BRYAN, Texas - Dec. 15, 2022 - PRLog -- The Giving Tee was the most profitable company in this year's Texas A&M Mays Business School Integrated Business Experience (IBE) program, earning nearly $8,000 in profits, which is being donated to Voices for Children of Brazos Valley. The Giving Tee was one of 10 companies launched by master level students participating in the class.

Students formed real businesses and carried out all the duties required to bring a product or service to market, including securing seed funding, which was provided by Aggieland Credit Union.

Together the 10 companies earned more than $21,000 operating their businesses during the fall semester. Each company donated their profits to a charity of their choice.

The class ended with each company closing operations and making final business presentations to the Aggieland Credit Union judges and funding team.

The Giving Tee produced custom designed screen-printed t-shirts for individuals, businesses, and groups. They advertised their t-shirt business using Instagram and Tik-Tok and sold at various venues throughout Bryan-College Station. The company also received media coverage on the local ABC TV affiliate, KRHD25, which helped boost its awareness, generating more sales.

"The culmination of the program is the final presentations in which the students/business owners report on how their organizations performed, "said Jason Goodman, COO of Aggieland Credit Union and a Texas A&M Class of 2000 graduate. "It is always interesting to hear what they learned and about the pivot points when they discovered the challenges of running a business."
