Comfy Things from Olin
At Olin College, one of the foundation courses that all students have to take is Foundation of Business Entrepenuership. For the second half of the semester, the class forms into groups, and each group create a business with its own unique product in order to better learn the process of entrepenurship.
A group of us created this company called Comfy Things from Olin, or CTFO. Our objective is to provide custom made beanbags for Olin students and local residents. There are three sizes of beanbag available: small, large, and couch size. The fabric and color choice is up to the customers, and amount of fillings can be adjusted upon request at no extra charge. When we receive the order form and the first half othe payment, we will buy the fabric, make the beanbag, and receive the second half of the payment after delivery.
All profit made from this company will go to charity. At end of the semester, the class will vote for what organization do we want to donate to. The company is active and functional until December 1th, after which we will no longer accept orders, although we will continue to make and deliver the beanbag already ordered until no orders are left.
