How I can help you

Business strategy guy with expertise and experience dealing with inventions and whether or not a business idea makes economic sense. Have worked with consumer products and various types of government systems.

Specifically, I have over 30 years experience in working in two areas, namely:(1)  I work with inventors who have an idea for a new product or service and want to know how to move forward with their new invention idea-patent or otherwise, and (2) I work with people that have an idea for a new business and/or want to add a new product to an existing business and want to know if this makes economic sense. I can provide guidance in writing a business plan and, in particular, can help with the market assessment and market strategy approach. I am currently the President/CEO of a 30-year old market and information research company where we provide services to individuals and companies that need information and market research services. I have extensive experience in the aerospace and government contracting areas having worked in business development and program/project management for such companies as North American Rockwell, Hughes Aircraft Company, Ultra-Systems, Inc. and the Boeing Company. Specific technology areas of interest and experience include military electronics, information systems and environmental technologies.
