Bring Your Best Ideas Forward

How many of us have had the spark of something wonderful: a business selling your own calligraphy skills for handwritten invitations, or hand-sewn baby mats with washable, lively prints, only to dismiss it because we’re not ‘business’ people? Especially those of us who devote most of our resources to raising children?
Michael C. Hill is a venture capitalist and small business advocate who realizes that there are millions of people who have fantastic, creative, practical ideas—but not the knowledge or resources to really pursue them. So, he has put together something remarkable: a business idea contest where the winner receives one million dollars in seed money to fund their idea.

Why is he doing this? Well, Hill also gets that what the economy really needs for a boost is new jobs. New jobs come from new businesses. So, his venture capital company is providing the seed money for the selected winner. And! Runners up receive thousands of dollars in seed money as well, in addition to all the planning resources necessary: accounting info, planning advice, etc. It’s basically a win-win for all.

So, enter the contest here:, and then come on back and tell us what you submitted!
