Calling All Would-Be Entrepreneurs

Our Start Small, Go Big Contest Returns


Is there anything we love more than jewelry designers who wake the neighbors with their fine-metal hammering, a hairdresser with secret weapons against humidity, or a bartender who pours drinks and hooks us up? Perhaps just one: helping these brilliant businesses get off the ground.

So bring on our second annual Start Small, Go Big Contest, your chance to launch your bazillion dollar idea (that’s not bacon milk). The deadline for entries is August 5.

One winner from each of our categories (fashion, beauty, food and drink, and home) will win a trip to New York City, a DailyCandy write-up, and a day at the DailyCandy Academy, where the likes of Isaac Mizrahi, Marcus Samuelsson, and Rebecca Minkoff will mentor the begenius out of you.

Just think, you have nothing to lose but your day job.
