Noah Currier, founder of Oscar Mike, will share his entrepreneurial story at Rock Valley College on Tuesday, February 26, 2013, 2:00-3:00 p.m. in the Student Center Atrium on RVC's main campus (3301 North Mulford Road).
Oscar Mike is a clothing line founded by Currier (from Poplar Grove, Ill.), a disabled Marine veteran. The company sells 100% American made military themed apparel and brand-line active wear. "Oscar Mike" is radio jargon used by troops on the front lines to say, "Get on-the-move!", hence making it the perfect moniker for an organization whose core is motivating and inspiring an active, positive and productive lifestyle. Oscar Mike has allowed Currier to employ other disabled Vets, aid in rehabilitative programs, and organize a disabled Veteran based non-profit organization.
You can learn more about Noah Currier and Oscar Mike at oscarmike.org.
Brian McIntyre, Director of the Small Business Development Center at RVC, will also be speaking about the entrepreneurial services available at the SBDC.
Tuesday's event is sponsored by Enactus (formerly SIFE- Students in Free Enterprise), a student club at RVC. Enactus is also a national organization, a community of student, academic and business leaders committed to using the power of entrepreneurial action to transform lives and shape a better more sustainable world.
