The Vol Court Spring 2015 Speaker Series kicks off on February 17. Vol Court is a six-week entrepreneurial speaker series that culminates in a pitch competition where attendees put what they’ve learned into practice by presenting their business ideas to a panel of successful entrepreneurs for a chance to win $1,000 in cash, office space in the UTRF Business Incubator and various professional services.
Vol Court meets every Tuesday (except Spring Break) beginning February 17 from 5:15 – 6:15 p.m. in Haslam Business Building, room 104. This series (including the pitch competition) is open to students, faculty, staff and members of the community. Vol Court is a terrific way to explore key aspects of starting a business, network with other like-minded individuals and pitch your idea for cash prizes and professional services.
There is no cost to attend this series, and refreshments will be served.
