Aaron Lamb of LiftnBuddy Named Top Business Professional Under 40 by Prairie Business Magazine
North Fargo, ND -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/26/2013 -- Kris Bevill, staff writer for Prairie Business, profiled forty business professionals under the age of forty. The honorees selected represent a cross-section of the immense talent that exists in varied sectors throughout the region, providing inspiration for the entire business community through their determination to exceed expectations and willingness to work hard for success.
Bevill reported, “Aaron Lamb is the founder Lift’n Buddy…his entrance into the world of entrepreneurialism happened by chance. After majoring in international studies at North Dakota State University, Lamb eventually accepted a temporary position as a sales representative for a coffee and tea distributor. The job ended up lasting for several months because representatives were continually injuring themselves while trying to lift heavy equipment. Seeing the frequency with which company representatives sustained injuries led to the “a-ha” moment that eventually resulted in the Lift’n Buddy.
The North Dakota State University Research & Technology Park accepted Lamb and his team into its Technology Incubator and has provided business development expertise in preparation for his company’s full-fledged launch. Lamb mentors at NDSU urge young businesses to focus on current projects and monetize them before moving on to their next ventures.
