SBA Looking For Products That Empower Women Via Its InnovateHER Business Challenge
Got an idea that will empower women? The Small Business Administration wants to hear from you. The SBA has launched the InnovateHER Business Challenge to help promote Innovations that empower women’s lives.
“The landscape of the U.S. economy has evolved drastically during the last 50 years, and women played a significant role in that change,” said SBA Administrator Maria Contreras-Sweet. “We are harnessing the power of America’s entrepreneurs to develop products, services and technologies that support women as they deal with the challenges of work and home. This innovation challenge will both help strengthen the economy and empower women to succeed.”
InnovateHER was launched earlier in March and includes competitions hosted by universities, accelerators, clusters, scale-up communities, SBA’s resource partners, and other local organizations.
Ten finalists will vie for a total of $30,000 in prize money provided by Microsoft. Finalists are being considered now. More information here.
And for Women’s History Month, the SBA has created a hub for women business owners. That information is here.
