Inventing Success Stories
Congratulations Brayton Bushby
on licensing another product idea!
“For this particular product (which is in the exercise industry) I focused heavily on studying the marketplace and inventing for the marketplace more so than on my previous products. I really wanted to make sure I was solving a problem, and in a unique and better way. This decision made a big difference. By making sure my product started off on a strong foundation, the following Steps happened much faster. I was able to go from idea to signed contract in just a few months.” – Brayton Bushby

Left to right: Andrew Krauss (IGA Co-Founder), Daniel Braisted (Vegas Inventors), Alix Reed (ABR Innovations), Vinny Spotleson (District Director At Congresswoman Dina Titus’s office)
Andrew Krauss visited the office of Congresswoman Dina Titus in Las Vegas, Nevada on Feb 19, 2019 to advocate for independent inventors and stronger patent laws as a representative of IGA. Andrew is a longtime supporter of inventors and the Co-Founder of IGA. Excitingly, District Director Vinny Spotleson made it very clear that Congresswoman Titus is “for the little guy.” Andrew was accompanied by Daniel Braisted, leader of the Vegas Inventors Group, and Alix Reed of ABR Innovations.
This meeting came about because of the diligent efforts of activist Josh Malone. Malone is the inventor of Bunch o Balloons, which was the #1 selling outdoor/sports toy again in 2018. Find out more about IGA’s efforts to strengthen patent rights for independent inventors: http://inventleaders.org
