Student, entrepreneur pitches in at CVEP

From My Desert:
From where Shawn Isaac sits, progress for an economic development agency such as CVEP isn't immediately quantifiable. "It's so macro," the UC Irvine student from Rancho Mirage said. "It's not as easy to measure as saying, 'Oh, CVEP gave this man a fish.'" Isaac, 21, speaks from experience. He is, as some sage executives might say, a California whiz kid. With two patents for a computer chip that Isaac and a business partner invented to make servers run eight times faster, this business economics major doesn't only own and run three companies off his personal laptop. He has rolled up the sleeves of his pin-striped shirt to intern at places such as the Coachella Valley Economic Partnership. "I worked there last summer," he said. He left toting business cards that gave him a fancy title: "Director of small business and entrepreneurship," the card read.
