The first step in the product development process is to gather information about your invention. You can send us anything you feel will help us understand what it is and how it is supposed to work. This allows us to develop a clear understanding of your goals.
You’re the Expert
We know how to develop products, but in the beginning you know far more about your product than we do. After all, it’s your invention. So you need to get us up to speed.
Why is this important? Every detail you give use about your product helps to reduce development costs. It sets us on the right track and it assures we focus our skills on your goals.
Here are some guidelines for submitting product information.
Give your product a name. The name of your product can be a temporary name. It just helps to call it something so we can talk about it during the development process.
Write a description of what the product is and how you want it to perform. Include all the characteristics of your product you feel makes it a good product. Your short description should explain how your product is useful or beneficial to the end user.
List competitive products if any. There may be products on the market that are similar. It’s helpful to list these products and point out their shortcomings and/or what makes them a good product. You may also want to make short comments about how your product is better than the competitors’ products.
Sketches, Drawings, Prototypes, and Mock Ups also help. Anything you can provide that shows the general physical characteristics of your product helps. Hand drawn sketches are fine. They don’t have to be drawn perfectly.
NON-DISCLOSURE AGREEMENT (NDA)
A Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) protects your information from being used to make a profit for someone else. So it binds us from profiting from your idea, and it keeps us from giving information about your product to anyone else without your approval.
So a Non-Disclosure Agreement legally keeps your information safe and defines you as the rightful owner.
We wouldn’t be in business this long (founded in 2000) if we didn’t protect our customer’s proprietary information. So from our perspective misusing your information isn’t even considered.
That said, you need to feel comfortable giving us information about your invention. So take a minute to fill out the Non-Disclosure Agreement Form.
Once you’ve generated and signed the NDA, email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also submit your own NDA. Our Engineering Manager will sign and email the NDA back to you within 2 business days.
