Roger Brown wrote an article for us "Get Your Idea to Market WITHOUT an Invention Submission Firm" which offers some helpful advice.

http://inventorspot.com/without_an_invention_submission_firm

In it, he suggests we get together a list of the companies that are inventor friendly that an inventor can contact directly.

So this is the place where we can all do that. If you come across a company that is open to hearing of new invention ideas and is a good potential partner, please share your find here.

Thanks :)
