A SI360 alum and recent graduate from Georgetown University, Jaclyn DiGregorio runs CuspIt, a business that provides young women in colleges and corporate organizations with tools and knowledge on nutrition, fitness and wellness to promote confidence and wellbeing.
During Jaclyn’s first two years of college, she struggled to adapt and fit in the college environment. She was the only student from her high school attending Georgetown University. She had gained weight, and lost confidence, happiness, passion and her sense of self-worth during this time. This is when she realized that millions of young women across the country were struggling with the same issues she struggled with. She also noticed that there were no resources to teach these women how to lead a healthier and more confident life at such a critical time for self-growth.
During her senior year, she decided to start CuspIt. “The CuspIt app is a young woman’s one-stop shop for managing wellness,” says Jaclyn. Starting CuspIt caused her to truly take care of all aspects of her physical and mental wellbeing, and through this, she found her passions: running a marathon, starting a business, and publishing her first book, The Cusp Method.
Jaclyn’s book, The Cusp Method, became an Amazon Bestseller and #1 new release in its category. Cusp stands for Concentrate, Understand, Supplement, and Portion. Jaclyn raised $20,000 on Kickstarter and was awarded $15,000 at Georgetown University for winning the Leonsis Family Entrepreneurship Prize.
Jaclyn currently teaches wellness workshops at over 75 campuses across the country. She hosts her wellness workshop at orientation programs, student-run clubs, on-campus conferences and more. Since its launch, CuspIt has grown immensely, and she is continuously updating their app according to their customers’ needs. Jaclyn is currently focused on decreasing health issues related to low-confidence, which could be originated in high school or other early stages in the formative years of young women.
The SI360 connection
SI360 was Jaclyn’s first taste of entrepreneurship at Georgetown University. She learned so much from SI360 that she used her senior year; all the applicable tools she possessed from the program helped her on her entrepreneurial journey.
Hearing from entrepreneurs in the program made her see entrepreneurship from a more realistic and refreshing perspective. She sees businesses of the future working towards social good and acknowledges their potential to change the world. SI360 helped her combine entrepreneurship and wellness to make a difference in young women’s lives.
