SCORE helps you succeed! 
Check out one of our latest success stories.
For best friends Kate Compton Barr, Lauren Hughey and Amber Kroeker, an annual girls' weekend was the launchpad for their now-thriving business. Kroeker, an infant safety expert, realized that many infant deaths from SIDS could be prevented if babies zero to six months old had a safe and portable sleep space. She encouraged Compton Barr and Hughey to go into business with her, and Pip & Grow was born. The trio developed the Smitten Sleep System, a recyclable and portable bassinet box that comes with a firm mattress, cotton sheet and carrying handles.


How SCORE helped: Hughey says, "SCORE made us significantly more efficient, because we didn't have to reinvent the wheel. We could lean on an entire stable of experts who have already 'been there, done that.' We would have made a lot more mistakes and not have grown on a stable foundation." 


Pip & Grow is the 2018 SCORE Award winner for Outstanding Retail Small Business, presented by Liberty Tax. They are also a 2018 American Small Business Championship Grand Champion, winning them $15,000 courtesy of Sam's Club.
