Learn how to bring your ideas to market without spending a ton of money.

You will also learn how to...

  • Cut a great deal and get a company to pay for your patents.
  • Identify the right licensee, who to ask for, what to say and how to get the company to say "Yes" to your product.

Stephen will show you a step-by-step process you can use to bring your ideas to market through licensing.
