About Nicholas Kovacevich
Nick Kovacevich is a former college athlete who now excels at the entrepreneurship game. After graduating summa cum laude from Southwest Baptist University in 2009, Kovacevich connected with former High School teammate and fellow entrepreneur, Dallas Imbimbo. After buying into Imbimbo’s PackMyDorm, a college moving and storage solutions company he had began in his dorm room, Kovacevich helped secure an exit by selling to a California-based moving company. The pair then moved to Southern California to embark on the next venture, Kush Bottles, a packaging solutions company targeting the emerging legal cannabis industry. In 2012, the pair was introduced to Steve Jesson, who needed some work space to launch a new venture that sourced construction equipment rentals from rental yards nationwide, all under one roof. The Travelocity-like venture grew from 2 employees to 25 just over a year later and Dallas Imbimbo left to run the re-branded BigRentz.com in it’s new Irvine headquarters. Kovacevich took the helm as CEO at Kush Bottles shortly afterward and has been instrumental in the company’s rapid growth, which includes doubling in revenue from 2014 to 2015. Kovacevich still sits on the board at BigRentz.com, a company of over 120+ employees that was voted the fastest growing private company in Orange County by the OC Business Journal last year.
Today Kovacevich runs Kush Bottles and is considered an expert in the legal marijuana industry. He received an Excellence in Entrepreneurship award in 2015 for his innovation in the compliant marijuana packaging industry. A true entrepreneur, Kovacevich is passionate about all things business from founding successful companies in various spaces to investing and managing residential and commercial real estate to consulting and mentoring.
