The Apex Center for Entrepreneurs organized a variety of programs aimed at helping budding entrepreneurs thrive.
Student recipients of seed money from Kickstart VT pose with their “checks” and some of the Apex Center faculty. Kickstart VT provides early-stage student teams with seed grants and guidance from proven entrepreneurs throughout the semester. The program culminates in a campus-wide "Entrepreneur Challenge" each spring.From left, back row: David Townsend, Puneet Yadav, Glenn Feit, Derick Maggard, Mattia Forgiarni, Alex Seidenberg, Chapman Pendery, Howard Haines, Dillon Lopynski; front row: Danielle Jeffers, Maria Jernigan, Sean Collins.
