Calling inventors – make it happen in 2020!
Having designed many products for other companies over the past 30-odd years I’m enjoying seeing some of my very own inventions reach the market. There’s nothing like seeing something you created actually out there in the shops. Here’s one that’s done nicely for us - the Flexi-tip Sealant & Grouting Smoother from leading brand QEP Vitrex. This was really my wife’s idea when she got a sore finger from decorating! Now widely available in DIY stores and builders merchants - click here to see.
It won a GlaxoWelcome SMART Award too!
This next innovation is brand new - only launched last week. Invented by a ‘switched on’ electrician for electricians, SocketMate makes sure those fittings are all nice and straight. Saves lots of time – and money. They say the simplest ideas are the best! On sale now here.
Now with Brexit finally behind us and looking to the future I’m throwing down a challenge to our unrecognised local inventors: let’s see if we can put Gloucestershire on the map as an innovation hotspot!
To try and get those creative juices going this month I am making a special offer to Glos.info subscribers. When I take on a project I always have a first meeting with the inventor to understand their idea and consider how to make it, how to protect it and how to market it. Normally this meeting is charged at £50 - however to Glos.info subscribers I am making this available free until the end of March 2020.
Which invention – something to help with Coronavirus?!
You might have an idea for something practical like healthcare, but it could be pets, fashion, golf, gardening – anything really. Why not give it a go – even Mr. Dyson had to start somewhere!
