Let us show you how to successfully bring your idea to market.

Whether you want to license your idea, bring it to market yourself or become a product scout and license other peoples ideas for them, we have the program for you. We cover all three areas in our program. When licensing your ideas, you are not restricted by your location. You can license products from anywhere. The inventright program is available to international students as well as students in the U.S. This program will prepare you for any situation so you know how to successfully bring any idea to market.

Our program features...

    Andrew Krauss and I are here to answer any questions you have about the process. If you have a question simply pick up the phone and call us or set up an appointment. We will personally help you through whatever issues you may have from sell sheets, to contracts to Intellectual Property (Patents, Trademarks, Copyrights) strategy and more.
    As part of your team we will look at your project and determine the best path to bring it to market. We help you determine if you should license or venture your idea, who your potential licensees are, any manufacturing issues, and the correct presentation materials required to successfully license or sell your idea.
    When you do receive that all important contract we will help you evaluate it and determine if it is the right deal for you. We will review minimum guarantees, royalty rates, terms and more to make sure you are getting the best deal possible.
    We will teach you how to write your own Provisional Patent Application (PPA) with the help of patent attorney Damon Kali. You won’t need special software to write your PPA. Damon will show you everything you need to properly craft a PPA to protect your idea. The potential savings from this class alone is $1500-$3000. Plus, once you learn this skill you can use it over and over again to save yourself thousands of dollars on each of your ideas.
    You will receive our complete 200+ page workbook. The information in the workbook spans the 30 years of my career. Learn the ins-and-outs of licensing.


    Each and every week Andrew and I host an online class. This hour long class takes one step and discusses it in depth. Learn even more just by submitting your own questions into the conversation, and listening to our responses, live! We bring on attorneys and conduct case studies. This is where you get to know us and we get to know you. It's a great place to network with other inventors. If you miss a class just listen to the recording online in the members only area. Go back and listen to past classes any time you want.
  • BONUS VIDEO - Learn to Patent Search Like The Pros.
    Doing a patent search can save you money, time and heartache down the road. The problem is that paying a professional patent searcher is very, very expensive and quite often doesn’t yield satisfactory results. Some patent search firms may quote you around $500, but that’s quite often for a very limited search that doesn’t require enough hours to do the job right. Our professional patent searcher will show you how to do a patent search the right way, while saving you a lot of money. We searched for the best, most experienced patent searcher we could find. Not only is he experienced, he’s a great teacher. He’ll walk you step by step through how to do a patent search in this in depth two hour video.
  • BONUS VIDEO - Design A Winning Sell Sheet
    A sell sheet is the most powerful way to convey your idea to a potential licensee. Most inventors do not know the first thing about designing an eye catching sell sheet. Learn from Sell Sheet expert James Shehan how to properly design your sell sheet. Learn from the exact same person that designs sell sheets for Stephen Key and inventright.

Look what our students have to say about the program.

Well, its been about 10 days of pitching and WOW, have I learned a lot. I've found that its really not that tough to speak with VP's and Presidents if you're just willing to keep dialing. Its amazing how much these companies welcome new ideas. They really do feed on it. I think they get just as much fun out of meeting us as we do them. I took your advice and sought constructive criticism from firms that didn't like my idea. The President of one company called me from his cell phone tonight and spent about 20 minutes with me, telling me exactly why it wouldn't work for them. He was extremely helpful, and very gracious. Stephen and Andrew, you guys are right 'on the money' with all of your advice, and you're 'being there' makes this an adventure. I trust that as long as I stay in line with your instructions, I'll avoid many costly mistakes and will eventually have one my ideas licensed.  What a blast!
Thank you both, for everything.

I just wanted to drop a note of thanks for the Webinar tonight. The personal coaching and sincere concern for your students is evident. I am so glad I am one of them. I am studying & brainstorming every chance I get. You provide so much more than inventing help you "Coach into Royalties" The tools that both of you provide to your students remind me of this Chinese Proverb: "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime."
Thank You!

I signed my licensing contract today. You saved me enough $$$$$ to pay for your entire program! Never could have done it without you guys!
Thanks a MILLION!!!!

Success Stories




















What Our Students Say...

Steven and Andrew,

I appreciate your willingness to work with me as an inventright student.  Your input is invaluable and after we talk I always feel more confident that we are on the right path.

Best Personal Regards,



Dear Stephen,

I read Mr. Key's book a few years ago. I had been undergoing cancer treatments for a few years, and I was financially strapped. I had been a corporate attorney until my diagnosis, and with a long-term battle ahead, I had no idea what was going to become of me and felt imprisoned in what to do with my life. 

Mr. Key's book really changed my life because it helped me to think outside of the box. It really helped me to see the power of an idea. It gave very helpful and clear guidance on how to take an idea and turn it into revenue. Furthermore, the book provided helpful instructions and resources.

I am still undergoing treatments. I am thankful that this book helped me to get on a terrific path in the midst of a very trying time. 

Thank you, Mr. Key!!!!


Thanks again Stephen for responding so quickly to my call for help! Very, very much appreciated!

It confirms, (not that it was required) the amazing level of genuine commitment you, Andrew and the rest of your team have for helping your students to success. With so much going on in the world these days it is hugely comforting especially for a newbie such as, but not limited to, myself.

Thanks and regards,



To the inventright Team,

My name is Harkeem, and I am a Product Developer. I would like to thank the entire inventright team for doing an exceedingly fantastic job in supporting their members. I am so happy and proud to be an inventright student. I am making phone calls and making contact with manufactures, and I owe it all to Stephen Key and Andrew Krauss. These two are a great team to work with. 



Thank you for your encouragement. You give me great inspiration. I will be successful at this in the near future. I haven’t given up my day job, but I have been working on a few things, and your book gives me hope.




Hello Stephen,

Absolutely outstanding Webinar last night it's just what I needed.  I am a different kind of learner meaning I need a bit more explanation when someone's trying to teach me something.  I find your ability to convey and cover details very useful.  What's even more helpful is you dialogue things so the details can be best understood in how things are spoken as well.  What hangs me up pulls me back is I don't know what to say or how to say it so I don't do things.  Your thinking well to include dialoguing in teaching the inventright steps shows your natural instinct for people skills.

Thank you again and again I can't thank you enough.




Hi Stephen and Andrew,

Wow, great webinar tonight!! No doubt in my mind I have THE best coaches in the world!! I am VERY happy you encouraged me to "keep inventing" to make my product better which I do think has made it much stronger... Now I just have to keep taking the actions to FIND IT A GOOD HOME!! LOVE being an inventright student, and feel incredibly lucky to have your expertise and support behind me. I am determined to get a licensing deal ... if not for this project, then for a future one!



Hi Stephen,

Just wanted to email you a special thank you for the webinar last night! I was really knocked out by it. It answered some nagging questions I had from before, and got me all excited for when I write a PPA for my next project. You and Andrew just make things SO easy to follow. Having the benefit of your experiences and your always-positive guidance really helps me feel confident about moving forward. I just wouldn't be ANYWHERE near here without your help. THANKS again ... I truly love being an inventright student ...




I can’t begin to tell you how much your program and your inspiration has helped me with a product I have worked with for around 6 years.  I have done my sell sheet, my pending patent and I am ready to start sending out my sell sheet, which Andrew helped me improve.  You have opened the door for me to license it and have started the wheels turning on many other products.  I also know and have other friends who have already spent huge amounts of money for patents and are attempting to manufacture their own products.  I will be talking to these friends and hope to head them in your direction. Thanks again for your help and encouragement.  Hopefully I will be able to call on you to help me negotiate my product with some big company.  Have a great day!
