Thank You

November 09, 2019

Seriously, we can not say thank you enough. I wasn't sure what I expected when we launched this but the number of contributions we've had and the level of all the contributions has completely blown me away. This will likely be the last post we make on here until the trip. For all those who have donated, you will get updates on this platform when spring break rolls around.

I would like to share with you some photos of our members as a way to say thanks and to show how the culture that you've built and continue to help us build is inspiring and connecting students at OSU.


15 days left!

Hi everyone,


Thank you all again so much for your contributions! Your generosity is felt by each and every one of our members who wish to go to San Francisco this spring and helps them get closer to achieving their dreams of being successful entrepreneurs. We only have fifteen more days to reach our goal of $10,000 so if you could share this page with others who might be interested in contributing we would greatly appreciate it. Today's update is a video from leadership team members Kristen Cerne and Kristiana Gresham with some more info on the trip.

Thank you for Contributing to the Trip of a Lifetime!

October 13, 2019

Thank you to everyone who has already donated! Your donations mean a lot. Check out the donation page and see all the awesome people who have already donated. It's incredible to see just within the first week how excited everyone is about it. Your donations will allow our most involved members to go to San Francisco and not have to worry about the cost of their flight or how they're going to get around once they're there. This also exists as an incentive for members to get as involved with the community as possible because those who volunteer and participate the most will get the first spots on the trip.

If you have any questions, please contact Christian Barrett.

2001: Our inception

This was the year that started it all. Thousands have been through the organization since and we owe it to our founders and past leaders.



If everyone in the #BBCMafia donates at this level, the trip will be fully funded. Spread the word!


A Gateway to the Valley

One round trip ticket for a current Business Builder. Connect midwest builders with west coast alumni. We're flying Southwest: a startup founded in 1967 and an iconic airline today.


Fully Funded

At this level you will have paid for the entire trip of a very lucky member! This includes airfare, transportation, and connections of a lifetime.
