Adam was referred to neba in 2005 through the Lower Pioneer Valley Collaborative in Wilbraham, MA.
When Adam started at neba he didn’t know exactly what he wanted to do, but he had an interest in working with computers and applied to several jobs in the field. After months of hearing “we’ll keep your resume on file”, Adam grew tired of job searching but continued to learn new computer skills.
neba referred Adam to Eric F. Pavlak, an Information Technology Specialist, to further expand his skills. When Eric began teaching Adam about web design, Adam realized that what he really wanted to do was start his own small business. He filed the proper paperwork, and Wilbraham Web Design was born in mid-2006. Adam also learned about small business ownership, attending business courses at Springfield Technical Community College. By the end of 2006, Wilbraham Web Design already had a handful of clients.
Since then, Adam has received numerous awards including the 2008 APSE National Entrepreneurial Award, the 2009 Young Entrepreneurial Scholars Award (including a $500 startup award), and two citations from the Massachusetts State House and the Massachusetts Senate.
Wilbraham Web Design now has well over 30 clients, and continues to grow rapidly. “I enjoy what I do because every project is different and things are always changing, so it is constantly a learning experience,” said Adam.
