They call them Grommets and define them as products with purpose, invented by people with stories. And on this episode of Smart Companies Radio, you'll meet the two women behind all of those grommets or consumer products, more than 2000 since 2008. Julies Pieri, Co-founder, and CEO of The Grommet says she and Co-founder Joanne Domeniconi grew tired of watching fewer and fewer remarkable consumer products making it to the marketplace and decided to do something about it.

The Grommet is Pieri's third start up. She was named one of Fortune's Most Powerful Women Entrepreneurs in 2013 and one of Goldman Sach's 100 Most Interesting Entrepreneurs in 2014.

Domeniconi who is also the Chief Discovery Officer of the product launch program at The Grommet spent over 20 years at Stride Rite Corporation as Vice President of Product Development. 

On this episode you'll also learn about a new ebook featuring contributions from over 100 inventors, Makers, and entrepreneurs who have launched on The Grommet since 2008 and how you can get the book for free.
