The “Aha!” Moment and The Mission
I’ve been fortunate to get some products in the marketplace but the learning curve has been steep with a lot of trial and error. That’s because I had to ﬁgure out everything for myself.
But there came a time when “light bulbs went off” and I was able to crack the invention code. It was then I took on a new mission to share the lessons learned with any creative person who wanted to go down this path. The reality is there are few resources out there to educate inventors. There are patent professionals, engineers, designers and the like who provide valuable services during product development, but they are not responsible for the overall success of your project. That’s your job. As a mentor, my interest is to help you make sense out of the process so you can make informed choices that improve your prospects of success.
Elizabeth Pierotti is an inventor, educator, mentor and author. As a multiple patent holder, she has designed and developed product innovations that have collectively generated more than $100 million in sales for Fortune 500 companies and small businesses alike. Having “been there and done that” for more than 35 years, she has given workshops and presentations to thousands of entrepreneurs, designers, inventors and students on what it takes to transform ideas into commercially viable products. She is also author of the guidebook “The Inventing Life”.
Elizabeth’s comprehensive concept validation program earned her the “Rhode Island 2008 Innovation Champion” award. Through this process, inventors tested the merits of a product idea before investing time and money in costly development services. Over the years, she has also individually mentored hundreds of first-time inventors of all ages and experience levels in their quest to turn a product idea into a successful venture.
