WALMART SET TO HOST ANNUAL OPEN CALL FOR ENTREPRENEURS
Pitch Your ‘Made In The USA’ Products and Make A Deal On The Spot
Walmart is looking for a few good entrepreneurs.
The world’s largest retailer is hosting its 2016 U.S. Manufacturing Summit and Open Call to give budding entrepreneurs the opportunity to pitch their made-in-the-USA products to company buyers. The day-long event at Walmart’s Bentonville, Arkansas headquarters is slated for June 28, 2016. Registration for the competition has begun.
In January 2013, Walmart announced the company intended to help boost job creation and U.S. manufacturing through purchasing an additional $250 billion in USA-made products in the next 10 years.
“Our goal is to buy more American products,” said Cindi Marsiglio, Walmart’s vice president of U.S. Sourcing and Manufacturing. “From food to toys to apparel, and companies large and small from coast to coast, we want to make a deal with you for your U.S. made products.”
For more details about Walmart’s 2016 U.S. Manufacturing Summit and Open Call, entrepreneurs may visit www.walmart-jump.com.
The deadline to register is May 27, 2016.
