I would greatly appreciate any feedback or advice because my partner and I have hit a wall in our inventing process. We have successfully created a working prototype of our new invention and have also filed and received a provisional patent status. What is the next step?! Our end goal is to sell the idea to a store (it is a retail/apparel accessory along the same lines as Spanx) or a manufacturer but we really don`t know how to proceed. We`ve even considered going to the upcoming Vegas convention and getting a booth at the trade show but I`m not sure if that`s the right step. We both have full time jobs so can`t handle the manufacturing of the product by ourselves (and don`t know how) so honestly, we are looking to monetize the idea as soon as possible instead.
What is the best way to proceed?? Thank you so much! Any feedback or advice would be appreciated!
