Will Idea Buyer “buy” my “idea”?

Occasionally there is confusion over the name of the company, Idea Buyer. The company’s name has more meaning, than a literal assumption. In short, no. Idea Buyer does not buy ideas.  Idea Buyer does, however, provide opportunities for an idea to be bought.

Within every element of Idea Buyer, there is an end-goal for an inventor entrepreneur to sell or license their idea. The online marketplace and product development services are the main aspects of the company. Both are platforms for an entrepreneur to utilize and progress towards an interested party buying their idea.

We have heard countless stories from clients saying they wish they would have come to us first. For their sake, we wish they would have too!


Unlike many companies that consider themselves to be competitors of Idea Buyer, our team is very selective of the products and technologies we work with. The company was created to help people be successful with their ideas. Ten years later, everyone employed at Idea Buyer stands behind this belief.

When comparing our company to others, we have recognized how different we are. Mainly, because of the people that work here and their desire to help our clients succeed. Being a part of a product’s success is what TRULY excites each of us. Every idea we work with has a team of dedicated account managers; people updating you on a regular basis and available for questions. Often, due to the level of communication, real relationships are formed, making sharing good news even more exciting! 

We are REAL people that genuinely care about your business.

Over the years, we have chosen to turn away ideas we didn’t believe had the qualifications or means to be successful. As every growing company knows, it’s never easy to turn away business. However, Idea Buyer strives to uphold a moral integrity of partnering with only those we see as a good fit.
