At AON Invent we realize that inventors have good reason to be skeptical of invention submission companies. Our continued success depends upon maintaining a sterling reputation with inventors and product-development teams alike. While we are committed to always acting in the best interest of our customers, by running an honest invention company, we realize that even one misstep in a "gray area" could compromise the reputation we have worked so hard to build.
For this reason we have 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.
