The road less traveled

Henry Schuck '09 opened his bedroom door and padded down the hallway of the two-story home in the Short North Arts District. He followed the telephone lines and wires snaking through the house to the master bedroom, where a handful of college students were busy starting their work day at the worldwide headquarters of DiscoverOrg. Two more employees camped out at the kitchen table.

Schuck, senior vice president and general counsel for DiscoverOrg, has watched the company he helped found in 2007 grow from seven employees to 50 and its revenues skyrocket from $172,000 in 2007 to $2.8 million in 2010. The company is on track to hit $5 million this year, Schuck said.
