For Intro to Entrepreneurship (BUS 130) class students, the semester was focused on actively going through the entrepreneurial process, from idea generation and opportunity evaluation to planning and launch of a business. After launch, students took part in a 2-week competition to sell, sell, sell! During that competition, students voted on a non-profit organization to donate all their net profit. This semester’s non-profit donation is going to the Boys and Girls Club of Lowell.
Student businesses included t-shirts, face scrub, food, wallets, audio files, shoe cleaning, decorative pillows, and a painting service. Find out more specifics below.
Congratulations to all the students who worked hard during this competition!
