I've read here (too late for my Dallas audition) that the "Thomas" and "Edison" audition groups are separated by the degree of development of concept and prototype. I learned (again too late) that very few final participants come from the "Thomas" (rough idea/prototype) group. My Dallas prototype did not incorporate all of my product's current features, so I called it a rough prototype, was in the "Thomas" group and was ultimately rejected. I've also since heard that the "panelists" in the "Edison" group are actual representatives from major retailers. Does anyone know whom all they represent?
I'm considering investing in the creation of a "finished" prototype for the Providence, RI auditons, so I can audition in the "Edison" group. I was complimented for my presentation in Dallas, so I don't believe that was the problem. I'm wondering if the fact that I was in the "Thomas" group hurt my chances, and if making my way to the "Edison" group could help. I'm thick- skinned, so someone please tell me if this makes any sense.
