The winner of the Digital Growth Contest, co-sponsored by Cox Business and Ladies Who Launch, is Gail Ahlers, owner of Pawtucket, RI-based Ahlers Designs. The contest – to support female business owners in several markets throughout the United States – was organized and managed by the Cable & Telecommunications Association for Marketing.

As winner of the Digital Growth Grant in Rhode Island, Ahlers will receive a free bundle of Cox Business services for 12 months. Services include Cox Business Video, Cox Centrex Telephone and Cox Business Internet with PowerBoost, with speeds of 20 Mbps upstream and 4 Mbps downstream.

The Internet-based contest, which began in October 2008, required women business owners to write a brief essay expressing their views on the opportunities, challenges and rewards of entrepreneurship. A number of entries were received in Providence and other participating markets, representing a range of industries including catering, property management, educational consultants, computer services and marketing firms. Judges included representatives from Cox Business, the Rhode Island Small Business Development Center at Johnson & Wales University and Ladies Who Launch who reviewed and scored the entries.
