You have $10M to spend and we all know how easy it is to spend money.

From Innovation to Commercialization and Beyond - Mandy Haberman

From Innovation to Commercialization and Beyond - Mandy Haberman: "From Innovation to Commercialization and Beyond - Mandy Haberman
Inspired by her own child suffering from Stickler’s syndrome, graphic designer Mandy Haberman designed a feeder for babies with sucking difficulties. The Haberman feeder was patented in the UK in 1984 and Mandy Haberman initially set up her own company to commercialize the product worldwide before granting manufacturing and distribution licenses. The product’s success was significant, though the nature of the product limited its distribution to a very narrow market.
A few years later, Mandy Haberman, inspired this time by a friend’s child spilling blackcurrent juice over a cream coloured carpet, decided to set out to design a leak-proof cup that seals between sips and created the Anywayup® cup. In 1992, the first of many patents was filed (patent no. GB-B-2266045). The patent protected her idea that uses a slit valve to control the flow of liquid through the spout of trainer cup. Additional patents both for the UK and overseas were later filed and granted."

If you are already an entrepreneur, more education, including an MBA, will only slow you down. Consider it a waste of time.

holograms,bar codes for protection and identity: "Business Opportunities for Entrepreneurs in the field of Holograms
The Indian hologram market is growing at 18 percent per annum and has more than 38 players.There are three types of holograms — security, packaging, & promotional.Major players:Holostik, Holoflex, Alpha Lasertek, Everest Holovisions, Flex
Security: Security holograms have a market size of Rs. 145 crore. It is a technology-driven segment that needs constant
innovation. Around 35 players in India are manufacturing this type of hologram. It is a low-volume high-margin business.
Very high volume orders of security holograms become non-viable as the cost of manpower security is very high.
Packaging: This category has a Rs. 265 crore market, and is a high-volume, low-margin business. Here, the price competition
is greater as the customer buys the hologram not for its security feature, but just to ensure the presence of a hologram.
Hence, the customer looks for the cheapest option.
Promotional: Promotional holograms are a popular phenomenon abroad, but the trend does not seem to be catching on in India.
There are hardly any makers of such holograms, and its market is about Rs 80 lakhs. In the past, promotional holograms
have come in the form of tazzos in potato chips packets, but it has never shown any growth. The reason being that Indian
companies have still not identified it as a promotional vehicle.

Vinegar info - apple cider vinegar suppliers:
General, Patent, Product, Suppliers, Machinery, Uses, Company Profiles : "Vinegar is made by the oxidation of alcohol, either directly or through the medium of a ferment, or by the distillation of wood; the latter is known as pyroligneous acid.
The process by which vinegar is made is theoretically quite simple (liquid ingredients are fermented until they turn acidic, and then the resulting liquid is filtered and diluted) but the steps actually taken are many and complex.
The grapes are harvested and then cooked down to a 'must' (thick almost syrupy liquid) in copper cauldrons. It is then barreled, and here in lies the real secrets of the closely guarded family recipes. It is the type of wood, the aging and transferring of vinegar from barrel to barrel that makes the difference between balsamic vinegars.
The process is painstaking, slow and laborious, but worth every step. No shortcuts are taken, no inferior fruit picked, no spoiled wine made into vinegar: Minus 8 Vinegar is never boiled and never hurried."
