Are you one of those moms (like me) that says at least once a day, “Wow, if only someone would invent a _____ that would ____!” If so, Whirlpool has a grant opportunity for you that just may help you take that invention from concept to completion!
The grand prize winner will receive a $20,000 grant, a dishwasher and a few other great periks including a stipend for a new home office (imagine what one could buy with $3,000!)
The grant program is then broken down into two categories. The traditional category offers a $7,000 grant, a dishwasher and a washer and dryer to the top winner and a $5,000 grant along with some other perks for the second place winner.
This year, Whirlpool has added a Green Category in keeping up with the new and improved times. All winners get to attend a business boot camp that will teach about business strategies, marketing and legalaties among other things.
Those who have gone so far as to write business plans, take photographs or have prototypes made get to submit this information as well.
So come on, innovative moms! Check out more about the grant opportunity and if you win-or even if you get up the nerve to send something in-drop me an email and let me know!
