Matias Myers, a junior finance major, was part of a group at Cedarville University (Ohio) that generated a flexible whiteboard product called Boardless, which eliminates the inordinate amount of sticky notes that help people stay organized. Through research, the group found a material that allows for a flexible, thin, portable whiteboard that will stick to most surfaces without using adhesive. The back of the flexible whiteboard can be rinsed and reused, and can stick to a desktop, refrigerator or even to the back of a laptop computer. Along with the whiteboard, the product includes a marker and storage tube. Boardless was marketed to hospitals and classrooms across the country – selling for just $12.99. During a six-week campaign, the students sold more than 400 boards, generating $4,869 and close to $1,000 profit. All their proceeds were given to Back2Back Ministries, an international Christian nonprofit organization dedicated to being a voice for orphans. ••
