Custom Rain Barrel Business Project 4/13/2011

College Mentors lead a team of high school students in developing a custom design rain barrel business in which residents, businesses and community organizations can order their own attractively decorated rain barrel(s).

As the lead to succeed student continue to work on their projects, I would like to make sure that you are well informed of what they are accomplishing. This week we worked on finalizing designs and created some captions for the drawings. So far, the students have come up with the following:

Three of four designs will be finalized so at the next meeting we can actually start putting them on card stock so they will be ready to help with our other team’s business pitch to acquire some rain barrels to paint and start selling. We are getting down to crunch time and I can’t wait to see how everything comes together.

Big news! The end is in sight! We are making the final push before we can start sell rain barrels! The past couple of weeks have been very exciting and very busy. The business team has been working on the outline and power point slides that will be used for the sales proposal meeting with MMSD. From this meeting, we are hoping that MMSD will be willing to donate a generous number of rain barrels for us to sell as a source of “seed money” (upstart capital). When this happens, we will be looking for more interested buyers, and the real fun will begin! I cannot wait to see what the next few weeks have in store for us!
