CSF One

Great ideas that yield practical solutions.

What Is CSF One?

Hello there, my name is Chris Fornesa, and I thank you for taking the time to visit CSF One.  CSF One is a brand, under my "Fornesus" persona, that I have dedicated towards product and project ideation, entrepreneurship, and design thinking.

What does it take to make a good idea?

Good ideas require a solid foundation and, as such, require the necessary nutrients and room to grow.  However, not all good ideas can be harvested and most, unfortunately, are unusable or impractical in the modern era.  Therefore, a good idea is not enough without the presence of practicality and follow-through.

What's the deal with
Entrepreneurship?

Entrepreneurship is an often-used, but misused, term that refers to an act of commerce rather than a type of business.  Contrary to popular belief, anyone can be an entrepreneur and, most likely, entrepreneurship principles have been utilized in your life at one point or another.  Entrepreneurship is, simply, coming up with an idea, acting on said idea, and implementation with the intent of changing a market landscape.  Entrepreneurship can be performed within a company or externally as its own startup.


However, entrepreneurship has often been used as an excuse for exploitation, which is wholly unacceptable.  Without employees to implement an idea, your idea would not be doable or realistic.  Without partnerships with external individuals or companies, the basic needs of your idea cannot even be met.  Thus, treating employees and other parties that provide the resources necessary for implementing your idea with respect and, more importantly, with openness and transparency, is a necessity.  Employees should not be paid below their market value and, absolutely, should not be exploited for the sake of the market itself.  In the same light, swindling small business owners, sole proprietors, etc. is highly unethical.  Entrepreneurship should uplift everyone involved, and not simply act as a participant in a perceived "zero-sum" game.

about me

I envision a better world where we expect greater humanity and more respect for each other.  I see ideas as the vehicle that can get us to a world with egalitarianism without the limits imposed on us by the powers that be.

Welcome to CSF One.

Welcome to CSF One, a brand/persona that I created to share information, distribute my knowledge, and open up opportunities for myself as a budding thought leader.  I believe that thoughts and ideas are the greatest vehicles that we have in moving towards progress that is truly equitable for all humans.  However, ideas differ and opinions on their feasibility, sustainability, and outright thought clash.

In such a polarized world, we need ideas and solutions that unite humans and also embrace the diversity in traits, thought, and ideas endemic in the human collective.  While force may instill ideas, it is only voluntary, consensual action that can bring forth these ideas into fruition, and this cannot occur in authoritarian and suppressive environments.

To truly achieve the shared goal of improving our communities and, in turn, our world, we must engage in a united effort to use and share our collective knowledge and expertise with our fellow humans and implement these ideas humanely.
