Support BizTank

BizTank is the brainchild of Jeff Peterson and Mark Becker, co-founders of Geneva Supply, Inc. It’s an idea that takes the passion from one’s career and enlightens the minds of the communities’ youth, specifically, junior and senior high school students.

BizTank is for the dreamers, the planners, the “know-it-alls” and the “I’m-not-quite-sure-I-know-what-I’m-doing-with-my-life” type of kids.

Any kid that’s willing to take a chance towards creating a future they truly enjoy, are welcome.

Mission

BizTank’s Mission & Vision

We are cultivating a group of driven individuals that see the value in going above and beyond the classroom requirements, and care enough about their future to try something new and to step outside their comfort zones, because as many of us know, that’s really where all the fun is!

A Word

From Our Founder

“As a society, we ask a lot from our high school students. With no real-world experience, we expect them to have life figured out. To know what they want to do as a profession and whether to invest tens of thousands of dollars into education. At BizTank, we give students a chance to have experiences and hear stories direct from industry leaders. The next big idea can come from our community and I am blessed to be able to help cultivate those ideas with our BizKids.”

– Jeff Peterson
