“There were so many remarkable applications that featured thoughtful business solutions,” said Carrie Strom, President, Global Allergan Aesthetics and Senior Vice President at AbbVie. “BOTOX Cosmetic was born out of the entrepreneurial spirit and its more than 20-year history is rooted in people seeing a challenge and finding an answer. Each of the women selected to receive a grant saw a need for change, and set out to make a positive difference in the world. We are thrilled to celebrate them and support their businesses.”
