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?
aimwith will conduct a feasibility study to determine shared goals, identify measurable outcomes that will serve as baseline and attract investors to this project by raising $50,000 on indiegogo's crowdfunding platform, on Nov. 13th.The success of the project along with the award will support us greatly in advancing aimwith’s growth goals: Building out our online platform as a social equity marketplace and funding capabilities, attracting the necessary talent to do this, developing strategic partnerships, aligning our projects with the UN's Sustainable Development Goals. Lastly, receiving this award would help us to generate significant awareness with a larger crowdfunding community, all in order to help people invest in change, together.
Financial Sustainability: What is your business model to ensure financial sustainability?
aimwith will generate revenue through advertisement on our online platform. At the project level, Neighbour's Friend charges a fee to the community for picking up their waste. In the long term, our plan is to help expand to a full scale recycling and energy operation creating more revenue and jobs.
