The problem you address is highly relevent. Yet, the information you provide to me is very vague. For example, what is the innovation (technological or business innovation) that you invent, based on solar thermodynamics and optical amplifiers? Your video is a nice demonstration but still leaves me with more questions than answers. My first and most important recommendation to you is: Get a seasoned tech entrepreneur with international exposure into your team, and think from the perspective of investors. Key tag here is "investment-readiness".
My understanding from your presentation is that your prototype is almost ready (with some testing and debugging left to do) and that you do already look at marketing as the next major step. I do also understand that your invention is based on a mathematical model that is "determining for how long the compression and condensation sub units should be turned on and when to turn off", which leads to significant reduction of energy consumption of the system, compared to WaterGen - but that your system is apart from that based on the same principle like WaterGen.
This is an excellent project, including the partnership with KAKIS. Two questions I would still have: What are your growth plans, and how do you plan to protect your intellectual property from competitors? I could imagine that speed to market - in case you cannot fully protect your intellectual property - is essential.
This is an excellent solution and approach. There is one question I still have when going through your presentation: What exactly is your intellectual property (your technical innovation), and how do you protect it? What is really new and unique? I do not say that it lacks uniqueness but that it is difficult for me to catch it from your presentation. If not technologically (combination of solar, filters etc.), it might even be in the distribution system?
Under the Business Model question, you state that "Our business model is selling sanitary pad with very competitive price". As a business model description, this is rather vague. Later in the questionnaire and under a different topic, you state that "Presently, we are in the process of establishing licensed share company who manufacture organic and affordable sanitary pad for Ethiopian market and seek venture capital financing willing to take a bet on our ideas." This is much more of a business model description: Own production versus licensing.
The team size seems a bit small for ambitious growth plans, although these growth plans are not really clear either. With respect to the market size and potential, speed to market is certainly essential. Thus, a few more information about growth plans and related management and HR plans would be helpful. Also, it is not clear what the intellectual property is, and the intellectual property is protected. In other words: Is this a new invention, or based on an existing and maybe even widely available technology?
Your proposal is clearly and convincingly written. The two things I’d like to know (so I know you’re credible) are: 1) why hasn’t this been tried in the past? Hard to believe it’s never been tried in your target city. If not, then explain lessons learned from elsewhere, b/c I know incentives programs are now at work. 2) What’s the relationship between The Irish team members and the Nwekwuru? Please convince me that equity will be retained by him, and that this won’t become just a Euro-American asset.
Elevator pitch: what’s tier 4? Don’t use jargon if you’re not gong to explain it. Or introduce it later. You should know that clean cooking stoves are one of the most common development projects. Hundreds or thousands have been offered. Most failed. To be credible you need to be up-front about showing you’re aware of this legacy, and why yours is better. HAVE YOU DEMO’D IT WITH PEOPLE? Clarify — this is important.
Elevator pitch is vague and says nothing. Investors will not be impressed. I have no idea what you’re doing or what problem you’re addressing. Is it really necessary to call it a problem? Without anything more specific, it sounds like you’re using buzz words without any substance: augment ed reality? Machine learning? Really?? Why are these needed to plant trees. Why is an app necessary? Why not people with local connections? Where do the trees get planted? There must be some competitors - be honest. The challenge here is not the software but the partnerships.
Elevator pitch is weak. You don’t need to specify Fishcher-Tropsch by name — instead say what it does in the simplest language possible. When you do explain it — cut out the textbook science (molar ratios etc) — not needed here. Instead, explain how YOU ARE USING THIS PROCESS. Don’t give science lessons in the abstract. You’ve fabricated the gasifier? That’s not convincing. Say how big, where, with what funding. How will you get your customers? Be specific. Why has nobody done this before?
