Entrepreneurs saw a window of opportunity in the production of Soldier Fly Black protein as a sustainable source of protein for animals. They had an established business plan, with the production of NüContainers for lower-middle-income communities and a production plant to serve companies, but this was questioned when they got allies from different industries who believed that their market niche should be different from the previously established one.
