Business Services and How GEW Helped Bring It To the World
Being a part of the Global Entrepreneurship Week was not just a dream come true for me; but more of an eye opener. This is the place that I was sure I was going to get someone to invest in my business services. However, because it needed a lot of money, so that it could go to the heights that I envisioned starting out. The journey to get my business services where it right now has not been easy. Also, I have had to face a lot of challenges; that getting to this point has been. Now as I see it, the easy part.
Anyways, I came up with my business services tips and ideas while I was still in college. Also, I tried getting funding so that I could kick start it but to no avail. I tried a lot of banks. But there was none simply brave enough to invest in a nineteen-year-olds dream. Luckily for me, I had patented my idea. So I was sure that there was no way that anyone would steal it from me. This is a problem that a lot of brilliant young minds have faced.
They present their business services ideas
Suddenly, before you know it, they see it on TV. Some big corporation is also claiming that it is their own. If they hadn’t patented it, there is no way that you can be compensated. Let alone be heard in court. The ;fact that patenting requires some legal fees as well. In order for it to be done, which has also scared off a lot of young minds to abandoning their projects.
Therefore, I was called and told that I was going to be part of the brilliant young minds. That have been chosen to represent my country at this event. I was more than overjoyed. However, I was anxious at the same time. The reason was because I knew that this is exactly the kind of platform; that I had been waiting for to sell my idea to the whole world. I deal in business services; that helps disabled people access any medicine or healthcare that they need easily.
This is for those ideas
That was brought about by having grown up in a family that had a younger brother who was disabled. It hurt me so much seeing him going up like that. Most times he couldn’t even access the right kind of medication that he needed. Because of this, we did not know where to get it. This is what gave me the idea for that. Furthermore, I developed this incredible application that they can use on their mobile phones; to get the medicine. Or perhaps, any doctor that they needed that is close to them.
I remember looking for a chiropractor in the next town; which was about twenty miles from where we lived. While there was one in our hometown; but we had no idea. It is this kind of sentiment that made me develop this app. So far, I am pleased with the kind of response that it has gotten. This is what prompted the call from the Organizers at GEW.
What happened so far?
With that said, I have helped hundreds of people with this app. But I’m sure that if I get the right kind of funding; I will put it out there. Millions all across the world would get access to it. This is why this opportunity is just the best thing that has happened in my life. Although I must say; that getting accepted to the college of my dreams was also something that was quite big. Not till I got there and found out that there was nothing special about it. All we did was mostly have parties. And shout in the streets at night.
Under any circumstances, I am glad that I may atone for the few wrongs that I did on those nights. Thanks to this application that is helping hundreds of people. Before the end of the event; I had gotten a lot of proposals from different organizations; that were willing to invest in my idea. Some even showed me in the span of a few minutes how we would go about the marketing. As well as making the application even better. I am glad that I got to be a part of this. And I hope that much more brilliant minds get this opportunity too. As there are a lot of bright ideas out there; that could be very profitable.
