Florida Tech Sparks Entrepreneurial Spirit with Business Development Lecture Jan. 26

MELBOURNE, FLA.—The Nathan M. Bisk College of Business Center for Entrepreneurship and New Business Development at Florida Institute of Technology will offer a free presentation, “The Journey from My Garage to the Corner Office,” on Jan. 26, from 11 a.m. to noon. The talk is led by Travis Proctor, founder and president, Artemis IT, and will be held on campus in Evans Library, Link Multimedia Room, second floor.

Through the Visiting Entrepreneur Program, accomplished business leaders are invited to share real-world knowledge, experience and insights in starting and managing a successful business enterprise.

Originally from Montrose, Colo., Proctor has always possessed the entrepreneurial spirit, from operating his first company out of a renovated garage as a high school student to founding an IT services company while a sophomore at Florida Tech in 1995. In this presentation, Proctor will share his experiences and lessons learned along his journey.

In 1998, Proctor received a bachelor’s degree in computer science information systems from Florida Tech, finishing first in his class. He currently employs 34 people and has clients throughout Central Florida. In addition, he manages two real estate investment companies in Florida and Colorado.

Proctor is an active member of the community and serves on several community and company boards.

In 2006, Florida Tech awarded him the Graduate of the Last Decade or GOLD award and in 2007 he was the first inductee into the Montrose High School Hall of Fame.
