New Scooters 4 Less

Collin has put together a laser-focused team of dedicated and caring individuals who support Greater Gainesville’s scooter riders, opened an additional NS4L location, sold his Gulejo coffee company, served on the Kids Kicking Cancer Advisory Board, was a Gainesville Area Chamber Diplomat, facilitated CEO roundtables and is currently on the editorial board for  Business in the Heart of Florida.





Greatest IMPACT
Collin says his greatest accomplishment was starting a family with his beloved wife, Shannon.

IMPACT Passion
Collin is driven by his faith. He feels that there is something very special about starting with nothing and creating a driving force in the community that impacts the lives of so many. Collin says that God uses him and his business to reach others. He feels people tend to obsess over money and things that don’t matter since we leave it all behind when we go. He wants to work on what he would like to leave behind: a lasting positive impact on people’s lives.

IMPACT Expectations
The way Gainesville businesses come together to support each other fascinates Collin. He loves the energy behind all the startups and the move the community is making toward growth and future business evolution.

Surprise IMPACT
The busiest day of the year for Collin’s business is UF’s first day of school every August. Collin and Shannon have somehow had both their sons, Schaefer and Maddox, born in that exact week four years apart!
