sockTABs wins again!

Tracie Burress, owner of sockTABs and winner of EIGERlab’s 2014 FastPitch Competition, has completed yet another impressive challenge. She is the only woman chosen in the state of Illinois as the semifinalist in Chicago’s Women’s Business Development Center InnovateHER CHALLENGE! For the next stage of the InnovateHER CHALLENGE, Tracie is one of only 10 women throughout the United States who will compete for over $30,000 in cash prizes in Washington, D.C.

To prepare for the submittal, she worked with both Sherry Pritz at EIGERlab and Brian McIntyre with the Small Business Development Center. We at NIU-EIGERlab wish Tracie much success in the Competition!
