By Steve Roatch, CEO of Twentyseven Global
Twentyseven Global is proud to announce our partnership with Dream Big America, the first-ever, live, nationally syndicated radio show, pitting vetted entrepreneur ideas against each other. Twentyseven Global developed and is maintaining Dream Big America’s online technology including the website, content management platform, voting capability and text-back feature that enables mobile users to navigate to a mobile-friendly site for voting.
Steve Roatch, CEO and president of Twentyseven Global, said, “The partnership with Dream Big America is a natural fit, given our focus on innovative technology and history of working with startup companies in the Silicon Prairie.”
The Dream Big America Show features three entrepreneurs pitching their business ideas for two minutes each, followed by a rotating panel of acclaimed business leaders who offer feedback and suggestions. The national listening audience then votes for their favorite venture. Weekly winners compete again in the Monthly Finals where America again votes for its favorite. The Finals winner receives cash and prizes.
The Kauffman Foundation‘s 1 Million Cups program, which vets budding businesses, chooses some of its best entrepreneurial presenters for consideration to appear on Dream Big America. Famed radio host Doug Stephan airs the 30-minute Dream Big America Show from 9:10 a.m. to 9:40 a.m. EST each Tuesday on his Good Day program, reaching 485 markets and more than 3.5 million weekly listeners.

Adam Taff, co-founder of Dream Big America, noted, “Twentyseven Global provided all of the expertise that was needed for this complex program including live audio feeds, automated and secure vote tallying, mobile-based voting for multiple candidates, content management and more. The speed and quality of their work enabled a very strong launch.”
