Project Entrepreneur’s annual competition challenges women who intend to build a high-growth company using an existing prototype or beta technology. Participants apply by submitting information about the business idea and a panel of judges will select semi-finalists who will be awarded an opportunity to attend the Sponsor’s Weekend Intensive, and grantees will receive a $10,000 grant to be used in building their business and are accepted into a five-week accelerator program in New York.
