Today at The Washington Post in Washington, D.C., there was a gathering of 14 entrepreneurs pitching their ideas to an esteemed panel of four judges. The event, InnovateHer, was the final Small Business Week event put on by the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA).
The purpose was to identify ways to help women and their families by providing a product, service, or technology.
As I first entered the venue, I could tell that the energy was high. The finalists were buzzing with last minute preparations, and onlookers were anxious to hear their presentations.
