CCHS Spotlight – Corde Brown and Goated


Olivia Kucsik

Corde Brown, a junior at Capital City High School is the owner of Goated. Today, he is the second Student Spotlight in our Student Owned Business series.

How did Goated get started?
“I came up with the idea, and with the support from my mom, we made the design and went from there.”

What service(s) or product(s) do you offer/manufacture?
“Shirts, hoodies, crew necks.”

What was your mission at the outset?
“To be ‘Goated’ means to become the best at whatever you do – the definition is up to the individual. Personally, I am ‘Goated’ through playing basketball and taking pride in CCHS.”

How does that motivate you?
“Being able to empower people, giving other the motivation to push through to an additional rep in the gym or completing assignment to feel accomplishment of their actions.”

How do you generate new ideas?
“Through the world around me, what ever sparks inspiration in the moment. It makes me feel good knowing that I have the support of my peers.”

To what do you attribute your success?
“The positive message behind my brand.”

How do you intend to keep that success going on a long term scale?
“After high school, I intend to go to college, play basketball and maybe major in computer science. So I will look at the time and resources, and maybe Goated will be a part of that.”
