Dream Big America’s™ Mission
Throughout our history, every great product, service, non-profit, or cause started with a burgeoning idea that kept someone awake at night. That person invested their hard-earned savings, took great risks, and endured sacrifice because they believed in something bigger than themselves.
America became great because that person could have a dream – and be willing to work hard – and make that dream come true. And almost always our society benefited from those “American Dreams.”
In today’s economy, we need great ideas, innovative thinkers, and big dreamers more than ever. Dream Big America’s™ mission is to provide a modern-day platform for entrepreneurs across America to learn, interact, discover the resources needed to get great ideas to the market. Importantly, its mission is to help great ideas, great American Dreams, come to fruition.
Welcome to Dream Big America™, where we give a voice to entrepreneurs!
How Does the Dream Big America Show Work?
The Dream Big America™ Radio Show: Each week the Dream Big America™ Show features three entrepreneurs pitching their startup concept to a live, national listening audience. The show airs every Friday from 9:00am to 10:00am ET on the nationally syndicated Doug Stephan’s Good Day Show and on the nationally syndicated My Cool Inventions radio program. The live stream is available here.
Voting: Each week you have the opportunity to vote for your favorite startup contestant! Voting is open beginning at 9:00am ET the morning of the show until 5:00pm ET the following Thursday. The startup that receives the highest number of votes advances to the Finals Round at the end of the month.
Finals Round: The Finals Round, which is the last Friday of every month, showcases the three highest vote-receiving startups from the preceding three weeks. Again, the national audience selects their favorite finalist, which becomes that month’s Dream Big America™ Champion!
Contestants: Every week we highlight three innovative entrepreneurs who have big ideas! One of the weekly startup contestants is the winner from our partner program, My Cool Inventions, which highlights inventors and entrepreneurs every Monday through Friday at the same time on the same networks. The other two Dream Big America™ startup contestants are either selected by our partners or apply to be on the show.
