- Minneapolis-St. Paul, MN-WI (1888PressRelease) April 26, 2012 - SCORE Minnesota presented the first annual SCORE Minnesota Technology Award at a monthly breakfast meeting on March 21, 2012. The award recognizes a SCORE Minnesota volunteer who has made an outstanding contribution to technology that benefits small businesses.
SCORE volunteer and first recipient, Virgil Dissmeyer, won the award for his extensive involvement in the development of a series of webinars that focus on websites for small businesses. This webinar series, funded by SPEDCO, provides important information and how-to demonstrations to help business owners create or expand their websites.
"Virgil's contributions to the new webinar series allow small-business owners to gain practical information when it fits into their schedule," says Marshall Jones, SCORE Minneapolis Chairman. "Websites are crucial to business success, but many small business owners don't know where to start. These on-demand, prerecorded webinars make gaining or expanding an online presence accessible for small-business owners."
