“The connections I made with the Entrepreneurship Alliance really helped in my success at starting a business,” Knabe said. “I've made many relationships through Mizzou and the Trulaske College of Business which have helped the business grow into what it is today.”

One of Knabe’s favorite experiences at Mizzou was being able to attend the 2015 Private Equity Summit conference in Park City, Utah. Such opportunities are available to students interested in entrepreneurship and business who are looking to make business connections while still attending classes.
