Matt Davis, BBA in Entrepreneurship and Strategic Management '02
Founder, College Fund Landscaping

As a high school student, Matt Davis mowed lawns to earn money. He called his business College Fund Lawn Mowing -- and the moniker was no exaggeration. Years later, Davis still operates the business, now called College Fund Landscaping, which in turn supports UNT Ryan College of Business students with The College Landscaping Fund Scholarship, requiring recipients to have a part-time job. After graduating cum laude with a degree in business administration with a specialty in entrepreneurship, he focused on expanding College Fund Landscaping. It now has more than a dozen employees who work with 2,000 clients on services that range from mowing to landscape design.
