Bros, I get your point. We're two different individuals. Your ideas and mine ain't same, I'm naturally gifted when it come to creativity and ideas. I'm a creative thinker. Have you received invitation letter from any international country? Have your exhibition be accepted? My exhibition is currently at Pennsylvania US, accepted since last year April, until now, I don't have the acceptance fees to begin my production. Although I shall comply very soon.


Okay. I don't want to drag this any further.

I studied and have practiced entrepreneurship. I have also taught it in non academic and academic settings (undergraduate and PG levels), so I can tell you will nearly 100% certainty that people who are scared of their ideas being stolen do not make good entrepreneurs. That's by the way.

Production businesses are capital intensive. The cost of securing a space along is more than enough to setup and manage some other kind of business to BEP. How much more the cost of equipment, labor and raw materials? I am looking at ideas that will blossom into something meaningful, without boring a hole in the pockets of the promoters. Except other members insist, production is a no for me.

You should first tell people about what skills you have any experience you have with respect to managing a business.

Where have you worked before?

Who can vouch for your integrity?

Why should people who have never met you before nor done business with you trust you with their money?

What value are you bringing to the table (Not necessarily in form of cash)?

Your previous comment had at least 5 points to buttress my earlier stand but I saw that you would likely be bias having been to the US and trying to use it as a shield. Hence, I didn't want to take it any further.

My other account got banned, hence I'm using this. For clarity sake, if we finally agree on this, nobody is contributing a kobo to me. But for knowledge sake, I have an M.Sc. in Bus Admin. I have managed my own very small businesses (Online and brick and mortar businesses). I registered the first CV writing company in Nigeria, CV Wizards. Today, I still operate this business, but in my own name. You can checkout my website, www.patrickokunima.com . This is a faceless forum, but I am not a faceless person. Google Patrick Okunima, that's my name, and to the best of my knowledge, there's no other Patrick Okunima. I'm an old member on this forum. If you don't know me, some other persons do. If I have defrauded anyone on this forum, it's easy to find me out.

That said, I am not soliciting for people to contribute money to me. If we proceed with this, we all we agree on who to hand over the funds to. That person is not me, because I don't like holding other people's money.

By posting with a different account, i am violating the rules of this forum, so I may not respond to comments, until my account, PatrickOkunima is unbanned,

Thanks.

I see. But I've not been to the US, I'm currently still in Nigeria. Neither I'm using my previous feedback as buttress or not, I'm only trying to make it clear that our ideas might not be same, we're two individuals with different brains and thinking. I specialise mainly on modification and inducing new ideas in tech. I only crave for the opportunity to showcase my skills and exhibitions

I'm interested. I'm into crowd funding too which is earning good money for me. But I cherish this idea too. Count me in!

Yay! My ban has expired.

Reason for the ban

In my second response to a poster scared of his idea being stolen, I cited examples with 5 Nigerian startups and how much f.u.n.ding they've secured (Only to emphasize how much potentials they've got), without their ideas been stolen, and I got banned. Perhaps, it's forbidden to mention those names on this forum.

BTW, I believe we've gotten enough candidates. Tomorrow, we move to the next phase.

Stay tuned!
Re: Let's Pool Resources Together And Start A Business by PatrickOkunima(m): 7:13pm On Mar 16
This phase closes by 11:59pm today. From tomorrow, we move into the next phase, ideas sharing. Remain Blessed!
Re: Let's Pool Resources Together And Start A Business by PatrickOkunima(m): 8:41am On Mar 17
SECOND PHASE

We're in the ideas sharing stage. If you're not comfortable sharing your idea here, we can move to a more secure place. Personally, I will prefer an idea that can be launched fully on the internet. The reason is simple:

1. Low startup and running cost - Internet businesses are far more cheaper to start than brick and mortar businesses. What it'll take to run one for a year is not even enough to rent a shop in some parts of Lagos. I started my first business (www.patrickokunima.com) with less than N10,000 over 10 years ago. Today, I can get more than that amount in one order, and I still do not have an office.

2. We have different skill set and some people may not be willing to put in some effort in running and growing the business - So, the best option is for us to establish a platform where the only investment one will be committing to the business is his money, not time. Part of the fund will be used in building and maintaining the platform, while the rest will be spent on advertising. There are plenty of businesses out there with this model, I don't want to cite examples.

The floor is open, let's have your ideas (Like I said earlier, If majority are not okay sharing here, I have a secured location we can all migrate to).

well, I don't accept your proven or rather your findings about individuals who don't choose to share their business idea publicly. I'm a different person when it comes to such. Production is the key, something that will last for years to come. If you don't want to spend more on productivity, why not go for farming (Agriculture). I always think big and aim big. If I give your suggestions, you'd complain about start up. First, I always survey the area which it needed. If it nationwide, there's something we still currently lacking. Recycling, turning of waste into meaningful product.
i have once thought about this kind of idea but you know its quite capital intensive when it comes to buying the machines.

Very very capital intensive.

The floor was opened yesterday for people to share ideas, and up till this moment none has been shared, not even pepper and tomatoes supply. Is it that we're bereft of ideas or we're scared of idea theft? I sincerely hope it's the latter. I've created a Whatsapp group for this.

yes, get loan if you can. Meet the people who can help you, politicians, pastors, Emir etc. How wish I have the connection, I'd pay my acceptance fees already. Just $899. One of my exhibition was accepted in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania US, still till now. Next month making it a year. What a country I live in!
