Educaid Box a Non Profit Start-up to Raise Funding for School Supplies
The concept is a non-profit that sells educational supply boxes to help under privileged students K-12 by providing a way for people to purchase and donate much needed schools supplies.
Students are tasked with coming up with an idea for a product to manufacture, distribute and market online. This project requires design thinking skills, teamwork, and project management skills as well as the ability to write a business model that is viable in today’s marketplace.
“A non-profit organization made up of three creative thinkers trying to make a difference.”
