The list celebrates dynamic, inspiring, trailblazing women entrepreneurs who had the biggest impact in the past year.

"I am proud of the work we do at AllHere and it is an honor to be recognized by Inc. for our achievements in education technology," said Smith-Griffin. "Thank you for recognizing me as an innovator. I am grateful for this recognition of women entrepreneurs on a mission to bring about impactful change. May this inspire little girls out there with big dreams to never give up in pursuit of their passions."

Smith-Griffin is a former teacher, school family engagement director, and a Forbes 30 under 30 recipient who founded AllHere in 2016 to help schools tackle the issue of chronic absenteeism. The Harvard Innovation Labs venture has since become the leading developer of AI-powered applications for school districts.

AllHere's first product is AI-Based Chat designed to improve school attendance and foster students' academic success and personal growth by engaging families through proactive text message interventions in their preferred language. More recently, through a public-private partnership with the Los Angeles Unified School District, AllHere released a first-of-its-kind learning acceleration platform named Ed(TM) which is designed to provide students and families with an ecosystem of valuable resources and support for fast-tracking student achievement beyond the school day.

AllHere's solutions are built by educators and independently proven to positively impact stakeholder communication, family engagement, and student success. The company has earned multiple accolades and education awards, including being recognized by the SIIA for responsible use of AI in education.

After launching in 2018, the Female Founders list is one of Inc.'s most esteemed franchises. The list features women who have overcome challenges and lifted those around them, while leading impactful organizations across the country. Smith-Griffin joins the ranks of previous honorees which include Jessica Alba, Tracee Ellis Ross, Rihanna, and Shonda Rhimes.

"The past year, for many, will go down as one of the hardest ever -- between a funding freeze and ad-spending pull back," said Diana Ransom, Inc. Executive Editor. "The female founders on this year's list are a testament to what triumph over adversity looks like. They should all be proud of this singular accomplishment."
