Launching Ideas, Inc., established in 2007, has a reputation for providing high quality design and support for inventors. Regardless of the product’s current stage of development.
America has always had an inventive spirit; one of its strengths has come from the protection it has provided those that invent. Unfortunately, many who have marketable ideas find themselves lost, frustrated and discouraged at some stage of their ideas’ life cycle. Whether it’s in the beginning phase of design, patenting, manufacturing, market testing, or production of the final product, Launching Ideas is here to help.
Most successful inventions were first scratched out on paper- or a napkin. How do you get that sketch into a format that can be understood by people in industry? Putting those ideas into computer aided design (CAD) software allows for the early product to be analyzed and modified without having to pay the material and labor costs for each build-it, test-it, redesign-it iteration. In short CAD negates much of the costs associated with early prototyping.
Eventually the CAD runs its course and the next step is to build the product. Though it will need to be refined further before selling, it’s a giant leap forward!
This stage is the most difficult process. Most inventors never attended law school nor have knowledge of the US Patent Office patenting process, nor know at what stage patent protection should even be considered. Far too many patent too early and spend their development capital on protection to find that as the idea developed, the product had developed outside the scope of their patent. This is devastating.
Unfortunately there are patent attorneys and patent protection groups that prey on inventors’ fears of losing their beloved invention and convince them to spend unneeded capital on protection the moment the idea blossoms. To make it worse, the protection they sell typically is so specific it doesn’t provide the protection the inventor needed. They provided a patent, yes- but not the protection.
Your invention is ready for market- now what? Do you know where to get ten thousand widgets to connect to twenty thousand doo-dads and who can assemble and ship them? Most manufacturing has moved overseas due to US regulation, so this part of the process is now very foreign to most would-be successful product developers. Knowing where to go and whom to avoid is key to getting this later step finalized.
