Tinkers & Thinkers, Inc. Announces Global Launch, Executive Team Additions
Tinkers & Thinkers, Inc. is the nation’s latest and idea submission company and they’re finding out that innovation is alive and well in the United States. Founded in the fall of 2011, Tinkers & Thinkers is garnering a steady and growing stream of ideas from innovators and inventors that will either make their way to market or go back to the drawing board for more work in hopes of being launch-ready.
“I just want to say I am truly amazed at the quality of submissions we are getting at Tinkers & Thinkers Inc. To be honest I thought we would be getting more hair brained ideas that we would have to sort through example: crazy submits like underwater basket weaving gloves or something. We decided to put a small application fee ($25) to the process to make it more serious for people submitting their ideas, concepts and inventions”, said Tobias Ritesman, CEO of Tinkers & Thinkers, Inc.
“Plus I think people are starting to see we are the only global idea submission company on the planet right now that as you submit your idea, concept or invention, a Non-Disclosure Agreement is generated between us and them automatically when they submit and emailed a copy right after for their records so they KNOW their idea is protected,” says Ritesman.
“We’re planning to add a unique crowd funding type platform later this year along with many other innovations to help speed along getting products and inventions to market,“ says Ritesman.
When asked about the types of submissions and their viability, Ritesman says, “Thus far we have not been disappointed. It’s good to know America still has the grit and drive to be innovative. Even more so impressive is how many of you out there have great ideas that could turn into profitable ventures. I am very glad I put this company together. It's a great feeling sorting through all these wonderful ideas and thinking how we can make them happen!”
