The Innovation Guru

Will my idea work?

How do I develop my invention? Is there a market for it? What are the steps to getting it out there? What do I do first?

Inventors like you are asking exactly these questions and more. My name is John Jacob, and I have the answers you are looking for. With over 25 years experience internationally in innovative product development as well as extensive experience in business, I can show you how to develop your idea with less money, in less time, and with less overall risk to you.

I de-mystify the process of inventing for you by revealing what to do first, what to do next, and each step after that. This is based on real-world experience, not just some academic "theory." I help you by:

  • Evaluating the commercial potential of the idea
  • Determining if the design will perform as required
  • Assisting you with the most basic necessities, such as a business plan, IP strategy and a working R&D plan.

The choice is yours: you can take your chances with DIY, or you can stay in control and get affordable, expert guidance from a trained specialist.

I also have a network of competent and reputable people ready to assist my clients. My job is to advise you whom to see and when, what to expect, and how to get the most value out of it.
