Trident Invents has helped successfully develop and launch dozens of products, since our founding in 2000. We have worked with hundreds of inventors and companies of all sizes, from smaller niche businesses to major brands like Philips and Stanley. We specialize in consumer products and have licensed concepts in many different industries, including housewares, electronics, toys, hardware, pet, garden, music, and more.
Our Process: SUBMITTING IDEAS
Our Process is simple. We are a licensing agency, which means we help inventors license their inventions to companies that are looking for new innovations, in exchange for a royalty, which is a percentage of the wholesale sales. We are a contingency-based, meaning we work for free, unless we secure a deal for you. Inventors and technology creators submit ideas to us through our ThinkBank™ Portal, then our team of experienced inventors and licensing agents review every idea that come in to see if it’s a good match for us. If so, we will reach out to you to come to an agreement to represent your idea for license.
The ThinkBank™ is a proprietary system we developed at Trident Invents to manage all of our own ideas so we wouldn’t lose track of them and could keep all the important information in one place. We now are making available for free to you. Upload your ideas and never lose track of an idea or associated file, note or link again. You can also submit to the Trident Invents team for consideration directly through the ThinkBank* by simply clicking a button. All our communication around your idea can occur there so it is easy to keep track of, and we can even sign an NDA (Non-disclosure confidentiality agreement) inside the portal if we determine it is necessary.
Our products have been sold, or are currently selling, in almost every major retailer. Some of our retail partners:
