COLLEGE STATION, TX. (Friday, Oct. 22, 2010) – Internet Contrasts Company of San Antonio, TX is among the top 100 companies named to the 6th Annual Aggie 100 honoring the fastest-growing companies in the world, owned or operated by Texas A&M University former students. Internet Contrasts Company was recognized as number 9th on the list with a growth rate of 71.09%. The Aggie 100 honors graduates from across disciplines and is a program of the Center for New Ventures and Entrepreneurship in Texas A&M University’s Mays Business School.
Brandon Zumwalt ’99 realized that not all small businesses can afford to hire an IT department, a niche that led him to launch Internet Contrasts. He started the company with two goals, to put food on the table and to reach sustainability without his everyday interaction. Brandon says in the beginning he was learning on the job, overcoming obstacles such as knowing how to motivate employees who don’t have the same vested interest in the company’s success. His ability to adapt and learn through experience has helped him develop Internet Contrasts. Through his involvement in the Corps of Cadets at Texas A&M, Brandon says he learned the skills to maneuver through the corporate world. He looks to a bright future for Internet Contrasts and one day wishes to delve more into the financial world.
