Considering outside and open
innovation ideas can be very time consuming and expensive. It can overload and overheat your
innovation engine if not properly maintained and attended to.
Think of me as a special blend
of oil for your innovation engine.
I have 25 years of related
experience on both sides of the equation—meaning I understand inventors (because I am one) and I
understand the realities of IP, license agreements, manufacturing, and business in general, as I
founded SpecTech, Inc., in 1993 and have been running it ever since because I love the inventive
process and enjoy helping others through it.
Working as an independent
contractor I can free your organization from the high cost of dedicating an employee, or
distracting you or other key employees from their core competency and
My services will lower the
opportunity costs often associated with considering (or not) outside innovation. I handle the time consuming initial evaluation and related
research. I assess readiness and prioritize submissions using a scoring method tailored with
your business vision in mind.
I can also work through initial
negotiations, license and other agreements, and keep information efficiently flowing between the
parties as needed for the optimum outcome—often reducing the cost of legal counsel by doing some
of the leg work.
If a new product idea peaks your
interest—but requires further development before bringing it in-house, I can work with the
submitter/inventor through that process.
