“How do I know you won’t take my idea?”
That’s a real question with a real answer.
1. Prior to submitting your idea you will receive a Non-Disclosure Agreement, which is a legally binding agreement. This agreement prohibits Invention Ark and its employees from showing your idea to anyone without your expressed consent.
2. We are professionals and more importantly legal professionals bound by our oath to confidentiality between us and our clients. We are registered to practice law in the state of Arizona, California, and New York.
3. We specialize in Patent Law and intellectual property with over 30 years of experience. Your confidentiality and trust is our priority.
“How long does the process take?”
Typically, the process takes about 3 weeks from the time we obtain your submission. In many cases it will take less time and others a bit more. You can be certain your success is our number one priority.
Does my product have to be patented or patentable to submit it?
NO! Many of the world’s most popular products, those you see every day, are not patented! We measure the exclusivity, opportunity, and profitability on a case by case basis. The success of your product is determined by many merits and having a patent is one piece of the big pie. We analyze the big picture and bring real results to you and your idea.
Can we submit an idea?
Absolutely! Many products start with an idea. If we deem the product to be a viable concept we will take the professional steps necessary to take your product to the next level. This includes professional documentation, prototypes, and outstanding marketing.
In the instance your idea is complex and requires specialized attention we will guide you through the process to realize your idea. We are in the business of Patents, intellectual property, and making license deals.
So tell me, what’s the deal?
We take ideas, concepts and your dreams and bring them to market. This includes patenting, intellectual property protection, marketing, distribution, financial funding and licensing. Please see each of our specialized verticals linked below to read more.
Protection – Marketing – Distribution - Funding
What are the costs and financial obligation?
You pay nothing at the point of submission. Once the Non – Disclosure is executed and your idea is fully submitted, we can then engage to fully understand your product needs. Typically there is a $189 (lawyer time) fee to procure your assessment. You own this assessment which includes Patent, Marketing, Distribution, and Funding requirements.
What about a contract? Do I need a lawyer?
We provide you with legal representation and will always keep your best interest in mind. If you have an attorney to bring to the table, that’s fine! We have negotiated hundreds of successful deals and keep the process very simple while giving you the right to approve every step of the process.
“I asked you to call me and you didn’t. Why?”
Many inventors submit emails or call requesting information. We follow the process strictly to protect all parties. First we must have a signed NDA; second we must have a fully submitted idea.
“I need money for my invention”
We will provide it! We analyze the potential of an idea and invention and if accepted, we will fund a viable, profitable invention.
