Innovators seek inventors with great ideas

Published:  30 July, 2010

Sheffield-based company Incub is looking for inventors with great ideas for new products.

The company, backed by manufacturers Gripple and Loadhog, has created the new company to help fast-track innovative new product ideas from inventors who lack the required skills, equipment or funding to turn their ideas into commercial realities.

During the development phase, the inventors called Cubs will be employed and have access to the companies' talented ideas and innovations, design, marketing, learning and development teams.

Alan Somerfield, Incub's ideas and innovations director, said: "The Cubs could be graduates, who have nurtured ideas during their time at university; product designers who have spotted an opportunity; or mature individuals with an idea yearning for a new challenge. Our door is wide open to them all. Once a product is ready to launch, they will be encouraged to grow their ideas into worldwide businesses, creating valuable jobs in South Yorkshire."

During the past three years, Sheffield-based Gripple and Loadhog have won three Queen's Awards and two best factory awards.
