Ryan Hesslau Named CECE’s First START Scholar Entrepreneur


The Center for Entrepreneurship and Community Empowerment is proud to announce that Ryan Hesslau, founder of foreverU, has been named its first START Scholar Entrepreneur.   As a START Scholar Entrepreneur Ryan will be afforded time to work on his startup, foreverU.  In addition he will assist CECE’s director by mentoring other entrepreneurial students and representing CECE at various events.

The START Scholar Entrepreneur appointment is for the Fall 2016 semester.   To qualify, candidates must be Trinity students with a successful track record in leadership, a start-up beyond the Customer Validation stage, and the heart to make a positive difference guided by Christian values.

Last academic year Ryan was a member of the Future Founders Fellowship Program.   His start-up seeks “to revolutionize and enhance the understanding of bullying.”  In this capacity, he made a guest appearance on the Steve Harvey Show.

CECE will be making its home on Trinity’s campus, in the former Molenhouse Student Center.
