WKU ALUM MUAMER RAZIC SPEAKS AT CEI ENTREPRENEUR SPEAKER SERIES

WKU Alumnus and Bowling Green native Muamer Razic shared helpful entrepreneurial advice with fellow Hilltoppers at the Center for Entrepreneurship & Innovation’s Entrepreneur Speaker Series. This event took place on Tuesday, October 24, 2017.

“We are very excited to have Muamer come back and share his experiences with our current students,” said Dr. Dawn Bolton, Director of the Center for Entrepreneurship & Innovation. “Muamer is one of our great success stories!”

Razic graduated from WKU in December of 2016 with his Bachelor’s degree in organizational leadership, and minors in both sales and entrepreneurship. During his stay on the Hill, Razic was successful in his entrepreneurial endeavors. He participated in the spring 2016 Topper Tank Pitch Competition and won first place along with a cash prize of $200 for his business plan idea, Level Lacrosse.

Level Lacrosse’s custom analytic tool for lacrosse players called the Feeder, will help coaches, players and parents quantify player performance and growth through analytical feedback and metrics.   

With his Topper Tank success, he decided to continue growing his idea, and became a finalist in the fall 2016 WKU Business Plan Competition. Razic received helpful feedback from each of his victories and participated in the Idea State U Business Plan Model and Business Plan Competition where he won first place and $1,000 in the regional competition and advanced to the state competition. Due to his hard work, Razic successfully took first place and the cash prize of $25,000 at the state level.

Razic credited the help he received from the Center for Entrepreneurship & Innovation for starting him on his path to success. The Center provided the tools, feedback, and opportunities that he today still utilizes.

“It’s all about being original. Figure out how you work, what motivates you, and then get out there and do it,” said Razic.  That mindset describes how he was able to go so far within student competitions and to currently work on his business idea. He understood that he was a procrastinator, and that working under pressure gave him more time to brainstorm, as well as to motivate him to work more efficiently.

Razic reiterated to students in attendance that they had to just get out there and do it. He shared the quote that he heard from Daymond John, CEO and founder of FUBU, “if you’re going to fail, fail quickly.” He wanted his audience to understand that if they have an idea to just go for it, because if not they will highly regret it down the line.
