“If it wasn’t for Thomas College and the Entrepreneurial Club this [TreeFreeHeat] would have never started. I became a national winner. I started my own business and was involved with clubs. It was more than just school, it was fun. At age 22, I’ve had success and I have employees. I have a business and a waiting list for my product.”Dylan Veilleux ’20, MBA ’21, Founder of TreeFreeHeat
Dylan founded TreeFreeHeat, a fire starter company started his company back in 2019 while an undergraduate student here at Thomas, and he’s been scaling his business since becoming a graduate student here this year.
