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 three months of studio space and mentorship in Manhattan’s Hudson Square to the winning entry.
Greater access to entrepreneurship is the future for women. If you’re a woman in hardware, or an inventor with a good idea, submit your entry by November 17th. The Six best entries will be notified by November 20th for an opportunity to pitch on November 28th at Collab. One winner will be selected from the pitch night competition and given the space, support, resources and mentoring to help build a thriving business.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
