A Tech success story
During his education at Tech, Chad’s hands-on experience with small businesses, such as bsimplecreations, was very impactful. He helped bsimplecreations craft their venture, while learning about product development, conducting market research, identifying target markets and assessing risks. He credits his mentor, marketing professor Dr. Staci Lugar Brettin, for helping him connect the dots.
“She coached me through some major ups and downs and still continues to do just that, even though I have graduated and moved to a different state. Her energy and enthusiasm inspired me to always grind and smile,” Chad said.
Chad is working to grow his own business and continues to help small businesses in his region.
