Bath Sponge Project - Jack’s Curated Business Idea

 



Bath Sponge Project 


Jack’s Curated Business Idea


A. PREAMBLE



As a trained Engineer, I learnt to find solutions to problems.


This idea was born out of challenges faced as a senior citizen in having a decent and convenient bath experience, without the need for swopping bath sponges or spending money unnecessarily.


This content is an attempt at finding a cost effective solution to a problem that affect some of us in our adult life; and which could affect  others in the later years.


I’ve married Engineering, Content Creation and Entrepreneurial skills with the hope of being part of the value chain in solving this problem.

1. Introduction


Hello!

This is Jack Lookman welcoming you to our series on Jack’s Curated Business Ideas. Today’s topic is The Bath Sponge Project. 

I’ve used quite a few Bath Sponges to date, and my experiences have varied over time. In order to save time, I shall concentrate my content on three selected Bath Sponges. 

The aim of this content is: 

  • to stimulate your thought process by encouraging you to think outside the box
  • to share a business idea
  • to explore opportunities
  • to add value to the entrepreneurial space
  • to explore your creativity

The content is more of an outline, and therefore not exhaustive. 

I implore you to make notes as you journey through the content. If you are unable to apply the content directly, it may be a stimulant for other ideas.

I’ve intentionally avoided pictures to avoid any intellectual infringement complications; as well as to optimise the textual content over any imagery.

2. Bath Sponges Under Consideration


  1. Bath Sponge A is a round sponge. The user experience is great but doesn’t quite wash the back effectively especially for older citizens. 
  2. Bath Sponge B is one with a handle.  It was designed to wash the back
  3. Bath Sponge C is a long sponge for washing the back. But the use is limited to the back. 


3. The Idea


The idea is to have a sponge with a good user experience like sponge A, and the same one that could effectively wash the back, especially for older citizens, like sponges B and C.  Also,  the proposed Bath Sponge is a hybrid of all 3 Bath Sponges.





4. Research and Development
