Please provide examples of any previous entrepreneurial initiatives you have pioneered.
When I was in high school I volunteered for Habitat for humanity. After the first two builds that I took part in the offshore funding was withdrawn and so we had to generate the money to start any new builds that we could attend. Teaming up with dedicated friends we kickstarted multiple fund raising initiatives that generated sufficient funding to build two houses.
Our pilot preschool that we're working on has involved some hard work. It is the first time that an EcoBrick building is approved in this country (to be built within the urban environment), the first time that the entire EcoBrick wall can be fully recycled, and the first double story EcoBrick building globally. To build it we will need 6000 EcoBricks. To collect these we set up a series of local drop off points that reward EcoBrick donations with discounts/small prizes. This system meant that we rapidly developed a loyal following and all members of society have been included.
Beyond your existing team, who else are you working with to achieve your objectives, eg partners, advisors, mentors?
I have mentioned that we formed partnership with architecture firm (SVA International) and an engineering firm (Aurecon) who add a wealth of knowledge and in kind support.
The Red Bull Amaphiko Academy just recently came on board as a mentoring entity and help out wherever they can.
