Need Money? Fortune maybe your answer.

Hi all! We just got this in on our Inventors Forum.


NBC and the BBC Worldwide are proud to announce a primetime television event that will change the lives of everyday Americans. "FORTUNE" (working title - based on UK format) will bring together a distinguished panel of America's wealthiest philanthropists who join forces to make people's dreams come true.

Our group of multi-millionaires will be presented with a variety of people who all have one thing in common: they need money. Hopefuls will take the stage for 60 seconds in the spotlight to tell the panel their story. Perhaps your local charity needs $274,500 to buy medical devices to save thousands of lives. Maybe your small business needs $3,700 to avoid bankruptcy. Or maybe you're a 10-year-old boy who just wants $89 to buy his mother a necklace for her birthday. No amount is too big or too small. No request is too insignificant. From a new house to a new nose or even new uniforms for your cheerleading squad, if you wow the panel with your one-minute presentation, your life could be changed - on the spot!

This forum allows our multi-millionaires the opportunity to share their wealth and see first-hand how they can make a difference. Conversely, this show presents a once-in-a-lifetime chance for Americans from all walks of life to fulfill their heart's desire.

All Open Calls are from 9:00AM - 6:00PM

This kind of show has been done before

I can't remember the name of the show but it had exactly the same format that you mentioned above. Inventors made their presentation to a group of funders in the hopes of getting their invention produced (and funded). I don't know if the show is still on the air but reading your article made me think about it and I often use it as a good point of reference when talking to investors about funding. The basic premise for that show is exactly what inventors have to do when looking for sponsors or other funders for their inventions.

Idea that could change America

Hi my name is Jeremy Willis,I work in biomedical engineering at Childrens Mercy Hospital and am a fulltime college student.I have a huge idea that could change everybodys perception of doing the laundry and have been working on an invention but do not have the resources to complete.I have moved my mom into our house because she has had cancer 3 times and is not in the best of health.My wife and I have also just had our first child Jeremiah.It is just so hard to pursue this invention at 21 years old and so much going on and little money. I know if I got the chance to just tell someone my full disclosed idea and how it would work I could make history and finally make my dream come true while benefitting millions.

I need help today

I've tried everything possible to pay my bills. I need groceries. If there is anyone out there that can spare 2 or 3 dollars you have no idea how much this would be appreciated. I'm behind on everything and just desparately need a small amount of help. I promise to return the favor when I get straightened out.
