I am very proud that Colliders Accelerator, The Alliance of Women Entrepreneurs (AWE), in conjunction with the University City Science Center, Robin Hood Ventures and Techgirlz, were selected as the steering committee for the Philadelphia Region “InnovateHER Competition”.

The InnovateHER Challenge is a national prize competition aimed at unearthing products and services that impact and empower the lives of women and families through local business competitions (like ours in Philadelphia) that culminate in a live pitch Final Round in Washington DC.

All applications for the Philadelphia region competition are due by Friday October 23 2015.  Put yourself in the running. Even if you don’t win, you will get noticed through all the great press coverage and networking opportunities.

The Philadelphia pitch event itself will take place on Monday, November 16, 2015, 3:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m at the World Café’ Live. We have some amazing judges (who inspired me to get started and keep going) and we have some amazing prizes.  So if you have a company that provides products or services that impact or empower the lives of women and families, please apply HERE.

The winner of the Philadelphia pitch will go into the InnovateHER Finals in DC. Up to 10 Finalists will compete for the Top Three cash prizes totaling $70,000 provided by Microsoft.  This year, the national InnovateHER Finals will be held on March 16 & 17, 2016 in the Washington, D.C. metro area as part of a larger Women’s Summit.
