The Need: What problem are you trying to solve?
I want to solve the problem of garbage in my country. Everybody say to me: "what you can do with collecting a paper?!" I know, we need to start to solve small problem. A lot of people in Moscow want to collect paper and recycle it, but they don`t know how to do it, or they don`t have time or they just to lazy to bring this paper for recycling point!
The Solution: What is your solution? Be specific!
I decide to take away the papers that the citizens will collect.The cost of this service will be low, 5 dollars a month (I will take their papers when their special barrel will be full (25 kilos of paper).This special barrel i will give for them. They will need just collect paper and wait when my car will take away their papers.
1.a 1-ton cargo vehicle;
4.special "barrels" for collecting paper, for the start i need 60 barrels;
5.rent of garage for storage of the collected papers;
The Model: Walk us through a specific example of how your solution makes a difference; include your primary activities
I start to collect paper by myself! I adjusted barrel in my flat and start to put paper,then my parents start to do the same. I start to talk about it Facebook and Livejournal,my friends start to say that they also want to make the same!Write now i collect a paper among my friends only when i have an opportunity (I try to find a car and collect a papaer).
The Marketplace: Who are your peers and competitors? Identify others also working to address the needs you are and what differentiates you from them. What challenges could these players pose to your success or growth?
I don`t have competitors because we have similar services but they suggest to citizen another conditions. Person have to colletc 500kilos of paper and then the car will come to you.It is impossible. I don`t want to make money on this, so that`s why the cost of this service is so low. I need only that this project become self-supporting and I can continue to help our planet.
