Skill Capped Wins Expand Contest, $35,000

Skill Capped, a group of three Virginia Tech students, won the $35,000 top prize (cash and services) in the Roanoke Regional Entrepreneur Center’s Expand contest. The students will be given advertising and business coaching as part of their prize.

The contest drew a surprisingly large field and was pared to 20, then five before the selection was made at a final Super Synergy conference in Roanoke. The winning team members are Jeff Brabant, Jordan Garcia and Cel Arrington, all Roanokers who put together an online site that gives “World of Warcraft” players tips via video. They have 100,000 subscribers who pay a monthly fee.
