Disabled But Not Stupid Mother Seeks Business Grant For Product Patent
by Debora J. Berk
(Las Vegas, Nevada, USA)
I am a nearly 44-year-old mother of 5. I am now disabled after years of working in Retail Management.
While sitting at home I invented a product. I found a company to help me get it off the ground but I need to pay for the patent for the product.
I am under a confidentiality agreement so as not to let my cat out of the bag.
This is a project that could potentially get me off Disability for life so I want to move ahead. But being on Disability is holding me back.
I'm looking for a business grant of about $9000, which I understand is reasonable after speaking with other business people who got patents for their products.
The company I chose is a reputable company (Davison) and has help thousands of people like me get their product to market.
I believe in my product. The company I am working with believes in my product and just from my research, I know my product will take off.
I do not have a picture, as my prototype has not been made yet. It is in those stages now and could take months.
I do however need to pay for the patent as soon as possible to keep my project from stalling.
I've raised 5 kids and I've always worked hard to overcome obstacles my whole life.
I feel this may be my only opportunity to leave my mark not only on my family but also on the entire world.
