Change is good
Connecting the ingenuity of innovators with the needs of today's retailers.
In today's economy, only the strong survive. To remain competitive, American businesses have turned to outsourcing as the primary strategy for keeping up with international industry leaders. Looking ahead, labor and production costs will continue to rise. The only thing that will keep major retailers and manufacturers at the forefront of our global economy is innovation.
Edison Nation proves what history has taught us: innovation is not found primarily within the domain of large corporations, scientists and universities; it lives in the hearts and minds of ordinary people who are able to see solutions in places others have overlooked.

A new model for innovation
Where traditional consumer products companies work solely within their means, Edison Nation utilizes "crowdsourcing." Relationships with innovators, retailers, manufacturers and non-profit innovation partners help position Edison Nation as the nation's only consumer innovation company working outside company walls.
What Edison Nation offers
Edison Nation offers retailers and manufacturers access to an unlimited pool of ideas not restricted by corporate structure — where ordinary people with extraordinary product ideas can make a difference.
Edison Nation speaks the language of innovation
Businesses and retailers and manufacturers can seamlessly collaborate and provide consumers what they demand based on their own needs. Each retailer and manufacturer can work with an Edison Nation Product Category Manager to define their needs. Edison Nation broadcasts these requirements via a Live Product Search on EdisonNation.com and owns the legal options on all product submissions.
A proven process
Edison Nation deploys its team of product development experts to identify all submissions that match the specific search criteria and then develops a comprehensive package of options that match the company's needs. That's it. No negotiating with individual inventors. Edison Nation leverages the collective genius of American ingenuity on your company's behalf, and everybody wins.
