Thomas Edison & raw eggs?!

Week of June 24, 2019                             Newsletter Issue #15

In the IGA Newsletter, you’ll find a bi-monthly update on all things inventing including success stories, inventor resources, events, and other content focused on reinvigorating your inventing spirit!

Inventor Success Stories

Congratulations Julie Kos on licensing your food product invention!

“I had spent tens of thousands of dollars with business consultants trying to license my product prior to finding inventRight with little to show for it but mounting costs and frustration. I was ready to give up… but inventRight was my saving grace!

I signed up for one-on-one coaching and received more useful information and guidance from my coach Terry on the first call than I had received from all three of the business consultants I’d worked with to that point.” – Julie Kos

Licensing a food product is difficult to say the least. We commend your hard work, persistence, and success. Congrats!

IGA Spotlight

Visit the Thomas Edison National
Historical Park in New Jersey!

“Thomas Edison’s home and laboratory are a step back in time, when machines were run by belts and pulleys and music was played on phonographs.  Where to the passerby, the buildings betray little evidence of the industries they once started.  Discover where America’s greatest inventor changed our world forever.” – Thomas Edison Museum
