Invent-Her is Access to Entrepreneurship for Women

Collab's Invent-Her platform is an opportunity for New York City-based female inventors and entrepreneurs to gain access, opportunity and support to start, grow or expand their business.  As part of NYCEDC and Futureworks Shops program, Collab has created Invent-Her to support women by providing six months of studio space and mentorship in Brooklyn to the winner of its annual competition. 

Invent-Her is more inclusive than just a competition. Each year, dozens of female entrepreneurs and women-led companies submit to be selected to present their ideas to a panel of successful women business owners.  With only 5 entries being selected each year, the competition is difficult. That’s why Invent-Her plans to hosts events, seminars, classes, and mentorship and funding opportunities in conjunction with its partners from and the NYCEDC throughout the year. If you’re a woman looking for support, and a healthy community to start, launch or explore your ideas, Invent-Her is for you.  

Please reach out to us through the form below, and we’ll add you to our mailing list so you’re always up to date on the latest opportunities, mentoring and funding opportunities, and gatherings.
