Celebrating Women Entrepreneurs on Ideator
Female entrepreneurship is definitely on the rise in the U.S. and around the world. So much so that Startup Grind, the largest independent startup community in the world, recently declared May to be “Female Founders Month.” To lend our support to the occasion, and to recognize some of the remarkable women entrepreneurs on Ideator, here’s a quick recap of the businesses they have recently started.
Julie Maillard – AvecElle
People with restricted diets often have a hard time finding a place where they can eat out safely, especially when dining with friends. AvecElle makes it easy to arrange dinner get-togethers with groups of friends by recommending local gluten-free restaurants that offer meals everyone can enjoy.
Michelle Stansbury – The Date Spot
If you think there’s a better way than Tinder to set up a date, Stansbury has just the app for you. By recommending “date deals” tailored to users’ shared interests and locations, the Date Spot eliminates the planning and decision-making that often slows down the dating process and makes it easier to get offline and meet face-to-face.
Maz Cohen – Wisher
Every day 21 billion wishes are made in the mere hope for it to happen. Wisher is a brand new business that enables easy wishing and giving all year round. Users make wishes big or small, share them with family and friends and they grant them in return.
Bianca Alvarado – Trash to Paradise
A critical ecosystem for many types of wildlife, the Tijuana River Watershed is especially vulnerable to harmful pollutants like motor oil, fertilizer, and plastic trash. Trash to Paradise uses recycled materials and wetland plants to transform sewer water into “gray” water that can be used to clean up polluted areas within the delicate watershed.
Meredith Kaloogian – Mommy Dearest Delivers
When grownups get sick, who brings the Nyquil, chicken soup, and other essentials to help you feel better? Thanks to Kaloogian, Mommy Dearest Delivers does. An on-demand sick-day delivery service, Mommy Dearest Delivers brings over-the-counter medicine, natural remedies, and other healing products, including a little TLC, to your doorstep in less than an hour.

Lexi Sprague – RevvPay
Making in-car payments at auto-related services, such as fast food drive-thru lanes, parking lots, gas stations, hotel check-ins, and renting a car, can be a hassle. Sprague’s idea, RevvPay, streamlines the process by using license plate recognition technology to initiate hands-free payments while in your car.
Lo-Rain Shiimi – AirCharter
Regular travelers in Africa often spend hours waiting for connecting flights between cities. Air Charter hires or sources local private jets to help these travelers get from point A to point B without having to stop and change planes in between, thereby reducing the time spent in transit and the price of tickets.
