As some of you may have seen from the on-line voting period last month, Mark Mhley recently won a competition for startup funds for his new business venture, Re4ormed. Mark was awarded the grand prize ($15,000) by the StreetShares Foundation for their Veteran Small Business Award in Orlando after competing with over 100 contestants. In addition to the cash prize, Mark also won a year of mentorship from the Boston Beer Team, including a one-on-one coaching session with Jim Koch, the CEO and Brewer of Samuel Adams beer. Continuing the legacy of ’96ers who have left active duty and are poised to make their mark in the business world, Mark has created a concept that will have a tangible, lasting effect on all of us here in the Chesapeake Bay area. We are all looking forward to following your venture. BZ!
