It works just like our sponsor-specific Live Product Searches, except we’ll work with any consumer goods retailer or manufacturer in any mass-appeal category.Learn more about becoming an Insider

A Fortune 250 company has come to Edison Nation to find new solutions in flexible packaging in the following markets: cleaning solutions, personal care, and food & beverage.
The industry is moving away from hard, rigid packaging. However, there is a lack of functionality within the flexible packaging solutions available today. Your goal should ultimately be to improve the functionality within the packaging. For a plastic bottle, for example, this would include stacking ability, open/close features, handling and dosing.
Keep in mind the following industry trends:
Convenience – the ease of use and how quickly a product can be used
Minimization and Sustainability – environmentally-conscious solutions that reduce the footprint (less is more!)
Products will be sold to consumer goods manufacturers, that will then, sell them through their own distribution channels. The end-user is consumers, but this Fortune 250 company would be selling to manufacturers. The price points will vary depending on the size and application of the packaging.
Do you have the next innovation in flexible packaging? Submit your idea today.
Reward: Advance & Royalties
Licensed ideas will receive a $2,500 minimum advance on 20 years percentage of sales or buyout. We split the licensing royalties 50/50 with you on the products that we select. Royalties vary based upon the product but we always earn industry-leading rates.
We ask for well-communicated ideas. This includes filling out our easy-to-use submission form to the best of your ability. Upload images, sketches and any other media that support your idea. Tell us your story. We even encourage you to create a video demonstrating your innovation. Don’t worry. It doesn’t have to be a big-budget production. Please keep videos to less than 2 minutes.
As always, your submission should be unique and protectable (patent protection is helpful but not a requirement).
Each idea costs just $25 ($20 for Edison Insiders) to submit. If you are an Edison Nation Insider, your idea may be submitted to as many searches as you would like at no additional cost. Click here for more details on Live Product Searches.
