Invent Help Review from Wadsworth, Ohio

Vera of Wadsworth, OH My husband saw InventHelp on TV and they were the only ones we looked at. I spoke with Aaron originally and explained to him about the product. We got the process started by them calling us up and asking us some questions. They said somebody would call us back. A few weeks later, somebody called us and made an appointment for us to meet. I brought our idea and gave it to them. We looked over some papers and signed them. Then, I applied for a patent and they said that the process would start. They gave us a lot of details on many of the steps. Then, a few weeks ago, I got some papers that I went over and changed some of the verbiages on explaining about my product and I sent it back. They went over it and sent me some more, which I went over. I changed a couple of things and signed them. They have them now and so far, I have not received the patent yet. InventHelp’s reps are very easy to contact. I can call or email them. Aaron also calls me every once in a while, to find out where I am, and if I'm happy with what's going on. I am very satisfied with their service so far. We gave the money for the patent and they're working on that. They are working on some papers that would go to companies explaining about it too. We're also going to where they meet with a lot of companies that come and see what people have offered.

Invent Help Review from Colver, Pennsylvania

Darrell of Colver, PA I'm very satisfied with the service of InventHelp. When I started the process, I went online and requested more information. They called me the next day and I had an appointment set up. I went and presented my idea to them and how I had it all planned. They then told me that if I wanted to get it to the next step, they should go ahead and do the patent search and do the development and research to see if it was feasible to actually make it. I was also given details on the steps if it gets approved. I worked with Don in the beginning then once we signed the contract, it went out of his hands. Their customer service has been excellent and any time that I have questions, it is very easy to get in contact with their representatives. I just call and they put me right through and answer my questions. They also communicate with me to let me know where things are in the process. Right now, I am patent pending and I am waiting for some brochure information to review from InventHelp.

Invent Help Review from Homedale, Idaho

Jeremy of Homedale, ID I met with InventHelp's guy and put in a downpayment. We signed a loan agreement thereafter and now I'm waiting to get the letter back saying all the contracts that they have gotten, if they got me. Their rep has been easy to contact and has been really good about getting back on time. I'm satisfied with the service.

Invent Help - Major league sports iPad uses

We reviewed our records and determined that we have no evidence of a client with this respondent’s name or telephone number. The respondent evidently discovered a concept which he believes is similar to his invention. The reality is that similar concepts are one of the many risks inventors face every day. However, if in fact the respondent did meet with an InventHelp representative, he would have signed our “Statement of Confidentiality And Non-Use” which states:
-
“InventHelp hereby agrees that the idea, invention, or product you are disclosing and which you believe to be your own original creation shall not be used, sold, assigned or disclosed to any other person, organization or corporation without your permission, and further, that none of the employees, agents, officers, or directors of InventHelp shall utilize the same in any manner unless specifically agreed to by both parties in a Submission Agreement, which may be entered into at a later date.”

This Statement of Confidentiality and Non-Use remains in effect whether the respondent contracted with our company or not.

Furthermore, our company literature, contracts, advertisements and company disclosures make it clear that we do not evaluate inventions. In fact, every prospective client, on their initial contact with our company, signs our Affirmative Disclosure Statement which states: ”We do not evaluate or appraise the merit or marketability of your idea or invention.”

of course the company has no record, my idea was solid at the item, and was brushed off telling me it was a security risk for NFL or any national sport to use ipads because of hacking. few years later i see ipads on the field, i see this company taking users ideas and using it for there own profit.

Original review posted by user Aug 17, 2019

I posted my idea about using ipads in mayor league sports instead of the old binders couches would use, i was told no, its not going to work bla bla... Invent Help wrote me off. year or so later i started seen ipads on the fields, i will be taking this to court.

Invent Help - To date InventHelp appears pretty good...

...my question is whether my video (https://www.linkedin.com/in/stevenjakshadmd/detail/recent-activity/shares/) would be helpful in finding investors for a potential infomercial investor?

Invent Help Questions

Invent Help - With the bases loaded Tim Kilburn comes in clutch

Originally I walked into Tim Kilburn's office with some doubts as to what invent help could do for me. My mother and I came to see if they could assist us in getting our products manufactured and presented to trade shows with hopes of garnishing some sales. After meeting with Tim on our last meeting he informed me that I qualified under Invent help's Addendum B which allows me to bring to the table the products for which I already had manufactured. This saved me thousands of dollars of re-investment money that would have gone to repositioning and remanufacturing. Thanks to Tim I can now forgo the manufacturing and step to the plate and go from there. This was 5 star service and in my book a Home Run.

Invent Help - Inventhelp help is a scam ,don’t throw your money away!!!

We are very well aware of this respondent. We have unsuccessfully attempted to resolve his concerns. He has been repeatedly abusive to every representative with whom he has spoken. His statement that we do not return phone calls is simply not true and disingenuous at best. Furthermore, his statement that our company representative agreed with his assessment is also outrageous and untrue. We believe we provide our services to the everyday inventor in an honest and forthright manner in what is considered a very difficult industry.

They claim they could do things they’ve never done. It’s got to the point where they dont return phone calls.

I want my money back.

Ms.lark the Pittsburgh office administrator admitted the work done was garbage. Kevin at the Richmond office knew inventhelp was under fire when he took my money, and I want it back!!!!

Invent Help - Auto Safety Mat

I paid Inventhelp to help me get in touch with a manufactor to build my prototype .But all they did was the research take my money and give me manufactors that have nothing to do with safety. I will not refer any person to them ever again. They won't do anything at all for you.

Invent Help - Supportive & Knowledgeable

InventHelp was very supportive through the grueling process of getting your invention patented. Before seeking out their assistance, I had several patents on different inventions, but was only able to get one of the patents approved. I didn’t have enough experience to understand the criteria for patent approval. So that’s where InventHelp steps in. They guided me through the process and were able to get my previously denied patents, approved. I won’t go into specific detail of each invention, because that information is confidential. But I can say that they do what is promised. They have plenty of experience to guide anyone who is ignorant on the topic of patents. Thank you again for all the assistance your entire team provided!
