Small Business Champions

We were delighted to learn today that Prisere LLC has been selected as one of the winners of the 2015 American Small Business Championship. The program is sponsored by SCORE (the Service Corps of Retired Executives) and Sam’s Club, the membership club for the small business community. Sam’s Club, together with its corporate parent, Wal-Mart, distinguished itself not only in supporting small businesses, but in supporting disaster-affected communities. The superior logistics and advance planning for which Wal-Mart is known enable the local stores and clubs to provide urgently needed supplies even in the most challenging of circumstances. Wal-Mart and Sam’s Club were particularly impressive for their resilience and support of local communities following Hurricane Katrina.

Each of the “Small Business Champions” will receive a $1,000 Sam’s Club gift card to purchase supplies for their business, an all-expense-paid trip to one of five SCORE regional small business training events, SCORE mentoring for one year and a year of public relations support to showcase the accomplishments of the business. SCORE mentors are seasoned executives with proven track records in growing businesses. We are particularly grateful for the resources provided by SCORE and Sam’s Club to enable Prisere’s growth and look forward to meeting the other winning small businesses.
