Inventing classes

Radio Hat, invented a hundred years agoInventing Level One:

This is a four-week class that I teach, designed to make you a pro at “ideating.”  Each class includes a lecture, in-class exercises, in-class presentation practice (inventors have to be able to pitch and present), plus take-home materials and homework assignments.

  • Week One:  Inventors can’t live on just one idea.  How NOT to be a (broke) one-hit wonder, and how to generate a VOLUME of ideas.
  • Week Two: Testing your ideas to see which ones to develop.
  • Week Three:  Prototypes.
  • Week Four:  Protecting your ideas.

 

By the end of the class, you will have several new invention ideas plus at least one prototype, ready to go.

The sooner you start, the sooner you can quit your day job.  Price is $240.00.  Class starts on Thursday, June 6, 2013.

So you have a protected prototype and several more ideas raring to go.  Now what?

  • Week One:   Licensing basics and how to choose the right business model (or licensing deal) for each of your ideas.
  • Week Two:  Names, pitches, and stories — sell your ideas by engaging people’s interest.
  • Week Three:  For those ideas that you choose to keep for yourself — building it (or sourcing the manufacturing), selecting distribution channels, and basic marketing of the ideas.
  • Week Four:   For those ideas that you choose to license out — how to get your foot in the door… the right door.
