The Importance : An Invention Business Plan is an effective communication tool for providing a clear and tangible description of your invention while conveying its viability and value. It tells a detailed story about your invention including what it is, how it works and why your invention is a believable business opportunity. It can generally be described as an organized all-in-one depository of everything you know or have learned about your invention. It includes every angle about your invention so as to be used as a reference point for the development and/or submission of audience specific requests. Having a broad audience scope allows it to be used as a collection of information which can then be modified or adjusted according to the audience in which it serves.
By sharing my insights and examples, I hope to help inventors like you develop your own material in order to effectively communicate and present your invention to the many different users within the invention process.
The three basic actions for growing a business in any economic climate are: improve efficiency (maintain output while reducing inputs, such as time and money); increase volume (produce more in order to spread fixed costs); reorganize the business (change goals, methods and/or philosophy). If you plan to implement one of these, you may as well plan to implement them all. By focusing on one of the above strategies, you will find a ripple effect that causes a need to address the others. This is a good thing.
Estimated Manufacturing Cost: The ideal situation is to contact manufacturers to get a price quote of how much it would cost to build your invention. But this can be difficult if you don't have exact specifications. The other suggested general rule is to divide your Suggested Retail Price by a factor of 4. For example, if your suggested retail price is $80, then your Estimated Manufacturing Cost is $20.
