Tips for Young Inventors
Do you know any young inventors? The patent process is the same regardless of age, except for the need for a legal guardian involved in the process. Here are some tips to getting started.
Follow your passion
Inspiration comes from what you love- whatever you find yourself spending the most time on. Ideas for inventions almost always come from personal passions. If you’re looking to inspire a young inventor, try asking them questions about how things work or how they might improve something. Also, if you’re passionate about your invention, then you will be able to remain dedicated and confident throughout the process which will inevitably involve challenges as well as successes.
Know your field
If you’re going to market your invention, you need to know everything about your field: who will be interested in it? What’s the market size? How will you distribute it? How should you price it? People will take you more seriously the more you know about your field and invention. You’ll also protect yourself this way.
