The great aim of education is not knowledge but action.

The Idea

             Once upon a time, in a freshman dorm at PC, three friends were messing around complaining about the uncomfortable chairs they were sitting in. Those rugged old chairs got them thinking about what possible alternatives were out there for them. They searched around online for a while, but they couldn't find anything that was the right fit or high enough quality. They joked that they could design and supply a better version, and even joked about making it into a company.

            By now you have probably guessed that little story was about us, and this idea bounced around in the back of our minds for a while until we decided to make it a reality this past summer. Our goal was to tackle the challenge of forming a company, and all of its necessary components head on so we could learn more about businesses and how they operated. We soon came to find that what we had learned in the classroom was vastly different than what we experienced in practice, which is why we did this in the first place. We hit many bumps in the road, but we sought out the help of our teachers and mentors for guidance.

            We have truly come to enjoy this challenge and the ability to bring what we have learned in the classroom to the real world. Without the help of everyone who has assisted us in this process, we don't know if we could have accomplished this mountainous task. We thank all who have helped, and we hope you enjoy our product and join the College Cushion family!
