Chevan Baker is an entrepreneur that boasts a reputation as the passionate “go-to guy” who can get things done in a pinch. He is the founder and CEO of the tech startup 1Place4Tech. His entrepreneurial beginning dates back to his elementary school days when he came up with the idea of painting collected rocks and selling them door-to-door to neighbors who would be willing to purchase. Growing up, Chevan was heavily influenced by his father who left his job in Corporate America to open his own business. With the ideals instilled in him by his parents, Chevan began to embark on a journey toward entrepreneurship.
During his freshman year of college, Chevan and his childhood friend started and operated a tech blog startup for 3 years. During his senior year, Chevan helped guide a co-designed patent-pending device to a level of notoriety which ultimately helped him secure the first student partnership with the university and featured in multiple media outlets including Ebony Magazine. Post college, Chevan decided to continue to be a maverick and embark on a journey toward running and operating his own startup to be the example for others to look up to and emulate.
