Make Your Mark Competition

To satisfy the requirements of Creative Entrepreneurship we have to enter a competition related to entrepreneurship. To complete this requirement Nate, Eric, and I have teamed up and are competing in the Make Your Mark competition at Lawrence Tech.

Our plan is called the Green Guardians, which involves a design of a transportable home and collection unit for homeless people and the strategy of the plan is to self empower the homeless to improve their living condition. The tactics for the plan is to have the homeless people collecting recyclables and receive a small pay. This will be executed through donations and sponsorship from companies and businesses.

Two weeks ago we pitched our plan to the judges for the competition and we received some helpful feedback on what we could possibly do to improve and execute this plan. One of the suggestions we were given was to have a focus group to see what other people think about our ideas especially to see if homeless people would be willing to participate in a program like this. This is a great idea because many people believe that homeless people aren’t willing to help themselves and that’s how they have ended up the way they are. With this focus group we could decide whether or not homeless people would want to do this program or we could find out what to change to get them to want to be involved.

We received some great feedback and advice at this idea pitch. We are planning on implementing this focus group and we are hoping it turns out good for our idea, but as we have learned in class it doesn’t hurt to hear the opinion of others. We may also hear some ideas which could implemented with our plan, which could make it more appealing to people. Our goals for this project are to be given the opportunity to implement this plan and have an impact on our community.
