Why should you win the Under30CEO March Madness Entrepreneur Mashup?

Kasey and I have exactly what it takes to be the next top entrepreneurs and CEOs. We are passionate, resilient, and fearless. We are fortunate and blessed to be able to do what we are doing. Our families and friends have been so amazing and supportive throughout everything. Through this endeavor Kasey and I have learned so much about business, life, and relationships. This is only just the beginning, and we are thrilled about the ride that’s ahead.

Who are your co-founders and what are they like?

Kasey Walker | kaseywalker@kambit.com | 25 years old | @kwalkdiddy

Where to begin…Kasey and I have been friends since grade school. We grew up in the same town of Fayetteville, AR – home of the Razorbacks #WPS. We have always hung out with the same core group of best buds. We are so fortunate to have such a close knit groups of friends.

Kasey and I are a lot alike, and we compliment each other in so many ways. Kasey caught the entrepreneurship bug early on. His father has always owned and operated restaurants, and Kasey found himself working all the way from server to GM. He has learned a tremendous amount about the service and hospitality industries. My dad also owned his own business, but I was always focused on my academics. I received my undergraduate in Accounting and Finance, and then my Masters in Accountancy from the University of Arkansas. I then got my CPA and turned down an opportunity to work with Ernst and Young.

Kasey and I are best friends and an amazing team. We are extremely passionate about what we do!
