Joe Fittante on Panel in Scott County’s 7th Annual FAST-TRACK Challenge for Start-Ups


For the past several years, Scott County entrepreneurs have participated in an annual FAST-TRACK Business Challenge where they compete to win start-up cash and professional business services designed to fast-track start-up and first-stage businesses. Throughout the FAST-TRACK competition process, contestants are given an opportunity to fine-tune their business plans, prepare a pitch and connect with industry leaders.

This year, Joe Fittante, Chair of Larkin Hoffman’s Corporate Practice Group, continued his support of the group and returned as a member of the judging panel at the 7th Annual Fast-Track Challenge.  Joe has also volunteered his services to assist the winners as they launch their products and services.

Larkin Hoffman would like to offer congratulations to Accelerated Care Solutions for coming in first place at the event. We also want to recognize the exceptional pitches from Uzobi Inc, Written Hugs Designs, and JAS Monitoring.
