Mitchell Zvagelskiy isn’t your typical college junior. He runs a major business. He launched Scale Online, an ecommerce company, in early 2020 with a middle school friend. Scale Online teaches clients about ecommerce and manages stores directly for folks who don’t have the time or skills to do it themselves.

The startup has seven U.S. staff and more than 50 overseas, and it manages more than $4 million in products.

“The networking at USF is great,” says Zvagelskiy, who sees college as a prime time to meet and connect with people his own age. “I’ve built so many relationships.”
