How We Got Started
We often hear the question, “How did InventionHome begin helping inventors?” The answer is simple—we started with an idea of our own and the dream of developing that idea into a successful product worth millions of dollars. Inventing and developing our own products has brought us great success, which led to a superior model for helping other inventors looking to do the same.
The Road to Success
Our story began with many tried and failed attempts to succeed with our own products. We learned, through trial and error, about patenting, licensing, manufacturing and marketing to large national retailers. We spent thousands of dollars and even more hours of time on our inventions. We achieved moderate success with one of our products on QVC, but true success still eluded us.
Then, one day, one of our company’s founders had a simple idea, which arose from his love for dogs. He discovered that his pet Rottweiler (“Franky”) loved to chew on frozen objects. After weeks of freezing wet washcloths, he developed the concept of a sponge-like, chewable dog product that could be soaked in water, frozen, and reused. At that point, the “Chilly Bone” was born, the seeds of InventionHome were planted, and the real work had begun.
Over time, we were able to turn the Chilly Bone into a multi-million dollar product line in the two-billion-dollar-per-year pet industry. We continue to launch new and innovative Chilly Bone products and our product line is growing bigger and stronger every day.
