  • Most fish caught over 3 inches
  • Longest bass caught
  • Longest other fish caught
  • Most unusual catch

Veterans Entrepreneur Program

The University of Florida helps disabled veterans become entrepreneurs.

The Veterans Entrepreneurship Program (VEP) provides a rigorous entrepreneurial learning and development opportunity for service disabled veterans and those who have uniquely distinguished themselves in the military. VEP is designed for veterans interested in starting a new venture as a means to financial independence and for veterans who have an existing business for which they would like to increase profits.

Today marked the graduation of the first ever UF VEP class, congratulations to our Founder Raydel Cornelio for the successful completion of the program!

It is also with a heavy heart that we mention the passing of one of the recent graduates Army Veteran James Spoo, may he rest in peace. Our best wishes go out to his friends and family in this time of need.
