Elizabeth Naylor, founder and owner of Ebenezer Wellness, recently was named an awardee of the Women Veteran Entrepreneur Corps’ small business competition. This competition is part of Count Me In for Women’s Economic Independence, the leading national not-for-profit provider of resources, business education and community support for women entrepreneurs.
As a WVEC Awardee, Naylor receives a place in Count Me In’s renowned nine-month Business Accelerator Program, made possible by support from Capital One. The program provides intensive business coaching and education designed to help participating businesses grow their revenues by at least 30 percent and create new jobs within 18 to 36 months. The program will commence for the awardees, totaling 47 (including several from DFW), on Jan. 24 at the Capital One Conference Center. Awardees also receive a one-year legislative membership with Women Impacting Public Policy (WIPP).
In addition, Naylor was one out of three awardees to receive a Jump Start Prize, a $1,000 cash award to use for Ebenezer Wellness’ business needs.
Naylor, who is an applied clinical nutritionist and doctor of science candidate in holistic nutrition, founded Ebenezer Wellness in 2006 as a corporate wellness and private practice specializing in holistic health services focusing on nutrition.
“I’m excited about the opportunity to participate in the Count Me In Business Accelerator Program with this amazing group of women entrepreneurs,” Naylor said. “The focus and accountability is exactly what I need to take my business to the next level. Thank you to Count Me In and Capital One for this valuable opportunity.”
WVEC is an exciting new business growth initiative for women veteran entrepreneurs currently at $50,000 to $150,000 in annual revenues and designed to help them grow their businesses quickly and sustainably to spur local economies and job growth in their communities.
“Our Women Entrepreneur Awardees represent yet another group of women business owners who have the potential to truly impact economic growth in our country,” said Nell Merlino, founder and president of Count Me In. “We look forward to working with this promising group of motivated entrepreneurs as they grow their micro-businesses into thriving enterprises.”
