Chris Jacobs ’10 participated in the 2010 Summer Venture Program and spent the summer growing his venture, Honest Discounts. Honest Discounts provides Americans with a completely free discount prescription card program which saves them 10%–75% on all generic and brand name prescription medications not covered by their health insurance. The card program has no age, income, gender, or any other qualification requirements and no activation process. Anyone in the country can use this completely free product while sharing it with friends, family, and co-workers.

Jacobs shares that the Summer Venture Program was a critical time for him and the business. During the ten weeks of the program he identified the market strategy, developed his business model and executed on it. Honest Discounts currently partners with major pharmaceutical companies, doctors, small businesses, and non-profits all over the country.
