Silver Spring counseling service wins $5,000 in business-plan competition (via Washington Post)
Hetty Irmer of Four Corners Counseling was awarded the grand prize in our StartRight! 2015 Women’s Business Plan Competition.
“When I attended the Power Conference luncheon last year, and watched the StartRight! winners being announced, I thought to myself, ‘Hey, they are not much different than me—maybe I could enter the competition next year!’” said Irmer. Reflecting on her decision, Irmer added, “This process has provided a structured opportunity to learn new skills in a supportive environment, and has made me think about business in a new way.”
Since winning our competition, Irmer has gone from a sole proprietor to having two associates, and will open her second office in Washington, DC in June 2016.
