Nick Bernardo and his brother, Garrett ’15 created NOVUS, a sportswear clothing company, in 2011, “selling tanks and crews to our college team mates for fun.” Nick said he always knew he wanted to have his own business. His management classes and passion for baseball, where he played first base for the Black Bears, first led to the creation of NOVUS. The company sells custom sportswear to teams and organizations. Since their days as students in Orono, the Bernardos have built a company that is based in Albany, NY. Read more about the company at novusclothingcompany.com.
