Business Management
Concentration: Entrepreneurship

 "Schooled is an ed-tech startup that seeks to solve the problem of “I wish this was taught differently” by creating a content/ social media platform where teachers from across the nation can post short, topic-specific videos pertaining to the subject they teach for students to use for studying and homework to give them a better chance at success in the classroom. I hope that this tool can be used by schools across the world to help students enjoy school and become more successful in the classroom. I hope that by the end of my experience here at the Sherman Center my company will be prepared for seed funding and a small-scale launch in the coming fall."

Extra Credit with Professor Mark Sivak! 📝

"Here I share something design or tech related from the week for those looking for just a little extra credit."

"This week I want to share an episode of one of my favorite design podcasts, 99% Invisible. If you have taken a class with me you have probably had to listen to at least one episode, but I recommend it for everyone. The host Roman Mars and his crew have built a library of awesome design content.

The episode this week is called Call of Duty: Free. How did famine, air travel, and Irish coffees lead to the industrialization of China? The history of the duty free store!
While you can now find duty frees in nearly any international airport, the original in a town called Shannon in Ireland pioneered by Brian O’ Regan was a true innovation. Offering his customers deals they could not refuse is arguably a huge factor in Ireland’s recovery from colonization and poverty. Applying duty free ideas and the model of free ports in Panama allowed for the proliferation of free zones. The podcast does an excellent job explaining the pros and cons of what this meant to the world"
