Two UW-W student entrepreneurs visit White House event

While most UW-Whitewater students began the week with classes, two student entrepreneurs traveled to the White House yesterday.

Junior Andrew Hoeft and freshman Daniel Fink attended the invitation-only event focusing on mentorship.

Professor William Dougan also attended.

Dougan said the national chapter of Collegiate Entrepreneurs’ Organization hand-picked UW-Whitewater to send students to the event in Washington D.C.

The event was sponsored by the Young Entrepreneur Council, Inc. Magazine and MTV.

Both Hoeft and Fink are members of UW-Whitewater’s Collegiate Enterpreneurs Organization.

Hoeft, a finance and marketing major, is the CEO and founder of Pinpoint Softwares, a company that created an expiration date management system for grocery stores across the nation.

Fink, a business major, founded MacBros, which is a company that repairs and sells Mac computers.
