After a tight competition that included nearly 300 small business owners, Mazuma USA is thrilled to announce the winner of our first-ever $10K giveaway: Bruce Bassi, founder of TelepsychHealth.
Dr. Bassi started TelepsychHealth in 2018 to improve access to mental health services, providing patients with the resources, support, and help they need when and where they need it. Dr. Bassi’s goal is to improve the patient experience in a continuously changing industry.
“There are a lot of people out there in a lot of pain and suffering, isolated and alone, and they need a lot of help,” Dr. Bassi says. “They don’t want to focus on the challenges of finding a provider and paying for a session. They just want to get better.”
About winning the $10,000 grand prize, Dr. Bassi says, “We will set this money aside in an account to fund services for low income individuals who need care but cannot afford it. Being able to see low income patients will greatly aid our mission of providing highest quality care to those who need it the most.”
The runner up for the competition was Brandon Lunsford, owner of Garden Of Eden Floral and Tea Room. Lunsford says his family is in the business of “delivering smiles” and helping people celebrate memorable moments, and he plans to use his $1,000 prize to expand his business.
Mazuma USA launched their $10K giveaway to bolster small businesses making a positive impact in their community. The top six finalists in the competition were featured on our Keep Going podcast as we celebrated their stories of hard work and success.
More than 10,000 people rallied behind these businesses, casting their votes to determine who should win the grand prize.
“We were overwhelmed with the response and thrilled to see so many people supporting and rallying around small business owners,” says Greg Nielson, Mazuma USA co-founder.
“Thank you to all who participated in our giveaway,” adds Ben Sutton, Mazuma co-founder. “We are excited to announce that we will be launching another $10,000 giveaway this year, and we will continue to celebrate the real-life struggles and successes of entrepreneurs in our Keep Going podcast.”
