LEAPing into 2018

It’s 2018 and we’re LEAPing with joy for the opportunities that have already opened up to us this year! Specifically, we’re thrilled to share that we’ve been selected as one of the first companies to partner with the LEAP program in the McCombs School of Business at The University of Texas at Austin.

The Longhorn Entrepreneurship Accelerator Program (LEAP) is an experiential leadership program that provides a hands-on experience to BBA and MBA students in accelerating a new venture through advice and assistance on the entrepreneurial process. In this semester-long program, students work in volunteer teams with startups in underrepresented groups or minorities in their local area to accelerate the startup’s development.

We have partnered with a team of three UT MBA students who are spending 10 weeks dedicating themselves to a few of our business challenges. They are bringing their bright minds and attention to the table to conduct research, problem solve, and prepare actionable solutions that will impact our plans for growth in the future.

We’ll keep you posted on their progress and the solutions they present by semester’s end, and we can’t wait to share their work! Hook ‘em!
