Problem: What problem is this initiative trying to address?

I would like us all to solve the problem of people and organizations working within their own silos and not combining forces to empower each other. From citizen activists to NGO to change organizations such as Uncharted, we suffer from the lack of a better way to make change happen, TOGETHER!!! When we accomplish creating a way of working together as a collective, there is no problem that can't be solved!

Solution Summary: What is the proposed solution? What do you see as its most promising aspects for creating shared value?

What Appenz (The platform for people!) will be a mobile application/portal that combines all of the great online services to what you want in a customized way. W.A. allows its users control of their Personal data while earning money for using What Appenz.   (Example: You enjoy shopping so you'd like to visit the malls while you explore a new city. What Appenz will automatically list all the malls and their information within a 50 miles ratios as soon as you arrive, showcase your favorite stores with real-time products shown with their availability, quick pay and delivery, displays the most convenient transportation & routes, list attractions and prices including quick pay, points of interest, downloadable maps & informative media, direct messaging for assistance, comments or ratings from friends or customers etc etc.. All the stuff you now need different apps for, together in one app.

Impact: What is the impact of the work to date? Specify both the social and the environmental impact of your work

I'm still developing the solution and in need of your assistance to evolve it into a scalable solution.

Financial sustainability plan: How is this initiative financially supported? How will you ensure its financial sustainability long-term?

This mobile platform will be self sustainable if developed for all people!

Unique value proposition: What makes your initiative innovative? How does your project differ from other organizations working in the same field?

What Appenz establishes UDI: Universal Data Income. Members will be paid for the data they share.

Founding story: Share a story about the "Aha!" moment that sparked the beginning of this initiative.

The moment two strangers asked me for my autograph, after I explained What Appenz in detail to them. It was definitely an Aha! moment for all of us because they said the most important part of everything I said was about the idea of being able to pay everyone for the data we should be getting paid for now. We all agreed, that is a win - win concept for everyone involved.

Where did you hear about the Nestlé Creating Shared Value Prize?

Great mission George. Good Luck Dear. But my understanding is you kinda have to develop the app first and get it going/established so Ashoka and/or Nestle would back you up. Wish you All the best. Ramy
