Alex Brzozowski, a graduate of the Cathedral Prep Class of 2012, is the founder of 2GoBrand.
The company started in the fall of 2016. “We started 2GoBrand with out first product, ShoeShine2Go,” he said. “We couldn’t find an on-the-go shoe polish product that used real polish and was TSA approved. We fixed that, and now we’re expanding our playbook to a full line of natural personal care products.”
2GoBrand is currently developing a full line of natural personal care products for men & women. Brzozowski graduated from the Miami University in 2016. The beautiful campus, located in Oxford, Ohio, had many businesses nearby, and Miami’s Farmer School of Business is one of the best business schools for public undergraduates.
Growing up going to school at Saint Peter’s Cathedral Center, Brzozowski decided to go to Prep because he has had family history there. Plus, being a student-athlete he always wanted to go there from a young age.
While at Prep, Brzozowski was a part of scholar program that was very helpful when he went to the University of Miami. It helped him to feel a whole step ahead of everyone and just have the confidence to be able to get through it.
Just the fact of being able to get the AP classes and opportunity to get credits helped a lot. At Miami he was a part of an entrepreneurship organization, the executive board for his fraternity, and the coaching staff for a division one school as an undergraduate.
He started with entrepreneurship program at Miami with ideas of developing products and the goal of starting a company. He got the idea of making his very own brand during college, and he worked with engineers that have helped to develop his company. As a couple of friends started companies and they achieved their goals, Brzozowski thought that it was a great idea to start his own.
Miami also gave him many opportunities with the excellent teachers and programs they had at the university. Brzozowski offered some advice for soon-to-be-graduating seniors. “For the seniors, have an open mind. “Colleges are going to be expecting make sure you put yourself out there. So get involved in clubs, [go to] sporting events, and enjoy the new people you meet. Doing many of these things will shape you better, and you will have one of the greatest times in your life,” he said.
