Smart Idea Store is a business networking website for innovation where good ideas are transformed into great commercial products.
Smart Idea Store is the idea of serial inventor Professor Angus Jamieson who wanted to create a website to act as a focal point for inventors, investors and project partners to access resources and guides covering all stages of the innovation process, promote their ideas or businesses and find the people and resources needed to form a project team that covers every stage from:
* Development of Ideas
* Protection of Intellectual Property
* Attraction of Investment and Funding
* Product Development
* Commercialisation of the Resultant Technology
Subscribers can access resources and guides to improve their knowledge and expertise in their particular area of interest, upload their own resources to highlight their own expertise and capabilities and read material about the other specialties involved in the innovation process to get a better understanding of the other stages of innovation commercialisation:
