During his junior year of high school, Eric Simons founded ClassConnect. After graduating in 2010, he moved to California to work on the company full-time. Not too long after moving to the California, the original seed funding ran out, and Eric found himself without a place to live. Instead of moving back to Illinois, Eric decided to keep working, and sleeping, in AOL’s offices. A few months later, he was caught by an AOL security guard, but still didn’t want to pack up and go home. He raised more funding for the company, found a place to live, and has since hired five employees.
