Plan
 
Pending the receipt of necessary venture funds, the plan is to have the GUS website live and fully functional in 9-10 months at which time a multi state, multi market pilot initiatives would be launched with at least 1 program partner and numerous coupon sponsors.

After a 4 month test pilot and review period, the plan would be to then begin to expand GUS into other states and other markets.
 
Expansion
 
There are several GUS "secret sauces," one being in the overall delivery plan in bringing GUS to market and then sustaining the campaign over the long run. Also, GUS is not exclusively about soccer, but rather about the process of engaging children in wholesome activities on their terms.

The GUS prototype should be replicated for other sports, along with other diverse life endeavors to include vocal and instrumental music, creative writing and the visual arts. We chose to start with soccer because of its enormous global infrastructure and its simplicity; "all you really need is a ball!"
