CPES utilizes an innovative, and successful business model to engage "the fortune at the bottom of the pyramid (BOP)," as C. K. Prahalad, the father of the concepts of core competency and BOP says.
The CPES bottom-up solution maximizes local population enterprise, home ownership, job-creation, and new income opportunities. Simply put, the local population has an ownership stake in the project.
CPES has a top-down solution as well. Led by its CEO Richard N. Swett, a former U.S. Representative and Ambassador, CPES has direct access to top political and corporate leaders anywhere on the planet.
The combination of trusted relationships at the top and engagement at the bottom of the political and economic pyramid dramatically diminishes risk and increases profitability of the win-win solution:
An Enterprise Solution that has attracted global interest in the CPES projects.
CPES's 3P methodology is based on the successful model that co-founder Michael Rowan helped create in the 1970s.
Alaska Natives were capitalized to form 200 Native owned and operated enterprises, which have produced over $50 billion in corporate earnings.
The 3P development model of CPES follows a sequential process:
Building a profitable enterprise (primarily in agriculture but there are industrial applications);
Generating renewable power to provide electricity for the community, as well as selling any surplus back to the grid;
Developing the community infrastructure for the people, which includes solar housing, health & education facilities, and transportation services. Community Enterprises by which the local population universally has ownership shares in P1, P1, and P3 enterprises, will also be established.
The P1 enterprise drives P2 and P3 supply and demand, guaranteeing sustainability and profitability down the line.
CPES is creating software that integrates two relevant databases:
One, the construction and operations database of buildings or communities (as in VIMtrek), and
Two, the relevant databases measuring the human use of those buildings or communities (as in a Customer Relationship Management database).
The result is what we call the ultimate Enterprise Solution: the built environment, energy and human uses visualized in the computer prior to any construction.
CPES is working with local partners and an international hedge fund to develop up to 2.34 million acres of fertile agricultural land that will grow a variety of crops.
The local partners have existing agricultural operations that will provide extensive experience to the new joint venture.
Once the P1 project is underway, CPES will develop power (P2) from solar housing and other renewable sources, which will supply electricity to approximately 150,000 farmers, workers, and their families.
This sustainable project will be profitable for P1 investors while it transforms the standard of living and social mobility of a million Sudanese people.
The project can also be replicated all over the world since the project finance model is driven by private financing for P1 and a Public-Private-Partnership for P2 and P3.
With the improved political environment in Sudan as well as the natural advantages it holds in growing agriculture, Sudan has the potential to become the "bread basket" of Africa.
