Thursday Links – 6.5.08

Posted on June 6, 2008. Filed under: Links | Tags: , , |

To help me keep my thoughts in order and to keep my readers up to date, I have started this post to bring together the important links on social entrepreneurship over the last couple weeks. There is going to be a great mix of articles and blogs from all over the internet, social entrepreneurship is in many forms. Every other Thursday I will post a few links from the web I have come across during the week.

This week’s resources contain some I have been saving up for a while and it’s a day late.

Hi Tera-

I’ve enjoyed reading your blog, and just wanted to send you some news about a great entrepreneurial opportunity I thought you’d be interested in and perhaps share with your audience.

I want to make you aware of Everyday Edisons, a nationally televised PBS reality show that documents the product development process (from start to finish) of approximately 12-14 inventions and the parallel stories of the inventors who created the original idea.

Everyday Edisons is holding one last casting call to select new product concepts for Season Three. Instead of visiting another city, this casting call will be hosted online through http://www.EdisonNation.com. At least one of the online submissions will be selected for the show. Participants can upload as many idea submissions as they like now through Monday, June 23.

If selected, you will have your invention/new product concept commercialized by Everyday Edisons and enjoy a 20-year annuity on future product sales. The television show takes care of all expenses involved in bringing the product to market.

Everyday Edisons is looking for inventions in all stages of the production and development process, from rough ideas to refined prototypes and manufactured products.

In order to be considered, all you need to do is log onto Edison Nation (www.EdisonNation.com) and create a profile. Look for the Everyday Edisons logo to submit to the sixth, virtual casting call. Register to become a Gold Member and enjoy many benefits, including the opportunity to submit your invention for the virtual Everyday Edisons casting call. The Web site will walk you through the submission process step-by-step and you can follow the status of your submission with the “idea review timeline,” which will appear on your Edison Nation home page when you log in with your user name and password.

If you haven’t had a chance to catch an episode of Everyday Edisons on your local PBS affiliate, you can check out a clip or two on http://www.youtube.com by simply searching “Everyday Edisons.” There are several fun things to view, including a behind-the-scenes clip; interviews with our engineers and Season One inventors; a Season One series recap and product “commercials.”

I just thought you and your readers would be interested in this opportunity. I hope you will encourage them to take advantage of it. Best of luck in all that you do!

Melissa
