Education Matters


At Tenavox, we place a high value on education, and we recognize that a college degree can make a big difference in a student’s career trajectory. To help students and future entrepreneurs achieve their educational goals, we are proud to offer a $2,500 scholarship to students who are attending or plan to attend an accredited college or university in the United States.

By developing an essay on the critical roles commercial real estate plays in a business's founding, growth and life cycle we can help empower a new generation of leaders who are prepared to leverage real estate in their ventures or careers.

Topic: How should a business account for their real estate needs as they grow?


In order to support future business leaders, we are looking for students who demonstrate an interest in real estate and an awareness of the importance of commercial property to a business’s success and growth. Thus, we are asking applicants to write a 1,250 to 1,500-word essay discussing how a business has to account for their real estate needs as they grow.

To develop the essay, consider or develop your own real-life example of a small business that needed to move into a larger or different space as it grew. What were the needs the original space met? What were the challenges that required a change or growth? What were the significant features of the second property that supported the business’s success and growth? What a some general guidelines or principles for choosing commercial real estate?

Applicants are encouraged to do research to support their ideas. However, all secondary sources must be appropriately cited according to any major style guide (e.g., MLA, APA, or the Chicago Manual of Style). We are just looking for accurate citations and consistency in formatting.
