Happy 1st Birthday ReBuildUp!

YEAR1-70-485Today, March 1st, is ReBuildUp’s 1 Year Anniversary.  In a year we’ve developed four great games played in over 37 events for over 500 participants.  Thanks to all our sponsors and volunteers who’ve helped get us this far.

Our goal for the coming year is to use our Startup Program to help launch first time entrepreneurs in a way that allows them to test drive the small business experience while minimizing their risks in the process.

Help us celebrate our Year 1 Birthday by telling an aspiring entrepreneur about our site!
