Campus Ink co-founder and CEO Steven Farag was honored this week as a Central Illinois Business Magazine Forty Under 40 recipient.
The award spotlights outstanding young business professionals making an impact in the Central Illinois community.
Farag re-founded Campus Ink in 2015 and has since grown it into a national brand and attracted the attention of Mark Cuban, who invested in the company in early 2022.
Farag was nominated by Campus Ink co-founder and mentor Jedd Swisher. Said Swisher: “In 2021 when NCAA rules were changed to allow college athletes to profit off their NIL, Steven positioned Campus Ink to be one of the first businesses in the nation to offer a merchandise solution to athletes.”
