Venture Company Highlights
ShipMonk Continues to Soar
Shipmonk, a Venture Class 1 company, has achieved remarkable success since joining FAU Tech Runway. The company has earned $5 million in revenue, created 35 full-time jobs and up to 60 part-time jobs. They will be moving into a 35,000-square-foot facility this month.

ShipMonk uses a sophisticated application to help people all over the world buy anything they want (from a shirt to a boat) in the U.S. with any currency, even BitCoin, and have it shipped to their location.

"The incredible growth of Shipmonk absolutely could not have been possible without the dedicated support of FAU Tech Runway's staff and mentors, plus all of the services provided to us at no cost," says CEO Jan Bednar. "Truly an indispensable resource!"

Check out this great Tedx Talk that Bednar gave in 2016, discussing what college students need to know before starting a business, here.
