Sorry for posting this topic in the wrong forum. I'll begin a new string in the patent area.
I sure wish there were a local club where someone could have everyone sign a contract for silence and there get help from like inventors who have been there and done that.
This site has encouraged me...and yet has stressed to me the many hurdles associated with bringing an idea to market. I can only imagine all the awesome ideas that have gone by the wayside or merely sit in peoples minds because the process is too confusing to the newbie..thus nothing is done...nothing.
I see these...to me, stupid, ideas that come to market and I think..'My idea is better than that idea - how did they get their idea to market?'...but they had someone to encourage them, to help them along by pointing them in the right direction.
Just yesterday i called an Inventors Trade Show...of the 6,000 booth presentors only 10 presentors have made their 1,295-1,795 booth fees back on their inventions!!!!! Yep, I asked how many actually benefit from displaying their information and have their product seriously looked at....and those were the numbers the trade show operators shared with me.....10 over the last 4 years of trade shows held once per year! So...lol...what are my chances!? I'm not giving up....yet.
