In June 2020, BUILD DC created our first-ever week-long online voting experience, Fund a Future! Participants were able to browse student teams, watch video pitches, review financial projections and marketing plans, hear from mentors and teachers, and cast votes for the winning team.
Even when we moved to online learning, our students were still at work. We are proud of all that our students accomplished at home with limited internet, limited technology and little adult guidance. COVID19 has tested out BUILDers, and the challenges it has presented have only proven that our students are innovative, resilient, and full of grit.
DC Student Team Candle Essentials sold multi-tiered, scented candles, saving you the money, waste, and clutter of needing to buy multiple scented candles!
Check out their video above to meet their team, see how they came up with the idea and learn how you can get your own Candle Essential.
We are excited to officially welcome BUILD Boston's new Regional Executive Director, Betsy Neptune! Betsy comes to us with many years of experience as an executive leader and brings to BUILD wisdom and experience in entrepreneurship, economic development, coaching, team development, and nonprofit management.
