On September 19, 2014 the Florida SBDC hosted a Distinguished Entrepreneur Appreciation Breakfast at the Lutgert College of Business. Provost, Dr. Toll and Dean, Dr. Beatty in addition to event judges, nominees, winners, and sponsors attended to discuss planning for the 2015 awards ceremony and the nomination process. The breakfast provided a moment of time to evaluate the importance of the event including impact of small businesses in our community and how the award serves as an inspiration to aspiring entrepreneurial students. The Florida SBDC expresses its sincerest gratitude to FGCU, sponsors, judges, and the community for the continued support of the event.
