From Cardiology Nurse to Multi-Million Dollar Entrepreneur

EPreward & Medical Materials, Steve Miller

Title / Role: CEO
Formed in: 2003
How SCORE helped.

Steve Miller was at a crossroads. On the one hand, he was a very talented, hardworking cardiology nurse, and on the other hand, he had observed something, and it was bugging him. He had this idea……

Steve wound up doing what hundreds of thousands of people do every year when they have an idea; they come to SCORE. At SCORE Steve met Herb Douglas, a very talented former business executive-turned-volunteer Counselor. And the journey from working as a nurse in a hospital to operating a multi-million dollar business began. Steve had realized there were a variety of ways to recycle certain used medical devices, which were discarded after a single use. The questions were: how does one acquire these devices, in what ways could they be recycled, who are the buyers, and who are the competition.

All of those questions, and many, many more, were answered and resolved as time went by and several SCORE mentors added their business talents to the emerging Business Plan.

Today Steve no longer works in a hospital, but is the CEO of a prosperous business, doing millions of dollars of business around the world. But he’d be the first one to tell you he could never have done it by himself.

What would you tell a fellow business owner about SCORE?

“An idea is just the beginning. You need the business skills and experience of the SCORE Counselors to turn your idea into a profitable business. I will never forget all SCORE did for me, and it was free! Let them help you!”
