Printer-friendly versionDownload PDF Comments My friend, Great to see that you have found the courage to step up and help with issues in the community. This is not an easy process, but you should never stop trying and never stop learning. Don't forget that you need to understand the problem in detail before trying to get an answer. Albert Einstein said that if he had 1 hour to solve a problem, we would spend 55 minutes to understand the problem and 5 minutes to solve it. Keep being a changemaker my friend! Here is my feedback, it might sound harsh but it is with good intentions. Think of if you work on a 20 story building and you are with you an investor in that elevator, how would you pitch your idea? Talk more about the problem! Why is this important? And then in the end hint at the solution. Sell the problem then sell the solution. What IF: Don’t use I, use we; sounds more powerful and realistic. It would be more powerful if you said something like, What if I could reduce the high rate of malnutrition in Nigeria through technology or whatever … Problem: How many people are having this problem? Why is this happening? Why is this not solved yet? What is the root cause of this problem? Much work needs to be done to understand the problem. Ask people. Talk to 30 families that are having problem with malnutrition. Solution: How are you going to make it affordable? You cannot just eat cereal, you would need milk or water, how are they going to afford those? Talk more about the solution. Example: How are you going to get the cereal and make it affordable? How are you going to sell it? Where are they going to buy it? Much work needed. Sustainability: They might give you funding once, but they want to see that you also generate revenue and can scale. You need to find a repeatable and scalable model. Founding Story: Good, I like your story. Look at the Green Brox Machine Online and see what they are doing in schools to get more food. Also, please check the grammar. Team, Who are you team members? Who does what, what are the roles within the team? The team is the most important part of this application. Thank you very much for this wonderful feedback. I will use every bit of you advice into improving this project. Am grateful.
