Congratulations to the seven EITs who pitched their business idea to expert judges on July 21 and received Certificates of Entrepreneurship from UW-Madison Extension Dean Karl Martin. The class chose EIT Smiling Shontina to speak at the ceremony. She urged the group to “surround yourself with those focused on your future.” It is wonderful to be a part of your personal and business growth. We are proud of you!
Our heartfelt gratitude goes to the 18 business coaches who judged the pitches and gave motivational feedback. We couldn’t do this without you!
These EITs are now alumni in the program and will continue to participate in community events and the Accelerator if they choose to continue to a more advanced business planning stage.
