Presidential Innovation Fellowship Nominee

I need everyones help. I have been contacted as a Nominee for the Presidential Innovation Fellowship I am very proud. There are several categories of the Presidential Innovation Fellowship Program.

I have a project that I have been working on for my entire adult life that will change the every major city in the United States of America. I will reduce gun violence, cut crime, help educate the uneducated or undereducated, employe our war heros’, create jobs, and do it with no impact to the national debt. I would like to impliment my program as part of the Development Innovation Ventures as participant in the Presidential Innovation Fellowship.

Development Innovation Ventures
Enabling the US government to identify, test, and scale breakthrough solutions to the world’s toughest problems.

Great ideas and breakthrough solutions come from all kinds of different places, and the US Agency for International Development (USAID) has recently pioneered a competitive method for sourcing and scaling innovations to drive faster, more cost effective, and more reliable results. It uses staged financing to make small investments in promising approaches and technologies and larger investments when there is clear evidence that the method is producing significant results. It accepts proposals from startup or established businesses, social enterprises, academic institutions or non-profits, both domestically and internationally. Over 2000 proposals have been reviewed and over 40 investments made across the world in a wide range of sectors, with many more under negotiation.

Building on this innovative approach to government financing, there are opportunities to scale this effort to reach millions of people more quickly and ensure that the program structure is sustainable (through either profitability or host country adoption, not long-term donor support). Of particular interest would be supporting enterprises that are scaling through the private sector. In addition, there is a desire among domestic Federal Government agencies to optimize the use of taxpayer resources and further their missions by adapting this model of broad competitions and tiered funding for additional missions, to produce the most cost-effective, evidence-based, and scalable solutions.

Age 50+ AKA AARP: Entreprenuer, Innovation Experts, Problem Solvers wanted for the ride of your life.

It’s time. ALL you age 50+ entreprenuers, Innovation Experts, Problem Solvers its time to unite and make our voices known once again. We (yes I am 53) need to come together and straighten out the entreprenuer, innovator and problem solver challenges that face the USA. I strongly believe that it was our generation that became the backbone of what made the United States of America the incredible country it became over the last 25 years.

Many of us have been cast off as to expensive, outdated, or perhaps the hated 3 letter word….”old”.

Budget Cuts part of the “New Norm”

Sadly the “New Norm” economically, housing market, job market and gas prices are still a work in progress. I dislike with a passion the pain and suffering being inflicted on lower and middle class Americans. The short and long term suffering that adults over age 50 have been experiencing have been profound and insulting.

For the past 30 years millions of proud Americans have worked long hours and help grow many successful companies. This age group has been the cement like foundation to so much of America’s success yet today many are cast aside as expensive and unworthy.

According to CNNMoney today 10’s of thousands jobs will be impacted when the cuts take place March 1. Like I said in an earlier blog post all three political parties are blaming each other but down deep they all realize it is a necessary action.
