In 2010, with a $5000 budget, Jamie Ratner launched a website dedicated to finding and offering great family activities, items, and services to her community. Almost three years later, CertifiKID, LLC has become the leading Mid-Atlantic family-oriented website and a go-to resource for over 100,000 families.
Now it’s time to find the next up and coming local family-friendly business of course! (drum roll please)…Introducing, CertifiKID’s Project Pup Bowl.
CertifiKID’s Project Pup Bowl is looking for the next breakthrough business, entrepreneur, innovator or inventor in the Washington DC and Baltimore area. CertifiKID’s Pup Bowl, made up of local experts in the child and family friendly business categories, will take applications from hundreds of local established businesses and give one lucky winner a kick-start to success with a $5,000 -or more- Grand Prize to use toward their business, mentoring sessions, plus direct access to 100,000 local parents.

Then each business will have a chance to present their business to the Pup Bowl at this special event on April 22nd, 2013 at Imagination Stage. During that session, each business will also get a priceless consultation opportunity with the Pup Bowl during which they will receive advice, critiques, comments and ideas.
