I’m proud to say that NXT LVL ENT has been making progress with our clothing line initiative. We’ve received the first installment of funds from the Failure Fund grant and have successfully opened up a joint account with Wells Fargo. We’ve contacted the UTees representative and will be able to order the first shipment of shirts very soon. In the meantime, we’ve been talking with a lawyer, a Davidson Alumni, Doug Kim, to discuss the legal implications of starting a business and managing a clothing line. This includes trademarks, copyright and the necessary steps to becoming an entity.
We’ve also been in contact with other Davidson Alumni; specifically Matt Loftus and Kevin Hubbard, the founders of Rhoback, a polo-shirt company. Matt and Kevin will serve as mentors for us as we embark on this journey. We’re sure we’ll learn a lot from them. All in all, we’re off to a great start and Phase one will soon be in full swing. The money is secured and we have mentors to guide us through this process.
