WHO IS CAM?
A YOUNG, COFFEE LOVING ENTREPRENEUR WHO STRIVES
TO HELP SUPERHEROES LIKE HIM.
Camden, affectionately called Cam, suffers from a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), causing both cognitive and physical delays. Simple tasks, such as tying shoes or holding a pencil are extremely difficult for Cam. As he aged, he became increasingly aware of his shortcomings, and his self-esteem suffered greatly. We started a pop-up style coffee business as a hobby to help him elevate his strengths and to be empowered with the knowledge that he is a person of value who adds value to everyone with whom he interacts.
CAM'S COFFEE CO
FROM POP-UP COFFEE SHOP TO THRIVING SMALL BUSINESS.
We began occasionally setting up a coffee stand, offering people a great cup of coffee made by a super dude. Cam would serve fresh coffee while learning lessons of entrepreneurship, social and relationship skills, math, and the importance of goal setting. To our surprise, Cam enjoyed it so much that we decided to found what Cam’s Coffee Co is today. What started as a weekend pop-up style shop has now grown into a thriving business, providing coffee locally and across the United States
