The family that fishes, canoes, hunts, travels, camps, hikes and bikes together, stays together.
The Earnhardt family has a long held love of racing, and a love of the outdoor lifestyle.
The Earnhardt siblings – Kerry, Kelley and Dale, Jr. – along with their families, have created Earnhardt Outdoors™, a lifestyle brand designed to pass the traditions and values of the outdoor lifestyle from generation to generation. Earnhardt Outdoors is now searching for new products that they can exclusively develop and bring to market.
Consider ideas that focus on quality, safety and innovative design.
Your ideas should be practical, rugged and designed to last.
They should encourage the whole family to get adventurous in the great outdoors, whether they are simply enjoying nature, hunting, fishing, canoeing, hiking, camping, traveling, riding horses, practicing their hand at photography, or playing with their pets.
Get adventurous and get inventing. The sky is the limit for this outdoors search.
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. We aren’t expecting a big-budget production. Please keep videos to less than 2 minutes.
As always, your submission should be unique and protectable (we love to see patented ideas but that certainly isn’t required).
Each idea costs just $25 to submit. Insiders submit ideas for $20 each with the ability to submit them into other searches for free.
Is my idea secure?
Yes! Every idea that is submitted to Edison Nation remains private. If your idea is selected to be presented to a partner, we have strict NDAs in place. Your intellectual property is extremely important to us.
If my idea is selected, what do I get?
If your idea is selected for licensing, we will remain in contact with you and our partner from the moment the deal is signed until it is ready for the marketplace. Our team negotiates competitive royalty structures and all licensing revenues are split 50/50 with you, the original inventor.
Why do I have to pay $25?
$25 is a nominal fee to help offset the costs Edison Nation takes on to review each idea that's submitted. It is a one-time cost. If your idea is selected for licensing, we will navigate the road to commercialization -- all at no cost to you. If you are an Edison Nation Insider, the submission fee is only $20!
What do I need to submit?
We'll review all ideas, whether it's a sketch on a napkin or a prototyped invention. You don't need a patent to submit an idea to Edison Nation.
