USF’s team, comprised of Michael Anadiotis, Chris Carpenter, Brown Charite, Lazar Anderson, and Mark Lombardi-Nelson, used their entrepreneurial savvy and skills to come out on top!
After a great competition by 26 teams and a final round that consisted of 8 teams from different schools across the country, only one team was able to claim the title of the 2012 CEO Startup Simulation Challenge Champion!
