The Remarkable Ideas Competition II proved once again that women have remarkable ideas that deserve to heard and implemented! Extraordinary ideas for creating a better and healthier world were shared at competition ideation sessions and pitch events. 
Ultimately, the Great Dames Community voted, and the grand prize was awarded to
Dr. Kimberly Nalda, founder of Rekindle Family Medicine, for her refreshing approach to providing high quality, affordable health care to her patients.  Dr. Nalda will receive a $25,000 prize package of cash and services to help accelerate her business plan.  Her success team includes a business mentor, Fred Dawson, Bassett, Dawson & Foy, and marketing consultant, Donna Duffy, 3E Marketing Solutions.  Additional services are listed in the Winner Package.

All of the Remarkable Finalists are being matched with a business mentor and invited to join the Remarkable Ideas Community to connect them with people, resources and opportunities for increased success.
