In March 2024, PETE achieved an impressive 2nd place victory in the esteemed 2024 Crummer Venture Plan Competition.

The annual event, hosted by the Crummer Graduate School of Business since 2015, stands as Central Florida’s premier business plan and pitch competition for startups. Open to all regionally headquartered companies, the competition provides a platform for teams to vie for funding, exposure, and mentorship in front of top entrepreneurs, leaders, and venture capitalists.

Out of nearly 60 startups, PETE emerged as one of four finalists chosen to pitch in the competition's culminating round. A huge congratulations goes out to our Founder, Jacques Fu, and President, Luis Garcia, for taking home another win for PETE. Their leadership has been instrumental in the company's success, and we're immensely proud to have them leading the team.

We also extend our congratulations to our fellow finalists RoomRite, Silicon Assurance, and the winning startup, FlowIntell, for their innovative contributions. It was inspiring to share the stage with such promising companies. Their creativity and pursuit of innovation show the potential and spirit of Central Florida's entrepreneurs.

The journey at the Crummer Venture Plan Competition has been a remarkable experience for the PETE team, and we're proud of the achievements we've made. Thank you to all those who supported us — from our dedicated team members to our valued partners, mentors, and followers. We hope you continue following PETE's journey as we strive to push the boundaries of innovation in AI-driven learning solutions.
