What does your start-up business do?

One of the many goals of Success Without Limitations (SWL) is to bring Richmond college graduates below the 53 percent national rate of underemployment and unemployment. By using workshops, lectures, and e-mentoring facilitated by established professionals, SWL instills in college students the necessary intangible skills needed to succeed post graduation. SWL strengthens social enterprise, cultivates career development, and establishes cohesive relationships while encouraging student acts of humanitarianism. In addition, we develop peer-led educational activities, by creating service learning programs for high school students to aid in their transition from high school to college.

How did your venture start?

In 2007, my venture Success Without Limitations Inc. was created as a student organization by myself and five college friends at Old Dominion University. Its initial purpose was to teach students enhanced business and marketing skills. Its transition from student organization to start up came as a result of wanting to extend this opportunity to high school students and have college members facilitate programs and campus tours in the local community.

How will you use the $10,000 cash prize to help your start-up?

With the funds raised, we will create a pilot program to test the effectiveness of our program and work with statisticians to decipher data accumulated from the pilot program. We will also use the funds to pay for branding, marketing, and operational expenses attributed to the development and execution of the pilot. Finally, we will use the remainder of the funds to award a scholarship to a current SWL member.
