My name is Jamaal Chinn and I am the co-founder of a start up company in Lincoln, NE called Area402. I am a young entrepreneur that is trying to bring fresh and new ideas to the college town that is Lincoln where the University of Nebraska is located and home to the "Big Red Nation". Out here, the University of Nebraska is everything along with their athletics especially the football team which has a cult-like following. I have never seen a following of women that follow athletics like the Midwestern women of Nebraska of all ages. So I came with the idea of a new line of clothing for women "Cornhusker" or "Husker" fans that is outside of the normal "N" logo that is already a staple in the town. Thus the name "HERSKERS" : which is the woman Cornhusker fan and this would now give them their own identity when it comes to rooting for the hometown crowd. This also will be because the University of Nebraska is entering its first full year in the BIG TEN athletic conference this coming fall so people want something new to go along with this big change.
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
Women of all ages from Nebraska, Women that follow Nebraska Athletics, Univ of Nebraska Students, Faculty, Alumni,
Men giving gifts for the Nebraska woman in their life
Boutiques, Athletic clothing shops
Anybody that has anything to do with Nebraska, the University of Nebraska that are from anywhere.
I don't have a lot of requirements but I don't want to deal with any copyright infringement with the University of Nebraska. The name "HERSKERS" is my own creativity.
The Nebraska colors are RED, white, and also black
Common fan names are "Cornhuskers" "Huskers" "Go Big Red"
Also there is a mascot called Herbie the Husker, maybe you can portray him as a lady version (enclosed is a picture of Herbie)
Keep in mind my most Nebraska woman's shirts are pretty boring and plain, usually just men shirts in women sizes and fits.
Just want new and fresh ideas!!
