Both QVC US and HSN have teamed up to announce the return of The Big Find®, which is a global search in order to discover unique products and brands as well as the entrepreneurs that make them happen. Those who are found to be the best are given the rare opportunity of sharing their journey with millions of audience members tuning in.

According to a statement given by Mary Campbell, Chief Merchandising Officer of QVC US (among many other titles), "Our business has always been rooted in discovering and nurturing authentic, emerging brands, and our customers have really enjoyed getting to know the many inspiring entrepreneurs and products we discovered through last year's Big Find. We're excited about building on that success with this year's search. By adding new categories, we look forward to creating even more opportunities for entrepreneurs with unique products and compelling stories to work with us in curating differentiated product experiences for our customers."

The Big Find occurred last year as well and grossed more than 650 entries from around the globe. Entrants came from 43 US states, as well as 12 countries including Australia, Germany, Switzerland, South Africa, U.K., India, Canada, and more. Over 65 of the aspiring young brands in their respective industries of either fashion or beauty were chosen to show off their products on many platforms owned by both HSN and QVC throughout this year as a result of this big search. The companies that were included were Act & Acre, Alkaglam, Mented Cosmetics, Follain, Valencia Key, Have Some Fun Today, and more.

"Participating in The Big Find and becoming a part of the QVC and HSN vendor community has been an incredible journey. The platforms have allowed us to share our story with a new set of customers and bring our brand to life in a way we would not be able to achieve through traditional retail channels. The teams at QVC and HSN have guided our way throughout this entire experience, providing us with invaluable feedback and support. We have already seen strong growth to our business, and we are looking forward to continued success together," said KJ Miller, Co-Founder of Mented Cosmetics.
