IASCK - July 27nd, 2015
This months speaker is Carrie Jeske!
Carrie Jeske, founder of Inventive Ideas, helps inventors create and license unique products that solve everyday problems and can be sold on TV for $19.95. This is the fastest, least expensive way for an inventor to earn money, even at the concept stage. Carrie does not charge inventors for her services and is only paid on successful product sales, by the investor groups she represents.
Carrie describes herself as a salesperson & product scout who married an inventor & structural engineer. Carrie served as president of the Inventors Center of KC from 2010 to 2012 and on its board of directors since 2006, helping to grow it more than 1,500 strong with between 50-80 people attending monthly.
Inventive Ideas was founded in 2000 with…
• A utility patent for its first product, SportsShade CanopyAwning
• Carrie and her husband of 27 years, Stewart, secured investors, manufactured the product in China and started selling.
• Carrie appeared on QVC and gained traction selling online, in catalogs and at trade shows.
• She has secured purchase orders with Budweiser, Coors Light, Coca Cola, Cabela’s, Sam’s Club, Costco and more through 2008.
Current successful As Seen on TV rollouts include Magic Mesh, Windshield Wonder and Jupiter Jack.
