ThePinesTimes.com wins first prize in “Shark Tank” Entrepreneur Summit 2014 Competition!
We’re so excited! The Pines Times won the “Shark Tank” Community Entrepreneur competition which was hosted by Moore Forward and Sandhills Community College. The competition has been created to showcase emerging entrepreneurs in Moore County. Each team had 4 minutes to make their pitch to a panel of judges, to think on their feet, answer the judge’s queries and vie for their chance for first and second place cash prizes. It featured fabulous Moore County High School students with exciting and creative entrepreneurial ideas during the morning session. Then after lunch, and an inspiring talk by Larry Caddell, I competed against 5 other product ideas by community members and came out on top! The Pines Times was chosen as The “Shark Tank” Community Winner.
I’m so thankful that my idea for a website that provides a Single Source for Events, Entertainment and Happenings in “The Pines” has been honored with this award. I’ve got some great upcoming ideas for the near future – so please be sure to stay tuned!
