A product idea/concept must be thoroughly validated before money and time are wasted. For example, a university professor enlisted BHR to help get his cat litter box screen prototype to market. After minimal market research, we found the product had already been on the market for 10 years!

When the creator of this lighted grabber first partnered with BHR Global, they couldn’t find a retailer to pick up the item, and they weren’t sure why. They wanted to sell it for $24.99, based on an incorrect retail pricing strategy they received from another consultant. BHR came up with a more realistic price point based on years of retail experience, and the creators listened. The item got picked up by Amazon.com, and sold out.

Do Invention Service Companies Work?
Do Invention Service Companies Work?

You've likely seen ads for companies that -- for a fee -- will help you get your invention patented and make you a lot of money. While some of these firms are reputable, we've heard many cautionary tales from inventors and designers that never saw results. BHR Global is not an invention service firm. We rely on our vast experience to help you find the best way to get your product to market successfully.
