Bradley Ericson ’13, co-founder and CEO of 3SecondReceipts, has been named one of the 25 finalists for the 2010 Global Student Entrepreneur Awards.
“It feels amazing to find myself in such a prestigious group of student entrepreneurs,” Ericson says. As a finalist, he was invited to a two-day NYSE event and afforded the opportunity to network with more than 20 CEOs and the 25 other student finalists. “There I met up with executives from the NYSE, Ernst & Young, Google, and several other rising tech companies,” Ericson says.
The event also included workshops and a walking tour of the actual NYSE trading floor – something Ericson says he’s wanted to do since he was 10 years old.
Top regional and national winners advance to the 2010 GSEA Global Finals for the opportunity to engage with world-class entrepreneurs as well as for cash and in-kind prizes. The Global Student Entrepreneur Awards are presented by the Entrepreneurs’ Organization, a dynamic global network of more than 7,300 business owners in 42 countries.
Ericson’s company, 3SecondReceipts, is developing a platform to create manageable, itemized digital receipts to replace traditional thermal paper receipts. It just launched a new website, campusreceipts.com, which students can use to organize campus purchases, earn rewards, and download coupons.
