The culminating event for the Veterans Florida Entrepreneurship Program hosted by UWF's MVRC was held in the College of Business on Saturday, May 5, 2018.  
 
The Pitch Competition began at 9:00 AM and concluded at 2:15 PM.  All 15 veteran students who presented their pitches  were amazing, amazing making the job for the judges very difficult.
 
The judges were a tremendous asset to this program as they provided great interaction, guidance and recommendations to all the veterans during and after the pitch competition was over.  
 
A hearty Bravo Zulu and thank you to all judges who volunteered their time to be part of this event:
