Beware of this group, they are all tied together and putting money into each other's pockets claiming to be doing nothing other than "helping inventors".  Ken Durham has not lived up to his 100% money-back gaurantee and can't pay his bills.  This company took all of my money and the only way I will ever see a penny will be to hire an attorney and spend more money.  I get no return calls or responses to emails.  I would have to spend more to garnish his wages like other companies if I did win.  He has avoided court ordered actions for years.

Click on Litigant name search and look up Innovator's Warehouse or search case#  11CY-CV05315

Click Docket Entries to see the man didn't even have $3,000 to his name to pay back.

The first clue should have been that these three companies have been tied together from the start of IW and Innovator's warehouse hasn't been able to keep employees long term.  He recently promoted Jim Murphy and Zach Mandelstein to get my business, one being a financial genius and one suppposedly offering licensing experience like no other.  Both gone within weeks of turning in my contract.  Every voice you talk to will be the same one. 

Second clue should have been IW has already admitted to breach of contract on other complaints you can read here.  This is a pattern and this SCAM should be avoided at all cost.  There are many more reputable companies to do business with out there if you need advice on marketing and licensing. 

Third, the company doing the invention contest for the Kansas City Inventors Club is the company Ken's old boss (you can all read the history here on various reports) used to run.  Not only does stalking and harrassment of clients happen, but Ken appears to have issues in his personal life that lack professionalism, continuing to stalk and harrass his old company and its owners.

Ken Durham is not worried about anything other than next months rent and putting money in his own pocket.  He has stolen everything he currently owns and continues to try and make a name for himself in this industry.  This should be no surpise when he aligns himself with people who are famous for doing the same thing, even stealing profiles and personal information to post as their own successes, along with stalking and harrassing inventors who own products they claim to have the rights to. This is a very scary group and should be avoided at all cost.

Scott and Stephanie at it again

AUTHOR: concerned consumer - (United States of America)

Kenny,

I would like to take a moment and thank you and your company for the services that you have provided for me and my EasyClean duster product. When you first create a product as an inventor and are looking for someone to help take it to market you are bombarded by companies promising many things.  It can be very confusing and I have appreciated your honest approach as an individual and also Innovators Warehouse business model to introduce products into the market place the most effective and economical way.  I think its every inventors fear to be taken for thousands of dollars and get nowhere and you have the inventor in mind.

As a result of working with IW, I am currently working with a company which has access to 50,000 retail stores and I am very excited about the possibility of getting my product in stores.  I would recommend your services to any new inventor with a product or idea to use your services there at Innovators Warehouse.

Best Regards,

Dear Kenny,
Thank you very much for helping me sell my trademark. It was clear from the start that you knew exactly what you were doing. Not many companies can boast that they got their client five times more than the original offer. FIVE TIMES MORE!! Wow. All I can say is you exceeded my expectations and I look forward to working with you again.
Thanks,

LICENSING EXPERIENCE AT ITS BEST
I was first referred to Kenny Durham of Innovators Warehouse by Mark Reyland of United Inventors Association USA (www.uiausa.org).  Mark described Kenny to be a very honest and professional person.  I have since found that to be absolutely true!
As the owner of Around the Table games, I consulted with Kenny to help me prepare to search for a Licensee for my product line.  Ironically, I was offered a licensing agreement about that same time. So my focus with Kenny shifted to that of consultant. Kennys experience negotiating agreements allowed him to offer numerous suggestions that helped me to draft a comprehensive agreement while protecting my best interests.
I have found Kenny and the staff at Innovators Warehouse to be the most knowledgeable, professional and motivated group of people to work with. I have since referred numerous other inventors to Innovators Warehouse.
Innovators Warehouse is the perfect resource for inventors!

I spent countless hours trying to put together my own marketing plan, materials and contact list without any success. I was at a dead end and for my idea to make it anywhere I needed help. After working with the team at Innovators Warehouse, I feel like the ball is finally rolling. They have surpassed all my expectations when designing marketing materials and have gone above and beyond anything I could have asked for. On top of this, I feel confident they are getting my idea in front of all the right people. Im one step closer thanks to you.
