Seeking a Licensing Agent or Partner for new Pool Product

mfink's Avatar

I've read through much of these forums. Very interesting and very detailed in a lot of ways. There are so many scams out there and so many greedy "helpful" people. 

I've created a new pool product with turnarounds and video detailing the industrial design and capabilities. Because of the extreme costs in prototyping and manufacturing, personally, I am unable to move forward with the build of this product. I'm seeking a licensing Agent or partner that would help to manufacture or help to license this concept to a larger company and to launch into the retail market while I accept a royalty in return. 

Much of these inventions that people create are vastly out of budget range, but very cool ideas. We as inventors/creators just need some partnership and "real" help to move forward.

Hi Mick and Welcome to Edison Nation!

If you are interested in submitting your idea to us for licensing evaluation, you are welcome to do so by submitting your idea to one of our applicable Innovation Searches.

If you haven't already done so, I would recommend checking out the content within the Edison Nation Help Page for details on our process.

Best of luck to you!

Hi Mick,

I just wanted to affirm Michelle's response. Submitting your concept to EN for evaluation is a great place to start. It is an inexpensive way to get your idea evaluated and if it passes the test, they will seek out potential licensing partners. Worst case, you get some good feedback (assuming your are Insider which I recommend) which will allow you refine your idea and presentation materials.

EN has secured two licensing deals for me over the past few years and I have no doubt that more will come. If it doesn't work out for you on this product, you can always pursue other avenues to market by reaching out to potential companies on your own. 

I wish you success.
