The Augustana Web Guild was founded in the spring of 1997 by a group of Augustana College students. Originally chartered as a mere student organization, the Guild has grown rapidly into a full model corporation.
Under the careful superivison of Augustana College's Director of Marketing, the students set out to explore the career field offered by the rapidly developing world wide web. That core of founding students was responsible largely for past incarnation of Augustana College's web site , which has been ranked among the finest higher education web sites in the United States.
In the spring of 2000 the founding members of the Web Guild graduated, turning the leadership of the organization over to a new generation of talented young web designers. Shortly thereafter the new leaders prepared to move the guild from a mere web design firm to a full fledged web portal.
The Augustana Web Guild also started an endowed scholarship at Augustana College. The Entrepreneurial Scholarship has been helping support Augustana entrepreneurial student since 2009.
