Shirley Hayden

An alumnae of the Hillman Entrepreneurs Program at Prince George’s Community College, Ms. Hayden cites the program at the college as being a major factor in preparing her to be successful when she was ready to transfer to the University of Maryland. Her most memorable experience was interviewing a Washington Wizards coach as part of her Hillman Entrepreneurs business plan course. She credits that experience in shaping her presentation skills today. Ms. Hayden is the creator of The Unique Seat, an innovative seating system.

Ms. Hayden came up with the idea for The Unique Seat when visiting the beach with her family and InventionHome worked closely with QVC to land Ms. Hayden a license agreement with a major manufacturer of beach and backyard furniture. She has been seen on American Dreams on HSN for inventors to showcase their products.
