How inventRight Helps You
2022 Webinar Series
Giving Back to the Inventing Community
At inventRight, our goal for the past two decades has been to educate inventors how to successfully commercialize their inventions. We believe so strongly in this mission, we have produced thousands of articles, videos, videos, blogs, educational webinars, and speaking events.
When you help one inventor, you help all inventors.
We believe it takes a team and a community supporting each other to achieve our goals and we also believe you cannot give enough.
Stephen Key is the world’s leading expert on how to license a product idea and is a 2018-2019 AAAS-Lemelson Invention Ambassador.

He defended his patent portfolio against one of the world’s largest toy companies in federal court and later sold it for millions of dollars. He is currently the IP strategist for Fishbone, a sustainable can-carrying system that is 100% biodegradable. His inventions have received more than 20 industry awards.
In 1999, he cofounded inventRight, which has helped inventors from more than 65 countries harness the power of open innovation and the licensing business model to commercialize their intellectual property.

Andrew was born and raised in California’s Silicon Valley, where he grew up being surrounded by passionate innovators. As the Co-Founder and the day-to-day manager of inventRight’s operations, Andrew has seen it all—and coached inventors through it.
“At this point, our members have experienced every scenario you can possibly imagine,” he said. “Whether it’s communicating with a company that has never licensed an idea from an outside inventor before or signing a multi-million dollar deal, we’ve done it.”
He began coaching inventors over 23 years ago as the President of the Inventors’ Alliance group in the San Francisco Bay Area. His expertise in the field of innovation was federally recognized as an advisor to a presidents council on what changes could be made to help the United States Patent and Trademark Office better serve independent inventors. He has also been featured as a licensing expert at USPTO conferences.
