Zakeez, Inc.
Outstanding Woman-owned Business Award

The first-ever SCORE Awards was held on September 17, 2009 recognized excellence in and support of America’s small businesses.

SCORE honored Zakeez, Inc., an ergonomics and human factors company that specializes in research and development of innovative and unique products and services that improve the quality of life of children and help parents and babies feel closer to each other.

Yamile Jackson, a Ph.D. in ergonomics and human factors engineering and licensed professional engineer, used her personal experience, work and education to invent the award-winning “The Zaky®.”

This product is used in hundreds of hospitals and thousands of homes and child-care facilities, and by preemies, ill, healthy and special-needs children worldwide.

Just after starting her business, Jackson turned to Houston SCORE for advice and mentoring. SCORE experts have helped her develop her business plan and marketing materials, such as brochures, posters and a Web site, www.zakeez.com.
