  • “As you look for people to join you on your journey into entrepreneurship, find people who complement your strengths and see the world differently than you. It’s common that all three of us will experience the same thing and walk away with completely different experiences. The diversity in our team has been one of our biggest strengths, and we highly recommend intentionally seeking out different points of view to others looking to start something new.”—Brandon Keelean, Stamps School of Art & Design, MDes 2018, Cofounder
