How did you find SOIS?

When trying to find a way for Evans to pursue both his degree and business idea, his professors and mentors suggested he explore SOIS. “SOIS has a flexibility with learning that I think we all need more of," he said. "As soon as I found the program, I knew I belonged there. It was the first time I felt at home at RIT."

How has this fellowship helped you?

Evans is able to travel and explore options for new warehouse spaces across the country without worrying about missing classes. He will also receive co-op credit for the fellowship, which counts toward his graduation requirements.

“Every step of the way there was someone that knew what the next step should be,” he said. “I’m quite thankful for everything they’ve provided me with and all the help they’ve given to me.”

Where will Librex Fulfillment go next?

Evans has high hopes for the future of Librex Fulfillment. He plans to expand into a multi-warehouse fulfillment network and become a seamless extension for international businesses in the United States.

“We want to go full circle and cut out the middlemen,” Evans said. “The goal is to make shipping to North American markets easier and more sustainable for international businesses.”

Goals for his fellowship experience:

1. Establish a warehouse network.

2. Develop an in-house software system to make it easier for customers to manage their businesses.
