Vol Court

The Vol Court Spring 2017 Speaker Series kicks off on February 1, 2017. Vol Court is a six-week entrepreneurial speaker series that culminates in a pitch competition where attendees put what they’ve learned into practice by presenting their business ideas to a panel of successful entrepreneurs for a chance to win $1,500 in cash, office space in the UTRF Business Incubator and various professional services.

Vol Court will meet on Wednesdays beginning February 1. The Feb. 1 meeting will be held in Haslam Business Building 103 from 5:15 - 6:15 p.m. All other meetings are in Haslam Business Building 104 from 5:15 – 6:15 p.m.
