Also in attendance from Encore was Brenda Grogan, Director of Equities.

One of the highlights of the conference was the ‘Entrepreneurial Idol’ pitch competition. Celebrity judges like Emmitt Smith, NFL Hall of Famer and former Dallas Cowboys running back, Mahesh Shetty, CFO of Encore Enterprises, and Fred Chanslor, of the Stonehaven Group took the event to a whole new level with their interactivity and engagement in the competition.
