We Have Selected a Recipient For Our Fall 2018 Entrepreneur Endorsement Scholarship!
Congratulations to Jeremy Lim of West Chester University!
At Viking Mergers & Acquisitions, we believe in cultivating the next generation of entrepreneurs. Small businesses are the heart of the American economy, and to support the future of small business owners, our firm created the Entrepreneur Endorsement Scholarship. Founded in August 2015, the goal of the Entrepreneur Endorsement Scholarship is to help young entrepreneurs pay for their education while also promoting a strong community of passionate and innovative millennial entrepreneurs.
The selection of the recipient has been a long and difficult process. Seeing what the future of small business looks like for America is truly inspiring, especially when there are so many dedicated applicants to choose from. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our applicants for taking the time to apply and praise you for your talent, hard work, and commitment.
After carefully considering a number of impressive applicants, we are excited to announce the official winner of the Fall 2018 Entrepreneur Endorsement Scholarship: Jeremy Lim!
Jeremy Lim is an entering student at West Chester University. He is currently majoring in accounting but plans to change his major to finance. “Choosing this major allows me to guide people towards their financial goals and directly impact their lives for the better,” says Jeremy. “What I have realized is that we are given one life. Every second we live is always a chance to invest in ourselves and there is no time to waste this opportunity.”
Our scholarship essay asked applicants: If you could start a company or business with a celebrity (dead or alive), whom would it be and why? Also, what type of company or business would you start with that celebrity and why?
Here is an excerpt from Jeremy’s winning essay:
“What I have come to realize is that the business world has fierce competition and only the strongest can survive. After searching for the ideal candidate to start a business, my partner who will collaborate with me is LaVar Ball. He is a marketing genius by saying what people want to hear, which led to him being a household name on social media and gaining followers in the process. When he came up with the shoe called ZO2, costing four-hundred ninety-five dollars, the news spread like wildfire. The media exposure led to free advertisement towards his Big Baller Brand and people are starting to recognize the business.”
Viking Mergers & Acquisitions offers the Entrepreneur Endorsement Scholarship on a bi-annual basis and encourages students to apply for the upcoming Spring 2019 semester. Congratulations again to Jeremy Lim and best of luck to all future applicants.
