INNOVATION AND CREATION Seidman students find business success The new L. William Seidman Center, home of the Seidman College of Business, was built by the generosity of private donors. The building is already helping business students, including management seniors Vanessa Gore, Michael Kurley, and Lindsay Noonan, find success. The trio co-founded Soletics, Inc., and have produced their first product, a solar powered jacket for winter athletes. The jacket’s solar panels collect energy that is then used to actively heat the wearer’s extremities while simultaneously cooling the core. After researching their target audience, the team found that cold hands and an overheated chest were main complaints with those who enjoyed winter sports, like skiing and snowboarding. The Soletics students’ business understanding and entrepreneurial drive has led them to opportunities they did not expect.


“This is an experience I would have never dreamed possible,” said Noonan, who thought of an early concept of the product while on a cold winter run.

started a business, but we’ve competed and we’ve traveled. That is real experience that you can’t get anywhere else.”

The founders of Soletics met in a management course taught by affiliate instructor Tim Syfert. Each member, at Syfert’s urging, signed up to participate in the Michigan Clean Energy Venture Challenge, a competition for students statewide.

Currently, the Soletics team is continuing to further their product and company. They are seeking a $50,000 microloan, which will allow them to create a fully functioning jacket for athletes to test. Soletics is planning to take pre-orders of the product this winter.

“We all sat on opposite sides of the room, and signed up without even knowing each other,” Gore said. “But, we really bonded in the four months before the competition.”

The Soletics team is an example of the wellrounded students that the Seidman College of Business is producing. Through their journey, the members have learned how to work with limited resources, gained presentation and communication skills, and experienced the power of both teamwork and networking. The Seidman College of Business instills in students a mindset of innovation that will help students regardless of major or job placement.

The team’s work paid off when they won best prototype of the competition out of a field of 70 applicants. Syfert isn’t surprised by the team’s success. “They’re here for a purpose,” he said. “The purpose is not just the education; the purpose is doing something with their education.” The three decided that the project had too much potential to dissolve after their first competition or when the semester ended. Since Soletics formed, the students have participated in a number of business competitions, including the prestigious International Business Model Competition at Harvard University, where they were semi-finalists. Soletics has also worked with over 60 community professionals to create their product, and shared their knowledge as mentors for Grand Valley’s Teen Entrepreneur Summer Academy. The team members agreed that the L. William Seidman Center, and the resources it houses, has helped their venture continue to succeed. Even finding a place to meet as a group, Gore said, is easier in the new building. Future students will have the same opportunity to benefit from the Seidman College of Business.

Gore encourages other students to find their own success as a Seidman student. “Even if the entrepreneurial ventures they start don’t succeed completely,” she said, “they have that experience they can bring into the business world and the entrepreneurial mindset to help push them forward.”

“The resources available to you here, if you are willing to engage them, are phenomenal.” - Michael Kurley

“The resources available to you here, if you are willing to engage them, are phenomenal,” said Kurley. The experience the Soletics team has gained while at Grand Valley will undoubtedly help them in the future. “When we graduate, we’ll have real, relevant experience thanks to the Seidman College of Business,” Noonan said. “Not only have we

BU I LT FO R THE FUT URE New Library Designed For Student Learning

Thanks to 1400 donors, Grand Valley students have access to a national model for 21st Century Learning. The Mary Idema Pew Library Learning and Information Commons provides an interdisciplinary and academic space that will evolve with students’ needs. The library is flexible enough for changes in how students will learn in future generations. Research was conducted to discover exactly what students will need to advance academically and socially in the future. Results made it clear that students needed a space that would not only allow them private space to study, but also give them a chance to work and study with their fellow classmates to grow new ideas.


“In previous decades, it was very much a solitary act where students were essentially using their minds, gathering information, and digesting it. What we’ve seen evolve over the years is that learning has become much more of a community activity,” said Erin Fisher, Library Program Manager. “It’s not so much about gaining access to information, but taking information and growing it into something new. It is the difference between knowledge acquisition and knowledge creation.”

students, the way they study, and the way they learn,” added Carlos Rodriquez, Associate Dean of Technology and Information Services.

All of the features added to the new library allow for this knowledge creation to occur. Peer mentoring in the Hines Corporation Knowledge Marketplace and the creative environment in the DTE Energy Foundation Innovation Zone allow students to learn and expand their understanding of the world. Physical details like floor to ceiling white boards, technology enhanced presentation rooms, and movable furniture to accommodate teamwork, were designed to meet student needs.

“Grand Valley is definitely a fortunate community. We have an entire community from Grand Rapids to Allendale and beyond who want to see the university succeed. This library gives us a lot more to be a part of, and a place to study and do our work,” said Czarnota. “It makes us feel more included and a bigger part of Grand Valley as a whole. We owe it all to these donors.”

“This building is for the students, so it’s not a static building. The library is a growing living organism. We want the building to adjust, grow, and change over time for

Students, like Andrea Czarnota, who use the Mary Idema Pew Library can now study in an enriched environment that supplements classroom learning. This remarkable space would not have been made possible without the help of the community that supported it.

The Possibilites Are Endless... Thanks To You The Grand Valley University Foundation began holding Enrichment Dinners in 1976 as a celebration of giving and to provide an opportunity for the entire Grand Valley community to reflect on their accomplishments. This year’s dinner, held June 5th at DeVos Place in Grand Rapids, brought together 1,300 of Grand Valley’s friends and supporters. The theme of the night, “Momentum,” captured Grand Valley’s successful past and energetic drive into the future. Richard M. DeVos, longtime general chairman of the GVU Foundation, opened the dinner by reminding attendees of the importance of leadership. He said, "You can't buy leadership. You can't buy a school like this with just money. It takes a spirit. It's up to you to carry on that great love affair."

Four individuals whose leadership has made a significant impact on Grand Valley were honored at the Enrichment Dinner. Bea Idema’s community philanthropy and commitment to Grand Valley was recognized with the Enrichment Award. She was also inducted into the university’s Hall of Fame. For their active commitment and leadership, Brian and Paqui Kelly received the Leadership Award. Professor Emeritus Joan Boand was recognized for her service and leadership with the Arend D. Lubbers Award. President Thomas J. Haas gave a university update, saying Grand Valley supporters are the force that is accelerating our university into the future. The evening was emceed by Jim and Donna Brooks, co-vice-chairs of the GVU Foundation. ›› WWW.GVSU.EDU/GIVING/MOMENTUM
