Top 100 Minority Businesses Awarded

China Press, Posted: Nov 11, 2008

WASHINGTON D.C. Awards for the top 100 businesses founded and owned by people from ethnic communities was held last Thursday at the University of Maryland University College.

The China Press reports that more than 1,400 companies joined the competition. A seven-member judging committee from the Maryland Governors Office selected the top 100, five of which were founded and owned by Chinese immigrants. Gene Chu, president of Granite America, LLC, only had $300 when he immigrated from China. He worked as a waiter, a pizza deliverer and a car salesman while he attended graduate school. Before starting his own company, Chu worked as financial director for the Forbes Top 500 companies.
