Portland, OR August 15, 2017 - Portland’s designer and entrepreneur, Courtney Karsted, (www.grandpoobox.com) is competing on Steve Harvey’s FUNDERDOME, Sunday, August 20, 9:00 to 10:00 p.m. ET/PT on ABC Television Network. Ms. Karsted is playing for $100,000 from the FUNDERDOME competition. Steve Harvey's FUNDERDOME, by Mark Burnett, is a seed-funding competition reality series where two budding entrepreneurs go head-to-head to win over a live studio audience to fund their ideas, products or companies.

The Grand PooBox™ is [...]
