Invigorate Strategy: business revenues to subsidize wheelchairs

75 million people do not have access to an appropriate wheelchair and there is an urgent need for supportive pediatric wheelchairs. The cost basis is approximately $20B, so Invigorate is implementing a diversified revenue strategy, to help solve this, be leveraging business, technology, and partnerships to transform lives for good.

Invigorate is recruiting business people to join Advisory Groups to mentor, advise, disciple, and lead young leaders to operate profitable businesses, and Invigorate business units, to subsidize wheelchairs. Churches are full of business professionals who desire to use their business acumen to be a part of something bigger and this creates the opportunity for meaningful long-term impact.

The goal is to lead a movement of Advisory Groups empowering an ecosystem of business initiatives that generate revenues for the purpose of subsidizing wheelchairs.

Invigorate will use technology to control policies, processes, procedures, and maintain oversight. All resources, training courses, processes, communications, finances, governance, reporting, inventory, and accountability measures will be on a secure online platform. The platform will also be marketed as a Software as a Service product, to subsidize wheelchairs and to equip organizations, like Mission Hospitals, to use the platform to generate their own revenues.

Invigorate will coordinate strategic partnerships to focus on revenues:

  • Leading Advisory Groups
    Invigorate is forming partnerships with other organizations, including sending agencies, business incubators, accelerators, and operators, that have the experience to stabilize and scale the subsidization of wheelchairs without re-inventing curriculum and programming.
  • Developing Sustainable Revenue Streams
    Invigorate will develop sustainable revenue streams from donors, product and commercial revenues, and product sales.
  • Operating Modern Manufacturing Facilities
    Invigorate will operate modern manufacturing facilities in strategic countries to make wheelchairs locally to reduce cost, establish consistent availability, simplify logistics, increase serviceability, and to meet local demand.
  • Corporate Social Responsibility Program
    Some businesses may prefer to join our CSR program by committing a percentage of their business revenues to help support new and ongoing projects and to help subsidize the cost of wheelchairs.

Everyone who is lifted off the ground and appropriately seated on a wheelchair experiences a better quality of life, improved earning potential, and better acceptance in their community. The goal is to deliver each wheelchair with a message of hope.

The exciting benefits and network effects of this strategy will allow Invigorate to be a factory of factories, so each effort increases the repeatability and scalability of additional iterations of the same. For example, Invigorate will recruit metal fabricators to advise early manufacturing operations, which will expedite manufacturing in other countries.  

This is compelling and necessary work, to transform lives for good, by helping millions of people to achieve a better quality of life by providing an appropriately provisioned wheelchair through Mission Hospitals.
