How will you recruit new members for your venture?
New members will be recruited based on the degree of their involvement in the project’s vision. The degree of involvement can be assessed in the personal statement that the new members need to submit before the selection process starts. Interviews may be conducted to make sure that the new members are motivated and have written their personal statement by themselves.
How will you appoint new leaders and transfer leadership when the founding members want to leave the team?
New leaders will be elected by all the members of the team each year based on the majority’s choice. All the members of the board need to write their specific tasks and the procedures of work so as to optimize the transfer of knowledge from a board to another.
How will you continue your project in 6-months time or once you have spent all of its initial capital?
The SEALS team launched a package called “10 $, Double impact”. The schools in urban areas need to buy the package so as to be considered for the program. The price of the package is symbolic and will not exceed 10 $ per a student. The 10 $ will help cover the costs of the program of two high school students, one in the urban area and one in the rural area. The amount of money collected will help run the organization and will probably grow proportionally as their projects grow.
