Two Abilenians won $15,000 to start up a business!

Abilene Christian University’s “Springboard Ideas Challenge” was held on Tuesday.

Members of the community were asked to put together a business plan and pitch concepts to investors.

The winning team, Brittany and William Suell, got to take home a $15,000 check.

This year’s winner plans to market “just add water” cookie dough. They say the competition is great for all who participate.

“It also allows you to connect with people. Like, even here, I’m sure people that didn’t win or got second or something, they’ve connected with people that liked their brand, liked what they stand for and want to help them grow.”

The pair says they will manufacture their product here in Abilene.
