Client success stories of 2013
Have you ever seen someone launch a new product idea that you had thought of sometime before? Infuriating! If only you had taken action when you first thought of it. Last year, we heard this disappointment all too often. It was good news however for the list of Innovate clients below who managed to be the first to develop their idea and take it to market. We wish them many congratulations for their perseverance and making it happen.
- We launched our new Invention Calculator App in the US to great critical acclaim.
- New service launched – Inventor Mentor – helping inventors with business advice on how to commercialise and sell their ideas.
