Personal Safety Gadgets - Jack’s Curated Business Idea

 Greetings to one and all.

This is Jack Lookman welcoming you to our series:

Jack’s Curated Business Ideas 

Today’s topic is:


The content was created at the height of insecurity in Nigeria and some other African countries

The content may still be relevant in other aspects of insecurity, whether domestic or otherwise

Let’s dive in:


Some of us may be aware of reported insecurity

In Nigeria and some other countries

People get kidnapped

And released at the parting of cash

In some cases, when the ransom is paid 

The asking price gets escalated

In some cases, lives are lost

Creating lots of heartache

This issue affects local people

As well as travellers

It is gold mine for kidnappers

As sad as may be


Lets take a critical look 

Through entrepreneurial eyes

This presents a business opportunity

That may bring hope


Could personal safety gadgets be helpful?

Could there be a variety of such gadgets?

Could there be a value chain…?

Involving different players?

Could Engineers play a part?

Could marketers play a part?

Could designers play a part?

Could salesmen do?…

Could distributors do?

Could there be a place for product finders?

Could the gadgets be manufactured in Nigeria?

Could they be sourced from else where?

Could job opportunities be created?

Could wealth opportunities be created?

Could there be a variety of gadgets?

Could investors be involved?

Could there be collaborators?

Could this be in line with the law?

Could this save lives?

Could it keep minds at rest?

Could it take pressure off government?

Could it attract investors?

Could kidnappers be rehabilitated?

Could this add value to society?

Could this do other things?

Could it solve problems?

Could it reduce crime?

Could it bring the best out of society?

Could it save lives?

Could it eliminate kidnapping?

What do you think?

Getting The Best Of Volunteers And Staff - Jack’s Curated Business Idea


Voluntary Organisations, Non Governmental Organisations 

And Charity Organisations

Generally use volunteers

Some, if not most of the volunteers, are not formally trained

This may be due to financial constraints

Or because there are no proper systems and structures in place

Yet the output from volunteers

Could be multiplied;

And resources effectively managed

Time and effort may be effectively used

And the stress and strain on all parties minimised

All it takes is an investment in training

This may be once or in instalments

The training could contain specific and generic content

Membership sites could be leveraged for suitable access.

Audio, video and text could be used

The content could come from ‘experts’

Internally, externally or both

Volunteers and staff could have access as necessary

The access could be paid- for, by the organisation

Individuals or by sponsors

Although there may be cost implications

The return on investment  could be multiplied

Apart from adding value to the organisation

It also adds value to the individuals, community and society

You may ask how this is a business idea

As a Content Creator

You could create and articulate the content

You could either be the custodian…

Or you sell or manage it; 

Terms and condition will apply

You could replicate this business model to different organisations

And make money by so doing

Some skills required for the business, are:

-basic information technology skills

-basic video editing skills

-negotiation skills

-communication skills

-inter-personal skills

-Research and Development skills

-networking skills

-marketing skills

If you don't have the skills

You could partner or collaborate with third parties

In order to compliment yours

Some resources required, are:

-digital devices  -e.g tablet or computer

-access to the internet

-human resource (as necessary)


-It saves training time

-It's easily accessible (anywhere and anytime)

-Training costs are reduced

-It’s effective

-It will be easily accessible

-It could be updated as necessary

-It’s cost effective

-it’s flexible

-It adds value to the organisation, staff and volunteers

-It adds value to the society
