Jerry started the business from an apartment, and now we own our building. We're proud winners of five Weatherhead 100 awards, three NEO Success honors, EY's Entrepreneur of the Year, SBA's Small Business of the Year and COSE's inaugural Ten Under 10 Award.

If you could reinvent yourself, who would you be and why?
Victoria: A full-time philanthropist giving anonymously to those in need. It would be great to have a life-changing impact on others.
