Protolabs Cool Idea Competition invites you to submit your invention idea with the potential to win free prototyping of their invention idea.
To enter you need to explain a bit about your product and what support you would need from Protolabs (in terms of quantities and types of parts) and you also need to have a 3D CAD drawing of your product.
From the Protolabs Cool Idea Website
“There are many great product ideas out there that may never get the chance to get off the computer screen, into production, and ultimately into the hands of an adoring public. Why not? Even the most enthusiastic person who has put endless work into a top notch idea may fall short in bringing their product to life if they don’t have the resources and funds to make that happen. That’s where the Proto Labs Cool Idea! Award program comes in.”

Press Release Below
The Angel is a new television show for Sky 1. We are making 5 programmes altogether and in each of them 6 contestants compete for an investment of £100K in their business.
The Angel is John Caudwell, he will be investing the 100K into the business of the winning contestant, and he has a revolutionary business philosophy…
“With the right people on board, you can make almost anything work.”
The Angel is John Caudwell, from Stoke-on-Trent, who transformed twenty six mobile phones worth £1,350 each into a £2 billion pound business. Caudwell Group – best known for the high street chain Phones4U – was named the UK’s fastest growing company and by 2000 their annual turnover exceeded £1billion. Cauldwell insists that this success was mostly to do with the quality of his employees – who could have been successful in any business – rather than the fast-growing nature of the mobile phone market.
John will be putting the six contestants through a series of rounds specifically developed to test his six golden business attributes: drive, ambition, passion, resilience, commercial intellect and leadership. The last remaining entrepreneur each day will be awarded £100,000 of The Angel’s own money in investment.
It is only at this point that he finds out what he has invested in…..
We are filming towards the end of March and are currently looking for entrepreneurs to take part.
