Hosted by the U.S. Small Business Administration, the 2017 InnovateHER Challenge is seeking innovative products and services that help impact and empower the lives of women and families.
The Louisiana event is a qualifying for the national event that will take place later this year, awarding up to $70,000 to the three highest-rated contestants in the final round. Instead of a pitch competition like previous years, the local event is now completely digital and requires applications to submit a business plan and pitch video.
Contestants must develop a product or service that meets the following criteria: has a measurable impact on the lives of women and families, has the potential for commercialization, and fills a need in the marketplace.
Applications are due by June 2. Find out more via sba.gov.
