Spring Selling Season at BUILD

At BUILD, our students run real businesses (and earn real profits!)  They develop amazing products such as portable silverware, custom-blended organic fragrances, cookies with your photo on them, and more unique finds.  If you are interested in meeting our students and picking up some of their innovative creations, you can find them at the following selling events in March:

  • March 5, 2016: Minority Business Expo at Blue Hills Boys and Girls Club (register for the expo here)
  • March 10, 2016: the Haley House in Roxbury from 6:30-8:00 pm
  • March 22, 2016 – Roxbury Innovation Center (Venture Night) from 4:30-7:30 pm

If you head out to one of these events please let us know on twitter or facebook and share some pictures of your purchases! 

You can contact Richard Futrell if you have any questions about BUILD selling events and how to get your hands on all your favorite student products!
