The votes have been counted and the winner of the sixth annual Makers’ Mart competition has been named!
On Friday, December 4, 2020, Samson’s Haircare earned the coveted 2020 Makers’ Mart title at Catalyst University. As winner of the competition, Samson’s was recognized with a $2,500 cash prize awarded by competition sponsor Western Michigan University’s Haworth College of Business. Additionally, Samson’s will receive MiSpringboard legal services courtesy of Varnum LLP and marketing support from Newhall Klein. The company’s founders, Adam and Jake plan to use the earnings to expand their network saying, “The first thing we would love to do is attend the Barber Expo. There’s plenty of hair shows but very few dedicated directly to barbering. This expo would take us from being a Midwest niche company to hitting all 50 states plus Puerto Rico and Guam.”
