I am a Product Commercialization Consultant/Inventor with several product programs under my belt. Iâ€™ve consulted for several independent inventors and hold patents on proprietary IP projects (both winners and losers). My scopes include invention development, market research, alliance partner development, and licensing development.
Iâ€™d like to hook up with a Product Designer (semi-retired ok) with skill-sets in early-stage development: ideation and visualization, concept sketches-loose exploratory renderings (free-hand), design brief development, 3-D visual study models, proof-of-principles breadboard prototypes, and Solidworks. The IDer and and spouse would perform a secondary role - managing a unique hospitality facility and residing on that propertyâ€¦Iâ€™ll explain.
More specifically, I have a sizable rural property outside of Sandpoint, Idaho which I am transitioning into a specialty Bed & Breakfast which caters specifically to inventors (and designer) with which I consult. This B&B (in which the IDer and spouse would reside) is a rustic three-level log home on wooded acreage with creek, windmill, outbuilding, and miles of horse back riding trails through beautiful timberland (moose, bear, deer, etc.). My family and I reside in another home on the opposite side of this 120 acre property. As well, I have a separate office/studio building on the property from which I work (satellite internet).
My objective is to find that professionally qualified product designer who also possesses a unique blending of four personal characteristics: qualified invention development partner/collaborator, responsible tenant, a candidate and spouse which would truly enjoy the role of B&B hosts, and as well - fully understand the realities of a rural lifestyle.
Both Consultant and IDer would benefit from B&B revenues (I envision a fairly moderate level of B&B activity). As well, this partnering arrangement would permit both Consultant and IDer to potentially benefit from one anotherâ€™s client base â€“ performing respective roles and collaborating on projects as needs require on a project by project basis.
Does anyone come to mind?
