From L to R: Nate Ryan, Lori Howard, David DeFilippo, Mike Kirtland, and Jed Casteneda. Mr. DeFilippo awarded his New Venture Panel Scholarship to the team pictured above, OneMessageID.

One of the many unique aspects of the CSUF Entrepreneurship Bachelor’s Degree and Minor is that each student that earns either of those degrees will be part of a team that develops a business plan and some actually progress far enough to launch their business ideas. It’s an amazing process to witness and the amount of work that these students put into these projects is impressive.

For the last three semesters, David DeFilippo, Regional Vice President at Union Bank, has sponsored a scholarship for the team that has the most promising business. This semester the scholarship went to OneMessageID’s team leader Mike Kirtland (pictured above). We here at the Center for Entrepreneurship heartily thank Mr. DeFilippo for his and his company’s generous support of student-entrepreneurs at Cal State Fullerton. Continue reading

CSUF Entrepreneurship School Year in Review: 2013-14

Another wonderful school year has come to a close and we couldn’t be prouder. This year we have accomplished many things and our students have exceeded all expectations. Recently, we hosted an Awards Celebration and I would like to take the time to give you an overview of everyone who was recognized.

Since 2011, Michael Sawitz and his incubator, FastStart.studio, has supported CSUF student-entrepreneurs by providing full tuition to multiple student startups each year. This year, Michael (pictured right), awarded two such scholarships, one to Andre Conde’s (pictured center) White Light Medical and Quinn Royston’s Cordomi Rentals.

Michael Sawitz graciously supported two scholarships that will pay for all the tuition costs to his business incubator, FastStart.studio. Each of these scholarships is valued at $25,000 and each of the winners, incidentally, were top three finishers in this year’s CSUF Business Plan Competition.

Andre Conde’s White Light Medical was one of the recipients for this prize. White Light Medical has developed a device that will aid in spinal surgery by cutting down on the risks and time needed for this type of surgery. Continue reading
