Geek Squad Founder Revolutionized Tech Support with $200 and a Bicycle

New College of Business students will find out exactly how a guy with $200 in his pocket and a bicycle revolutionized the tech support world in the early 1990s.

About 2,000 new students are expected at the CFE Arena on Friday, Aug. 26 to hear Geek Squad founder and former Best Buy CTO Robert Stephens.

Stephens will be the keynote speaker at the college’s Welcome to the Majors event. Each semester hundreds of new business majors attend the event for an introduction to the college’s culture of engagement and to listen to successful business professionals share their stories.

Guests are invited to speak because of the college’s strong commitment to show students how individuals can create their own futures with a good idea, an entrepreneurial spirit and sound education.

Last year’s guest speaker was marketing guru and author Seth Godin.
