Entrepreneurs of the Year

2012 Winners

(from L-R: Barry Gilmore and Adam Brooks)

CPCC established this award to recognize those individuals who implement entrepreneurial activities at the College. As selected by CPCC’s Employee Recognition Committee, this year’s entrepreneurs are Adam Brooks and Barry Gilmore.


Since its inception eight years ago, The Geek Fest has grown to achieve remarkable results in promoting entrepreneurial activities and education at the College. It connects CPCC with external community partners, industry leaders, and other educational institutions while generating a considerable return on investment.


This unique learning event provides access to emerging technologies and career and professional development opportunities for our students, staff, businesses, and the community.


Through their ingenuity, Barry and Adam conceived and nurtured this event, which is the embodiment of the Learning College initiative. They have also devoted countless hours to ensure its ongoing success, and are most deserving of this recognition.
