That’s a Wrap! Spring 2024 Integrated Business Program closes on over $17,000 donated to charity 👏👏👏

Let’s recap 🧢 This semester, 6 teams jumped into the world of business, developing their ventures from the ground up. They crafted business plans, pitched for bank loans, bought inventory, and participated in selling events.

Key Takeaways 🔑 Business is tough, and overcoming challenges is even tougher! The teams learned essential startup steps, like planning selling events and balancing them with school, work, and other life demands.

Along the way, they faced harsh realities—rejection, disorganization, and communication issues. Just as burnout set in, they began to understand the true essence of teamwork and leadership. Despite doubts about their product, supply chain issues, or last minute cancellations their teamwork defied odds and exceeded company expectations. They supported each other with encouragement, working together for the greater good of their businesses.

Generating over $17,000 in profit, distributed to each team’s chosen charities:

Buckets of Love, $5,417.18 for the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles
Product - Reversible Bucket Hat

Lock In, $3,750.98 for Children of the Night
Product - Portable Door Lock

Memora Ball, $2,594.89 for Alzheimer’s Association
Product - Bag Cleaning Spheres

Safe Gap, $1,936.56 for S.A.F.E. - Streets Are For Everyone
Product - Guard between a car’s center console and seat

Saving Faces, $2,591.26 for MyFace
Product - Reversible Bucket Hats

Port-a-Pot, $945.67 for the University of La Verne’s Leo Food Pantry
Product - Portable cooking pot

Grand Total, $17,236.54
