Hi, my name is John Pinnington, President of JEXS INC. I started using Invention Connection® in January 1999. The service provided by Invention Connection® has been outstanding.
Initially I was hesitant about making the investment. However I quickly found my money was well spent.
Not only did Invention Connection® provide an excellent write-up on my product, the Plant Pal, but they also followed up with me to check on customer responses to the ad.
It's rare to find a company that takes the time out to work with you on a one-to-one basis, but that's exactly what Invention Connection does. They not only provide excellent exposure; they also provide personal professional service. I began to feel like the staff at Invention Connection® was invested in the outcome of my product as much as I was; they really seem to care about my success.
Stephen even called to motivate me and suggested targets for me to hit each month so I could focus on a sales plan.
If you want to get your product in front of buyers, marketing companies or investors, Invention Connection is the way to go. Invention Connection® has increased awareness of my product since I started using their services. The exposure and assistance I have received from Invention Connection® has been invaluable -- choosing them to represent my product has been one of the best investments that I've made.

I must take this opportunity to express my sincerest gratitude for having your sound advice and wisdom guiding me through this tangled invention process. You are my rock!
Before I had the fortune to become part of the Invention Convention, I had made some costly mistakes...trusting anyone who offered help (always at their price, of course). Now, I feel grounded with your experience and wisdom behind me.
I truly enjoyed the Invention Convention in Pasadena last year. I made a lot of connections and met a lot of people I still stay in contact with. I also receive a lot of inquiries from my website on the Invention Connection. And of course, the most beneficial component of the Invention Connection website are your personal telephone consultations. You've taught me so much. Thank you isn't enough!!
I would like to wish everyone at the Invention Convention as well as their families a very Happy and Prosperous New Year!!!

Thank you for selecting our toy, "Take Apart Art" as the hot pick of the month. Our toy is now being sold in local toy stores and our website will be finished shortly for online sales. We have had numerous inquiries about our toy from the exposure of our Invention ConnectionŽ cyberbooth. People from all over the world have found us through this site. It has started a very large ball rolling! Thanks again.

We became familiar with Stephen Gnass and his organization through his event, The Invention Convention. We had an invention we wanted to promote and obtain exposure for, and this event seemed like a great way to do it. In speaking with Stephen, we learned that the Invention Convention was not going to be held in 1999, but that they were dedicating their energy to their web site, Invention Connection®, and we could get a cyberbooth on this site for our product.
We have since signed up for a cyberbooth, and are very happy with the results. Throughout this whole process, Stephen and his assistant Marsi have been extremely helpful in preparing the content of our cyberbooth, as well as with any other questions we have had along the way.
Even before we signed up for the web site, I was very impressed with the fact that Stephen would go out of his way to take a great amount of time on the phone to help me with anything I needed regarding our invention. It gave me great peace of mind (and still does since we are still working closely with Stephen) to have him available as a coach and resource. He is trustworthy, and really cares about the people he deals with. Thanks Stephen!

There is nothing more annoying than having a bright idea and not having the slightest idea of where to start or go about it. After all, most novice inventors come from professions totally unrelated to their inventions.
Such was my case. My idea nagged me for one year, where I lost a considerable amount of money to scam artists posing as invention promotional companies.
Then I came across invention convention and it's been smooth sailing since. With your website, I constantly get e-mailed by people who hope that Araknogear is on the market already. I have to keep explaining that it's still going through a second prototype design....and that we are still searching for possible licensees.
Fact remains, that you gave me the know how and confidence to get where I am today with the project, and up to now...you still stay in touch with constant follow-ups to make sure we stay on the right rack. Now that is what I call true leadership! Thanks Steve!

To Whom It May Concern,
I am a relative newcover to the invention field. A while back, I fell victim to an apparent scam, and in an effort to determine whether or not, it actually was a scam, I turned to the only sources I knew for some guidance. They, in turn, referred me to several well-known people in invention circles. One of these people was the highly successful inventor, George D. Margolin. He asked Stephen Paul Gnass, Founder of Invention ConventionŽ, and Executive Director of the National Congress of Inventor Organizations to respond to my query. Mr. Gnass did, in fact, respond and it marked the beginning of what has become a very exciting, enjoyable, and rewarding adventure.
I had heard of the Invention Convention previously on the internet. It had come to my attention the year before on the occasion of its 12th Annual Trade Show in Pasadena, California. Unfortunately, at that time it was too late for me to offer my invention for exhibit at the '98 Convention. I mentioned this to Stephen when he contacted me about the probable scam, and he told me about his development of the Invention ConnectionŽ on the World Wide Web Site. The idea of having an exhibit booth for my invention at a trade show for new inventions on a 24 hour basis, 365 days a year, was, I thought, a fantastic idea. I was immediately intrigued by the idea and applied for participation in the Invention ConnectionŽ Cyberspace Convention.
I am pleased to say that my invention, "The Gourmet Panhandler(tm)" was accepted, featured, and nominated for an award. Soon after my participation began, I started to receive e-mails, letters, phone calls, and faxes about my new product. I have been offered a number of proposals for licensing, distribution, manufacturing, investment, sales, etc. And, I continue to gain contacts weekly as a result of my Cyberbooth as well as direct referrals from Stephen Paul Gnass.
Without reservation, I highly recommend Mr. Gnass and his organization to anyone concerned with innovations and the development of new products whether as a seller or a buyer. My association with him as been most fruitful, and I cannot applaud him enough as a knowledgeable, honorable, experienced professional innovator in his own right, and a really decent human being.
