Mr. Glenn P. Ladwig, Partner of the Firm, Serves as Judge for Startup Quest’s Entrepreneur Program

Mr. Ladwig participated as a volunteer judge in Startup Quest, a program designed to provide unemployed and underemployed degree-holding professionals with the training and skills needed to become successful entrepreneurs. Mr. Ladwig and other leaders from the business community evaluated business plans and investor pitches. Gainesville Mayor Ed Braddy announced the winners at the Awards Presentation. Originally launched in Gainesville as a pilot program of CareerSource North Central Florida, Startup Quest has grown into a nationally recognized entrepreneurship-training program funded by a $12 million U.S. Department of Labor grant that connects teams of qualified participants with successful CEOs and entrepreneurs to learn the steps needed to transform an invention from Florida’s universities and NASA into a product for the marketplace.
