AQx Sports had the privilege of being involved in a project in conjunction with the Business Department at Washington State University-Vancouver this spring. We were contacted by Ron Bertolucci, Senior Vice President Community Investment Team Leader at First Independent Bank, in Vancouver, Washington and Adjunct Professor at WSU-Vancouver. The class he teaches utilizes senior-level business students during their final semester to provide consulting work for local businesses. WSU chooses small businesses that fit their particular criteria for the project and a group of four students was chosen to work with us this year. The goal of their project was to produce and present a consulting report to us by the end of the semester. As a business owner we provided time for the students to adequately assess our needs and obtain the information required to provide feedback to us. Also through this program, we have the had the honor of working with Becky A. Olsen MBA, PMP, Business Operations - Project Manager at Boeing Commercial Airplanes in Portland, Oregon, our mentor for the program and a huge asset to us as a company. As our mentor, Becky volunteers to assist us in ways that help the student project truly work for us as a company.
A special thanks from the AQx Team to Becky, Ron, WSU-Vancouver, and the four students that worked on our project!
