The Hot Mommas Project on May 3 honored the winners of its 2011 case study competition.  First place went to Liz Corah, founder and owner/operator of Studio-310, a highly successful dance and fitness facility in Rockville, Md.  GW student Chelsea Swift, who is pursuing her education while battling lupus, was recognized as first runner-up in the competition.

The award program was Webcast live and viewed by hundreds around the world.  Accepting her award, Corah offered the following words of encouragement, “Confidence is beauty, strong is the new thin, and if you say ‘I can’, you will.”

The Hot Mommas Project is an independent venture housed at the GW School of Business and included in the mission of the Center for Entrepreneurial Excellence.  It maintains the world’s largest women’s case study database, creating digital role models for women and girls around the world.

The event’s organizers thanked the case authors, judges, volunteers and sponsors – including the Center for Entrepreneurial Excellence, Direct Selling Education Foundation,, FMS: World Class Software Solutions, Linda Rabbit of Rand Construction, Tenley Carp and Sephora – for helping to make the competition and awards program such a success.
