“On the website, MBAs across America, website, there will eventually be case studies of the background of the entrepreneurs or small businesses we worked with , the challenges they faced and how our team helped make an impact , during the week that we were there.”
The team is part of a project called “MBAs Across America.” There are seven other teams from various Ivy League Schools taking part in the initiative to help small businesses nationwide.
