I Have Interest From a Company!

Now What?

Congratulations! You’ve created a product that a company wants. You’ve spent time and energy protecting it and building prototypes, and now you’re getting ready to review and sign a licensing agreement.

Time to celebrate? Not so fast. Negotiating a good licensing agreement can be a difficult and tedious process, even for the most seasoned professionals.

Communicating the terms that you desire while maintaining a good relationship with your licensee and its representatives is an art that can only be mastered with experience and time.

inventRight has been coaching inventors through licensing negotiations for more than 20 years. We’ve seen the thousands of different contracts, scenarios, and pitfalls that can befall independent inventors.

By putting our experience on your side, you’ll have the best chance of:
- Receiving the highest royalty rate for your invention.
- Successfully negotiating guaranteed minimums.
- Having ownership of all improvements to your invention.
- Making sure the contract is honored.

Put your best foot forward with inventRight’s negotiations experts working for you and your product idea. Set up a consultation today!

"My motto is to surround myself with highly experienced partners whom will help me reach my goals and at the same time provide value in return. When negotiating contracts there are three main tools which will help you to negotiate successfully. Experience, desire to make a deal and knowing when to stand your ground. Stephen’s experience and insight into how to work together to create a deal that works so that both parties can be successful is crucial in bringing the deal to a close. It’s rarely an easy task but with Stephen’s understanding of the entire process from product development to IP to solidifying your new partnership, Stephen provides incredible value in his experience and is second-to-none."
