Help with college project: Need ideas!

So I have this innovation project that started yesterday. I have 3 other teammates, and the project is due in 2 weeks.

Basically, this project is for an entrepreneurship class. We have to make as much money as possible in the 2 weeks.

Here is the criteria:

We can only use $5 in cash.
It can't involve alcohol, tobacco, firearms, or anything illegal.


We live in a college town, so a few ideas popped up.
1. Drunk pick up service (from parties). $20 a person
2. Car wash
3. Xbox repair service


I would really appreciate any other ideas you guys may come up with. I know y'all are all pretty smart when it comes to creativity.



Thanks and Godspeed,

Silver60th

how about a delivery service that picks up your food, runs to the quiki mart for sodas , and then delivers it to the residence halls?

you could offer "delivery" for every restaurant in the area, not just the ones that already have drivers

Beer runs.

Too much to drink to drive?
Need more beer/booze at the party?

Call the Beer Bus...we'll deliver for you!

Sell blood and semen?

We thought about the beer run type operation, but there are just too many laws associated with it.
Also, not all of the group is over 21.

The delivery service is a great idea though...

Can't sell blood or semen in my city, only plasma, and that won't net the kind of profits we are looking for.

you could make cool campus/bar/party/frat/* shirts, clothes, etc silk screening is a pretty easy DIY endeavor

how about a wake up service? either via phone/email/txt or for us troublesome oversleeping underachieving types you could go pound on their doors - if you became friendly enough with the Floors RA's you could even get master keys and get access to the sleeping beauties. not sure if you have co-ed floors or whatever so you may have to keep it male/male female/female to actually get to the rooms

note taking for classes, especially the big auditorium intro classes where you could take notes for someone when they get hangovers...

More great ideas. Thanks jb4.

The shirts would be doable.
Wake up service...not so much. All of our buildings on campus are key-card locked.
Note taking is already being done by someone on campus. Lucky bastard.

Sorry if I am shooting ideas down! I know I am asking for help...not trying to be picky.
I just have to figure out what is doable or not.

no worries, I'm just throwing stuff out there - you could still do an email/phone/txt wake up service though

or a breakup service

or how many people have cars on campus? how many parking spots are hourly/timed? you could pull a george costanza and move cars for people so they dont get ticketed/towed (liability would probably be a ***** though)
