Keiser University SEAHAWK TANK Pitch Contest Supports Budding Entrepreneurs
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.
