NADCO Congratulates CEO Barbara A. Vohryzek on State Star Award
State Star | 8 Sept 2015
Congratulations to Barbara A. Vohryzek, NADCO's President and CEO, on receiving a State Star for her efforts infusing capital into the California Small Business economy via the SBDC network. During her time at the Governor of California's office, Vohryzek was essential in securing $2 million in state funds to create a capital infusion competitive grant program for the SBDC network. In the first three quarters of the awardee SBDCs' capital infusion activities, they have helped California small businesses secure nearly $160 million in new capital. This $2 million represented the beginning of renewed State of California funding for the SBDC network. Vohryzek and other State Star winners were invited on a tour of CA-based tech companies Google, Facebook, and Intuit. View the album to see photos from her tour. You may notice recognizable faces, such as Sheryl Sandberg of Facebook. We're proud to have a fearless leader like B. Congratulations on the well-deserved honor! View the album.
