I call this the biz of selling an idea

How much could I get if I just sell my invention idea?

Not talking a prototype, just a raw idea straight from the brain onto paper.

Who would buy someone's invention idea so that they can take credit for it?

And how does it work? Do I first copyright my invention idea? Explain.

You need a patent first.

Nobody is just going to buy your idea, they'll just pretend they are going to pay you, and then not pay you, and make a bunch of money.

What you wanna sell is your intellectual property, but it must actually be legally yours first.

So, get ready to spend about 10 thousand.

You can get what someone thinks it is worth.
If your idea is a keyboard with jello shots for keys, some may think this a worthy idea.

I do hold the patent on this by the way, so no funny business.
Drink as you type keyboard, made for bored writers.

Whiskey shots do not work, the splash and shock kills the keyboards too.
I guess someone other than me thought it was a good idea though!
Thanks whoever.

Heres a shortcut, make a book about it, then publicize the book

Everyone will know its your idea. Problem is you can only take credits, not profit.

Had set up somtheing similiar early 00, something similar to how has, eventually i recieved an email. That email landed me in Norway and two weeks later i sold my company. In short a U.S. based company wrote me a blank cheque (so to speak) and left it on the table. 12 years later, i still dont regeret the sale, but i miss working on something i was in love with.

Ever watch a show called "Shark Tank"?

It's a bunch of people pitching their ideas to some investors.

You can see some people's successes and their failures.

Watch a few episodes and you can pick up some of the info you want to know.

In Canada it's called "Dragon's Den"
