BBA 2000 (Finance)
Owner, Voss Distributing
Before graduation, Zac Voss, BBA00, spent time sailing the coast of Europe. During his travels he saw great potential for starting a business distributing Red Bull Energy Drink in the state of Iowa. Using skills learned in entrepreneurship, finance and marketing classes, Voss wrote a business plan for Voss Distributing and was awarded the exclusive distributorship for Red Bull Energy Drink statewide.
He started his business while a senior at Iowa, delivering cases of Red Bull from his apartment building. Today, his business is located in Des Moines, has more than 25 full-time employees, and sales continue to grow. Today, Voss Distributing delivers Red Bull throughout the state of Iowa as well as to Rock Island, Illinois and northeastern Missouri.
As a supporter of entrepreneurial initiatives at The University of Iowa, Voss recently contributed financial support to the Bedell Entrepreneurship Learning Laboratory, helping UI students gain access to resources and assistance for starting businesses. His innovative idea has become a reality thanks to his business training at Iowa. Zac sees the value in supporting other students as they learn more about business and make their ideas a reality.
