With collective backgrounds in business management, finance, marketing, communication, and information technology, the team produced a series of increasingly sophisticated business plans and promotional materials.
The Effimax team went on to compete in several of the country's most prestigious start-up business competitions. Effimax established its solid foundation after achieving a first place victory in the University of Illinois 2011 Cozad New Venture Competition. Today, the Effimax team consists of the original dedicated founders.
