University of Central Missouri Intigrative Business Experience
We are a non-profit organization started through the UCM IBE program which gives students the opportunity to produce and sell a product then donate profits to charity. Our charity is The Survival House which provides shelter for abused women/children.
Our company is comprised of 29 capable individuals spanning over five disciplines of the business hall. In our limited timeframe we decided to produce and sell Shaker Cups. We found through market research that there was an untapped market for these drinking instruments in our community. By securing over $3000 in preorders we were quickly financed and went full steam into distribution.
iBEAST hopes through the sales of these cups we can contribute to our knowledge of how the world operates from a small business perspective. The process of researching, securing suppliers, pricing, and distribution in a tight timeframe has been tedious but we are confident in our abilities. Thank you for choosing iBEAST, and don’t forget to be a BEAST today!
