Golden Girls Network Founder Bonnie Moore of Bowie, Maryland was named a third place finalist today in the StartRight! Business Plan Competition sponsored by Rockville Economic Development and the Maryland Women’s Business Center. The contest aims to identify up-and-coming businesses run by women in Maryland.

“When we help women entrepreneurs develop a business plan that will result in their long-term growth, stability, and financial independence, we all win,” noted Kiesha Haughton Smoots, managing director of the Maryland Women’s Business Center. She added, “We congratulate the StartRight! Business Plan Competition winners, and will continue offering a variety of business support tools to help women entrepreneurs achieve their goals.”

Moore was selected as a finalist from more than 40 StartRight applicants. Her company was one of three finalists involved in the aging services industry.

“Competing in StartRight was a great experience,” said Moore. “I enjoyed sharing information about Golden Girls Network in different ways throughout various stages of the competition and networking with the other competitors. But more importantly, I hope my participation will spread the word about the Golden Girls lifestyle to women in Maryland seeking companionship, security, and an affordable way to live.”

The winners were announced at The Power Conference, where Moore touted copies of her recent book, How to Start a Golden Girls Home.
