Be Free Village

In September of 2012, ten strangers met for the first time, unsure of where the journey would lead. All ten team members were full-time employees in other professions working to build their careers. The spark of creative thinking and entrepreneurship empowered them to create an idea that may not change the world for everyone, but will take strides to change it for many.

The platform that started the adventure was called B|Launched: a competition designed to bring big ideas to life by taking members of the Boise Young Professionals, a program of the Boise Metro Chamber of Commerce, and pairing them with two seasoned entrepreneurs as mentors to create new businesses in the Boise Valley. After three months of generating ideas, four teams presented their plans to a panel of business leaders.
