Bryant Class of 2010
THE WORLD'S FIRST EXCHANGE FOR BUSINESS KNOW-HOW
Nick Candito graduated from Bryant in 2010. He majored in finance, but has since led teams at groundbreaking technology companies ranging from Crimson Hexagon in the Seaport District of Boston to RelateIQ (acquired by Salesforce) in the heart of Silicon Valley.
Nick has since founded Progressly alongside his co-founder, Clarence Wooten. Today, Nick leads the talented Progressly team from their headquarters in Palo Alto, California, on their mission to build the go-to marketplace for better business processes—and better business decisions. Bryant Ventures was part of the beta launch of Progressly, and the company was featured in an entrepreneurial marketing class taught by Sandra Potter in the spring of 2015. The core principles Nick learned at Bryant have been invaluable to his success, and the feedback he received from the Bryant community enabled Progressly to break through barriers faster than Nick could have imagined.

Bryant Ventures started in 2011 as the Entrepreneurs on Campus. Comprised of a group of ambitious students who wanted to get hands on experience starting a business, they meet weekly to encourage one another and give feedback. With Sandra Potter as the group's adviser and the hard work of teams throughout that first year and over the semesters since, Bryant Ventures has evolved into to something much greater.
