SAN FRANCISCO — RangeMe is helping QVC US and HSN take The Big Find international product search to new heights this year by making it easier than ever for entrepreneurs and inventors to submit their products for consideration. With the support of RangeMe, QVC and HSN further cement their commitment to product discovery during this annual initiative.
“At QVC and HSN, we’ve launched and nurtured some of the nation’s most successful entrepreneurial brands, and now through The Big Find, we continue to bring customers innovative new brands, compelling products and inspiring stories,” says Mary Campbell, Chief Merchandising Officer, Qurate Retail Group, and Chief Commerce Officer, QVC US. “For our 2020 search, the RangeMe platform streamlines the application process for participating brands and supports our efforts in discovering new and innovative products for our millions of customers.”
The Big Find is returning for its second year to discover the latest and most innovative entrepreneurs and brands that will share their stories to an audience of millions across QVC and HSN’s multiple platforms including broadcast, digital, and streaming. This year, The Big Find will be held virtually to allow for safe and convenient engagement between vendors and QVC and HSN judges.
“RangeMe has set the standard for online product discovery, and being a part of The Big Find is an exciting alliance,” says Nicky Jackson, CEO and Founder of RangeMe. “Our success has come from being able to disrupt the accepted norms of new product discovery within the consumer packaged goods industry, and we’re thrilled to be able to bring that innovation to QVC and HSN.”
Through August 19th, The Big Find will accept applications, which will include video submissions, from brands across nine categories, including apparel, jewelry, accessories, footwear and beauty and new categories for this year including home décor, home innovation, electronics and culinary including food. Interested brands can submit their information through the RangeMe platform and select entrepreneurs or vendors will be invited to pitch their products virtually in September via videoconference to a panel of QVC and HSN judges.
