Davinci Virtual Office Solutions $1000 Scholarship

 

Since our company’s inception in 2006, Davinci Virtual has supported over 40,000 entrepreneurs with our virtual office, virtual receptionist and hourly conference room rental solutions. Just as we have grown our business and helped many startup customers, we look to provide support for future business leaders across America. We are proud to offer this scholarship opportunity to driven business minded college students who will become the leaders of tomorrow.

 

Entrepreneurship helped build this great country, and there are always new opportunities for bright young minds to play a role in the global marketplace with their own ideas. We are looking for students that plan to use their degree to start a business. Entrepreneurs come from all walks of life and have all kinds of degrees, so the main requirement for entry is that you plan to use your degree to realize a business idea you have.

 


Entry Requirements

Tell us in a 500-1000 word essay what you plan to do with your degree in terms of starting a business (any degree is acceptable as long as you plan to use it to start a business that matches your degree). What kind of business would it be, who would it serve and why you think it is a viable venture for you to pursue?

You also need to explain how you could benefit using our virtual office locations, our live virtual receptionists for call answering or the on-demand rental of our conference & meeting rooms to help you grow your business (include 2 of the 3).

 


Judging Criteria

All scholarship applications will be reviewed by the Davinci management team. We are looking for entries that demonstrate thoughtfulness in the selection of business they plan to start, as well as how to use core Davinci Virtual services (virtual receptionist, virtual office & meeting room rental).
