Hi Mike!

Welcome to Edison Nation and thank you for your question! Feedback comes in two ways to Insiders:

1. If an idea is declined at any stage, feedback will be provided on ideas Insiders submit once they upgrade their account. This feedback can contain examples of competitive products, competing patents in the space, commentary on mass marketability, costing concerns, liability concerns and more. There are some great articles in the "Inventor Resources" and "InvENting 101" categories of the Edison Nation blog that touch on these areas.

2. If an idea submitted by an Insider once they upgraded reaches pitching stage in either the Insider Licensing Program or one of our standard searches, we will  provide ongoing feedback directly to your Dashboard on pitching efforts, feedback received, interest and more.

Hope this clarifies and I wish you the best of luck!

Michelle

Hi Mike!

Regarding the timing for product review...

This is a hard question to answer because it varies greatly. A lot of variables are in play, such as: how many searches are currently running on Edison Nation (EN), how many presentation dates are coming up, when you submitted your idea, and more.

The time it takes to review your idea depends on the search specifics, as well as the volume and complexity of submissions. In general, stages 1 through 3 move quickly. We typically begin reviewing stages 4 and beyond after the search has closed. After stage 4, EN is conducting extensive reviews so the time frame of movement seems to be longer.

For sponsored searches, please expect that all concepts will be reviewed up until the presentation date. This presentation date is usually set a few weeks following the close of the search. After the presentation has been given to our partner, they have between 45 days and 6 months to decide which ideas they'd like to move forward on.

The EN Team works very hard to move this along as quickly as we can, and we promise to keep you updated along the way. Join the forums where you'll usually likely find a topic dedicated solely to a search. Here, you can collaborate with fellow inventors who are going down the same path as you! And don't forget to check for movement and information on what is happening with your idea on your dashboard.

Best of luck!
