Skild Delves into Winners of the 2016 Enter Prize Innovation Contest Ideas

Good businesses don’t always make it – and it’s a shame that happens. Many entrepreneurs have trouble getting their business to progress because they lack the resources to do it. Now with the 2016 Amarillo EnterPrize Challenge, this innovation contest has awarded participants from either already existing businesses or new ones both with brilliant plans. 7 companies went away with more money then they came with, two of which left with $100,000 each. Those two were Libby Lane Leather and Battle Beaver Customs.

Libby Lane Leather, is basically a one-person business. Libby Lane, the 29-year old founder and owner, was the only woman at the event to present her hand crafted leather company. Because she is one of the winners of this years challenge, Lane can do all the things she hasn’t been able to with the generous grant she received. For one thing: Get employees. “I plan to hire three this year, and then from there, three a year,” Lane stated.
