ABOUT INVENTORS AND INNOVATIONS
Everyone has an idea for the next great device. Some of the best
inventors of the last two centuries were born in garages,

your product or sell direct? Who will design your prototype? And
how important is packaging?

teaches you how to take a project from concept to creation to
credit card sales, discussing the how-to steps of bringing an
