Today, Idea Café has announced that WOMbeat! has won the competition for Idea Cafe’s annual “Innovation and Originality Grant”.

With more than 25% of the total votes, WOMbeat! joins a line-up of inspiring entrepreneurs who have won an Idea Cafe grant in the past. Previous winners have gone on to big success, including one grant winner who later won the $100,000 Wells Fargo’s Someday Stories contest. Another grant winner, Marchand Ink, has been featured in The London Times and New Orleans Magazine, among other press.  “Winning this grant propelled me into a spiral of success and accolades,” said Percy Marchand, the founder of Marchand Ink.

Established by veteran entrepreneur Francie Ward, the Idea Cafe Small Business Grants distinguish small business owners with extraordinary ideas and drive to succeed, who are dedicated to helping their local community and peers.
