How It Started​

The Creator of the 5 Big Idea SiMPL Standards.

For fifteen years, Rich Jarvis has been working with inventors to help them take their ideas to market more successfully, with less risk and time. In 2012, he co-founded the Blueprints Lab, a firm dedicated to assisting academia, industry, and government organizations with commercialization. He has several patents and sits on the board of both for-profit and not-for-profit organizations.

In 2019, Rich began to question why 97% of inventions fail to commercialize in the United States.  In an effort to simplify the technology transfer and commercialization process at universities and in the U.S. military, SiMPL Ideas and The 5 SiMPL Standards were born. Since that time, SiMPL has helped many individuals and teams clarify their original ideas and transform them into high-value technologies, products, and companies.
