Steve Katsaros toured the Edison & Ford Winter Estates and four days later filed a patent and registration for the Nokero Solar Light Bulb. From idea to market took six months. Katsaros, inventor of the Nokero Light Bulb differs from most inventors he knows how to make a company out of an idea.
Tom Boyd, Nokero’s co-founder said, “If you have an idea, make it happen, connect with people who can make the product and protect your idea.” He advises all inventors to register for patents as soon as possible. Boyd uses the reach and power of the media to partner with several other energy industry companies such as Eureka Forbes who will be distributing Nokero’s bulbs. Nokero’s triple bottom line: people, plant, profit expands into emerging markets across 126 countries.
