Re: we're still around
Great to hear things are moving forward for you. I've run a few sucessful companies in my time, & brought numerous industrial products to market. It's not easy, & there's a few golden rules. From an invention pov, make sure it's more than just a better mouse trap. Your product must have a unique selling point, & more than anything else, it must simply address a problem that is widely found to exist within your target customer group, not a problem that is specific to you, or you believe to exist widely. Many ideas fail because the research is far too personal. I wish you well, & I'm always happy to offer some pointers if you wish.
