“I know that our track record has been rock-solid and that our growth plan was strong heading into the finals” Said Sean Casey, vice president of Rotorcorp.  “But, we were competing with the best-of-the-best among our fellow classmates.  It is truly an honor to take this win back to our team in Atlanta.”

Sean also expressed high praise for the Interise Organization, the Georgia SBA leadership, and his Atlanta Emerging Leaders Instructor Russ Young.  “I came into the program not knowing why my company was failing to thrive.
