Tracking hyperlocal prolific inventors globally.
Problem the startup solves:
When one googles “prolific inventors,” a list of global inventors is shown. There is no known list of prolific inventors within world cities. IDiyas.com is tracking prolific hyperlocal inventors in a worldwide economy. This site and the LinkedIn group “idiyas” aim to celebrate inventors and their ideas.
A select few ever get the recognition that they deserve. A vast majority of inventors end up being faceless and voiceless. We celebrate them by giving them podium standings (#1, #2, #3) within their geographies. IDiyas offers an easy way to visualize inventors’ stack rank with others (by volume, specialty, quality, or landscape).
When two or more inventors start to collaborate, many more innovations are born. IDiyas wants to build an engaging forum for inventors to vet ideas, trends, and commercialization in a safe, trusted environment.
Here’s some trivia from ~17 years of utility patents data from the USPTO:
– To be on the Top Global 1000 inventors list, the minimum entry is 185 Patents.
– To be on the Top Global 500 inventors list, the minimum entry is 252 Patents.
– To be on the Top Global 100 inventors list, the minimum entry is 508 Patents.
Please get in touch with fellow resident inventors within your respective cities to discuss ideas and get inspired. Collaborating with them could not have been easier. At least now you know them!
