Another 'Social Business' Idea - Mosquito Killing Contest

Yet another crazy idea which is hardly a business - a slight tech modification on the ubiquitous 'kosu-bats' of Chennai.

This product can be called KillVeri, a spoof on my real company name, SkillVeri. Some electronics added to ensure that each real mosquito killed is counted (and some other means to ensure that wires being shorted don't count) and a mechanism to send each bat's kill number to a central server: I'm sure a business can be built around a game which rewards the person who kills max mosquitoes in a locality, region and so on.
This business also directly encourages eliminating mosquito menace, thus indirectly help eradicate malaria, thus helping improve health of people, and such blah blah to call it a 'social business' and hence call myself a 'social entrepreneur'. Yes, I know this is stretching things too far, but then what else are MBAs meant for?

  1. and as a pseudo mba, i suggest that the game also comes with an option to post scores on the gamecenter app :) (and similar options for android and pc users ofcourse)

    but of all anti mosquito options, i have found odomos the most effective solution for chennai's super king size mozzies :)
