Ethics Committee

An Honest Invention Company

At AON Invent we realize that inventors have good reason to be skeptical of invention submission companies. But even after maintaining a stellar record for customer satisfaction for more than a decade, we're not letting up. We are committed to our pursuit of continuous improvement and higher standards for the invention submission and service industry.  

Now, we're not saying, or even implying that AON Invent is the only honest invention company. We believe there are other legitimate businesses assisting inventors in a variety of ways. All we can say for sure is that even after all these years, we have never been notified of a customer complaint or threatened with a litigious action. Not even once. 

We constantly remind ourselves that continued success depends upon maintaining that sterling reputation, among inventors and product-development teams alike. We are committed to always acting in the best interest of our customers, by running an honest invention company, and realize that even one misstep into a "gray area" could compromise the reputation we have worked so hard to establish. 

For this reason, from the very beginning, we created an independent Ethics Committee to oversee our operations. This committee is chaired by attorney Susan Hoeller, who is highly sought-after in her areas of expertise, and we are very excited to have her on board. You can read Susie's bio below, and be confident that you have found an honest invention company.
