Avery Gobbo ’20
Avery, an economics major and mathematics minor, is passionate about the environment, personal health and nutrition. He joined the Entrepreneurship Pathway hoping to graduate with the skills to start and sustain his own business. Avery's varied interests inspired his animating question: Is there an opportunity in the active outdoors, healthy lifestyle industry to either innovate or invest in products and companies that strive to give back to the environment and/or foster sustainability in their practices? Avery spent last summer working at Kind Snacks, a health food company that prides itself on giving back to the community. The experience allowed him to see firsthand how companies can succeed economically while also having a positive social benefit. This summer, he is again working at Kind and has also joined on with Mill St. Brewery, a Canadian beer company that focuses on environmental and social sustainability.
