About the business:
PMG Project Management Group offers a combination of professional and construction services. PMG tries to hire and contract with other small companies, as CEO Ben Mendez firmly believes that small businesses must help each other out along the way. With limited funding, there was no budget for marketing, so finding work was an initial challenge for Mendez. But with some help from a Houston-based small business advisory program and some good old-fashioned networking, he was able to get off the ground. Now, his business is growing rapidly.
