Good Housekeeping is dedicated to finding simple and smart solutions for life’s everyday challenges. The popular magazine, website and Research Institute puts innovative new products to the test each day.
Good Housekeeping and Edison Nation have now teamed up to find the best, undiscovered new consumer products to bring to market.
Brainstorm, invent and get your mind working on these core consumer areas:
Baby and childcare
Fitness, sports and outdoor recreation
Storage and organization
Home and bath
Lawn, garden and tools
Cooking, kitchenware and food prep gadgets, products and accessories
When developing your submission, there are some key questions to consider:
Does your product solve a common problem?
Can the product be explained or demonstrated in a visually interesting manner?
Does your product have mass-market appeal?
Will the consumer find your product’s promise believable?
Does the product have the potential to provide ongoing sales (refills, supplies, etc.)?
Edison Nation’s team of product review experts will review and research each idea submitted to this challenge.
If your idea is selected, we’ll split royalties with you, 50/50.
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 you to break out your inner Spielberg. 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).
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.
