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

The problems that we are trying to address are: 1. The lack of digital literacy among waste-entrepreneurs (khaalisisi friends) 2. The huge gap between waste-sellers and waste-entrepreneurs. 3. The absence of data on recyclable waste. 4. The absence of recycling culture in Nepal.

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

Technology will play a huge role - making it as simpler and convenient for waste-sellers and waste-entrepreneurs to use. Also culture will be important since recycling is still a new concept to people in Nepal.

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?
