VirsaQuest was founded and is led by Henry Westlind, a seasoned entrepreneur and passionate water sports enthusiast. Henry's entrepreneurial journey began in elementary school with the "School Store." His entrepreneurial spirit continued through middle and high school with a neighborhood lawn mowing business, achieving a client list of 35+ active accounts. Henry hired and trained staff, invested in new equipment, and bartered for company branding and marketing materials. In 2019, before attending Northern Michigan University (NMU), he sold the client list of his successful business. At NMU, Henry pursued a degree in Entrepreneurship, excelling academically and as captain of the NMU Sailing Team. He also worked as a Student Project Manager at Invent@NMU, the Idea Incubator associated with the university, honing his project management and innovation skills. After graduating in 2023, Henry worked as a contracted Service Provider for Innovate Marquette SmartZone, collaborating with clients in Outdoor Innovation, Sustainable Technology, and Creative Technology sectors.
