What is InnovateHER?

*measurable impact on the lives of women and families (30%); has the potential for commercialization (40%); and fills a need in the marketplace (30%).

Email Stephanie@DiversitySolutionsTX.com and submit your idea via 1-2 paragraphs and/or a Vimeo video.

Six businesses (or teams) will be chosen for a live competition on Tuesday March 24th at the Richardson Civic Center. You must have a business plan completed as part of the requirements or you will be not chosen at our top 6.

The Small Business Administration (SBA) is giving me a short window to plan and execute this event. It must be held in March and I need all the help I can get.

The winner's information for the Dallas InnovateHER will be sent to the Small Business Administration and if chosen, she (or team) will have a chance to pitch their idea in Washington D.C. in May and win up to $15,000.

There is no application fee and no attendance fee.
