As part of my last year at the University of Minnesota, I’m taking a class called Entrepreneurship in Action. In this class, we start up our own company. Seriously. I’m actually doing it.
I’m CEO of a company called Nesel Packs, and it’s been my labor of love (I honestly don’t know if that’s a phrase) for the last year. On March 19, we are launching a Kickstarter to raise $10,000. It’s a big task, but my amazing team and I are more than up to the challenge.
We create backpacks for students with autism. Students with autism often have a difficult time in school because their senses are overloaded (sensory processing disorder is really common among autistic students). We want to create a safe and comfortable environment for them and we think this is a great product for that.
