Ask Us Anything What is MindBlower? MindBlower is an innovative I2P (idea-to-product) platform that helps inventors become entrepreneurs.

You can read more about our process here How does MindBlower work? 1. You upload a short video pitch of your idea. 2. Our team of experts screens your idea for business viability. 3. If we believe in your idea, we will begin developing your product, handling everything from market research and R&D to manufacturing. 4. The final product goes into presale on our website to test the market. If it meets its sales target, it goes into the final stage of production. 5. Your idea is manufactured and distributed to customers worldwide. 6. You receive up to a 20% royalty each year. Learn more about our process here What kind of ideas can I pitch to MindBlower? At this stage, MindBlower is accepting low-tech ideas. We are not accepting ideas for apps or other high-tech products. What’s the catch? There is none. If we love your idea and see its business value, we’ll produce it. If your product reaches the mass-production stage, you’ll receive royalties. On the other hand, if we do not choose to produce your idea, you will retain all ownership rights. What will my royalties be? You can earn up to 20% royalties, depending on the state of your idea when you pitch: – 20% if you have a patent pending, a working prototype and a first commercial sale – 15% if you have a patent pending and a working prototype – 10% if you have a patent pending or a working prototype – 5% for proof of concept If we choose your idea, we will send you an offer according to these guidelines. You can read about this further in our Terms & Conditions. How can I submit my idea? Simply videotape yourself pitching your idea in two minutes or less, no special effects or gimmicks necessary. Be clear, be charming and be sure to make us believe in the power of your idea. You may also upload any supporting materials—such as images, 3D models and patents—that help to explain your idea. You can do so here. How long does the process take? Our initial screening process takes approximately two weeks, at which point we will let you know if we want to invest in your idea or if we feel that it’s not quite right for MindBlower. If your idea isn’t for us, we will return your proposal and the idea remains totally yours. If we move forward with validating your idea, it usually takes up to ten weeks, sometimes less. We will keep you informed as we proceed with the project. Who can use MindBlower? Anyone 18 years or older! All you need is a great idea that solves a very real problem. We’ll take care of the rest. Why should I trust you guys with my idea? In a nutshell, our reputation is on the line, and the law is on your side. Our team is composed of world-class experts who cannot and will not risk their reputations by stealing your ideas. Because we understand that this is a grave concern, we discuss the subject further in our Terms & Conditions. The entire process is documented and audited. Worry not: Your ideas and your rights are carefully guarded. What’s this Presale all about? It’s pointless to make products that people won’t buy. At MindBlower, we invest tremendous amounts of energy, time and money in order to turn ideas into products. We can’t allow ourselves to waste our scarce resources on products that won’t sell, so we sell each product on our website first with a target sales goal in mind. If the product meets its target, it enters full production, and you begin earning royalties. What makes MindBlower different from other crowdsourcing services (i.e. Kickstarter)? Other crowdsourcing platforms require a huge investment of time and money from the entrepreneur with unknown results. But, with MindBlower, once you’ve pitched your idea, we’ll handle the rest. At the consumer level, the difference is enormous as well. With other crowdsourcing platforms, backers get no guarantee that they will ever see a return on their investments. At MindBlower, you either get the product you paid for or you get your money back. It’s that simple. Can I use MindBlower on any kind of device? Yes, you can! For the best experience, we recommend using MindBlower on your desktop or tablet at this time. How can I contact you? For general inquiries, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
