Keynote Speaker: Innovator, Entrepreneur, President and CEO of Apollo Design Technology, Blue Pony, Avid Labs, and other magnificent ventures.
Free for GFWHCC current members / $10.00 for Non-Current Paid Membership Associates. The GFWHCC Board of Directors and associates welcome current and prospective members to the 2nd quarterly networking & membership meeting of 2016.
Joel Nichols is an entrepreneur by nature. Challenging the status and looking at things differently is his core strength. Joel and his wife Keersten, who serves as HR manager, started Apollo Design Technology in the basement of their home in 1992. It was the modest beginning of what has grown into a threesome of start-ups. In addition to Apollo Design, Joel and Keersten own Blue Pony and AVID Labs, all boasting rosters of first-rate talent.
“I am a true believer that opportunity has to be created, it does not just happen”. If I had a core quote it would be “innovate or die”. Joel’s endeavors have won multiple awards for product innovation and customer service. Apollo Design holds the designation as one of the fastest growing companies on the Inc. 500 list. It speaks to the power of perseverance. As a boy, he hoped to become “a business person, pilot and inventor.” Today, he can say he has been blessed in many ways.
Joel attended Purdue University. Currently, he is an active member of his church community.
