What is your current business or business idea?

I am currently working on an idea that play's with Twitter API's and tracking trending news stories. It's breaking news meets web 2.0 API's. It's in the early stages.

What is your background as an entrepreneur?

I have always had the entrepreneurial spirit in me. When I was a kid I lived on a gold course and sold the golf balls people hit into my yard back to the golfers for a profit. In high school I played around with unique, collapsable cup holder for baseball players that latched onto a chain-link fence. The company-idea won a Angel Business Plan competition - but sadly the other contributers where not dedicated to doing it. In college, I quickly got involved with Innoblue and everything else I could in order to learn the most I could in the shortest amount of time. I want to use college as the time to really learn what it takes to run a startup.

What do you think you will be able to provide to the group?

A unique lens into the student community. Being in PLA, the co.space, New Leave, and Innoblue communities, I want to help bridge all of these ideas and people that can be useful to one another.

What are you hoping to get from the group?

I want to build meaningful relationships with State College entrepreneurs and get advice on coding and leadership. At the end of the day, I know I am just a college student looking to learn. The more I learn the more I can pass on to the Innoblue community and progress myself.

Introduction

Hey I'm Mitch! I'm an Energy Engineering Student at Penn state and a State College Co.Space resident. As VP of Innoblue, I am trying to help create a unified entrepreneurial community within Penn State and help student start their own companies.
