He was assigned a semester-long project that was to devise a small business, including a marketing plan. Synthesizing Bowerman's attention to quality running shoes and the burgeoning opinion that high-quality/low cost products could be produced in Japan and shipped to the U.S. for distribution, Knight found his market niche.

Davidson was interested in aviation from early on in his life and in the fifth grade was working in a variety store for a German man named Daniel Ritz.
