EIP nurtures consumer-oriented inventions so they grow into true innovations - innovations that big consumer companies will want to license and consumers will buy. We are pioneering the Product Capitalist® model, and we lead inventors to the rewards of the market with less risk. We screen for the highest potential ideas; invest our capital and time to upgrade the product, concept and patents; and then utilize relationships with major consumer product companies to find a good home for the invention. If you are an inventor with a patented consumer invention and want commercialization help, consider whether EIP wouldn't make more sense than going it alone.
