Confidential: How to keep your amazing invention a secret


share this article:

As an inventor, you know that your ideas are valuable. You also know that in order to maintain a competitive edge, you need to keep those ideas secret until they’re ready to be patented. But how can you do that? In this blog post, we will discuss some steps that you can take to ensure your ideas stay under wraps until you’re ready to reveal them to the world. 

Thanks for reading!

First and foremost, it is important to keep your ideas to yourself. If you share your idea with too many people, it could get out before you’re ready to patent it. In order to avoid this, only share your idea with a select few people who you trust implicitly. 

Secondly, always use non disclosure agreements (NDAs) when working with others, whether they’re potential investors, manufacturers, or even just consultants. This will help to protect your idea in the event that it is leaked. 

Finally, consider filing a provisional patent application. This will give you a year to work on your invention without revealing your trade secret to the world.
