New Startup Business Organization Now Accepting Members

A new student organization dedicated to providing opportunities for students in starting and running a business is now accepting applications for new members.

The organization, currently known as the Student-Run Business Initiative, plans to sell pet-related gifts at a storefront in Kirksville and online. A portion of the proceeds will go to the local animal shelter and will also be used to raise awareness about adoption. The SRBI plans to have its products designed by the artistic community at Truman.

Members have the hands-on opportunity to create products and work on the SRBI team. They decide what products to carry, how the store is set up, design products and advertisements, and develop a logo and the visual look of the store and its products.

Katherine Jackson, associate professor of business administration, created the SRBI last semester in an effort to interest students in starting their own business and gain more hands-on experiences. About 25 members are involved in the organization.

The Student-Run Business Initiative is currently looking for new members of any major. For more information and to apply for the organization, contact Anh Bui.
