Early in September, we submitted bumbrella for a chance to be part of this nation-wide televised competition on the Today Show segment "The Next Big Thing". Out of 2000 applicants, bumbrella along with 8 others were selected to participate, winner would sell live on QVC. The Today Show flew in Tara Gallagher, our founder and president from Ohio to New York City so she could pitch bumbrella last Tuesday on air.
"It was an interesting experience, you had less than 60 seconds to pitch your product and cover all the important points, it all goes very fast, but we couldn't be happier about all the exposure!" said Tara Gallagher.
While bumbrella did not go on to the next round we were truly grateful to all who voted for us (we heard we were so close!) Also a big thanks to the Today Show and QVC for the opportunity to be part of this great experience!
