“Billionaire or Bust” is the headline on an article in Chicago’s RedEye featuring two undergrads in Information Technology and Management. Waylon Janowiak ’13 and Joshua Hensley ’14 are partners with graphic designer Jenna Compton on GoSosh, a site that will allow businesses to reward customers through social media. The article chronicles the travails of the three young entrepreneurs as they tweak their product in preparation for an unveiling set to take place later this year. Janowiak and Hensley are both honor students in the ITM program and are members of IIT’s chapter of Gamma Nu Eta, the National Information Technology Honor Society; Janowiak is the Vice President.
