Invent a Better Mousetrap

Got a great idea but don’t know what to do with it? can help get you moving in the right direction:

Big Idea Group conducts a number of Hunts and Contests for innovation-seeking companies. Hunts are searches for innovations or technologies in a particular area, usually conducted only with BIG’s Inventor Network and lasting a short period. Contests are nationally publicized innovation searches that often have a broader focus and last a longer period. Hunts and Contests are sponsored by retailers or manufacturers. Sponsors of past Idea Hunts include Staples, Thomson, Bell Sports, eToys, Dremel, and more.

Both Hunts and Contests are ideal opportunities for inventors to create innovations that a sponsor is actively seeking. Besides offering the chance for licensing contracts, Hunts and Contests often involve monetary or merchandise prizes.
