FORT WORTH, Texas, Nov. 18, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Three companies competed at EOSERA’s inaugural EmpowHERment Pitch Competition in Fort Worth on November 17th, 2022, but only one walked away with the $10K grand prize. After pitching for 8 minutes with 4 minutes of Q&A, 3 qualified judges selected founder Dee Dee Bryant of Boozy Bites as the first EmpowHERment Pitch Competition winner.
Boozy Bites, a woman-led company, is the world’s first premium edible cocktail. Formulated by one of the nation’s top scientists, Boozy Bites’ proprietary gel is vegan and wine based—and the best part—every Bite comes in their patented push up cup.

Boozy Bites also competed against PWR WMN—the people’s choice award winner of $2,500—another woman-led company that makes blazers with pockets that are functional and feminine.
