InnovateHER provides an opportunity for entrepreneurs throughout the U.S. to showcase products and services that have a measurable impact on the lives of women and families, have the potential for commercialization, and fill a need in the marketplace.
The InnovateHER Challenge celebrated its inaugural year in 2015. In 2016, a local pitch competition component was added. Pitch locations included universities, accelerators, SBA Resource Partners, Microsoft stores, and other organizations. Each host submitted one local winner to the SBA, who then identified 10 national finalists. These finalists were invited to travel to the Washington D.C. metro area on March 17, 2016 for a live pitch competition and compete for up to $70,000 in prize money. The 2017 InnovateHER Challenge will be set up similarly.
