HOUSTON, TX - October 3, 2013 - Dewmar International BMC, Inc. (OTCQB: DEWM) (OTCBB: DEWM) ("Dewmar" or "the Company") (http://www.dewmarinternational.com/investor/), announced today that the Company's CEO, Dr. Marco Moran, has completed the U.S. Small Business Administration's (SBA) 2013 Emerging Leaders Initiative, as of Tuesday, October 1, 2013. "Beginning back in April of this year, I was selected as one of the emerging business leaders by the SBA to participate in the program," stated Dr. Moran. "For the last six months, I've participated in a curriculum heavy program, aimed at increasing our business exposure on a national and international basis. I've had the opportunity to work with some of the best minds in strategic management consulting, as well as work with other entrepreneurs on expanding our business plan and our presence in the local community. This was an incredible program which has already helped our profitability and bottom line, assisting us to seek bigger and better opportunities."
The Emerging Leaders initiative has been a catalyst for expanding small business opportunities in both urban and Native American communities. "Emerging Leaders has a proven track record of helping small businesses in underserved communities," said SBA Administrator Karen Mills. "Graduates of the program have increased their revenue, created jobs and helped drive local economic growth in their communities." Sixty-seven percent of the Emerging Leaders surveyed, reported increased revenue from this opportunity, while 75 percent of those surveyed reported maintaining or creating new jobs in their communities. Some participants also reported having secured more than $26 million in new financing for their businesses and as a result of the program, nearly half of the initiative graduates reported securing federal, state and local contracts, worth more than $330 Million.
Dr. Moran concluded, "Utilizing our new resources, contacts and partnerships, we have great plans for Dewmar throughout this final Quarter of 2013 and throughout 2014. I personally look forward to implementing the lessons learned during this program to achieve a multitude of sustainable growth goals."
