Paul Rosa graduated from Bloomsburg University in the spring of 2013. He majored in Mass Communications with a concentration in Public Relations.
During his sophomore and junior year, he was a member of Bloomsburg’s varsity baseball team. Paul decided to step away from the baseball field his senior year and planned to focus on his future career. He had a close circle that consisted of professors and advisors that helped him throughout his time at Bloomsburg. They always told him, “Hustle and don’t be afraid to chase growth even if it’s uncomfortable.”
He dedicated his senior year interning at Liberty Mutual and taking extra courses. Paul’s most successful highlight of senior year included winning first place at the Greater Susquehanna Keystone Innovation Zone Business Plan Competition.

After graduation, Paul went straight to New York City. He worked for the Yankees front office for two years. Paul thought he made it and his career was going to be set from there until 2018 came around.
During the year of 2018, Paul decided to take a leap of faith and move out to San Francisco, California. He started working for early-stage tech companies and ended up creating his own business. Today, Paul is now the Co-Founder of GameForm, a real-money mobile platform that attracts thousands of users daily. He is Co-founder alongside his friend from West Chester University.
