Inventor Confidential - ABSTRACT
Inventor Confidential: The Honest Guide to Profitable Inventing (Harper
Collins) covers a wide range of topics, all dedicated to promoting grass
roots innovation in America. The first half of the book describes what a
successful corporate Open Innovation program looks like and why it is
important for companies to search outside their four walls for
disruptive and profitable innovation, highlighting proven mechanics,
explaining why the outside contractor model works best, and recapping
from extensive experience of how Warren entered the arena, both
personally and professionally. Of equal importance, independent
innovators (inventors, product developers, designers and makers) may
learn more about how to develop new products the proper way and license
them for profit. The second half of the book focuses on the myriad
challenges today’s inventors are subject to, including scammers taking
their money without supplying profitable results, big tech companies
diluting the patent system, PTAB challenges at the US Patent and
Trademark Office, as well as Washington DC lobbyists and politics. The
book ends with a section on the importance of organic innovation, why
that will be critical in digging out of our current economic recession,
and what everyone in our society, from the Supreme Court to corporate
board rooms, can do to improve the current state of US innovation;
otherwise the United States may soon lose its historic place as the
world’s leading innovator.

person behind the launch of several highly successful consumer products
including MISTO, The Gourmet Olive Oil Sprayer and the SmartSpin Storage

shows, most notably the National Hardware Show. Warren is also a member
of the National Pro Bono Patent Commission and the United States Patent
and Trademark Office National Council for Expanding American Innovation.
