At Ruby, Inc. we’re not about to go wasting our youth just being young and foolish. We’re looking to make something of ourselves.
In the corporate world we might be looked at as fresh-out-of-diapers but we don’t believe that just because we’re young we’re incapable of making an impact. We’re not loafing; we’re building a business and we hope to take this time begin to grow in our leadership skills to be a team worth emulating in the future.
We’re a small group of young people with big ideas and we’re becoming entrepreneurs. That’s why we’re proud to announce once again that we’ve been nominated for Inc. Magazine’s Top 30 Under 30 for the second year in a row.
We’re part of a generation that’s watching entrepreneurship crop up around the country and we’re fortunate to be part of an education reform that’s keeping up with the changes. In the early 1980s, there were just 270 entrepreneurship courses offered at colleges and universities across the nation. Today, there are roughly 5,000 and we’re proud to be a part of the class of Syracuse University’s Whitman School of Business who graduated studying entrepreneurial studies and small business management from the Entrepreneurial Bootcamp for Veterans with Disabilities Family program.
So wish us luck!
Oh and we’ll know Feb. 22 and we’ll know this January if we won the $20,000 grant from Fed Ex’s Small Business Grant Competition. We made the Top 100! Fingers crossed.
