STEPS

Abstract

Browser based program that helps people realise how to use their resources to create an abundant life.

It functions like a recipe program for projects where all the different materials are in a database. People log in what they have and the program shows what can be made from it.

The materials and projects in the database are collected with the intention of helping people towards ecological, healthy and fun living.

Additional Questions

Who is your customer?

People interested in setting up their own projects, especially those with interest in being sustainable and responsible towards their environment. Income Our income comes through product placement options. Hardware stores can connect to all the items they sell in the resource database and get a advertisement and/or mention in the nodes for the resources.

What problem does this idea/product solve or what market need does it serve?

This solves one of the biggest problems in sustainable resource based management, it answers the Question: What can I do? With this program people can easily figure out what they can do with resources at hand. They can develop with a resource based design method rather than setting up unrelated projects.

What attributes will make this idea/product successful? Why do you believe that those features will create success?

There is no similar product. Many groups are waiting for a solutions like this and I have connected to a few groups that are eager to get their hands on it and share with their members. Permaculture associations, Ecovillage design groups and Transition town movement are in great need for this development tool. I have communicated with a few key people in the English and Danish permaculture associations and they are very eager to have a chance of early access. Marketing plan is to work with these groups which I already have great connections to (except the Transition movement). Create key customers in the permaculture community, add the program to the resources taught in Ecovillage Design Education and build the reputation around intellectual design. Then advance into "Environment and Natural Resources" studies in universities where we get students to test the program and add to the database. This also adds the options for receiving grants based on academic research as this program can do what is done manually at great cost.

Explain how you (your team) will execute to make this idea/product successful? What gives you (your team) an advantage over others already in the market or new to this market?

I believe it will be a success because we will create momentum, we have a video, text and photo crew, social media group and more resources to back up our campaigns. We have a unique product that we can present well and get a strong spread in the first months. Programmers and graphic designers are skillful and will deliver a professional product. I have great connections in the sustainable living and intelligent design groups in Europe. These key customers will give us great stories and credibility as we select known figures to champion the product. My story is strong and can be used to grab media attention, everyone loves an underdog story and what is better than a man who couldn't walk and is now spending everything he has to improve the world?
