These are the stories of the people that are afflicted with creating the next great products and services that are going to change lives - not just in America, but worldwide. We're going to tell the stories of the next great beer producer, products and apparel makers, and the stories of people that don't accept the status quo and that want to make things better.

Jul 3, 2017

We were honored to welcome Cindi Marsiglio and Latriece Watkins to the show - representing the company that knows scale better than any other: Walmart. We visited during their Open Call event which Cindi emceed and was kicked off with speeches from Asa Hutchinson (Arkansas Gov.), Doug McMillion (CEO) and other Walmart leadership. The audience was 500 different US product manufacturers looking to get on-shelf of the world's largest retailer.

Cindi is the VP of US Manufacturing, and is overseeing the deployment of Walmart's commitment to allocate $250B in U.S. Manufacturing, and Latriece is the SVP of Merchandising Consumables and OTC - which means her team is helping educate and on-board these 500 potential new Walmart vendors. The future is still bright for US manufacturers!
