Our Founder Kerri Couillard Wins HauteHopes Scholarship on Feb 21st
Kerri Couillard, from right here in Santa Fe, has been operating a company since 2011, that provides infant and toddler equipment rentals to local grandparents and families visiting Santa Fe. She was chosen as a finalist for an inaugural 2015 HauteHopes scholarship. This past Saturday night she 'pitched' her business successfully from stage to a crowd of over 200 at Tamaya Resort in Bernalillo, NM. There were 11 finalists, and enough was donated, so that the organization Hautepreneurs could award 6 scholarships even though they initially only thought they could support 3.
Ms. Couillard came home a winner from the competition and will receive seed money, a yearlong entrepreneurial training program, will be put into a mastermind group mostly made up of Albuquerque high-level women in order to build a support system, as well as will be able to attend many start-up and entrepreneur conferences throughout the state. She was also gifted a lawyer to acquire a new trademark and will receive a large branding package.
J.Kelly Hoey says this about Ms. Couillard ... "This is what an entrepreneur looks like - she's a programmer, Mom of 2 and she's making money disrupting the baby set with a collaborative economy biz model HauteHopes Finalist, Kerri Couillard founder of Babierge @jkhoey
About Ms. Hoey

The organization Hautepreneurs, based in Albuquerque, has developed a fund that provides start-up and business scholarships with grants to disadvantaged women of New Mexico. "We've found there is this 'grey area' where women fall through the cracks of the current systems in place to help fund and support businesses, either because they don't have access to capital or the right network for vital mentoring. So many businesses launched by women have the potential to be successful but stall in that grey zone, and we aim to help these women make the leap across that divide to viability where these women entrepreneurs are then positioned to gain access to resources and capital they couldn't have otherwise accessed to by virtue of their inexperience in business and their gender," said Lisa Abeyta, Co-Founder of Hautepreneurs and Albuquerque business owner.
