Tre Borden, MBA ’11
Most MBAs don’t give up secure jobs to sell earrings made of masking tape.
But that’s what Tre Borden did, leaving a job with a local utility to help market a friend’s Tapigami products.
“If I can’t do something more fun and entrepreneurial, who can?” Borden said. “I can’t wield a paintbrush, but I can connect a client with an artist.”
