New student-operated enterprises require an excited, passionate student team and a staff/faculty co-manager willing to work closely with the group. Keeping the Berry mission, potential funding, potential for success, and amount of work involved in mind, the student team contacts the student Director for the Berry Enterprises Student Team (B.E.S.T.) to submit the enterprise idea and to schedule a meeting time to discuss the proposal, which begins the ‘Gating Process’.
