Fall 2014 Entrepreneurial Celebration was a great event for students and community!
The Center for Entrepreneurial and Business Excellence (CEBE) hosted the 18th Entrepreneurial Celebration on December 2nd.  Pinnacle Advisory Group sponsored the event. Seventeen students from ENTR-101, Entrepreneurship and Creativity, shared their “Pinnacle Pitch” in hopes of receiving the “Pinnacle Entrepreneur Prize”. The students presented their business ideas to an audience of the college and business community, family members, and peers. First and second place students were awarded the Pinnacle Entrepreneur Prize which will assist them in developing their business idea and/or for tuition next semester. In addition, third prize was provided by the CEBE. First place went to Aleksander Petrov for his business idea, Pheidi, which is a smart phone workout application for runners and cyclists, which connects athletes for the purposes of competing and accountability. Second place went to Glenn Lucas for his business, Third Day Vineyards, which provides hands-on winemaking experience for the public, starting with choosing the grapes from the vineyard. Elisa Trojillo received 3rd place for Fret It Up, a guitar with illuminating fret lights and other learning assistance features that make learning and playing the guitar easier. Mark your calendars NOW for the Spring Celebration - MAY 5, 2015.
