Aggies Helping Your Business Thrive!

by | Nov 20, 2008 | Community Circle

As you are aware, I am very connected to Texas A&M’s Center for New Ventures and Entrepreneurship. They have a great program called Aggies in Business (AiB) and I asked Jessica Pullen, member of AiB Consulting to provide a guest blog describing what they do. Below is a little bit more about AiB.

One hallmark of an Aggie education has always been the practical application of academic lessons. In the fall of 2006, the Center for New Ventures & Entrepreneurship launched a dynamic new program to further complement the lessons taught everyday in the classroom. Two years later, AiB Consulting is a thriving business seeking to add value to the education received at Texas A&M by providing students with the chance to manage and operate a real-world business.

Students involved with AiB Consulting manage and perform consulting projects for businesses seeking assistance. Currently, the students are primarily MBA students but also include other graduate students, as well as outstanding undergraduate students.

Throughout the fall semester, consultants have had the opportunity to work on a total of 11 projects including a business plan for a Guatemala-based clothing company seeking U.S. investors, a workforce evaluation survey and analysis for an economic development corporation located in Texas, and market research and analysis for a local home insurance agency interested in expanding operations. AiB Consulting is always open to new ideas and can help you accomplish that project you may not have time to complete.

AiB Consulting is currently lining up projects to begin work in the spring. Projects are billed at $50/hour and typically range from 100-300 hours. Whether you are looking for cost savings in your organization, looking to increase market share, or pursuing new business opportunities, a project with AiB Consulting can help you reach your goal. To talk to someone about your needs, or to get more information about AiB Consulting you can send an email to Jessica Pullen at, or Ryan Urban at
