IonX Technologies

I believe that the struggles that entrepreneurship entails makes you a stronger person. I started this as a middle schooler as a computer and movile device repair service in South Jersey. Ever since then, I've been getting a good amount of customers in the area. I'm currently working to expand in the Central Jersey area. Today, and in the future, I am working on not only expanding my services, but to create new technologies.

Known as one of the largest residential painting companies stationed at Irvine, CA, this internship provided entrepreneurial experience to run a business.

I hired, trained, and managed employees for production and managed payroll. Over $50,000 was produced in revenue in the time I have interned here.
