As Co-Founder/Director of a new global web based infotainment channel to be launched in 2014, I am very pleased to have the opportunity to recommend the Activate Advisory Program. John and James were invaluable in both assessing and further developing our business planning and investment modelling, trade mark and patent requirements, target marketing, corporate setup and capital raising. I have no hesitation in recommending them in the highest terms.
The Activate Advisory Workshop gave us a clear picture on steps to be taken in progressing further with our product. The Workshop also opened our eyes to other potential opportunities. The Activate Advisory Workshop is vital for any inventor when developing a commercialisation plan for their product.
I have found the jump from developing and patenting my invention, to bringing that invention into the real, physical world as a marketable product a daunting and confusing task. Having no idea where to start with this, Baxter IP referred me to James and Hunter at Activate Advisory. The thoughtful and informed opinions and answers I’ve been given only describe part of the service that has been provided to me. Not only have I been able to openly ask questions; questions have been asked of me that have encouraged me to critically analyse the plans I have for my invention. I have been provided with clear and concise summaries of meetings / workshops, including step by step instructions on what actions I need to take next in the commercialisation process. The experience and knowledge possessed by James and Hunter have made the commercialisation side of inventing much more enjoyable and I plan to collaborate with them on all future inventions. I would recommend Activate Advisory to anyone who is seriously working towards sharing their ideas with the world.
I was impressed by the amount of work you had both obviously put in in preparation for the workshop and I feel very confident in your ability provide advice that will maximise the potential for my project to be successful.
Thanks for the report, it was very insightful.
