CALL: Invent-Her Entrepreneurship

Invent-Her is Access to Entrepreneurship for Women

Collab’s Invent-Her 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’s Futureworks Shops program, Collab has created Invent-Her to support women by providing six months of studio space and mentorship in Brooklyn to the winning entry.

Our next Pitch Party is September 12th. Applications must be submitted by August 23, 2019. Applications selected to participate in the Pitch Party will be notified by the end of August.

One winner will be selected from the pitch night competition and given the space, support, resources and mentoring to help build a thriving business.

Winners will receive:

  • Six months membership/desk space at Collab

  • 10K in support services for prototyping and more

  • Access to potential investors

  • Mentoring and startup support


Prior experience starting, operating or working in a business is not a prerequisite.  We are looking for a female, or a group of females with an idea that embodies the greatest impact.  We are looking for inventive ideas and entrepreneurs with the passion, wit and will to succeed.
