VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) –  A Valdosta engineering company wins thousand of dollars in a competition to help new businesses.

Innovate Engineering won the 2010 Guardian Bank Business Plan Competition. The civil and environmental firm opened in January.

They received a $15,000 check and an assortment of services worth more than $20,000 to enhance and expand their business.

"We're humbled we were chosen out of a great group of competitors and one thing I've said is that winning this validates my decision to start this company. It shows I made the right decision," said Bill Kent, the president of Innovate Engineering Solutions.

The Valdosta Chamber of Commerce helps put on the competition every year. Businesses must have the potential to hire local university or technical college graduates.

Entrants are also offered workshops on developing business plans.
