Today, Brendan is interning at QISoft, a software company headquartered in downtown Savannah. His team works daily to bring in new clientele and land big contracts. On campus, he’s the vice president of Delta Sigma Pi – a professional business fraternity – spearheading a program to teach high schoolers all about the art of the pitch. An art that COBA’s Center for the Advancement of Creativity and Entrepreneurship (ACE Center, for short) helps students perfect.
The ACE Center exists to spark and support students’ entrepreneurial spirits. That’s why ACE teaches SSU Tigers how to fine-tune ideas, start (and manage) businesses, craft proposals, find funding, build networks, and grow their current ventures. It backs COBA’s entrepreneurship minor and hosts Entrepreneurship Day, the Student Entrepreneur Showcase, and the Tiger BIG IDEA Pitch Competition. Plus, the Center partners with organizations like Creative Coast, a non-profit that promotes entrepreneurial and creative endeavors in the community.
That kind of experience and exposure will come in handy for Brendan as he works toward his dream. He’s already making moves: Brendan’s been accepted to the Hult International Business School in Boston to earn his master’s degree—on the road to getting his Ph.D. Seriously Impressive
