Cisco Systems Provides Smart Business Communications Technology Packages to National 'Make Mine a $Million Business' Program Award Recipients

Cisco Systems is getting involved in the "Make Mine a $Million Business" Program. The program seeks to create 1 million women-owned businesses with annual revenue over a million dollars by 2010.

Cisco has agreed to provide as much as $20,000 in highly secure and flexible network solution packages to each of the 10 award winners from 2006. A few of the products provided will be Cisco Unified CallManager Express, Cisco Unity(R) Express, Cisco integrated services routers, Cisco Catalyst(R) Express 500 Series Switches, and Cisco Unified IP Phones. Service and installation will be performed by area Cisco channel partners.

According to Nell Merlino, founder and CEO of Count Me In: "I know how Cisco helps solve business problems through network technology, so we're thrilled they are a sponsor of the Make Mine a $Million Business program. Part of technology is bringing people together and to look at how to scale as demand for business increases. Cisco makes this kind of growth and excitement possible, particularly because of their generosity as a company."
