I have an idea/concept but have not yet developed a prototype. Am I eligible to submit?

We ask that applicants only submit their product if they have a prototype available. While we do not require that you provide a physical sample with your initial online submission, we will need a sample later if you are selected to attend a virtual event.

Product samples will need to be sent in advance of the virtual event, if invited to present.

If I have a prototype but no capacity to manufacture, am I eligible to submit?

We have manufacturing facilities and if your submission is selected at the final round we can possibly look into manufacturing of the product.

What information is needed for me to submit?

Please review the following examples of the information/materials you will be required to provide in connection with your submission, ahead of the August 4th launch date. Most notably, a VIDEO SUBMISSION is required along with your product information.

  • Video (Review next question for more details!). In addition, up to 2 product images can be uploaded with your submission.
  • Patent/development status of your product.
  • Description of your product / invention.
  • List of the selling benefits and features of your product / invention.
  • If your product / invention is currently being sold, list of where and at what price.
  • Suggested "Retail" selling price.
  • Cost to manufacture (if known).
  • What is the story behind your company/brand?
  • Are there additional products in your product line?
  • Who is your target customer?
  • Is there a social media account (i.e. Instagram, Facebook, Twitter) connected to this product/brand? If so, please provide account name(s).
  • Do you have a manufacturer for your product and if so, where are they located?
  • If you have claims regarding your product, can they be substantiated with the relevant and appropriate support or clinical testing?
  • Are you capable of shipping directly to the customer? If not, are you open to using a third party?
  • If selected, do you have someone who could represent your product on-air? If so, who?

What needs to be included in my video submission?

In addition to all of the information above, you will need to submit a link to a video highlighting your product. The video should follow these guidelines:

  • Length should be 2 minutes or less.
  • Introduce yourself and how you are related to the product (e.g., inventor, CEO, brand representative, etc.).
  • Give us your best product pitch, highlighting the features and benefits of the product, as if you were selling on-air at Shop LC or TJC!

Please note that we require a video link (e.g., YouTube, Vimeo, etc.), as opposed to an actual file upload.
