Are you ready to learn about licensing agreements? While receiving an agreement can be quite invigorating and proof positive of one’s innovative abilities, an agreement, if not read and understood carefully, can end poorly for both parties. It is more than just an agreement with a company; it is a relationship that will control how you both correspond with each other, and pave the future of success for the company and inventor. There are key things to look to, language to avoid, and strategies for creating a positive experience and business relationship for all involved. Noah will dive into this and more at our next Inventors Online!

Mr. Harfouch is regularly invited to present and speak on various complex legal issues before statewide organizations and national non-profit entities.

How Do You Find & Work with Good Services that will Provide REAL Help?


“One of the hardest things inventors and entrepreneurs do is try to find good service providers they can work with. Don talks about what you can do to find the right people to work with at the right time to help get you to the next step with your product or business.” – EITV
What is Empowered Inventing? “We believe that you can learn to overcome the obstacles that look like they can’t be moved, as we’ve done it and helped others just like you. But first you have to become EMPOWERED. You have to gain the wisdom necessary to do what is necessary to become successful.” – EI
Don Skaggs is the President of Inventors Network KY, an inventors group in Kentucky.
