Student Anthony Blackman, pictured at right, was a finalist at the 2011 Launch Pad Elevator Pitch Contest. Contestants must make their pitch – an overview of their business, product, service, or project – in the time span of an elevator ride, less than 90 seconds.
Blackman, a student at the Carrie P. Meek Entrepreneurial Education Center, is the owner of Squeaky Cleaning Services. He is pursuing a college credit certificate in entrepreneurship with the goal of developing business skills to match his passion and determination and says he appreciates the hands-on, inspirational support he has received from his professors.
