QVC and HSN launched The Big Find in 2019 with in-person pitch panels in four cities nationwide. In 2020, the program received over 2,400 applications from more than 60 countries. Over the course of the last two years, more than 160 brands were chosen to launch on QVC or HSN through The Big Find, with another 90 set to launch throughout 2021 as a result of the 2020 Big Find product search. Beauty is well represented, with brands like Mented Cosmetics, Bellasonic, and Bare Pits having already seen success.

“The QVC and HSN platforms have allowed us to bring our brand to life in a way we never thought possible by being able to speak directly to the customer about how underarm care is just as important as skin care and sharing what makes our products so unique and special,” said Mila Shmurak, founder and Creator of Bare Pits, HSN Clean Beauty brand and Big Find 2020 winner. “We are so grateful to have our dreams come true by being a part of this experience and to now be a part of the QVC and HSN vendor community. We look forward to growing our business together.”

QVC and HSN form one of the world’s largest video commerce platforms, reaching more than 90 million homes in the US and 218 million worldwide via broadcast channels and millions more through over-the-top devices and services, shoppable apps, social media, digital over-the-air networks, mobile apps, and websites.

The international product search to discover entrepreneurs with the next big brand or unique product for the third annual edition of The Big Find is underway. From April 28 through June 8, entrepreneurs, creators, and inventors are invited to complete an online application. Selected candidates will be invited to pitch their products by videoconference in August to a judging panel comprised of QVC and HSN merchandising executives, program hosts, and brand founders from established QVC and HSN brands. Brands awarded “Big Tickets” will continue discussions with the QVC and HSN merchandising teams.

“The Big Find has become our flagship program for product discovery, enabling us to assess thousands of entrepreneurs worldwide and introduce dozens of fresh new brands and innovative products to our customers each year,” said Mary Campbell, Chief Merchandising Officer, Qurate Retail Group, and Chief Commerce Officer, QVC US. “Our multiplatform video commerce experience gives entrepreneurs the unique opportunity to share their personal stories with millions of customers and start turning their businesses into nationally beloved brands. We have been so inspired by the Big Find brands we have launched thus far, and we look forward to finding even more products for our customers to love.”

As part of Qurate Retail Group’s commitment to cultivating and promoting diverse, inclusive environments, QVC and HSN are working to double the representation of underrepresented businesses chosen through The Big Find. In 2020, 64 out of the 102 brands selected through the Big Find search self-identified as a woman and/or minority-owned business.

For the second year in a row RangeMe is facilitating the submission process for The Big Find. Submissions open April 28th and run through June 8th.
