Task Overview

What you need to do:

  • Ensure your product has consumer value as dictated by the size of the market and by time, technical and any regulatory hurdles
  • Consider the value of patenting – if your idea has already been published or presented it cannot be patented and commercial value will probably be greatly diminished
