Friday, February 1, 2013 at 8:00 AM (EST)
The 2013 Southeast Entrepreneurship Conference (SEEC 2013) is a three day conference that will allow students to engage in networking opportunities with students and business professionals from across the nation. The main event of SEEC 2013 is the Spartan Pitch Competition. Students will have 90 seconds to pitch their startup business idea to a panel of judges and will be competing for funding to kick-start their venture. Conference also includes provided meals and social events.
The CEO chapter at the University of Tampa has been working diligently to recruit over 15 speakers from all over the country. Thanks to sponsors like The Coleman Foundation and the Collegiate Entrepreneurs Organization, SEEC has gained credibility and is now a part of a nationally affiliated movement encouraging young entrepreneurs to start their own ventures. SEA (Self-Employment in the Arts) has partnered with SEEC to incorporate an arts component throughout the conference, teaching students how to build a business around their craft.
SEEC is open to all academic majors and community business partners. It is a great opportunity for students who are emerging entrepreneurs, students who already have businesses up and running and businesses that are interested in supporting the development of entrepreneurial students.
