SNEEF: Entrepreneur Launches “Think-Board” from dorm room, selling worldwide

February 11, 2016 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Hanson-Grant-showing-Think-BoardHanson Grant, 21, will talk about his startup, Think Board, at the Southern New England Entrepreneurs Forum (SNEEF), on Thursday, Feb. 11, 5:30-8:00 p.m., Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship, 151 Martine Street, Fall River. 

Grant launched Think Board in his Babson College dorm room after finding paper too small, white boards too expensive, and dry erase boards too bulky.  

Think-Board is a clear, reusable, removable vinyl adhesive film that parents, kids, college students, or office workers can use on a desk, wall, table, refrigerator, or any other smooth surface. No nails or drilling. It enables anyone to brainstorm, solve math problems, write poetry, develop ideas for stories, make a list, or draw on your desk, wall or refrigerator.  For kids, it’s not vandalism – it’s creative learning! 

Grant has sold 10,000+ units in 29 countries worldwide and was a Mass. Challenge finalist. Think Board was featured last August on the Today Show. 

A panel of experts will probe Grant on his business model and offer advice. 

The SNEEF event is open to public.  Admission $20 in advance, $25 at the door, SNEEF Affiliate member $15, SNEEF Members free.  Pizza and salad dinner.  Join SNEEF for $75 and attend free.  Register at www.SNEEF.org.
