Unique Influence co-founders and McCombs School of Business Executive MBAs Chantal Pittman and Ryan Pitylak are featured in today’s Texas MBA Insider. As part of the MBA Startup series, a regular feature dedicated to highlighting ventures founded by Texas MBA alumni and students, Chantal and Ryan shared advice, insights, and lessons they’ve learned from growing Unique Influence from an idea to a successful business.
From the Texas MBA Insider:
The idea for the company originated in a McCombs classroom, when Texas MBA ’12 classmates Ryan Pitylak and Chantal Pittman realized they had the skillset and experience to lead a digital marketing startup. The two Executive MBAs had previously worked together on another project and knew they’d make a great team.
