    If I had the investment I require & the right mentor, I would firstly fast track my existing business of providing Floating Homes in UK . Providing affordable homes on water for aspiring young people & others who might not otherwise be able to afford a home. I would approach govt to make available flood plains which are otherwise useless & create artificial lakes on them & have entire floating villages. With more & more cities in the UK getting flooded, this is the right time to further develop my business & try to change/influence policies of the govt & environment agency to be more receptive to houses on water.

    The second stage of my business plan is that once I have been successful in UK, I would then like to reach out to other poorer countries like Bangladesh & try to create Floating Villages or cities that can withstand floods & not devastate communities year after year.

    Climate change is affecting the world & even in India due to bad planning mangroves are being built on thereby creating devastating floods like the one in Chennai recently. I would like to educate Real Estate companies & govt in India to have these sustainable floating villages which would not cause flooding problems. A major part of the world is underwater & why not utilize this creatively. Yes, I would like to be an AQUA ENTREPRENEUR.
