ASU entrepreneurship students followed a successful business model and are seeing the results from the program. ASU recently placed in the top 50 entrepreneurship schools in the country, according to College Choice.
With students spread across all four campuses at ASU, the University has helped over 300 start-up companies from students, faculty and staff.
Mitzi Montoya, vice president and dean for entrepreneurship and innovation, said in an email that ASU encourages students to pursue entrepreneurship and receive their diploma at the same time.
“At ASU, if you can dream it, you can do it,” Montoya said. “For students looking to make their ideas happen or help a friend make their idea happen, ASU has many programs and resources available to support them.”
Montoya said regardless of a student’s major, they can make their ideas come to life when the usual focus is on business students.
“ASU is committed to creating entrepreneurship and innovation experiences for all of our students,” Montoya said. “In addition to getting a great education, we’ll help you make your ideas happen.”
Cesario and Albreski’s company, Sudz Club, is a service that provides college students across universities with the essentials of hygiene, like shampoo and conditioner, and charges for the service. They came up with idea after one of their friends forgot their shampoo and conditioner during move-in day.
The two have been best friends since their childhood, even after they moved from their homes in Chicago to Arizona for school. Their long friendship makes their business relationship easier.
“It’s egos aside,” Cesario said. “It’s been pretty awesome.”
