I don’t know about you, but as a creative I have always thought it would be great to have a partner to work on ideas with. The only problem is finding the right person to work with.
I have tried partnering up on ideas which was fun and a friend even recently asked me to do the same thing. The trouble is our skills don’t really complement one another – we both like doing the same bits of the process. We like the ideas, the design, but neither of us are good at the selling part.
Have you experienced the same thing?
I emailed Andrew Krauss, from InventRight to ask him if he would consider adding a section to the Inventright forum for finding an invention partner and he emailed me back with his advice.
His advice was good and I suggested he should make it into a blog post, he said he was thinking the same thing.
In the blog post he talks about finding someone with different skills to yourself and also about how to test a potential invention partner before you work with them.
