A team of Integrated Business Core (IBC) students has created Boardless, a student-run business offering flexible, stick-on whiteboards for any surface! The IBC allows students to practice what they are learning in class by running a real business, including creating, marketing, and selling a product. As a nonprofit, for-charity business, Boardless is providing a quality product while also raising money for Back2Back Ministries.

Boardless' flexible, stick-on whiteboard is very low-profile and sticks to nearly any smooth surface, allowing you to make notes on your wall, desk, or other surface without taking up virtually any work space!  Save space and save paper ‒ just Stick, Scribble, and Repeat.
