    I do not know if I am contacting the right office. I have an idea but have no way of building my idea and have no money. I think my idea is great and will be used by many people. I have not seen anything like my idea any where. I do not know where to start and who to contact. Thanks for your time.

    What can you suggest to help get my invention the Hide A Hook (HAH) to get selling better.

    I have had alot of expensive non help from the sales people at a TV station, a radio station and a newspaper.

    I have signed up with Invent Help and after over 2 years of their service, very little sales or response.

    I need someone who knows what to do and am willing to partner up as I have invested over $35,000 in this idea to date. I have an injection mold made and have 4,500 packaged HAH’s ready for sale.

    Would like to speak to someone about this invention. I have trusted experience marketing people in the past and have spent thousands for very little in return.


    Thank you

    I have an invention idea and am looking for help to get it to the market – it’ll fit in all age groups and for all genders. No products on the market like it yet. Please contact me if we can work something out. Thanks in advance for your time.

    Good morning,

    I submitted a completed questionnaire on August 18th and forwareded same to your site.

    Would you kindly advise when I may be hearing from you so that I might be able to forward additional information to you, or better still present the product (PetBib) to you for consideration.

    Thanks you in advance.

    To whom it may concern,

    I have had an idea for a few years now and don’t know how I would get it out there.I think this idea would benefit every age young and old and has to do with daily oral hygene.
    I would appreicate the opportunity to have you take a look at my idea.

    Thank you,
    Todd Gray

    I have completed concept and design work on a certain type of toothbrush that brushes teeth the way dentists say they should be brushed. It has an induction charging stand with UV sterilizer light. I’ve run into a sourcing problem regarding the mini cylindrical brushes I require. Frankly I’m amazed that none of the big suppliers of this type of product have come up with this design. None of the present electric offerings do the job quite right according to dentists I know. There is a lot to it but I’d guess that any well equipped and staffed shop could turn one out quite quickly. Can you help me?

  15. Rajiv Tandon on May 22nd, 2011 1:59 pm

    I have just learned about this website through online news and I am very excited to know that now simple ideas can be turned into useful products. I have couple of ideas too which can turn into products if they get proper support .

    I hope that somebody will contact me for the same.


  16. Ken on May 22nd, 2011 2:12 pm

    I have a invention that would not only create revenue but more importantly save lives.

  17. Randy on May 22nd, 2011 4:25 pm

    I have an excellent product concept. Would like to talk to someone at IBC about it. can call 780-805 1239

  18. William Michel on May 22nd, 2011 6:35 pm

    I have an idea and a working prototype, that I have tested and works. it’s a fishing item that allows shoreline fishermen to fish off shore , that would permit one too troll without the need for a boat. easy to use in any place that has a slight current. no need to fish from a bridge.

  19. Isline Stevens on May 22nd, 2011 6:56 pm

    i have an invention that i think is great for retail and help poeple a lot, i had it for a very long time now but didn’t know where to go with it. you help and input would be greatly appreciated.

  20. dennis somers on May 22nd, 2011 7:06 pm

    i have a few good ideas that i would like to put to market. i have invented many things for my company to make are work less labour intensive. i know my ideas will make money but dont have time to do all that needs to be done. thank you

  21. Terry McKay on May 22nd, 2011 7:23 pm

    I have a sports-related idea that I’ve used in hard copy. It does work very well, but now it needs computerization.
    A computer instructor told me that if I could computerize it, it would be worth a lot of money, however, she didn’t have the necessary expertise to help me develope it further.
    The players that I have used it on, have always looked forward to this drill, it made practice a good thing.
    I even coached a team of 7 players, where 10 is a minimum to run a good pratice.
    This ststem will give a player confidence, develope teamwork, technique, and with computerization, it will be portable through distance and through time.
    Stats will be recorder in hard copy, then can be transferred to CD.
    These stats can be compared to the rest of the team for that practice session.
    They can be used to track a player’s progress, or lack of. Then, a coach can suggest different techniques to improve the stats.
    If a player moves to another city, he/she can bring the stats on a Cd to the new team.
    Coaches can keep track of a player’s stats from a thousand miles away.
    I am just like many other inventors, I don’t have the money to develope this plan. One place would develope it for $15,000 – $20,000, money that idon’t have

  22. Denis Cayer on May 22nd, 2011 8:04 pm

    Hi I have a terrific idea, made a prototype of it and I was really amazed by the outcome and I am sure you will as well. It can be used by children, Moms and Dads, Grandparents, actually, anyone in the world. I did go see a patent lawyer about 8 years ago but I am stuck right here. Your advice would be very much appreciated.

    Thank yhou

    To Whom It May Concern,

    I have two product ideas that I would love to have you take a look at, please. They are designed to make using a laptop safer and easier for people to use, especially men.

    I hope to hear from you very soon.

    Thank you,

    Would like to know if you could have a look at my idea. tks.

  27. Hye on June 8th, 2011 10:58 pm


    I have invented a product. I have paid loth’s of money to a big well know American Organization to build the proto-type. I have paten pending on my invention. This company is trying to get my invention licence. they have contacted one manufacturer for licencing which turn down my invention. They are now targeting another Company for perhaps licening.

    I feel that my product is a great product that will do well on the market. I have a contract with this company and I am hoping that the target Company will like my Idia and licence it. Anyway, I have some other great idia’s that I would like to try and invent my self. I was wondering if you could help me with these great idias that are wanted on the market.

    please feel free to drop me a line and let me know if your Organization will be able to assest me!!! Thanks a great deal

    creatively yours, V,

    i have three inventions that i would like to see on the production line,when i was employed i was a const. millwright for 25 years my mechancal ideas are quite sane.the one that is most exciting is a portable fire hydrant that can be used to wet down an area of 1500 hundred feet radius to drop in a river and and drench the immediate area to stop fire from advancing when you look at an aerial view of the rivers you can use to put up a firewall.the hydrant would have to be transported by helicopter and then put into operation by remote control,this is a very notable part of this invention a pump is not needed which would weigh 2500 lb.with a p.s.i. of 1750 the gross weight would be 1500-2000 lb.and the dept.of lands and forest choppers can lift this much.i have submitted this plan to three provinces and received compliments but they were not willing to begin production…advice or financial backing is being sought after. thankyou for any response. jim phone info in vancouver
