Manchester, NH (PRWEB) December 1, 2006
The Food Inventors Network, a division of Big Idea Group (BIG), announced today that is adding four cash prizes to its A.M. Commuter Beverage Idea Hunt.
The Idea Hunt is being conducted on behalf of one of the country's largest food and beverage companies. They are seeking ideas for an innovative breakfast beverage that will appeal to men 20+ who commute. Best ideas will be considered for licensing contracts, and prizes will be awarded to the top 30 concepts. This is a rare opportunity for independent product developers to have an idea commercialized by a major food company.
In addition to the chance for a licensing contract and the prizes offered by the Hunt sponsor, Big Idea Group is offering the following incentive prizes for the A.M. Commuter Beverage Hunt:
$2000 for best entry
$1000 for 1st runner up

About the A.M. Commuter Beverage Idea Hunt
BIG's client is looking for a breakfast-on-the-go that is tasty, nutritious and easy to consume during the average commute. While many products on the market offer some of these qualities, none are designed to appeal specifically to the male commuter. The best ideas will keep in mind the needs and desires (flavors, nutrition, presentation) of male commuters ages 20 and up. Top concepts will also include thoughts about the entire product--ingredients, packaging, distribution. The company prides itself on embracing innovation and is open to a wide range of ideas, including co-branding the beverage with a non-food product.

About Idea Hunts
Idea Hunts are searches conducted on behalf of a company that is looking for innovations in a specific area. A primary reason companies turn to BIG is to increase their volume of innovative product concepts. Recognizing that many companies are stretched thin just meeting the daily demands of business and maintaining existing product lines, BIG acts as a partner resource for third-party innovation and associated services. Big Idea Group provides companies much needed product development services such as prototype development, patent work, market research, testing, and sourcing. BIG also works with both companies and inventors to develop appropriate and financially lucrative deals. BIG never charges inventors for its services, instead sharing with the inventor in licensing royalties.
