Our Mission: Help you bring your ideas to market and get the best deal possible.

Our Story

Founders Stephen Key and Andrew Krauss have been helping license ideas for over 15 years. Stephen Key spent his career developing and licensing products in many different industries. From the novelty gift industry to pharmaceuticals, he has become the global expert in product licensing. When he met Andrew Krauss, president of the leading inventors group in the country, they agreed to use their combined experience to start helping others who wanted to develop their ideas into products. Today, many of these people have become inventRight coaches, and the inventRight team has a background as diverse as Stephen’s.

Is inventRight a Good Fit For You?

We coach students who have already brought products to market as well as total beginners. Many of our students come to us and have already begun developing their idea, meaning they’ve started or completed the patent process or have already tried to venture on their own. Others come to us with just an idea and the ambition to bring it to market. Our team of coaches has a diverse background and is designed to allow you to develop your idea at any stage in the process. Our students are located in over 40 countries across the globe. Listen to some of their stories here.

While we have helped people from all over the world bring ideas to market in a wide variety of industries, the inventRight one-on-one coaching program isn’t for everyone. We want to work with people we know we can help, and are committed to investing in our students. Like all good relationships, it’s a two-way street! We want you to be as committed to both the program and your ideas as we are. Your success is our success!

Co-Founders Stephen Key and Andrew Krauss discuss why you should join the inventRight One-On-One Coaching Program in the series of videos below.

The inventRight Student Community

With students in over 40 countries participation is not limited to residents of the United States. We are often asked, “Does this work outside of the United States? Can I participate in your program if I live outside of the U.S.?” Our answer is always: Absolutely!

Open innovation is thriving worldwide. Licensing is a global opportunity and you are invited to participate. Our international students work on filing and licensing their intellectual property in the United States before moving forward with licensing intellectual property in the country they reside.

We work with our students the same way no matter where they are located across the globe: Via phone and online communication, email, and our easy-to-use coaching session booking system. Time zones are not an issue.

The inventRight one-on-one coaching program has helped students from all corners of the world! We have had the privilege of working with students in Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia, Japan, France, Zimbabwe, and dozens of others.

Stephen has had the pleasure of being invited to speak about licensing and the inventRight one-on-one coaching program in Australia and Northern Ireland. He always looks forward to sharing his knowledge with other people.

inventRight Design Studio

inventRight Design Studio is a new program offered exclusively to our students. Design Studio gives you an online portal to get your digital marketing materials – from sell sheets to full showcase videos – all in one place. We use our own design team, which guarantees that you get high quality, inventRight-approved digital marketing materials that are viewable and shareable on any device. An intuitive online order platform and companion digital course guides you through all of the steps to gathering and creating the information you need to create strong sales tools. Your coach will be there to guide you through the process too, so even total beginners can be comfortable ordering for the first time. inventRight Design Studio provides you with easy and affordable access to line drawings, renderings, digital sell sheets, and showcase videos to help you sell your ideas.

Instructional materials.

A 200+ page program guidebook. Everything Stephen and Andrew know about licensing ideas has been written down in an easy-to-read guidebook.

Access to hundreds of instructional videos. Previous webinars are stored online for you to watch, including invaluable classes such as “Learn to Patent Search Like the Pros" and “Design a Winning Sell Sheet” — as well as classes on absolutely every other aspect of licensing and selling your ideas for royalties.

How We Help You…

Evaluate your product. Should you pick one project or another? What companies should you call and where do you find them? We help you determine which of your ideas you should move forward with as well as teach you how to invent with the market in mind.

Design your marketing materials. What do you really need to intrigue a potential licensee? We will teach you how to create powerful, effective sell sheets as well as short promotional videos — the tool our students are increasingly utilizing with great success. These tools will do the selling communicate your products uses, benefits and value. They make it so you don’t have to be a pitchman. Really, you’re just delivering a package — a package that effectively does the selling for you.

Learn how to write a provisional patent application. By watching the video trainings done by attorney Damon Kali, you will learn how to start licensing your own PPAs. Filing intellectual property can get expensive, quick. Learning how to file PPAs that have value and stop workarounds on your own has the potential to save you anywhere from $1,500-$3,000 if not much more. Once you file a PPA ($65) you have the right to mark your product “patent pending”.

Negotiate contracts. After negotiating countless agreements on behalf of his students (as well as his own), Stephen knows what to look out for. He has passed down his invaluable insight to Senior Licensing Coach David. When you’re close to cutting a deal, David will help you evaluate it and determine whether or not it’s the right deal for you. You will learn the ins and outs of contract language, including minimum guarantees, royalty rates, term sheets, and important clauses to ensure you get the best deal possible. And, believe it or not, once you experience a few deals with David guiding you, you’ll get it — you’ll be able to tackle negotiations, the most difficult part of licensing, on your own.

Flat Fee. The inventRight one-on-one coaching program is designed to empower you to navigate the entire licensing process from an idea in your head to a deal on the table. We care about the success of every student, and that’s why we don’t take a percentage of anything you make, and will never surprise you with hidden costs. Our flat-fee covers you for an entire year. The best part? What you’ve learned never goes away, and our coaches are always here if you need them. Once you’ve finished your first year as an inventRight student, you’ll always be able to renew the program again at a reduced rate.

Our goal is to enable you to do every aspect of licensing on your own after your experience with us, for life! We make sure to give you the resources you need so that companies will want to work with you. Experience the difference that personalized and professional coaching makes with inventRight!
