It's tough finding inventor intermediaries at mega manufacturers around North America...those monster companies that sell to corporate behemoths like Home Depot, Walmart and PetSmart.


Though some are well-hidden online at sites like LinkedIn, Bloomberg and Hoovers, we've done month's worth of work for you and found dozens of companies who license inventors.

The key to selling your idea or invention is finding VPs and marketing managers from companies who sell to mega retailers and online giants. Think Target, Michael's, OXO, Dick's, Fred Meyer's, Lowe's, Kohl's, Homegoods, JoAnn, Marshall's, Meijer, BJ's, Amazon, PetCo, Hobby Lobby, True Value, Best Buy, TJ Maxx and more.

After 4 years of research and calls, we've got legit invention helpers' info.









Most inventors keep their day job. If that's you, spending 30 to 60 minutes per business, per person, to find direct company contacts is out of the question.

Worse, you could waste all that time researching and never find the right person.

You may wonder forever if that company even accepts inventor submissions.

We've taken the guesswork out of finding licensing manufacturers. Waste less time on research and spend more time reaching out.
