The Vol Court 2014 Speaker Series kicks off on September 23. Vol Court is a five-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 beginning September 23 from 5:15 – 6:15 p.m. in Stokely Management Center, room G2. 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. For planning purposes, we ask that you confirm your attendance in advance by registering here .
