Invention idea licensing...

Does anyone ever wonder if there is a better way to go about licensing invention ideas? Like for example, having a resourceful firm which provides funding for provisional/utility/design patent search & patenting, and maybe even international patenting costs.

This might minimize the cost of patenting while allowing for the patentholder to stay afloat during the licensing/marketing process which might take longer than expected.

I thought it might work as a venture capital firm, but for moderate/expensive patenting costs with financing options...

    I figured the firm would act as a funding liaison between patent attorneys, and clients, for patent search services, etc...
    The licensing prospectus might cover for patent attorney fees, and patenting costs, if licensing is acquired by an interested party.

    I think this business idea would really work out for individuals in need of the worry-free funding service it would provide for the patenting process. It's quick and easy to do, and it helps individuals get their ideas patented efficiently to get started on their business/product marketing.

    Let me know what you think.
