Audience: Who have you identified as your customer/recipient groups and do these groups value your solution for different reasons? How do you engage different customer/recipient groups to deliver your solution?
We have identified the Gawad Kalinga Village community (a government-sponsored village) of Sta. Rita, Las Pinas City, as our recipient group who values MUtrition for the following reasons: a) to address their need for a sustainable and affordable source of nutritive food b) to maximize use of their limited land area and c) to give the residents a sense of ownership of this endeavor. We engage our customers to deliver by delegating maintainance of the farm to residents and giving seminars to inspire them.
Scaling the solution: How would the prize money and publicity help you to achieve your objectives over the next two years?
We believe that the being awarded the prize money and the consequent publicity gained from this competition would help our endeavor be made known and have a wider network, especially for those interested to replicate this model for other communities outside the country. Furthermore, having additional funding entails scaling up of our model for use of other communities in the same town, or to a larger scale, of all Gawad Kalinga Villages nationwide, in collaboration with various agencies of the government and non-profit organizzations we are currently partnered with and future partnerships to be forged in the future as well.
Experience: Please provide examples of any previous entrepreneurial initiatives you have pioneered
Some of our past entrepreneurial initiatives aside from MUtrition include Games Night, a drinking party which featured a variety of games, including board games, casino games, video games and drinking games, catering to Fraternity and Sorority members, as well as iHarana Mu (Serenade), a Valentine's Day event where members accepted requests to serenade whomever they choose and provide them with gifts such as flowers and chocolates.
