Submissions for the 2019 Rhyze Awards are open!
The goal of The Rhyze Award is to create an opportunity that’s currently missing in our region: an award that will not only provide the funding women entrepreneurs need to finance their businesses, but the mentoring and support they need at key stages of their development to build and grow their businesses long term.
The Rhyze Award is the first program to emerge from research completed on the The Rhyze Project.
