Starting a new industry is exciting, challenging. No instruction manuals exist. But unlike the previous breakout industries, we have step by step guide, a roadmap to success. We’re not alone. Every other cooperative will pitch in and help, with everything they have except money (they must protect for their stakeholders).
Starting a new industry plus ushering in the 4.0 industrial revolution is doubly challenging Not only do we need growers, but we need the equipment and training for precision farming. Not only do we need manufacturers, but we need equipment and training for smart machines. Not only do we need growers and manufacturers, but we need to build our market and explain the need and benefits for all of it. Think about Facebook and Apple, Mark Zuckerberg and Steve Jobs didn’t just start a business, or offer a project, they defined the concepts of social networks and smartphones respectively as they stand now, ¬that is what makes starting a business in a new industry. It is fun, but not easy.
On the upside, if we get it right, we not only get to build a new industry, but a new economy of small businesses, and save the air, water soil of our planet for all our children and their children. We will write the rules of future business dealing, based on the 7 principles and the ethics rules.
If you want to be part of the fun, donate what you can, and we will keep you posted on the progress (but will never ask for more money).
