Search Launched to Discover Talent: 'Launching People'

Do you ever watch those talent shows on telly, see the winners realise their dream and wish that someone would discover you like that? Maybe you have an idea for a food, music, photography or film-related project but at the moment, you just can't see how you're going to get it off the ground. 

Well, there's good news. Samsung is teaming up with a group of mentors - to make a television programme that will be aired later this year. The mentors will choose the people they'll work with and, with the help of Samsung's technology, will use their experience and knowledge to help them realise their ambitions. Here's the introduction video:

Gizzi Erskine is the mentor for the food side. She talks about how although 'simple ideas can be the best' a simple idea with some 'glitter' on will be even better. And she's looking for someone who doesn't mind breaking the rules on food. Check out what Gizzi's looking for in this video: 

If this sounds like you, and you have an idea you'd like a bit of help with to get going, then all you need to do is apply, by making a 2-minute video, at Maybe you have an idea for a new food brand or product, or a restaurant or food concept that you'd like to see launched.

I'm actually really excited about this, as the chance to be mentored by Gizzi and also have access to the latest technology to help, will be a huge step in allowing one person realise their food-related dream, whatever that will be. Maybe it will even be you (yes, you).


"I want to see someone that has a serious passion for the industry - I want to understand their passion and be able to see it and feel it. I want to show that you don't have to be conventional to be successful. I'm looking for someone who's happy to break the rules - and maybe teach me a thing or two along the way. The simple ideas can be the best. But a simple idea with a bit of glitter on it is far more exciting."
