The American Society of Inventors Invention Evaluations:
The ASI offers free invention evaluation services to their members on a regular basis. Please apply for invention evaluation reviews to Ruth Gaal, secretary and Treasurer of ASI, she will sign a non-disclosure form for both herself and their Board of Directors and return it to you. You may then discuss your invention with her, board members or Jeffrey Dobkin in confidence. If your invention is approved for full board review, she will set your evaluation date.
Alternatively for a personal review and consultation you may elect to have Jeffrey Dobkin review your invention. Cost is $250.
Dobkin offers an in-depth professional review and a consultation on the phone. The full cost of this invention evaluation is $250. This review takes 30 to 45 minutes. His review is an initial marketing consultation which includes commercial assessment of where you are now in the invention process, directions you can follow step by step, and actions you can take right now to move your invention forward. This more personal analysis takes into account you, your invention, your personal strengths and weaknesses, your budget, time constraints, your areas of expertise, and your invention goals.
Dobkin’s consultations include information on: prototyping, patenting, manufacturing, marketing, distribution, market assessment, media analysis and licensing. Full Disclosure: Although Jeffrey Dobkin may offer some patenting advice, he is not a patent attorney. That being said, he’s pretty knowledgable about patents, and very good with his market assessment, advice and counsel. He has been reviewing inventions while serving on the board of directors of the non-profit American Society of Inventions for the past 14 years and does offer a good level of experience – and quite a bit of expertise – in the area of inventing and marketing.
Questions about inventing may be sent to Jeffrey by email: Jeff@Dobkin.com.
You may call Dobkin directly at his office: 610-642-1000.
In preparation of any review or evaluation, you should write down questions you would like answered during your invention review.
Unlike invention marketing companies who may have a monetary interest in telling you your invention is great and should be marketed at any cost (including huge fees to them), Jeffrey Dobkin and the American Society of Inventors have no investment in the success or failure of your invention, and nothing to gain by a good or bad review. As such inventors receive a completely honest evaluation. The ASI does not market products for inventors, rather in the evaluation they counsel and advise inventors of what to do with their invention from the state that it’s in, to move (if they want to) the invention process forward. The ASI does not offer additional services other than this review and evaluation that is included free with your membership.
Jeffrey Dobkin on a limited basis offers his marketing and advertising services to inventors who have a product ready to manufacture and market or license.
