We are proud to announce that Dovetail Community Workshop’s business plan has won the New Mexico Local Host Competition for the InnovateHER Challenge!
This new nationwide prize competition is sponsored by the U.S. Small Business Administration, in partnership with Microsoft, to find the most innovative products and services that help impact and empower women’s lives. National finalists will have the opportunity to present a live pitch to a panel of expert judges and compete for up to $70,000 in cash prizes (thanks, Microsoft!). That would give us some much-needed seed money to get Dovetail off the ground.
We’re still learning all the details, but we’re honored to have been recognized for our efforts to bring a community workshop to Albuquerque. One of our top priorities is to empower the women of our community to learn a new skill and create products they can take to market.
Many thanks to Emerging Technology Ventures in Alamagordo for sponsoring the local InnovateHER Challenge.
