Edison Nation, the go-to innovation marketplace and online community for independent inventors, is teaming up with Amazon to host the Amazon Inventions Tour in Atlanta beginning Friday, September 25, 2015 through Saturday, September 26, 2015 from 7AM to 7PM EST at the Infinite Energy Center in Duluth, GA (formerly Gwinnett Center).
The Amazon Inventions Tour provides startups and inventors with an opportunity to privately pitch their invention ideas in-person to Edison Nation’s expert evaluation team for possible funding and further development. Inventors with ready-to-sell products are invited to present directly to Amazon for possible inclusion in Amazon Launchpad, a new program that makes it easy for inventors to launch, market and distribute their products to hundreds of millions of Amazon customers across the globe.
The event will also feature a number of high-profile speakers including venture capitalists, innovation experts, and industry leaders.
“Whether you are a serial entrepreneur, garage inventor, or a tinkerer with a simple idea, the Amazon Inventions Tour provides a unique opportunity to connect your innovation with the experts at Edison Nation and one of the world’s largest global e-commerce sites,” said Louis Foreman, CEO of Edison Nation. “We’re excited to discover the undiscovered, and find exceptional new products and product ideas that can be introduced to consumers around the world through our collaboration with Amazon.”
Edison Nation has secured a $50 million investment commitment to fund the launch of selected products, including new product inventions and ready-to-scale companies that may require financial support to potentially make their products available on Amazon.com. Inventors with ready-to-sell products are invited to present directly to Amazon for possible inclusion in Amazon Launchpad, a new program that makes it easy for inventors to launch, market, and distribute their products to hundreds of millions of Amazon customers across the globe.
