Alumnus and MBA student Andrew Anderson ’18 received a 2020 Student Veteran Leadership Award from GI Jobs Magazine and was honored in the August edition of the magazine. Anderson served five years in the Army and two years ago started his own business OVROUT, which sells streetwear fashion.
Anderson said his company donates some of its profits to veteran organizations. He also hopes to set up an entrepreneur fund in the future. “We would take profits from the business and create this entrepreneur fund for people who are transitioning out of life in the military and want to start a business,” he said. “We would basically be the go-to source for advice and funding.”
GI Jobs Magazine bestows the Student Veteran Leadership Award to veterans who overcame challenges to excel as students, volunteers, and leaders.
