This past summer, Aileen and Lucas were a part of GreenHouse Innovators in Residence, a community for innovators who want to create social or environmental change. Aileen and Lucas pitched their startup ideas at the GreenHouse Social Impact Showcase in July and were awared funding from the Social Impact Fund. This experience helped prepare both Aileen and Lucas for their Enterprise Co-op terms in September.

Lucas went on to explain that

"GreenHouse played a key role in getting me to succeed with Enterprise Co-op. Without GreenHouse, it wouldn't have been possible."

Aileen also stated that the GreenHouse community "helped foster my passion for entrepreneurship while creating an encouraging environment to strengthen my pitching skills."

Going forward, Aileen and Lucas are both building their ventures as part of their Enterprise Co-op term this fall. During this time, Aileen is preparing to launch BeBlended's online platform and Lucas is getting ready to sell Tic Toc Go's book starting January 1st, 2020.
