Kevin Kittilsen

Kevin has used many of the concepts he’s learning as an entrepreneur and small business management major to create an online company with one of his classmates. As a student, he’s already well on his way to fulfilling a career goal.

“I want to run businesses that I start from the ground up,” he says. “If you want to be your own boss and like the idea of ‘the sky is the limit,’ entrepreneurship is a great major for you.”

Kevin and his business partner Mat Borej were in many of the same classes when they created their company, Flip Your iPhone. Their solid foundations in several business-related areas made the start-up process manageable.

“The major incorporates finance, accounting, marketing and so much more. I have background in all these areas,” Kevin says. “North Central has taught me so many of the things I’ll need to know in order to run my own business.”
