The Kansas Department of Commerce, Office of Minority & Women Business Development has named MySmartPlans Kansas Women-Owned Business of the Year in the Construction Firm/Business category.

Shelley Armato, CEO of MySmartPlans was honored at the 33rd Annual Minority and Women Business Awards Luncheon Thursday, October 5, 2017 at the Capital Plaza Hotel in Topeka, KS. The luncheon took place during Kansas Minority Enterprise Development (MED) Week, the Department’s annual celebration of minority and women entrepreneurs in Kansas.

“We are quite honored to receive this award,” says Armato. “We are only scratching the surface of how powerful this technology and service can be for the construction world.” Shelley broke the rules when she introduced revolutionary technology into construction sites to increase accountability and reduce chaos.  Her business was started in a garage with $15,000. Today, MySmartPlans manages over $10 billion in project assets in 39 states.

“Minority and women-owned businesses make a significant contribution to the Kansas economy,” said Nick Jordan, Interim Secretary of the Kansas Department of Commerce. “Seven percent of women and five percent of minorities in Kansas describe themselves as self-employed which, when taken together, equals a substantial portion of our local-owned businesses and employers.
