WASHINGTON, April 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Enlightened, Inc. ("Enlightened"), a leading provider of Information Technology (IT) consulting services, announced today that its President and CEO, Mr. Antwanye Ford, was featured in The George Washington University's Alumni and Friend newsletter, The Colonial Cable. The Colonial Cable asked Mr. Ford, along with six other GWU Grads and Entrepreneurs how their accomplishments were shaped by the education they received at The George Washington University (GWU).
The GWU publishes Colonial Cable newsletter monthly to inform alumni, friends and family of the GW community about current events and accomplishments. The Colonial Cable's feature article this month was dedicated to the impressive entrepreneurial spirit of the current student body and six impressive alumni that graduated from the program.
The article was published as a tribute to the record-breaking number of students entering the GW Business plan competition this year. The intention was to prove that the opportunities experienced at GW at events such as this play a pivotal role in shaping their success in the future. Antwanye Ford, Enlightened's President & CEO is living proof of this story.
The George Washington University is proud to report the success of the School Of Business Entrepreneur program. In the article, they bridge the gap between success stories of alumni with the growing competition of the current students. In the article, they state that, "From a record-breaking number of student entries in the GW Business Plan Competition to a growing Office of Entrepreneurship, the Colonial entrepreneurial community is on the rise. We spoke with several accomplished alumni entrepreneurs to learn about how GW influenced their business and their keys to success."
Mr. Ford's passion for entrepreneurship and inspiring youth is evident throughout the article. Mr. Ford noted that, "The thing about entrepreneurship is it really exposes young kids to the possibilities in their life. Some of these kids were never told they could own something, that they could make something of value and sell it. There is no amount of money or success that will allow you to survive the hard times if you don't believe in it."
