Hard Work. Honest Advice.
My idea is great! Why do I need AON Invent?
Not everyone needs help getting their innovations to market. New products make it to market every day in America. However, it is estimated that for every commercial success, there are hundreds that will never amount to more than an expensive paperweight. We help many people by rejecting those ideas that seem destined to fail, preventing these inventors from wasting huge amounts of money on consumer product development services, so they can move on to their next invention.
Why do first-time inventors usually fail?
Very often, first-time inventors focuses on the process of protecting their idea with a patent, while giving very little thought to what their next step should be. When you consider the time and expense involved in getting a patent, (which is not always needed to begin with) added to the fact that more than half of all patent applications are denied by the USPTO, receiving a patent approval is certainly a milestone, but it is often the easiest part of the process of turning an idea into a commercially successful product. Like most any endeavor, there are many benefits to working with a team that really knows the ropes… a consumer product development service with years of experience like ALL Product Design and a seasoned invention development service and invention licensing service like AON Invent… and we’re accessible.

Why do great ideas sometimes fail?
Failure is not reserved exclusively for bad ideas. Even the best ideas in the world have no intrinsic value. Value is created only by developing an idea into a tangible product or service that solves problems and enhances the lives of others. But none of that matters unless the consumer is made aware of the product and has an opportunity to purchase it in a convenient manner at a price-point that represents an acceptable perceived value.
So what does AON do?
In short, we sell TRUTH. Our first goal is to help you to evaluate your invention yourself, before you spend a penny with us or anyone else. If your self-evaluation is encouraging, and you choose to take the next step with AON Invent, we will enter into a mutual non-disclosure agreement and schedule a 20-minute consultation with one of our consumer product experts.
What happens next?
After your consultation call, our consultant will prepare a report that will be used by our staff and management to evaluate your invention and help you determine your next step. Oftentimes our suggestion is to “hang on to your money” or “head back to the drawing board to flesh-out your design.” All too often we run across inventors who spent tens of thousands of dollars trying to develop a product that had little or no chance of making them a single dollar. We are determined to not let that happen to you!
