"Many students have lost their jobs as wait staff in restaurants and bars, as well as other areas, due to the COVID-19 crisis. Knack is one way we can help them replace lost earnings by creating their own job. It is a chance for students to see what it’s like to be an entrepreneur in a low-risk environment. What a great career and life lesson this could turn out to be for them!"

Susan Hanlon, Dean of the College of Business at The University of Akron
