Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) September 07, 2014
McNeely Technology Solutions President, Mary Elizabeth McNeely, along with five other expansion-minded Women’s Business Enterprises (WBE) is a recipient of this year’s Lillie R. Knox Investing for Growth award, presented by the Women’s Business Council - Southwest (WBCS). The five businesses will receive a cash grant each to be used to advance their businesses.
The awards were presented at the Lillie R. Knox Memorial luncheon during the WBCS Annual Harvesting Partnerships event on September 4 at the Hyatt Regency DFW Airport Hotel.
The winning companies were selected based on how they would use the funds to help take their businesses to the next level, as well as their involvement in WBCS.
The Lillie Knox Investing for Growth award began in 2005. WBCS established the award as a tribute and memorial to founding member Lillie Knox. Lillie passed away in November, 2003, after a long and courageous battle with cancer. The award is an annual cash award, open to a certified woman-owned WBCS member, to fund a critical growth or business development need.
"Each of these businesses is indicative of the type of successful WBEs that Lillie Knox sought to develop," said Debbie Hurst, president of the Women’s Business Council - Southwest. "This award will help take these businesses to the next level of success."
