Rockville names business plan winners
Rockville Economic Development Inc. announced last week that four companies have won its seventh annual Women’s Business Plan Competition, open to businesses that are at least 51 percent women-owned and no more than two years old.
Selected from 53 applicants was grand prize winner Carol Espy-Wilson of OmniSpeech in College Park, which offers a technology that reduces background noise on cellphones. Second place went to Barbara Haupt and Elissa Leif, who provide Web video marketing solutions at Silver Spring’s MiniMatters, and third place to Richelle Burnett, who runs Madison Assessment in Washington, which offers computer-based assessment tests licensed from James Madison University. A new judges’ choice prize went to Laura Levengard and Beth Novick, who founded Gold Star Bakers in Silver Spring.
