How to Finance Your Invention or Great Idea by Jack Lander. Lander shows you, step by step, in clear, non-technical language, how to find nearby sources of money. He guides you to investors who are as eager to finance inventions as you are to use their money. Here are just a few of the endorsements this book has received from well-respected inventors and authorities in the field:
"This book is a wealth of information, not only on financing, but on the whole process of developing, protecting, and marketing your invention." Michael Avery, inventor.
"There are many books on inventing, but the unique perspective of Jack Lander's book makes it a gold mine of extremely valuable information." Mary Sarao, inventor and entrepreneur.
"Finally! A guide with the real answers to inventors' #1 question: 'Where do I get the money?' " Joanne Hayes-Rines, publisher of Inventors' Digest.
"Success will be fashioned from 1) a truly good idea, 2) perseverance, and 3) Jack Lander's advice." Joe Engelberger, father of robotics.
"This book would have saved me thousands of dollars had it been available as I brought my product to market. A 'must read' for inventors who wish to stay financially healthy on the way to the marketplace." Todd Glickstein, CEO, Lotto Spotto.
"We meet far too many inventors who harbor myths about financing the development of an invention. Lander's book fills a gap that has been left unfilled for far too long. His down-to-earth style provides the backdrop to a great deal of very practical advice that demystifies the steps to take on the road to successful new-product development." Karyl Lynch and David Cormier, new-product scouts.
