Whitman’s business students recently attended the Extreme Entrepreneurship Tour at the Brentwood campus of Suffolk Community College.  Over 350 business students from Long Island gathered as the Extreme Entrepreneurship Tour’s top young entrepreneurs spread the entrepreneurial mindset. During the half-day event students listened to inspiring entrepreneurial stories from several of the country’s top young millionaire entrepreneurs including Devin Lars.

Devin is CEO/President of ‘Doing Everything Different’ (D.E.D.). With a facility in California, D.E.D. produces its own clothing, as well as developing products for others. It counts Chris Brown (Who wore one of D.E.D. designs when he won the award for Best R&B artist at the 2011 BET's Awards.), Justin Bieber, Rick Ross, Trey Songz, 50 Cent and Terrence J, host of BET's popular music video countdown show 106 & Park, among its customers.

Students also interactively participated with presenter Bert Gervais, a.k.a. "The Mentor Guy" who is one of America's most in-demand professional speakers. Haitian born Gervais is a national best selling author, speaker, and award-winning entrepreneur who encouraged students to seize opportunities without hesitation.
