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. All of the people we employ stand behind this belief. Which is why 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, but from a moral perspective, Idea Buyer doesn’t believe in having people spend their hard-earned money with us unless we see the potential for true business success.
