My name is Dale Davis and I'm the founder of Quest International, Inc. I started Quest International over 30 years ago on a part time basis to offer intellectual property consultation and marketing services to entrepreneurs and inventors. I have helped thousands of entrepreneurs start new businesses and protect their ideas. I have also patented and internationally licensed and marketed my own products.
I have experience working with the Department of Defense, Department of Energy, Intellectual Property Protection, Marketing, Product Design, Website Design & Marketing, Product Branding, Graphic Arts, Business Plans, Gaining Government Grants, Creative and Technical Writing, Business Start-Ups, Human Resources, and more. I'm also the author of 10 books.
I've always been creative and enjoy creating new products and services, but early in my career I discovered that there was a large gap in affordable services offered to new entrepreneurs. I also realized that it can take a considerable amount of cash and resources to get a product or service to the market, so I created a solution.
I have over 20 years of experience in Engineering and Design of new products and I have worked in both Research and Development and Intellectual Property Protection with many large companies like StairMaster, Lowrance Electronics, Zebco, and many other large manufacturing and oil companies.
I have hands on experience working with individual inventors as well as large governmental agencies. I've written educational curriculums for the Department of Energy and developed new products for the Department of Defense. This wide scope of experience allows me to bring a great deal of experience to my clients.
I have licensed, packaged, presented, and sold new products for a large variety of clients and I understand how to pave the way for new products and services. Most importantly, I know how to reduce development and operating cost. Taking new products to the market doesn't need to cost you thousands of dollars.
