Madison Long, CEO & Co-Founder, Ckutch
Madison Long is the CEO and co-founder of Ckutch(Campus Concierge) a mobile platform that connects students with side hustles to students looking for affordable services on campus. Madison’s drive for entrepreneurship started day one of Purdue when she joined the Dr. Cornell A. Bell Business Opportunity Program (BOP). This program accelerated her academic career in the Krannert School of Management—putting her on the fast track for landing prestigious internships, winning national pitch competitions, and growing as a leader—all while keeping community and mentorship at the forefront of everything she does.
Madison served as VP and the Doster Leadership Conference Chair for the Krannert School of Management Council; Executive Director for Diversity & Inclusion for Purdue Student Government; and was inducted into the Mortar Board Senior Honor Society for her scholarship, leadership, and service. Prior to graduating, she was named the 2017 Poet’s & Quants Best & Brightest.
Madison began her post-graduation career working in finance at Microsoft, followed by a role with the Sheryl Sandberg & Dave Goldberg Foundation (Lean In), then took the leap to launch Ckutch with her co-founder, fellow Purdue alumna (Computer Science,) and best friend, Simone May. Their mission is to provide a more accessible, safe, and economically empowering opportunity for college students everywhere.
Ckutch (fka "Campus Concierge") provides students a safe & easy way to pursue, market, and grow their side-hustles. Whether it's photography, tutoring, DJ'ing, doing hair, or more, students set their own pricing & schedule, gaining instant access to their biggest customer base—their peers! Ckutch launched at multiple Houston-based universities in the fall of 2021.
