Spud’s Thoughts:

NationSwell is one of my favorite sources of inspiring news. They are constantly featuring innovative approaches to tackling pressing problems. This call for ideas is a chance to not only win funding, but more importantly get your story out there in the public. When I was first launching some of my early ventures – one of the most important milestones for us was when we get a national article published. The application looks pretty basic – so take an evening and crank it out!
