Less shark tank and more koi pond, Walmart’s new inventor’s contest, Get on the Shelf, invites anyone in the U.S. to submit a video of a self-developed product between now and February 22 for a chance to “Get on the Shelf” , at Walmart – at least an online shelf , and in some select stores. Winners will be chosen by popular vote at the website starting March 7.
According to the Huffington Post, “The initiative is headed by @WalmartLabs, the company’s e-commerce and social development platform. “We know there are some great undiscovered products that have not yet reached our shelves,” Venky Harinarayan, senior VP of global e-commerce and co-head of @WalmartLabs, said in a statement. “We are removing these barriers by giving anyone a chance to launch their product at Walmart and reach millions of shoppers nationwide.”"
