What to remember:  

  • Most ripoff invention services use a three-step program to steal money. They offer a free evaluation of the inventor’s product through an 800-number, take $500 or so to fund ‘research,’ and later request another $5,000 to $6,000 for more extensive ‘market research.’ 
  • One such company was forced to disclose that less than one percent of the ideas people submit ever make it to market. 
  • Turn to the local bookstore or library for legitimate advice on how to bring inventions to market. 
  • It’s important to create a working prototype of your idea, because companies won’t buy ideas from sketches. 
  • Your best bet is to find an invention broker to propose your idea to a company. 
  • Non-profit inventors clubs, which can be found in many cities, also are excellent for sharing ideas and providing encouragement.
