I was talking to my patent attorney about my options with my project and once we were done, he went on to tell me about the great niche product he invented and just patented which he wanted to start selling.
I thought it was interesting and he asked me if I could help him (my experience is in sales and bringing a product to market) get it introduced to companies and/or help him license the design. I thought it would be a great opportunity for me since I like doing this.
It never occurred to me that there might be others out there needing someone to help them with sales in such a way to help them introduce their products and/or help them get started with their product or service to get some traction.
I wanted to ask here...
Is this a prevalent need? or is most of this carried out by the founders? I always did it because that's what I naturally do however others I realized might need some help with this. Just as I would normally contract the tech side. Are there others out there that would like to contract out the sales side to sales talented people to help their startup gain traction?
Any recommendations of contract sales companies already doing this, if so?
