Allegiance Advises Finalist in HCC Business Plan Competition

June 10, 2019 – At Allegiance, we believe in making a difference, together. That’s why we value investing in our community just as much as serving our incredible customers. Coming alongside organizations to promote financial literacy not only helps facilitate that difference in individuals, but better equips them to continue making that difference for years to come.

Allegiance Bank Executive Vice President and Chief SBA Officer Gary Henderson recently had the privilege of doing just that by serving as an advisor for a team in the 2019 Houston Community College Business Plan Competition. One of 60 advisors from the Houston entrepreneurial ecosystem, Gary devoted his time and experience by attending group training sessions with the 25 graduating competition teams. He also delivered one-on-one advising to assist an individual contestant team in refining and polishing their business plan to launch and grow their business.

Gary was proud to advise Rhena Anderson of Hollander Home Healthcare, a business that will provide health services in the home environment. Rhena was one of the top five finalists, and her amazing work and presentation before the judges received Honorable Mention and a cash award of $1,000.

Through training, advising and collaboration with their competition peers, all teams graduate from the HCC Business Plan Competition meeting rigorous competition milestones that are designed to have them come out with stronger business assumptions and written plans; and with improved skills to verbally articulate their business concepts, strategies and plans. It was an honor for Allegiance Bank to participate in this awe-inspiring competition.
