Young Entrepreneurs Win Big in Our Own Backyard

These Devon Prep School students are already successful businessmen!

May 16, 2018

The company is called Rex Riccardi.  It sells pocket squares for the dapper gentlemen among us, with 10% of all sales going towards cancer research.

This company is the brainchild of Chris Muth and Ryan Klauder from Devon Preparatory School, who just won the National Young Entrepreneurs Award for its creation.  Note "National"...this was a country-wide contrest, and these hometown boys won it all.

They started their company while enrolled in the Philadelphia chapter of the Young Entrepreneurs Academy.  The charitable portion of their sales is donated to Alex's Lemonade Stand, a poingant choice given that Chris, at 17, is a cancer survivor.  In fact, they began their conpany selling pocket squares designed with artwork from former NFL player Garo Yepremian, who passed away from cancer in 2015.

We had them in the studio to talk about the whirlwind experience, and were blown away by their manturity, their business plan, and their successes to date.
