Newport Beach, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/18/2015 -- Orange County Business Journal has nominated Mike Olivas for their 2015 Excellence in Entrepreneurship Award. This is the 2nd year Mike Olivas has received a nomination. The Orange County Business Journal says the award, "is designed to recognize individuals who exemplify the American entrepreneurial spirit – individuals who, by their creativity and determination, have established and nurtured successful business ventures."
Mike's expertise in innovate sales & marketing to members of college fraternities and sororities is what has seen him nominated for the Orange County Business Journal Excellence in Entrepreneurship Award for a second time. His T.E.A.M. software project has experienced 8 years of light-speed growth while pushing a multi-million dollar valued group travel technology. His phase 2 version of the automated formal building software has gone into two of his company websites http://teamexp.com and http://formalbuilder.com. The T.E.A.M. enabled websites mimic the process Greek leaders take on when planning their formals. They allow Greek leaders to quickly give a "per person price" to their chapters while packaging banquets, menus, travel and locating DJs, photographers, hotels and buses. The company is now valued at $8MM.
Mike spoke about his nomination and T.E.A.M technology saying, "I am very honored to be nominated by the OC Business Journal. Orange County, California, is one of the entrepreneurial centers of the world. What's special about OC is the diversity of entrepreneurship. Entrepreneurs from every sector and niche are found here."
Mike's new venture will be becoming a speaker for Greeks across North America and focusing on the message "Collegiate life to real life". Mike wants to spread his enthusiasm for entrepreneurship to college students. It was while Mike was in college that he discovered his passions for starting and growing businesses. He says about his experiences, "What is really amazing about what I do is that I get to inspire college leaders to become interested in entrepreneurship. After my own experiences in marketing on college campuses for companys like Rockstar and Monster Engergy, I set out to create my own contribution to Greek life. That's when I developed T.E.A.M., which is like the Expedia for planning college formals. Making life easier for people is what being an entrepreneur is all about. When Greek leaders use our technology they see what one can accomplish through entrepreneurship."
Mike is interested in finding campus reps for paid positions to promote his T.E.A.M driven websites and more info can be found here: http://tcm.teamexp.com/
