FRISCO, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--A new venture – Beyond Graduation – debuted in June at APSCU 2011 as one of the organization’s newest Allied Members. “There’s nothing like starting in your own backyard,” said Michael Fischler, President and CEO of the newly formed Beyond Graduation. Last year, Fischler’s company – Journey Education Marketing – was the third fastest growing private company in Dallas.
Having sold Journey Education Marketing to Digital River (NASDAQ: DRIV), Fischler decided to take his 20 years of online academic sales and marketing experience into a new arena: logo apparel and related items targeting college alumni.
“Over 3 million students graduate each year from college. The affinity that these graduates have with their alma-mater enhances each year as the new graduate appreciates what their school did for them in helping them succeed,” Fischler commented.
Fischler is excited to get started. “We opened our online business with over 100,000 products for over 350 colleges and universities. We can create customized school eStores that they can then use to maintain a conversation with their alumni, provide a requested service, and fundraise for their institutions. We think that this particular triple play will be a win for everyone involved.
“And it is special to have it all start here in the Dallas area. I’m looking forward to my new company ranking high in the prestigious Dallas 100 in a very short order,” Fischler added. “In celebration of our opening, Facebook fans of Beyond Graduation will find special offers and highlighted products.”
