It is the recipient of a national Coleman Foundation Case Award, and was founded by a experienced executive and Harvard Business School case author who is the instructor of the nationally award-winning Women’s Entrepreneurial Leadership class at the George Washington University School of Business. The Hot Mommas Project is included in the mission of the school’s Center for Entrepreneurial Excellence.

The announcement of awards is published in The Washington Post featuring the background and purpose of awards and all the cases will be published by Pearson. The case studies selected are generally discussed at School of Business, George Washington University, Harvard Business School and many other B-Schools of the World to promote Women entrepreneurship and learn from the dynamic women who made their mark in the field of Entrepreneurship. These awards are given to acknowledge the efforts of Women Entrepreneurs in Education at global level.

Many of the 400 cases, a technique borrowed from the case-study model of teaching pioneered by Harvard Business School have been published in business school textbooks. The research on such awards shows that seeing a woman play a central role in a case study makes other women more confident about what they can accomplish and feel more successful when they are able to accomplish one key thing: managing the demands of career and home.
