Inventor Coaches, Consultants, Mentors & Resources

Inventors do you need help?

Here’s an inventor’s directories of coaches, consultants, mentors and resources to help guide you on your journey.

Bringing a product to market is not an easy task. It takes determination, persistence, knowledge and sometimes help.

Please note this is not an endorsement of any one person or company, but just a resource. Make sure you always do a background check on any individual or company you decide to work with.
