2018 Veterans Florida Statewide Pitch Competition
“Vetrepreneur Battle of the Pitches” at SOFWERX. Our Hillsborough Community College Veterans Florida graduates Adam Luell, Founder of Axon Motor Company came in first place winning $10,000 and our other rock star entrepreneur Felicia Pecora , Founder of the Doer Academy came in third place winning $2,500. Us HCC team members are very PROUD. Veterans DO make outstanding entrepreneurs!
The Veterans Florida Entrepreneurship Program is in it 4th year under a State of Florida grant for any vets or active duty military within the state. Andy Gold, Beth Kerly, Greta Kishbaugh, and me have instructed a bunch of creative and persistent vets over the years. This year we took the state competition against the other 6 universities participating. Kudos to Adam and Felicia.
