To much excitement and great applause, the winners of the FastPitch competition were just announced
at this evening’s reception. This competition, a first for the NACCE Conference,
gave student entrepreneurs and College Small Business Center clients the
opportunity to demonstrate the benefits of a community college education and
represent their colleges at our annual conference.
Here are the entrepreneurs who prevailed through two rounds
of short presentations to come out on top. (This competition was generously
sponsored by the John E. & Jeanne T. Hughes Foundation and Catawba Valley
