There is also a mentorship aspect to the program in which the winner will have access to Comcast Executives, Sam Schwartz and Louis Toth, as well as other well-known and accomplished entrepreneurs like Robert Irvine and Patrick Fitzgerald. The company has selected 32 applicants out of thousands to be their regional finalists and go on to compete for the grand prize. Out of the 32 finalists, one will be voted on for the grand prize of $20,000. Voting will be held on April 27th, 2015.

With a bit of irony, one of the Comcast finalists, Reality Crowd TV, (RCTV) is also a company with a mission to help entrepreneurs, and has been doing so since its inception. Founded by, Manolis Sfinarolakis, in December of 2013, Reality Crowd TV engaged in a nationwide tour across the United States which included speaking engagements in Connecticut, New York, Boston, Washington D.C., Atlanta, Jacksonville, Austin, Houston, Denver, and Seattle in an effort to evangelize the nascent crowdfunding ecosystem and the many participants in it.

RCTV plans to use the regional prize of $10,000, as well as the grand prize of $20,000 (if awarded), to add new features to their community, revamp their website presence, and purchase software systems to help manage their ever growing business inquiries. They also plan on applying for additional grant programs that will support the hiring of employees in the Northeast region of the United States.

Earlier this year, RCTV launched its new Virtual Incubator and Crowdfunding Network (VICN).

VICN is a Quora ( like platform designed for its users to draw upon the collective knowledge of the community to help entrepreneurs learn all the nuances of launching a start-up company. The platform functions like a social media site that allows entrepreneurs to connect with each other to share knowledge and resources.

RCTV will host their Virtual Crowdfunding Summit later this year as well, which will have many of the nation’s leading minds in crowdfunding speaking at the summit.
