Joseph Hyman ‘11, CEO & Founder, MoJoe Brewing Company B.S.M.E., University of Maryland, Baltimore County
Joseph founded a company that crosses your coffee maker with your travel mug to create a mobile brewing machine that can deliver a fresh cup of Joe just about anywhere. Born right at UMBC, this ‘million-dollar’ idea went from conception to consumer product with the combined efforts of self-teaching and motivation, dogged entrepreneurial perseverance, and the relentless desire to learn more. With no formal business training, Joseph is an unlikely start-up founder, but often stresses that anyone can start a successful company.

David Schleigh ‘99, Founder & Creative Director, HighRock
B.S. Geography, University of Maryland, Baltimore County
HighRock opened its doors in early 2005, focusing on branding, web development, and print design. Since then, they’ve grown from a team of 5 to more than 35, and they’re still growing. Over the years, watching current trends and learning the importance of diversification, HighRock expanded its services to include Video Production, Digital Media Marketing, and 3D/VR Technologies. Recently, they purchased a 10-screen movie theater and turned it into a wildly successful business venture that they hope to roll out all over the country.
