Aventure to Judge 2018 Atlanta Metro Export Challenge

ATLANTA, USA – Aventure Aviation has been invited to be a panel judge of the 2018 Atlanta Metro Export Challenge, a JPMorgan Chase-powered grant program created to support the exporting programs of metro Atlanta companies.

Talha Faruqi, Aventure’s Vice President of Operations, will represent Aventure to help determine the winner in this “Shark Tank”-style pitch competition. The first round of judging will take place on February 19 and 20, with the final round taking place March 28.

Aventure Aviation placed first in the 2016 Metro Export Challenge, and received a $20,000 prize. The challenge had an initial group of 35 grant recipients, who each received $5,000. They were narrowed down to five finalists after their pitches were judged. The top three winners were selected through a combination of the judges’ decisions and public voting.
