Before getting a product manufactured and attempting to launch it onto the market it’s essential to assess its chances of success. We call this concept validation.
Whether you’ve just got the gem of an idea or already have a working prototype, we’ll objectively and constructively review, question and challenge it. The aim is to check that it accurately addresses and fulfils the required design criteria and the needs of your target market.
Testing your product idea is an essential process to go through. It also helps us ensure that we only commit to working on projects where there’s a real chance of a successful outcome, making working with us an investment rather than a cost.
Our experience has shown us that it’s important to think about intellectual property rights – patents and copyright – early on, but only protect your idea when you’re 100% ready to do so.
We can provide patent advice from our own experience of taking products to market. We can also help you identify whether (and when) it’s sensible to patent an idea or apply for an alternative form of legal protection, such as a registering a trademark or design.
We’re not patent attorneys so we can’t help you make an application for a patent or registration, however we can connect you with appropriate legal professionals in our network.
