Valerie Sheehan, an active member of the entrepreneurial community in Gainesville and student at the Warrington College of Business Administration will be graduating this spring after making a serious impact on her University.

Sheehan discovered early in her academic career that she suffered from learning disabilities and has worked tirelessly to overcome these challenges. A non-traditional student, Sheehan transferred into UF after working in Tampa for an investment banking firm.

As president of the Entrepreneurship Club at UF, Sheehan coordinated 27 events in 16 weeks and single handedly raised $15,800 for the 4th Annual Venture Pitch Competition.

Her devotion to the University of Florida and the Warrington College of Business Administration has helped the student/entrepreneur community grow in Gainesville. This can be seen by the over 10 startups that have been formed as a direct result of her work.

Sheehan works as an event coordinator at the Florida Innovation Hub helping the program grow by planning events to build a stronger ecosystem of innovation within the incubator, strengthening partnerships with representatives at Microsoft and helps provide education, training and networking opportunities for the tenants in the hub.
