Detail of our concept pitch

FTW Solutions aims to develop sustainable agricultural innovation for protecting Mother-nature’s valuable resources and using them in an efficient manner in order to solve global scarcity of food.

One, two or three objectives of our project.
1. To render humanitarian assistances to People from Third World Countries in solving their malnutrition and are provide them with resources to attain basic necessities such as food and water.
2. To create and/or rejuvenate the traditional methods in cultivating food and obtaining clean water.
3. To incorporate innovative thinking approach in resolving this potential global issue

Sustainable Agriculture is an improved system developed towards innovating the traditional farming methodologies. This system will recreate the hydroponics technology from attaining water via hydrophobic resources and nutrients from human/animal waste, to create a sustainable system for survival for these people be created to enable people from Third World Countries to attain potable water and cultivate basic staples and vegetables as crops for harvesting. Users will only require the apparatus, seeds and natural weather condition to commence their cultivation of crops. Our product requires minimal set up cost and technical know-how for achieving highest productivity returns through harvesting these crops. Apart from the daily greens, users are able to grow sustainable staple food such as rice and corns through our product. Eventually, this helps to ensure their nutritional intakes are well taken care of.

Our product offers a 2 in 1 solution as compared to our competitors that offer solely either one of the solution. Our prototype requires a low-cost initiation, minor education chasm and the basis resources are easily obtainable as compared to competitions whom focus heavily on technological functions and focus on a different niche market of customers. Through our initial product testing, we discovered the phenomenal potential behind our product towards feeding 9 billion of people. Our product can be flexibly increased in size to ensure the production of crops for feeding the entire village or it can be scaled down to produce sufficient food for a family. In addition, our product is able to produce drinking water through the unique hydrophobic coating which helps to collect water through natural condensation. These water will be funnel through filters before flowing into container for storage purposes.

Presently, we are looking to leverage on social entrepreneurship factors in the value of providing a societal cause first prior to profitability. FTW Solutions is seeking funding from various non-government organizations to back this product and create a global brand-name in the industry. Apart from the funding from NGOs, we can look forward to striking partnership with those whom are keen to bring our product across different territories to resolve global hunger. Alternatively, we will consider licensing or management consultancy with potential partners to impart our technical knowledge to them for expanding these skillset to more people whom are in dire need of it. With our primary market inclined towards the Third World Countries, our system will be expanded towards First World Countries to aid in the development of sustainable agriculture for urbanized area to aid space constraints and educations institutions for learning purposes.
