ethical fiber is absolutely critical, and that’s the last part of the story about Rodrigo.
    By Ephraim Essien (2019 Best Ideas Category) Titled: Green Ribbon (Creating Change – Enriching Lives

  30. We do an evaluation of the results at the end of 5 years. Once Fellows have had a chance to have an impact, 97% are continuing full time pursuing their vision, 90% have had independent institutions copy their idea, and over half have already changed national policy. That last measure is more significant than it seems because a lot of Fellows do not need to change national policy to succeed.
    By Ephraim Essien (2019 Best Ideas Category) Titled: Green Ribbon (Creating Change – Enriching Lives

  31. The point of this is we have to use judgment in making these choices. Our field is constantly being pressurized to make the mistake that business made of becoming too numbers focused. That is a mistake we don’t want to make. This is discipline judgment: 5 steps, different people, and clear criteria. We are able to get these results year after year in over 70 countries in every imaginable subject matter and they are very stable.

    By Ephraim Essien (2019 Best Ideas Category) Titled: Green Ribbon (Creating Change – Enriching Lives

  32. Now, with that, let me expand on what I said before. An individual who is not able to cause change in a world where change is the dominant factor is not going to be a player. You may be a highly trained engineer or a doctor, but if you don’t know how to deal with change you’re going to be at sea increasingly year by year. And more importantly, what is the thing that people want to do in life more than anything else? We want to give and receive love and respect. That’s not something you do in theory; its something you do in action, and change-making is the highest level—the highest opportunity to give love and respect. If you don’t have the ability to do that, how much have we deprived you of? What is wrong with the society that says only a few people are going to be brought up and given the tools to be changemakers? What is wrong with us in managing our institutions that way? This is a huge transition we have to make, and this is the essential challenge.

    By Ephraim Essien (2019 Best Ideas Category) Titled: Green Ribbon (Creating Change – Enriching Lives

  33. It’s the same thing with institutions. We now have millions of institutions and every one of them has to change or they will die. There is a huge competition for the limited supply of changemakers, which is one of the reasons income distributions are getting worse and worse all over the world. Ironically that means that the institutions become more hierarchical because they’re so dependent on the few people with those skills. This doesn’t work for individuals or institutions. We have to make it to an everyone a changemaker world. This is a completely different world than the world of the last 12,000 years. We have to manage differently at all levels, and that’s a challenge for everyone.

    By Ephraim Essien (2019 Best Ideas Category) Titled: Green Ribbon (Creating Change – Enriching Lives

  34. Let me ask you a second question. What is the key factor for success for any human institution? The advantages of technology and marketing are getting shorter and shorter and shorter. Their half lives are shrinking as the rate of change accelerates. The one sustainable key factor for success is the proportion of changemakers in a community. That’s true for a company, a city, a country, or an ethnic group. Think ahead 5 or 10 years with that logarithmically increasing rate of change. If any institution you are a part of or care about is not moving in this direction, it is in trouble.

    By Ephraim Essien (2019 Best Ideas Category) Titled: Green Ribbon (Creating Change – Enriching Live

  35. How do we get from here to there? The leading social entrepreneurs are absolutely critical. They are role models. Every leading social entrepreneur has to have thousands of people take their idea and run with it. Rodrigo could not succeed in having a million plus people coming out of these schools right now if he had not persuaded hundreds and thousands of people and all these different countries, all these different slums to say “Rodrigo’s idea works. I’m going to stand up and do it.” They are local changemakers. They become role models. Some of them will become the next generation of major entrepreneurs. So that’s a very core mechanism.

    By Ephraim Essien (2019 Best Ideas Category) Titled: Green Ribbon (Creating Change – Enriching Lives

  36. What is the single biggest barrier of getting from here to there? It’s how we treat young people. Elite young people have always been treated in a different way from everyone else. Certainly when I was growing up, I got the message that I was going to be a competent person. I was encouraged to take initiative. That is not what happens to most young people. Whether in the classroom, work, sports, or extracurricular activities, the message is, “We adults are in charge of everything, thank you. You’re pretty irresponsible and incompetent. Stay out of the way.” Now it’s the same debilitating message that colonial people got, that women used to get, that in the United States the African Americans used to get before the civil rights movement.
    By Ephraim Essien (2019 Best Ideas Category) Titled: Green Ribbon (Creating Change – Enriching Lives

  37. Mary’s example is the first step. You are going to have children be marginalized for life unless they master applied empathy. No one wants to play with someone who is going to cause harm. It doesn’t matter what technical skill they have, they’re out of the game. By the time children become young people, which is roughly 12, they then have to move on and master the next level, which is empathy, teamwork and leadership together. You don’t master these things in theory. You can’t read a book. You have to actually do it. This is like riding a bicycle except much more complex.

  38. How many young people have the experience that they are encouraged, they’re shown role models, they’re helped to have their own idea, build their own organization and leave their middle school or high school changed initiating a tutoring service, a dance academy, a virtual radio station or whatever? We know that almost all the Ashoka Fellows around the world had that experience as teenagers.

  39. We are building a movement which is very powerful and very simple. You can find out more about it at Youth Venture.org or care of the Ashoka site. The goal is to have 20% of all young people in the world have this experience. That means that we will have a work force that’s 20% changemakers 10 years from now.

  40. So what is the relevancy of this historical change? This is the most wonderful career to move into. We’re growing jobs at 3 times the rate of the rest of the economy. Just to give you a couple of statistics: in Brazil we grew from 5,000 citizen groups to a million from 1980 to 2000. In the OECD countries we are growing jobs as I said at 3 times the rate. In Germany we are the only sector that is net growing jobs since 1990, while business and government are shrinking. This is happening because the citizen sector has become as entrepreneurial and competitive as business. It’s catching up very quickly with business. So this is a great career, congruent with values, fast growth, wonderful colleagues, and almost no glass ceilings because the demand is so much greater than the supply. It is obviously a huge opportunity, not only for yourself but also for other people you may know.

  41. Second, think about the young people you know: the 12 year olds to 14 year olds. Are they being powerful now? Think about your niece or your nephew. If they aren’t, you should be worried about that as much as you would be if they were not mastering math or language, because this is actually more important. That’s an immediate relevancy as I’m sure everyone here cares about at least one young person. Ask yourself if that young person is being powerful, that is, being a changemaker now.

  42. Third, think about the institutions you care about. Take business. You have a large citizen’s sector that’s now entrepreneurial and competitive, and it is growing much faster than business. Ashoka is now working in five different industries to demonstrate that when you take a business system that has worked separately from social system for three centuries, and you put the strong parts of each together, everyone benefits dramatically. The companies that are doing this, for example, are Lafarge and Cemex in the building area. We’re doing this for urban construction, rural irrigation, insurance, timber etc. Well, this is only the beginning of the changes that are going to happen. Also, in Government, where are the new ideas going to come from? How are you going to change the system? This is your natural ally, and you could help with that.

  43. Then finally, this is obviously profoundly important for society. If you think that the problems are outrunning the solutions, you may well be right. But once we get to everyone a changemaker world, that can’t possibly be the case, because when something is stuck, everyone, everywhere is going to change it like smart white blood cell. Some people will say, “Boy this sounds very chaotic. Everyone a changemaker—how is that ever going to work?” I think this is something this group in particular would understand intuitively. People want to express love and respect in action, and we can trust them to be a changemaker for the good. We’ve got to help build the institutional arrangements to make that possible. That’s the management challenge of the moment. The people want to be contributors. And if we can let them, we have a great future and that’s what I think we’re all working on together.

    Thank you.

  47. In Germany, in a meeting with a conventional start-up adviser, the would-be founder brings the idea; the idea, so to speak, is simply “there.” In the Laboratory, on the other hand, the idea is questioned, examined, refined. Like a sculptor, a founder can work the raw material and create an intellectual abstraction that reflects not only the concerns of the “artist” more clearly and more precisely, but that also develops a better view of the market. It is important to work out something that’s “a better fit,” something that dovetails with the personality of the founder, something that “feels” better to him or her than the initial idea. Lat us follow our lesson — campus members

  48. In each case, we try to figure out what will truly engage the participant over the long term: what reflects his inclinations and desires, even those desires of which he might not be fully conscious. The method is akin to Frithjof Bergmann’s concept of New Work, where the question posed is: “What do we really, really want?” Thus the goal is not simply to accept the idea and then address possible steps to implement it, but rather to treat the initial idea as the raw material whose potential still needs to be explored

  49. Our desires
    are intimations of the capabilities
    that lie within us.
    They are the heralds of what
    we will be able to achieve.
    JOHANN WOLFGANG VON GOETHE

  50. In this sense, the initial idea is only a heading, a first indication of where we can start looking for the ingredients that should ultimately yield an idea concept. I regard it as the modeling clay out of which you can create many forms. Accordingly, it is not uncommon that the discussion with the prospective founder takes a turn which that person does not expect. Although she is often convinced that she is at the end of the idea process and is already thinking about its implementation, I try to get a feel for whether she herself has actually considered the perspectives that have opened up with her idea. Following such a discussion, it is not uncommon that the founder ends up with ideas totally different from those she originally came with. The job of a consultant is not to give answers, but to ask lots of questions, especially questions that open up new perspectives. The founder must find the answers for himself. It has to be his own intellectual baby, not an idea from the consultant or one triggered by the funding guidelines.

  51. In a world of constant change, good questions
    are the real scarcity. .
    Bad questions assign blame,
    change living processes
    into black-and-white phenomena,
    cement things into clichés,
    belittle the complexity of the world.
    On the other hand, good questions open things up.
    MATTHIAS HORX

  52. Starting a new restaurant is a textbook example I am fond of using. A potential founder comes with an idea: “I’d like to launch a restaurant featuring Egyptian cuisine.” A conventional business consultant would then ask about everything that’s important for operating a restaurant. For example, the competitive situation, or the founder’s competence in the areas important for running a restaurant. Implementation will be the focus here – to open a restaurant, you need money for decorating the premises, for a decent bar, and for the kitchen. Thus the question of capital comes up relatively soon.

  53. The next problems are finding a good location and suitable staff for the restaurant. Now the founder is preoccupied by three things – his capital requirements, finding a suitable location, and selecting the appropriate personnel. The idea of an Egyptian restaurant now plays only a secondary role. It can be anticipated that the concept of the restaurant, if realized, will at best consist of only a few specific interior design elements; perhaps the chairs will be reminiscent of a pharaoh’s throne, or a few pictures of Luxor may hang on the walls.

  54. In spite of what appeared to be appropriate planning, which considered a variety of aspects, there’s still a high degree of risk in this type of start-up. A lot of capital is required, and much advance preparation is needed, all of which will require financing. In addition, there are high operating costs like rent, interest and personnel. Unless there are a lot of customers immediately, as well as over the long term, there’s a danger that this start-up will end up the same way that many other restaurants have ended up in the past. As far as the likelihood of survival goes, it’s like placing bets in a casino – in both cases, the chances of success are statistically low. I put all my money on Red 19 and fervently hope it wins. If my restaurant doesn’t work out, then I’ll lose all of my own money, my borrowed capital, and all my work will have been in vain. I call this launching a business à la Roulette. Not recommended.

  55. My methodology is different. I start with the initial idea and ask the would-be founder probing questions: ”Why do you want to run a restaurant? Because you like to be with people? Because you like to cook? Because you want to run your own business? Because you have pleasant associations with Egypt? Because you are fascinated by Upper Egypt?” His answers give me an initial sense of why the founder came up with this idea at all. Depending on his answers, I follow up with more relevant questions.

  56. If, for example, his answer was, “I like to be with people,” my next questions would be “What do you find attractive about that? What role would you like to play? In what situations do you feel most comfortable with people? What kind of people would you like to surround yourself with? Are you single? Married? What are your hobbies?” If the founder replies, “I am very interested in Egypt,” I would continue with my questions, “What was it that attracted you? Was it the people, the culture, the history, the food, the climate, the exotic history surrounding the pyramids and the pharaohs?”

  57. What’s important to me is to find out what motivates the potential founder and what was behind her original idea. Certainly you can imagine that it’s possible to follow up on each line of questioning with many more questions. Ultimately you’ll have an initial framework that will be on a solid footing because it’s based on the inclinations, talents, desires and passions of the person in question, an approach that can tap the hidden energies of that individual.

  58. Nonetheless it is a relatively open framework, and it still needs many pieces of the puzzle in the form of information, contacts and assessments of the potentialities before we will have built a durable edifice that can stand up to the storms of changing fashion, imitators, established competitors and bureaucratic hurdles, as well as the many other obstacles, both expected and unexpected, that inevitably arise when you start a new venture.

  59. Thus it is not an inspiration or a sudden epiphany that makes for a good entrepreneurial design. It is based on systematic work — the more, the better. Only when the entrepreneurial design addresses as many aspects as possible would I recommend a start-up. In my experience it is often the case that introspection or a closer examination into one’s own as well as the customers’ desires are more promising than chasing trends or opportunities.

  60. If you want to do something really interesting and revolutionary,
    learn to ignore your customers.
    Most customers function like rear view mirrors.
    They are extremely conservative and boring,
    lack imagination
    and don’t know their own minds.

    in: Funky Business: Talent makes capital dance

  61. The verdict is that it’s much too fast to go from initial idea directly into business administration implementation. The potential created by working through the initial idea into a well-thought-out and mature entrepreneurial design should not be neglected.

  62. There are painters who make a yellow spot out of the sun.
    But there are others who through their artistry and intelligence
    make the sun out of a yellow spot.

  63. This book is not the place to describe techniques for improving one’s creativity. There are hundreds of books on the subject with many useful recommendations; but please permit me a few remarks.

  64. The American doctor, psychiatrist and author Frederick Flach points out that the creative act is not something that comes out of thin air; rather, it re-arranges already existing facts, ideas and systems, combining them with one another.

  65. The capacity for creativity in many people has become stunted, whether it’s because the environment in which they grew up disapproved of creativity and originality, or because they were molded by a school system that promoted intellectual conformity, or because they worked in organizations that didn’t permit any imagination in structuring their own activities.

  66. Another source of inhibition lies in the erroneous notion that you must have a unique talent for creativity. In contrast to this, Flach emphasizes that the ability to think and act creatively is a universal human strength. The author cites two important rules that I, too, have found to be reinforced again and again in my workshops. First, at the start you must postpone your own judgment, and second, quantity results in quality.

  67. Of course it goes against the grain to hold back criticisms during the search for ideas and simply to develop as many ideas as possible, especially ideas that might at the start seem unrealistic and illogical. But it is precisely these two rules that are important, because the ideas that come to us first are usually stereotypical and do not bring us as far along as the ideas that will come to us later.

  68. All of us have a tendency, both regarding our own ideas as well as the ideas of others, not to let them stand, but instead, after they have barely been articulated, to immediately analyze and criticize them. The arguments might indeed be very good ones, but they will block the development of new and better ideas.

  69. Anyone who studies creativity in depth will be confronted with a profusion of theories, methods and techniques. Over the years I have worked out seven techniques for developing successful idea concepts.

  70. They are selected from an almost infinite number of techniques that are known, and in my opinion they are especially suitable for the subject of entrepreneurial idea development. I have tried to give them names that are as simple as possible, so please don’t be put off by how elementary they sound. A technique is not made better by giving it a pretentious or cryptic name.

  71. Commonly imitation and arbitrage, that is, the transfer of successful models that already exist in a region or other country, are two approaches that initially sound reasonable and were successful for a long time.

  72. These days imitation and arbitrage are less suitable for start-ups. Why? Because information is no longer available only to you. It’s public knowledge that’s accessible to all. Generally others will be quicker than you are due to the instant dissemination of market prices, e.g., on the Internet, or international trend scouts who are on the lookout for market opportunities for large companies, not to mention the big budgets that the major players invest in imitating successful business models.

  73. While you’re still fiddling with your web page, a giant competitor with concentrated market strength may already be offering the product for sale. To be sure, you can attack the big guys, but not in the areas of arbitrage or imitation.

  74. Wow… I can’t ask for less.

  81. The Tea Campaign as a Case Study
    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 hands-on
    entrepreneurial practice.3

  82. Me — an entrepreneur? In those days it was difficult to bring these words across my lips. And how to
    achieve this, pray tell? To get started, don’t you need a patent, plenty of capital and, above all, solid
    economic tools?
    That was, in any event, the prevailing wisdom….

  83. Now in life it is not unprecedented that someone is called to the very field of endeavor that he had
    previously criticized so harshly. When a few years later I received an invitation to teach at a university, I
    swore I would teach economics differently. And how could one do this better than by the example of
    founding a company?

  84. The study of economics from a single perspective diminishes the subject. This is not a matter of whether
    profit maximization or mathematical formulas are good or bad. The only aspect of interest here is the
    (unplanned) consequence that not only is the fascination for the subject of economics – which is so
    central to our society – lost for most students, but it is also lost for the many who would like to use it as
    a tool.

  85. Would anyone ever come upon the idea to teach sports in such a way that the only thing analyzed
    would be the participants’ desire to win? And then to do this using mathematical formulas? With the
    result that there would no longer be any competition included in the study of physical education, but
    only mathematics? You laugh? What is taught about competition between companies follows this
    precise model – starting from the assumption of profit maximization, this formulaic approach with its
    mathematical models marches into the foreground. It is scarcely possible to find any contact with the
    living subject embedded in reality. Economics becomes marketing, finance, organization, bookkeeping
    and accounting. This is the way the cadaver is dissected. The different motives and characteristics of the
    persons involved no longer exist.

  86. Economists may prefer to explain this paradigm change through the theory of transaction costs. In the
    past, in light of the high transaction costs it made sense to keep most activities within the company.
    These days, however, because of increasing specialization and the low cost of communications, you can
    take advantage of pre-existing components outside the company.

  87. Hi Regina and Blessing

    Thank you very much for tagging me in, and I agree with this article for one to make it far we need to collaborate at all stage. This is how we managed to improve our idea and projects and I would want to encourage everyone lets continue doing this and may our communication not just end here its should go beyond this competition.

    The strength of the team is each individual member. The strength of each member is the team.

  88. Growing people and helping them to perform at high levels is a key strategy for long-term success. When employees grow, their productive capacity increases. When their productive capacity increases, the capacity of the organization increases–it can do things better, or it can do things it was not able to do before. Kent M. Keith

  89. It is literally true that you can succeed best and quickest by helping others to succeed. Napoleon Hill

    If you want to lead on the highest level, be willing to serve on the lowest. John C. Maxwell

  91. In leadership writ large, mutually agreed upon purposes help people achieve consensus, assume responsibility, work for the common good, and build community. Joseph Rost

  93. If everyone is moving forward together, then success takes care of itself. Henry Ford

  94. Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence wins championships. Michael Jordan

  95. I know of no single formula for success. But over the years I have observed that some attributes of leadership are universal and are often about finding ways of encouraging people to combine their efforts, their talents, their insights, their enthusiasm and their inspiration to work together. Queen Elizabeth II

  96. Collaboration is a popular buzzword these days. Corporations and organizations encourage employees to share ideas, work together and integrate their efforts. The open office environment, which seems to get more popular from year to year, is designed on the principle of Collaboration.

    Our latest collection of inspirational collaboration quotes to appreciate the power of teamwork. Enjoy!

    Collaboration is a popular buzzword these days. Corporations and organizations encourage employees to share ideas, work together and inte
    Everyone may not agree, but those behind the open office concept believe that the absence of walls and dividers facilitates conversations and interactions as well as foster a sharing spirit and collaborative attitude. Whether this is true or effective in achieving the level of collaboration that its proponents profess, the fact is we typically accomplish more and attain greater results and benefits when we work together – when we indeed collaborate!

  98. But collaboration is about so much more than a tool for achieving business goals or personal dreams. Collaboration is about compassion, love, support, kindness, and the power that we gain when we share with each other and lean on each other.

  99. As we watched experts and volunteers from across the world come together to rescue 12 young men and their coach from a flooded cave in Thailand, we witnessed a clear display of compassion, and a heart-warming demonstration of loving support played out via the power of collaboration in defying the odds and winning!

  100. The companies that are doing this, for example, are Lafarge and Cemex in the building area. We’re doing this for urban construction, rural irrigation, insurance, timber etc. Well, this is only the beginning of the changes that are going to happen. Also, in Government, where are the new ideas going to come from? How are you going to change the system? This is your natural ally, and you could help with that.

  101. Then finally, this is obviously profoundly important for society. If you think that the problems are outrunning the solutions, you may well be right. But once we get to everyone a changemaker world, that can’t possibly be the case, because when something is stuck, everyone, everywhere is going to change it like smart white blood cell. Some people will say, “Boy this sounds very chaotic.

  102. Everyone a changemaker—how is that ever going to work?” I think this is something this group in particular would understand intuitively. People want to express love and respect in action, and we can trust them to be a changemaker for the good. We’ve got to help build the institutional arrangements to make that possible. That’s the management challenge of the moment. The people want to be contributors. And if we can let them, we have a great future and that’s what I think we’re all working on together.
    Thank you.

  103. 1. At the intersection where your gifts, talents, and abilities meet a human need therein you will discover your purpose.
    Aristotle
    2. Hell begins the day that God grants you the vision to see all that you could have done, should have done, and would have done, but did not do.“
    Goethe

  104. 3. Do not think money does everything or you are going to end up doing everything for money.
    Voltaire
    4. The real tragedy of the poor is the poverty of their aspirations.
    Adam Smith

  105. 7. It is not only for what we do that we are held responsible, but also for what we do not do.
    Moliere
    8. If a man will begin with certainties, he shall end in doubts, but if he will content to begin with doubts, he shall end in certainties.

    Thank you for the numerous insights and views on this topic as well.

  107. ‘Victory is much more meaningful when it comes not just from one person, but from the joint achievements of many’ This for me is the highlight of all i learnt. redefining how business ownership must be the core aspect of every business owners.

  108. like it’s usually said on from where I come from “Two heads are better than one”

  109. The people of Ghana really will help Japan! My worries disappeared, and I felt truly happy. I
    had always thought that Japan had to help Ghana. But through this experience, I realized that
    people in Ghana also wanted to help Japan in a time of n
    eed. You should bring your
    grandmother to Ghana, said my school teacher, who was worried for me. And a friend asked
    me, If I want to send money to Japan, who should I give it to
    The sad scenes following the earthquake in Japan were shown on TV every
    day. My heart
    ached, and my friends who watched TV were genuinely worried for Japan.
    In Ghana is a medical research institute named for Japanese scientist Hideyo Noguchi. The
    institute sent Ghanaian chocolate to children in Japan who were affected by the earthquake.
    Ghanaian chocolate is very tasty, so I am sure it made them very happy. It was not merely
    chocolate, but chocolate infused with care and encouragement.
    What I learned from this experience is that the world is one. Even between Africa and Asia
    which are so far away, news spreads easily. Usually, Japan is the one helping Ghana, but I
    realized that when Japan is in trouble, people in Ghana want very much to help.
    This is what I want to tell people in Japan. There are many people in Ghana who want to
    donate money to Japan, even though they cannot afford lunch for themselves. While we were
    collecting money for Japan, the lady who cleans our school happened to pass by. She carefully
    took out one cedi about US $0.65 wrapped inside her handkerchief
    and placed it in the
    donation box. The people of Ghana are truly kind.
    The desire to help people in need is shared by every human being. As long as people have this
    desire, the world will surely become a peaceful one, without war. This is what I came to
    feel through this experience

  110. That was about all I knew of Minamata disease, but there was more to the story.
    Several years later, large numbers of fish could be seen in the waters of Minamata Bay, which
    had been called the “sea of death.” Many rock oysters were found o
    n the rocks. And
    surprisingly, a new bacterium was discovered in the sea mud. This bacterium had acquired the
    ability to purify mercury. In other words, it had transformed itself in order to purify the sea.

  111. But this girl was special. I understood it when I saw her picture. She was bald after chemotherapy, very pale, hollow-eyed and SMILING. She had such a radiant smile! This impressed me greatly. And not only me. I saw that most of my classmates brought money for her the next day. How courageous must she be to be able to smile in that situation! Then for a moment I tried to imagine myself in her place. How scary must it be to know that your life might end in a day, a week, a month But she seemed not to be afraid. Then suddenly I got an insight – I will also die, all people die. The only difference was that she knew it could happen soon. Death became real to her but for me it used to be unreal, like a phantom. I became aware of part of my future, the part that is common for all of us.

  112. 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.

  113. In each case, we try to figure out what will truly engage the participant over the long term: what reflects
    his inclinations and desires, even those desires of which he might not be fully conscious. The method is
    akin to Frithjof Bergmann’s concept of New Work, where the question posed is: “What do we really,
    really want?” Thus the goal is not simply to accept the idea and then address possible steps to
    implement it, but rather to treat the initial idea as the raw material whose potential still needs to be
    explored.

  114. Opening Up the Idea
    In Germany, in a meeting with a conventional start-up adviser, the would-be founder brings the idea;
    the idea, so to speak, is simply “there.” In the Laboratory, on the other hand, the idea is questioned,
    examined, refined. Like a sculptor, a founder can work the raw material and create an intellectual
    abstraction that reflects not only the concerns of the “artist” more clearly and more precisely, but that
    also develops a better view of the market. It is important to work out something that’s “a better fit,”
    something that dovetails with the personality of the founder, something that “feels” better to him or
    her than the initial idea.

  115. Collaboration is the key in order to achieve our goal, as entrepreneurs we need to collaborate and build connections

  116. When you don’t have a boss or company tracking your progress, it’s easy to lose focus. Your freedom to do whatever you decide with your time will backfire if you don’t stick to a schedule and plan. Today, things like social media notifications can lead you down time-wasting rabbit holes.

    Create clear goals and benchmarks in your business. Don’t give in to activities that will distract you. Your time and energy needs be spent on strategies that grow your business. That’s where your focus should be.

  117. In spite of what appeared to be appropriate planning, which considered a variety of aspects, there’s still
    a high degree of risk in this type of start-up. A lot of capital is required, and much advance preparation is
    needed, all of which will require financing. In addition, there are high operating costs like rent, interest
    and personnel. Unless there are a lot of customers immediately, as well as over the long term, there’s a
    danger that this start-up will end up the same way that many other restaurants have ended up in the
    past. As far as the likelihood of survival goes, it’s like placing bets in a casino – in both cases, the chances
    of success are statistically low. I put all my money on Red 19 and fervently hope it wins. If my restaurant
    doesn’t work out, then I’ll lose all of my own money, my borrowed capital, and all my work will have
    been in vain. I call this launching a business à la Roulette. Not recommended.

  118. “At the intersection where your gifts, talents, and abilities meet a human need; therein you will discover your purpose.”
    Aristotle
    “Hell begins the day that God grants you the vision to see all that you could have done, should have done, and would have done, but did not do.“

    “The most effective kind of education is that a child should play amongst lovely things.”
    Plato
    “Where there is no desire, there will be no industry.”
    John Locke
    “It is not only for what we do that we are held responsible, but also for what we do not do.”

    Rene Descartes
    “How many theorems in geometry which have seemed at first impracticable are in time successfully worked out!”
    Archimedes
    “You cannot teach a person something he does not already know, you can only bring what he does know to his awareness.”
    Galileo Galilei
    “If others would think as hard as I did, then they would get similar results.”

  119. Aspen Institute’s Aspen Youth Entrepreneurship Strategy Group included collaboration as one of the elements of the entrepreneurial mindset, that “critical mix of success-oriented attitudes of initiative, intelligent risk-taking, collaboration and opportunity recognition.”

    In some ways, the essential role of collaboration goes against the ideas and stereotypes many people have of entrepreneurs — the tinkering genius loner toiling in a suburban garage.

    Yes, that does happen, but in reality, that part of the entrepreneurship arc is more closely aligned with persistence and drive than working alone.

    Instead, entrepreneurs are not only good at sharing information and ideas, they are often eager for the opinions and reviews of others and include the best ideas of others into their own thinking. While it may be possible to unearth a brilliant idea by yourself, getting from inspiration to implementation as a team of one is a very unlikely path.

  120. Fritz Fleischmann says that The nature of being an entrepreneur means that you fully embrace ambiguity and are comfortable with being challenged regularly. Especially when having to go out for startup fundraising. Choosing this career path is completely irrational because the odds of succeeding are dismal, but most succeed because of their unwavering belief, laser focus on delivering and persistence. This is something that we see constantly at CoFoundersLab company I lead, which is one of the largest networks for entrepreneurs.

    Starting a company is a riveting roller coaster of emotions with tremendous highs and at times, difficult lows, but one thing that always helps me through the ups and downs is to connect with some of the greatest minds. Below are just a few of my favorite quotes

  125. I believe that every connection can be a new collaboration, as long as you search to know someone and care about what really matters to them, maybe it seems impossible, but it is actually possible as long as you believe that every single person has its own value and respect that from bottom of your heart.

  126. Every successful initiative depends on the right & positive attitude. Definitely, if we want to bring a positive change in our society, first of all, we have to start by ourselves. Start to bring positive changes in your life, you can have a positive impact on society.
