Protecting your idea and preventing others from copying it is the first step that you should consider in the invention process.

By using our patent network, you will benefit from patent searches, patent and design registrations.
We understand the importance of designing commercially friendly products and for that reason we highlight our Industrial Design stage as one of our key services. We will sketch your idea into a concept where we can visualize how it will potentially look as a final product.

Our Rapid Prototype Service is second to none. We work with you to ensure that we remain within your budget throughout the process, while getting the best working prototype using one of our many available options. No prototype is too big or too small as we offer a wide range of prototype options.
Licensing is an option that many inventors choose because they do not wish to be directly involved in manufacturing the product. During this stage, we help you design and develop your product in addition to providing professional marketing material for use in approaching potential companies or investors.
We offer a one-stop solution for all of your manufacturing requirements. Our experts offer valuable insight to ensure that manufacturing costs remains low, but quality remains high.

We work with you to develop an engaging Crowd Funding campaign to raise funds for manufacturing your product. Not only will we design a professional product, we can also make a functional prototype that resembles the final manufactured product. By taking your idea to the next level, your campaign will look professional and viable.
Understanding the different options available to launch your invention into the market will either make or break your invention. We often encourage inventors to prove their product will sell prior to approaching large stores or retailers. We can help market and generate targeted ads for your product to guide you on the path to success.

We are not only a reseller of one of the world’s best quality printers, we use the same printers to assist our inventors. Taking a design and seeing it come to life before your eyes in a matter of hours is inventing at its greatest. Ask about our 3D Printers.
Selecting the right factory to work with during the manufacturing process is probably one of the most important things to consider when entering this stage. We can assist you through this daunting period by performing in-depth factory evaluations in addition to negotiating prices on your behalf.
Our Project Managers not only work diligently to ensure a smooth design, prototype and manufacturing process, they constantly work to ensure that your project is running on time and within budget. Using detailed Gantt Charts allows us to be proactive rather than reactive in a process where time and money go hand in hand.
Our popular Invention Review provides inventors with a specific and technical breakdown of their idea.
