“Everyday Edisons” Season 5 Casting Call Weekend Recap

Over the weekend, our team flew in the 25 finalists who are up for a spot on Everyday Edisons Season 5 to audition their ideas in person. The inventors stood before judges Louis Foreman, creator of Everyday Edisons; Mindy Grossman, chief executive officer of HSN; Jon Dudas, president of FIRST and former director of the United States Patent & Trademark Office; and Carolyn Forte, director of home appliances, cleaning products, textiles and paper products at Good Housekeeping Magazine.

In addition to a great group of inventors and great presentations, the weekend included a Friday night welcome dinner; special guests such as Eggies® inventor, Betsy Kaufman and Gyro Bowl inventors and Everyday Edisons alums, Brad and Melinda Shepard; a Saturday afternoon wrap party; and a few impromptu inventor gatherings in the evenings from what we hear! 😉

    I believe this was one of the most interesting, positive, enjoyable weekends I’ve experienced in a long time. The EN and EE people and the other invertors were warm and genuine and made me feel like we all knew each other already and were just getting together to see how everyone was doing.
    Amazing job, EN and EE,
    Corey.

    Hi EN. I would have been No. 10, but unfortunately I could not attend due to health
    reasons.

    I was so excited when Rich called me to tell
    me my good fortune. My partner John V. did
    a wonderful job presenting our product.

    I did see it all on line and everyone looked
    great! John V. and Betsy kept me updated as
    the day went along. I did feel like I was
    there.

    Thank you again EN for picking our product and
    hope it is a big hit.

    Hugs,
    Toni LaCava
