Student Stories

“If you are passionate and driven enough about an idea and making something happen, and you believe you can do it, you should. There is no better way to learn than to DO

– Lauren Barnes, OneKindCup, CEO, Management ’22

“Cultivo exists because of Project X-ITE. Our founding team met through X-ITE, did six-figures in revenue from DU’s network, and learned skills that we will never forget with the support of so many.”

– Scott Romano, Cultivo Media, CEO, International Business & Economics ’20

Half of us live together, sometimes we survive off of cereal and pizza rolls, and we’re burning the stick at both ends, BUT we are so excited to be doing what we love.
