Seeking all moms who strive to make life as a parent easier and more enjoyable every day. The Huggies Mom Inspired Grant Program awards inspired moms $15,000 in seed money. The grant goes towards the development of original product ideas and startup businesses.

A committee reviews each submission with many factors in mind. Is it an original and creative invention idea? Does it solve a parental issue? Is it commercially viable? What stage of development is it in?

The program was born two years ago when Kimberly-Clark felt the need to tap into the mom invention ideas out there. Since then, twenty-one moms have become recipients of the Mom Inspired grant.

Applications are now being accepted through Tuesday, July 31, 2012, at 11:59 p.m. EST.

In the “open innovation” age, major companies are creating more and more opportunities for inventors out there. If you or anyone you know has a new invention idea and would like assistance submitting to the Huggies Mom Inspired Grant Program, please contact us at New Product Consulting.
