Echo Effect is a company within the Integrative Business Experience (IBE) at the University of Central Missouri. Students in IBE are part of a Marketing, Computer Information Systems, and Management class. In IBE, students decide upon a product, market that product, select a charity, acquire a loan, and sell the product. All profits made off of the product are then donated to that charity.

Lasting Impact on ECHO

Echo Effect requested that ECHO be rent-free from the their use of the Startup Center. Rent is $100 a month for ECHO. Through the elimination of rent, ECHO can save $1,200.00/year and put that money towards helping more children with the problem of food insecurity. That $1,200.00 equates to 1,800 pounds of food that ECHO can give to children in need. Rent-free status was secured April 2017 and to begin May 2017.
