"The Tayloe Murphy Resilience Award brought exposure to our business and community. It expanded our network and opened the door to one of the best business schools in the country. But more than that. When entrepreneurs aren't funded, they run on emotion. It gave us a boost at a critical time and we owe them a great deal. We are extremely proud of this Tayloe Murphy Resilience Award."

-- Tom Bandy, Owner of BandyWorks, 2010 Resilience Award winner
