Think Board History

Founded in New York, Think Board has made significant strides in the world of dry erase solutions.

It all started out of a dorm room at Babson College. Think Board was born from the need for a space to jot down business ideas and stay organized without the ability to drill holes or paint the walls. What resulted was a dry erase film that was easy to install, looked beautiful, and worked perfectly.

Our founder, Hanson, originally used the first version of Think Board to write down business ideas, but soon enough, friends recognized its potential. The journey began after hearing comments like, "Hanson, your ideas aren't that great... BUT this thing... this is cool. Where can I get one?" 

Today, Think Board spends much of its time speaking to schools and mentoring student entrepreneurs. Many students resonate with our team's own recent journey through education. We have all our products available online, many of which are designed with dorm rooms and home study spaces in mind. But their real impact lies in the value added to entire school districts and office/coworking spaces.
