The difference between the inventor with an idea that never sees the light of a manufactured product and the product developer who can make a good living from their ideas is what Andrew Krauss, president of one of the nation's largest and most successful inventor associations, Inventors Alliance, is passionate about changing--one inventor at a time.
Andrew has coached and mentored thousands of inventors since 1993 through the invention and marketing process. He is also the co-founder of Invent Right with successful inventor Stephen Key, a company whose education and mentoring helps every day inventors level the playing field.
I recently interviewed Andrew during my Coach for Innovation Blog Talk Radio show where we got into the nitty gritty of what it takes to become a successful product developer.
