First Time Submission- Process Help

hasanali93's Avatargold

Hey All,

I'm new to EN and I have submitted my idea to a few searches. I'm currently a G4 on my idea. But it's been G4 for a week or so now. Don't really know how excited to be about it yet.

Any insight from you G5ers or G6ers on how long it took you to jump to next level?

It's a cool process... just wanted some insight on what to expect moving forward.

Hi Riyad!

This is a hard question to answer because it varies greatly. A lot of variables are in play, such as: how many searches are currently running on Edison Nation (EN), how many presentation dates are coming up, when you submitted your idea, and more.

After stage 4, EN is conducting extensive reviews so the time frame of movement seems to be longer.

For sponsored searches, please expect that all concepts will be reviewed up until the presentation date. This presentation date is usually set a few weeks following the close of the search. After the presentation has been given to our partner, they have between 45 days and 6 months to decide which ideas they'd like to move forward on.

The EN Team works very hard to move this along as quickly as we can, and we promise to keep you updated along the way.

Hope this helps to clarify and best of luck!

Hi Riyad.  I agree, it is a cool process.  I would encourage you to continue to enjoy the process while at the same time excercing the utmost patience, as the process takes time, and that time varies from search to search.
