Omaha, Nebraska (PRWEB) February 23, 2013
With the emergence of smaller-scale niche networks, Elephant Water, Inc., is a multi-functional online platform that fosters college entrepreneurship on campuses across the United States. The company is celebrating its first transaction at University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill where a sophomore successfully sold a Haier compact refrigerator.
Elephant Water, Inc., a new tech startup based in Nebraska, has begun its quest to groom college students to develop entrepreneurial thinking. The website is predicated on allowing students to sell goods and offer services to other students, engage in business networking opportunities, and access tools and resources needed to grow and sustainable a scalable business. “Today with Corporate America continuing to downsize, it makes it harder for students to find jobs. Our overarching purpose is to offer a platform that gives them resources to work for their own selves opposed to the traditional norm of working a “9 to 5””, said co-founder, Baxter Smith.
Elephant Water, Inc., started as a vision from its founders, Jamerus Payton and Baxter Smith, to cultivate an ambitious and entrepreneurial spirit amongst college students. “As former college students, we graduated and realized that having a good job did not satisfy a certain hunger for solving issues and passion for entrepreneurship. We understand that all students are not entrepreneurs, but we want to inspire and motivate the students that have the DNA to take risk and follow their own personal vision”, said co-founder, Jamerus Payton.
Elephant Water, Inc., is very optimistic about its long term success due to an array of features they plan to roll out in increments on the website. Chief Technology Officer, Torrence Reed, added, “The opportunities we have with our framework are limitless. We decided not to roll all features out simultaneously because we want to build momentum as we continue to grow. We want to stay focused on the core during our “infancy stage”, and then add the nuances in the long term”.
