Student Profile: Anne Skoch
Anne Skoch was a member of NEOVSF during her senior year at Kent State and we had the pleasure of interviewing her for our student profile series. From hearing about her high school business ventures to the recent success of her startup, Anne Cate, her entrepreneurial spirit shone bright even over the phone. Anne’s accomplishments are a great example of how anyone, at any age, can prosper in Northeast Ohio.
Thank you for taking the time to speak with us, Anne. Your story is great motivation for others pursuing their ideas and we’re excited to see what the future holds for Anne Cate!
Our 20th Investment!
We are excited to add healthcare startup, OndeCare, to our portfolio!
In Spring of 2020, NEOSVF’s student participants and board of directors collectively made the decision to fund OndeCare. OndeCare's platform provides on-demand and part-time family care, including childcare, eldercare, and care for those with special needs, by connecting pre-vetted credentialed caregivers with families juggling jobs and care of loved ones. This investment is a milestone for NEOSVF and for OndeCare as they work on enhancing their system.

Last December we had the opportunity to speak with Nicholas Marsteller, Kent State University’s student manager at the time for NEOSVF. It was made evident very early in the interview why Nick was a chapter leader. He was a natural conversationalist, carrying the conversation past a simple response, and his passion for entrepreneurship was apparent as he spoke on his experiences and future plans for his own business.
Thank you, Nick, for being our first interview in this series. It was great to hear your perspective on things and we can’t wait to see where the future takes you.
