GI Participates in Texas A&M MBA Venture Challenge

Gratitude Initiative was the first non-profit to participate in the annual MBA Venture Challenge (link to this story: http://maysbusiness.tamu.edu/index.php/mba-venture-challenge-brings-spotlight-on-new-businesses/) at Texas A&M University’s Mays Business School. In its 12th year, the MBA Venture Challenge teams MBA students with start-ups or early stage ventures to afford both students and businesses with a learning opportunity. Students gain real world experience researching market data and evaluating business plans while local start-ups benefit from the time and insights from the Texas A&M MBAs. Teams of students are assigned a company to research, evaluate, and pitch to judges from the business community.
