Turning Ideas Into Market-Ready Products

by Josh Malone


Josh Malone is an inventor and entrepreneur with a background in mechanical engineering.  He holds numerous patents, and has successfully commercialized several products, ranging from electro-mechanical to the toy industry.  His most well-known product is Bunch o’ Balloons, the super fast, self tying water balloon filling system that allows a person to fill and tie over 100 water balloons in 60 seconds.  The product found enormous success through As Seen On TV marketing and is on the shelves in Walmart, Target, Toys R Us, and other retailers.

Josh will share his experience turning ideas into market-ready products, working with manufacturers, and successfully licensing products.  He will also share a bit about his experience with Intellectual Property defense, which often accompanies success.

Don’t miss the opportunity to hear Josh’s story, and to participate in Q&A with an inventor who has been down a path that many inventors want to travel.
