The “17” challenge membership is not free. Starting or Entry fee has to be paid and its size is dependent on the size or type of participant. Some people consider this payment as funding similar to the payment to charity or non-profits or NGO´s but in fact, it is far from being the same.

Companies and individuals, so as governments that pay to charities, non-profits, NGOs, and other organizations follow frequently one principle


Some of the owners of the strongly funded activities took it even further. Just look at the CARBON EMISSION TRADING that fits in the same category.


It may sound hard if you consider that it was the UNITED NATIONS who introduced in KYOTO the “SOLUTION promoted as the end of environmental damage and carbon emissions in the air. The result

The “17” project so as the entire INDUSTRY 5.0 is not based on the same strategy. It is in fact far from it, because instead of asking others, it asks for responsibility and helps to change the initial players, payers, and members.

The “17” project represents the personal transformation that came first on the level of individual first delivering impact on the entities that more individuals do represent.

In fact, the “17” is the global couching and transformation project that turns the “SHAREHOLDERS” to “ACTORS” and “DOERS” instead of letting them be satisfied in the tole of OBSERVERS.

The amounts paid for this personal transformation are peanuts compared to the amounts various couches and dedicated organizations and agencies ask for the transformation of management board members or employees.

Participation in the “17” project is an investment in own future with ROI no longer than 17 months but frequently is shorter than 6 months.

This fact is the answer to why there was no NON-PROFIT established, but (same as in the case of INDUSTRY 5.0) all the activity is realized by the FOR-PROFIT company IBCSD LAB, which was established with the aim to lead activities directed to the construction of WASTELESS WORLD FOR ALL, on October 22, 2014, in Prague, Czechia, Europe, Earth, company in which I am the founder and since 2015 the only owner.

“17” is the business possibility for all who would like to be on the steering wheel of their own business and do not want to depend on someone else to decide how their own business, life, and future would look like.

It represents the INDUSTRY 5.0 principles and implements them on a global scale after 8 years of testing and brushing it up to the global ecosystem with full adaptability and agility needed for application on all levels and in all regions

One-time payment for 17 months challenge for life long change and true market LEADERSHIP is not a bad deal, is it?
