Where Ideas Receive Recognition and Reward
Edison Nation (a sister company of Inventors Digest) scans the country for innovative, solution-based ideas each day. To date, Edison Nation has worked with the likes of The Clorox Company, Procter & Gamble, General Mills, Fisher-Price, and Mattel to pursue new products.
For inventors or everyday idea people, Edison Nation offers the opportunity to get an up-close view of what some of the country’s most recognized companies are hoping to develop.
Whether you are a parent who’s changed one too many dirty diapers or a DIY tradesman at home, Edison Nation may have a product search relevant to your idea. If not, then innovators can take a look at the ongoing Innovation Fund searches. This $25 million fund affords the Edison Nation team the ability to search for new ideas to develop and commercialize throughout the year.
Since launching, Edison Nation has worked with products ranging from ASOTV’s Eggies to the Stark Hand, named Popular Science’s “2011 Best Invention of the Year.”

Edison Nation is working with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to support its Manufacturing Extension Program (MEP) and breathe new life into American-based manufacturing.
