Ace Glenn’s entry, “Better Ways to Study, LLC” wowed the judges and took home top honors at the 6th Annual King of the Court quick pitch business competition. His entry was a Flash-based multimedia study guide for students.
Hosted by The Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation located in the College of Business Administration, the competition featured 16 entries that presented their business ideas to a panel of five judges, all of whom were UCF alumni and prominent business leaders in the community.
The King of the Court competition is comprised of two rounds of competition. In both rounds, participants are given 90 seconds to present their business concept and another 90 seconds to address questions raised by the panel of judges. The top four finalists win cash prizes totaling $3000.
