FounderMade wants to make your brilliant wellness idea a business


foundermade-contest-galymzhan-abdugalimovAre you that person who’s got a running list of all your genius wellness ideas… but just haven’t figured out what exactly to do next to make them happen?

We’ve got your answer: FounderMade‘s healthy-minded startup competition, The Future of Wellness Challenge.

The company, which focuses on giving guidance and support to up-and-coming entrepreneurs, returns this January with its annual Wellness Summit in New York City—and for the second year, they’re including a Shark Tank-style competition to find the next Fitbit, Swerve Fitness, or Optimist Co. (last year’s contest winner!).

Here’s how it works: Aspiring wellness entrepreneurs (like you?) enter the challenge by submitting their business idea in the form of a short application and a video by January 8, at 11:59 p.m. EST.

From there, FounderMade will select 10 finalists; their videos will be shared on Well+Good for reader voting (which kicks off on January 11, so mark your calendar). The top three reader-selected ideas will then be presented at the FounderMade conference on January 30, where a panel of brilliant health and wellness judges will name the winner.

And the impact it could have on making your dream a reality is pretty impressive. Just ask Devin Donaldson, founder of Optimist Co., who notes that, “The FounderMade challenge provided the visibility and stage to take my business to the next level. You leave a FounderMade event thinking and acting in a bigger way.”

As for what the judges will be looking for, FounderMade’s co-founder May Lan Dong recommends that you “communicate your mission, that you pinpoint the value and need that your idea is filling, and explain why it’s something that you really do believe is changing the way we view wellness.”

As for that video component, FounderMade’s other co-founder, Meghan Asha, suggests that you approach it like a marketing tool.”Show us your story,” she says. “Think of it like a two-minute commercial.”

No sweat, right?
