Yesterday, SCORE, mentors to America’s small businesses, recognized three small business owners for their extraordinary entrepreneurial success, naming them Grand Champions of the 2018 American Small Business Championship (ASBC). Now in its fifth year, the ASBC is a national competition celebrating U.S. entrepreneurship and its positive impact on the economy, and offering resources for continued business growth. This year, the championship was made possible with a generous grant from Sam’s Club.

Three small businesses took the top honors, each winning $15,000 to help grow their businesses:

  • The Grindhouse Radio (GHR) – An internationally-syndicated, award-winning pop culture talk radio series run by media personality Brimstone and partners Kim Adragna and Steve Zambito of N.Y., GHR has more than 3.5 million weekly listeners worldwide, and has earned regular spots in the iTunes Top 20 Best Comedic Podcasts rankings worldwide.
  • My "Buddy" TowelDesigned by Angelyn Myers, an Oklahoma mom of six, this combination towel and onesie is designed to save busy parents time, stress and extra laundry when drying their children off after a bath or the pool.
  • Pip & Grow – Founded on the philosophy that businesses have a responsibility to positively improve the lives of workers, customers and the planet, company founders Lauren Hughey, Kate Compton Barr and Amber Kroeker created this eco-friendly, portable bassinet to reduce the risk of SIDS. Pip & Grow is also the 2018 SCORE Awards winner for Outstanding Retail Small Business.

In March of this year, 102 small businesses from 48 states, Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia were named ASBC finalists and awarded an all-expenses-paid trip to a training and networking event in Reno, N.V., as well as mentoring from small business experts at SCORE. After an in-depth judging process, a panel of small business experts selected the three Grand Champions to receive grand prizes of $15,000 each based on how effectively they utilized the initial prizes to grow their business.

"For five years running, the American Small Business Championship has been an unparalleled program driving small business growth and sustainability across the U.S. We are so proud of these three exceptionally-accomplished and hardworking Grand Champions, each of whom embody a diverse snapshot of the American small business landscape," said Resa Kierstein, vice president of development for SCORE.

The 2017 ASBC Grand Champions were Competitive Edge Athletic Performance Center, Grillo Essentials and One Community Auto.
