Learn How Edison Nation Licenses Inventor Ideas, with Aimee Carroll
Register for the Meeting
Aimee Carroll, firstname.lastname@example.org, from Edison Nation will present the 8-stages Edison Nation uses to get inventor ideas in front of companies for licensing opportunities and other opportunities for creative minds and innovators available from Edison Nation. Aimee will discuss the process that their product review team expertly uses to evaluate each idea and design submission and how they pitch selected ideas to their partners. Also, she will mention the possible payout an innovator can receive if his/her product is licensed.
Ms. Carroll will speak on how to submit ideas to their secure online portal and the various evaluation “stages” Edison Nation’s team uses and the related factors they consider including: ? Competing Products ? Uniqueness ? Retail Pricing ? Liability and Safety ? Marketability ? Manufacturing Cost ? Patentability ? Features/Benefits and Commercial-ability. In addition, Aimee will discuss submitting just an idea, a sketch, a non-patented product or a patented product and if a patent and/or a prototype is actually needed. Aimee said, "I am excited to share the great opportunities Edison Nation offers to get ideas out of people’s heads and into the hands of a strong team for potential licensing opportunities which is not a financial risk to the inventor."
Aimee said that Edison Nation's product review process is confidential and under non-disclosure agreements with all of their licensing partners and is a no risk option for inventors who don't want to go on a licensing journey alone.
Aimee Carroll is a leading team member with Edison Nation, Inc., a contributing member of the Inventor Advisory Board, and a member of the Edison Nation Leadership Team. She founded Aspire Design & Innovations, LLC in 2014 to connect aspiring small businesses, entrepreneurs, and inventors with the people and resources needed to help them succeed.

Membership Form (pdf)
Each month we have meetings to collaborate, interact, inform, and learn about inventing, marketing, manufacturing, protecting, and learning how to succeed with inventions. The mission of the Alamo Inventors is to be a compass, resource and inspiration for inventors and entrepreneurs as they launch their concepts to market.
What We Do
We provide monthly meetings where members can meet and discuss their ideas, problems and solutions, talk with community resource members, and hear guest speakers talk about their real world experiences.
This provides a forum where this information may be shared and discussed to expand and educate the membership of the group.
Additional on-line resources are available to help direct the inventor and entrepreneur to the local and national organizations to help them as their ideas progress from concept to market.
