Who we are

NBR is Northwestern's premier business-interest publication and one of the country's top and only undergraduate business journals. Through our work, we strive to make business news accessible to all. Visit https://northwesternbusinessreview.org to see some of our work!

What have we done

We recently profiled ThriveCash, a $10M startup founded by ex-Paypal product managers. Our goal was to create relevant and accessible content about a real-world business i.e. answer the question: "How can we make ThriveCash's story and mission as relevant and accessible as possible, especially for a Northwestern student audience?"

We interviewed the CEO of ThriveCash with a keen focus on the things that matter: ThriveCash's relevant business mission, ThriveCash's CEO's journey from college to founding a startup, etc. From that, we created a profile of the CEO of ThriveCash focusing on his journey as a founder and containing advice for student entrepreneurs, with ~1k views in just two months since the story's publication.
