About the Entrepreneur

Ken is a general contractor with four or five different trailers for his business use, so he is very aware of the time it takes to align a truck and a trailer without a spotter to assist. Ken claims laziness inspired the invention of Crash Pad. While he had no intention of selling his invention, people he worked with and did business with admired his idea, recognizing that aligning a truck and trailer in seconds was really useful: “Dude, you are onto something here. You need to do something with this.”

Working with IdeaPros

After a patent search found there was no similar product on the market, Ken began browsing the web for marketing companies. An ad for IdeasPro, introduced Ken to the company. While he spoke to other firms “The energy wasn’t good,” and he felt they had no time or interest in his product. With IdeaPros, “right from the get-go everything seemed very healthy.” After researching the company, Ken visited the partners in San Diego and engaged their services. Ken didn’t do much on his own; he felt “If you are going to market something, you don’t want to start on a real unprofessional level because then you’re just giving your idea away.”

Currently, Ken has obtained a provisional patent on his product and is working on the final patent with a firm recommended by IdeaPros. Crash Pad has a full blown website with detailed information and videos and sales capability (the product itself is available for pre-order). A manufacturer has been engaged to produce the product. Ken is particularly pleased that IdeaPros was able to negotiate a low minimum order with the manufacturer. Upcoming promotions include magazine ads and news interviews. Ken is completely satisfied with IdeaPros. They are “positive, transparent, very professional, very nurturing. . . . Anybody that is doing anything like I am doing and not using IdeaPros is at a disadvantage.”
