Stephen Key and Andrew Krauss from Inventright.have some of the best information I’ve seen on getting your product ideas licensed. I followed their methods to license a simple candy idea. Unfortunately, my product idea only made it to sample stage, as the product couldn’t be made cheaply enough. What I like about Stephen and Andrew’s approach is that they don’t talk about spending loads of money on patents. Instead, they give you a step by step process from initial idea to presenting to potential companies without spending a fortune.
One Simple Idea Books
Stephen has several great books as well as an Inventright Course. The two books I really like are both called One Simple Idea. The yellow version of the book is for anyone wanting to license their product idea for a royalty. The benefit of licensing is that you don’t pay for manufacturing, instead, you receive a small commission on each product that sells. The red book version of One Simple Idea is ideal if you are looking to manufacture your product idea yourself.
Inventright also has a series of free videos available with advice on getting your product idea to market.
