The Innovation Institute (I2)

To the best of our knowledge, I2 is the oldest continuous program combining research and service to assist inventors and innovators in their efforts to conceive and commercialize potential new products, processes, and services. Our programs are now organized under the WIN (World Innovation Network) Innovation Center and the WIN Evaluation & Assessment Service.

Check out our background information for more information about our experience in innovation evaluation and assessment. There you will find information about the 34+ year history of the research and development behind our evaluation and assessment procedures. You’ll also find information on our various programs, including our PIES-XII/XIII invention evaluation service and our PAS-III product assessment service.

About Us

The WIN-I2 Innovation Evaluation Service is an inventor/innovator assistance service that provides inventors, entrepreneurs, and product marketing/manufacturing enterprises with an honest and objective third-party analysis of the risks and potential of their ideas, inventions, and new products.

To learn more, read our background information on invention evaluation; the Innovation Institute (we call it I2); and our primary service:  the PIES-XII/XIII, preliminary invention evaluation service.

I2 WIN Registration and Disclosure Forms

If you’ve decided an invention evaluation or product assessment is your next step, we’ve got the forms you need to get the process started.

In order to evaluate your new product idea, invention, or product, we will need some information about it. If you have an invention or new product idea, you will need our PIES XII/XIII Invention Registration and Disclosure Form. If you have a product that’s already being sold or that is fully market ready, the PIES system may still help you identify some areas of weakness (we will add additional criteria from our old PAS product assessment service).. We will need a completed Registration & Disclosure form and the appropriate fee before we can start your evaluation/assessment. You can print the appropriate form from your web browser or download the form (in common word processor formats) and print it at your leisure. (Note: If you are unable to print these forms for any reason, just e-mail us at or write to us at Innovation Institute, 17551 North Old #7, Sturgeon, MO 6284 and request a registration packet.)
