About this idea
It's time for the rubber - and the paint - to hit the road! I won the 2023 Demo Day Youth Division with my Stripes Again. Now that the weather is breaking, I'm ready to train, buy equipment, market, and get to work. I suspect that I will be the first youth-owned paint striping business in West Michigan... maybe in all of Michigan!
Stripes Again will benefit the small businesses, churches, and nonprofit orgs that we plan to serve. We will refresh their faded parking stripes to give their property organized and professional curb appeal - not to mention increasing overall safety. We plan to serve 8 organizations and businesses per month each month May through September. That makes 40 organizations. This will not only benefit those customers but their neighborhoods and communities as well.
What I'll do with $5,000
Combining this $5,000 with our previous winnings, we will purchase equipment and supplies including a paint striping machine, paint, work clothes, and other accessories. We will also invest in coaching services with an international company that has been in business for 21 years. And, we will purchase a trailer and invest in a storage solution.
