What problem does this idea/product solve or what market need does it serve?

Many artists today starve or get taken advantage of with empty promises, not ever getting in front of right professionals that actually do the hiring. The current space is too narrow and lacks organized venues online for the socialization, promotion, evaluation of talent and children are often excluded subsets of talent that are overlooked.

What attributes will make this idea/product successful? Why do you believe that those features will create success?

Talent Joe allows the average "Joe" to promote, compete, get discovered and awarded from the grassroots to star born. Our site is designed to bring the very best to the top, to get discovered, hired, and even a walk on the red carpet becoming a star. Talent Joe is a culture that uses the internet and technology for the promotion and discovery of talent. It allows industry professionals to search, find, and hire the right talent for all of their needs. Talents can get professional critiques from industry professionals and celebrities to help them improve and get valuable feedback on where they compare to others. Our site is COPPA compliant with a KidSafe certification badge in the works. Talent Joe is a safe place for kids under the age of 13 to showcase their talents. Our KidSafe badge will give parents the peace of mind that their kids privacy is protected.
