Weekly ENTREPRENEUR Zoom Mtg – Sunday @ 10:00am

Thank you to all SHC members for your time joining me in the Entrepreneur last zoom session on 10 Jan 2021.I shared with members how to generate ideas. An idea is to address a pain or gap.

I used Rest.com.sg as an example. Rest.com.sg is an online portal for advertiser to place their ads at an affordable price.

Currently, most online ads are control by big techs. There are also many types of payments. Not many SMEs and startups have the financial resources to place ads on those current online social media.  Thus Rest.com.sg is to address this gap.

During the next session, I will share with members how to validate your idea.
Also next session, will have the honor to let our member, Dennis H, to share more info for a complimentary tour of GUI.

Please do zoom in this Sunday 17 Jan.
Till we meet again, have a great week ahead.

  1. Hi David
    I saluted for you efforts in chairing the Entrepreneur zoom sessions since Y2020 and still continuing in Y2021 too.

    Attended your 1st meeting today (Jan 10 2021) together with DennisHar, ChanKN, FredaLim and SallyFoo which overrun for another 30mins as topics in discussion seems endless..

    David, you shared your part of interest, e.g. REST which simply to b broken Rest, Exchanges, Sales and Travels and a domain name had been registered under http://www.rest.com.sg and hopefully will be able to put in use soon. David, please further elaborate if needed. David’s goal s to get REST to be operational internationally which he is hopeful that it can be. Any members are proficient in Chinese, can help to share any good name in Chinese – Was told that there will be a prize if the name is selected and put in use. Currently, what run into his mind is “Zhu Huan Yi You”… Any more interesting names, any challenges, start to put on your thinking cap and let us heard from you…… :)

    DennisH shared another interesting project named “GUI” – Ground-Up-Initiative program. You can google more details under https://groundupinitiative.org/farm and he most willing to conduct a free tour for members whom had been participating the Entrepreneur Zoom sessions to showcase his start-up project. Another post with details on date and time will be published once all details have been finalised. As we are still in safe distancing rule, only 8 members can attend for a start. He also will be considering to open up other members too after the 1st meet-up tour. FYI, usually this is a paid tour for viewing but DennisHar will be giving the selected members FOC. A very kind gesture of his too…

    Looking forward to see more members for this Entrepreneur Zoom session every Sunday, at 10am..

    Cheers… Dolly

    VERMICOMPOSTING: Recycling Wastes into Valuable Organic Fertilizer.

  3. Fellow SHC members. During our last zoom session, I shared with members about ideas. There 2 types of ideas. One is incremental eg iPhone from 10 to 11, small changes in the feature. The other is radical, eg from VCD to DVD.
    More important, you have to validate your assumption if the idea is feasible.
    Thus you have to conduct market survey.
    The next session, will share with members types of market research.
    Also Mr. Dennis H is conducting a tour to GUI with some of the members. They will share their experience of the trip next Sunday session.
    Look forward to members coming to next Sunday Entrepreneur zoom at 10.00am.
    Thank you and stay safe

  4. Fellow SHC members. During the last zoom session, I shared with members how to validate your ideas. Members also shared their outing experience at GUI. We discovered the importance of recycle and reuse. Members also touch on operations of kitchen process. From here I like to share with members, as an entrepreneur, you must have basic knowledge in Management Practice.
    For the next session, I will share with members drafting a business plan using a Business Model Canvas.

    • Dear fellow SHC members. After more than 4 months of the zoom session, there were several ideas shared and discussed.
      Glad to notice SHC members do have the entrepreneur spirit.
      Whatever ideas members generated, it MUST address a pain point.
      Also one must not fall in love with their ideas. A member suggested a project and find it not feasible and drop the idea. This is an example of never fall in love with your idea.
      During the last session, home cook project was discussed.
      I will share with members the feasibility of the home cook project during this coming Sunday zoom at 10am.

  15. Fellow SHC members. Trust all are doing fine. Last Sunday, one of our members share with us Worm Tea brewing. This worm tea acts as a fertilizer without any chemicals. Was told someone has a potted curry leaves and not growing very well. However when this Worm tea was added into the potted curry leave, the curry leaves bloom again. Also we discussed about private home dining. According to URA/HDB guide line, as long you don’t advertise publicly, don’t use commercial equipment, is OK to have private home dining even in HDB estates.
    We shall explore further in our next zoom this Sunday, 16 May at 10am, the Worm Tea brewing and any doubt about private home dining.
    Till then stay safe always

    On this note we must acknowledged our founder Terence and Jean for their kindness to make the zoom session possible for us.

  22. Fellow SHC members. By now we must have read our Founder message. How to fund SHC without collecting any membership fees from members. On our part, let us join hand together to brainstorm what business activity is viable. So far, a suggestion is to do ecommerce. Another sugg is to open a stall and sell food.

    One issue we must emphasis is that whatever idea you generated and transform into a business, it belongs to you and not SHC club.
    Do tune in this Sunday 11 July at 10am.
    Till then, stay safe.

  25. Fellow SHC members. During last Sunday session, one of the members is considering to lease an agriculture land.
