Anybody with any experience with pitching their inventions? I'm so close to cold calling Samsung Engineering myself to see if we can't work something out.

I have an innovation idea is more like it. We would probably use our smartphones more than our laptops and desktops if we could. With tablets and foldable phones on the rise it may be more of a reality than ever before. Their R&D departments doesn't look like they can cut it anymore. I think they could use some help. I could use some help too. Not the convincing yourself it can't be done help but this is what I would do help so we can show our kids and their kids that David has ways of not only beating Goliath but ways to work with him and be civil.

Hi Joseph.

You might consider contacting Bunker Labs. They have quite a few programs and resources that you might find helpful in taking your idea and moving to the next stages

Hi Joseph, thank you for your service! There are many resources online to provide individuals with ideas on how to obtain patents and/or develop products. If your idea is specific to Samsung, you may want to use their website to try to contact them and get pointed to the right contacts to speak with there. Hope this helps and best of luck, Gordon
