We make our profits by accepting inventions and then successfully commercializing some of them. Below are examples of submissions Invention City has accepted over the past two years.


Submit Your Invention for Brutally Honest Review

Like other risky investments, inventing is a form of gambling. Even the most amazing inventions are more likely to fail than succeed. The hard fact is that when we make an offer for a licensing deal to an invention, the odds are around 90% that it will NOT make us any money (that is why we are picky). The good news for inventors is that once Invention City takes on the project, the inventor is not asked to spend anything more out of pocket. In other words, if you pay $95 for a Brutally Honest Review, that is all you will spend, even if the cost of going forward for patents, prototypes, travel, presentations, video production etc. exceeds $100,000+ (watch this video). If we reach a dead end with your invention, we return rights to you (along with our development and presentation efforts) so you can continue forward on your own without any obligation or debt to us. In short, whether we succeed or fail, we move your invention forward at our expense, not yours.

The projects we have taken on cover a wide range of product categories targeting consumer, industrial, sports, medical, and transportation markets, ranging from under $1 million to upwards of $10 billion in annual potential sales. That said, our current sweet spot in this age of social distancing is for consumer-oriented products that can be sold online used in and around the house.

Representation Deal
Evaluated invention and market to establish a price for offering the invention in buy-out negotiations with a Fortune 500 corporation. I-City managed talks and came close to a deal. Deal ultimately failed because of declining category demand (less use of paper). Followed up with additional presentations, travelled to Amsterdam to meet with inventor and suppliers. Total investment by I-City of $15,000.
Inventor Payment to I-City: $95

Bed Bug Protection Device
Represented by I-City
Renegotiated licensing deal on behalf of inventor. Created new invention based on inventor’s concept and assigned invention to inventor. Revised deal will pay out approximately $1,000,000.
