Two female social entrepreneurs in Maryland have been invited to a pitch competition in Washington.
Charlene Fadirepo, who started Smart Choice Nation in Edgewater, and LaQuida Chancey, who started Smalltimore Homes in Baltimore, were invited to the second HERImpact DC Pitch Competition to set for 4 p.m. Sept. 11 at the Eaton hotel.
The competition will offer up to three winners representing emerging social enterprises with cash prizes up to $50,000 and more than $100,000 in in-kind support.
Ten finalists in two categories, early stage and growth stage businesses, were chosen from a pool of applicants to make their pitches to a panel of judges.
Smart Choice Nation is a financial education firm aimed at youth. Smalltimore Homes wants to fight homelessness by building tiny dwellings.
