Brad Koch (2011) and Jesse Vollmar (2011) weren’t typical college students. As incoming freshmen at SVSU, the two had already launched a successful IT consulting business. Brad and Jesse chose SVSU for a number of reasons, including the scholarships each received to fully cover their tuition for four years of school. At SVSU, Brad and Jesse further developed the skills they needed to develop a major IT company. They decided to fill a market gap by designing programming solutions for the agricultural industry. The choice paid off. Brad and Jesse’s business secured $5 million in start-up venture capital and the business has strongly differentiated itself, still running strong today. When you choose to Cardinal, you find the resources and skills to help you soar.
