George Mason University’s vision for creating an entrepreneurship program for immigrants and refugees “connected the dots” of Sumeet Shrivastava’s history, beginning with his family’s emigration from Bihar, India, in the 1970s so his father, Satyendra Shrivastava, could earn a master’s degree.

“I grew up watching all that happening and realizing that even if people have good intent, they still need mentors, they still need to understand the basics, especially immigrants … or refugees who are newer to the country that don’t always have a feel for how does it work here,” says Sumeet Shrivastava, a George Mason alumnus and former president and CEO of Array Information Technologies, Inc. in Fairfax.

Shrivastava made a $1.5 million gift to George Mason University that led to the September 2023 launch of the Shrivastava Family Refugee and Immigrant Success through Entrepreneurship (RISE) program at George Mason’s Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship (CIE).

Last week we celebrated the renaming of the School of Business in honor of Donald G. Costello!

Mr. Donald G. Costello was a renowned businessman in Northern Virginia who supported the ideals of student success, entrepreneurship, and economic development. Through this $50 million planned gift to George Mason University —the largest school naming gift in the 51-year history of our Northern Virginia-based university—the newly named George Mason University - Costello College of Business is extending the legacy of this forward-thinking entrepreneur whose creativity, hard work, and determination changed the lives of people around him.

A warm Mason thank you to all that came out to celebrate this monumental moment for us. Costello means business.
