13th Oct, New York: .Store Domains, the leading domain extension for online stores, recently announced the launch of its #IdeaToStore Contest at Sponsored by Shopify,  the contest invites to-be entrepreneurs to share their ideas for starting an online store. Participants can win cash prizes up to $30,000, along with exclusive Q&A and mentoring from the judges. The grand prize winner also stands a chance to be on David Meltzer’s 2 Minute Drill aired on Bloomberg TV and Amazon Prime. 

Judges for the contest include Seth Godin, Entrepreneur, Best-selling Author, & Speaker; Natalie Ellis, CEO & Co-founder, BossBabe; Danielle Canty, President & Co-founder, BossBabe; John Lee Dumas (JLD), Founder & Host, Entrepreneurs on Fire podcast; and Neha Naik, Sr Director of Channel Partnerships at Radix. 

“The #IdeaToStore Contest is a neat idea,” said Seth Godin. “It gives folks who have been dreaming of getting online a push to actually turn their dreams into reality. The move to online commerce has created a wide-open space for people to do work that matters for people who care.”

Through this contest, .Store Domains is furthering its commitment to making it easier for to-be entrepreneurs to take the first step towards turning their idea into an online store. Speaking about the contest, Suman Das, Sr Brand Director, .Store Domains, said, “We created the #IdeaToStore Contest because we realised that there are so many incredible ideas that never come to the fore because of lack of validation, mentorship, seed money, and even motivation. We have included all of those components into this contest in a way that’s exciting and fun.”

To submit an entry, participants have to sign up on the #IdeaToStore contest website and subsequently post their ideas on Instagram. The entries will be judged on the basis of their creativity and engagement on the Instagram post before moving to the next round where select finalists will present their ideas live to the judges. 

The contest will accept entries until 14th November and winners will be announced on 23rd November on .Store Domains’ Instagram handle, @getdotstore
