How to Startle the World with Your Invention
"You might have the best technology in the world, but if you don't get it to market, it's useless." - Shaun McCarthy
The Idea-to-Market interactive flowchart (link below), will give the
aspiring inventor and entrepreneur a glimpse of the process that is required to successfully take an invention to market. The document also points out some of the challenges in getting a financial
return on their invention.
The Idea-to-Market interactive flowchart is based on the normal process that might be used for an
invention based on known science and technologies. If you are working
with overunity or ether-based technologies, there will be additional
challenges that come from both skeptics in engineering and science as well as
from the investors. You will be required to do additional proof-of-concept and validation testing to convince those who will be investing
in you and your technology.
Plan each step and do additional research that is applicable to
your invention. You do not have to do it all yourself. After a proof-of-concept, you can get other experts involved and/or sell your invention
and let someone else take the risk of getting the device to market. But in
using that option, you will give up control and a lot of potential financial returns.
Do keep in mind that NEST is at your service to help coordinate and assist you during the entire process.

NEST posts Idea-to-Market Process interactive document - There are many steps involved in bringing an idea all the way to market. Over the past several months, two of our associates at the New Energy Systems Trust have prepared a primer about this process, which would be good for all of you to be familiar with, no matter what your role may be, whether inventor, investor, entrepreneur, or customer.
