Have you ever had an innovative idea that could solve a common problem, change the world, or make something better? The founders of THINX did. Antonia Dunbar and sisters, Miki and Radha Agrawal, decided it was time to rethink women’s underwear. Last year, they entered our Product Pitch competition along with hundreds of other entrepreneurs for a chance to take their business to the next level. Voters at The Grommet’s 2013 Product Pitch Event agreed that THINX was that next great innovative idea and last week, they launched on The Grommet. You can see their video here.
Now, right on the heels of last year's winner becoming a Grommet, we're warming up for our next 2nd Annual Product Pitch Season.
Think your problem solver or hack has what it takes to be a Grommet? Great news, we're kicking off The 2nd Annual Product Pitch Contest and want to hear why your product should be our next winner.
