Nahla,

Thanks for the excellent and thoughtful feedback. I'd be interested to get some more thoughts from you during the next phase if we are shortlisted.

Thanks,

Andres,

Great idea. We are looking at expanding the model to include local Replication Centers which would help provide mentoring and localization support for the new entrepreneurs and could provide that in-person open community environment that you mention. Thanks!

Miller Center commented on Business Model Replication to Accelerate Clean Energy Access

Hi Kate, thanks for the comment. Since the objective is to create ventures and take them all the way to scale funding, this is likely a 2 year project. This would be fast by normal means, but our thesis is that by building on established models, the rate of scale can be much faster.

Some of the components are well established, but others are still being fleshed out and will likely be adapted based on the feedback we receive in the next round. As such, we have formalized a total budget yet. Do you know if this is something that is needed in the first stage of the proposal?

Thanks,
