Chad Ackerman '14 (DAAP)
I am Cincinnati Smart because I was able to take advantage of all the great minds here at the University of Cincinnati from faculty to students. I learned early on in college I wanted to become an entrepreneur and build products that address and solve problems in the world. As a Digital Designer, my field has a unique opportunity to help build digital tools to fill in the gaps where this technology has not yet reached.
Through my connection in the Sigma Chi Fraternity as well as friends I had made on campus I was able to be part of building a business composed of students in LCB, CEAS and DAAP. Through this diverse team we were able to build NiteLife, a mobile application designed to enhance the night life experience here in Cincinnati. I have been fortunate to meet and work with some really talented UC students, outside of my own major, and build a really great business. We only plan to go up from here, and THAT is why I am Cincinnati Smart.
