Graduating summa cum laude with University Honors as a major in Physics, emphasis in business, and concentration in national security and intelligence is a feat in and of itself but Phillipe Rodriguez didn’t stop there. During his academic career, he has been a member of the Honors Board, Cal State D.C. Scholars Program, the Intelligence Community Scholars Program, Sigma Upsilon Mu Entrepreneurship Fraternity, Phi Beta Lambda, and the Physics Club.

Phillipe didn’t start his illustrious academic career in college. While in high school, Phillipe’s AP physics teacher helped Phillipe attain an internship at Cal State Fullerton under the mentorship of Dr. Khakoo. During this time, he worked in the electron scattering laboratory. It was here that Phillipe honed in on his love of physics and the complexities it offered him. Although he enjoyed physic it also was his most challenging subject, so choosing it as his major was a task that he had to work on every day. Through his connection with Dr. Khakoo, Phillipe was introduced to the Dan Black Physics Business program which offered him scholarships to pay his tuition.

Phillipe learned many important life lessons during his time at CSUF; however, there are several that were most important to him. “First off, be grateful to those who have helped shape the reality that you live in.  There have been so many individuals who have helped me along my collegiate career that I dare not call out names individually as much as I can help it – they know who they are.” Phillipe also believes in paying it forward. Receiving scholarships though the Dan Black Physics Business helped him learn this lesson. “The Dan Black Physics Business Program heavily supported my tuition.  Dan Black told me that the scholarships I received were simply a loan, and that it is up to us to support future generations of scholars.”

Because of this promise, Phillipe started a scholarship fund called the Rodriguez Graduate Admissions Scholarship for the College of Natural Science and Mathematics. He then went on to fund a grant for the University Honors Senior Honors Project for the 2016-2017 academic year.

Phillipe is now working for the United States Air Force as an acquisition civilian at the Space and Missile Systems Center. Because of his background in physics, entrepreneurial studies and national securities and intelligence, Phillipe fit perfectly into this position. He credits his education in physics helps him solve problems that arise while working. His skills in entrepreneurial business give him the understanding of financial data and lean methodologies. And his national securities studies have shown him how to appreciate the work that he does.

Phillipe has sought to stand out in the acquisition community through his numerous professional endeavors. Phillipe is currently the Vice President of Programs for the National Contract Management Association (NCMA) South Bay Chapter, and successfully passed his NCMA Certified Federal Contracts Manager (CFCM) examination in December. Furthermore, he was selected to participate in NCMA’s prestigious Contract Management Leadership Development Program (CMLDP), which selected 21 contracting professionals from industry and government to participate in the 2017-2018 cohort. This past year Phillipe participated in the inaugural Stanford Hoover Institution Summer Policy Bootcamp, and completed the program with distinction. Among the professional education that he has received with the Air Force, in a contracting course taught by the Air Force Institute of Technology, Phillipe was top graduate among his peers and earned the title of distinguished graduate.

Phillipe leaves our community with some lasting advice. The advice comes from a man who knows about limits and taking on too much. “Much like our muscles or cardiovascular endurance, our capacity to manage our time can become more effective only when it has been put under stress.  Therefore, we shouldn’t inhibit ourselves to tasks that may appear to be difficult.  We only need to heed the warning signs that are placed in front of us, and when we see that we cannot accomplish all that we have set out to do until risk of fatigue, then we must either withdraw or ask for a helping hand – knowing when to do so has made all the difference.”

During his senior year at Cal state Fullerton, Phillipe applied to Stanford to earn his MBA. He was accepted and deferred his admission until this fall. He hopes to continue his career in a leadership position in the Department of Defense. We look forward to seeing where Phillipe ends up and what other impacts he will have on the future.

CSUF Entrepreneurship Alumnus Turns Tragedy into Something Magical

Candace and Brayv

Candace and Brayv

Turning tragedy into something beyond sadness is a hard feat to accomplish, but that’s exactly what Cal State Fullerton graduate, Candace Thome-Hopson, did. After the 2011 drowning death of her younger brother, Brayv, Candace used her grief to start the Swim Brayv Foundation.

Swim Brayv is a non-profit organization that was created to raise awareness for drowning prevention. Each event lays out steps to prevent drowning accidents as well  as teaches water safety to its participants. The idea for the organization came to Candace shortly after Brayv’s passing as she was going through her grieving process which consisted of studying drowning statistics. During that time Candace wasn’t sure if her idea to educate others on water safety would ever come to life, and she wasn’t sure if she had the emotional strength to put it all together.

But after finishing college and with the support of family and friends, she prevailed.

Swim Brayv Team

Swim Brayv Team

Every Swim Brayv event includes professionally trained mer-models and cause ambassadors. “Our volunteers are trained in water safety, brand ambassadorship, and drowning prevention advocacy,” says Candace. Volunteers speak to families about water safety and pass out advocacy cards to the public that have the acronym B.R.A.Y.V.

The public is asked to memorize the acronym. They are then asked to hold onto the card, and when the time is right pass it onto another person so they too can share in the message.

The acronym B.R.A.Y.V. is five tips to be safe around the water and prevent further drowning deaths.

B – be aware…

Save a life by being more aware of your surroundings when near water. Things to Know: who can swim well vs. who cannot, where flotation devices are kept, and the water depth/temp etc.

R – rest…

Without rest injury or drowning is more likely to occur. Swimming is a life-saving skill 1st, a sport 2nd, & lastly a fun play activity. Be sure to not overexert energy; rest when needed.

A – act fast…

If you see someone struggling or hurt in water (or if a drowning has occurred), act fast to save a life. Remain calm and help them! When needed call 911 and begin performing CPR.

Y – you can help…

Advocating – publicly standing up for water safety – can help lower drowning statistics over time. Take the Swim B.R.A.Y.V. Pledge and help us advocate.

V – victims of drowning didn’t expect it…Prepare yourself!

Proactively prepare yourself/loved ones to be around water; Drowning can happen to anyone. Take swimming lessons, become CPR certified, and always have a water-watcher present.

As recognized by health and safety organizations, drowning is the 3rd leading cause of unintentional injury and death worldwide for all ages. In the United States of America: drowning is the second leading cause of unintentional injury and death in children aged 1–14 years; it is The Leading Cause of unintentional injury and death for kids under 5 years old in the US. More specifically in our home state of California, the drowning rate for children 14 and under is higher than the national average. Making drowning a much higher risk in CA for kids under 15 years of age. These facts, along with her brother’s death is what pushed Candace forward in launching the Swim Brayv Foundation.

Candace is a Cal State Fullerton graduate with a degree in Entrepreneurship. She was able to take what she learned as a student and put those lessons, coupled with her hard work and passion, to create such a memorable organization. Candace was able to take what she learned at CSUF in order to help her grow her organization.

I was able to sit down with Candace after one of her events, in Garden Grove, CA, and discuss how she believed her education has helped her grow and where she wants to take Swim Brayv in the future. “I learned how to gather primary research and because of that I know how to go around talking to people, and do my surveys to a useful extent,” said Candace. She went on to explain that being able to do her own research helps her build her knowledge and her organization, and lead Swim Brayv in a positive direction.  “If what we’re saying isn’t helpful, if it’s not impacting… we need know so we can change that.”

Candace said that they were on a 5-year plan and in the end they would expand to other states as well as internationally. “After we dominate the United States in the next three years, we do have an international plan, a five year plan to attend events [globally] and start building partners overseas, so we can make a global difference.”  Swim Brayv already has cause ambassadors in several different states that are ready to take up the banner to spread the message.

Swim Brayv currently has 70 plus volunteers and is looking for interns for their spring/summer events. Intern positions will include, online/visual marketing, event operations and fundraising. If you would like to apply to become an intern for Swim Brayv please contact the Swim Brayv Foundation through their website https://swimbrayv.org/

SAVE LIVES. SWIM BRAYV.

The Patent Process

Austin Bonderer Patent Attorney

Patent Attorney Austin Bonderer

On July 12, the CSUF Startup Incubator had a guest speaker to discuss the topic of patents. Austin Bonderer, a patent lawyer, visited the Incubator in order to present potential patent landmines that small businesses and startups should be aware of. He specifically addressed an answer to the question “What happens after you have your idea and how do you protect it.”

Before the event, I was able to briefly speak with Austin about his talk and himself. Austin received a degree from the University of Virginia and graduated with a degree in Civil Engineering. Austin has been working in and around patents since 1998. He started his career in patents as the University of Virginia Patent Foundation (now called UVA Licensing and Venture Group). While working toward his law degree, Austin worked for 5 ½ years as a patent examiner at the United States Patent and Trademark office. During this time, his work concentrated on valves, business methods, and medical devices. After his time there, he was a clerk for the Board of Patent of Appeals. From there he became the Head U.S. patent prosecutor for FoxConn Technology Group as a patent lawyer. With all that experience under his belt, he opened up his own firm.

As a patent attorney, Austin always cautions his clients on not moving too fast and to make it a point to go through proper channels to get a patent. Austin started his presentation with a list of pros and cons of why a business should invest in a patent license.  A patent is an “asset to increase the value of your business” said Austin. He went on to describe the process of obtaining a patent, warning the attendees that the average amount of time to acquire a license is 2 years.

The first phase is the search for prior art, this is where a business would conduct a search to see if their product has already been patented by someone else. This stage is optional as the patent office will conduct their own search; however, Austin advises to do it as he explains that the patent office search is not the “end all-be all” and patent examiners only have so much time to search for a certain patent. There are several times for when you should, as a business, conduct a prior art search, this would be at conception, when your first product is made and once more during launch.

“A patent is a negative right, not a positive privilege” said Austin. This refers to the right to keep someone else from making your product.

The second part of the patent process is the Application Writing phase. In its simplest form, this phase is filling out the application for a patent and then paying for it. This is the costliest part of the process, not because of the patent itself but because of attorney fees in order to get the application. A patent application can cost $5,000 or much more.

The last phase of obtaining a patent is the prosecution phase. This phase is turning in the application and (hopefully) getting approved.

Austin continued by presenting a list of “landmines” that companies might face when creating their invention and the following stages. These possible barriers included the invention itself, any employees, inventor and outside parties. He gave tips and directions on how to close these loopholes.

Do you have intellectual property that needs protecting? Get in touch with Austin by going to his website for more details on how he can help you protect the most important assets your business owns.

But a patent is only a part of the process of going from your concept to launch. To access expert coaching on how to start your business and gain access to many other professionals like Austin you should join the CSUF Startup Incubator as our next Resident entrepreneur. Working with the CSUF Startup Incubator is not free but it should be seen as an investment in your business with the ROI being launching your business sooner and having a clear startup road map for your business.

Cal State Fullerton Startup – Wecadmi

Brent Maxinoski ’17 and Cayman Elkin ’17 worked hard to earn their Bachelor’s degrees in Entrepreneurship at Cal State Fullerton and now they are working hard on putting those degrees to the test by preparing to launch their startup, Wecademi, with the help of the CSUF Startup Incubator.

Travis Lindsay, Entrepreneur in Residence, for the CSUF Startup Incubator was able to sit down with Brent and Cayman to discuss their business with the discussion focusing on what they’ve accomplished so far and where they plan to go in the future.

The idea for Wecademi was born in one of our entrepreneurship classes and is now being actively worked on at the CSUF Startup Incubator. The mission of this company is to match students who need help in what are referred to as “bottleneck” courses with students who have passed and even excelled in these courses. These are courses that every student, in a specific major, needs to pass in order to earn their degree. Because these courses are meant to push students, the failure rate of these classes can reach as high as 40%.

Through Wecademi, struggling students will be able to connect with a tutor who has already mastered the course that they are having difficulty with and hopefully use what they learn through the tutor to pass their classes and save some money by not having to retake any courses.  Although preliminary testing for Wecademi will be introduced exclusively to Cal State Fullerton students first, Brent and Cayman have plans to expand the program to additional universities.

Brent and Cayman have already produced a basic website for Wecademi and have taken the first steps in creating their minimum viable product (MVP) for Wecademi, which you can see at http://wecademi.com/ To see more of what Brent and Cayman have in store for Wecademi please watch the video below.

The CSUF Startup Incubator is an organization within Cal State Fullerton that works with entrepreneurs to help them get from concept to launch. Every entrepreneur that contracts to work with the CSUF Startup Incubator receives expert startup consulting and guidance from Incubator staff and a dedicated startup coach. Initial engagements are for six months but can be extended by the entrepreneur. For more information on this program, please send us an email to csufentrepreneurship@fullerton.edu

CSUF Startup Incubator Resident Ben Yip

Ben Yip has launched his business, Aidtree, with the help of the CSUF Startup Incubator

Ben Yip has launched his business, Aidtree, with the help of the CSUF Startup Incubator

Starting a business is no easy task, even for a former investment banker like Ben Yip. About a year ago, Ben came to the CSUF Startup Incubator looking for help with the launch of his philanthropic app called Aidtree. Aidtree is a philanthropic coupon retailer that enables people to purchase discounts at the establishments that they frequent and a portion of all of those sales goes to a cause that the people purchasing the coupons supports.

Prior to consulting with the CSUF Startup Incubator, Ben had been independently crafting the Aidtree website. Although he had a strong understanding of how he wanted his site to run and knew what he wanted it to look like, he exhausted his skills in building it.

“The Incubator helped transition these elements into an actual business with implementation guidance and positive support from my advisers,” Ben said. Looking for help and knowing he was not at a stage where he could bring his company to venture capitalists, Ben turned to the CSUF Startup incubator. After meeting with the CSUF Startup Incubator staff Ben was convinced that they had the knowledge and the connections to help him start his business.

“From the first meeting I knew that Ben was dedicated to making Aidtree work. It is his passion. We love working with entrepreneurs like him because they have determination to keep on making progress even when things inevitably get tough,” said Entrepreneur in Residence Travis Lindsay.

When Ben brought Aidtree to the CSUF Startup Incubator he was in the minimum viable product (MVP) stage of development, which is kind of like an alpha version of a product or service. He was trying to create his website to satisfy the early adopters of Aidtree. The CSUF Startup Incubator helped Ben develop his MVP into a more functional offering. “The Incubator helped transition [my MVP] into an actual business with implementation guidance and positive support from my advisers.”

Before coming to the Incubator, Ben had gone to several other incubators to see what they could do to help his company; but none of them were a fit. He chose the CSUF Startup Incubator because it’s mentors provided him with the help and encouragement he was looking for. “They were unlike a lot of other venture firms,” reflected Ben on the Incubator, “They said, ‘how can we help?’ That was very refreshing.”

Reflecting on his time as a resident at the Incubator, Ben was satisfied with his results. The Incubator helped me move to the next level of my startup development.”  He also complimented the Incubator on its enthusiasm and the depth of knowledge from the Incubator’s faculty and mentors as well as the Incubator’s vast network.

As of now, Aidtree has successfully launched a soft rollout in the Fullerton Area and is working on adding more businesses, causes, and users to the site.

Cal State Fullerton Student with an Entrepreneurial Mission wins Thrive Scholarship

Pamela Martinez Sierra (Left) won the Thrive Financial & Bookkeeping Services Entrepreneurial Scholarship sponsored by Karla Amador (Right)

Pamela Martinez Sierra (Left) won the Thrive Financial & Bookkeeping Services Entrepreneurial Scholarship sponsored by Karla Amador (Right)

Pamela Martinez Sierra’s ingenuity, passion, and hard work made her the best choice for this year’s Thrive Financial & Bookkeeping Services Entrepreneurial Scholarship sponsored by Karla Amador, the founder of Thrive.

Pamela is a native of Chile and the daughter of a governor. Like her father, Pamela is a leader as evidenced by the fact that she was twice elected high school president and she was the captain of her soccer team three years in a row. Being a leader is good but her family also stressed the importance of giving back and she took that to heart by frequently volunteering in the community.

As a school leader and an active member in the community, Pamela saw many of her peers excel in their studies but were ultimately unable to pursue a degree due to a lack of economic opportunity, which also makes it hard for many Chileans to find stable employment. For Pamela, this wasn’t the case. The financial stability of her father’s job afforded her the option of pursuing higher education. She took the opportunity and promised herself that one day she would return to Chile and be a leader for those who are trapped by circumstances beyond their control by building “new opportunities, generate jobs, and facilitate success” for those that have been left behind.

But first Pamela had to get her education and she decided to get her education in America. She started out at Orange Coast College and now she attends Cal State Fullerton where she is pursuing her Bachelor’s degree in Business Management with concentrations in Entrepreneurship and Operations & Supply Chain Management. Here, she is learning many lessons that she will be able to use to achieve her dream.

Everything was going according to plan but then the unthinkable happened. Pamela’s father had a heart attack and he ended up having to step down from his job due to his health. Having sold off many of the family’s assets to pay for the successful bypass operation, the money that her parents had been allocating for her education was cut off.

Finding the funds to pay for college and to live off of has gotten tough but she is driven to accomplish her mission and persevere. Pamela will be going into her senior year as a student of California State University, Fullerton and will use the Thrive Scholarship money to pay for a portion of her tuition and school fees. This scholarship will help Pamela achieve her dream of creating an “organization with social and economic values.”

The Thrive Financial & Bookkeeping Services Entrepreneurial Scholarship was created by entrepreneur Karla Amador. Karla established the Thrive scholarship due to her own experiences with struggling to pay for school. Karla overcame her struggles and now owns her own accounting business. A portion of all the sales from her firm goes toward starting scholarships for well deserving students such as Pamela.

Karla, like Pamela, worked hard to persevere and pursue her dreams. She told herself “When I’m successful I want to pay it forward.”

CSUF Consulting Team Helps LA County Small Business with Marketing Plan

 “I needed to make a change.”

After years of feeling like he was putting his job as a police officer before his family, Andrew Lee just wanted to find a way to make a living and still have time to play cops and robbers with his sons. With a dream and a webpage, Andrew found his niche.

tomato bathAndrew’s small business started when he decided to board dogs at his Diamond Bar home. From there the seeds for Diamond Bar Dogs and Estate Management were planted.  Andrew’s daily tasks have now gone past boarding and walking dogs. Diamond Bar Dogs not only provides professional animal services such as feeding but they get into the nitty gritty of dog care such as administering tomato baths for dogs who have been attacked by skunks. Although the business had started out offering pet services they have now expanded to landscaping, dry cleaning services, and provides private transportation.

For almost five years, Diamond Bar Dogs has had a profitable income stream but after 14-months of no new clients, Andrew decided to move in a new direction and entrust his company to the students of California State University, Fullerton’s Consulting program. Andrew worked with six CSUF students who spent time evaluating his company, working alongside him, and presenting Andrew with their recommendations for Diamond Bar Dogs. Andrew complimented the group, which included Danny Corona, Steven Allen, Jonny May, Khoi Pham, Reuben Ponce De Leon, and Ally Sanchez.  “They were willing to sacrifice and maybe even go beyond what they needed to. So, that was beyond my expectations,” Andrew said of his experience with the team.

After their initial meeting with Andrew to get a better understanding of his goals, the consulting team went to work. After hundreds of hours spent evaluating the business, taking time to get an up close and personal look at operations, such as helping getting the dogs ready for walks, they put their heads together and came up with an in-depth list of ideas to take Diamond Bar Dogs and expand its customer base. The most significant piece of advice that Andrew took from the group was the need for marketing his business. At the end of the presentation Andrew asked the group what they thought was the one thing he needed to concentrate on in order to improve his business. Their resounding answer: Marketing.

CSUF Consulting Team

“It is something I think I’ve ignored…. My own idea of marketing is a company vehicle with signage on it,” Andrew said.

After this was brought to his attention, Andrew’s next question was how they thought he could improve in this area. From here they discussed using mailings and online marketing to garner new clientele. They even discussed getting a second vehicle, an idea with which Andrew had toiled with on his own.  The team then presented him with a comprehensive strategic plan they developed for how he could implement their recommendations for a new marketing plan. They even went as far as providing Andrew with quotes for marketing services that would fit his needs and purchasing a domain name.

At the end of his time with the CSUF consulting team, Andrew had an outsider’s look at what he could implement in his business to help it become even better than it is. Andrew went on to compliment the level of commitment he received from the CSUF Consulting group he worked with and talked about how he appreciated the work that was completed.

“They took it as far, as if they were a partner with my group. That was great,” said Andrew.

DrewanddogAndrew promised himself and his group that he would commit to 2-3 of their proposals and apply it to his future business plan. He went on to say that he would recommend local small businesses, such as restaurants, to become a client of the CSUF Consulting program. He also believes that businesses that may not have the resources, such as time or expertise to grow their business, should consider becoming new clients.
