gy and (firstname.lastname@example.org) would welcome hearing from anyone with simpler vocabulary for the same constructs- however to be true to 42 years of work on Entrepreneurial Revolution that started in The Economist in 1972, it is necessary to have a language which is consistent -related microfranchise references: help map top 100
the construct of microfranchise emerged around 1982 after the first 10 years of debates with alumni of Entrepreneuruial Revolution - in norman macramé's 1984 book on what needed to happen if everything went optimally for youth of the h=net generation, maps demonstrated that an open clearing web of at least 30000 microfranchise solutions would be needed to sustain the net generation as worldwide youth's most productive and collaborative time
In the post-industrial revolution that service and open-knowledge networking economies can celebrate, Microfranchises are franchises that perform a vital community service but which are primarily open sourced from community to community so that
1) most of the productive value of the franchise systems is grounded in the community and
2) so that local people are empowered to increasingly serve themselves as mobile apps help distribute knowhow and the opportunity of one world citizenry all being linked in stimulates collaboration around millennium goals such as ensuring n the 21st c that every child wherever born has a fair chance at health, peace, environmental harmony and learning to be income generating
if microfranchises are to be mapped as the search for the world's most purposeful microeconomic solutions for sustainaing local access, affordabily then it is logical to want some organaitions to be gravities for tens or hundreds of microfrachises provided the practices concerned are compatible for such a meta-resource
In very different ways those who study Bangladesh's Grameen or BRAC by understanding how these organisation evolved step by step probably have the most exciting opportunity to benchmark meta-microfranchise. There may for example be some examples in countries like China but these have not been appraised in worldwide languages and studies. Of course we would love to hear from people who spot a possible meta-franchise. There's also an urgent question which may vary over the years. What open platform provides the best opportunity toreassemble a combination of microfranchises. Right now there is a segment of the open education and mooc movements who are re-assembling meta-microfanchsies. This is partly because most people who valued berners lee education vision of the web are behind the converegence around MOOC - there is wide agreement that 3 of the most valuable innovation opportunities youth can access involve
Mass for mass scaling of micro
O for open
O for online
there is some debate as to whether C stands for curriculum, course or collaboration although all three support each other
============================ old note
Microfranchsies and Meat-Microfranchises
First we are not wedded to the terminology of meta-microfranchise if someone has a better term.
What's important is the term would need to represent the following - what cases exist of most purposeful organsiations in the world that have emerged as a combination of dozens of microfranchises. In the case of the metafranchise the standard question - how do we replicate a microfranchsie isn't the only one as it is necessary to map which of the combination of microfranchises are absolutely essential to the whole ecosystem and which are experiments that may thrive or die or be spun off. It should not surprise us that the bottom-up organisational world needs examples to celebrate of organisations that become a gravity for multiple and evolving service lines not one trick ponies. Another question for the organisations with the most continuous social impact in the world is how should they be constituted. What we also know is the organisational networks that multiply the most goodwill through the hyperconnected age that our 21st century is irreversibly becoming need their own transparent metrics to be governable built around how the flows of the most vitally connected services interact their own business models…
I correspond out of the capital city that is normally hardest to search out microfranchises from - washington dc
so it is a great pleasure to complement usaid and monitor on one of the best ever presentations of microfranchises I have seen -scale presentation by MONITOR
the most valuable issue raised by seeing databanks of microfranchises seems to me to be:
-if place leaders' congresses cant be trusted to sustain clusters of microfranchises- what is main competence investors should want to attract microfranchises around? - lets unify microeducation, microcredit and microtechnology summits for youth to connect millennium goals bottom-up solutions with
monitor has searched africa and found over 500 microfranchises and has a similar hunt in India - its definition being a model that already demonstrates sustenance of positive cashflow, that uniquely serves the poorest, and which could be ready to scale (usually through communal replication- if the microfranchises is a community knowhow service empowering people in the community to produce it and retain most or all of the growth produced)
this presentation also talked about a couple of metafranchise catalysts - the relatively new mpesa- while this is famous in kenya- extending it to tanzania took a lot of work- first because the main first scaling app in kenya "remittances' dont work the same way in tanzania; second because vodaphone didnt have a dominant position in tanzana sio the idea of mobile (last mile cash systems) needed to be a collaboration effort of tall 4 main telecoms- additional the regulations that tanzania needed to introduce were different- the sorts of intervention needed to get mpesa growing involved several yeras of work by gates foundation -apparently it was made clear that gates didnt want any skin in the game of the cashless banking industry in tanzania; today mpesa has as big penetration as kenya and its transmission costs for typical sums are lower than Kenya
the other meta-case- turned out to be a traditional one- for nearly 50 yerar kenya has a nationally owned tea board which has maintained high quality export standards- but the modern twist is that the tea board is now owned by th 50000 smallest quality producers-please note these summary interpretations are my recollection - look at the full sources for details…
ly one of the world's most visible meta-microfranchises Grameen Bank has invested in interfacing at least 20 intercommunity solutions that are worth bencharking for practical outreach and many more in the extreme innovation labs that yunus links in around him
as far as we know (please tell us if we are wrong) no nation has scaled exactly the same progression through microfranchises that were most economic and sustainable for grameen's development pathway through Bangladesh but there are many outstanding examples inspired by yunus and grameen that have borrowed on components of what grameen franchises
note for example from the getgo, one of investment grameen members unanimously voted for was sending their children to primary schools- but this relied in part on the good fortune that brac existed to develop what many people believe to be the most miraculous schools to reach rural and poor communities- at least WISE awarded BRAC's founder Sit Fazle Abed its inaugural global education Oscar. For this reason alone a national scaling of grameen's total impact would not have been exactly replicable in any other nation than Bangladesh…
onomist spent a decade (1972-1982) hosting this inquiry. It concluded that the world (locally and globally) would need to celebrate competitions out of which 30000 microfranchises would need to be designed by the most collaborative and trusted entrepreneurial revolutionaries...
.What is Microfranchise? Microfranchises are interventions in (value chains of) collapsing market systems - ie they return communal freedoms to peoples (especially youth of net generation as beneficiaries of million times more collaboration technology than when man raced to the moon) to spend productive and happy lives by being focused on the most life critical services and knowledge flows that any sustainable community needs. Examples show that microfranchises are
led by the world's most valuable people in sense of doing the most human good
open source a solution so that most of the value being multiplied stays in the community which was otherwise at risk of losing its inter-generational capacity to sustain families
Where will the world's top 20 Youth IlabMicro blossom?
Dhaka? Yunus Centre creates a lab process capable of launching 100 youth concepts a year to stage 1
... Your region?
IlabMicro may be the best idea in the 30 years since the curriculum of Entrepreneurial Revolution started searching for microfranchises. The region's most trusted youth jobs creator hosts monthly parties where youth present design concepts
-stage 1 winners get a free stall in a busy market or youth space - for a week or two, at which they get a chance to prove the franchise or assemble service teams- those who survive to
stage 2 winners get the smallest amount of finance needed to prove the sustainability of the model ... the world's Ilabmicro share a blog on their progress
Even failed concepts may provide exciting peer to peer training modules in the khan academy type format ; IlabMicro also aim to be the most collaborative places on the planet- in most cases the student teams wants to generate jobs and offer life sustaining service in their community- if another youth network can largely open source the franchise they are happy- on that basis many of the world's best practice mentors lend their support; and the confederation of Ilabmicro either starts up its own youthworldbank (and potential e-currency) or seeks out the most patient and purposeful investors the planet can offer
Timeline: we trust world's top 20 IlabMicro will be ready for celebrating in Nov 2015- the date Atlantahas set for staging a youth jobs expo which connects more worldwide youth buzz than an Olympics. Its not that sportsman aren't invited to give back - join our university of starsfamily of models if you can bring a celebration to connect with net genration job creation
4 Examples -rsvp email@example.com with microfranchise solution you love celebrating most
1) In Bangladesh, the market for poultry was redesigned by BRAC around 5 microfranchise job descriptions so that the working lives of over 100000 poorest villagers could sustain a lead in the market. The invention that started this - a breed of chicken that lay more eggs than the scrawny chicken that villagers had access to. Being able to lay more eggs per bird made keeping chicken in the village a sustainable job. However these hard working chickens needed periodical innoculations (so thousands of jobs of :chicken-vet" were created). The 3 other job descriptions: breeding the super-chicken, marketing the surplus chickens beyond the village of production, developing chicken feed from land not fit for human crops
2) In India, a doctor wanted to use his life's knowhow to end unnecessary blindness. He designed a franchise aravind with the team efficiency of a mcdonalds but a cross-subsidisation model where wealthier people bought one cataract operation to give away two ops to those who couldn't afford it.
3) In Bangladesh, Muhammad Yunus designed a model where 10000 of the most financially competetent Bangladeshi's lived in the villages - each team served 60 groups of 60 poorest villagers a week building centres that connected 3 things in one- community market place owned by poorest, job training, financial service designed round freeing mothers to live a productive life.
4) In USA, tens of thousands of microfranchise jobs are being created each year around local food security and to bring back nutritional diets in the challenge to overcome the 2 extremes of adult obesity and child hunger
r synonyms welcome). This aims to identify a community solution which an entrepreneur aims to openly let parallel communities replicate where most or all of the value served is retained in the community. For example I know of many students in states around usa who are developing a pop up van to serve fresh food in a regional community without such distribution. They wish to serve the community they are in - and learn from others who are serving their communities in a similar way. firstname.lastname@example.org
.Why i am searching peer to peer networks of microfranchising
back in 1984 dad and I wrote first book on net generation- we believed many of the most urgent sustainability solutions and job creation of net generation would depend on open sourcing community-owned solutions through what schumacher had described as millions of global villages ..in 2008 dad was delighted to host his last public birthday party with muhammad yunus guest of honour- yunus probably inspires more microfranchising than anyone
Jan 28th 2013 6 weeks long
eir peer to peer learning and wonderful news that 2013 is the year of the mooc eg www.khanacademy.org and possible www.coursera.org - a collaboration platform that can viralise 10 minute training modules to millions of youth simultaneoulsy -current mf100 is here
good - open education such as www.khanacademy.org makes microfranchises massively easier for millions of youth to access - this is because how to map and value sustainability of a microfranchises is by definition specifiable in a transcript which takes less than 10 minute to video- this doesn't mean that you can be job ready to serve a microfranchise after 10 minutes of training but it does mean that a whole variety of stakeholders concerned with youth job creation can tell from the microfranchise specification when it is or isn't being openly replicated in communities near you (and clarify what training can be done locally eg through peer to peer modes and what needs access to the founder's brilliance something moocwho can do )
bad reasons include - our 1984 map of how the net generation could use million times more collaboration technology to be gainfully employed in sustaining every communities' vital services was conditional on public media scalling both broadcast and internet around this hunt - the bbc or india's dd as two largest braodcasyers owned by the peoples (not by politicians) could have celebrated massive reality tv programs idolizing those who open up technology to life saving service franchsies commuunities had never shared or grounded before; someone could have ponsored a largest virtual community designed around hunting out and testing microfranchises- we lost 2 years of our lifetime believing the euprope union knowledgeboard would be capable of doing this after 9/11 but while the technical caoability was there it turned out that eu bureaucrats didn't like the subject of knowledge creating jobs- they wre reprtin in to a section in Luxembourg that believed in selling information technology to replace jobs- such is the macroeconomic muddle of anti-youth economists
anuhow bear with us - there is much ore information in various desktops validating why the votes for the top 100 micfrofranchsies are the way they are- but equally this is a pure search exercise - we are most delighted of all if you will identify for us a top 10 microfranchsie we have previously mapped…
n times more collaboration tech than when 1960s generation raced to moon
Model around at least 51% around open sourcing of a franchise solution ; by 51+% ownership voice representing those most relevant to need or its service- the microfranchise can be the most purposeful basic service of its type. It values collaboration to ensure it remains best value at its quality level. Any organization that claims commons ownership (eg public broadcaster) or charitable reason d'etre ought to want their resources to fully connect with a microfranchise with highest social ownership. Conversely wizard technologists who want to design a most purposeful network are only giving away one doubling of equity

After 10 years of dialogues in The Economist from 1972 (first experiments of youth with digital networks experienced by The Economist's pro-youth economics editor Norman Macrae) recommendations were published as the 1984 book on why searching out 30000 microfranchises would be essential for net generation to be able to suatain every global village as well as for collaboration technology to empower the most productive time for worldwide youth
Microfranchise specification should be wholly clarifiable in a 10 minute training module. This does not mean that every skill needed to serve such a microfranchise can be learnt in 10 minutes! It does mean that all concerned and expert stakehodlers should be able to judge from this video when an open replication is actually sustaining the same systemic solution. Ten minute open educational platforms eg www.khanacademy.org can make world's number 1 clearing house for MF cataloguing.
Economics of media assumptions:
there will be a "war" over using net as smartest open education media humans have ever designed and as an appendage of tv advertising's command and control age. We should search out leaders www.wholeplanet.tv who wish to invest in 2010s being youths most productive times through internet transforming education; we should demand education open tech is central to post 2015 millennium goal summits www.microeducationsummit.com; we should demand the most diverse debates of future purposes of each trillion dollar market to understand which markets are free to sustain youth;s futures and which are chaining youth to unsustainable endgames
Unlike things that involve an economics of scarcity when consumed up, knowhow multiplies value in use. We need way above zero-sum models and complete transformation of zero-sum professions. Both Einstein and Von Neumann wrote extensively on these system challenges of ending externalization at boundaries and ultimately valuing how to mimic nature's bottom-up and open system designs if the human race is not to become the next dodo!…

e by my father in The Economist in the 1970s in a genre he called Entrepreneurial Revolution- his 1984 book mapped 3 billion new jobs of the net generation empowered by million times more collaboration technology. Banks could be investing in that social mediation. Dad had been mentored Keynes- people like Keynes, Von Hayek, Schumacher, Schumpeter had clarified conflicts that economists and banking needed to resolve from observing how the worst of fascism and communism were the same broken system ultimately run for less than 1% of the peoples. In 2018 The Economist' will be celebrating its 175th birthday of being founded to mediate bottom-up system designs integrating an end to hunger. Help research out which shareholders of The Economist want to lead that celebration
What we need now is a planet-wide uniting of peoples that goes way beyond national boundaries. There is no way to be polite about this: more and more nations will fail their youth unless job creating banks become mainstream. The good and the bad news is that collaboration in the greatest social goals humanity has ever imagined such as ending poverty are highly correlated with celebrating job creating bank systems. This is also why my father spent the last 5 years of his life encouraging 10000 young people to benchmark the original designs of Bangladesh 's poverty-slaying banks- ones that BIll Clinton once clarified had sustained a whole new economic paradigm. This is why dad's last article written in 2008 explained that the 2010s would go into serial slump unless the wall street (compound risk and externalisation) crisis spun through the sub-primes 2000s were branded as the peak of global corporate and public service irresponsibility
So the political problem is immense. In all other respects, the solutions remain remarkable simple and youthful!
1 Make financial literacy a primary skill school - the best work on this curriculum emerged from an Indian orphanage. uch training is now distributed in nearly 100 countries and that's before MOOCs were widely understood.
2 Search out 30000 microfranchises which open source solutions to most of society's most life critical service challenges. A microfranchise is a life-enhancing service solution iteratively rehearsed until it becomes sustainable in one community which is then openly replicated in other communities with analogous sustainability crises. Critically most or all of the value of the franchise remains in the community of production, and local people are increasing empowered to be the service providers (mobuliesed by best for the world advice -something a digitally networked world's greatest economic progress is defined by. So who will open source a life critical service franchise instead of patent a licence fee for every replication. Well that is the role of the job creating bank, politicians who wish to get back to the idea of public service that existed before the tv advertising age replaced hi-trust lives of service with PR. Consequently an integral player in job creating banks and celebrating microfranchises is needs to be reformed public media. See how father described this in his 1984 book mapping 3 billion net generation jobs through collaboration around way above zero-sum models.
The question hi-trust public media needs to have the courage to celebrate is what is the most sustainable purpose that each different global market sector needs to free locally so youth can co-network it. We are talking about inter-generational purposes. the big hairy audacious goals that regenerate, enlighten , restore. These need trillion dollar audits in exactly opposite ways to system designed around:
one most powerful side extracting from every other productive and demanding constituency in a value exchange
exactly opposite ways to externalising across borders
How else can sustainability of a borderless world and our human species expect to evolve given nature's designs which are local up and collaboratively open
Fortunately there are banking systems that have become meta-connectors of hundereds of microfranchises. The problem is there leaders are in their declining years. Its urgent we mooc the knowhow of these epicentres of hundres of microfranchises. Such MOOC capability needs to be pivotal of ll millennium goal summits from this day on. Yes today's youth - linked in by collaboration tcholgy- can co-produce the most human gaols ever dreamed of but only if economics designs capital to invest in such worldwide spirit…
Dad (Norman Macrae) created the genre Entrepreneurial Revolution to debate how to make the net generation the most productive and collaborative . We had first participated in computer assisted learning experiments in 1972.
