The beauty of invention starts when you are able to think positively about your immediate environment and world at large. There are certain things, which inspire you to think about research and development, which is the power of the inventor. The drives of an inventor is to create a system whereby his or her works (products) will be useful to mankind after he or she left this world. The benefits of their works will be share among the people of the world to make life worthwhile to live. What you should consider most if you want to be one of the greatest inventors or innovators in this life. You should be strong in your believe. Consider the benefit it will add to you as individual and then society at large.
To have a good thinking mind you should avoid being in the environment that does not appreciate people that want to contribute to the development of this world or if you are, make sure you discipline yourself and do not let the situation influence you negatively. If you are in such environment, what you need to do is to look for positive mindset people that motivate you to exhibit your creativity. Staying in bad environment, have strong negative effect on you and gradually your dream fade away with time and everything you intend will prove abortive. Just because the environment does not support your dream and you become mediocre at the end.
The power you have as a human being is that you have total control of your mind and your life. There are people who discourage their fellow human being and they are present all over the world. Sometime they ignorantly increase your power because of the problem they create for you turn into an event that gets you going and fuelling your creative thinking about introducing something new. You might not accomplish your aim at first. However, it just so happens that way. With your power, you can overcome this stage and continue pushing forwards your ideas on paper. It will develop into a stage whereby things will be easier for you to carry out easily.
Everyday people have used their bad moments to realize their fortune because of frustrations and challenges of daily life experience. You only need to think and pay more attention to the impact you can have to this world. Take the first step now, though it may require that you separate yourself from your friends, colleagues or associates at first. The methods you will use depend on you. In that period you may need financial resource, if you do not have capital, you can create a means of getting financial support, which can be channel towards your research and development. Most importantly, the only resource you need is time. You need to invest your time considerably. It does not cost you a dime but can never be bought with millions of dollars once it lost.
Moreover, once you are able to exercise patient, you will overcome the period of lack of capital. I do not know the area you consider yourself very good at, but all the same, every idea/dream starts the same way but through different means. In the area of invention, what you need to think particularly about is problem solving to previous challenges encounter with product or service. Think about introducing new product/device that has not been design for use by another person before.
It can be a new modification of existing product in the market. There are different new ways objects can be designed and produced. What had been designed for use in the past was introduced to solve a problem. Your idea may be better than the previous product or device in term of advantage, benefit and usefulness. For instant, the idea of designing new objects which man can used to travel from one place to another by air was developed by two brothers, they told their father that they can develop an object that will resemble bird and use it to fly.
Their father discouraged them and asked them where in the world they saw such thing. Meanwhile, new research and development was sponsor by American Government with huge amount of money yet it did not materialize as a result of lack proof of principle. But the two brothers had a very strong believed, commitment, perseverance they developed and introduced the first ever plane used by man to travel from one place to another. They did it without any knowledge of physic and engineering. They were not aeronautic engineer; they were just men with a dream. They only used their inborn power to transform their dream into a real object. It had made commerce possible which you and I are enjoying to simplify commerce, movement of people and commodity from one place to another.
The most important aspect of a dream is to transform it from nothing to a stage that can be appreciated by the world through it value addition and can be touched or felt by people. It has been said, success will only come to the person who belief in himself or herself and work towards achieving it.
The power of human being is unlimited by is dreams, which is used to design, change and execute any of his or her idea. Thinking is the only tool which transforms the life and style in which we operate. The method of carrying out certain operations or tasks last year will change in the present year as a result of new technology, product, services or apps. Which has been introduced by someone like you. The act of transforming dream into reality belongs to every human being and it can pass through different channels. A musician can only capture his or her idea if it been documented. The idea comes as flash. It will be capture through writing and composing lyric. Later, it will edit and arranged it into song. As soon as the opportunity comes they get into the studio to record the song and it becomes album.
Ideas come to human being through flash of thought that cross your mind. It pass to brain, and the brain, if attentive makes notice of it. The mind will interpret it, determine if it is worthy or not. The mind will save the flash for short period of time for effective processing to see it useful. In order not to lose it, it need to be documented it on a paper or other device for future reference.
In order to know, if your idea will really work you need to test it, not in real form. There are ways you can tell people around you about your idea and know what their reaction will be towards the idea. What kind of problem can it solve? For sure there will be many critics, if you choose the right thing at the right time and let the talking be the fuel that burns your desire. Moreover, use that criticism to improve your idea and let your dream be open indirectly to the people around you because they will serve as a market for your idea. Given them the opportunity to do the reviewing through condemnation and you should defend the area you feel will be important to introduce but consider the means which you can used to modify the shape or method of using the said product or service better that the prior idea you came up it. In the end, if you introduce the new object/device/process they will be force to commend your efforts because they have separated the wheat from the shaft. Make note of every aspect of ideas transferred from your brain and keep it. It will serve as a reference for your foundation. Idea development can take several stages before arriving to the final stage, which become that perfect awesome product or service used by the people on a daily basis.
Many old, young, female and male all over the world comes up with new ideas, which are better than the old technology. Through the ages, inventors have been in forefront as a maker of history. Their achievements have had enormous impacts in the world’s economic development. New ideas can find solutions created by old technology and provide reasonable solution to the problem by individuals, groups of people and companies. Two individual in the different location can be working on similar idea. With different design or implementation process but end up with the same results. Sometime, both can employed the same process without see each other or communicate the process to each other. Nowadays, inventor and innovator face a lots of challenges inventor on daily basis in term of intellectual property infringement. It always good to conduct patent search and be the first to register invention.
There are certain things needed before you can be satisfied that your invention is good and meets international standard. By getting appropriate legal documentation that will back your invention and in turn can make you money either directly or indirectly. These are legal documents that back ideas such as patent right, copyright, register design and trade mark
Many of us are afraid of problem and failure. However, most time, there is an opportunities in every challenges we face on daily basis. Many of the great people of this world have transformed their challenges into abundant wealth by providing solutions to their problem which in turn solve others. They saw immense opportunities in a problem and focus on the best way to address the problem, study it in depth, and come up with an astonishing solution to the problem. These principles and methods have proven itself in the past on how to transform problems into opportunities and this is what I will talk about in this chapter. Therefore, if you have problems or challenges I hope this chapter will be able to address your problem and help you to come up with best solution, which I believe will open more doors of opportunities for you.
The most appropriate way is to have interest in the problem that giving you a setback studying it with your heart. Look at the way you handle things. When it comes to setting of goals, planning and execution. Study every bit of the process and notify the challenges and threat. In term of business, your relationship with your family, colleague and other people. Try to evaluate everything, with these approaches, a new solution will present itself naturally and you will be able to visualize the outcome to the problem.
For every solution that every one of us now enjoys such as vehicle, plane, ship, computer, telephone, face book, Google etc. All started with thoughts and building the thought from idea into reality. As soon as a new thought to a problem has been established in your mind, the next stage is to capture it in your mind and transfer it from abstract into a new concept.
You do not have to be expert before you can capture your thoughts and put it on paper. Drawing is the cheapest means of solving a problem. From there, a new course of action will follow suit by arranging and evaluating the different thoughts you generated as a result of the problem you are facing and picking the best solution for the problem. You need to do a little personal research on the advantage and method of carrying out the concepts, which will be of a benefit to you and your environment at large.
Offering your new solution to your friends, colleagues, associates will only strengthen your new concept because many of them will criticize your new concept by saying no, nobody have ever come up with something like this or it will not work that way or they might say it will be too costly to produce and use by the consumer. At first, it will challenge you. This is when the power of focus, determination, dedication, persistence and faith will come to play. The opportunities and achievements you will accomplish will out weight the criticism when you look at the untapped potential you have in your creativities and the benefits you will derive from it.
While, they will strengthen your solution because they will ironically serve as the end user of your solution and they want value for their hard earn money and you the producer must convince them enough that paying for your solution will definitely address and solve their problem at a reasonable price.
The research and development will be require to conduct on your new product or idea because of negative impressions you receive from your friends and family member will definitely empower you and serve as a way to strength your unique selling point, which will make your solution better than the average product or concept in the market. This method and new approach in solving problem can be transferred into the development of a new product, software or strategy and it can also be used as a focal point in your relationship with consumer, stakeholder and people around you.
There are great numbers of opportunities in the problems the world is facing. The problem of the energy we use, which have damaged the ozone layer and causing global warming and the cost of crude oil in the world market. Some of these problems have been solve with the invention of new sources of energy for saving our world like producing solar energy, wind energy and bio gas energy, which provide clean energy at minimum cost over crude oil. The benefit it will have over the previous energy in term of cost and safety will be enormous.
You can search other areas for problems. It can be in a product either tangible or intangible. Find a solution to it by developing an interest in the problem, which will enable you to unlock the solution to the problem. It is very easy to discover solutions from the challenges that people are facing on a daily basis, for every problem there is a solution, and for every solution, there is another problem will be created. All over the world new products are being developed either tangible or intangible and commercialize on large scale to address and solve problems which people are facing and for which is endangering people’s life.
For instant, the issue of lack of capital faced by the author in the past for publishing their book has been solved by production of electronic books (e-book), which is a cheaper means of producing book and can be deliver online to any part of the world instantly through downloading or in CD. Many barriers have been cut and it possible to sell millions of copy in a single month. Using credit cards and other means of electronic payment to pay for the book allows for instant receiving of the product. With all this opportunity that has been created another problem has been created such as credit card scam and false information, which have been affecting businesses online. The problem was address by studying the root, the history, which resulted in solutions such as PayPal, Alert Pay, and other online electronic payments emerge.
All these challenges are new opportunities for making statement, for actualizing your purpose in life by being a creative thinking individual, corporation or government agency.
The problem is the starting point for every solution. And for every problem, there is a solution. What I am trying to pass across is that sometimes you need to stop being disturbed about a particular problem, which has remained unsolved for quite some time. I implore you to stop brainstorming on solution. Look inward to the problem itself and study the cause, its implication on society; this will give you insight into the problem which will open door to the best ways solution can be offer. If you look critically at the problem, you will be surprised that the solution will present itself naturally without you stressing yourself.
The world we live is moving at a faster rate than ever before in the context of our way of life which center around things we used on a daily basis. Many ideas/products are been dumped and people are looking for new ideas and concepts. This is because the old products are in the declining stage and they have completed their product life cycle. As a result of saturation in the market and loss of appetite. So consumer wants new product or service that will give value for their money. Also companies need new product ideas which will be better than the previous product in term of design, performance and cost which will make it easier to produce and market to the world. You can use these areas as an advantage and benefit. Invest your time and money in finding solutions to problem created by previous inventions or products. Think about operations that require larger capital, labor and maintenance cost in order to use such machine or device and likewise some of the product or service that is useful in your life. In every solution, there is problem and it will be advantageous for you if you can think and notice the area, which can be amended or change totally. Better still you can come up with a new idea which will be of interest to people, something that will be cost effective to produce and use by the final consumers
Additionally, there is something that you are better off doing than anyone else. Something others struggle to do. But it require little effort on your part to do. Dedicate your time on it, work gradually on that area, and before you know it something will come out of your research and there will be something on the table. Something which can be used to solve one or two problems and then you need to do further research. The benefit of your idea should be determined and you need to have vivid idea about the outcome you will realize if it eventually manifests into reality.
Support and investment can only come to you if you have something to offer to investors, partner and promoters or companies that are looking for new technologies to produce or market. It will be the only proof to show them that you can perform better than this if given an opportunity and it will shows what you are capable of doing it. Then only 60% of them will want to risk their financial resources on you.
After you have arranged your ideas and put them down on paper or through other means, you need to conduct search through organizations such as:
Do get firsthand information on how to use search engines; log on to the Internet and search the website of each organization in different countries you want to be granted a patent right on your invention.
The WIPO is only world body, which is operated under the United Nation that administers most intellectual property and register patent all over the world. Try to find information in your search on similar product, See if a patent has already been filed for your product or been granted in the past pertaining to your new discovery. If not, you can start to write your patent specification and the development of your idea. You must know that a patent cannot be granted to any invention, which had been previously patented. If there is similar details, or the same title name of your invention in the past it is advisable to withdraw from further process.
This will save you a lot of money and stress. Better still you can change the title of your invention and introduce new features to it.
Carrying out research on similar name or product might lead to legal issues which the owner of the invention may sue you for infringe his or her rights. You can patent a single object, which can be used to increase the efficiency of a part. It does not matter whether you are the one that invented the previous application or not.
Idea development can be accomplished in a conducive environment where there are no distractions and you will be able to pay more attention to what you are doing in detail. The suitable place can be corner of your room, a part in your garden or anywhere that you find peaceful.
Presentation of your idea must be well documented and it should be in order. The first step should be put ahead of the last part. If your idea needs to be represented with graphics, do so. You do not need much knowledge in drawing but little will be advantage because you can interpret your idea in graphical form, which will create a better impression about your invention. With knowledge of drawing, you will be able to change or add more features into your invention. Sketching is easier, because every object that you see on daily basis has one time been in sketching form, before it was transform into full drawings, which the designer and engineer work on.

Most successful patent application granted has detailed description in the specification that is several pages long or a few short pages but all contain the vital information. It describes different embodiments of the invention and refers to a set drawing, which describes the technical detail of the invention. Some complicated machinery or electronic equipment need many more pages of description than an invention of single product that is only has a few parts or items.
The drawing shows the detail of your invention. Each of your drawing sheets can contain several figures and it should be label clearly example ‘Figure 1’, figure 2’ or by abbreviate the figure (Fig. 1). Each drawing should include the figures that differentiate it from other figures (drawing). Using reference numbers or letters can show specific features of your drawing. These references can then be used in the description to refer to the important features. Your reference number must be the same throughout your drawing. If you label one part in figure 1, as 1, it must be the same in figure 2 if the part in figure 1 appears in figure 4, 10 or other figure. It must be the same throughout the drawing sheets.
A single object or device can have several parts and different functions assemble together to form a single device. In order to show the detail or essential parts of the device, you need to explain it separately in your drawing sheet by using different perspectives on showing the part or component. Such as end elevation, front elevation, plan view, isometric view and other perspective that give detailed descriptions. It is advisable to draw the size large for the sake of clarity.
*Do not erase the drawing sheet of pencil. It affect the clarity of the drawing which can affect your patent application and rejected.
If your ideas need to be explained through graphic presentation, you need to acquire Drawing/design software e.g. AutoCAD, sketch up, solid work and the likes. Free hand drawing can also be use but need to be careful by not used eraser to clean the drawing sheet. Scanning the drawing sheet will show up the erasing part which make the drawing blur for clarity.
There are different types of drawing software, which you can use to draw your invention. It makes drawing easy and speeds up the time require when drawing your components and parts. Mistakes can be easily noticed and correction can be making without condemning the full drawing sheet. You only print it out once you are satisfy with the drawing.
It is applicable to use free hand sketching. You need to make it precise and clean.
To back up your drawing you need to provide a detail description. This is the description that explains your Invention. The number in each drawing must be the same if it appears on different sheet and it is the numbers that will be refer to when writing your description. The entire component or part used must be explained clearly and it should be available in the market. The component should be substitutable in case, the part you describe in your specification is not available in the market. The manufacture name of the component must be explained systematically with the number referring to the drawing.

Methods for preparing Patent Application for your Invention, new product, ideas, concept, creativity, software or new process.
You need to create a general term that describes your invention in single word or sentence.
Example is WASTE COLLECTOR. This is a very important aspect, which gives the purpose of your invention and it should be related to your invention.
Example. How to draft description of an invention for possible granting of patent right from Government.
This example illustrated below is for explanation on how to prepare invention specification and for possible granting of patent certificate only. The author did not give right to anybody, group of people or manufacturer to use the said invention described herein as an offer for sale, import or manufacture. It only provided for explanation purpose only, which shows the essential detail of invention specification, must contain only.

(I.) Link the inventors with Patent Office’s all over the world
(ii.) Assist inventors in drafting patent applications covering the invention in question.
(iii.) Process patent application through Industrial Property Offices.
The modern Nigerian law on patent is governed by the Patents and Design Acts Cap. 344 of the law of the Federation of Nigeria 1990(Act of 1970). It is administered by the Registrar of patent, trademark and industrial design, which is under the umbrella of the Federal Ministry of Commerce, Abuja.
The law provides that a patent may be granted for an invention that:
• Is new
• Involves an inventive step (not obvious)
• Is capable of industrial application (useful)
• Is not specifically excluded in the Act (e.g. inventions the publication of which may encourage immoral and offensive behavior)
• An address for service in Nigeria if the applicant’s address is outside Nigeria.
• An application must date only to one invention but may cover claims for any number of products or processes.
If you have a convention application, that is an application claiming priority on the basis of an earlier application to register the patent made in a foreign country. By virtue of the patent and designs convention order 1971, Which provided that if the Nigerian application is made within 12 months of the making of the earlier application in the foreign convention country, such application will be treated as having been made on the same date on which the corresponding foreign application was made. An applicant seeking foreign priority to his application will complete (form IB), a written declaration showing:

Tony Elumelu Foundation
Africa’s development has become somewhat of a personal mission. It is my belief that Africans should take primary responsibility for our own development – because, to be blunt, no one is going to develop Africa but us. I also believe “charity” as conventionally defined is not the best solution for our continent. Instead, we need a “new philanthropy” that focuses on building the capacity of the private sector to create jobs and wealth – and that this leads to sustainable development.
I firmly believe that we should be strategic and catalytic in our philanthropy. It is not, and should not be, about simply providing funding, as this is only one of many possible tools for impact. I would encourage entrepreneurs to give their time and experience, and use their influence, to create impact. The projects we support, for instance the Nigeria Fast Growth 50, demonstrate our desire to embrace global opportunities and practices, while ensuring that as much as possible of the value adding aspects of Africa’s resource wealth stay on our continent.
I often tell the story of how a $5 million investment in a small, dying bank 17 years ago spawned UBA, a multinational, pan-African financial institution that has created 25,000 jobs, generated wealth in communities all across Africa, expanded finance for trade, created stronger financial infrastructure for investment and economic growth, paid taxes to national and local governments to support public services and given millions of customers control over their financial lives. Imagine if we created 1,000 home-grown, pan-African companies like UBA in Africa – now that is impact. That is what drives me, and that is why we started the Foundation.
I set up the Foundation to tackle some of the problems African entrepreneurs face, as entrepreneurship is my passion. I would also like to encourage more of Africa’s high-net-worth individuals to give and support their passions in an institutional manner. It is my belief that home-grown African philanthropy should be setting the agenda for the continent’s development.
