Starting a business is never easy. It takes a lot of time, boundless amounts of energy, and patience. Adam Shlomi, founder of SoFlo SAT Tutoring and a Georgetown University graduate, shares his experience starting a business with the College Scoops community. Adam will provide advice to students eager to learn more about the difficult yet rewarding process of entrepreneurship.

Key Takeaways:

  • SoFlo works to provide accessible and affordable test preparation services for prospective college students
  • The internet is a wonderful academic resource for students, as demonstrated by the COVID-19 pandemic and the transition to online learning
  • Being fully remote helped SoFlo expand its opportunities and hiring abilities
  • The conventional hiring process (i.e cover letters, in-person interviews) is flawed in some ways, thus SoFlo strives to improve this by getting potential employees excited about the work they will do
  • Student entrepreneurs that are interested in starting their own business should be aware that building a solid customer base is vital for any company to succeed
  • Think less, and do more; an entrepreneur can begin the process of ‘doing more’ by making a user-friendly and appealing website for customers to explore and utilize
  • SoFlo offers a scholarship program that allows students to participate in SAT tutoring classes free of charge
  • For some, working on projects may be more important than networking when starting a company
