    Award Recognizes Entrepreneurial Excellence in the Consumer and Technology Services Category announced today that Founder and CEO Kwame Kuadey has received the Ernest & Young 2014 Entrepreneur of the Year™ Award in Consumer and Technology Services category in Maryland. The eight Maryland winners were selected by a panel of independent judges and honored at the annual black-tie event held on June 12th at the Hilton in Baltimore. The EY awards program recognizes high-growth entrepreneurs who demonstrate excellence and success in financial performance, innovation and personal commitment to their business and local community.

    “This is truly an honor,” said Kuadey. ” To have my hardwork and efforts as an entrepreneur validated with such a prestigious award is a moment I will cherish forever.”

    Now in its 28th year, the program has honored the inspirational leadership of such entrepreneurs as Howard Schultz of Starbucks Coffee Company, Pierre Omidyar of eBay, Inc., and Mindy Grossman of HSN. Recent US national winners include Reid Hoffman and Jeff Weiner of LinkedIn; Hamdi Ulukaya, founder of Chobani; and 2013 winner Hamid Moghadam, CEO and Chairman of Prologis.

    As a Maryland award winner, Kwame Kuadey is now eligible for consideration for the Entrepreneur Of The Year 2014 national program. Award winners in several national categories, as well as the Entrepreneur Of The Year National Overall Award winner, will be announced at the annual awards gala in Palm Springs, California, on November 15, 2014. The awards are the culminating event of the EY Strategic Growth Forum®, the nation’s most prestigious gathering of high-growth, market-leading companies.

  • Heath Care Deals: 3 Alternatives to Pain Medication

    Americans love their pills too much.

    The next time you feel aches and pains, think natural. Your body will thank you.

    Here are our top 3 recommendations:


    While yoga is not an immediate fix for unexpected pain like headaches or pulled muscles, it has been shown to be very beneficial for people who suffer from chronic pain. It provides a gentle opportunity for movement without putting undue stress on sensitive joints. Yoga can also help realign poor posture and release muscle tension, which are two known factors in chronic pain.

    It may take a week or two before the effects of doing yoga are fully visible, but adding yoga to a daily exercise routine can help to lessen chronic pain and prevent future flare-ups. People who regularly practice yoga may find themselves suffering from fewer headaches and less back and neck pain than beforehand. Pain is often exacerbated by the presence of mental and physical stress, so using yoga to relieve that stress can greatly reduce the pain as well.
