We are happy to announce that Life Out of the Box was recently chosen as the 2015 USA Creative Business Cup runner-up! LOOTB will be one of two companies to represent the United States in Copenhagen, Denmark during Global Entrepreneurship Week in November.
While we were in Guatemala, we were notified by several supporters that there was a business competition in Oklahoma for creative new startups called the Creativity Business Cup. We didn’t want to miss an opportunity back in the states, even amongst the chaos of working in Guatemala. So that evening we sat down and filled out the thorough application until 3am and then headed off to Nicaragua the next morning.
A few weeks later, we were notified that we had been chosen to represent Oklahoma in the next round of competition on the national level. Shortly after that round, we received the wonderful news that we were selected as runner-up in the U.S.! Now we are planning on representing our great country at The Creative Business Cup and Entrepreneurship Week in Copenhagen, Denmark.
This is a HUGE opportunity for not only us and Life Out of the Box, but also for our artisans and non-profit partners around the world. To read more about this event and the opportunities that it will bring, check out this press release the Spears School of Business at Oklahoma State University just dropped: Life Out of the Box Co-Founders Earn Trip to Entrepreneurship Week in Denmark.
We’ll be bringing you along with us over there, so stay tuned for what’s next!
