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


For the past four 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, participated as a member of the judging panel and has volunteered his services to assist the winners as they launch their products and services.

On October 22, 2020 five contestants presented their ideas to a panel of judges and three winners were selected.  “The contestants did a great job and the presentations were all very interesting. The passion of the presenters for their brands was evident in each presentation.” said Joe Fittante, “The three winning proposals really stood out, I’m excited to see where they take their businesses.”
