How long does the IP Review stage last?

burpbuddie's Avatar

Just wondering how long the IP Review Stage takes on average. So far the submission has proceeded pretty quick. I know that this stage is in depth. It's been 12 or 13 days since it moved to stage 6 and feel like I might have been spoiled a little by how quick my submission has moved forward in the other stages.

Secondly is there a whole team working on each submissions or individual people. 

I am extremely pleased to have found Edison Nation. It is amazing and a blessing that we live in a world where there is a company that will take your idea and turn it into something profitable. Thanks for any and all help in advance!

Hi Justin!

This is a hard question to answer because it varies greatly. A lot of variables are in play, such as: how many searches are currently running on Edison Nation (EN), how many presentation dates are coming up, when you submitted your idea, and more.

The time it takes to review your idea depends on the search specifics, as well as the volume and complexity of submissions. In general, stages 1 through 3 move quickly. We typically begin reviewing stages 4 and beyond after the search has closed. After stage 4, EN is conducting extensive reviews so the time frame of movement seems to be longer.

The EN Team works very hard to move this along as quickly as we can, and we promise to keep you updated along the way. Join the forums where you'll usually likely find a topic dedicated solely to a search. Here, you can collaborate with fellow inventors who are going down the same path as you! And don't forget to check for movement on your dashboard.

Hey Justin thank you for asking the same question that I did have. I have been sitting on IP Review Stage for the pass six weeks now. My submission was on All Searches so maybe that why is taking long compare with specific company search since they are probably in a deadline.
