1. Ento Bread
Using the Ethiopian pests of grasshoppers and termites to fashion both bread for human exports and for livestock additive substitutes for unhealthy meat byproducts, there could be an expansive new food created in Ethiopia. While the Ethiopian culture does not embrace entomopagy (insect eating by humans), each neighboring African does and a significant export of the Ento bread can be developed. Likewise, the adoption of insect enriched livestock food can become a significant in-country and exportable product. (see ICCO and Ento attachments)
2. THREE Wheel Advertising
I developed a patent that used the underutilized US rental car fleets as third party moving billboards, bringing the concept to the thousands of taxis called Bajais throughout Ethiopia. With an average monthly rental charge of $300-$500 per advertising wrapped advertisement, the thousands of taxis represent a tremendously profitable application of this very unique advertising medium. (see 3 wheel advertising treatment)
3. Wastewater to Clean Water
There is a non-mechanical, fully anaerobic method of turning waste into water that I had reverse engineered and patented and is perfect for Ethiopia as well as much of the rest of the world. The prototype of this exists in 300 installations in Central and South America but my efforts to bring this to the US and other areas was not accepted, so I had it reverse engineered. (see patent pending attached-wastewater)
4. Portable MRI(s)
The MRI industry is 20-30 years old in America with thousands of advanced machines. There are only 3-4 primitive MRI scanners in Ethiopia and the one in private hands generated $4mm in it's first 3 years of operation, with 38.000 scans. The net is estimated to be over $3mm for the single machine, which is also at the lowest end of technical capabilities. I propose to introduce portable MRIs of significantly higher technology to expand and capitalize this emerging market.
5. Premium Ethiopian Coffee Exporting
Ethiopia invented coffee. I have a contact with the finest quality Ethiopian coffee. If a brand is established with say the "Imperial" designation, reflecting the 3000 years of Ethiopian Royal Lineage, with proper roasting, packaging and marking...the single best quality, highest price coffee in the world could be created and sold.
6. Entrepreneurship Education
The first Ethiopian Investment Company acquisition I made involves the entrepreneurial services and financial consulting fields, which could be scaled to educate and train the next generations of Ethiopian entrepreneurs, creating a significant tuition cash flow and untold opportunities to arrange financing and provide much needed services (financial modeling, business plans, capital raising) for thousands of new Ethiopian businesses.
Taking the nearly absent industry of fishing and expanding it immeasurably with tried and true "aqua fishing" techniques, we could effective start, capture and profit by this desperately needed innovation. Owning a complete food industry (fishing) for both in-country and export can be extremely lucrative. (see link below)
8. Proposal for Kidney Patients
There is a severe lack of kidney dialysis machines to serve the escalating incidence of diabetes in the Ethiopian population. We have teamed up with a local Ethiopian effort to establish a chain of kidney dialysis centers throughout the country to combat this life threatening epidemic.
9. ETHIOPIAN BEEF ENHANCEMENT PROJECT
Ethiopia ranks as one of the world's major breeding and exporting countries in the world. Because of the inadequate pastoral support system in Ethiopia, especially for adequate livestock feed for the cattle, the taste is very bland compared to the livestock exported from other countries like Brazil. These other countries enjoy far greater prices for their beef than Ethiopia.
I have a client in Ethiopia named Assefa Aderis, a noted US-educated scientist and economist who has been researching the enhancement of Ethiopian cattle through better diets and cross breeding. His plan to create a much better tasting and more robust cattle in Ethiopia is attached here. This gentleman is my client to raise capital for his venture.
I have also been engaged by a Texas cattle rancher that owns a patent that produces the world's finest tasting beef. (see attached pictures) I am raising capital for some of the other interests of this Texan and he has agreed to allow me to join forces with him in financing the cattle project by taking his advanced breeding stock combined with his financial resources.
