Zachary Quinn

APPAREL BRAND EXECUTIVE

Zachary Quinn turned a college entrepreneurship class project into Love Your Melon, a nationally recognized company known for donating 50% of their profits to the fight against pediatric cancer. Since their beginning in 2012, they've given over 160,524 beanies to children who are battling cancer, brought countless kids and their families on "superhero adventures" to help them escape the stresses of their treatments, and donated over $6 million to support their non-profit partners.

Love Your Melon

What personality trait or skill do you consider your greatest asset?
It is most important to be organized, confident, and a good listener. To be a successful entrepreneur you have to rely on a lot of other people and those are the most important pieces in developing relationships
with others.

Is there a significant decision you made or experience you've had that has forever shaped your life?
Dropping out of college to run Love Your Melon full-time was a big decision, and one that I am glad I made. Focusing on Love Your Melon instead of finishing school allowed the company to become what it
is today.
