Ketel One Wants to Know: is Your Idea Worth $100,000?

The following post is brought to you by Ketel One® Vodka. Our partners are hand-picked by the Design Milk team because they represent the best in design.

Do you have a great idea? Think it’s a game changer? Want to win $100,000?

Ketel One® Vodka has launched a new US nationwide contest called “A Gentleman’s Call: In Pursuit of an Idea that Matters” that I can totally get behind. They’re looking for one innovative, game-changing idea to invest $100,000 into (yes, you read that correctly). Ketel One will assist one lucky gentleman (or gentlewoman) whose idea “champions the lifestyle of the modern gentleman” and raises the “behavioral bar” of society, helping turn their dream into a reality.

Actor and philanthropist Ian Somerhalder, Co-Founder and CEO of the Movember Foundation, Adam Garone and celebrated actor Carlos Ponce – three men who embody the essence of a modern gentleman – will lead this endeavor by defining the values of the ultimate gentleman’s competition through their day-to-day lives.

The best of the best (top 5) will be chosen and posted on, and consumers will be able to vote to select the Grand Prize Winner.

So go share your genius at but hurry – entries close on July 29th. Click here for complete contest rules.
