Take the Leap…

happy-leap-year-2016Have a great idea?  Now is the time to “take the leap” into entrepreneurship.  The Jacksonville Women’s Business Center (JWBC) offers a wide variety of programs for women entrepreneurs, from aspiring to accomplished. Unlock your true potential with one or more programs from JWBC. Check our Find a Program page to select a program that’s right for you.

In the spirit of taking the leap, here is a great opportunity for all you “Mompreneurs” out there:

Have you ever wanted to turn your invention into a money-making product? Now’s your chance!  QVC is home to some of today’s most popular products, including FrostGuard, Scrub Daddy and last year’s winner of TODAY’s Next Big Thing: GoodHangUps. Now, your invention could join the ranks.

TODAY is collaborating with QVC once again to find “TODAY’s Next Big Thing,” a country-wide search for the next greatest product to hit the market. This time, we’re looking for mom entrepreneurs (or “mom-preneurs,” get it?), to submit their inventions!

If you’re a mom and you’re sitting on a creative invention, send us your idea here through March 4. Finalists will be selected to come pitch their product live on TODAY during the week of April 18 to a panel of judges, then viewers will get to vote for their favorite. The three products with the highest votes in their categories will return to TODAY, where the panel of judges will select a winner. The winning inventor will get to sell his or her product on QVC’s show “Saturday Morning Q” on April 23.

Enter now — we can’t wait to see what great ideas you’re sitting on!
