A founder and CEO of his own company… an entrepreneur who has sold six companies… a man who has interest in over 30 different businesses… a person who has traveled to more than 60 countries… a leader who was recently named to the Phoenix Business Journal’s prestigious “Forty Under 40” list… no, these are not the accomplishments of five different people; these achievements all belong to one extraordinary individual.

Aaron Bare (BSBA) is a successful entrepreneur who has accomplished much since graduating with honors from Indiana Tech in 1995. Upon graduation, he began his career at Vanguard Group before going on to earn a Master’s degree from Indiana University and an Executive MBA from Thunderbird School of Global Management. His resume of accomplishments is so impressive that he has been named entrepreneur in residence at Thunderbird, which has the reputation of having one of the top MBA programs in the world. Currently, he serves as CEO of Buzz Mouth, a social media management company that he founded.

Aaron's travels throughout the world have provided him with extensive global leadership and business opportunities. He is a strong proponent for education and firmly believes that his education at Indiana Tech, including a semester at sea, laid the foundation for his many accomplishments and successes.

“Out of all the professors, even at the master’s and MBA levels, I have to say that Dr. Walls was the most instrumental and influential in my success as an entrepreneur," Bare stated. “I’ll always remember that he told me, 'Everything else can be taken away, but your education can never be taken from you.'"

Aaron was recently invited to become a member of the exclusive, invitation-only organization Gen-Next, which is composed of successful individuals with the goal of overcoming generational challenges in three areas: economic growth, education and international security. He was also invited to participate in Google Idea’s Summit Against Violent Extremism (SAVE) in Dublin.

There is so much more to share about this fantastic alum, so be watching for a full-length feature article on Aaron Bare in an upcoming Indiana Tech publication.
