What is the benefit or value you're creating for your business?
The growth of the enterprise will be modular. Each module will involve 50 collection points and 1000 distribution points. Each module would employ 8 to 10 heads. Since investment will be required only for 2000 cold boxes and 5 distribution mini vans, the entire operation replication would be self sustained and regenerative.
How are you leveraging internal resources (funds, time, knowledge, etc.) to support this initiative?
As already mentioned, the initial investment required is very low and which is available from my personal savings. The working capital shall be generated from the fees charged to the hotels & restaurants. I will devote devote 100% of my time and over initial months and year, will garner support from within friends and contacts.
Expand on your answer, explaining the long-term funding and support plan.
The growth can be limitless if international charitable organisations can be sold the idea. The expansion can be first within country itself in every metro city. With expansion and addition of refirgated vans, the scope can be broadened to include outskirts of metros and villages. The knowledge thus gained can be further replicated to Asian & Afircan countries.

Currently none. But I have contacts through NGO's and coporates to push it forward.
