Common questions. Straight answers.

Does Enhance sign a Confidentiality or Nondisclosure Agreement?

Yes, disclosing your project to Enhance is always 100% confidential. We understand that you want to be comfortable and take the proper precautions with and are glad to accommodate. You can view our standard Confidentiality/Nondisclosure Agreement by clicking here.

Does my new product need to be patented before I submit it to you?

No, we work with products at all levels of development.  Further, since we sign the confidentiality/nondisclosure agreement, it is not considered a public disclosure, nor will we disclose it outside our firm.

Will Enhance pay me for my product?

Enhance is a full-service product development firm, not a venture capitalist.  Consequently, we do not buy inventions.  However, we do have design solutions for startups and inventors who are seeking licensing.

Do you work with clients outside of Minnesota?
Yes we do!  We have clients all over the US and Canada, as well as many countries throughout the world — most notably Australia, New Zealand and the UK.
I would prefer to meet face to face, can I come to your office to meet?

Yes, please do!  We love it when our clients come in to meet with our staff at our office.  When that happens we try to include several folks from our staff to go over various components of working with Enhance, most notably design and licensing.  If you sign up that day, we’ll even include you in the initial “whiteboarding” and “ideation” phases with our design team!

*COVID-19 Update: Meetings may be subject to state executive orders, but we are currently following CDC guidelines to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

I'm an inventor and I have lots of questions about licensing...can you help me?
Absolutely!  Because there are so many questions about licensing and our process, we developed a separate licensing section to answer your questions.  Click here to learn more.

Typically we attend the trade shows listed below and we may add others (at our discretion) depending upon our current projects.
