"A finalist or winning business in this competition defines Resilience – the ability to bend but not break, to weather the storm and come out stronger for it, to thrive in the face of adversity. We believe that there are many more businesses like these are the Commonwealth and hope to have the opportunity to share their stories as well." 
-- Professor Gregory B. Fairchild
