Scaling the Solution: How do you intend to scale your activities over the next two years (e.g., reach new markets, diversify solutions, etc.)? What will make this possible?
It would go from a digital platform that is used by people who are more interested in being sustainable, to a widely adopted program that will become a trend and used by most grocery stores and restaurants.
This will begin as an advocacy group then become a well established system through promoting, word of mouth, and advertising the benefits of its capabilities through traditional means (marketing and social media).
Financial Sustainability: What is your business model to ensure financial sustainability?
The recycling centers can sell the biodiesel fuel and highly nutritious compost for a low price. The costs can go to supporting the upkeep and maintenance of the alert system used by various businesses. Also there will be grants to keep the outcome of the system successful.
Experience: Please provide examples of any previous entrepreneurial initiatives you have pioneered.
I once created a small nonprofit to donate highly nutritious, low maintenance, free organic gardens to low income families as well as teaching them gardening and permaculture skills. This was supported by a small grant fund of 1500 over two years in which I was able to help 16 families. Nearly half of these families continued to grow their own food and were successful.
