All the category winners will now enter a second round from which one overall winner will be chosen by a further panel of judges. The overall winner will then be announced at the 2014 Coastal Entrepreneur Awards Breakfast on May 22 at UNCW’s Burney Center.

All category winners will be honored as well.
