Christian Betz is a senior at U of L. He is in the business school, majoring in Marketing and minoring in Entrepreneurship. He is a driven entrepreneur ready to start up a business in the Louisville/Southern Indiana area. He has extensive sales experience, in the automotive and cellular sales industry. He has been developing and growing his idea of the “Charging Buddy” into a reality in the last 2 semesters during his Entrepreneurship courses. He has found a problem in the marketplace that consumers want a solution for. He is an entrepreneur with leadership qualities, ready to launch his business. Christian has taken the initiative to prototype the Charging Buddy, working with LVL1, Louisville's hackerspace. I've seen him first hand go through at least 3 iterations in one night. Combined with his sales experience and customer interviews at Sprint, he listened to a problem and is in the process of creating a solution.
