Several students are a bit closer to their entrepreneurial goals thanks to participation in Keiser University’s Seahawk Tank Pitch Contest. The competition provides coeds the opportunity to see their business goals and inventions come to life by providing the opportunity to present their ideas to a panel of industry judges in hopes of winning cash prizes.

 

Led by Professor George Stamas, the third annual event held at Keiser University’s Flagship campus welcomed eight budding entrepreneurs from several Keiser University campuses along with Ross MacPherson, last year’s ‘Cricket Juice’ winner.
