Valdosta - A new business in Valdosta just received the extra boost they need to open their doors downtown.

Azalea Health Innovations just won the Guardian Bank Business Plan Competition.

The Bank and Chamber of Commerce presented the small business with $15,000 to help them get the company off the ground and thousands more in advertising to keep it going.

"We do it to try and promote economic growth in the area and growth per capital income and try to retain our college and technical college graduates," says Bank Vice President Parrish Clark.

"We are all VSU graduates and we know how hard it is to find jobs without experience so we were already looking to help students anyway," adds Azalea Health CFO Doug Swords.

Azalea Health beat out 17 other companies for the grand prize.

Guardian Bank says they've signed on for four more years of the competition.
