Luke Schneider

Luke Schneider is a rising star in Stetson’s Entrepreneurship Program. His most recent business venture, the Schneider Spike, earned him first place at Stetson’s Fall 2017 Business Pitch Competition. The Schneider Spike is a cleat cleaning tool used for major outdoor cleated sports in the US and Europe. Congratulations Luke!

Luke is a serial entrepreneur. At the age of 16, he developed and launched a successful campaign in South Kansas City called The Clean Desk Campaign. This campaign raised awareness of the importance of wiping student desks with antibacterial products to reduce sickness. The Clean Desk Campaign received recognition from the city’s Mayor.

Luke’s business savvy comes from a strong disposition to learn. This quest for knowledge and gaining practical experience has led Luke to work in the golf industry, a Major-League Baseball team, and a high-growth software firm.

Born from a Canadian mother and a father of German descent, Luke is a globally proficient student. “My international family background allows me to bring an international approach to my business ventures”, said Luke in a recent interview.

Luke plans to graduate early (in three years) as an alumnus of the Roland George Investment Program with a B.B.A. in Finance. Luke has a bright future ahead and we can’t wait to hear about his successes.
