National Small Business Week InnovateHER Competition

InnovateHER is a cross-cutting women's business challenge to unearth innovative products and services that help impact and empower the lives of women and families.

We know that our workforce looks very different from 50 years ago. Women now make up nearly half of the labor force and play a critical role in our nation’s economic prosperity. Most children live in households where all parents work. And as our population ages, families are increasingly caring for aging parents while balancing the needs of work and home. As demands on women and families grow, the need for products and services that address unique challenges increases. This Challenge will provide that platform.

Wendy Guillies, Acting President and CEO of the Kauffman Foundation is one of the judges for this competition. To see the list of finalists and for more information please visit the U.S. Small Business Administration website.
