StartUp Weekend participant, Tux on Trux starts real-world business from an idea cultivated at the 56 hour entrepreneurial event. The business has changed the way students shop for formal wear for proms and other formal events. Tux on Trux brings the services of formal wear rental to the schools by offering onsite measuring, delivery and pickup. Students who have used the process so far really like the convenience.
The counselors at the Columbia SBDC office located in the USC Tech Incubator participated as coaches during the event where they advised all participants, including Tux on Trux, in the development process of their ideas. Tux on Trux established itself as a sound business concept and took advantage of the many mentors and coaches offering assistance during StartUp Weekend.
